What characters have had the most, and how?
A slow clap for Sookie.
What exactly should our expectations have been for the second-to-last episode of True Blood?
Only two more episodes left.
Bill and Sookie.
Only four more episodes left.
Lafayette finally gets some.
So many emotional ups and downs, so little time left.
Nobody likes a mopey Lafayette.
No discussion of this episode should start with anything other than that cold open.
This season premiere was very good and very dark.
Like a hobbled yet determined Kerri Strug, season six just stuck the landing.
From concept to execution, "Life Matters" was very very very good.
This episode has one truly, incredibly, instant classic scene.
True Blood does the best vampire deaths.
This might have been one of the strongest episodes of the past few years.
F--- the pain away, everyone.
Please enjoy this GIF of Jason Stackhouse doing pull-ups.
Season six is doing a lot right so far.
"The Sun" was a surprisingly good and thoughtful episode.
Season six picks up moments after season five's insane cliffhanger.
Bloodbath doesn't seem fitting enough a term for this unusually high-body-count season finale.
In this season's penultimate episode, we finally got an intervention on behalf of the U.S. government.
Lots going on this week, although it was sorely lacking in butt-revealing karate.
We're getting closer and closer to the end of the season, so we're seeing some of the story lines get nicely wrapped up.
It's good that we're moving away from the whole Lillith thing.
Well, this episode was certainly action-packed, we'll say that much for it.
This was a banner week for celebrity guest stars on True Blood.
Religious fanatics versus sexy, ineffectual ideologues? Please keep your Sorkin peanut butter out of our Ball chocolate, HBO.
Every week we swear that we're going to stop looking for an ordered universe within True Blood, and just relax and enjoy the sex gore.
Many jokes were made at the expense of iPhones, texting, and Facebook.
True Blood's writers are really bringing it this season, if only in terms of pure Bonkers Quotient.
Sometimes a show goes so off the rails that being off the rails becomes the point. Thus, True Blood, season five.
Lots of death and loose ends.
The witches continue kicking ass.
It's mystical, epic laser tag time!
Not a great move for a vampire.
NachoFace Pam! Deep conversations! Eric vs. Bill! Shifter Sex!
Eric the innocent gets further into Sookie's heart, and mouth, than ever before.
Though, a naked Eric Northman's not one of them.
Or how to take care of an amnesiac vampire.
"Why do you smell so good?"
Season four begins and we jump twelve months forward.
"Love?! You don't get to use that word."
"Well, that is a kick in the pants."
Sookie is a fairy. Or one of the "old people." Lame.
Franklin returns and Russell debuts on the nightly news.
Reunited, but it don't feel so good.
Sookie, agent of light.
Things get even bloodier.
Our favorite episode so far!
If you thought 'True Blood' took last week off to take stock and start pulling back from this season's turn for the bizarrely kinky, you thought wrong.
Sex with vampires gets bizarre.
And it's Denis O’Hare! And he's awesome.
Good god, that was fun.
A plot-packed finale wraps up the season, but leaves us in suspense.
"I love watching two men together," she says. And then they play Yahtzee.
So to speak.
Everything comes to a peak.
Just when Godric’s Christian virtues look to be ushering in a new era, a terrorist attack provides a cliffhanger that jeopardizes the lives of, oh, most of the cast.
Is it just us, or is the show firing off its plot points so quickly that it’s failing to appreciate itself?
Huge plot advances — which is great, because the orgies are getting sort of boring.
Jason gets a sponge bath!
“Maybe Jesus was the first vampire. He rose from the dead. And told people, hey, drink my blood, it’ll give you special powers.”
The funniest — and goriest — episode this season.
A high-stakes game of capture the flag!
Another season, another murder mystery!
Anyone who has seen the episode will know who we mean.
“It might be fun to do the last season over again.”
That's it? For the best character on the show?
We may never have closure.
Spoiler alert, obviously.
Denis O’Hare, Michael McMillian, and James Frain help us put a stake in the series’ heart.
A lot can happen in two years.
Do you just know these past and current denizens of Bon Temps, or do you really, really know them?

The story actually moves in an interesting direction!
