Finale Fangover

Pullover, PULEEZE?
We are pulled over for the next nine months, approximately. Even when we are pissed off at the writers we love our characters, mostly. After the finale I started thinking we only got the Pam/Eric background story because they were breaking them up. I hope that isn't the case and they still are at Fangtasia together. We didn't get much of a reunion but at least the looks between them went deep and was joyful. 
We'll have our hiatus support therapy sessions going on again,  (as of now there is nothing standing in the way). Group hugs.
The Final Fangover: Extra Blood on HBO GO; The Birth of Bilith; Alan Ball Says Goodbye

Did the explosive season finale leave you craving more Blood? Patient viewers who waited after the credits rolled on HBO GO were treated to a special bonus scene, and if you enabled the interactive features, you could see even more. Watch the extra scene right now, and find out what was going through Jason's mind as he rode the elevator with a group of vampires in the Authority headquarters. 
Elsewhere at the Authority, Jessica recorded her final -- and longest -- blog post of the season, in which she and Pam discuss what they miss most about the outside world and complain about the reason they're locked up: "Bill f**king Compton." Bill undergoes quite the transformation himself, after drinking the blood of Lilith, he emerged as what fans have dubbed "Bilith." One enterprising fan on Reddit ventured what season six might look like if directed by Quentin Tarantino. And Stephen Moyer tells TV Line what it was liked to be covered head to toe in fake blood.
The finale was also the end for Russell Edgington, as Eric was finally able to settle a centuries-old score, leaving show creator Alan Ball with mixed feelings. "I get really upset where I write scenes where characters who I love die," he says in this week's Inside the Episode video. This is Ball's final episode at the helm of True Blood, as TV Guide and E! Online report. He took to HBO Connect to answer fans' questions after the finale, and shared parting words in a video that aired right before it.
Alan Ball talked to TVGuide-Complete interview at the source.
Alan Ball, who has been the creative force behind the first five seasons of True Blood, says he has complete faith in new showrunner Mark Hudis — and he thinks fans should, too.
"He knows what he's doing, he's run shows before, he's been a writer-producer on this show for two seasons and has written and produced some really excellent episodes," Ball said during an online Q&A. "I'm just asking him and the writing staff to keep making True Blood ... True Blood!"
Ball said the most recent fifth season of the show, has been one of his personal favorites. "I really enjoyed this last season and the undermining of the Authority by the fundamentalists," Ball said. "I thought it was a really fun thing for our characters to be involved in and really interesting and complicated."
He'll also miss some of the characters he's leaving behind. "I love all the characters deeply, but the most fun for me to write are Jason, Lafayette and Russell Edgington," he said. "They each have such a distinctive voice."
"I really enjoyed Bill because he's always struggled with being what he is," Ball continued. "I've really enjoyed Jason because I think he has really struggled to find meaning in his life over these last couple of seasons, and he's really hit a wall with being the 'hot guy,' and that's not really doing anything for him. I've enjoyed Pam and how earlier she was mostly comic relief but now she's developed her own story with her own emotional landscape. And I think that's really interesting, because she's such a guarded character."

"Hidden" synopsis from Shocktillyoudrop- Ray (Skarsgård), Claire (Riseborough) and their seven-year-old daughter, Zoe, are an average American family in Kingsville, North Carolina—except they have existed in a bomb shelter since escaping a day of devastation that changed everything.
For 301 days, they have transformed their cement prison into a home, holding on to memories of the past and hope for a normal life someday. And for 301 days, the family has eluded what looms above the surface—the heavy breathing and booming footsteps that punctuate the night, threatening their fragile existence. All the while, the family has managed to stay hidden. Until now. Now their safe haven has been breached…and something is coming for them.

Looking more the model than actor in GQ AUSTRALIA he's #5 in the most stylish category-
5. Alexander Skarsgard, The Viking
It’s not such a bad predicament to be faced with — being six foot four and having the looks of a Nordic god. But Skarsgård, Eric Northman in HBO’s True Blood, knows he risks being typecast as the good-looking hunk in cheesy chick flicks. “The nice thing is that as long as I’m doing this TV show I’ve got fuck-you money,” Skarsgard has told GQ. “So I can say no to things. I never want to be in a position where I can’t defend why I say yes.”
We like that as a motto for life. Do what you truly believe in doing and you’ll never have to defend yourself to anyone.

The Insider's recap- Will Pam and Tara Live Happily Ever After?

"They both were, if not full-on lesbians, than bisexual. They both were characters with real attitude. And they both hate each other — at least they did at the beginning of the season. And that, to me, felt like it could create a lot of tension that could turn romantic towards the end. [But] here's the thing with relationships on True Blood: Once they happen then you have to throw a monkey-wrench into them, because to have people be happy is not that exciting."
