“True Blood” has certainly established a tradition for itself of having some shocking ends to some of their seasons, and it looks like season 5 is going to be no different — despite it being a season that has already crammed in its own fair share of surprises.
Speaking in a new interview interview with Rolling Stone, Sam Trammell (Sam) specifically teased that the ending this time around was something he didn’t even see coming — and this is with him spending a generous amount of time on the show’s set:
“In all honesty, I think we have the best cliffhanger of any season we’ve ever had. There’s something that happens in this last episode that’s really unexpected. I was very surprised when I read it, and it’s exciting and surprising and fun, and I think people are gonna dig it. I think the writers, as well as write great dialogue and great characters, always want to surprise the audience, and they’re definitely going to do that with this.”
In another part of the interview, Sam seems to tease that he will be around again to see the light of day next season, which is great news for those of you who want a little bit more of Merlotte’s in your life. As for his girlfriend Luna and some of the other characters, that much is still to be seen — though we know that this finale has been described as a “bloodbath” and there are going to be a good many people who do not end up making it out of here alive.
