The powers that be at True Blood have issued a press release regarding the final season of this farce.
HIT SERIES TRUE BLOOD KICKS OFF ITS SEVENTH AND FINAL SEASON JUNE 22.
At the conclusion of season six of TRUE BLOOD, Sookie was forced to take a hard look at her future. Bill discovered that salvation comes at a price. And Eric’s ultimate fate remained a mystery. Meanwhile, the town of Bon Temps braced itself for a new crisis that would threaten humans and vampires alike.
TRUE BLOOD returns for its ten-episode, seventh and final season SUNDAY, JUNE 22 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO, followed by other new episodes on subsequent Sundays at the same time. Mixing romance, suspense, mystery and humor, the series takes place in a world where vampires and humans co-exist, after vampires have come out of the coffin, thanks to the invention of mass-produced synthetic blood that means they no longer need humans as a nutritional source.
The series follows waitress and part-faerie Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), who can hear people’s thoughts, and vampires Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) and Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgård). Created by Alan Ball, the show is based on the bestselling Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris.
Did I read that right about who the series follows? Did I read that it follows Sookie, Eric and Bill? I have to ask you, our faithful readers, since when? I thought it was the Bill and Sookie show!
I find that I can’t really give a rats arse anymore! They have given us a lot of Eric, don’t get me wrong but to make it seem as if he was part of the original premise of the show is stretching it a bit!
Moving on to the first two episode synopsis of the final season, remember we are in for a bumpy ride!
Episode #71: “Jesus Gonna Be Here”: A band of rogue H-vamps crashes the vampire-human mixer at Bellefleur’s, withshocking results. As Sookie (Anna Paquin) seeks refuge from accusations that she’s somehow to blame for the chaos in Bon Temps, the “one vampire for every human” plan moves forward. In the face of a vigilante insurrection led by redneck Vince (Brett Rickaby), Bill (Stephen Moyer) receives aid from an unexpected source.Written by Angela Robinson; directed by Stephen Moyer.
Episode #72: “I Found You”Debut: A trio of hostages taken in the Bellefleur’s attack looks to a familiar face as apossible liberator from the H-vamps. Sookie and Jason (Ryan Kwanten) visit the neighboring town of Saint Alice, where a young woman’s diary offers clues to the potential fate of Bon Temps. Spurned by Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis), a desperate Lettie Mae (Adina Porter) turns to Willa (Amelia Rose Blaire) to channel her family past. Vince whips his fellow vigilantes into a dangerous frenzy. Pam’s (Kristin Bauer van Straten) search for her maker leads her to a very familiar place.Written by Kate Barnow; directed by Howard Deutch.
Not that I care about Sookie all that much anymore due to how she has been written, how can she possibly be to blame for what happens in the first episode? This is where the writers baffle me to no end. The Governor and his cohorts are one of those to blame for poisoning the synthetic blood. Second to blame would be Bill for blowing up the factories in the first place but all this is moot now anyway!
