We’re always reading True Blood reviews from other fansites, blogs and websites, and we found these and thought they pretty much summed up what we’re thinking too. We JUST had to share them with you. Hope you don’t mind…
WARNING: SPOILER ALERT! If you haven’t watched the episode yet…these WILL contain spoilers for you! Read at your own risk!
We’ve quoted some highlights from these reviews which we happen to agree with or like or just want you to see.

This first one comes to us from Hollywood Life;
And that was it. That was the big season finale we’ve all been waiting for. While I appreciate the show obviously trying to get back to its small-town roots, and while I also believe Alexander’s penis deserves a guest-star Emmy nomination, I just feel like there was no closure — aside from the death of Warlow, of course, which actually kind of bummed me out. I wish they hadn’t completely turned his character around on a dime. It felt cheap.
As for Eric, his death — if that’s really what happened — was definitely the biggest blunder of the hour.
Nay, the series.
This next one is from HBO Watch;
Now look, we all know that if Eric dies, the show is over. We could do a poll right here and know who would watch the show without Eric, and I guarantee that at least 80% of people would no longer watch. Also: there’s shade right nearby. He can vamp run into that. AND Pam was flying to find him. She’s going to scoop in at the last minute and save him. If “True Blood” actually kills off Eric, NO ONE will watch anymore. Please tell me that the show understands this very simply principle.
Haha…one of the other staff writers had this to add to this review which we couldn’t help sharing with you.
Tamara: I could have eaten a box of Alphabits and crapped a better script than that.
Thank you, HBO Watch for making me spit out my bowl of Alphabits while reading, and the gifs were pretty awesome too. We LOVE angry Panda. LOL
Lastly, True Blood Wetpaint had this to say about the finale;
Let the record show that we totally called Alcide and Sookie hooking up, even though it makes no sense. They barely said a word to each other all season, then they reconnected at Terry’s funeral and were happy and living together in the six-month time jump. Umm, OK…
About Eric, the heart and soul of the show, who may be dead. Once the powers of Lillith’s blood disappeared with Warlow, the vamps who drank it could no longer day-walk anymore. Eric was lounging naked and reading in the middle of nowhere (well, somewhere in snow-covered Sweden) and erupted into flames and potentially died. Oh, and the show gave us no answers in the strange six-month time jump, so both he and Pam could be dead (they weren’t seen or talked about in the future). If they both perished so unceremoniously, we might have to quit watching.
As for that time jump in general, we don’t really have anything to say.
Oh TB Wetpaint..for once we agree with you on these things above. We don’t really have anything to say either…not anything good – at any rate.
