Ever wonder what a fairy burlesque club looks like? It's sort-of like Moulin Rouge. But with more men in top hats and twinkly noises. And revelations about what happened to Sookie's parents.  Yup, we're back in fairyland, but it's not quite the bizarro heaven-like fairy world where Sookie lived for a year last season. Instead, fairies have set up shop in an invisible club in the middle of a field (the same field where Jessica was drawn to that man who smelled good). I mean, if you're escaping vampires, humans and everything else, why not throw in some burlesque?

Tonight is the night that we say goodbye to the people and supes of Bon Temps, La., forever. We open up with Sookie and Bill - the end of this show is mirroring the beginning. He's come over to talk about his decision to die. He's waxing all nostalgic. Her living room is the first place where he “called” on her, meeting Jason and their grandmother. She's confused because “nostalgia and suicide don't mix.” Basically, Bill is realizing the same thing that Angel realized with Buffy: Vampires and humans can't have long-term relationships.

When in Louisiana, visit Bon Temps Cemetery: The fightingest -- and foggiest -- cemetery south of the Mason-Dixon Line! I applaud the "True Blood" folks for having a major battle in the middle of the season. Usually, the Big Turning Point Fight Plot happens toward the end (think Rene or Maryann being a bull or Sookie going to fairyland). So this was a bit of a bold move. Plus, I needed some sort of antidote for the lovey-dovey Sookie/Eric situation. Here's what went down.

We pick things up in Dallas, where Sarah Newlin's sister, Amber, is cured and has a totally different outlook on life and sisterly love. Pam, Eric and Mr. Gus are trying their best to get info out of her, but Amber tells them that her sister no longer is Sarah; she's Numi. She's changed and she's also the antidote. That's when Mr. Gus gets really excited. If Sarah's the antidote, she's worth a lot of money. Amber should give her up for the cash. They try to remind Amber that Sarah is responsible for Hep-V, which killed her boyfriend.

Just how many subplots swirled about in tonight's season premiere? I think I lost count at 32. While it's always good to meet new characters (like Vampire Authority rep Nora, who gives off a distinct Rachel Weisz vibe) and see others get extended time (always good to see Pam!), the Bon Temps community is getting a bit crowded -- and a bit hard to follow. You're not sure what you're supposed to care about most: Sookie, who used to be the main character and is now often shifted to the background?

Were you expecting Bill Compton to have a master plan? To be nice Bill all along and not some crazy vampire religious zealot? It could have happened that way. But yeah, it didn't. The opposite happened. When Eric and Sookie track him down in his Massive Master Authority Crazy Person Bedchamber, Bill has just staked Salome (I'd say R.I.P. to Salome, but it wouldn't mean it), having tricked her into drinking "Lilith's blood" that he has spiked with lots of silver. Some major "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" stuff here (before she's staked, Salome even says "she chose wisely)

"True Blood" is back, and Season 6 picks up right where Season 5 left off. We're watching bloody Billith rise, but this time from his red-tinged perspective. I'll be honest - I'm approaching Season 6 a little nervously. What will a "True Blood" without Alan Ball at the helm look like? But before I get ahead of myself, here's what you need to know about what went down in Episode 1. Billith has Risen We spend the bulk of the episode trying to figure out just what Bill has become.

We're almost a third of the way through Season 6 (which at 10 episodes will be "True Blood's" shortest season yet) and after last night's episode, I'm finally getting a clear idea of where this season is headed. While You're No Good was uneven and occasionally overwrought, the episode remained largely focused on our key characters and storylines. Eric and Willa, sitting in a tree coffin The episode opens in Willa Burrell's bedroom, where Eric informs her she will die for her father's sins.

Like Pam's relations with her therapist, last night's "True Blood" was "oozy but productive" -- similar to the prior week's episode , "Dead Meat" was spent moving our characters into place for their inevitable finale showdowns. While the writers continue to whittle down and weave together the various plots we've been following all summer, I must admit to being a little disappointed. It's the third-to-last episode, and I wanted more action and less exposition. Never cross a Norseman Especially not Eric Northman.

This week's cold open is just cruel. At first, it appears that our Eric Northman is alive, holed up in a nice hotel in a Spanish-speaking country. But It becomes clear that it's a dream as soon as Jason pops up, upset that Eric had to get so far away from him to “think.” So this is one of those sexually charged dreams humans have after drinking vampire blood? OK, got it. It's played for laughs, with Eric mixing Jason a martini "Cocktail" - style and asking Jason about Violet, in a tone that makes him sound like a jilted high school lover.

The sixth season of True Blood has come to a close, but was it the epic ending that fans were hoping for? The finale offered up death(s), new relationships and a new big bad - unfortunately, instead of feeling like a return to the show's roots or even a change of direction, it all just felt like more of the same.   Body Count: One, or Two? When Terry was shot, I hoped that his was the big death rumored to be occurring sometime this season. That would mean that Eric Northman (played by Alexander Skarsgard, and the center of most of the rumors)

Last night's episode didn't waste any time getting into it, and I'm not going to either. What a difference a strong opening makes Before the theme song had even played, we'd gotten a whole lot of action AND information. In rapid-fire succession, we alternate between Sookie and Warlow at Casa Stackhouse and Jess and Bill at Compton manor. Sookie and her "vampire-killin' ball of light" are not amused with Warlow's declaration of love, or his claim that he only murdered Sookie's parents because they were going to kill Sookie.
