Recap of 'True Blood' Season 2 Finale: Deaths and Proposal

Recap of 'True Blood' Season 2 Finale: Deaths and Proposal

There were at least two cliffhangers that season 3 will have to explain when the vampire show returns on screen next summer.

"True Blood" officially ended its second season run on Sunday, September 13 with two deaths and at least two cliffhangers. The episode titled "Beyond Here Lies Nothin' " picked up right after the last episode left off. Lafayette was under Maryann spell and handed out Sookie a white gown to serve as the maid of honor.

[Spoiler Warning]. Sookie reluctantly put the gown and went to the ceremonial venue. Maryann told Sookie to repeat what she did but she was unable to. This would be the subject of discussion in the third season where Sookie discovered that she is not a mere human. Also, Maryann's vibrating trick seemed to have no effect on Sookie at all. Still, Maryann proceeded with her marriage to the Bull-head god.

The plan to get Sookie as maid of honor turned out to be a bait to lure Sam into the ceremony. Maryann's idea of marrying her god was to give a sacrifice, Sam. Bill managed to force Sam to follow him to the event and save Sookie. In the meantime, Jason and Andy joined the possessed black-eyes.

When Sookie wanted to help Sam from being sacrificed, Bill stopped her and advised her to use her gift instead. She was listening to Sam's thought which told her to ruin the wedding with her power. She did and Maryann lunged at her immediately. But before Sookie got hurt, Sam stepped in, shape-shifted into the bull god form and ripped Maryann's heart out, literally.

With the villain dead, the scene was moved to Eric playing Yahtzee with the Vampire Queen. Sophie-Ann warned Eric not to fall into Sookie like Bill did and Eric said it was not a problem. They had a deal then to have Eric "taking care" of Bill. Meanwhile, Maxine came back as herself and Hoyt dashed off to Jessica's house with roses in his hand but the vampire was feasting on a trucker.

Switch to the next day, the town was somehow back to normal and the book's writer Charlaine Harris was drinking at Merlotte's. Jason and Andy were caught up in a messy situation when Eggs approached Andy to be locked up and Jason came from nowhere shooting Eggs' head because he thought Eggs was about to kill Andy. The sheriff took the blame and told Jason to run away.

Sam, driven by his curiosity to find out about his nature, came to his adoptive parents to find out about his birth parents. The mother won't tell him but the bed-ridden father scribbled a note to him along with the words "I'm Sorry".

Back to Bill and Sookie, the waitress received a proposal from the vampire during a night out at French restaurant. Flabbergasted, Sookie could not give an answer and went to the bathroom to think. While she was weighing on the options and realizing that she wanted to say yes, Bill was kidnapped by a shadowy figure using a silver chain as weapon.

Third season of "True Blood" will be back on HBO summer 2010.

    OMG!>. I was blown by the last episode!.. Sooo upset Eggs had 2 die tho. But @ least MaryAnn was finally Defeated!.. Waiting impatiently 4 deh new Season!.. Soo many predictions racing thru mi mind its driving me CRAZY! But I think it was Eric who captured Bill.. Had 2 b

    yes there are many possibilities that can happen in the next season, especially concerning the abduction of Bill. As pointed out above there was an abducter in the books, but there are many others involved in the plot who the job could fall to, who is to say it has to be the one person in the book? I do not think that it is Eric, even though it ends with him saying "i will take care of him..personally." Who knows what that could really mean. All i know is that i hope it gets more into the eric sookie relationship, thats too big to change from the books. I will stop now so that i dont give away any spoilers.

    I've started reading the books and this is the first time the i've ever found a show to be better than a book. I don't think Lorena took Bill, why would she need to use chains to get him.

    Why do people insist on ruining the show for those who do not read the books.....???

    Sep 15, 2009

    if you read the third book bill was kidnapped by his maker, lorena, but since the show is only based on the books and many things were changed, there's no reason why this wouldnt change too...

    Sep 14, 2009

    Wow, it was a REALLY good episode! I definitely think the person kidnapping Bill is +SPOILER+ ERIC! or some other Vampire... did anyone else notice the black gloves used to protect the strangler from the silver chain? I already can't wait for season 3 to start!
