With just 3 episodes to go we are reaching the business end of True Blood Season 6 and the critics and fans alike so far have been more than slightly impressed. TV.com have followed the show since the beginning (and do some pretty awesome recaps), and today they have outlined the reasons they think Season 6 is one of the best yet.
Both Sookie and Eric feature heavily within their 5 reasons the show is currently so good.
And perhaps best of all, Sookie is currently in the middle of story that’s both surprisingly interesting and that has kept her isolated from the main narrative. It’s only a matter of time before something terrible happens to her and she makes a speech about not wanting to deal with supernaturals again, but I appreciate that her current attitude is basically, “Meh, screw it. This is what I do.” Anna Paquin is really good when Sookie isn’t weighed down by DRAMA, and she’s proven that again in Season 6.
Nora’s demise last week wasn’t as powerful, but the episode did a fine job of installing a sense of dread, building up to that final moment. And it was an important scene for Eric, the show’s best character, which made it even better. It just feels like anything could happen on True Blood again, which isn’t something I would have said during the past two or three seasons.
True Blood works best when Eric’s at the center, scheming and plotting his way through one seemingly impossible situation after another, and his maneuvering this season has been better than ever.

Let’s hope that opinions are still as high at the end of this month, when all 10 episodes have aired!
