- True Blood Season 7 Spoiler Guide (307,894 views) – Although technically a page, not a post, our spoiler guides have proven to be quite popular with fans looking for news, information and spoilers about True Blood.

- Throwback Thursday: Sex and Blood, Oh My (25,185 views) – As part of our Throwback Thursday series, Lisa reposted the infamous Rolling Stone cover featuring Alexander Skarsgard, Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer, nude and “blood”-spattered, from 2010. Even after 4 years, it caused a stir.
- Meet Eric’s New Love Interest (15,401 views) – Late in 2013, we posted a spoiler that producers were casting a new love interest for Eric named Sylvie. Fans were not amused. This post introducing Gabriella Wright as Sylvie was met with some disapproval, but also served as reassurance that Eric wasn’t dead. (Remember the “Eric is dead” hysteria of post-season 6? Seems quaint now, doesn’t it?)
