I’ve been on vacation — even from vamp blogging — but am back and am getting ready for the season 4 finale of TRUE BLOOD this Sunday. Here’s the official description of the finale from HBO:

SUNDAY, SEPT. 11 “And When I Die” (Season Finale)
It’s Samhain, Wicca’s greatest holy day, and spirits of the dead surface in Bon Temps, giving Sookie valuable allies to combat Marnie’s newest incarnation. Lafayette’s latest medium encounter imperils his relationship with Jesus; Jason finds confession good for the soul, but not the body; Alcide makes a heartfelt appeal to the woman he loves; Terry receives an unexpected visitor at Merlotte’s; Sam and Luna  envision a storybook ending, for once; Nan wears out her welcome with Bill and Eric. Debbie confronts Sookie and Tara with deadly consequences, and the denizens of Bon Temps brace for a new crisis with a familiar face.

If you don’t want to read any spoilers, stop now!

Michael Ausiello, editor of TVLine.com, says “By the end of the hour, the show will be down at least one series regular.”

TV Guide Magazine, in its Aug 29-Sept. 11 edition says Sookie “finally chooses between her vamp lovers when the war against Marnie the witch gets bloody deadly.”

TV Guide also says not everyone survives Halloween clash between vampires and witches in the fourth-season finale:

“There is a body count by the end,” says creator Alan Ball. “It’s more than one death – people we know and love – and it’s pretty shocking.” Alan also says that Antonia is the toughest foe that Bill, Eric, Pam and Jessica have ever fought; that Sookie’s decision choosing between Eric and Bill is her toughest decision she’s ever had to make and two major past characters return. (Says Alan, “One is beloved, the other despised. One reveal is terrifying, and one is emotional and powerful.”) And finally, Alan says, “A lot of things that seemed like they were happening outside of the witch story find their way into it. You’re going to think things are finished when they are not.”

So, who does Sookie choose? Who dies? Who are the two past major characters who return?

Is Russell Edgington — the King — coming back? That would seem a logical answer. But The Hollywood Reporter says an HBO spokesperson says actor Denis O’Hare doesn’t appear this season.

Do we lose Lafayette, who in the Charlaine Harris series dies in the first book? What about Tara?

Several websites, including WetPaint.com, have reported that in the last show of season 4 we’ll meet Patrick Devins, 35 to 45, tough, and ruggedly attractive, he served in the military with Terry, and they share a serious history: Terry saved Patrick’s life twice. Does he return the life-saving favor(s)? Do we get a reprise of Rene?

This has been a really good season. Am bummed it’s going to be over so quickly though. It also marks the end of summer … and we have to wait another year for more True Blood …. and books and stuff!

I can’t wait to see who dies and who is coming back!

I will definitely be tuning in on Sunday. Thanks for the teaser, Diana.

I have to confess to being a faithful True Blood viewer in spite of the fact that I haven’t enjoyed the show very much since the end of the first season. I always wished they had followed the books closer and stuck with Charlaine’s story. I might have enjoyed the show more if I hadn’t read the books first. That is the reason I’m watching Game of Thrones and not reading the books.

Yup — Sunday can’t come soon enough! But I like the weirdness of the series vs the books. It doesn’t bother me, especially since I think the book series has lost a lot of steam toward the end.

Now GOT — that does stick faithfully to the books — at least in the first series and from what I’m told it will in season No. 2. After that — we don’t know because the books get longer and longer so HBO might have to condense somehow. But the books are definitely worth checking out!
