True Blood Season 3 Finale...  
Well it was certainly better than last season's uber fail of a finale, but I still wasn't overly impressed...

I did LOVE LOVE LOVE that scene at the end when Eric (still looking ridiculously hot while covered in concrete, lol) FINALLY reveals the truth about BEEL Lying Liar that Lies Compton to Sookie (BOTH parts!), and then when Sookie uninvites Bill and we get to see him blowing around like a windsock from her door! :p ABOUT DAMN TIME! I'm finally convinced that Bill/Sookie is over with, and I'm so relieved about it...the nerve of Bill too, backstabbing Eric into the concrete trying to take him out, then trying to have Pam murdered?! Eric is one thing, but PAM? THAT IS NEVER OKAY BEEL! >:( And his ridiculous justifications to Sookie too for it...just ugh! (Eric was about to sacrifice his own life to take out the Russell threat, you really think he's going to go after Sookie?). Eric appearing right then out of nowhere saying, "Did you know..." was just GENIUS! :D

I love that Eric was SO done with Bill and his games and was just putting it all out there....I also love that he obviously didn't tell Sookie earlier because he didn't want to hurt her, but after Bill's stupid attempt to silence him, he had no choice. You could tell that he did regret hurting Sookie with the information, which I appreciated...Sookie may be mad at him as the messenger right now, but I think that she will get over it soon enough. She certainly seemed to care for Eric when she learned he was going to kill himself out in the sun (loved Pam's teary watching in that scene too), and when she heard what Bill had done. I'm also glad he didn't push it with her, but the way he came forward up close right before he left...unf! I love Eric's intensity...:) In short, the E/S-shipper in me (and B/S and BEEL hater) was VERY pleased and satisfied with this part of the epp, though I still can't believe what Bill did to Eric and Pam...FUUU BEEL!

The rest was so WTF though...From the super cheesy Jesus!Glowy!Godric (who didn't serve much of a purpose besides looking ridiculous) to Calvin getting shot (I guess they already made him so different from the books anyway, it doesn't matter if he dies now) and Jason inheriting 20 meth-heads to take care of, to Sam shooting his brother (god have they just totally ruined his character, FUUU writers! >:( ), to Tara overreacting ridiculously to Sam's revelation and then giving herself the worst haircut ever, to Lettie Mae's affair, to Sookie seeing the chandelier UFO and getting abducted by fairies at the end, to Bill vs. Sophie-Anne's battle royale (as much as I hate Bill, I think I hate Sophie-Anne more--I hate what they've done with her on the show--so I'd be thrilled if she died at the beginning of next season, or even better if they just killed each other! :p  Though I know that's not going to happen). And as much as I want to like Alcide/Sookie, since I like the actor here and A/S in the books, I just don't think they work well on the show here. Their one little scene was just awkward, and not in a good way...

On another more positive note Jessica/Hoyt were adorable as always (he proposed to her! <333 He wants to live with her! He stood up against his mother and everyone for her! <333), though I'm seriously worried about them now, between Maxine getting that gun and one of Summer's creepy dolls lying around J/H's new flat...O_o And I want to hug Terry forever, loved hearing about the armadillo again...:) The intervention scene with Hoyt was also pretty funny.

But in short, a pretty meh and lackluster finale aside from a few moments, without much major closure or many serious cliffhangers, though at least there were some pretty satisfying moments, and it was better than last season's finale...I'm not sure what to think of season 3 overall, I think on the whole I liked it better than season 2 (no horribly annoying Maryann storyline that bored me half the time), but IDK...I don't like the direction Sam is going in, for instance, among other things. Hopefully season 4 will be better.

It's good TB has now ended for the season, considering all my shows that are now starting up for the fall season!  Also, against my better judgment, I just joined audiopineapple's latest land comm, bbcland, since I've managed to already get myself hooked on 3 BBC shows with more to come.  We'll have to see how it goes...:p

(though NGL for a horrified second I thought she was running to his house at the end and I was going to rage so hard until it was clear this wasn't the case!).

I thought that, too! LOL I was like, "Oh, you are KIDDING me." LOL
