In season four’s most shocking finale moment, major player Tara was seemingly killed off by a bullet that left her brain tissue decorating Sookie’s kitchen. Or was she? This is True Blood after all, so chances are this isn’t the last we’ll see of her. We’ve seen a bunch of people be healed by vampire blood, but is that magical elixir really powerful enough to cure a gaping hole in the head? Fan speculation has been rife with talk of one of the vampires turning Tara into one of them. If that’s the case, then who is the likely candidate as maker? Bill saved her life in the cemetary, but he already has Jessica to deal with. Eric’s relationship with Pam is currently on the rocks, so maybe he’d like a substitute snarky lady vamp sidekick. On the other hand, he attacked Tara and once kept Lafayette prisoner in his filthy basement, so maybe Tara wouldn’t be too thrilled to be his progeny. And then there’s Pam, who Eric has suggested should sire a baby vamp of her own, but we know she and Tara hate each other’s guts.
Or perhaps Tara will return as a ghost, and haunt Lafayette like a ghetto-fabulous Obi Wan Kenobi? Or maybe the True Blood writers have been watching too much Walking Dead, and she’ll come back as a zombie? Here’s where you can post your theories on the exact nature of Tara’s demise.
