Which True Blood characters won’t make it to the end of the season?

 

With only 2 episodes left in season 4 it’s time to start speculation of who will not make it to the end of the last episode.

From the latest promo videos we’ve learned that the fans are in for a very wild ride and a spectacular season finale. But who will fall of the train? Or better: Who will be pushed off?

Alan Ball revealed at Comic Con that: “We will lose a handful of major characters towards the end of the season, unfortunately.”

 

We’ve made a list of possible candidates who might increase this season’s body count in the final 2 episodes. Who do you think will not make it?

1. Marnie
2. Antonia (again)
3. Holly
4. Jesus
5. Wiccans Roy, Casey, Luellen & Co
6. Vampire sheriffs Kirsch and Duprez
7. Marcus
8. Luna
9. Debbie
10. Nan

 

Or will it be Eric and Bill afterall burning at the stake?

    As long as it isn’t Eric, Sookie, Pam or Ginger, then I’m still gonna watch season 5! :)

      You know, in the middle of book 4 Ginger dies, but I don’t think she will do it here. She’s a fun character.

    Good list, Shad. All are possible candidates but I hope they keep Nan around – she’s so snarky.

      I would love for Nan to stick around, especially because I think is season 5 we wil learn more about the authority. Or she dies and Bill takes over her job.

    What about Hoyt? His story has played out. Tara’s girlfriend is bound to show again, and will probably die at some point.

    Definitely a few Wiccans, like Roy. Probably Marnie – I think Antonia, being already dead, might just have a nice happy sendoff like Mavis got. I am also thinking Debbie, Marcus, and, sadly, Jesus because Laffy is just too happy right now. Nan needs to stay!

    I think you are spot on with your list. I don’t want to lose Jesus, Holly or Luna. As for Nan … I think it’s inevitable, but she and Bill have such a great adversarial relationship. If she goes, who will Bill butt verbal heads with? It might appear that Eric and/or Bill will die the true death, but he/they will be back next season No worries there.

    Since the question is about major characters on the show, I think that it could be Marnie or Jesus, the others are not major characters.

    Definitely, Marnie-Antonia will not survive this season. Neither will Debbie I think.
    But Eric and Bill should certainly stay.

    Debbie, Nan, Marcus, Tara, Martonia, some Wiccans, Jesus, (hopefully Bill – but probably not gonna happen unless there is a miracle that brings him back :)) Hoyt definitely should go now that he’s acting so mean, but he’ll probably be around to create more tension next season. Is that creepy doll finally gone – that is what needs to be burned at the stake, not Eric (and Bill)?

    I´m thinking that Eric will die. :-( I will not see the show ever again if Eric is not in it, but it kind of make sense to me. They´ve said that sookie will have to choose, and we´ve seen eric and bill burning. So my guess is that sookie is gonna choose bill (hate her) and eric will die. She will feel so guilty and sad, and if we remember sookie´s conversation with Russel, who believed that we could revive talbot with sookie´s blood. She´s gonna spend the all season 5 trying to bring Eric to life. And we are gonna see Eric (alexander) in flashback when they show as how Pam turned into a vampire and in sookie´s dreams. She will not be with Bill because of the guilt. Am I crazy? kind of hoping that…. :-(

      That’s just… sorry to say it, but it’s possible. I hope you’re wrong, just like you do. If Eric dies… I don’t think that could happen.

    I’m worried that Pam will be killed off. The flashback next season could be Eric thinking back on the time Pam were made.

      I actually think it could as well be the other way round. Pam thinking back of how Eric turned her because he’s dead. I have been
      thinking since Stephen’s mention of a big upset for season 5 that they are going to kill Eric. I hope not he’s a good character to have around but who knows at this point.

    Well the actors with billings portraying the core characters — Bill, Sookie, Jason, Tara, and Sam have all signed seven year contracts. This year Alex Skarsgaard moved into this group as well, presumably receiving a longer contract,too. Hence these should all be returning. Since AB somewhere along the line said that at least a couple of beloved characters would die, my ‘beloved’ candidates are:
    Hoyt
    Jessica
    Pam
    Jesus

    Others:
    Marnie
    Holly

    Nan could be one, but I think her current AVL/Authority role is too nationally prominent and complicated to just get rid of her — unless they have someone waiting in the wings.

    I don’t think they will kill Debbie this season. She has become very popular, and I think there is a lot more to come with her story arc.

      Correct me if I’m wrong but having a 7 year contract doesn’t mean they can’t kill your character on the show. It just means the actors can’t quit before the end of their term.

    First of all, sorry for my lousy english, I’m not an english speaking person. Second: Debbie has to die, like she does at the end of book 4, and her dead will open the way to new plots, like the revenge of her family, specially the sister (more problems to Sook), and other situations with Alcide that ultimately could bring Quinn to the trama, that’s why I also think that Marcus will die. Marnie, of course, like in the book, and also because she doesn’t have any other purpose in the story. Some of the Wiccans, I hope. About Holly and Jesus, I don´t know. Holly is still a character in the books, and Jesus is an invention of AB. I don’t think that Holly will die, but I’m not sure about Jesus, and have my doubts about Lafayette situation, because I think he could save everybody, and pay the price. I hope to be wrong because I love that bitch. I don’t care about the sheriffs, and really don’t think that Luna could die, afterall, Sam already lost Tommy, and that was just enough. I think Nan will survive, but only because she is gonna stay out of the war situation and will wait the results, from the distance. Maybe I’m wrong, but the only thing I hope is that Eric, Jason, Pam, Jessica, and yes, also Bill, came out of this alive and well.

    Well, it was Debbie who didn’t make it in the book. And also, if I remember well Marnie. We’re talking about the Alan Ball’s version though, so it could be anye semi-major character. I personally (without betting on it) would go for Luna, because she is one of the victims from next book, so it is a good end for this one. After all, every season in the final episode they feed us with a good cliffhanger for the next one. And also points 5 and 6 from the above seem quite appropriate for creating a good bloody 11th episode.

      Sorry, maybe my memory is playing me one, but I kind of remember that Luna, the character in the books not in the TV show, is a were-bat that helps Sookie to escape from the fellowship of the sun in book 2. Am I wrong? I don’t remember all the names of the victims of the 5th book, but I think that Luna wasn’t there either. However, it’s a very good idea. I think that her dead could be the cliffhanger at the end of this season and the beginning of some of the possible plots in season 5. I like Luna, but I kind of like this theory too. Poor Sam…

        You may be right that the name wasn’t Luna. I am not sure at all about it. But I am sure that there was a young female shapeshifter who was one of the victims. She was only mentioned, wasn’t part of a storyline or anything. Since they announced Luna for the TV series I have always thought that they are referencing to this character and in season 5 will come the end of her. But I must be very wrong too. Sam himself was shot in book 5 of course and that I am certain about. But it would be too obvious if they shoot him this season and leave it for next year to show that he is alive. Noone would buy it. But in any case, I think the most intriguing death at the end of this season has to do with shapeshifters if they are the central storyline into the next book. After all, no matter how much new storylines they put and keep into the TV series, the mane line from each book always stays for the respective season.

    I think they’ll show one major character appear to die (true death)…probably Eric but we’ll find out immediately that he is undead in season 5

      if that happens, we better have a “he’s probably not really dead” at the end of the finale or we might not last until next season

    I have a bad feeling that one of the characters that die could be Terry Bellefleur. My other thoughts on who might die – I tend to agree with the majority of people on here: marnie/antonia, Tara’s GF. Maybe Jessica, Hoyt. Like to see Hoyt’s mamma get it. Also, Marcus and Debbie Pelt.

    I really don’t think they would ever kill off Eric and Bill.

    My predictions on who will die: Marnie/Antonia, Marcus, Debbie and the wiccans & vampire sherrifs.

    Only Holly and Debbie stay alive. Debbie will stick around to be the villain in season 5 and Holly has some brains, the rest will all die.

    First off Debbie must DIE!!! I really dislike everything about her. That way Sookie and Alcide can hook up in Season 5. We all know that Sookie has to experience what life would be like with a breather before she can decide what she truly wants. She will eventually choose Eric but you have to remember that she would be giving up any chance of having a normal life and having kids by being with him. Plus I would love to see Sookie as a leather wearing pack momma! :)

    As for the rest of the dead, it should be Marcus, Tara, Marne, some witches we don’t care about and the Vamp sheriffs.

    All I know is that Jason and my baby vamp Jessie better make it…

    Also, I don’t think Bill & Eric are really burning at a stake, I am hoping it is a vision or a dream.

    1. Marnie
    2. Hoyt – there is nowhere left to go with this character
    3. Eric – I don’t know what more the writers could have done to diminish interest in the character this season, especially for fans of the books
    4. Jesus – possibly

    Antonia is already dead – I believe Bill, with Lafayette’s help, will come to some understanding with Antonia that will allow her to move on.
