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!
All praise Billith…
The shit is on…
Season 6 is going to be amazing!
With that said…
and waiting sucks!

This podcast was recorded on August 25, 2012.
It’s Maria again and all I have to say is is that tonight’s Episode of True Blood was amazing. I know many of you are wondering where the show made a left turn? Yet, I think you are so entrenched in wanting your favorite characters to be the hero or have a happily ever after… that you forget what really is important in the long run and that is that the show has to be fun to watch.
In seasons past we were not fans at how True Blood wrapped up their seasons. They always petered out as the seasons drew to a close. The story arcs, this season, have been written in such a way that you didn’t feel cheated. As I stated before, the minor story lines were completed early on which gave the writers more time to focus on the main story lines which revolve around Sookie/Fae/Vampires, Eric/Nora vs. Lilith, Sam and Luna looking for Emma, Pam and Tara vs. The Authority and finally the Herveaux Pack issue.
Now, I get most of you are pissed off at Bill, but he is under the influence of enemy #1…
She is the equivalent of bath salts, who ever gets a taste of her ends up becoming a homicidal fundamentalist.
Lilith is not only under Bill’s skin, she is also under Salome’s skin.. Yet, Bill has taken it to a whole new level. Not only has he offed a fellow Authority member due to his jealous tendencies, but he also backhanded Jessica because she refused to turn Jason. These moments have made Bill shippers hate True Blood. I have to admit that Bill will have to do a lot to win everyone over again.
There were some great bits to tonight’s episode and I want to highlight the star of this season and that is Jason Stackhouse. What? You don’t think so? Well, this is a character that has yet again gone through the ringer. He came to the realization that sex is not the answer for everything, nor does it fix everything. He has also learned that friendships are a prized commodity and once you lose a friend, you feel like a ship without a sail. He also understands that he has to lead the charge, even when there is a chance he may not come out of it alive.
Which leads to the picture that had everyone going bonkers all week long:
Happily, Jason was not turned into a vampire in this episode, the aforementioned picture just showed us how Jessica duped two authority agents. Jason just played dead and with wooden bullets in his sidearm he offed the two agents and then he listened to Jessica explain to Jason that if she had a choice in who she would spend an eternity with… it would be with him. But, this would not deter Jason from what was really important and that was to protect his sister from the impending doom headed her way and that was Russell and Steve.
Later on Jason decided to go off and head Russell and Steve off at the pass. Unfortunately, Jason was overtaken by Russell and Steve:
These three together are some kind of awesome. We’ll return to this bit of story in a bit and I want to switch over to Pam and Tara.
Pam took the hit for Tara’s crime of killing off the new Sheriff of Area 5, but that was not the highlight that had me go “Yeah!” Yes, Jessica asked the question that we were wondering about:
Denying something so adamantly as Tara did tells you that she does harbor some kind of feeling for Pam. When Pam took the bullet for Tara, you know that the feeling is mutual. The question is… is this more parental love on Pam’s behalf or does she too kind of like her.
Jessica had asked Pam if she could use Fangtasia has a hideout, but that was short-lived. As I stated earlier in this post, Bill was not too pleased with his progeny when she did not follow through with turning Jason. Now we are wondering if she will make it to season 6.
Surprisingly, Nora and Eric are now on the same side and with being under so much stress and being under the watchful eye of the authority, they did what normal every day vampire siblings do to alleviate stress:
I have to preface this with the fact that that moment that led up to his scene was very intense and very tender, these two feel like they are the only two individuals in the world that know what the Authority is up to and the only ones that can stop the insanity.
Sam and Luna have made it into the Authority and they have seen Emma:
But then they were caught and Sam decided to come up with a scheme to protect Emma and Luna, who both stayed behind bars, and that was to become dinner for someone from the Authority’s upper echelons. Of course, now the Authority compound is the crossroads for a potential battlefield.
The faes were a major part of tonight’s episode, unfortunately all they managed to do was cause more crap to happen. Most notably with Russell Edgington.We meet the fae elder and after an interesting q&a with Sookie we learn that she cannot speak of Warlo, but when she learns about Russell still being alive… well it does not end well for the fae elder. Russell fed on her until she was dust and now he has his eyes set on the rest of the Fae clan of Bon Temps. Yes, it does not look good for Sookie.
Not only is Andy Bellefleur related to Bill Compton, but he just learned that he will be the baby daddy of a bouncing baby fae. He did not take it well because the last time he saw Maurella she did not look pregnant and that was a week ago (A week ago?!?!?!?!). Now the only reason he found this out was that Maurella decided to pop up at Merlotte’s to call in the pact she made with Andy. He tries to balk, but she tells him that it will be death if he does not follow through.
The last bit I want to highlight is the Herveaux clan, which is basically him and his Dad.
After spending the last couple of episodes wondering why Alcide had run off to be with his deadbeat of a Dad, we see the greatness of his father for the first time. When Alcide jumped into the fray to protect the locals from some baby vamps and then became overwhelmed, his Dad came to the rescue and saved Alcide.
Overall, the was another awesome episode and I cannot wait to see the finale.
Synopsis of Save Yourself: Eric makes a final and desperate attempt to bring down the Authority and, at the same time, save Bill from losing his humanity. Alcide gets ready for a second confrontation with JD. Sam and Luna must use all their resources in order to escape from the Authority. Andy must deal with the consequences of a deal he made.
What did you think of the episode?
Recap from HBO:
Baby Vamp Jessica: Pam’s Halfway House for Wayward Baby Vamps
I feel like Little Orphan Annie. Only without Punjab and Miss Farrell. And my Daddy Warbucks turned out to be batshit. A phony. What are the odds? Crappy human parents AND a crappy maker… It just don’t seem fair. So here I am, stuck hiding in the basement of Fangtasia because I got nowhere else to go.
It’s funny how quickly things can change. How life can be so good and so rich and so perfect, and then it’s all swept away from you in an instant. First it was Hoyt. Those feelings I had for him — the love, the lightning — I woke up one day and they were gone. Nowhere to be seen or heard from ever again. And then this. Order in the vampire world just falling apart, my maker at the center of it all. It feels like only yesterday I was partying with those UNL kids, making out with Jason, feeding from hot guys whenever I felt like it. And now I’m just trying to make it through the night in Pam’s Halfway House for Wayward Baby Vamps.
I hope Tara really does bring me a fangbanger…
Preview of the Season Finale:
With only three episode left in the season, we are biting our nails to the nub wondering who will and will not survive this season of True Blood. This ominous feeling is not helped with episode titles such as, “Gone, Gone, Gone.”
The synopsis for the episode is: With vampire attacks are on the rise, Bill starts a public relations campaign to gain public favor. Nora, on the other hand, is having a hard time selling Lilith’s gospel to Eric. Jason’s discovery of a mysterious scroll could reveal details about his family history. The new sheriff of Area 5 presses Pam and Tara to obey a new directive. Sam and Luna search for Emma. Russell seeks out his destiny.
Shake your fists to the sky and take deep breaths, these last few episodes are going to be a roller coaster of a ride.
Let’s see where the rabbit hole leads us next…
