As you Truebies know, Alexander Skarsgard was at Sundance and he gave some vague details about the upcoming season of True Blood.
“There’s a big war coming up — a big war.” This is in regards to Billith and he went on to say that “Bill will be back.”
Not to be outshone by the Swede, True Blood creator Alan Ball stated that the creature named Warlow will be defined in season 6. What that means for Sookie, only time will tell. I’m just happy that she has a new potential love interest in season 6.
Yes, yes… I know the season has gone and we are all in major withdrawal. It seems that even the magazines are trying to fill the void. Which leads me to the latest issue of Cosmo and in their Star Spotting section they polled readers who they thought was hotter, the good guy or the residential bad boy of some of your favorite shows on TV. Well, they had your typical comparisons, such as Jon Snow vs. Jamie Lannister (HBO’s Game of Thrones) and Stefan Salvatore vs. Ian Somerhalder (CW’s The Vampire Diaries) and then they asked the following:
Well, we wanted to know, who would you want to fill your void. Sorry, I could not help it. ;-D Any who the question I have for you is do you agree with the results of their poll and why?

Support a worthy cause! Kristin Bauer van Straten (Pam on True Blood) is auctioning off a sexy piece of authentic True Blood wardrobe in support of her documentary ‘Out for Africa’. This documentary gives the viewer a Kenyan’s perspective on the crisis that the Elephants and Rhinos face in their homeland due to rampant poaching for the ivory and horn trades to supply the growing Asian market.
The item up for auction on eBay right now is the bra worn by Anna Paquin in the openings scene of episode 4.06 “I Wish I Was The Moon” of True Blood when Sookie makes out with Eric (Alexander Skarsgard).Anna Paquin signed the bra strap and if you would like to click on the bra, click on the following link: http://tinyurl.com/cewfry4
The auction winner will also receive a 8×10 photo of Pam signed personalized with his/her name by Kristin Bauer van Straten.
Click here to support Kristen Bauer van Straten’s efforts to help the Elephants and Rhinos of Kenya. Rhino in the wild have now gone extinct. Poaching for Elephant ivory and Rhino horn is at an all-time high. In 2011, more elephant tusks were seized than in any year since 1989 when the ivory trade was banned. Accelerated poaching made 2011 the worst year for the Rhino. The Western Black Rhino has now gone extinct entirely. If we don’t do more it is likely Elephants in the wild will also be extinct in our lifetime.
The True Blood Costume Department donated the bra to Kristin Bauer van Straten in support of her ongoing fundraiser to finance the documentary Out for Africa that Kristin and her husband Abri van Straten is shooting this now in Kenya.
Other items for auction are first edition hardcovers ‘Definitely Dead’ and ‘A Touch Of Dead’ signed by Charlaine Harris, the writer of the books that True Blood is based on.
Listen to Kelly and Maria recap the season finale of True Blood, the last season of Teen Wolf and the current seasons of Lost Girl and Grimm. They will also go over all the news and spoilers that are fit to talk about. Finally, for SBLC, Kelly reviews Take it Like a Vamp by Candace Havens.

What a season! Kudos to the True Blood crew for giving us the best season we’ve ever had and we cannot wait to see the 6th season. We were not totally surprised by those that passed away, but we will most definitely miss Russell Edington. His crazy made us go crazy. With that stated, here is the complete list of characters that passed away during the season finale.
Chelsea the Receptionist
Now, let’s get on with the recap!
Besides all the death and mayhem, I just want to first jump for utter joy because Eric was awesome tonight!
Between offing Russell:
Bickering with Jason:
Protecting his progeny:
Sharing a moment with Pam:
Bothering his sister:
And attempting to save Bill from himself:
Eric had a banner night!
Other highlights of note:
Well, Maurella finally popped after ingesting a container of table salt and Andy did not only become a daddy to one bouncing baby girl, but 4:
Unfortunately for Andy and the somewhat understanding Holly, Maurella up and left and left the rearing of the babies to Andy as part of their pact. Nice parenting Maurella. God help you Andy. Btw, I wish child birth was that enjoyable, I would have had 50 kids if it was that orgasmic?
Sam and Luna continued to try to save Emma and they came up with the brilliant plan that consisted of Luna shifting into Steve so she could smuggle Emma out of the Authority compound. It was going to work, but then Roslyn showed up and dragged whom she believed was Steve to do an interview for damage control. As expected, Luna turned back to her normal self and before Roslyn could get her mitts on her… Sam buzzed his fly self into Rosalyn’s mouth… if that’s not love than I don’t know what is.
The question for season 6 is… will Luna survive? Remember, every time a Shifter changes into a another human the weaker they become mentally and physically.
The pack storyline was not my favorite, but it was completed (or so we think). So, we saw Alcide, his Dad and Emma’s grandmother go into the pack to get it back and set it on the straight and narrow. We watched Alcide pummel J.D. to death. Unfortunately, he had to ingest vampire blood to do so. The question is, is this the end of Alcide’s troubles or will we see him suffer the repercussions for what he did tonight in Season 6?
So the mystery of Warlo continues:
Big question for Season 6 is how does Nora know Warlo?
So, let’s go into the storyline that we saw coming and damn it… they are the best True Blood couple, hands down!
Jessica: Sookie could you get these doors?
Sookie: Oh right cuz ya’ll are vampires and these are silver doors duh
Sookie: *opens Jess’s door*
Sookie: *goes to open Pam’s door*
Tara: *fucking opens it anway*
Jessica: I knew it
Where the official shipping of Para or Tam (Pam+Tara) was born tonight, Jessica totally lost Jason. Jason is in full on delusional mode. He is now being haunted by the hallucinations of his parents and they are feeding him this ire that is coming from that deep seeded issue he has had with vampires since he found out that his parents were killed by Warlo. This has resulted in Jason hating all of vampdom and that includes Jessica.
Will Jessica reach the old Jason is Season 6 and save him from all this crazy-talk or will we see Jason end up killing Jessica? The torture…
Towards the end of the episode the group split, Eric and Sookie stayed behind to save Bill and the rest were escaping which is when we got a bonus scene (from HBO) and that was what was going on in the lift:
While everyone else is taking down the compound, Eric and Sookie go looking for Bill. They tried to make Bill understand that he was under the influence, but he was not going to give in and for a brief moment we thought we lost one of the key players in the True Blood universe.
We should know better now, because Alan Ball and the writers of HBO would not let that happen and we were given the biggest shock of the tv year!
So, we got this picture from the Season Finale of True Blood and we were wondering what could we assess from this image?
1. Eric has gone to Fangtasia for Pam and sees that she is gone and has found out that she has been arrested by the Authority. That is why Tara is in tow.
2. Knowing that the key to rescuing Bill from his religious fervor is Sookie, Eric goes to Sookie’s house and finds out by Jason that Russell has imbibed on Fae blood and is after all the fae in the county and that includes Sookie.
3. He may also find out about Warlow and the big question is… who does Eric save? Pam, Bill or Sookie. Yes, I’m making life miserable for all of you? But, I like to figure stuff out?
The one thing for sure is that we learned that Eric Northman fans would be happy with the character at the end of the season.
