SPOILERS: True Blood Season Finale Spoiler Extravaganza!

By  |  70 Comments

The True Blood season 3 finale airs September 12 on HBO, and we’ve got questions. LOTS of questions. To help us while away the time until the finale airs (remember, no new episode September 5 due to the Labor Day holiday), let’s see what clues we have about the finale so far.


First, here’s the preview for “Evil Is Going On” from HBO:

Next, let’s look at some photos from the set of the season finale. These were taken back in June and show Alexander Skarsgard, Anna Paquin’s stunt double, Stephen Moyer, Denis O’Hare and Alan Hyde (click for larger versions).

Burning Up At Fangtasia

The photos above are all from the Fangtasia set (aka Alex’s Bar in Long Beach, CA) and are part of the scenes involving Eric and Russell out in the sun. The presence of Anna’s stunt double suggests that Sookie will be involved in a fight scene at some point. Skarsgard’s stunt double was also on set (not pictured), and those tubes strapped to his back and arms, used for the prop blood, sure make it look like Eric is going to be very bloody before the end of the episode.

We also see Alan Hyde on the set, dressed as Godric was in his final days (nights?) before he met the sun. The synopsis for the finale says that “Eric grapples with his conscience while plotting his perfect revenge against Russell”, which suggests that Godric appears as Eric’s conscience, likely giving him words of forgiveness and mercy toward Russell.

In the preview, we hear Sophie-Anne say that Russell “is no more” and Bill follows with “Eric as well”, seeming to confirm their final deaths, although Russell says he refuses to surrender to the true death.

Is Russell Defeated?

While Denis O’Hare reported that Russell “weeps tears of joy” during the finale, we’re guessing we already saw that when he stepped out into the sun for the first time in nearly 3,000 years at the end of last week’s episode. However, he also said that Eric, Sookie and even Pam are “really mean” to him. Eric tricking him out into the sunlight is certainly mean, but does Sookie’s backtalk in episode 3.11 count as “really mean”? Has Pam been “really mean” yet? Kristin Bauer von Straten said that Pam “kicks some butt” in the finale and would do anything to save her Maker (Eric). She also revealed that the vampire world experiences a “major shift”, which certainly seems to point toward Russell’s defeat.

Anna Paquin in the True Blood season finaleSookie’s Fae Blood

The promise of Sookie’s blood lured Russell to what could be his final death, but the preview above also reveals that Sophie-Anne is in search of fae blood. Was that Bill’s ultimate goal in getting close to Sookie? Does he betray her to the Queen? He seems to be reporting to her about the deaths of Eric and Russell. The fallout from him agreeing to Eric’s plan, without letting Sookie in on it, is going to be hard to watch.

Will Bill & Sookie Stay Together?

Per the official synopsis, fed up with being “vampire crack,” Sookie considers a new life without Bill – or any other vampire. Skarsgard said “she can’t stay with Bill forever“, citing that the series is based on a set of books where Bill & Sookie don’t stay together. However he hedged about whether they’ll split up soon.

Where Is Alcide?

Joe Manganiello is confirmed as a series regular in season 4, but where has he been for the last couple of episodes? We should find out in the finale because Joe confirmed that Alcide will be back to “take care of some unfinished business.” (We get a glimpse of him in the preview above.) Is he also after Russell? Or could he be contending for Sookie’s affections?

What IS Lafayette?

Are we finally going to get some answers about Lafayette’s possible powers? And what about that rumor that Jesus is more than he appears? The season finale synopsis suggests developments: “Plagued by visions, Lafayette turns to Jesus for help, and learns his boyfriend has more to offer than companionship.” Nelsan Ellis elucidated a little further, saying that we’ll find out why Jesus and Lafayette are so “spiritually connected.” So the visions continue, and Jesus might have the answer for how to either stop them or use them.

Sam Keeps Going Down That Dark Path

Sam & Lafayette in the True Blood season finale“Someone in my camp is in big trouble,” Sam Trammell reported. Whether it’s at Sam’s hands or it’s someone he has to rescue is unknown, but after Tommy broke into Sam’s safe last week, we’re guessing little brother is the one with a target on his back. The darkness we’ve seen with Sam recently continues far into season 4, according to reports, including something “very serious, very hardcore” that happens to take Sam’s story to a whole new level. The official synopsis says that Tara discovers something about Sam when his rage resurfaces after Tommy’s latest transgression; did she already know he’s a shifter? Perhaps his rage causes him to lose control and shift in front of her. But what about those glimpses of Sam in the preview, firing a gun (looks like another flashback based on the hair) and saying that someone is a dead man while his hands are covered in blood? At the very least, we know that Sam’s storyline ends in a cliffhanger.

Jason Gets Closer to Crystal

Jason will become even more involved with Crystal and the goings on at Hotshot, bless his well-meaning heart. He warns her family about the impending drug raid, which leads to him finding “a new calling”. Has Jason given up on law enforcement? Or do things go horribly awry, helping him realize that working within the law is safer for everyone?

Jason will also have to deal with Kitch, that cocky high school kid who informed Jason last week that most of the Who’s Who at Bon Temps High are hooked on V. Looks like Kitch will be joining the road crew, and perhaps Jason will be back as his boss?

Hoyt Tries To Plan A Future With Jessica

Despite Maxine’s attempts to get him to marry Summer, Hoyt is determined to be with Jessica. But is it true love or that taste of her blood that has him captivated?

What About Arlene’s Baby?

Now here’s a storyline we can’t figure out. Carrie Preston promised that we’ll see a resolution to the pregnancy storyline in the finale, but “it’s also going to be open-ended.” On top of that, in the preview for the finale, we see Rene behind Arlene, wrapping his fingers around her neck. Another dream? Or, as it appears in the preview, one of Lafayette’s visions? Could Lala be the one who helps Arlene come to a resolution regarding the baby?

Who Survives?

All of the following have been confirmed for season 4: Sookie, Eric, Bill, Sam, Tara, Jason, Lafayette, Pam, Alcide, Terry, Arlene, Jessica, Jesus, Tommy, Holly, Crystal, Claudine, and Russell.

So does anyone die in the finale? We’re sure there will be some blood, but perhaps the most shocking thing will be the lack of deaths this time around.

The True Blood season finale, “Evil Is Going On”, airs Sunday, September 12 at 9/8c on HBO.

    I didn’t realize Lafayette was suppose to be something other than Lafayette. Interesting.

      Lafayette is a witch, and so is Jesus. Its not exactly rocket science. The 10 min v-trip they took basically couldnt be more clear if they slapped you in the face and said “they are both witches”

        Remember when Lala’s mamma was on his porch and told him she was there to protect him from the dogs and cats ( were wolves and panthers ) and the vampires and witches… she TOTALLY knew what LaLa was.

    Since its only months ( in True Blood time) , does the Arlene’s Baby story line have any purpose as we might never see the baby be born if the pregnancy does continue! I am wondering to what this is all about really , seeing Rene in the final season promo I am more confused than ever!

    Note , I cannot see the final Promo video from HBO here . Is it available to non-american viewers of this site?

    What about Hoyt ? Will he be coming back next season ?

    • Solomon K

      September 2, 2010 at 5:52 pm

      I’m pretty sure he will be, I think the list is only for the main characters. Hoyt shows up in IMDB as being in all 12 episodes next season.

      • Kat.

        September 12, 2010 at 4:09 pm

        Hoyt may not be a main character…but Tommy & Crystal are up there on the list. I understand why Crystal would be there based on the books….
        Wasn’t Maxine holding a gun in a preview? I wonder if something goes wrong…eesh. Oh, well. Only a few hours to go & we’ll know [unless we’re left hanging ’til next season].
        xoxo – Kat.

    I think Hoyt really does love Jessica. He did before she gave him her blood and I think that the blood is just intensifying those feelings not creating them.

    From the plot synopsis they have out I think when he tells his mom that he wants to be with her (You can see him talking to Maxine in the preview video and it’s part of the plot synopsis) his mom gets pissed because she can’t control him and believes Jessica to be evil and trying to take her son away from her (when he’s finally trying to have his own life) and that’s why she buys the gun (also in the preview video.) He also is showing Jessica a house in the preview video and I think they are going to have two important things happen in the finale.

    • Solomon K

      September 2, 2010 at 5:38 pm

      Firstly, When he’s showing Jessica the house I think he’s going to tell her he wants her to move in with him. (This would be important and plausible because if they are still loosely following the books, Bill is supposed to leave Bon Temp again at some point and that would give Jessica a place to stay, assuming Bill won’t let her use his house.) Also, that seems to be the next logical step in their relationship, since he let her bite him.

      I would like to post my second theory about the finale, but there’s something about this sites wordpress that keeps blocking it. Not sure why. Sorry I can’t finish my thought.

      • Mel

        September 2, 2010 at 8:41 pm

        You posted 4 times on this topic, so it appears to be working just fine.

        • Solomon K

          September 3, 2010 at 12:04 am

          It does usually, but something about my second theory on this subject kept getting blocked so I just gave up on trying to post it. The only reason I posted these two pieces separately was because I was trying to figure out why it wouldn’t post, and at first I thought it was that the comment was too long, but it appears that wasn’t it. lol

          But this is technically off topic so (which is against policy) so I apologize for bringing it up here. Sorry.

    I think it´s Cludine who says “Russell is no more” I hear the english accent, and the tone of voice…I´m I wrong?

    • Colypso

      September 3, 2010 at 3:26 pm

      i believe its queen sophie-anne

      • ShaZ

        September 5, 2010 at 1:39 am

        Actually it sounded like Pam to me.

  8. Amerilstones

    September 3, 2010 at 9:13 am

    The queen is not among the confirmed one´s in season 4 .. Maybe Bill was saying ” Eric , no more ” to Sookie ? And the queen somehow end up killed by Russell as a favor or deal to Sookie for saving he´s life out in the sun after caused him alot pain ? Eric could also kill the queen if the want to . I´m happy that Russel will survive and i´m very excited to see that AB twist . Love that Lafayette and Jessica will be keept in the show , they are so great character´s .

    • Amerilstones

      September 3, 2010 at 9:38 am

      I ment Bill was saying ” Eric as well ” ..

  9. vett135

    September 3, 2010 at 10:02 am

    I think he (Bill) is saying “Eric is well”

    • Sarah P

      September 3, 2010 at 2:03 pm

      I think your right it is “Eric is well”. Its so hard to tell at first but I went back to see and can hear Bill say it , I think to Sophia-anne before he attacks her ( well that is how I see it from the promo clip)

    • Amerilstones

      September 3, 2010 at 2:38 pm

      I think it´s both .. It sound´s like he´s talking in vampier speed .

      • Colypso

        September 3, 2010 at 3:27 pm

        sounds to me like like the queen says russell is no more, and bill says “eric as well”, who knows, driving me crazy tho!!!

        • Ashley

          September 9, 2010 at 10:07 pm

          Im 99% sure Bill says “Eric as well”

          • Sarge

            September 10, 2010 at 12:24 pm

            since the promo appeared I hear “Eric IS well” it was you guys who made me think haha it is possible that he says to Sookie that Eric as well (is dead) but I think it is more possible that he is saying the sheriff is well to Queen, then she says she was looking for a true fae then Bill goes all teritorial about Sookie, then Sookie came to knowlege of his true motives and rescint his invitation then I’m dancing in front of the tv xD LOL oh and Sookie ends up with Eric TA DAAAAAA xD

  10. Sarah P

    September 3, 2010 at 2:15 pm

    Do I see Tara with a blade while looking at her bathroom mirror ?! I hope she does not do something like try to kill herself ! I know she has suffered so much in such a short period but will hate to see this as her way to kill her pain! Or is she simply completing killing Andy Bellefleur!

    Maybe I am wrong on both assumption of a three second clip.

    • Mla

      September 8, 2010 at 6:11 pm

      I think those are scissors that Tara is holding in her hands. I think she’s going to cut her braids off.

      • Tara

    September 3, 2010 at 7:42 pm

    Please….. please… please…. bring Franklin Mott back. He was the best thing that drew me in as a first time True Blood watcher. He was crazy hilarious and that accent of his made him even more super sexy. I really want to see him back with Tara since they are now connected to each other and their story line became more intereting than that of Bill and Sookie…. Wow!

    • La Verne

      September 6, 2010 at 8:04 pm

      Yes, why not bring back the person who tortured and raped the girl to make her his. That sounds real good. I liked Franklin too, but would I want to see him back? NO! He made Tara’s life hell. Would you want to be with someone like that? I don’t think so.

      • Ashton

        September 6, 2010 at 10:57 pm

        Somehow I doubt that Franklin could come back, except as the figment of someone’s imagination. Even vampires don’t heal from being shot by wooden bullets.

    I wouldn’t put too much stock into what the preview audio says. They’ve most likely cut the clips up to make people curious. Although it’s obvious that QSA is dressed in black to mourn her “husband”, or celebrate. With the news of Russell returning next season, I am interested to see what happens. Hopefully more time is given to the main plot. That has been my biggest complaint this season. I wish this show was given 15-20 minutes more per episode, or perhaps bump the number of episodes to 15 episodes per season.

    • jjlee53

      September 7, 2010 at 9:46 pm

      i agree…this season seems to have gone by pretty quick. I didnt care for how quickly the action came and went. this season seemed to quiet down a bit and introduce more of the political side of the vampire world. It was a good season though, sad it is over. Sunday is just about the only day i have looked forward to cause of this show…what am i gunna do with mysef??!!

  13. StaceyJ

    September 4, 2010 at 2:14 am

    I wonder what will happen to Russell and Eric? I also can’t wait tos ee what comes of Sam and Tara! I luve them together.

  14. Amerilstones

    September 4, 2010 at 5:30 am

    Hmm .. Claudine is not among the comfirmed one´s . From the moment she aper in book she have a part / mentioned in every book and die´s in book 9 . If you count the time´s she have help Sookie in the show, i think it´s just as many time´s in the book´s . I still think she will be in s 4 , she must be a link to her cousin Cloued who have a big rolle in the ” fairy ” war .

    I didn’t know where to post this so I’ll ask here – what happened to Bud??

      After finding the trucker (that Jessica drained) in a ditch Bud called it quits in Bon Temps putting Andy in charge.

    September 5, 2010 at 10:54 pm

    I’m thinking (more like hoping!) the season finale will give us a headstart on dead to the world where eric has amnesia and lives at sookie’s house for a while. wahahahaha that would be superrrrr

    • AmandaD

      September 6, 2010 at 4:06 pm

      I love Dead to the World!!! I hope so too… It made me fall in love with Eric

        September 9, 2010 at 2:52 pm

        I so love Eric and would love to see that part of Dead to the World happen. Sookie doesn’t belong with Bill…………..the books say so. lol

    I love TB but I can’t help but see a basic problem with the story line. At the beginning when Eric told his story to the Authority I could see why they wanted nothing to do with the execution of Russel…let Eric do it without any resources. However, once Russell went public I can’t understand why the Authority wasn’t all over the television telling people that they would head the search…You know..it would have put them in a good light rather than looking to the public like they couldn’t care less. Am I missing something?

    • Amerilstones

      September 7, 2010 at 9:47 am

      I think it´s two reasun´s .. 1 I think they wanted to keep the info they got from Eric hidden .. Eric never told Russell he was given a order to kill him . So i think that´s why they act like ” nothing ” . 2 They are vampier´s and in the vampier world they are the superiure comperd to human´s xd , i don´t think they would go so low . Even if it would put them in a good light , like you said .
      Cant wait for the finale episode .. maybe we will have a better understanding why they act like they did ! . Now when we know Russell will be alive i wonder what will happend to Eric ..

    Spoiler alert!! My good sources told me to don’t worry folks Eric lives and it seems like bill and eric bury russell in cement either dead or alive. Plus sookie learns the whole truth about bill. Yah!!!!

  19. karin dicker

    September 8, 2010 at 2:00 am

    in the clip bill says “eric is well”. russell isn’t going to be back until late in season 4. i think hallow or a witch that can communicate with the dead probably brings him up. otherwise we would have eric chasing sookie and eric for the rest of their lives. this will be an interesting sunday. surprises!

  20. karin dicker

    September 8, 2010 at 2:01 am

    I meant Russell chasing Eric and Sookie forever in post above this one.

  21. Donna

    September 8, 2010 at 3:13 am

    The tubes on Eric are for the smoke, not blood. As in episode 311, when they’re out in the sun, they start to burn slowly and smoke comes up is collar. He then prays Russel can’t see this untill he’s outside.

    • Mel

      September 8, 2010 at 10:56 am

      Duh! You’re right, Donna. I wish I’d seen your comment before recording this week’s podcast. 🙂

  22. mixxie

    September 8, 2010 at 8:07 am

    I just want next season. Will it start in June like the others? Hopefully it will at least stay within certain perameters of the book…that way we get some sweet Eric. I think it will be very interesting to see Alex play that role. I know in the scenes in previous episodes where his face was put on Andy’s body and Tara’s mom’s body, he did a fantastic job…and I lol’d.

    My predictions is that after Russell gets to a certain point of immolation…Bill or Pam will step in and capture him…put him in silver…and make everyone, including the authority, think he’s dead. Then? Who knows.



    September 8, 2010 at 12:59 pm

    I reckon Russel will die.
    Queen sophie anne is in mourning although I’ve heard in the books Hadley ends up dying so she may have been killed. She’s either pretending to mourn for Russel or Really in mourning for Hadley.
    Jason & Crystal’s story annoy me. Crystal is so flaky. Is she like that in the books? She seems to have no idea what she wants.
    My theory with Arlene is that she probably will have the baby & Jessica may end up delivering it for her. What better plot than that to finally make Arlene appreciate vampires & overcome her hatred of Jessica.
    Maxine will attempt to kill Jessica but I think that scene will be funny just watching Maxine fail horribly.
    As for any story lines involving Sam, Lafayette or Tommy I have no Idea.

    • Sara

      September 9, 2010 at 2:57 pm

      Hadley doesn’t die until later on in the books, but they like to mix and shake things up on the show. So who knows. I think Sophie-Anne is suppose to be mourning Russell (her fake husband). I can’t wait until Sunday night!!


    September 8, 2010 at 1:08 pm

    Also, Russels Older he’ll burn quicker.
    I’ve noticed no ones mentioned the Hadely theory but me.
    Wonder if they’ll make Tara a vampire in season 4.
    Who’s behind sookie in the teaser picture in the grave yard? The blonde?
    Sookies probably visiting Grans grave. Bills isnt that neat or new & I can’t think of anyone else she’d visit. Oh Maybe Hadley if she’s dead. Egg’s hasn’t even got a headstone yet so not him either. Im rambling now. I’ll pop by again if I have more. (I need to sleep it’s 3.30am)

    • Mla

      September 8, 2010 at 6:17 pm

      I think that’s Gran’s grave Sookie is visiting. Probably looking for comfort after the ordeal she’s been through. Regarding Tara; AB said she will turn dark after what she’s been through. I don’t think he’ll ever make her a vampire, but I do think she’ll be heavily involved in the witch plot next season along with Lafyette. I see her getting fascinated with it considering her and Lafayettes family history.

  25. mixie

    September 8, 2010 at 2:09 pm

    I agree with the Hadley theory. I also agree that Russell should burn a lot faster…I mean we saw how fast Godric went up in flames in Season 2.

    I think that Arlene will have the baby…and the Jessica theory sounds so good lol

    I want to say that I think Sam is going to kill his little brother?……..or maybe he kills an animal he thinks is his little brother? I dunno. That story has felt like a filler all season anyways….So has Crystal/Jason. However, season 4 will go more into detail with them i think.

    As for the blonde, I think it’s just another random Faery.

    • Tammy

      September 8, 2010 at 3:07 pm

      Here is a thought. Not saying I am right, just playing the guessing game like everyone else. Godrick did burn really fast. Lets do math. Eric went out first. He is 1000 years younger then Russell. He started smoking before Russell came out because he was hoping Russell didnt see the smoke. And when Eric turned around he was already melting?. If ya go back and watch Godrick saw the sun during film reel 2877265 he was gone 100% by 3073654. If ya look at how much longer Eric was outside then Russell is it enough to make up the 1000 years apart? If ya go per second then Eric and Russell should die at the same time. However this is HBO and they do their own math. Our other Theory is that Russell dies first and then is no longer cuffed to Eric because he is mush and Sookie drags him in and they lie about him dying in Bills comment Eric as well. On another flip side the guy who plays Eric has a movie coming out and one in pre production and then he has battleship with MTV He might be moving on. The books are now so far removed from the Show ya cant go by them.

      • Mel

        September 8, 2010 at 3:22 pm

        As noted above, Skarsgard is confirmed for season 4. Also, Russell is about 2800 years old, whereas Eric is 1000, so Russell is nearly 2000 years older than Eric.


      September 9, 2010 at 10:44 am

      I don’t think sam kills anyone. I noticed in one of the teaser previews Lafayettes in the same room with sam & his bloody hands. I think it’s another strange vision that lafayettes been seeing since the V trip. Only a Few more Days now!

  26. Meg

    September 8, 2010 at 3:18 pm

    Am I the only one who wishes the Alcide/Eric showdown for Sookie’s affections would come in the season finale? Ever since I read from the actor that plays Alcide that they cast someone tall or taller than Alexander for a reason, I’ve wanted these two to throw down…but we’ll probably be seeing a lot of that next season, seeing as werewolves have no love lost for vampires anyway, and Alcide has plenty of reason to hate Eric for chomping on Sookie 😛

    I think that if Sookie and Bill break up, it won’t be for her to run off to Eric…if anyone it would be Alcide (which I really hope doesn’t happen) but I doubt it a bit.

    In the scene in Fangtasia in the last episode Sookie says she hates Eric and Bill, so I don’t see her running to Eric. I think Bill just needs to pull his line, like at the end of Season 2 when him and Sam had a plan “If only you could have heard my thoughts” and she may be ok with it, especially if Bill explains what the Plan was about. I honestly believe Bill had just found out what Sookie was when he told her, so I think the whole ‘Mission to Bon Temps’ Bill was sent on by the Queen won’t come through in the Show. I don’t think it fits either… In the books, from the beginning, Sookie and Bill have more fights, and she is far more aware of his darker ‘Vampire’ side….or at least it came across to me that way from his character, and since it is written in the first person I think that was the idea. Bill is far more selfish in the books…he is far more Vampire.

    Also, on the HBO site, they just uploaded 3 preview clips of the finale. The only one that really gives anything crucial away is the clip of Sookie running through the forrest/cemetery off in Fae land in some sort of a dream/vision. Everything is dark…but then she reaches this massive chandelier that is light…lots of light. The light grows stronger, and she wakes up, with Bill right in front of her. Thats obviously a sign that Bill isn’t that bad, considering last time he was around it was all dark. It also looks like this takes place around the same time Bill is leaping towards the camera (from the official episode preview) as the clothes and scenery are the same.

    Hopefully this means its near the end, and him and Sookie are ok

      Well, in the books Sookie ends up with Eric for more than one reason…but it started with him losing his memory in the fourth book. She saw a softer side of him, because he had no idea who he was or what he was.

    The long wait before the finale has spurred my imagination. It’s telling me that Eric will be saved by Sookie. Russell will perish, but, will be brought back next season in flashback scenes. Sophie Anne will want vengeance against Eric and will connive with the witches who will cast the amnesia spell on Eric. Conflict, insurmountable odds, twist and turns- bring it on! As long as true love conquers (Eric and Sookie), I’ll wait patiently with bated breath. After all, love won through battle is more satisfying than love from surrender.

    I was thinking about the Fae storyline. Fairies are not as kind and lovable as Tinkerbell. I do remember Tinkerbell not being nice to anyone who had feelings for Peter Pans. I think AB’s Fae will be more like the friaries from the horror movies like the Tooth Fairy . They appear to be beautiful but are down right nasty aka Claude.

    Eric will survive saved by Bill (he is seen burnt on the final shoot photo) and maybe with help from Pam, Alcide and or Sookie. Evil lives on- Arlene’s baby? QSA will die! she will want to possess Sookie and bill will fight to protect her ( preview scene) though he will need help from somewhere to kill her( he’s too young) Maybe Alcide or Eric.

      Alcide cant help kill QSA, he wouldnt stand a chance against her she’s hundreds of years old. And i thinkg that burnt photo your talking about is either RE or Eric.

    I was able to watch two days of filming of the finale at Alex’s bar. So I have to correct the info accompanying the photo of Alex with tubes attached to his back. They were not used for spurting blood, but actually are tubes attached to a smoke machine so that, with Alex wearing his leather jacket, it gives the appearance of smoke rising from his body as he is being burned by the sun.

    I would like more stuff with the fairies. Claudine was so much more involved. Hadley and her telepathic son are interestingbut story but not pursued. They are making Hadley into a bit of a different character than in the books. Hadley was more of a goth chic. And of course, ended up vampire. But it was because of Hadley’s death and how Sookie met Octacvia and had her own firing power against withces and what not. I wonder if they will introduce Octavia along with Hallow next season. There were four main story plots that follow Russel’s wedding. There was Jason and Crystal and the baby or pregnancy thing. There was the Harveaux wolf pack fighting for a new leader and then Sookie runs into Quinn again. There was Eric losing his memory due to the withces and then there was witch show down. So, season finale, Sookie hates Eric and Bill. Beginning of Season 4, will have Eric losing his memory and Sookie seeing the other side of Eric. So it will be a big turnaround from the Season 3 finale and Sookie’s feelings for Eric. Holly is already in the show, so I know Hallow has got to show up and Sookie will get more involved with the wolf pack leader pull. Eric will get his memory back, Sookie will hate Eric again, and then start dating Quinn. They will leave the Jason/Crystal plot open to exploit the shifter and were plots. And I don’t know what the heck is going on with Lala, Jesus and Tara. Tara was always so much better off in the books. I think they are working on Lala and Jesus storyline because I think it will be impacting for the witch showdown.Oh lord! When will season 4 start. I hate cliffhangers, and I know there will be a big one tomorrow night!!!
