'True Blood' Finale Recap: Will You Be Mine?
The Season 6 finale "Radioactive" in a nutshell:
- Bill and Jason team up to save Sookie from Warlow
- Pam flies off to find Eric
- The people of Bon Temps contemplate alliances with vampires
Body count: 1 VIP (maybe 2)
Nudity count: 4-5
New people and places: None
Best line: "I do not complete you!” — Sookie to Warlow
What's the deal with... Pam? Where is she?
So after all that — after Billith, Warlow, the Vamp Camp, Gov. Burrell and Sarah Newlin, and daywalking — ”True Blood” basically becomes “The Walking Dead.”
It’s impossible not to see the similarity between the shows after watching the final scene of a horde of hungry vampires stumbling toward the restaurant formerly known as Merlotte’s. So is this what’s in store next year for “True Blood”? Will we see Sookie and crew constantly running from Hep V-infected vampires?
In any case, a very rushed finale capped off an up-and-down season of “True Blood.” The whole Warlow storyline happened so quickly, it already feels left behind in the dust (fitting, since that’s what he became). It was wrapped up with brutal efficiency, and the show hit the reset button by jumping ahead six months to set up next season.
Here’s how it all went down (and in flames)…
Sunny days, slipping away
After Terry’s funeral, Sookie and Alcide take a walk when they happen upon a crazy-looking scene: a group of vampires frolicking in the daylight! And Jason, whom Sookie has been worrying about, is with them!
He assures her everything’s OK and that he really likes Violet. Pam — Pam! — hugs her, as does Tara.

After Sookie departs, the vamps continue to have fun in the sun. Jess and James team up to play volleyball against Jason and Violet, who’s so jealous of some flirting between Jess and Jason that she smashes the ball into the flame-haired vamp. Ouch.
On the sideline, a pensive Pam merely watches. Tara asks what’s wrong, and Pam admits she’s thinking of going after Eric. A flabbergasted Tara can’t believe it. “You guys are the worst f--king makers ever,” she says. Pam tells her to look after Willa, then flies off.
