12 Essential True Blood Episodes

For seven seasons between and , True Blood was the destination for all fans of twisted, uncensored, and insanely soapy vampire drama. Following dozens of attractive of people who did bad things whenever possible, regardless of whether they were a vampire or not, the series was as soapy as it was addictive — and as infuriating as it was filled to the brim with far too many characters. Boasting a series-spanning love square unlike any other HBO drama, True Blood was renowned for its ability to test the patience of fans, and to ruin and redeem characters at the drop of a hat, whenever it really felt like it.

I was like, ‘Alright, I’ve had enough. Anyway, With live-action adaptations of teeny-bopper vamper books like Twilight and The Vampire Diaries making younger girls across the globe go into fits of fangirling, it was great to see adults getting their fair share of a little blood-sucking fun adapted from the Charlaine Harris Sookie Stackhouse series.

It was part camp, part murder mystery, wrapped in a fun, leathery, spankable bow. Aside from all the sex, the show actually had a solid plotline upon its induction even when you added the mind-reading waitress Sookie Stackhouse, her vampire boyfriend, Bill Compton, and her shape-shifting boss, Sam Merlotte. The intense acting only made the show all the more fun to watch as you were either left fanning yourself from all the sexual tension or covering your eyes from the copious amounts of blood.

In fact, I got so into the show, that I began reading its source material, Dead Until Dark , midway into the season. It was a bit of a racing game for me, as each episode more or less corresponded with a chapter in the mystery novel. However, curiosity got the better of me and I would finish the book before the season finale. I was converting friends and family members and making sure they tuned in, proposing to host my own True Blood parties.

ET, HBO , it brings to an end seven seasons of perhaps one of the most confounding successes in television history. And, for many of those who stayed with it past the second season, five years of hate watching. Because after Season 2, the show tried to be more — so, so much more — and failed spectacularly at every turn. Yes, the central figure in the True Blood universe had little to do after Season 1 except get herself into life-threatening situations that vampires Bill her real-life husband Stephen Moyer or Eric would be forced to get her out of.

Most of them had nothing to do with the central plot of True Blood and their respective conclusions or lack thereof made them even more trivial than they seemed on the surface. There, they discover … a gun? Tara reveals she buried it there as a child rather than killing her biological father, who drove Lettie Mae to be the horrible person she was. But the revelation of the gun and the explanation of its existence were legendarily poor writing decisions.

At the time of last Sunday’s season premiere of True Blood —its last ever—the most controversial thing about the episode seemed to be viewers’ inability to decide if it was brilliant or horrible. For whatever reason the mainstream turned on the show in a big way around Season 4 and every subsequent year has inspired more and more vitriol.

But a long view of the series shows that it began as a frequently laughable exercise in insanity and has never wavered from that mission, so those claiming a drop-off in quality are very much misremembering its origins. But exhaustion is exhaustion, no matter how restrained, tense, and intimate this final season promises to be, so fine. Anyway, you didn’t come here for a critical essay about how one of TV’s top-rated shows devolved into an underdog story.

No, you came here because for the first time in a while the typically desperate-to-shock True Blood has managed to generate an honest-to-goodness controversy! In a truly good piece of reporting, BuzzFeed’s Louis Peitzman busted wide open the case of Luke Grimes , the actor who joined Season 6 as James, Jessica’s high-cheekboned, brooding loner boyfriend in the vampire concentration camp.

Tons of eyebrows were raised last December when reports surfaced that Grimes had left the production—his highest profile role to date—over “creative differences. So, in a truly retrograde bit of homophobia, Grimes decided that playing a gay or, really, bisexual role was unacceptable, whereas playing a blood-sucking demon and occasional murderer was totally fine. Also, before anybody claims that Grimes was right to walk away from a role when he wasn’t given fair warning about his character’s sexuality shift, remember that this is TRUE BLOOD , one of the gayest shows of all time and one in which almost every vampire character becomes bisexual over time.

Both of the show’s male heroes have had same sex dalliances Bill Compton in fantasy sequences, and Eric Northman in actual sexual intercourse with a man he intended to murder.
