Stumbling Through the Bloody Week

Pam, the writers think it will be cool if you fly too, think of all the pumps you could have saved .
Rollingstone interview with Todd Lowe-
When did you find out this was the way your character's storyline was headed?
I found out at the beginning [of the season], when we just started shooting. I guess it was in late January. I got a call from my rep because I was driving, and I hadn't read or auditioned for anything recently, so I was like, "I wonder what this call is." Then Brian Buckner, the new showrunner, took me out for a drink and told me how [Terry's] going to go out. It made good sense. It was the right time. I was happy to die for the good of the many and for the good of the show. And I think it was impactful. I watched the episode last night, and I got emotional again. I was emotional when I first heard about it, I was emotional at the table read, I was emotional when we shot it. And now, I feel like a big weight has been lifted off my back. I can focus now on another project.
I thought the final scene between you and Carrie Preston ("Arlene") was perfect. I really like how Terry died in peace. It was a real honor to the character because he's been there since the beginning.
You know, what I was the most flattered about is that they kept announcing at the beginning of the season that a major character was going to die. Like, "Oh, wow, they're considering me a major character." That's flattering, if not a bit misleading. But it felt good to be included as that. I never really saw myself as that, but I guess Terry had gotten bigger through the years, and kind of played his storyline out, and it was the right time to go.
Were you bummed that you didn't get to go out in a blaze of blood and guts and gore like most True Blood characters?
No. I'm a little bummed that I have to leave the party early. But I'm still friends with everyone in the cast and a lot of people on the crew. You work on a show for six years, and – anytime you're an actor – when a play closes its run, there's postpartum depression there. So I'm bummed mainly that I don't get to work with all these great people anymore on this project.MORE

Going to miss Arliss's Governor, he lit up every scene he was in because he can act his ass off.

An eccentric would-be writer and full-time dishwasher does everything and anything to prove to his skeptical inamorata that they are meant to be, in this winsome romantic comedy from director Jeremiah Chechik (Benny & Joon).http:/tiff.net/filmsandschedules/festiva­l/2013/rightkindofwrong

Interview with Joe Manganiello at MTV"I'm glad that he's not taking anybody's crap anymore," Manganiello said of Alcide. "There's only so many times you can get punched, shoved, cheated on, just repeatedly. It gets so frustrating, and I know when that happens to me, the next day after the episode airs, I'm going to get a call from my dad. 'Why didn't you kill him? You could destroy him. You can kill everyone! Why are they letting this happen?' I just don't want those phone calls from my dad. This year's great. He's getting punched in the face and then he's just knocking people out, which is the way it should be. Don't punch an angry werewolf in the face. If it seems like a good idea at the time, take a nap."
Eric loves mimicing these people of Louisiana, they buy it every time for a short while at least.
                                                    just for the hell of it, love this photo.
After this last episode, I think we've had most of the photos that were taken during filming (and are in earlier spoiler threads 1-7, linked here on the right side- Odds and Sods) have been shown in scenes. All but one, if I remember correctly it's Eric in a work jumpsuit outside the Trublood plant. 

The Fangover: A Teary Goodbye; Bill Faces Burrell Head-On; and A Self-Described "Danger Whore"
Life and (true) death stakes are nothing new for 'True Blood,' but this week’s episode really lived up to the season’s tagline: “No one lives forever.” A well-intentioned glamouring seals the mercy-kill deal Terry Bellefleur orchestrated last week, and the former Marine meets his end. Director Howard Deutch shares in the Inside the Episode that the scene “took on a life of its own.” Writer Daniel Kenneth adds that it was important the audience see a demon-free Terry: “Ultimately, he dies happy.”
Critics and fans were equally distraught to lose Terry, who’s been a staple since Season 1.
A wonderful show about skin walkers/weres that I watched and mourned it's cancelation was Wolf Lake, it is now streaming on  CBS.com part network's  “Second Look” summer feature. TVLine

We all know Stephen Moyer can act, most famously in his current starring role on HBO's "True Blood."  But did you know Stephen can sing and dance, too?  He actually began his career inl theater, and now he's back on the stage at the Hollywood Bowl in a production of the musical, "Chicago. MORE

EW's Interview with Carrie PrestonPreston learned her TV husband Terry, played by Todd Lowe, was going to die before the season began. “We were still on hiatus, and Todd just texted me and said, ‘Goodbye, Terry.’ I called him up, and I was like, ‘WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?’ We were just completely devastated. As Todd says, ‘Nobody wants to leave the party early,’” she recalls. “But we put ourselves in the hands of the writers and we trust them, and I think the way they chose to have that moment happen was very poignant and not like anything else that happened on the show. I think it was a necessary turning point for the show to bring it back to its original roots, which are grounded in relationships — in particular, human ones. What is making this season so special is that it’s also going back to [the idea that] the worst thing in this world is humans. In season 1, Rene [Michael Raymond-James] was the murderer, and he was human. Then we went off for many seasons into the worlds of the supernatural, and now we’re back into the world of the humans — both glorifying them in the relationship with Terry and Arlene, and vilifying them with the Governor and the Vamp Camp.” (“That was very philosophical. Sorry,” she adds, laughing.) MORE
