There were a number of surprises during the season 5 `premiere of “True Blood” on Sunday, with the most notable one being the revival of Tara in vampire form. As stunning as that was, though, there are even more shockers coming up — even when it comes to something as simple as friendship.
Speaking to TV Guide, Deborah Ann Woll explained that her character of Jessica could end up bonding with Tara over something that they are both going through — being a young vampire:
“Jessica is very lonely … She’s looking everywhere she can for someone to understand her and maybe there’s an opportunity there with Tara.”
Before this can really happen, though, there is still one final hurdle that must be conquered — her actually learning how to be okay with being a supernatural being. Considering Tara’s sheer anger at vampires for most of her life, we can’t imagine that she is going to be too happy with becoming what she despises, and could choose to act out violently as a result. Since it is Tara, though, we can at least say with some confidence that it will at least be pretty darn entertaining.
You can get the first full glimpse at Tara as a vampire when “True Blood” airs its next new episode Sunday night at 9:00 p.m. Eastern time.
