Considering this is Alan Balls last season as showrunner I have a feeling that everything will be resolved with few loose threads.

Just hope he's not doing something silly to Bill like making him get new powers or something, wrote themselves into a corner with the age thing. Interesting to see what Warlow is, and if he can be a threat to Russell and fight over Sookie.

Well I'd think that's almost a given with the previews of future episodes.

Warlow, it sounded almost like Merlotte.

I wonder if we're going to start seeing demons.

- Bye Hoyt - good way to write out a character who served no purpose anymore
- I love Russel's real voice!
- Russel and the Reverend dancing to Teenage Dream - hilarious.

Somehow, I don't think we've seen the last of Hoyt (at least for the rest of the season).

Does anyone else think that Bill kidnapped him (I know, it's a bit of a reach).

My wife thinks Bill Compton's going to meet the true death in next week's episode. I'm not convinced, but it could be.

I was just wondering what would a true blood vampire do if they ran into a frankienstine or herbert west created undead? I mean the toxins used to preserrve them, and keep them fresh before electricity brought them back....

I highly doubt it personally, Beel Bill is Alan Ball's Mary Sue (and Paquin's husband), despite all the Bat Shit (TM) he does he always ends up getting rewarded.

How are they going to explain Paquin's pregnancy (unless they film Season 6 after she gives birth)?

Bet Marlow (or whatever his name) shows up and offs Russell, leading to yet another cliffhanger.

I thought Alan Ball was stepping down as showrunner after this season. If that is indeed the case, he may want to take his Gary Stu with him.

So, who bets the US military will be totally ineffective in fighting vampires?

Man the army gets the short end of the stick in every supernatural series. I can't think of one where they actually put up a decent fight against vampires/werewolves/demons ETC.

I think it's going to be the opposite, and vampires are going to die by the thousands, especially all the new ones that have just been made. The older/craftier vampires are going to be the only ones left next season.

They might have some sort of biological weapon (aren't Vampires allergic to some sort of Hepatitis on the show)?

Or a silver aerosol/UV flash bang grenade.

Well, technically it might not be Bill.

And where the hell did Warlow go?

Shhh.

I love how they also took 4 years of Jason's character progression and flushed it down the toilet in 5 minutes, too.

At this point, Jessica should probably go to Alaska too. If she runs fast enough, she'll catch Hoyt.

Warlow was obviously being set up as next year's mystery villain.

As for Jason's character, he's only recently come to understand that Vampires killed his parents, and had issues with vampires attacking him and threatening to turn him against his will. On top of that, he's clearly not in his right mind right now. He's seeing apparitions of his mom and dad who tell him to kill vampires after having been blasted with fairy magic - magic intended to kill/harm a vampire.

Not the best cliffhanger, but I like how Bilith is going to be one of the main villains of Season 6.

Does anyone else thing that the Vampires aren't a serious threat after seeing action hero Jason pop like fifty armed Authority goons?

I mean if someone with cop training can take out half the security guards in the building, imagine what a special forces team could do.

Jason has been shown to a be crack shot with almost supernatural reflexes before, so I don't have an issue with him popping some young vamps on security detail.
