Many True Blood fans are battling a bad ‘fangover’ today. The fan reactions run the full gambit from hating it to absolutely loving it. I will be always grateful to the show for the many adventures I’ve had and all the amazing friends I have made because of the show. It is over now but the friendships won’t go away.
Today is also Alexander Skarsgard’s birthday! Wishing him a fang-tastic and very happy birthday! Huge thanks to him for giving fans an amazing Eric Northman. He will be truly missed. Looking forward to his new roles!
HBO posted the video below to Youtube. A wrap up showing some of the final scenes from the series finale. We hear from some of the cast and the directors. (sadly no Alex or Pam in the video speaking they are just shown in some of the scenes) Fans are still dealing with a huge “fangover” today.

Alex and she had just agreed to say “see you tomorrow” but it was hard. Even Alex choked up a bit she said. Continue reading →
