Almost Home (1993)
Kunal Nayyar showed up at McM Comic-Con London this past week, and he wasn't as optimistic as some of his other cast mates when it comes to The Big Bang Theory being renewed past Season 10. He claims that the cast contracts do not extend past the 2016-2017 season. And it doesn't sound like there are any current negotiations to continue, though that could change. The actor explains via Radio Times.
"Look - next season,
Ready to take a walk down memory lane and revisit this season's goriest, most fangtastic deaths? Well, we've rounded up every obliteration for you to look back on (with GIFs, of course!), so go ahead and pour one out for our fallen homies.
Name: Tara Thornton Time of Death: Season 7, Episode 1 ("Jesus Gonna Be Here") If Tara's untimely doom seems somewhat familiar, it's probably because she died back in Season 4 and turned into a vampire.
The Last Ship: “Two Sailors Walk Into a Bar…” - Sunday, August 10 at 9 Pm
Besides the bad joke of the title (“Two sailors walk into a bar… they both walk out”), this episode of The Last Ship is a surprisingly effective hour of television. Not only does it put Co Chandler and Dr. Scott in danger, it also finally focuses most of its plot on the virus that has been plaguing the world, the one we’ve been hearing a
Episode 1, “Jesus Gonna Be Here”: Tara (Rutina Wesley) dies—again.
“It’s kind of like the catalyst for everything else that’s gonna probably happen,” Wesley told EW. “I think it’s kinda cool that the last time you see me, it looks like I’m gonna win the fight, and then you cut to Lettie Mae. Me and that vampire went at it,

Episode 7.8 "Almost Home"
I’m done. I’m done. I’m done. You know, in the beginning of the episode, while Bill was pouring his unbeating heart out to Sookie, I thought to myself, I’m tired of hating Bill. It’s become too exhausting. Look at him, his voice cracking and all. Okay, I can get behind him and Sookie ending up together. Even if it’s just easier and requires less strain on my brain than remembering why I hate him.
And Then The Episode Ended The Way It Did.
I hate him again!

7.9 Love Is To Die
We’re exactly one episode away from True Blood’s denouement, and while Love Is To Die might not have provided an explosive run-up to the finale, it did produce a classic slice of soapy, Bon Temps-style melodrama. With confessions, admissions and reunions aplenty, there’s literally no one in town that hasn’t unburdened themselves to great effect this week, except maybe Jason ‘I like Pink’ Stackhouse. Not sure we’ll ever see him in quite the same way again...
The big news of the week is that Bill’s badly misplaced sense of nobility has become something of a suicide mission. Refusing to drink from the vile Ex Mrs Rev Newlin as way to permanently remove himself from Sookie’s life seems, from where we’re sitting,

On this week’s True Blood, Sookie seeks the newfound Hep-v cure for Bill, Hoyt reunites with Jessica, Tara makes peace with her mother, and Pam and Eric learn a few business tips.
Last week’s True Blood was very slow in a dull way, but “Almost Home” rectified last week’s lack of intriguing story by simultaneously wrapping up a few loose story threads, tossing in several heavily-reflective character moments, and setting up the season’s–and the series’s–final two episodes.
The best moments of the episode include Hoyt whose return to Bon Temps is filled with plenty of emotion and sweetly subtle character development. Still clueless about his past, Hoyt serves mostly as the catalyst for Jessica and Jason to reevaluate where they are in
Basically, Bill is getting worse. Eric, who had found Sarah at the end of last week’s episode, took a long hit of her blood and was cured instantly. Eric visits Sookie at the Compton house to let her know that he is going to be okay, not knowing that Bill is on his death bed. Sookie begs him for the cure for Bill, and Eric is hesitant. He promises to return tomorrow night, but Sookie

7.8 Almost Home
The end is well and truly nigh. For us anyway – as True Blood’s final season creeps ever-nearer to its conclusion, there was a distinct air of finality to the proceedings this week. Finality and more than a touch of forgiveness. It seems that with Sarah’s capture, and the confirmation of her status as vampire saviour, the spirit of cure and making things all better has somehow spread to the whole town – Eric’s as healthy as he’ll ever be, Hoyt’s a hero, Violet’s a big puddle, and things are looking up for everyone. Well, almost everyone. Bill’s Hep-v induced hallucinations have apparently gone to his head...
Yes, Vampire Bill is about to become Ex-Vampire Bill, deciding as he
Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) barely manages to restrain himself from going for the kill when Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) surrenders, begging him to kill her so that she can return as the messiah. With a clear head, Eric drinks from Sarah’s neck and is healed; his Hep-v veins disappear.
Lettie Mae Lets Tara Go
In Bon Temps, Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis), Lettie Mae (Adina Porter) and the Reverend (Gregg Daniel) take a trip on V and finally find closure with Tara (Rutina Wesley). Tara took them to her childhood home to show them a memory of her birthday, the day her father left them. The party is going well, with little Lafayette, Tara and Sookie playing peacefully, when suddenly Tara’s drunk father comes barging in. Lettie Mae
The writer of Sunday’s installment of True Blood, supervising producer Kate Barnow, took EW inside Violet’s torture dungeon, Bill’s life-or-death decision, Jason and Jessica’s sweet car conversation, and every other big moment.
Entertainment Weekly: Eric is finally healed.
Kate Barnow: This is where we find out that Eric Northman is not leaving us, and we’ve been teasing this since basically episode 10 of last season, so it is a big moment. The sequence got pared down a bit.
In this week's episode, "Almost Home," Sookie risks her life in a pointless effort to save Bill -- pointless because Bill apparently does not want to be saved -- and Hoyt comes to Jason and Jessica's rescue. Read on to find out if the eighth episode of True Blood season 7 delivers the sex, blood and insanity we have come to expect.
