10 Hopes and Dreams for the Final Season of ‘True Blood’

Oh, True Blood. What happened to you? You used to be my favorite show, but then things got weird. And not in a good way, either. Even Alan Ball, producer and creator, bailed after the fifth season –not exactly a good sign. The show was definitely heading downhill before that, though. Sookie and Bill called it quits, Bill became an egomaniac, and I didn’t find season five’s rigorous religious theme all that interesting. Season six focused on the war between humans and vampires, while Bill struggled with his super vampire abilities. Even for True Blood, I found myself going, “WTF” way too many times. The writers were clearly struggling to make things work, and it showed. The sharp, bizarre, and sexy vampire show turned into a cheesy daytime television drama, which is why I’m guessing HBO is letting it meet its True Death.

From the looks of it, season seven looks like a crossbreed between The Walking Dead and The Vampire Diaries. The “sick” vampires who have been infected with whatever man-made virus we saw spreading last season have taken over Bon Temps and the US government wants nothing to do with this disaster. Yikes. You can watch the preview here:

But before all this goes down, these are my final wishes for a show I’ve followed for seven years. R.I.P., True Blood.

1. Please let Eric live for one more season!

The last time we saw Eric Northman, he was being scorched to death because he decided to use his new freedom to exist in daylight to catch up on some naked sunbathing R&R on top of an icy mountain. If this is how Eric dies, I don’t even think I’ll bother with the last season, to be honest.


2. I want Sookie and Bill to reconnect

I’m cool with Sookie finally finding contentment with being alone, but I can’t let go of early True Blood Sookie and Bill. They were SO CUTE and romantic together! I can understand why Sookie would never want to deal with Bill again, though. He tried to suck the life force out of her once, and then he turned into a demon-savior-vampire. Not exactly boyfriend material. Still, Billith, you have a special place in my heart.


3. No more Lilith nonsense

Like I said before, I though the whole biblical plot-line the last two seasons followed was stupid. I get that True Blood is not just a show about vampires, but is also a satire that comments on society and our downfalls, but the whole thing with Lilith’s blood and Bill becoming a born-again believer in the Book of Vampyr was just so far-fetched and campy, I could hardly watch. The only redeeming quality of season five was Russel Edgington’s return, because we all know he’s the best villain, ever.

4. We find out if Tara’s mom gave her the virus.

Remember in one of the last scenes in season six where Lettie Mae lets her daughter feed off her to make up for being such a terrible mom? I was cringing the entire time because I have a feeling that offering was not made with the best intentions. And if I’m right, let’s hope Tara gets her revenge.

    I just want the final season to be good. It’s been a struggle to watch each season but hey at least I can get some knitting done while I sort of pay attention to the episode I am watching. With that said I totally agree with your first point. Eric is too good to just die in the sun like that. Plus I am rooting for a 3-way between him Sookie, and Bill. Haven’t we waited long enough!

    My hopes for the final season ( sniffle, sob, ) are several:
    First and foremost, I want Bill to find contentment and satisfaction in his vampire life. I would be thrilled if he and Sookie could reunite and rekindle their love, which was magic. But if not with Sookie, then at least he should be the spokesman for vampires, championing mainstreaming, and leading the way to true equality for his kind. He should keep close to Jessica. She is a lovely daughter to him, and he needs her support and love.
    I want Sookie to realize she loves and trusts Bill, once they talk things over, and he honestly explains his previous actions, and apologizes for causing her hurt and disappointment. If she can’t forgive and forget enough to restart their relationship, then I hope she finds someone kind and caring to settle down in BT with, have children, and enjoy her friends and family. (No, not Alcide.)
    I hope Tara and Willa remain friends. They are very well matched. I think Tara should find a young vampire girl who she can make a life with. Pam is never going to love her enough.
    I hope Jessica finds true love with Luke, and somehow makes amends to Andy and Adilyn, perhaps by saving them from hepV vampires. I hope she stays close to her maker, Bill. they have a lovely father/daughter relationship.
    I hope Jason ends his relationship with Violet, finds a nice human girl, settles down and has lots of kids.
    I hope Alcide goes back to his dad’s place, settles down on the adjacent property, and leads a quiet life as a lone wolf.
    I hope Eric and Pam continue to grow their Fangtasia business, franchising, and opening several new locations in the south.
    I hope Sam continues as mayor of BT, marries Nicole, and she has a boy, who Sam will bring up with all the love he never got from his parents.

    I have many hopes and wishes for S7 of TrueBlood. My most fervent is that Bill, Sookie, Jessica, Tara, Jason, Sam, Willa, Pam, Eric, Arlene, and Andy live through it!
