The True Blood S6 finale ended with a lot of big-ish to enormously relevant moments to Sookie and company. Even with with the Killy Kill McKill mood of season 6, I’m elated to note that all of my favorite old and new characters survived to the credits. Although next season remains to be seen.[/caption]

Before we begin the long journey to accepting that we won’t see Jason Stackhouse’s abs for almost a year, partake in some. SPOILERY FINALE EPISODE TIDBITS for sharing — after the cut.

I think this was the best episode of True Blood in quite some time, don’t you think? After the end of the hour, I realized I didn’t roll my eyes at nearly anyone. I’m thinking the last great episode was in Season 4 when Sookie and Amnesi-Eric first slept together (two seasons ago!) and also in the same episode a bewitched Jessica walked into the sun and I had to wait a whole week to find out she didn’t die. (I remember being pretty sure that I would have stopped watching in protest if the almost-death of Babyvamp Jess was an actual one. Given the frequency of characters meeting their maker (at least 1 per episode these days) I’m pretty sure I’ll consider a boycott if/when she does — knock on a wooden stake.

Shifting back to this past installment, the cast and crew of this HBO show sometimes show to us from time to time; during the gore and the camp and the bizarre, they hit it out of the park and remind us, “We can be super awesome. Our boss did in make Six Feet Under.” Keep it up, television show.

So, another season Of True Blood has started! While I was writing the recap, I had an issue or two with possible plot holes and general wolf weirdness and Luna. Oh, Luna. While I haven’t changed my mind on much, I have on the actions behind how Jason reacted in the opener. Carly Mitchell joins me to discuss the episode before Sunday night.

Last season on True Blood: chaos! This season on True Blood: chaos!

The Walking Dead is off for the summer, and Racialicious needs its fix of Sci-Fi fantasy well stocked with hot people and questionable plot lines, so here we are. This year our Sookie coverage will be two-headed: a recap on Monday, and a True Blood roundtable featuring deeper discussion at the end of the week. Without further ado, let’s dive in.

The recap (positively filled with SPOILERS) for True Blood 6.1 “Who Are You, Really?” is under the cut!
