TV Review: TRUE BLOOD: Season 7, Episode 6: Karma [HBO]

Stephen Moyer True Blood Karma

HBO’s True Blood Karma TV Show Review. True Blood: Season 7, Episode 6: Karma opened with the aftermath of the Yakuza shootout. Soon we learned that Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) was infected with Hep-V…and Sookie the one who infected him. [Whether Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) and Bill find true love with one another by the end of the season leaves us in constant inquiry. That one remaining question is the element that buoys (and saves) this finale season.]

To keep up the tension, Sookie’s fairy blood was causing the disease to spread through Bill at a rapid rate. And there was an antidote revealed: Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp). She created the disease, and she is the cure – “Karma is a B****”…I’m sorry, I had to. [Anna Camp’s character Sarah Newlin is the best thing to come out of True Blood in a very long time. The writers continue to give Anna whip smart, rich dialogue every week. Her character becoming more ridiculous and hilarious with each line delivered.]

The question was whether or not the 3 people that know Sarah is the antidote; Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard), Pam De Beaufort (Kristin Bauer van Straten) and Mr. Gus (Will Yun Lee) – President of the Yakamoto Corporation can rally, bottle up her blood and distribute it to save the vamp and human victims…fast enough to save Bill.

Last week’s Lost Cause episode was a high for writers (and fans) with respect to authentic characterization. They hit true notes and we liked the familiarity. However, this episode fell short again. From Adilyn and Wade to Lettie Mae and Lafayette to Violet and Jason, all B and C and D storylines fell flat.

There are only 4 episodes left for True Blood to tie up it’s loose ends. Surely not everyone will get their happy ending…but we are ever pulling for Sookie and Bill.
