“True Blood” has been leaving its viewers with jaw-dropping moments for the past five seasons, and season six has been proving to be no different. With new threats, new love and new developments, the current season of HBO’s hit vampire series has been nonstop with drama -- and the remaining five episodes will definitely leave fans hungry for season seven.
During the “True Blood” panel at Comic-Con International: San Diego Saturday, showrunner Brian Buckner released an almost 2-minute-long trailer for the final five episodes of season six. “You’re going to feel that the show is returning to its roots,” Buckner said of the series. “We’re going to try to condense the number of stories we’re telling and really make this feel like we’re coming home.” And, judging by the insanity in the trailer, everything is really going to hit the fan by the season finale on Aug. 18.
WARNING: MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD
Still set to come this season is the much-buzzed-about “major death.” While the trailer doesn’t reveal who the unfortunate character is, the video does preview a funeral.
“Death ain’t the end anymore,” Sookie says shakily. “Death is just a pit stop on a road that keeps on going.”
Dressed in a black dress, Sookie appears ready to speak to those attending the funeral. And since it’s daylight out, we’re assuming that the major death is not that of a vampire. If this is the case, it means that Jason, Terry, Arlene, Andy, Sam, Lafayette or Alcide could potentially be biting the dust this season -- or maybe coming back in another form.
As for Warlow, the trailer has Sookie telling someone, “I have these feelings for you that I don’t want to have.” But she follows it up with something rather harsh: “I’d rather walk this earth as a corpse than spend another minute thinking about you.”
