There’s some good news coming in when it comes to the upcoming fifth season of “True Blood” — we haven’t seen the last of Rutina Wesley’s Tara yet. However, that is in no way an indication that she will be back in human form after being shot by Debbie Pelt in the season finale.
Speaking at the show’s premiere party to TV Guide, executive producer Alan Ball spilled the beans on the question as to whether or not Wesley would have a major presence on the show moving forward:
“Tara is still a part of the show … I’m sure fans have a lot of different ideas of how that could be possible, and one of those ideas is correct.”
Some of the theories currently out there in regards to the character include her becoming a vampire, becoming a ghost, being revived with vampire blood, or being saved the old-fashion way thanks to Sookie and an ambulance.
In putting Tara on one of their posters for season 5, HBO did pretty much confirm that the character does have a role to play — however, this is one secret that is not going to be completely revealed until the premiere airs June 10.
How do you see Tara staying around the show?
