2. What shocked you the most?

My answer:

I would have to be Tara becoming a vampire for the fact that Pam is her maker would have to be a little hard on her since she hated what she was created into to save her life on the request of Sookie Stackhouse and Lafayette Reynolds.

Eric showing us his sister Nora that we hadn't seen before, plus Steve being in the authority. Russell Edgington was back alive until Eric gave him the True Death.

Jason being able to show his inner cop more and Jessica having to erase Hoytharrowings memory of her and Jason. Plus to think about it I was happier to see him go on with his life without any vampires, Werewolf's and every single Supernatural being.

I loved how Bill got reborn as Lilith's form after drinking her blood.
