So I’m guessing it’s safe to say that me and my mother and the many hundreds of thousands of other fans have to officially say goodbye to the Bill that we have loved for 4 and a half seasons. The sexy, southern gentleman, who loved Sookie more than he could ever love himself, and only wanted what was for the best. He has shockingly and in incredible CGI fashion become Billith. My jaw was on the floor. I waited a few days to write this because I had to rewatch the episode again, it was so thrilling and far out. Goodbye my dear Bill. We’ll have to wait and see what becomes of you.
Eric came through as the handsome, chivalrous hero and I swooned when he stabbed Russell. What a fantastic opening scene.
The description of brave sexy hero also fits Sam, when he exploded inside of Roslyn, played all season with delightful aggression by character actress Carolyn Hennesy. I cheered outloud! The True Blood team continues to out do themselves as far as inventive ways to kill people. And Sam is so damn courageous, its crazy hot!
Lastly, Tara and Pam’s reunion kiss was so romantic and their back and forth comments leading up to it could not have been any better. Great turn of events!
Overall, as stated, they really outdid themselves with the special effects in this season finale and set up some interesting (Billith, Tara and Pam) and some not so interesting as of yet (Andy and his alien babies, Jason being a depressed ramb0) story lines. I cannot believe we have to wait a whole 10 months to find out what happens. I know you can all join me in saying…Waiting sucks!!

So this season has been pretty twisted. But I guess all of them have been. And this show has moments that can be so bad their great. Overall, I have enjoyed this season as much as any other because I am a die-hard fan.
I am still heartbroken that Bill is the Big Baddy this season (a term coined by Mr. Alan Ball himself to describe each season’s villian). It’s so sad how Bill is basically a possessed version of the Bill we have fallen in love with over the last four seasons. When he finally saw Jessica again, the way Jessica looked at him, like “who the hell are you?” is how fans have been seeing him for weeks. There was a time throughout the middle of the season that we still had hope that it was all a scheme to get them out of there and make things right. Even after two episodes ago, when he ratted out Eric and the lovable Molly, played wonderfully by Tina Majorino. But last week’s ep proved those hopes to be in vain. Apparently, not only did waiting suck this year, but Bill does too.
Eric is the hero and I am loving him. Pam is one of my other favorite characters this season and the dyad of her and Tara has brought incredible new light to Tara’s part and is one of the highlights of the season. One of the best lines of the season was when Tara called Pam “Vampire Barbie,” and then Pam walked away almost robotically, which gave us all a moment to think to ourselves, “holy shit, she is Vampire Barbie!” Classic.
Also, Jason has become a badass, finally. This guy needed some loving this season after sorta being a loser since the show began. He makes a pretty hot cop, I must say.
I am so excited to see what happens tonight and for the moment when Pam and Eric finally reunite. Also, I’m guessing it’s over for Sookie and Bill forever. If she ever finds out that he’s behind everything, she’ll never forgive him. Oh well, I still held a candle for Team Billkie, for lack of a better combo name.
ENJOY THE FINALE EVERYONE!!!
Bill and Eric.
Not a bad way to end a nice summer weekend.
