True Blood Season 5 Spoiler Alert! Update on Tara Thornton

Spoiler Alert! Will Tara Be Back for Season 5 of  True Blood?

Rutina Wesley HBO promoAccording to Rutina Wesley in a Q & A with TVLine, the answer is a resounding yes.  Her contract has been renewed for Season 5.  But what exactly does that mean on True Blood?  Does she survive having the back of her head blown off?  Does she become a vampire?  A zombie?  A ghost? Who the heck knows?  Not even the actress herself:

“Everything’s up in the air because half of my head is missing. [Laughs] I know Alan has big plans for me next season. But has he shared those plans with me? Not really.”

Although, she would prefer not to become a vampire.  She enjoys being one of the only humans left on the show, and besides — it would be a pain to have to learn how to talk with fangs in your mouth!  Oh, and another thing… don’t call Tara a victim.  Wesley says she saw her character more as a survivor this season, just trying to get through it all.  She enjoyed filming the shooting scene, and she really enjoyed getting to play “sassy Tara” again:

“I really liked the humor in Tara that we got towards the end. It felt like Season 1 Tara with the one-liners. It was fun getting back to the sassy Tara. I just like to see her be strong and stable and not necessarily crying and whining.”

So, what’s the bottom line, Truebies?  You will be seeing Tara on the show in Season 5.  As exactly what, that remains to be seen!  What’s your theory?  Are you glad she’s coming back, or were you glad to see her go?

  • omg ,thank god tara is back….she makes that show worth watching with her an sookie being besties ……if she is a vampire i can live with that ,cause she is gonna be the one thing she despise most an thats another  hoop too jump through …i love tara 

  • IM SO GLAD THERE WILL BE A SEASON 5 thank god for boring weeks becoming a past

    MORE ERIC and BILL yeHA cant wait I love ERIC he’s HOT HOT HOT

  • I really want to see sookie and eric get together and stay together longer I would love bill to continue to have feelings he cant control and take sookie from eric somewhere far away and watch eric grieve for her madly I dont want sookie to get with the wolf its to twilight, I want pam to save sookie and for eric to love her again and I would love to be a a part of the show even if it’s only 5 min of fun in my life I love all the actors what a good job in finding them all there all supposed to be on the show all you need is a dark vixen with big ANGEL WINGS tatoo’d on her back LOL maybe someone like me aschultz2010@live.com.au

  • i hope tara is turned into a vampire or healed. i dont want her as a ghost becuase i think itll make Lafayette go nuts looseing his cousin and lover both. plus sooki will go nuts loosing tara. she has to live. it be cool if she was a vampire and stayed in the cubby hole so that during the day she could wake up and protect sooki if needed. yes shed get burnt but not imeditaly she could survive it. rmember season 1? bill walked from his house to the cemetary during the day. he lived. so maybe if tara never lft the house during the day it be ok to.i just wan tara back she was such a cool charecter. yeah she had her issues but i loved her charecter

  • Only two can hear Sookie when she is upset, and one or both will heal Tara.  Also, I think Pelt’s body and car will be handled by those two or one.

    • Russell drank Sookie’s blood too before they buried him in the concrete that he is now out of. He will be able to feel too right? Maybe Russell will turn Tara in order to control Sookie…

  • The Tara story was going very flat and even Ms Wesley knew it. Season 1 Tara was excellent and we saw her again in the last episode of season 4. If she is to be brought back, she needs to be feisty again. Her story was getting so droll we here were like Please kill her Pam or Please, let her get shot. It’s not the actresses fault – she was clearly sick of that too. IMHO I think she’ll be a ghost to LaLa’s medium. No way she could be changed since she was killed to quick. Need a tiny spark of life to be turned. Anyway. Ghost helping Laffy is my guess and that should be good since she should be in good spirits.

  • I’ll bet that Bill’s busy cleaning up the mess at his house, and Eric races over to Sookie’s. For the best, since Sookie did indeed murder in cold blood, when she could’ve held Debs. Pam will have to turn Tara, since she can’t live with the back of her head blown off, hello, people! Eric will forgive Pam, if she finally becomes a Maker, and turns Tara, since Eric knows Sookie can’t bear to lose anymore friends (Cold Grey Light of Dawn). Tara will eventually understand Pam, perhaps even become lovers, because those two are definitely a match made in hell. Eric will bury Deb’s body, and never tell anyone where, along with the cleanup. Sookie will have trouble looking Alcide in the eye, ergo – no possible relationship between them. Eric IS the only one with the strength to save Sookie from Russell, and Sookie knows it – and willingly strengthens their blood bond, because there’s nothing else they can do, other than turn her, too,, too keep her out of Russell’s reach. 

    That’s my best guess, off the top of my head.

  • Thank goodness that Tara will be back next season.  I was crushed when I saw the finale. I really love the relationship that Tara & Sookie have.  They are like two sisters in the womb, torn apart by birth, and each having to exist through their own type of hell, surviving with the love that they carry for each other.  I don’t know if that make sence to anyone reading this, but it does to me…  Tara and Sookie need each other.  I really hope Tara is human.

    I really want Tara to be back next season and alive. TV needs more characters like her and Sookie needs to keep her only real female friend. Tara has fought so much for her own survival that it’s really strange if she’s going to be killed off just like that. Also, it would suck just as bad if she was a ghost for a few episodes and then gone.
