  1. Thanks Nymerias! ^^
    It’s been a pleasure :) when you want, we are always willing to collaborate with you… and especially to remain faithful to the true spirit of journalism! :D

  2. In the beginning….that is how the Holy Bible begins.
    Is Season Five really going to be the telling of the story of Vampires?
    And is Salome going to have a big part in the telling of this story??
    This is getting really interesting, can’t wait for TrueBlood to return!!
    Sunday,June 10th can’t get here fast enough for me!!!

  3. I know I probably sound like a broken record, but I don’t want to get my hopes up. I did that last year and got them smashed. I will be taking it one episode at a time and skeptical at that.

    • There is nothing wrong with that and a lot of fans are feeling the exact same way. With the major let down of last season, most of the viewers are going in tentatively. I do not have my hopes at all on this being a stellar season and critics are giving off the same vibe. We shall see!

  4. Hopeless,it sounds like a song from Breaking Benjamin’s newest album. “In beginning”,Probably it’s a flashback ep like Tim Kring & would explain what had happened the year where Sookie gone.

  5. i can only say one thing for the last few episodes FIGHT!!!! oh and please kill of the llama?! as it too much too ask?

  6. Please God no!!!!! Eric Don’t want Die!!!!!! It says “final”,I Hope not the last ep of Alex. If it is, I Will Quit watching it & I don’t even care if it gets cancel. I don’t want Sookie falls in hands of Sicko Billy.

    • Shelli,

      I took the “In the Season 5 finale Eric embarks on a final, desperate mission” as this is his last chance to do these things, his last shot so to speak. With that said, I do believe we will be left with a major cliffhanger.

    • I don’t think he will die, Shelli. You said it yourself…you would quit watching. Many others feel the same way too. I don’t think TB is THAT stupid. Alex is the reason many of us are still watching, after that travesty of last season. That being said, I don’t think you should be worried ;)

      • I don’t think they are that stupid but I think Eric’s life will be in danger as the cliff hanger and Bill will go into season 6 as this dark evil vampire that Eric couldn’t save……that’s how i think it will go but these writers are stupid most times so it might be the opposite of that lol
