First Season Finale Recap of 'True Blood'

Season one of "" officially wrapped up on Sunday, November 23 and the episode leaves some questions hanging for the second season that is expected to air in the midseason. Titled "You'll Be the Death of Me", the episode ends the reign of Rene as the serial killer, that is on the hand of Sookie.

While Jason is in prison, finding salvation in an anti-vampire cult called Fellowship of the Sun, Sookie accepts Rene's offer to take her home. On the way, Sookie senses Rene's murderous nature and swims through his thought only to find that he is thinking about murdering her grandmother. In other places, more about Rene is revealed. Arlene finds his collection of sex films, where one of them includes Maudette, and Sam smelling his vest and coming to Sookie's rescue.

Knowing that she's in grave danger, Sookie runs to an open grave but gets caught up by Rene. Sam comes in her aid, giving Rene a good bite but gets beaten too. Sookie comes for the final showdown, raising a shovel and swings it to Rene, and later on, decapitates him. Meanwhile, Bill smells that Sookie is in danger, and comes to her rescue, only he is burnt by the sunlight just when he's about to reach her. Sam then picks him up and buries him in the grave. However, Bill somehow manages to revive and makes out with Sookie.

Some plots are left open ended, including how Jason will find his new belief and the Terry-Arlene saga. Lafayette is also missing and Sam puts a bag of money for Maryann who has been spending time with Tara. But the biggest cliffhanger of the season is when Detective Bellefleur, Tara and Sookie find a woman's body inside Bellefleur's car. There's a fat chance that Bon Temps will get a new serial killer in the second season, or the actual serial killer who is not yet killed.
