Who will get the True Death in True Blood Season 6?

guestwriterbuttonSpoiler Alert!

Rumors have been running rapid lately, rumors of one of our beloved characters getting the final stake. Yes we all know by now that True Blood is filled with shocking deaths, but it still hurts to know in advance that we will be losing one of our main characters so quickly this season. With only ten short episodes we are left asking ourselves, who will it be?

Who will die and who will be safe? Well I am here to give a rundown on the pros and cons for each character (besides Sookie) and to try and foresee who may or may not die. Let’s get started!

Eric, Sookie and Bill in Season 4

10. Eric Northman- Now I know some of the main rumors going around are that our lovable Viking may be the one to get the True Death, but I want everyone to take a collective sigh of relief for I am almost a hundred percent sure that this is false. I cannot confirm anything, for this is purely my opinion, but photos have been taken recently of Alex (Eric) shooting for the final episodes of the season. Another thing for Eric is that he is a huge fan favorite plus he is still in the running for Sookie’s heart so it is doubtful he will be the one to die.

9. Bill Compton- With the new and all mighty powers he has developed since drinking the Lilith cool aid it is doubtful he will die as well. Unless they kill him and he comes back again, again, again, and again. Only time will tell what has become of Bill, or what will become of him, but it is almost certain he will not be the one to die.

8. Pamela Swynford De Beaufort- Another fan favorite, but with all the human wars and Billith business going on she may be on the hit list. Rest assured my Truebies, I doubt she is in trouble. Besides if they killed her off we would never know when to ‘get back on that pole’.

7. Jason Stackhouse- A Sookie’s biggest support system and her loving brother I do not think he will die. He could be a surprise death but fans would not be please at all and Sookie may go completely crazy, so I think he is safe…for now.

6. Sam Merlotte- With the cliffhanger leaving Luna better off dead, and Sam surviving the Authority takeover, Sam seems in the clear right now.
5. Alcide Herveaux- With his new status as pack master, and major sex symbol, doubtful he will be the one to die.

4. Jessica Hamby- The new vampire princess seems safe with Bill on her side, but she could be in major danger if she tries to protect her godly Maker.

3. Tara Thornton- Newbie vampire Tara may be in trouble. With some fan support dying for her a bit, the writers may not have a problem killing her, once and for all. It would be unlikely though since she now has a relationship with Pam and still is close to Sookie and the crew. Her death, however, would mark a surprise in the show. She has been there since the beginning and with her new “family” it may be the best time for the writers to pull the rug out from under us.

2. Arlene/Terry/Andy/Holly (The Merlottes Crew)- This group will most likely end in a death or two. Arlene, Terry, and Holly have faded from fan favor so the writers may off them, but Andy may be in the clear.

1. Lafayette Reynolds– With all the rumors running around, this is the one that seems to pop up the most and even though I, like many fans, do not want to admit it he may be the one to go. Lafayette has been a fan favorite since day one, heck his character was even written to stay on the show after his book self died, and he has developed close relationships with everyone on the show, even Eric. If he was to die it would be the biggest surprise and the biggest death in True Blood since Gran and Godric. It would hurt just about every character and it may be the shock that True Blood needs, but it still hurts to talk about. I hope I am wrong about his death, I hope it is just my number two on this list to suffer, but alas I fear the worse.

That’s my list and I’m sticking to it, until proven wrong of course. So here is to another great season of True Blood and let’s hope all of our favorite characters are safe!

    Yup. Thats what I thought. With Jesus gone, Lafayette just kind of stirred around last season talking to dead people and not much else to do. As much as it pains me, it looks like Lala’s storyline is done.From Facebook:

    “True Death” implies a vampire. Could be a human. I hate to think of any beloved characters being written off. We lost Hoyt last season. That was a blow. Much as I hate to say it, Lafayette is a strong candidate for being the one. Other than being a medium he doesn’t have much of a storyline. Of course the writers could always come up with something.

    I agree with you on this one, Laura.

    I agree there is no way it’s Eric, my money is on Tara as that would affect Sookie, Jason, Laffy, Pam and through Pam also Eric as he said she’s family now. I fee her death would have the biggest impact.

    I am somewhat incredulous at the shift in this character’s circumstances. It grieves me to think that this prediction might be true and that there was no way to revive this storyline. Lafayette was one of the favorite characters in seasons 1-3 and EASILY could be again. We know that anything can happen in BonTemps.

    Wow. don’t know what to say.

    I hope it’s not Lafayette and I agree with what mbb says.

    Question: was is said there will be a “true death” or someone will die? If “true death” that would signify a vampire unless TB is just messing with us :)

    Very good list and reasons not to see or see one of our favorites on TB gone. I personally think it will be one of the Merlottes crew; Arlene, Terry or Holly and Holly should not count in that mix she’s hardly been around. Arlene is my guess.

    I just don’t think it will be LA-LA – LA LA is the comic relief and he is very back ground & second story line to the show. Although it would be a sad loss, I don’t think it will be a OMG loss. I feel like the person who is going to die is a character that has more of an impact on someone or a story line on the show.

    Not safe: Pam, Tara, Arlene and Jason.

    I put Arlene because even though she doesn’t have a major story line, she still manages to get lines and face time and her death would impact more people. (more so then Laf)

    I think “True Death” is meant to imply that the person will be officially dead and gone, because you could argue someone “dies” means they get turned into a vampire. I think it’s meant to be cagey because it could really be anyone.

    As long as it’s not Eric or Pam or Jessica. In that order of importance.
