True Blood Review: Season 5 Finale 'Save Yourself'

HBO’s hit vampire drama “True Blood” was nothing but crazy if you’ve watched the season five finale of the show, titled “Save Yourself”. Save yourself, indeed! If you have yet to watch Sunday’s episode of the show, turn back now as this post contains nothing but spoilers as we round up the fifth season. If you’ve missed the show, you can read our full and detailed recap here.

WARNING: As we’ve said before, this post contains spoilers for the season five finale of “True Blood”, so if you have yet to watch it, then “save yourself”!

Sunday night’s show was filled with death — and creatively, no less. The first death of the evening was courtesy of Eric, delivering a stake to a fairy taunting Russell Edgington. Good night forever, vampire King of Mississippi.

Just as spectacularly, Roslyn bites it at the Authority HQ when she tries to get Luna-as-Steve Newlin to go live on air to do damage control. Luna, a skinwalker, shifts back to herself before the end of the newscast and to save her, Sam flies his bug self into Roslyn’s mouth. Right then, he shifts back to himself and explodes her from the inside. Alan Ball knows how to go out with a bang, that’s for sure.

Packmaster J.D. dies at the hands of a doped up Alcide, who reunites the pack to lay off the V. He was a beast and smacked the bejesus out of J.D., right before he killed him. Meanwhile, Jason is killing every vampire in sight at the Authority headquarters, including the receptionist, Chelsea.

Salome tells Bill that Lilith has chosen her, but she didn’t predict that he would’ve known that she would turn on him. She drank the vial of Lilith’s blood, but it was actually regular blood laced with silver poison. She tells him that Lilith has chosen wisely and he stakes her.

In the end, Andy got Morella’s four babies to raise, Pam and Tara kissed and Warlow was nowhere to be found. Also of note is how Bill, after drinking the blood, melted into a pool of blood — only to arise as the new Lilith. Billith?

What did you think of the episode? Were you shocked at the blood bath?
