"Oh, fuck, Eric. You’re stage two."

Tone it down pbt, ohiogirl, tgias, maggiesview - the same person obviously. OBVIOUSLY. This is fiction. A show. We know you r Eric-OBSESSED and anti-Bill, but enough is enough. you insult others and r rude. ATTN HBO. this forum should restrict people from commenting under more than 1 name, right? everyones entitled to their opinion but not when you ram it down ours, by posting under different names, then replying to your own comments, that’s ridiculous, and yes, cray cray - these e long diatribes by same person.
Ha! They think you’re all the same person. They obviously don’t think there are more then 1 intelligent, articulate person who hates Bill and hates what TB is doing.

"No" spoilers oddity

Here is what our spoiler posted in regards to questions about Eric and Sookie scenes:

"i would love to expand upon it if i knew how the writers were going to handle it. unfortunately, as I said before, I left the show before Eric’s storyline had been fleshed out completely so there are a number of possibilities for how Sookie and Eric’s scenes will go. I did not see these scenes filmed so my knowledge about these scenes comes solely from what I remember reading in the early drafts of the script (which I read over 6 months ago). All I know for sure is that Eric and Sookie will have scenes together after he and Pam deal with the Yakuza."

His knowledge of Eric and Sookie comes from drafts of early scripts that are more than SIX MONTHS old. That’s mid-January, if you’re counting. Alex hadn’t even started filming, as he was still finishing “Diary of a Teenage Girl”. 

Yeah, his knowledge of Eric’s fate is tenuous at best. If he attended all the table reads, how the hell could he not know the scripts for Eric after mid-January? Table reads usually involve scripts, no? Unless Eric’s storyline was so top-secret they left it out of the table reads altogether. In which case, he knows next to nothing about Eric’s storyline for the rest of the season. Just a rumor about Eric maybe dying, maybe becoming human. 

The “Bill and Sookie become human” storyline I can believe. It sounds like the kind of facile tripe Barnow wrote for the season six finale. It has the same stink. But I have to wonder if this person is really quite so in the know as they believe. The writers seem to have written and filmed multiple endings. He left by his own admission several weeks before filming ended. How does he know which ending they chose?

He probably doesn’t. I think he said in another posting that there were three possibilities for Eric, but he was uncertain which one the writers chose. The guy on imdb (the original rumors person) was asked about these “spoilers” from YouTube, and he said the information he was privy to had nothing whatsoever about Bill becoming human. He’s the one who said he was told stuff about the final two episodes and was so upset he considered posting it. He’s also a Bill fan. The YouTube person sounds legitimate, and they insist Bill and Sookie were always end game, but it’s possible this is one really good trolling job. There are things he knows about the Violet/Adilyn/Jessica situation, however, that sound spot on and are not things we’ve heard about in spoilers.

I’m really hoping none of this comes to pass, because it sounds positively awful. However, the fact that the YouTube poster doesn’t know what happens to either Eric or Pam is really strange.

It’s true the math doesn’t really add up, but reading his posts, there was an air of truth to it. If they’re trolling, supreme job. He says he left a few weeks before they were finished filming, but Alex finished filming well before that. Plus, they filmed out of order to accommodate his schedule. He did offer up a couple of possibilities, so he wasn’t completely ignorant, but if they filmed part of the finale before Alex left, wouldn’t he know some of it?

I’d love nothing better than to be completely wrong, that there’s no B/S endgame, no humans, no Eric dying, etc., and would be pleased as punch to have TPTB laughing their asses off at the kerfluffle. Fingers crossed.

The Bill/Sookie shippers just crawled out of the woodwork over at truetotheend.

Someone even said there should be a flash forward to Sookie and Bill being human with two beautiful children (my skin is crawling).

This is an actor

This is a television character

Learn how to tell the difference.

That’s just so wrong.

And they all have horrible grammar.

It’s just embarrassing at this point. And who needs logic when you can attack critical thinkers of not being “true fans”?

I commented on the “two beautiful children” post. I quoted that section and said that the actors already have two kids, duplicating that would be a creepy blurring of show/life. It would make it even harder for viewers to separate the characters and the actors once it’s all over. To avoid typecasting, I hoped the writers would avoid reflecting the actors’ personal lives so completely on the show.

Another Bill fan attacked me for having trouble distinguishing the actors from the characters. WTF? It’s like they can’t even follow basic logic, or parse a simple paragraph. The education gap between the Bill posters and the Eric fans is embarrassingly evident in this comments section. Poor grammar, lack of logic, no punctuation. I hate to be a grammar Nazi, but there are a lot of word crimes going on in those Bill fans’ posts. It’s like sixth graders trying to have a conversation with adults.

I didn’t bother to reply to the person who didn’t even grasp the point of my post, but another smart fan defended me (and gave a wonderful critique of how the show squandered its larger message of tolerance and the Other in favor of a trite, unbelievable love story). They even quoted Alan Ball! There are some smart people who watch this show. Apparently, though, most are not fans of the spoiled ending. (Big surprise!) 

Oh, one of those was me (I’m posting under TGIAS over there). It’s really hard to argue with someone they aren’t using the correct words or forming full sentences. I get the feeling that some of these people are the Twilight/VD crowd that just glommed onto TB  because it’s a vampire thing and they aren’t really old enough to be watching HBO.

I saw your posts. I’m Lindie7, plus “sensitive much”, etc.  I see some really great, thoughtful posts coming up that clearly outline why we don’t want B/S or the spoiler ending.  Based on some contrarian posts, I don’t foresee any real cogent discussions forthcoming.

Well, Jen, that was me. :)  And we’re also getting that we’re not being “truetotheend” telling us that we should stop bitching and moaning.   I had to comment on that one, too. I’ve noticed that the Bill lovers are making little comments on many of the posts that are horrified of that ending or who can’t stand Bill and Sookie.  We’re all relegated to the “Eric Fanatics who are crazy”. So it’s name-calling and unfair characterizations that they’re using to undermine or invalidate anyone who doesn’t support a human Bill and Sookie coupling that includes 2 children and a white picket fence.

Go tell HBO how much you hate the idea of killing Eric off and turning Bill into a human so that he and Sookie can live HEA.

I went and commented. Not about the spoilers (yet), just that I was so sick of Bill and Sookie and the endless, white-washing flashbacks. Also, that I love Eric and Sookie together.

I’ve been reading a lot of comments on the episode online. A huge chunk of the audience want Bill to die. Perhaps 50-75% of the comments I read were IN FAVOR of his death. They want Eric to survive by an even larger margin (90% or more would be mad if he dies). I can’t believe the writers are trying to give us the exact opposite!

If the spoilers are true, they are gonna have a HUGE group of pissed off fans to contend with. 

Well, CH was on set, presumably coaching BB on how to piss off the fandom.

HA-HA-HA. But seriously, this explains so much. The woman could teach entire courses in how to piss off fans and shortchange readers. True Blood writers are mere amateurs compared to Harris. They are learning at the feet of the master, though. From the spoilers, it sounds like she’s had them on the advanced course. 

Yep, we’re going to be screwed once again.  No movie, no dinner, just bam-bam thank you mam screwed.

Looks like the Billusionals have arrived, and they brought the stans with them…

Yes, they have come out of the woodwork commenting on other comments and so so happy about a Bill/Sookie end-game, being human, and having itty, bitty babies. Blech!
