What a weird, weird, weird episode of True Blood. This is the second to last episode of True Blood ever and there was so much good, and so much wah-wah Vampire Bill. But that's OK, because love returned and now we are all alive again. Read More... http://feeds.gawker.com/~r/io9/full/~3/-peW01cASdU/true-bloods-second-to-last-episode-remembers-great-love-1623209833

As the oldest of eight siblings, Alexander Skarsgrd has always had a way with kids, which may have helped him on the set of The Giver , an adaptation of Lois Lowrys dystopian novel that arrived in theaters this weekend. Playing a character known as Father, hes responsible for taking care of genetically engineered babies before they are placed into their assigned family units. Of course, if any of these infants fail to thrive right away, Father gives them release something Eric Northman, the vampireSkarsgrd has portrayed on True Blood for seven seasons (and who refers to children as teacup humans ) would call the True Death. While Father doesnt recognize the concept of death, Eric has confronted it many times over but its not the prospect of his own death that troubles him anymore now that he has been cured of Hep-V. With Bill (Stephen Moyer) refusing to take the cure himself, effectively deciding to commit suicide, Sookie has grown increasingly distraught, and Eric does not like his love interest to be distraught. Skarsgrd, who has spent the last two months shooting Tarzan , called Vulture up from London to chat about dispensing death, his racy scenes on True Blood , and what hes going to do next.

Our top moments of the week: 13. Best Affair to Remember: Bachelor in Paradise goes behind the scenes when contestant Michelle K. hooks up with a sound guy.

Whether you’re in it for the long haul or already gave up after season 2, at some point, True Blood has somehow left you hanging. The obsession-worthy vampire drama has a knack for pulling us back in—and not only with its bevy of shirtless supernatural studs—by perfecting the art of the painfully delicious cliffhanger. Although it rarely leaves anything to the imagination (did we really just see a FULL FRONTAL?), it also manages to be a skillful tease—a potential True Death here, a ruined engagement there—but on August 23rd, the scary-sexy-bloody madness all comes to an end. Will we finally get the answers we’ve spent seven seasons pining after? Will we finally get a CLIFFHANGER-FREE FINALE?! Only time will tell, but in the meantime, let’s take a gory trip down memory lane and revisit the six times we gripped our TVs in horror and cursed those craftily-timed ending credits, in ascending order of bombshell magnitude (beware of spoilers!) : 6. Evil Is Going On Season 3, Episode 12 While Sookie is busy taking a quick trip to Fairyland and Eric is being covered in cement, Bill challenges the Queen herself to a head-to-head duel to the True Death! *Cue the ridiculously corny Matrix-inspired fight sequence* 5. You'll Be the Death of Me Season 1, Episode 12 I guess it’s our own damn fault for thinking that just any dark-skinned, pedicured foot sticking out of a car door had to be Lafayette’s, but after a harrowing, cliffhanger-filled first season, it was a pretty terrifying final shot to shoot down any false hopes for a casualty-free ending. 4. Beyond Here Lies Nothin' Season 2, Episode 12 Oh, please. You weren’t dumb enough to actually think that Bill and Sookie would be able to end the season with a successful engagement, did you? Oh, you were ? Don't feel bad; I was dumb, too, before True Blood killed my belief in happy endings. Now, WHO KIDNAPPED BILL?! 3. And When I Die Season 4, Episode 12 One cliffhanger wasn’t enough for this finale, which doled out one shocker after another. Tara gets shot after Sookie’s showdown with that were-b*tch Debbie, someone has freed Russell Edgington from his cement prison (HUGE MISTAKE!), and now Steve Newlin is back… this time with FANGS! 2. Save Yourself Season 5, Episode 12 Okay, so the whole concept of Bill as the Almighty (and all-naked) Billith didn’t end up lasting very long, but at the time, the situation seemed extremely dire. A real OHHHHH #%$@ moment, for sure. 1. Radioactive Season 6, Episode 10 I SWEAR TO GOD IF THEY JUST KILLED OFF ERIC NORTHMAN I’M NEVER WATCHING THIS SHOW AGAIN!!!! …wait, was that his penis? Do you think we’ll finally get some answers in the series finale, or will we be left with another unanswered cliffhanger ending? Will Bill and Sookie finally live happily ever after? Let us know your predictions—nbsp;along with your own finale rankings—in the comments below! Alex Gambardella is a member of the editorial and video teams for SideReel.com. She's a loud (but not necessarily proud) Truebie who has somehow managed to stick it out 'til the very end. RIP Alcide Herveaux.
Which TV series will your friends (and the entire internet) be talking about this week? Stay informed—or at least be able to fake it—with SideReel's weekly guide to The Most Important Shows on TV. America's Next Top Model (Season Premiere) Monday at 9pm on The CW Why: Because it's been almost a year since the last cycle of everyone's not-so-secret guilty pleasure aired, and we miss that bizarre alternate dimension where phrases like "smize" and booty-tooch" require no extra explanation. Prepare to talk about: How almost no one has launched a successful modeling career from this s**tshow of a program (but you love it anyway); how a boy will HAVE to win this year to keep it looking "legit"; and how it's just not the same without Mister and Miss Jay. Doctor Who (Season Premiere) Saturday at 8pm on BBC America Why: Nerds rule the world! This show has been a hit for well, 50 years, but it's really only entered the American consciousness in the last eight—mostly because of nerds on the internet (we love you, nerds on the internet!). Also, there's a new star (Peter Capaldi), and he's basically awesome. Prepare to talk about: How great Peter Capaldi is as the Doctor and how you don't even MISS Matt Smith for real, you don't even care how many enemies that makes you; also, how Clara is just the worst. True Blood (Series Finale) Sunday at 9pm on HBO Why: Um, it's the series finale of the show that defined camp for a generation! No more vampire Eric! No more naked Sookie! No more beyond-cray TV! Prepare to talk about: Vampire Eric's body; how you're actually kind of relieved it's finally over; did we mention Vampire Eric's body? Leah E. Friedman is the editor of SideReel.com.
