If ever there was a Season that made us all bleed in someway… it would be Season 4 of True Blood. Please score till your hearts content like you have done for Season 3 … I am sure you see the method to my madness now :)

But if not, please score each episode with between 1-10 (10 being best and 1 being worst).


About B

Really, there is never enough Eric... I'm loyal to the Viking, no matter what. I will love him whether in Book, Show, and just because... my first thoughts are of him and I close my eyes to dream of him. As far as I'm concerned, the night can not get here soon enough.

  1. I hated the fact Bill still continued to manipulate things between Eric and Sookie through the blood he continued to feed her

  2. This season left me so emotionally raw…One minute I was euphoric, another minute I was depressed and yet another minute I was cursing and shouting. So I really don’t know how to rate each episode. I know ep 4 and 5 were my favourite though. But I hated the part when Sookie said she loved Eric but she loved Bill too….That, ladies and gents, was the most preposterous statement I’d heard on True Blood till that moment.

  3. This was my favorite season of TB for the obvious reason of Sookie and Eric finally getting it on for real and not some “dream”. But other than that the witch stuff was dumb and nothing like the books (although Sookie and Eric did have a couple of lines that came from the book). Other than that the seasons’ downfall came along with the Narnia Shower and continued its’ downward spiral right into the final eppy of the debacle of the matching robes and Sookie saying she loved both of them and walked away from them both. What a Dumbass!!! I would never have walked away from Eric, especially after he said that he really loved her………..that final eppy spoiled the whole season 4 for me..

    • I’ve actually changed my mind on Narnia… I think they were in a part of fairy… I mean… The portal was in her bathroom (Niall popped back through at the right time, right)… He drank her blood… And he had an easy time jump in into the faemetary to get warlows blood… So I’m not sure any more

      • I know “Shower Narnia” really divided the fandom but I completely loved it. I really felt that Alan Ball tried to do something special with that scene, and I love it all from the blood exchange, them in the shower and then on the bed in the forest *sigh*. A gorgeous moment in time, shame it’s unlikely the show will give us anything else quite like it again :(

  4. Loved the first episode. I liked the Fairy aspect and was very excited about it all. I laughed when Bill was revealed as King. It was so preposterous and unexpected. It was all OK until after episode 6. Then it all started downhill. The threesome was stupid but the finale where she says no to Eric was just the end for me. The entire series was just a downward spiral from there. AB and co. just never got it. We really don’t like Bill and we really don’t like a stupid Sookie. The only way they can get them together is if they make her so stupid that she cannot walk and chew gum at the same time because then she cannot see all the wrong Bill has done to her. Perhaps living in Hollywood has exposed them to such stupid females but those of us in the real world know better.

  5. When it comes to Season 4 I loved it~especially the scenes between
    Sookie and Eric Northman,when she kept him safe from the witches.
    And I loved how amnesia Eric let his “human side” come throught and he showed
    what he was before he was turned. I really loved the monologue that he said after he’d been zapped it showed his true feelings~ till it was all spoiled by Sookie saying
    the line “But I still love Bill!” I wanted to kill her!! How could she?

    Now I don’t know if I could pick the best/worst of season 4.
    All of the episodes with Eric in them were 10’s.
    and all the one’s without him and with William Thomas Compton in them
    were 1’s in my ~ and some were 7’s .

  6. Bill scenes were a joke . But I loved all the rest mainly of Eric of course

  7. […] gave you a few days extra after the 4th season post, are you ready to score the […]
