the not so good: why on Earth did they make such a big spectacle and devote almost an entire episode to Terry's funeral?...he was a fringe character at best...I hope this is not the 'major' character death they've been teasing all season as they sure treated it like such...even his flashbacks didn't really do much for me, although the Lafayette fry shake flashback was pretty funny
lastly thank goodness Sarah Newlin lives!...I was actually thinking throughout that entire scene that Sarah was going to get the gun from Jason and shoot (kill) him...I guess I have this 'major' character death on my mind too much...lastly I don't know what to make of that final scene with Eric flying away...is that supposed to represent his death or him going away forever?...Pam's reaction just seemed a bit over the top for something innocent like him flying away
overall a good episode which felt like a season finale...don't know what's left for next week but hopefully it's something good
Yes Terry's death is e "major" death that has been hyped. The reason it is major is because it is what got most of the major characters back in the same place and interacting with each other because the current show runner wants the show to focus more on Bon Temps like the first couple of seasons.
I think(and this could be way off because it was a weird scene) Eric realized/new some True Blood had been shipped out and is going to try and find/destroy/warn vamps about it.
Also I agree this had a season finale feel so maybe they are following the GoT model by having the "major" event(s) happen the next to the last episode and wrap it all up the final episode.
