The cliff-hanger at the end of season 6 was one of the most overt threats that True Blood has ever put on screen. If you were worried that the show’s producers would take their time in finding a resolution to this situation then rest assured you will not be disappointed. In something of a twist to the shows usual production the violence had become hyper stylised and it works to show the extreme nature of the battle being thought.
The battle between the Hep-V vampires and the normal Vampires centres around the human population and as you read into the situation you get the idea of one side being conservationists and the other looking to destroy the world in the name of gain. The sense of an endgame is ever present through the episode and you get the feeling it will run through the whole season.
The whole episode covers only one night and the following morning but as the fallout begins and you get to spend a little time with each of the main characters. The episode feels like a reintroduction to the world of Ben Temp and the changes that have happened in the 180 odd days since the end of the test facility and the mixer at the old Merlotte Bar (now called BelFleur’s). It feels a little slow in places but sets up what is looking to be a killer last season.
