True Blood Finale Countdown Starts Now.

Truebies, we will have support group meetings all hiatus, don't you worry about that. Bring cakes and donuts, I'll bring copious amounts of booze. I was thinking of branching out this hiatus with more news as well as any spoilers I can dig up. This season flew by too fast.

Let's take it day by day, we can do it!
From Wetpaint, it's a tie in to Ausiello's spoiler from yesterday-
Okay, Truebies. We have some major dirt on the True Bloodseason finale! Michael Ausiello spilled the deets, saying, “By the end of the hour, the show will be down at least one series regular.” Of course we have our guesses, but now that we know it’s one series regular, at the very minimum, this really changes the game. Let’s go over the facts. Marnie is not exactly dead, so there’s still some hell to pay in Bon Temps. Even though Bill and Eric “killed” her, Marnie’s hippy-dippy witch spirit has taken over poor Lafayette. Someone give Lala a break! There’s also that matter of Alcide killing Marcus. We can’t imagine that’ll go over well with the were packs. Then there’s the finale preview. Bill and Eric are being burned Antonia-style at the stake, Arlene is in danger, and Pam is looking awfully distraught (but we’re pretty sure it’s not because she lost her newly-obtained vintage Cartier). And we know the fierce Pam only cries over one immortal being... Oh no! Could it be... Eric? 
No way it's Eric, they may leave it a cliffhanger but Askars ain't going nowhere.
Some thoughts from the HDRoom-

As the "Death" trailer recently teased, Marne's death in no way signified the character's exit from the show. Her spirit has hopped into Lafayette, much in the same way Antonia hopped into her. Lafayette would call it "reverse puking."
'Soul of Fire' taught us that Jesus is the only witch capable of separating a spirit from its host. It took a big toll on him to do it once, so will he be up to the challenge again so soon? He's definitely up near the top of the "this could be their final episode" list.
Alan Ball and his True Blood team love to tease what's coming in the next season as the previous comes to a close. We may have caught a glimpse of that when Andy stumbled into a Faerie in the woods and promptly got naked with her. He made a pledge to the Faerie that could turn out to be a very, very bad decision.
I've been wondering all season when the Faeries would make their return. They took up the first 10 or so minutes of the season 4 premiere, then Eric offed Sookie's Faerie God Mother in gruesome fashion. Surely they seek revenge.
In the finale trailer, HBO teases the tagline "Your Past Will Haunt You," showing a Red Riding Hood like figure moving through the woods. Is it Sookie? Or someone else?
The trailer also shows Eric and Bill about to roast under a hot fire. We've already seen them willing to die for Sookie once. Is this is a similar deal, or are they under a spell?

Kristin talks about TB and the finale on Fox News-

I'm not scared of dyin' and I don't really care, if it's peace you find in dying then let the time be near. Especially if you become a vamp (one child born to carry on). I miss Laura Nyro, what a loss.

I'm also dying to see what happens next with Alcide, Debbie, and Sam. They all end up at Alcide and Debbie's place, since Marcus is there to put the moves on Debbie and (whoops!) he's also brought his little girl. When Alcide and Sam burst in on Debbie and Marcus, Sam drops some revenge punches on Marcus for killing Tommy and kidnapping the kid, but it's Alcide who goes wild. Suddenly disillusioned by both his pack and his girlfriend, he kills Marcus in a rage. After he does that, eyes blazing, he ritually separates himself from Debbie, hurling horrible phrases like "I will no longer share flesh with you." The acting in this moment is incredible. We can see Alcide's wolf nature tearing free and see Debbie's soul collapse as her worst fear comes true. I've heard rumblings that the werewolves and shifters will be the focus of next season, and I hope they are. Right now, they're the ones with the most interesting stories to tell. They're the ones who are surprising me because the series hasn't trapped them inside a phony conflict.
Oh... and Alcide's nasty break-up with Debbie is totally the Sucker Punch of the Week. Turns out, some things are worse than getting dumped via post-it.
Episode #48 – 4.12: 'And When I Die' Season Finale.
It’s Samhain, Wicca’s greatest holy day, and spirits of the dead surface in Bon Temps, giving Sookie some valuable allies to combat Marnie’s newest incarnation. Lafayette’s latest medium encounter imperils his relationship with Jesus; Jason finds confession good for the soul, but not the body; Alcide makes a heartfelt appeal to the woman he loves; Terry receives an unexpected visitor at Merlotte’s; Sam and Luna envision a storybook ending, for once; Nan wears out her welcome with Bill and Eric. As Season Four comes to a shattering conclusion, Debbie confronts Sookie and Tara with deadly consequences, and the denizens of Bon Temps brace for a new crisis with a familiar face

MarqueeBlogs has a humorous recap also-
Back at Moon Goddess, Marnie looked into a pool of the dead witch’s blood and asked to see the future. When she saw herself with a bullet between the eyes, she ordered everyone to participate in a spell that, unbeknownst to them, lured the vamps toward her wall of protection, which just so happened to be made of sunlight.
Jason beamed his thoughts to Sookie, who then fairy-blasted the circle and broke the spell cast against the vampires. Marnie then punished her with a spell from Johnny Cash’s Big Book of Witchcraft and encircled her in a ring of fire.
Meanwhile, Jesus’ spell worked and he freed not only Sookie and Antonia, but he broke Marnie’s protection spell as well, giving the vampires access to Moon Goddess.
When Bill and Eric entered to kill Marnie, Roy – the most loyal little witch there ever was – told them if they wanted to get to Marnie they'd have to go through him. Eric took him up on his offer and ripped his heart out. The cherry on the cake of my life was when he drank from one of the valves like it was a straw. Let there be no question, Original Eric is the best Eric.
