That didn’t suck [True Blood – You’ll Be The Death Of Me]
The True Blood finale was not the best episode of the first season – some of it felt a little abrupt and weirdly rushed. But. It was still pretty awesome, you guys!
So Rene is indeed the killer – how ’bout that. I gotta admit: I didn’t pick it (my money was on Hoyt, who I theorised was driven to kill by latent Mother Issues). Funniest part of the climactic revelation: Arlene discovering Rene’s stash of vamper porn and his How To Talk Cajun tape. Hee.
Speaking of Arlene, she’s one of the few problems I had with the finale. Seriously: she discovers her husband-to-be is a twisted psycho, then later the same day she’s crackin’ wise about getting Sookie to read her next boyfriend’s mind? Then two weeks later, she’s flirting with Terry down at Sam’s? Wha? I know Arlene has been married like a billion times, so Rene probably isn’t the first of her partners to harbour a terrible secret, but still. Shouldn’t she be horribly traumatised that this happened?:
(Also, did anyone else have no idea that Terry the disturbed Iraq war veteran is meant to be Andy’s son?) (Also, it was sweet when Sookie called Andy Detective Bellefleur – nice callback to the first episode.)
I hope you like your Bill served extra toasty:
Ouch. I sort of expected him to take longer to heal, or at least to have some burn scars or something, but I guess the powers of vampers are strange and mysterious. And having to look after that annoying vampire he made seems like it’s going to be punishment enough.
Of course Jason is a vampire-hating fundamentalist now:
If this happened to any other character I would call shenanigans, but Jason is exactly stupid enough to fall for this kind of shit.
And what is going on with this?:
Oooooh there’s some fucked-up shit going on here – I don’t know what fucked-up shit Maryann is pulling on Tara, but I don’t like it. The fact that she not only knows Sam but clearly scares the shit out of him spells bad news.
And Lafayette is totally dead:
