True Blood – Season 6, Episode 9: “Life Matters”

This episode neatly wrapped up most of the major story lines of the season.  The only one left hanging is Warlow and I suspect that’s what most of the season finale will be.

True Blood: Life Matters

Did Eric kill all of those guards by himself?  He drank most of Warlow’s blood which would have made him impervious to the sun but it wouldn’t have made him unkillable like Bill.  Where did he go?  We all know Eric’s not gone for good.  No way the show would get rid of Alexander Skarsgard, he’s the biggest draw for females.  I suspect he’ll go off to get his shit together.  He has a new progeny and I don’t think he’s the type of maker to leave Willa to fend for herself.

I’ve seen a few reviewers who didn’t understand why Bill put Overlark out of his misery.  I get it.  He would have liked to have punished the good doctor himself, but Eric beat him to it.  He still felt the need to inflict violence on him so the did the next best thing by smashing his face in.  While I’m on the subject of Bill, what effect will drinking his blood have on the other vampires?  It was a mixture of Lilith and Warlow’s blood, will they have Bill’s special powers now?  Since Bill was nearly drained dry and re-fed his own blood, will he still have his powers?  Also, did anyone else think there were way more vampires dancing around in the sun than were in the white room to start with?

Random stuff:  Jason should have killed Sarah.  That’s going to come back to bite him in the ass.  I’m kind of pissed they killed Steve.  He was an ass but he was a funny ass.

Finally, Terry’s funeral.  I also read that some people thought his funeral was too long.  Not me, I loved it.  I loved seeing how everyone met Terry.  He was one of the few humans left and his normal death deserved to be treated with respect.  But, when did Caroline Bellefleur become such an obnoxious, racist bitch?  She’s a genteel Southern Lady and would never act in public the way she did at Terry’s funeral.
