True Blood Season Finale Spoiler with Sam Trammell

Sam Trammell Dishes on the Newer, Meaner Sam and Who Might Be Dying in the Season Finale:

Sam Trammell as True Blood's Sam MerlotteSam Trammell recently attended the Stand Up 2 Cancer telethon in Los Angeles. He answered fundraising telephones at the event in honor of his grandmother, and told TV Guide:

“Cancer is a disease that doesn’t discriminate. Everyone knows at least one person who has had the disease, or they’ve had it themselves. It’s time we stop taking it and kick this disease’s butt. The money we’re raising tonight is a good start.”

Commenting on his alter ego Sam Merlotte‘s tougher attitude this season, Trammell says fans can look forward to a more tougher, meaner Sam. He drops a spoiler for the Season Three finale as well – Sam will have a gun. His brother, Tommy Mickens (Marshall Allman), is just one person who better look out! He alluded to a season ending cliffhanger as well. We know that True Blood director Alan Ball has stated previously that someone will die in the finale – – could it be Sam Merlotte? Trammell says he thinks fan can rest easy it isn’t, but he stops just short of confirming that for sure. He does think that Eric Northman’s (Alexander Skarsgaard) fans might have something to worry about (oh no!!!!).

Wrapping up his chat with TV Guide, Trammell let everyone know just how much fun he’s had giving the normally sweet Sam Merlotte a harder edge:

“It has been so much fun to get to play angry and be mean to people. Usually Sam is just so nice and so helpful. I was getting a little sick of him being stepped on, pushed over and taken advantage of. I was glad we did the flashbacks. They gave great back story and insight into Sam and who he was before and why he might be the way he is now.”
