but I'm also rather mad that they ended it on such a huge cliffhanger on so many fronts.  It just felt incomplete.

Haven't they ended almost every season with some vampire or another bearing his fangs? The ending seemed par for the course with True Blood.

That's the idea, to leave you hanging so you'll tune in for next season.

It was the number of cliffhangers they put into that finale that I'm annoyed with.  There were at least two big ones.

"Cut" is too pedestrian. There was a plot prior to the linked comic where Ethan became smart so Lilah and Lucas counterbalanced and got really dumb.

I've not yet watched ANY True Blood, so while I posted a pic (as I have some idea of the storyline) I have yet to indulge it. Is Sookie really that annoying / superfluous?

No, that would be the writing staff for this season.

No, that would be the writing staff for this season.

She was also noticeably pregnant (real life, not in the show) the whole season which ruled out just about any action or uh..other type of scene besides her sitting (with pillow in lap) or standing there (shot from behind).

I don't have high hopes for next season and honestly I think it will probably be the last.  Charlene Harris is already mostly finished with the last book and is already distancing herself from the show (and starting a whole new series, unknown if it's detective or paranormal) and really the only thing shared with the books now are the names and title.  That's fine except that most of the audience I would imagine are the book readers and I've yet to find anyone diehard book fan actually happy with the show.  It's honestly too bad such a huge money making gold mine was basically squandered because of certain agendas and poor writers.

I will say that this last season actually made Tara slightly less than annoying.

All things considered, Merlotte's, while cursed, is also pretty miraculous, considering that its owner is missing more often than not, they're always down a waitress, and people die alarmingly while in the vicinity.

I'm assuming the finale sets up the next season, because right now I'm having trouble seeing how they're going to go on.

Definitely, there's no way that that will be real. Overall, I enjoyed the finale, and thought that the season as a whole was a big step up from last year, though nowhere as good as the first couple of seasons. Hopefully, they stick to their guns next year and keep the show focused on Bon Temps.

Yeah, I think this season was okay, but I hope Bon Temp will be the focus. Agreed, on the spoiler

I didn't care for the last few seasons. This season it seemed like they turned it into a comedy and I thought it was fantastic. I fully expect next season to go back to suck.

I thought this was the worst season and by a significant margin. Horrible writing and directing pretty much from start to finish in my opinion. Ugh.

Nothing could be worse than season 5, with the bullshit authority and the focus on Lilith. She was in it this year, too, but not as much, plus they killed off the fairies and finished the werewolf pack storyline this year, so that's a big plus.

Concerning Eric and the storyline next season

Spoiler for Hiden:
Eric has already given an interview saying he's part of the next season and the main storyline next season is the fight against the Hep-V infected "zombie" vampires.  It's assumed that Pam finds him before he dies and will nurse him back to health.
