That terrible 'True Blood' finale: What went wrong?

TRUE-BLOOD.jpg

Maybe it’s fitting that a show about immortality just couldn’t find the right way to die.

True Blood‘s last episode was the most disappointing series finale I’ve seen in a long time. And I say “disappointing” because I’ve seen worse; the final hour of Dexter comes to mind. But something about the blandness of True Blood‘s finale felt almost offensive. Jessica and Hoyt got hitched, because it was Bill’s greatest wish to see his progeny married off? Bill just had to lecture Sookie about how having children makes life worth living? Sookie needed to chat with the Reverend about God’s plan? For a show that once skewered Ted Cruz and other self-proclaimed defenders of “family values,” this was pretty conservative stuff. READ FULL STORY

Anna Paquin celebrated 'True Blood's end by dyeing her hair purple

True Blood is full of fantastical beings: Witches, fairies, werewolves, and, of course, vampires. But Stephen Moyer still wishes were-tigers could have been included in the HBO show’s seven season run. “I was a bit sad that we didn’t get to see that,” he said of a scene from the original books where Sookie rides through a swamp on a were-tiger. Spin-off, anyone?

Rutina Wesley, Anna Paquin, Chris Bauer, and Moyer stopped by EW‘s Comic-Con Hideout to talk about the what other creatures they wanted to see on the show, the series’ final season, and how Paquin (colorfully) celebrated the end of filming.

'True Blood' star Nelsan Ellis talks Lafayette's new romance

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched this week’s episode of True Blood, “Lost Cause,” stop reading now (or, at least read our full recap first). We spoke with Nelsan Ellis, who plays fan favorite Lafayette, about his second favorite scene of the series—when Lafayette asks Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) if she really knows James (Nathan Parsons), and why it’s so unimaginable that he would want a piece of happiness, too. (His favorite Lafayette moment, for the record, remains the AIDs burger scene from season 1.)  READ FULL STORY

'True Blood' costume designer talks Eric and Pam's formal, flashback attire

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched this week’s episode of True Blood, “Lost Cause,” stop reading now. (Or, at least read our full recap first.) The Pam and Eric show continued as the duo traveled to Dallas in search of Sarah Newlin at a Ted Cruz fundraiser hosted at the Bush Library. We spoke to True Blood‘s costume designer, Audrey Fisher, about their memorable formal wear. And because we’re still obsessed with those flashbacks to 1986, 1996, and 2006, we got the backstory on those looks as well.

The Dallas Fundraiser

Seeing as how Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) would dress Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) in a purple sequin gown that Pam would joke makes her look like a “republic-nt,” and Pam would get even more joy out of dressing Eric up as the perfect Texan businessman, Fisher had one focus: “Try to get costumes that definitely were a big wink, but that weren’t too comical,” she says.

For Eric, she custom-made a traditional Western-style suit: “I had to make at least doubles of it, maybe even triples. I sketched it up. We found a great fabric that we could get enough of, because he’s a tall man—it’s a lot of yardage, more than just the average suit. And a wonderful tailor in Koreatown whipped up these beautiful suits that fit like a glove and have really beautiful Western detailing. We topped it off with not a 10-gallon hat—that would be too comical—but a really beautiful Western hat.” READ FULL STORY
