True Blood Fans, You Can’t Save (Spoiler), But You Can Save The Elephants!

Attention, True Blood fans. Once you’re done rioting in the streets (blogs) over last night’s season finale, we have a suggestion for how you can channel all that energy into something positive: saving real-life elephants instead of fictional hot vampires. Last week, during our Very VH1 Spreecast with Kristin Bauer Van Straten (Pam), she showed off a portrait she painted of her vampire “daddy,” Eric.

True Blood WTF: Who Died? And What Died On Alcide’s Head?

alcide

I don’t know if I’m ready to talk about what just happened on the season finale of True Blood. I do know that I don’t necessarily believe that what happened is what it appears to be. Sookie herself said, “It’s not what you think.” Anyway, take this moment to marvel at Joe Manganiello’s terrible wig (which thankfully gave way to a foxy haircut later on), and try out his new nickname — Bright Eyes! — before we delve into the more serious ish of the episode.

True Blood’s Kristin Bauer Van Straten Describes “Really Emotional” Pam And Eric Scene

Throughout season 6 of True Blood, there’s been speculation about a huge death happening. Were the rumors just referring to Terry, Nora or Steve, or is someone even closer to our hearts about to bite it? What we do know is that the scene at the end of the season’s penultimate episode — in which Pam tells Eric, “Don’t you dare leave me,” and he cocks his head and rockets away — nearly killed us. In yesterday’s Very VH1 Spreecast with Kristin Bauer Van Straten, she told us that she basically felt the same way.

True Blood WTF: 5 Terrifyingly Beautiful Eric Moments From “Life Matters”

eric1

After last week’s crazy awful stiletto murder, I was pretty worried that season 6 of True Blood would go out with a surreal whimper. But they managed to bring the show out of the blood-soaked mire with an episode that juxtaposed spectacular violence with real pathos, featuring a revival of the Eric-Bill Hero Team and a nice helping of Bon Temps folksiness at Terry’s funeral. This is what can happen when you narrow things down to just two stories! I’d rather not do a bunch of screenshots of severed body parts, so today’s WTF moments are all about Eric and the impressive array of emotions Alexander Skarsgard displayed in his scenes:

True Blood WTF: As Subtle As A Stiletto To The Head

sarah

We’re on the home stretch of Season 6, so naturally, True Blood’s writers are focusing in on the action and not wasting screen time on things like details of funeral arrangements and what Arlene needs to eat for breakfast. Oh, wait. In the interest of plot development, “Dead Meat” did have a surreally bad chase sequence — Ms. Suzuki R.I.P. — and a soapy pregnancy surprise. Let’s get to the WTF-ery of it all…

True Blood WTF: Eric Crying Is The Worst Crying

Alexander Skarsgard

Just so you know it was Comic-Con-related illness, not mourning over Terry Bellefleur, that had me skipping this True Blood list last week. I’m also blaming my fever for the tears I shed over poor Terry. I’m fully onboard with the show’s plan to trim the storyline fat, but is assassination the only answer? How about just fading gracefully into the background from whence they came? Anyway, I almost made every single WTF moment from this episode another image of Eric crying, but I restrained myself. Here are the top five:

Happy 31st Birthday, Anna Paquin! Track Her Style Evolution From Child Star To True Blood Mama

Anna Paquin Style Evolution

While the rest of us were jamming carrot sticks up our nose and arguing about which Power Ranger was the coolest (Red, obvs), 11 year-oldĀ Anna Paquin was winning Oscars. And now 20 years later, she’s getting naked with her super hot vampire husband/co-starĀ Stephen Moyer on True Blood. So yeah, it’s safe to say that Anna Paquin is doing it very right, and has been for quite some time.

True Blood‘s Rutina Wesley Says Death Camp Storyline Is ‘Important’

A couple of days before the True Blood Comic-Con panel, where we were treated to the above confusing end-of-season trailer, VH1 spoke to the very lovely, un-Tara-like Rutina Wesley. She revealed what she could about that big death everyone’s been talking about, plus what it’s like to be a dark-skinned black actress in the middle of a storyline that looks a lot like genocide.
