True Blood Season 5: Recap #58 VIDEO:
It's really hard to cobble together a cogent explanation of what I think may happen in the last two episodes of True Blood season 5. It seems pretty likely that whatever the coming war is, it will need to carry over into season 6 as two episodes are nowhere near enough time to finish up the myriad story-lines of this season. In recent episodes, former recurring characters like Sheriff Bud Dearborne and Mike Stephens the coroner, pop up only to get cut down--permanently. In episode #58 'Hoyt' (Jim Parrack) was spared death but was glamoured at his own request to forget Jason and Jessica completely and then set out for an oil-rig job in Alaska,
We've been promised a spectacular ending and most everyone seems to believe it will be a bloodbath--but who's blood will spill most? It seems highly implausible that the human race will succumb to the vampires. It's more likely that the faeries might be at battle with the vamps and the shifters and wolves will be coming down on various sides. Humans will simply be collateral damage until they have to get seriously involved.
It also feels like the war hasn't really even gotten started yet and that perhaps season 6 and 7 can really ramp it up as a unifying feature to the story, something True Blood desperately needs. Despite it's frequent liberal outlooks sprinkled throughout the show, it really needs to have an antagonist or group of enemies that the shifters, faeries, vampires, and weres can rally together (more or less) and take down. That or go back to the story centering on Sookie It's better not to weigh down the show with 8 different plot threads getting going, then being dropped either for awhile or completely. Just go with an overarching theme, bring on the good acting, writing and direction and True Blood can go out the way it came in--as a highly enjoyable, supernatural romp.
