When the best thing about an episode of television, let alone an episode of television that happens to be a series finale, is the song that plays over the end credits, that’s probably not a good thing. Actually, it’s DEFINITELY not a good thing, because it happened in the last-ever episode of True Blood, “Thank You,” which bowed out with the Led Zeppelin song of the same name. There was very little violence, no nudity, and a laughable lack of dramatic tension (though I appreciate the unintentional implication that Bill and Sookie are to blame for everything that’s gone wrong in Bon Temps. Once he’s dead — I’m disappointed that the Hep-V didn’t turn him into human so when Sookie stakes him, he’d bleed out like a mortal — everything is dandy). “Thank You” was the worst kind of finale; it was boring.
Luckily, the Internet stepped in and ripped it apart, a la Dexter. Here are our favorite reactions.
I was expecting Sookie’s husband to turn around and end the show like this, with an evil laugh.
