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.

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
