A new batch of posters for the upcoming fifth season of ‘True Blood’ include Sookie’s presumed-dead BFF!
True Blood has always been great at two things: incorporating puns into its advertising — the new tagline for season five is “everything is at stake” — and keeping viewers guessing about what’s next. Fans have been dying to know whether or not Tara (Rutina Wesley) survived her seemingly fatal gunshot wound since last season’s finale, and her inclusion in the show’s new collection of character posters is only making us all more curious!
All the usual suspects are there — Sookie (Anna Paquin), Eric (Alexander Skarsgard), Bill (Stephen Moyer), etc. — along with newcomer Roman (Chris Meloni) and returning favorite Russell (Denis O’hare).
So why would Tara get her own poster if she wasn’t going to survive, or at least be seen in the fifth season?
What do YOU think? Is Tara really alive? And which new (or returning) character are you most excited to see in season five? Let’s talk it out in the comments section.
