How Will it End For Lettie Mae Thornton and Her Daughter:
In True Blood Season 6, many fans became concerned when Tara’s (Rutina Wesley) mother, Lettie Mae Thornton gave up her blood to nourish the daughter she had always neglected. They thought it might be a trap, that Lettie Mae was a carrier of Hepatitis V, a disease that causes no ill effect to humans, but is devastating to vampires. HBO quickly assured their audience that Lettie Mae was actually just trying to make up for lost time towards a daughter she had rejected both when she was growing up, and then again when she was turned into a vampire.
Well, now it seems that this storyline will be a juicy one in Season 7, since it has been confirmed that Adina Porter (the actor who plays Lettie Mae) has been bumped up to series regular on True Blood.
Porter now joins Bailey Noble (Adilyn Bellefleur), Amelia Rose Blaire (Willa Burrell), Luke Grimes (James) and Karolina Wydra (Violet) as newly announced series regulars.
So, how do you think the relationship between the religiously devout Lettie Mae and the baby vamp Tara will pan out in Season 7? Let us know in the comments below!
