You never forget your first; what an incredible introduction this was to the Wonderful World of Exploding Vampires. The image of Sookie covered in Longshadow's blood-vomit is one I'll hold in my heart forever.
Season 2, Episode 12
"Remember the scene where that maenad was impaled by that bull's horn, but then the bull turned out to be the naked guy who owns the bar?" Yep, that's a sentence you'd only hear out of a True Blood fan's mouth (albeit an uninformed one).
Season 3, Episode 8
To say that Talbot was "screwed over" by Eric would be an understatement. Still, if you have to die screaming, doing so mid-sex with Mr. Northman is probably not the worst way.
Season 3, Episode 9
You might not remember his name, but you'll never forget the sight of TBBN anchor Jerry's spine being ripped from his body by Russell Edgington on live TV. "Now, time for the weather. Tiffany?"
Season 4, Episode 12
In an incredible moment of badassery, Sookie avenged Tara's (first) death by blowing Debbie's brains out all over Gran’s kitchen floor. To be fair, though, Sookie warned her back in Season 3: "Next time, I won't miss."
Season 5, Episode 12
One of the last surviving members of the Authority (somehow), Rosalyn eventually met her demise when Sam shifted into a fly, flew into her mouth, then shifted back. It was enough to make anyone's head explode.
Season 5, Episode 12
Bill may have only been dead for a moment, before being revived as Billith, but what a moment it was! I now live in constant fear of all puddles, knowing there could be a bloody, naked vampire god just waiting to rise up and eat me.
Governor Truman Burrell
Season 6, Episode 6
Billith was a pretty hit-or-miss character, but it was worth putting up with all of his nonsense during Season 6 just to see him decapitate that smug-ass governor. Head's up!
Season 6, Episode 7
Long before Bill and Eric were stricken with the virus, Nora was the first to succumb to Hep-V's deadly grip. She melted, we melted.
Season 6, Episode 9
Everybody knows this show's real love story was between Jason and his undead reverend pal, so it's only fitting that Steve's final words ("I love you Jason Stackhouse!") echoed their timeless romance.
