HBO knows that the Truebies of the world are dying for any goodies on the upcoming fifth season, which is why they have just released the Season 5 cast posters! The posters show off old and new characters, and one poster in particular shows off much more than just a face, it reveals one big spoiler. Whether or not it was HBO’s plan to reveal it to us is unknown, but either way, the secret is out. Check out the cast posters below and see if you can figure out the big spoiler (don’t look if you want it to be a surprise when you watch the show).
Did you spot it? It’s Tara! Tara is part of the Season 5 cast, she has her own character poster and everything. For those that may have forgotten – in the bloody fourth season finale of True Blood, Tara was shot in the head by Debbie Pelt. The show then ended with Sookie screaming for help and we were left not knowing whether or not Tara survived the horrific wound. That was the big cliffhanger of the season, and now, we know that she survives. If that’s not enough proof for you, I’ve got more! Rutina Wesley, the lovely actress who plays Tara, has already been added to the Season 5 episode casting list. According to IMDB, she will be in quite a few Season 5 episodes. So it has been confirmed, Tara will return, how long she will stay is something we’ll just have to wait and see.
The return of Tara is great news for some and horrible news for others. Some True Blood fans absolutely despise Tara and her constant personal drama, but others love her and her kickass attitude.
Where do you stand? Are you excited about the return of Tara or not? Were you hoping she would die? How do you think True Blood is going to pull off her surviving a gunshot to the head?
