Recently an article was posted on TV Line discussing the possibility of a True Blood season 6 death. This has set off a storm of buzz and worry across the fandom. Here is what was written:
Question: There are rumors that True Blood is going to kill off the gorgeous and sexy Eric Northam! Please tell me this isn’t true. He is one of the main reasons I watch. —Kelly
Ausiello: I can neither confirm or deny the rumors, but I can offer you two pieces of evidence that suggest such a twist is in the realm of possibility. The first one comes care of Joe Manganiello, who tells TVLine, “We’re getting to the point in the season now where people are starting to die. The table reads are starting to get smaller, and I’m sure they will continue to do that.” Exhibit B, meanwhile, arrives in the form of Episode 7′s title — “The Funeral.” Sorry I don’t have better news for you Kelly.
EOnline also posted a snippet on the possibility of deaths on True Blood:
Alicia R.: We haven’t heard a peep aboutTrue Blood from my bb Ryan Kwanten. What’s he doing?
He’s probably doing sit-ups somewhere. God bless him. But for real, we did just chat with him about the new season of True Blood, and he delivered some harrowing news. “There are more deaths,” he tells us. “Some favorite characters may not last.” We did not like that piece of scoop (don’t you dare touch Lafayette, TB writers!), but we did like it when Kwanten said that the show was getting back to the supernatural elements and madness that it’s famous for.
Another “death” comment by another cast member:
Eliza: We’re less than two months away from the new season of True Blood, so how about some scoop to celebrate?
Well, can the possibility of death really be cause for celebration? Oh, all right. Take it away, Joe Manganiello: “We’re in the middle of episode six, moving right along. Right now, we still have the big cast with the big table-reads, but pretty soon everybody’s going to start getting knocked off!” Yikes! As for the latest showrunner swap, Manganiello says, “I think withBrian Buckner replacing Alan Ball there’s maybe some hair being let down, maybe some ‘let’s get wild, let’s get crazy!’” SOURCE:
Sorry but I am not drinking the Kool Aid yet. I HIGHLY DOUBT that Eric Northman will be killed off. The whole speculation based on episode 6.07 being titled “Funeral” does not mean it will be a vampire death. Vampires are not buried nor do they receive funerals so why would that title mean it’s a vampire?
Yes there will be a few deaths in season 6. I’m pretty sure a few of them will be in the premiere episode. (my guesses would be–Luna won’t survive the skin walking and probably Nora will be killed as they leave the Authority HQ again all just a guess). There will be OTHER deaths as well. Just look at the casting calls for season 6! They always add a lot of characters that just get killed.
The theme for season 6 of True Blood does seem to be that there will be a “war” between vampires and humans. The actions of the vampires and all the killing of humans in season 5 will have a definite impact on their freedom in season 6. In wars, there are casualties. Again I do not believe that Eric Northman will be one of the casualties.
Waiting sucks but even more when there are nothing but rumors all over the internet! There is a big ____ will die every season on True Blood. It’s not a new rumor!
