I know, it has gotten so ridiculous. But it is the final season! Are you sad? Are you excited?

Excited, still interested, but the trailers are making the new season look all over the place. I can't even tell what the plot is.

Spoiler: show
So what did everyone think of episode 1? I was pretty disappointed, but after 6 seasons I'll see the show through to the end. Tara's "death" didn't have much impact for me, it felt way too sudden and random, and an obvious bait and switch since it was off screen, and Pam had no visible reaction.


Your wish...

Is this the kind of thing that should be spoiler-tagged? Am I spoiler-tag happy?

Spoiler: show
So you don't think she's really dead?

(I don't think she is, I think she glamored her mother into thinking she is and is off being a secret agent vampire of some sort.)

Post won't let me edit now, but if a mod could slap some spoiler tags in there I'd be grateful :)

Spoiler: show
I'm highly skeptical. Maybe they don't care much since it's now the final season, but up until now no main character has died. They always have really long, drawn-out scenes where the writers try to make you think they might kick the bucket (Like when Tara got shot with the shotgun and turned into a vampire, or Eric and Bill's scenes with The Authority) only for them to inevitably keep living. Plus, Pam had really visceral reactions to Tara being in danger in the past, so it makes no sense that Tara would die and Pam's reaction wouldn't be shown.

I agree about Tara's "death."

Lafayette continues to be my favorite. I wonder if he is going to hook up with Jessica's man candy?

I know Sookie is the centerpiece of this show, but she is so darn dim witted sometimes, I wish she would just get mauled by a pack of vamps.

I think everyone has been wishing that for many seasons now.

Felt really rushed and awkward. I was honestly pretty bored. I don't have high hopes for this season, but I've watched the entire series and read the books, so I'm holding out.

I feel the same way about Tara, that it wouldn't have been that unceremonious, but I'm also wondering about actors trying to leave the show, and that maybe they're lazily writing them off.

(You don't have to spoiler tag stuff. It's just assumed that you're up-to-date if you're in a current show thread.)

I don't understand the disease at all, either. When it affected the concentration camp vamps in season 6 they died quickly, and in Nora's case she rapidly became bedridden with weakness, despite being a very powerful vampire. This zombie-esque disease they have going on now seems completely different.

<3 Lafayette <3

I totally thought he was going to smooch it up with the man candy vamp too but the man candy vamp has other...ideas I guess?

This has gotten really bad, you guys. The last episode was the most tolerable from this season, but ugh. It just feels so disjointed and all over the place, and main characters are dying so unceremoniously. Just wrap it up in a way that makes sense and let's get it over with. =\

I finally caught up with the entire series this week. If this show was a person it'd be a frenemy - I sort of loathe it but I keep watching for some reason. I'm glad the fairy crepe seems to be over and its back to just vampires, but yes, it's like the writers threw in the towel and on their re-writes are are like "let's be 'shocking' so who should we just dump this week?" And my god is Sookie annoying. Is she supposed to be this awful? Why are all of these men falling at her feet? I'd want to push her into traffic or feed her to a vampire or something.

Ugh, just ugh.

So any speculation on who bites the dust next? Jason maybe?
How do you think it's going to end? (If anyone is still watching, that is)

Its terrible, I'm just watching because I have put so much time in already, which is sad in itself.

It was nice to finally see Jessica's boobs though.

I'm just finding it really funny. The bar is set pretty low though.

At this point it feels like the writers are having an in-house contest to top each other for worst episode.

sometimes i think my standards are just lower than a lot of other people's, because i'm not hating this season at all. ha! i was pretty bummed about alcide getting killed off, but otherwise it's generally holding my interest. jessica is amazing, as always. and lafayette. and pam + eric.

I don't hate it either! I just don't like it nearly as much as season's past...
But still, I think the season has been mostly fun/funny so far (not sure if that is what the writers were going for though.) I was fine with Alcide going away, but I'm not okay with this Bill/Sookie crepe. Also, the blahblahblah boring Bill flashbacks.
90's Eric and Pam are my fave, obvs, and I love the Ginger backstory. Eric dressed like Brandon Walsh was amazing. They should just make a spinoff of these characters basically.
Jason is in deep shiitake.

i just finished the episode where alcide dies. he was my favorite eye candy so i'm a little bum that won't see him shirtless anymore. :)

but in general, while this season is chaotic and all over the place, i think it's a million times better than the endless lilith nonsense. as long as nothing happens to lafayette, i'm watching the rest of the season.

I know, right? 80's Pam was pretty epic, too.

I was so charmed by Ginger pre-glamour-ramaing. I would totally have been friends with her.

Huh, people don't like it? I think it's the best season in years, actually one of my favourites (so far), no Billith, no boring witches, no pointless were-panthers... And it's so over the top (...Yakuza in Fast and Furious cars! :D) that's what I love about the show + lots of Lafayette, Pam and Eric, win! I'm sure if this season keeps going like this I'll miss it so much more.

I think I'm going to miss the io9 pro/con recaps the most. I look forward to them every week.

will this season have 10 or 12 episodes? the way episode 9 ended with bill going to sookie's house made it look like there's only one episode left
