TRUE BLOOD Postmortem: "It's a Big Relief Now That It's Over," Says Latest Casualty
[Warning: This story contains major spoilers from Sunday's episode of TRUE BLOOD. Read at your own risk!]

After Terry (Todd Lowe) contracted an old Marine buddy to kill him, it should've come as no surprise that the Merlotte's chef did, in fact, meet his maker on Sunday's True Blood. But what was heartbreaking was that his friends and wife Arlene (Carrie Preston), having deduced something was awry, enlisted a vampire to glamour all the pain away, be it his PTSD from the war or his memories of Patrick (Scott Foley), whom he had to kill to save his own life.

For once, Terry was happy. But it was short-lived since, along with his painful memories being erased were those of planning his own suicide. His Marine friend came through, killing Terry outside of Merlotte's, with the gentle giant giving one last farewell to his wife Arlene before dying.

  1. Another trailer released at Comic Con was by The CW Seed for Season 3 of "Husbands" (coming in August). Looks amazingly funny (as always!). Number 7 on this list:

    Also, on the subject of trailers, Brit Soap, "Hollyoaks" just released their rather thrilling and dynamic "Six Weeks of Summer" trailer. This soap's really on fire right now (imho), and even if you don't watch, you might enjoy the trailer!
