    So much for spoilers, huh, champ?

    I'm betting money that

    they don't kill Russell off. In many ways he is the perfect villain for this show. Or if they do, it won't be in some serious confrontation, it will be fucking retarded, like Jason capping him in the back when he wakes up. Also, what the hell happened to the Mexican subplot with Lafayette? Preggy MexiCan shoots dude with no real reason, no explanation other than "I'm livin la vida loca" and Lafayette is just done? That seemed unfinished. Also, in the finale, I think that Bill sees Sam and snaps out of this shit, just in time to do something like save Pam/Sookie/Jessica and murder another member of the Board of Annoying Twats.

    Robert Patrick as a crazy, redneck werewolf was my favorite surprise, but so fart they haven't done much with it and I'm hoping that changes.

    Also, you are right: every fucking finale for this show has been abysmal, so I'm not exactly hoping for a satisfying conclusion.

    And for the final time with this show: fuck the fairy nonsense.

    Shit.

    I guess they really bucked the odds. That was the best season finale yet. The opening and closing being the shockers of the season. That was probably the bloodiest episode ever in the series.

    Jason was a fucking IDIOT that episode, and the John Woo shit in the authority lobby was dumbass. But Jesus, talk about a fucked-up cliffhanger. They really went all the way with Bill, huh?

    Best finale of that show that I've seen.

    The bar scene was hysterical, especially Lafayette and Arlene.

    Also, watching Tara and Pam make out wasn't a low point. Next time, instead of Jessica watching.....So, I take it the season 6 plot will be "Eric's Big Vampy Family vs. Bill the Super Vampire? Good, it's about time Bill became a decent villain.

    I got distracted watching this episode because all I could imagine was all the effects guys giggling to each other shouting, "Okay okay, what are we going to cover with blood next?!"

    I do love how Lafayette has gravitated back to the cocky drag queen I liked so much from season one. The producers must have sensed fan hostility towards his shitty side-adventures.

    Bill is the last person on this entire show I would pick to be the ultimate villain. And ERIK as the hero? Props for unpredictability there. As well as Russell's untimely end: BANG. Goo. The end. Not the way I expected and I wish he could have been around longer, but decent nonetheless.

    Also, Alcide is a bit mean on drugs, yes? His dad the T-1000 makes for a great role model.

    Jason was such a goober in this ep, though he must be lightning quick with those guns if he's goo'ing that many vamps with how fast they can move. What I don't get/buy is how fast he switched back over to his Fellowship of the Sun mentality, suddenly hating all vamps. And what's up with the visions of his parents? Did we see anything that brought that on?

    Paraphrasing here, but I loved Pam's line, "Sweet fuck, all roads lead back to fucking Sookie..." And ok, I hate to say it. How much did Tara NOT suck this year? Maybe this is a way they're showing how different people are before/after vamp. Yeah, Jessica joining in would have been good.

    I do buy Erik as a good guy here, at least as much as I buy Bill's transformation to the dark side. Speaking of which, Bill's little speech at the end was a pretty good rationalization for why hes doing what he's doing. Erik, on the other hand, has always been about looking out for number one. Keeping what he cares about safe (i.e. his progeny, his sister, the human he kinda loves, not to mention being a prominent businessman and notoriously powerful and respected vampire) means that mainstreaming is solidly what he wants.

    That fairy birth shit was the funniest thing in the ep. "Speaking as a human mother, that is NOT how it goes for us," Arlene. "Bitch kinda makes ME want to do it," Lafayette. Poor Andy.

    For the first time in a lot of episodes I found myself laughing at the campy awesomeness. I really liked just the sheer level of bad, that made this good.

    Jason got a queen of the fairies head burst plus a large brain trauma, o we know that's one side story as I don't think the mom and dad visions are mom and dad, but more likely fairy dust. So, get ready for some more fairies folks. (and he's all rambo as, well the fairies want vamps dead)

    Not sure where Sam and Luna and pup went but they'll just show at home i imagine.

    The entire bar was lovely. For the one liners and complete ridiculous factor.

    I agree with all of the above. Something got into Jason with the Shinku-Haduken Kamehameha blast he received that sent him flying 30 feet into the air and into a tree. His parents were faery, maybe something got transfered to him or reactivated his memories somehow. Yeah, we know we're going to at least at 4 more faeries, now that Andy has 4 faery daughters. I hope by next season they are all 18 and hot, because children have no place in this show, since they grow fast and all.

    I put this message in the porn thread aswell.

    It seems that the redhead who plays 'Jessica' has done a nice anal video with exploitedcollegegirls.com

    I couldn't find a stream, but the file is only 350mb so it's not a big download.

    NSFW obviously

    Edit: After doing more research it's actually Melody Jordan, so not Jessica, but they look very similar.
