Even though Kevin Alejandro’s “True Blood” character of Jesus may no longer be among the living, that does not mean that his journey on the show is anywhere near over. After all, Lafayette is still learning about some of his abilities as a medium, and based on what we are seeing out of season 5 so far, it looks like there will be plenty of opportunities where he could use some guidance from his dearly-departed boyfriend.
In speaking along these lines, Alejandro recently teased to E! News just some of what we can presumably expect for the first few weeks of the season:
“My character definitely has a role in this season, but I can’t tell you how … I’ll tell you this, the death of Jesus really has affected Lafayette in a very dramatic way, so you can expect to see how he deals with that and how it affects the other people around him. There’s a lot more depth to Lafayette that [the] audience is in store for, hope you’re ready for it!”
Lafayette’s story for season 5 is at the moment one of the show’s great mysteries — we know that Sookie and Alcide are going to be spending plenty of time together, and that Bill and Eric are going to have the Authority breathing down their necks following what went down with them over the final few weeks of season 4.
Are you predicting some big things from Lafayette this time around?
