Ausiello Drops True Blood Death Spoiler
Question: Any scoop you can give us on Pam and Tara’s love/hate relationship on True Blood?
Ausiello: Oh, c’mon. Even though the language they use is often hateful, you know their relationship is really more of a love/love sort.
And in this week’s episode, Tara makes a biiig sacrifice that proves it yet again.

The buzz for quite some time has been that a featured cast member of True Blood will make his or her exit about midway through season 6. There have not been any reliable clues but insiders like Ausiello already know and I'm going to make like Sherlock Holmes and use his clue(s) and the rather detailed HBO synopses for the next 3 True Blood episodes to put this puzzle together. Have nothing to lose, right?
Firstly, prior to Rutina Wesley's character Tara Thornton, being shot in the head by jumping in front of a bullet meant for Sookie, the actress commented more than once that there were so few 'humans' on True Blood that she was glad to be one of them.
As y'all know, "Tara" was turned by Pam at Sookie and Lafayette's request, but still, the character remains very much a secondary character. Vampire Tara is still Tara, a character that much like in the Sookie Stackhouse book series, has never really been fleshed out, despite attempts to do so.
Now. Scroll up this page to read them in context or just read the excerpts I'll pull down:
First, the Ausiello spoiler for this week's episode 6.05 (which is exactly halfway through season 6):
- And in this week’s episode, Tara makes a biiig sacrifice (for Pam) - Episode 6.05 - 'F**k the Pain Away'
- Eric, Pam, Nora, Jason and Jessica are in danger. - Episode 6.06 - 'Don't You Feel Me' But Tara is not in danger because Tara is dead.
- A tragedy close to home forces Sam to ignore the warnings of Alcide and return to Bon Temps. - Episode 6.07 - 'The Funeral' Tara is dead and Sam returns for her funeral.
That's about as close to spelling it out as it could be--unless it is a massive foiler.
UPDATE 7.11.13! Character death:
