TV Review: TRUE BLOOD: Season 7, Episode 9: Love is to Die [HBO]

Deborah Ann Woll True Blood Love is to Die

HBO‘s True Blood Love is to Die TV Show Review. True Blood: Season 7, Episode 9: Love is to Die is the penultimate episode of the seven year long series…and I thought all roads led to Bill Compton (Stephen Lang) and Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) riding off into the celestial sunset together…clearly I am wrong. We’ve got one episode left and Bill is dying. [I didn’t see the series ending like this…but I didn’t see a whole lot of the last couple of years like it was.]

At the top Bill managed to convince Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) that turning down Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp)’s blood, which is the only cure for Hep-V, was the right decision for Sookie.

Mr. Gus (Will Yun Lee) discovered where Sookie lived after he learned that she knew Sarah was the cure. [Mr.Gus surely wants to keep his Nu Blood idea a secret…we assume he will try to kill Sookie in the last episode, and perhaps give her two forever suitors an opportunity to ride in on horseback at the 11th hour to save her.]

Bill was quite clear that he felt that a life without him was the right thing for Sookie. For others…true love sprung eternal as Hoyt Fortenberry (Jim Parrack) and Jessica Hamby (Deborah Ann Woll) finally found their way back to one another. And Lafayette Reynolds (Nelsan Ellis) seemed to have found his dream come true in James (Nathan Parsons).

I am genuinely excited to see how showrunner Brian Buckner wraps this gothic fang fest up.
