The true death is upon us. True Blood says goodbye for good this Sunday, so it’s time to make some predictions concerning what’ll go down.

First, let’s review what we know:

1) The final episode is called “Thank You,” an appropriate title for an ending.

2) The synopsis reads, “Sookie (Anna Paquin) weighs a future with and without Bill (Stephen Moyer). Eric (Alexander Skarsgård) and Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) struggle with their uncomfortable partnership with Mr. Gus (Will Yun Lee). Sam (Sam Trammell) makes a choice, while Andy (Chris Bauer) comes upon an unexpected inheritance.”

3) A trailer for season 7, episode 10 offers a couple of clips including Sookie telling who appears to be Bill that she “can’t let go.” Watch:

‘True Blood’ series finale predictions

So, what’s going to happen in the hour-long finale this Sunday, August 24?

Prediction 1: Mr. Gus will deliver a fatal blow to Sookie, who will be saved by Bill or Eric. At the end of episode 9 we saw Gus ask Eric where Sookie is so he could kill her (because heaven forbid she knows about the Hep-V cure).

Promotional material for season 7 showed Sookie crying a single tear of blood (see above), which some thought hinted at her imminent change into a vampire. If Gus tries to kill her, a vampire could be just the solution to saving her. What if Sookie drank Bill’s blood moments before Bill dies from the Hep-V infection, thus giving Sookie the opportunity to have Bill live within her?

Prediction 2: The whole gang is going to get together for a farewell to… somebody. Anna Paquin said in a recent interview that all of the lead characters get together for a scene towards the end of the finale. The trailer above supports that claim with a couple of the characters looking well-dressed at some sort of event at a home. What could the occasion be? One obvious guess is Bill’s funeral, but we don’t see anyone dressed in funeral-black in the footage above. Then again, we do see a shot of Bill in a coffin, so that’s not a good sign.

Maybe the gathering is a farewell to Sam, who we saw in episode 9 is moving to Chicago. For some reason he’s returning to town in episode 10, the trailer and synopsis confirm (… What could make him come back so quick? Bill’s funeral?!), but naturally we don’t know why.

Wacky bonus prediction: Bill dies and Sookie decides to get together with Sam (the synopsis says he “makes a choice” about something).

Prediction 3: Jason and Bridget are not going to have sex…. yet. Showrunners may be looking to give Jason some long overdue character development, and what better thing to do than show that Jason doesn’t need to have sex with every pretty woman who pays attention to him? We predict that Jason and Bridget will not have sex during the finale, but to please the viewers, Jason will be shirtless one last time.

Prediction 4: Pam and Eric kill Gus, obtain the synthesized cure, and kill Sarah. We’re making this prediction because Eric wants Sarah dead and for the cure to be out of the hands of Gus. We’re hoping there’s an epic takedown of Mr. Gus and the Yakonomo Corporation, because this is the only plot thread remaining that would yield one big, final battle.

We’d love to see Eric and Pam handle Nu Blood themselves and become rich off of it. Could they make Fangtasia the exclusive location to purchase the cure? Think of all the business they’d get at their iconic bar!

Prediction 5: Lafayette will find his happy place. James and Lafayette haven’t received enough screen time in these final episodes. It would be a huge disappointment if we did not see them share a kiss and talk about their future plans during the farewell. We think these two are going to ride off into the sunset along with other new couples like Arlene/Keith and Holly/Andy.

What do you think will happen in ‘True Blood’ season 7, episode 10?

Fox has moved the third and final Maze Runner movie to 2018.

The cast and crew were only a few days into filming The Death Cure in March when Dylan O’Brien suffered serious injuries on set, prompting the production to be put on a break so he could recover. When his recovery ended up taking longer than expected, the production was put on an indefinite hold.

Now, a plan to resume the shoot seems to be in place. Fox announced Friday The Death Cure will be hitting theaters January 12, 2018, which is nearly a year later than the original February 2017 date. The last Maze Runner movie, The Scorch Trials, opened last September.

Production on The Maze Runner: The Death Cure likely won’t resume until late this year or early next. Dylan O’Brien has already committed to another movie which is expected to shoot this summer.

Getting the rest of the cast and crew back together to shoot The Maze Runner finale may be a bit of a challenge since they may’ve committed to other projects that were supposed to be shooting after they finished The Maze Runner. However, the new Death Cure release date suggests Fox has found a time that’ll work for everyone.

Tom Cavanagh will return to The Flash in season 3 as a series regular, though which character he’ll be playing remains to be seen.

Cavanagh has had a unique acting challenge on The Flash, playing a different version of his character in each of the first two seasons — and now it looks like he’ll be doing it for a third season in a row, as EW confirms that he will be a series regular in season 3.

In season 1, Cavanagh played Eobard Thawne, aka the Reverse Flash, in Harrison Wells’ body. Thawne, after traveling back in time, killed the original Wells and took his form to expedite the development of the particle accelerator so he could return to his own time. Thawne was written out of existence in the season 1 finale, though, leaving fans curious about who Cavanagh would be playing in season 2.

This past season, Cavanagh played the Earth-2 version of Harrison Wells, nicknamed Harry, who was a significantly different character from the man we thought was Wells in season 1. However, in the season 2 finale, Harry and his daughter, Jesse, returned to Earth-2.

The Flash season 2, episode 6 recap Wells

So, who does that leave for Cavanagh to play in the third season?

My guess would be the Earth-1 version of Harrison Wells, who we only briefly met in a flashback in season 1. Why the original Wells? Because in the final moments of the season 2 finale, Barry traveled back in time and stopped Thawne from killing his mother. This means the timeline in which Thawne killed Wells and took his form no longer exists, so Earth-1 Wells would be the version left alive.

Assuming he does play the original version of the character, the one who was killed and had his identity stolen, it will be interesting to see Cavanagh inhabit yet another version of the character. While we already met Wells briefly in the flashback to his death, that was a small sample size. I look forward to seeing him differentiate another Wells from those he’s already played for entire seasons.

Are you excited to see more Tom Cavanagh on ‘The Flash’?

‘Glee’ alum Mark Salling indicted on child pornography charges

The actor is facing a lot of jail time.

4:55 pm EDT, May 27, 2016

Following an arrest in December, Glee star Mark Salling (who played Puck on the Fox series) is now facing child pornography charges.

A federal grand jury has charged the 33-year-old actor with two counts of child pornography after a search of his home turned up “thousands” of images and videos involving children, TMZ reports. He will be arraigned in early June.

Salling’s charges potentially come with big sentences: 5 to 20 years in prison for receiving child porn, and another 20 years for possessing it.

After Glee went off air last year, Salling has worked on only one project: The action movie Adi Shankar’s Gods and Secrets which is slated to hit theaters later this year.

The actor has been in trouble with the law before — he was sued for sexual battery in 2013.
