True Blood's Final Season: Where Were We and What's Next?

Goodbyes suck!

True Blood returns for its seventh and final season Sunday (9/8c, HBO) and picks up just moments after most of the townspeople of Bon Temps gathered in support of the "One Vampire-One Human" movement that paired people up in exchange for clean blood and protection. But a horde of Hep-V-infected vamps were about to close in and surely cause chaos in the little backwoods parish. Sadly, you shouldn't expect everyone to survive the inevitable clash. It is the final season, after all!

So, what's in store for Sookie & Co. before the HBO fantasy drama meets its true death? TVGuide.com offers up this quick refresher on where we left off and a juicy tease about what to expect in the final season:

True Blood's Rutina Wesley on Tara and Pam's... Love?

While Bill is off praying to a bloody deity and Sookie is dealing with a mysterious, centuries-old vampire who she's been promised to, True Blood's Tara (Rutina Wesley) has been learning the ways of being a vampire. As the season comes to a close, Tara has certainly transformed from a constantly angry victim to a take-charge baby vamp. TVGuide.com turned to Wesley to get the scoop on Pam and Tara's burgeoning relationship as well as what's in store for the finale and how she's handled being one of the undead this season.

True Blood: Has Lafayette Lost His Mojo?

When True Blood first premiered, Lafayette Reyonds (Nelsan Ellis) added some much needed comedic relief to the HBO drama. His debaucherous — and often illegal — activities provided a nice change of pace from the whole Bill and Eric whinefest that is Sookie Stackhouse's terribly depressing life. But after five seasons, it seems Lafayette may have lost his mojo. read more

Weekend TV: True Blood Arrives, Veep Goes, Mad Men Finale, The Tonys

Very likely coming soon to a T-shirt near you: "Bless the Blood." This new catchphrase is a favorite of True Blood's new vamp in town: Roman, the 500-year-old Guardian of the Vampire Authority, a zealot who's about to complicate the already messy lives of the bloodsuckers who live among the shape-shifters, territorial werewolves, telepathic fairy hybrids, assorted bigots and bumpkins of Bon Temps, Louisiana. read more

True Blood Episode Recap: "And When I Die"

On Sunday's season finale of True Blood, at least three, possibly four former cast members, previously thought to be dead, or as dead as one can be on this show, returned for an extra-spooky, Halloween-set season finale. Great, you think, just what this show needs, more characters. But wait! This episode also has a steep body count, my friends. At least four series regulars appeared to die during this hour. It's really hoary cliff-hanger stuff that will continue to enrage you for the next 10 months or so until True Blood's fifth season is finally upon us. Who died? Who was resurrected? Let's do this: I'll tell you what happened during this jam-packed hour, and then I'll make some wildly speculative predictions about Season 5. Then you let me know if you agree in the comments section below. Deal?
