IN A NUTSHELL: True Blood Season 6 Finale, Episode 10 Recap

Alexander Skarsgard stars as Eric Northman in HBO's True Blood Season 6, Episode 10, entitled 'Radioactive'

Whoa! WTF just happened? Yeah, it’s the finale of HBO’s True Blood Season 6. Episode 10, entitled Radioactive, is certainly a nail-biter – and for many it just may be a deal breaker unless a certain something is fixed within the first five minutes of True Blood Season 7, Episode 1!

This is what went down (can’t believe this is the last one):

  • Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) and Alcide Herveaux (Joe Manganiello) go walking after Terry Bellefleur’s (Todd Lowe) funeral. It seems Alcide isn’t the mindless beefcake Sookie expected!
  • So while they are walking and talking (and is that flirting I see?), they bump into a whole pile of sparkling Twilight wannabes day-walking vampires. Sookie finally realises that Billith (Stephen Moyer) was right. She doesn’t have time to dwell on this when she spies Jason (Ryan Kwanten) among them
  • After it gets a little fangy between Jason, Sookie and Violet (Karolina Wydra), things are amended with a kiss – between Sookie and Violet! How awkward for Jason: the ultimate male fantasy – except, dude, that’s your sister!
  • For the first time ever we see Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) genuinely happy – and with Sookie nonetheless!
  • That happy high doesn’t last for long though and Pam very quickly turning into the snark we know and love so much. She decides to hunt down Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) and leaves Tara (Rutina Wesley) in charge of Willa (Amelia Rose Blaire)Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) and Tara (Rutina Wesley) talk in HBO's True Blood Season 6, Episode 10, entitled 'Radioactive'
  • Tara looks ridiculous in a straw hat
  • Sookie also looks silly in hats
  • Sookie returns to Fairyland and an eagerly waiting Warlow (Robert Kazinsky). It seems, now that all Sookie’s vampire friends are safe, she can’t see the point in an immediate fae wedding and vampire turning. But Warlow is pissy – especially after he spent all that time making a maypole while she was gone – so he slaps her! WTF?!
  • Warlow is one badass mother-fucking monster! He should be horsewhipped on the spot for that slap. But, oh no, it gets worse! He gets all nasty-pants by choking her and then tying her to the maypole. Sookie tries to nuclear-fairy-ball him but he’s too fast and ties her hands up and then proceeds to FEED off her! See, this is why you should never trust a guy who’s killed your parents – not matter WHAT the reason!Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) discovers the truth about Warlow (Robert Kazinsky) in HBO's True Blood Season 6, Episode 10, entitled 'Radioactive'
  • Billith begins the long road to redemption in this episode – so glad to see this 😀
  • Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) is very good at whipping that ‘poor me‘ attitude right out of Bill when he explains Sookie is going to be turned and it’s all his fault
  • Jason is REAL pissed when Bill and Jessica ‘fess up about Sookie – and I don’t blame him one little bit! But, oh, I do LOVE to see Jason on a mission!
  • So Adilyn (Bailey Noble) is needed to get into Fairyland – bet Andy Bellefleur (Chris Bauer) is going to love that idea – NOT! But in the end he agrees and him and Jason weapon up and head to the church with Bill, Jessica and Violet
  • Sometimes you just have to scare the crap out of a fairy to get to use her magic – I’m sure Violet is sorry Adilyn 😉
  • The rescue of Sookie gets a bit full on. This is what goes down: Adilyn gets them into Fairyland, Violet releases Sookie. Bills stakes Warlow, everyone (except Bill and Warlow) escape back to Bon Temps and batten down the hatches at Sookie’s house (because a house is SO much stronger than a 6,000 year old fairy-vampire who is pissed), Violet gives Sookie her blood to heal her
  • But wait – Warlow just walks right out of that nasty staking mess, kicks Bill and flies off. Uh-oh
  • Yeah, that old southern house just doesn’t hold up against Warlow. Within seconds, he has Andy and Violet unconscious, Jason, Andy and Adilyn locked up in Eric’s old hidey hole (sealing it up with his fairy magic) and is up those stairs and choking Sookie all over again!
  • Now somehow Adilyn manages to release them all – even though her magic is not nearly 6,000 years old
  • So Sookie is trying to get her nuclear-fairy-ball happening, but you know what happens when you’re put under pressure – she just can’t get it up!
  • Luckily Niall (Rutger Hauer) decides at that moment to reach through from the stinking otherworld and grab Warlow
  • Jason manages to stake Warlow and kill him for good this time – wonder what made his stake better than all the rest?
  • Jason and Sookie pull Niall free from the otherworld and it’s all looking good…
  • … except now that Warlow is dead, the fairy day-walking ability wears off all the vampires. Lucky for them it’s night time…
  • … except no one told Eric who is sunbathing naked in Sweden

    Meanwhile, in Sweden… #HotMenReadingBooks

  • So for a split second we get to see the great Viking’s junk before he bursts into flames
  • WTF?!
  • Seriously?!
  • Flames?????????????
  • Dead Viking?????????????
  • HBO are you FUCKING mad????????
  • While, technically, we don’t see Northman die, it is not looking good for him unless Pam can get to him in time
  • And now it’s six months later and we still don’t know the fate of Eric Northman or Pam, but it seems Sookie and Alcide are now a couple
  • Bill is a famous vampire author and it seems the only real authority on Hep V
  • 1/8 of a vampires are estimated to be infected with Hep V. Humans are carriers but it’s not a death sentence to them. Apparently it’s an unstable virus too and the mutations are erratic
  • Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell) is the mayor – WTF?!Mayor Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammel) in HBO's True Blood Season 6, Episode 10, entitled 'Radioactive'
  • Sam goes to church talks to the Bon Temps community and encourages them to go to Merlotte’s for a free ‘social’ – only catch is that you should try and hook up with a vampire there for your own protection. Pretty sure Sam in not getting re-elected as a result
  • Tara’s mum, Lettie Mae (Adina Porter) is mega creepy when trying to make amends with her daughter. I know she means well and all, but seriously? Creepy. *EDIT: Many fans are now pointing out that Lettie Mae just may be a big enough bitch to infect her daughter with Hep V. I am SO jumping on this bandwagon!
  • Poor Jason – it’s been 178 nights straight of going down on Violet and she STILL won’t put out 😦
  • Hot vampire James (Luke Grimes) can singHot vampire James (Luke Grimes) can sing in HBO's True Blood Season 6, Episode 10, entitled 'Radioactive'
  • Jessica tries to apologise to Andy for eating all his kids (LOL! It took her six months to do it – yeah, Andy’s that scary!) – surprise, surprise, Andy’s not impressed. In fact he pulls a gun on her and it looks like it’s all over red rover for Jessica Hamby. But, wait, nope, he shuts the door in her face. Phew!
  • Sookie and Alcide leave Merlotte’s early, only to be holed up by Bill. It seems he’s offering his protection to Sookie all over again – can anyone say ‘deja vu’? Sookie declines – but not before Alcide scents a mob of hungry, sick, moaning zombies vampires approaching the town!

    The Walking Dead or True Blood? You decide in Season 7…

  • Say hello to #WaitingSucks because it’s the credits now and a hell of a long wait until HBO’s True Blood Season 7!

    I’ll repeat what I wrote on FB last night (and expand).

    True Blood: waaaaaaay past jumping the shark and on to riding the Sharknado of total suckage. And not in the good way…

    I feel sorry for the actors. The show needs better writers, like, two seasons ago. It has basically become a parody of itself. I *might* come back for Season 7, but I’ll hate myself for it…

    Your recap, however, was highly entertaining. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Just saw the episode and… AAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!
    Eric meeting his end like that is way too pathetic, so I am hoping it isn’t so.
    Alcide being with Sookie feels all wrong, like she settled for him. She felt more for Bill or Eric. Alcide deserves a proper partner, or some more impressive powers, cuz yeah, he ain’t good enough, and snarling won’t change things. MOAR POWERZ PLZ (yes, I can ask for that, because I saw a fairy-vampire).
    Tara NEEDS to stop going to the gym. Seriously, it’s ugly to see.
    Jason NEEDS to get layed.

    And now, to wait for another season. All my series are on holidays except for Dexter, and even that one is almost over *sniffle*.

    I’m convinced HBO wouldn’t be stupid enough to let Eric go. Even if Alexander Skarsgard wanted out of the series, they’d still fill his pockets to stay. His fan base is what keeps the show on air (IMHO).
    I’m really not sure how I feel about Sookie and Alcide right now. It’s nice to see Sookie happy, but how long will it last for?

    And Tara – YESSSSS!!!!!!!!!!

    As for Jason – I feel SO sorry for him 😦
