Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

I was happy to see during the opening credits that showrunner Alan Ball wrote this episode, his very last one as part of the show. It gave me hope that the episode would be a great season finale and a proper farewell to the man that brought this series to television and forever changed people’s thoughts on softcore vampire porn. Instead we got a cool episode, but nothing close to what a finale should do.

Finales are supposed to be the cap at the end of a collection of stories which provide a sense of closure and thematic resonance. True Blood has been too all over the place to have anything even close to resembling decent pacing or thematic cohesion, so instead a bunch of stuff just happened until all the bad guys were dead. Pretty much what happens in every season of this show. »
