Here we are at the end of another season of HBO’s True Blood. The fourth season finale was packed full of twists and turns and many of you had something to say about the episode titled "And When I Die."

The finale seemed to do everything more than once. We said a sad goodbye to Jesus (Kevin Alejandro), a swift execution style so long to Nan (Jessica Tuck) and a "don’t let death’s door hit your a— on the way out this time" to Marnie (Fiona Shaw). And since we never know if someone is done until we see it with our own eyes -- and sometimes not even then-- Tara (Rutina Wesley) may have given her life to save Sookie’s (Anna Paquin).

Viewers are also faced with a couple returns. Russell Edgington’s grave has been dug up and he’s at large. Meanwhile the Fellowship of the Sun’s Steve Newlin (Michael McMillin) will have to send his membership card back, because he’s a fanger through and through now.

Some of you felt the show did its job in keeping you entertained and surprised. Others claimed the finale didn’t live up to their expectations. Here are the opinions that got our attention.
