'True Blood' auctioning off Sookie's bloody finale dress

Spoiler alert: If you’re a True Blood fan who loved the final scene between Sookie (Anna Paquin) and Bill (Stephen Moyer), you can now own a piece of it. EW has the exclusive first look at a few new items being added to the True Blood auction on Screenbid.com today.  READ FULL STORY

'True Blood' fans predict Bill's death. But what about Sookie's fate?

As True Blood fans prepare to say goodbye with the series finale airing Sunday (9 p.m. ET on HBO), most of them have chosen to accept Bill’s fate. According to a poll in EW‘s recap of the penultimate episode, 76 percent believe Hep-V infected Bill (Stephen Moyer) will get his wish and meet the true death before the hour is over. (By comparison, only 17 percent think Alexander Skarsgard’s healthy Eric will end the series in a pile of bloody goo. The risk for Kristin Bauer van Straten’s Pam rises to 37 percent. And as for Anna Paquin’s Sookie, whose home is presumably about to get swarmed by the Yakuza, only 25 percent expect her to bite it.)

A large factor in Bill’s choice not to drink the cure (the blood of Anna Camp’s Sarah Newlin) is his belief that Sookie (Anna Paquin) will never move on from him as long as he’s on the planet. Those poll results are more mixed: Roughly 54 percent believe Bill needs to get over himself—Sookie’s realized he’s her first love, not only love. Twenty-eight percent agree with Bill—she’d always compare every man to him. And 18 percent think the point is moot—Sookie shouldn’t have to move on because they’re meant to be together.  READ FULL STORY

Teddy Sears mastered his 'Sex'-ual education early

He’s no womanizer like his Masters of Sex character Dr. Austin Langham, but Teddy Sears has had an appreciation for the female form for some time now—as long as there’s no food involved.

Sears admits he didn’t get what all the fuss over 9 1/2 Weeks‘ iconic refrigerator scene was about: “That scene when all the foodstuffs come out? You lost me. That’s when I turned it off.” Then again, he was only 9 or 10 years old at the time.

It’s unlikely the same could be said of Langham if he had come of age during Kim Basinger’s controversy-stirring prime. Though Langham’s been mostly sidelined (and clothed) during Masters‘ second season, Sears promises his Dr. Feel-Up will be “back to his old tricks” as we head toward the finale, starting with a major episode Sunday night: “He falls head over heels and has quite a shock.” READ FULL STORY

Do you know what HASN'T happened on 'True Blood'? Take EW's quiz

On Sunday, True Blood will meet true death after seven seasons of surprises, sex, surprising sex, and more supernatural beings than most shows could even attempt to incorporate. So to look back at all the craziness that vampires, werewolves, shifters, witches, fairies, and more brought to the small town of Bon Temps, Louisiana, here’s  a quiz comparing some of the most outrageous True Blood moments. Can you tell which of the four options is a lie? READ FULL STORY

Someone on Capitol Hill made rude edits to Laverne Cox's Wikipedia page

Anyone can edit Wikipedia entries, including those working in the House of Representatives—and thanks to Ed Summers, the developer behind Twitter account @congressedits, we can now know exactly what changes these Congress staffers are making. Summers tracks the edits of users with IP addresses in the Congressional range, and Wednesday, he discovered one anonymous staffer altered transgender actress Laverne Cox’s page.

According to the A.V. ClubCox’s Wikipedia page originally read that she was a “real transgender woman” but the Wikipedia user changed it to read she is “a real man pretending to be a woman.” Calling Cox a “real man” rejects the idea that gender is formed by multiple factors and dismisses her chosen identity as a transgender woman.

Woman watches all the TV in EW's 24-Hour Emmys Binge Guide, lives

It is a massive undertaking that requires a Stevie Nicks dance party, forced insomnia, and the stamina to do a whole lot of sitting.

Dedicated fan Ellen Lloyd (@eel8) took up EW‘s challenge and livetweeted through an entire day’s worth of Emmy-nominated shows featured in the EW 24-Hour Binge Guide, with the Twitter time stamps to prove it. And Lloyd wasn’t messing around. Per the guide’s eating and drinking requests during various shows, Lloyd ate like the Dowager Countess during Downton Abbey with tea and Peppermint Milanos and drank like Scandal’s Olivia Pope (albeit in the form of a grape Popsicle in lieu of wine).

It wasn’t easy: Lloyd had to shirk off her distaste of Girls by watching the divisive “Beach House” episode, yet she managed to handle Dunham’s irresolute Brooklyn hipsters. It’s a feat to be admired, so Lloyd’s endeavor will henceforth be referred to in this post as “The Binge.” READ FULL STORY

Paul—who’s no stranger to scavenger hunts having hidden tickets to the Breaking Bad finale around town this time last year—announced the project on his Instagram, where he promised to hide all kinds of Breaking Bad memorabilia, from signed scripts to action figures and art as a way to say thank you to everyone who supported the show. As he put it, #YeahBitch.

Walter White and Jesse Pinkman are done with the meth business—maybe—and they’ve moved on to a much less dangerous venture: Running a pawn shop called Barely Legal Pawn.

In a new promo for next week’s Primetime Emmy Awards, Breaking Bad stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul play two pawn shop owners who are clueless when Veep star Julia Louis-Dreyfus comes by to pawn off her Emmy statue. “I knew I recognized you,” Paul screams once the actress introduces herself. “I love your show, Weeds!”
