TRUE BLOOD Season 2 Finale Title Explained


We previously posted a preview of the season 2 finale of True Blood titled "Beyond Here Lies Nothin" (Season 2 Episode 12) airing in less than two weeks Sunday September 13.


What we didn't know at the time was that the title of the episode was actually the title of a song "Beyond Here Lies Nothin'" By Bob Dylan and it turns out that the song was even used in the promo for season 2.


Now maybe I am reading too much into this, but it seems really coincidental that the song with the same name as the title of the season 2 finale would ALSO be in a promo for season 2.


My curiosity pushed me into looking into this some more and I went ahead and read the lyrics of "Beyond Here Lies Nothin'" and I think that I have cracked the code.


I believe that this song was chosen because the lyrics apply to Sookie and I believe that it is Bill saying these words to her. Now, I realize I am biased here since I really like the Bill-Sookie relationship and do not see the Eric-Sookie thing happening. But I think that I am right on this.


I suggest, you read the lyrics to "Beyond Here Lies Nothin'" yourself and you be the judge. Do you see what I see?


I love you pretty baby

You're the only love I've ever known

Just as long as you stay with me

The whole world is my throne

Beyond here lies nothin'

Nothin' we can call our own


I'm movin' after midnight

Down boulevards of broken cars

Don't know what I'd do without it

Without this love that we call ours

Beyond here lies nothin'

Nothin' but the moon and stars


Down every street there's a window

And every window made of glass

We'll keep on lovin' pretty baby

For as long as love will last

Beyond here lies nothin'

But the mountains of the past


My ship is in the harbor

And the sails are spread

Listen to me pretty baby

Lay your hand upon my head

Beyond here lies nothin'

Nothin' done and nothin' said

I guess it could mean that but I think it just means the loss of someone that Sookie loves in the finale. They lyrics could really apply to just about anyone Sookie knows. The three individuals with the highest priority are Bill, Sam, and Eric in that order.
It could also mean Mary-Ann singing it to Tara or Eggs. Or Tara singing it to Mary-Ann and Eggs or just Eggs. At this point IT IS too hard to tell it could be just about anyone.
BUT BELIEVE ME by the end of the episode on September 13, 2009 you will know EXACTLY who their reference to the Bob Dylan song was.
So let it be written, so let it be done.....
Thetravellerjohn21, out..

or maybe... because many of the episodes have been names after the song that plays during the credits... that's the case this time too... and they used it in the promo because it works. In other words, I think you're reading wayyy too much into a song and an episode title.

Hmm, that's interesting...so you think this season may have been the Bill & Sookie swan song...the words could indicate that, or as traveller said, several other relationships in the show, or maybe they just thought it was a cool song choice, as frostedcupcake indicated...I'll admit, I'm even more interested in seeing the finale after having read this and hope the song choice-plot connection is significant, b/c the idea is intriguing to me. If this is about Bill & Sookie, I hope their love is resurrected later...
LOL, Love the throwback to "The Ten Commandments" Thetravellerjohn21..that is one of my favorite lines ever b/c I love the way Yul Brynner said it : D

haha thanks starry for the complement on the throwback from one of my favorite classic movies
Yul Brynner said it in the King and I tho (he was King Mongkut of Siam)
He WAS in the Ten Commandments the same year (1956) but that was as Rameses :P

Yes, that is definitely one of my fave classics...as well as The King & I...here's a clip of Yul Brynner saying that famous line, as Rameses, in The Ten Commandments : )
