    The potential definitely is there for a bloody good finale. The setup is intriguing enough.

    There are still too many characters to keep track of, and their numbers are only growing.... [But] There's a clever twist involving Eric that could set up an exciting arc for Sookie.

    Headaches will be induced just in trying to unravel the plot mess Bon Temps finds itself in. At least this will be the last headache.

    For the most part, cable series haven’t been as guilty as their network brethren of overstaying an invitation, but this is one hit show that probably should have breathed its last a couple of years ago.

    I was skeptical when the new show runner Brian Buckner said that this final season would return back to how it was when it first started butI was skeptical when the new show runner Brian Buckner said that this final season would return back to how it was when it first started but after seeing the premiere all of the skepticism was gone. This feels exactly like season 1 and 2. There are some things that they can't go back to but for the most part it's almost exactly like the earlier seasons. I'm so excited to see how the rest of this season plays out. Full Review »

The amount of melodrama,This show has become so bad that I would be very very surprised if it got renewed for another season after this. The amount of melodrama, pointless nonexistent plot, and a strange combination of over and under acting from several of the cast portray a show that is running on fumes and has nowhere else to go.
