All Six of True Blood’s WTF-Worthy Cliffhangers Ranked in Order of Shock Factor

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 She's a loud (but not necessarily proud) Truebie who has somehow managed to stick it out 'til the very end.

The Most Important Shows on TV: Week of August 18, 2014

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 You can follow her musings on  Twitter .

'True Blood': Is Bill Going to Die?

I was so set on Bill and Sookie ending up together, I didn't really consider the possibility that Bill might not want to survive Hep V. As I've previously stated before , Sookie infecting Bill was the perfect way to bring them together. And they totally did get back together! Sookie felt guilty about infecting Bill, and with death looming around the corner, her opinion of Bill and their rocky relationship softened. But now that Sookie is trying to cure him, he is seemingly shirking from the possibility of living. What's up with that?   Read More... //
