The True Blood Death Pool: Who's Gonna Die in the Season 4 Finale?

At this year's Comic-Con, True Blood creator Alan Ball revealed that "we will lose a handful of major characters toward the end of the season, unfortunately." I don't know about "major" or "unfortunately," but so far we've lost the following recurring characters: Tommy (scoff), Marcus (hardly a major character), Witch Man (heart was DRANKED), and Marnie (in body, at least). With the suggestive title "And When I Die," and a Halloween setting, Sunday's Season 4 finale is almost certain to drop another mother cold. Here's the promo, in case you haven't seen it yet:

Who do you think won't live to see Season 5? A little informal bet-placing is in order, so here are our odds on the top five contenders for "Most Murdered" in Bon Temps…

JÉSUS VELASQUEZ

True Blood

1:20 ODDS IN FAVOR

The season finale episode promo showed a glimpse of what appeared to be Lafayette's turquoise gown with Jesus' demon head. It's hard to imagine he could channel this ancient Mayan demon without first killing the Brujo it's bound to. As much as I love Kevin Alejandro, his time on the show might be coming to a close, leaving Lafayette and Toni/Tara to edge even closer to complete emotional detachment.

DEBBIE PELT

True Blood

1:10 ODDS IN FAVOR

Tweaking on V, abjured by Alcide, and convinced Alcide cheated on her with Sookie, Debbie has every mixed-up reason to come after Sookie right now. And since Sookie has two vampires willing to die for her and laser guns for hands, things might not end well for Shreveport's Ke$ha lookalike.

NAN FLANAGAN

True Blood

2:5 ODDS IN FAVOR

She's really pushed things into a "If Bill goes I go" situation, and she's never made out with Sookie, so bye Nan! Nice knowing you. I'm less certain about whether it will be Pam or Bill who kills her.

HOLLY CLEARY

True Blood

1:1 EVEN ODDS

Once the witch arc is done, there won't be much reason to keep this character in play, and also she'll be running around with vampires while dressed up like a fairy for Halloween (see promo), which is the equivalent of dressing up like a jumbo bucket of crispy fried chicken around me. She's gotten enough screen time this season for it to be mildly shocking if she's killed off, and she's also got that pesky day job over on Curb Your Enthusiasm. Doesn't look good for Holly.

ANDY BELLEFLEUR

True Blood

5:1 ODDS AGAINST

Here's my theory: Chris Bauer has been a hot mess this season because he was told early on it was his last, so he's been doing a particularly bad job in order to spite both the fans and Alan Ball. Also, Fairy STDs.


QUESTIONS:

… Who do you think will be killed in the finale, if anyone?

… Care to make it interesting, or does even asking that mean I'll get "thrown in the slammer"?

… How will Season 4 end?

Well, except for Holly and Andy, that deadpool was pretty spot-on!

Nice job, Lily.

Hoyt's mama in a hail of fangs! Doo it, please! Andy's fine. He's got a new contract with Bad-Taste Fairy.

OK, let's see here. They aren't going to get rid of Eric and Bill, because the world will completely go crazy. Sam isn't going anywhere, he's the only one who's somewhat got his head on straight. Jesus will go, because poor LaLa hasn't had enough heartbreak. Holly is history, this time being Julia Louis Dreyfuss's sister won't help her. Marnie is going, the season's nut always does. Debbie is history. Andy will go so Jason can be Chief of Police. Let's face it, the guy really didn't have much of a part anyway. I think the fairy will come get him so he can at least get laid again. Nans gone, she had no real part either. I think they'll keep Tara, she's the only sane one around. Hoyt may kill himself. They'll keep Alcide. And of course Sookie, Bill's personal door mat, will go back with the putz. She's crazy! I'd be jumping Eric one night and Alcide the next night, but that's just me. Anyway, I have a chance to see the punk band Rancid tonight for free, but I'm gonna be glued to the TV. Then I'll be on the phone for an hour with my BF rehashing every scene.

The series unfortunatly became this season like Heroes. Where many characters became just annoying so you don't care about (what happen to) them. The core main cast, read Sookie, Eric, Bill, Sam, Jason is unkillable. And the rest? Execpt for Andy, which is still a good charakter, although his V-addiction became repetitiv, and Jessica who gets annoying too, but still is hot. ;) Yeah, the Rest can die and I won't care much! So kill all the Tara, Jesus, Lafayette, Debbie, Nan or Holly you want.

i think it will end with bill and eric burning at the stake. in a recent interview with nelsan he said fans are not going to happy with the huuugee cliffhanger ending.

"Cliffhanger" has meant many things this season, very rarely has it meant any real suspense. I'm going to hate going a year without a new episode no matter what happens! Already miss Lafayette's surprising new hairstyles.

SPOILER (possible) I read somewhere that ''someone who thinks they are very powerful'' will die. This could refer to Marnie ofcourse but also to Nan.



Personally I think Nan will die by the hand of Eric, Bill, Sookie or Pam because she ordered to have Eric & Bill burned at the steak.

I am sure Debbie will die and Tara might die as well in the Sookie+Tara+Debbie faceoff.



I have been considering the fact that Eric might die since Alex keeps saying he gets bored playing the same character. If they put in a fantastic death scene and mourning scene I am willing to let go of Eric's character. The Pam/Eric flashbacks they've been referring to for next season might be flashbacks by Pam who remembers her maker. This would mean Alex is still in the series but will have much less screentime.



Can't wait for tomorrow!

You left out Maxine and Hoyt. Something could happen to them to. Hoyt dying would kind of help the Jason-Jessica arch.

I have considered that, it is definitely a possibility, but I really hope they draw out the love triangle in season 5.

Reply

This is a good point. I can see Hoyt dying because of this. Also, Terra or Jesus (it would piss off Lafayette and make him maybe embrace his Poltergeist). This would then lead to the possible death of Lafayette.

I think Eric will go if only because the actor is getting into movies and probably wants to do more of it.

No, he can't go, he is under a contract for many seasons, don't remember how many, but many.

As long that don`t get rid Sookie, Eric, Bill, Pam, Jessica and Alcide fine with me. I think that Debbie, Jesus and Nan maybe Andy this season was awful so yeah him also but i will care a little if jesus dies but i will live ;D

Debbie for sure. I'm afraid that they are going to kill Jesus, he's probably going to sacrifice himself to free Lafayette from Marnie. Don't know about Nan, I don't really care. Andy has a new storyline with the fairies so he is staying. I think that Holly is going to survive, romance with Andy and be the new queen witch of Bon Temps.

Thanks for the comment, I 100% agree.I put odds against Andy getting killed, but I'm just such an optimist I couldn't leave him off the list.

Fine with Nan, Debbie, and Holly getting axed. Nan is interesting but has run her course. Debbie go annoying and Holly just did not seem to do much for the story other than the little hint at a relationship with Andy. To up the body count though, I would bring back Crystal just to kill her off.

That brings up a good point. What the hell happened to that story line when Jason got raped by all the ugly women in Hotshot so they could re-populate? How did he get it up? Half of them didn't have any teeth! They just dropped that storyline like a bag of rocks.

I really hope that happens, bringing back Crystal and then killing her off. Not that I'm complaining, but where did that storyline go? Did we really need all that set up for Jessica to give Jason her blood? Couldn't he have just fallen down the stairs?
Reply

I don't think they are going to kill off Crystal until next season: Jessica and Jason's relationship is too green yet. They'll probably going to kill her off after the Hotshot women give birth to Jason's werepanthers.

True Blood is based on The Southern Vampire Mysteries by Charlaine Harris.

Good books! If you think the show is crazy, read the series of books! Make time though....once you open one, you won't move until the last page!

I really hope AB wouldn't be dumb enough to kill off Lafayette because regardless of him dying in the books imo he's one of the best characters on the show. I also don't want Sam or Pam to die...

I think Debbie and Flan dies. No way Andy dies.

Why would he? Andy is bound to protect the next generation of fae hybrids according to last episode, he should be around until his children are old enough to read minds.

Nan would be a shocker because she's the most recognizable face of the AVL in the media, Lafayette because everyone is sure it would be Jesus and Holy because everyone expects it would be Debie

How do you not have Hoyt on this list? For some reason I feel like he's gonna bit the dust. Or Nan, but obviously Debbie will be loosing her life this finale. Kinda obvious to me.

lol is it bad that i had totally forgotten hoyt was a character? kinda goes to show he doesn't have much purpose without the jessica storyline. so yeah, i agree with you. i wouldn't be surprised if he died.

Theories:

1. Either Lafayette or Jesus. Sadly, seeing as they're pretty much my two favorite characters, I doubt both will live to see season 5. My guess is Jesus will die because, if Lafayette were to die, Jesus would be kind of awkward on the show, seeing as he hasn't built friendships with anyone else. But seeing as Lafayette died in the first book, I wouldn't be surprised if he would die instead of his nurse brujo. Or, you know, on a depressing note, maybe both will kick the bucket.

2. Either Nan Flanagan or Pam. I've had a bad feeling about Pam this only season, and now that Eric doesn't like her, I'm not feeling too hot about her survival. When it comes to Nan, I really couldn't care less if she lives or dies. I just have a feeling she might get staked.

3. That girl Tara was dating. Totally unseen character lately. I can see her coming back for the season finale just to get killed off.

4. Andy Bellefleur. I've been wanting him gone the entire season. He is SO. ANNOYING. and deserves his jugular ripped out by a vampire. HOWEVER, what would be super interesting is if they did the whole "Caroline Forbes kill-off" to him (shout out to my fellow TVD fans), getting rid of his annoyingness by turning him into a vampire. I think that vamping him might make him tolerable. So, writers, either vamp him or kill him.

5. Debbie. Because she's annoying, has no point to be on the show now that Alcide hates her, and she died in the book.

Say whaaaat ? Andy is one of the best things this season ... in what universe is Chris Bauer doing a bad job ? He brings more laughs than Jason himself ... and i'll surely miss him if hes gone

i don't see Sookie, Bill, Eric, or Tara dying. Lafayette died in the first half of the first book or something, so i could understand if he dies but i don't really see that happening since he's pretty much the best part.. unless Nelsan Ellis just wants to leave
Reply

Everyone loves Lafayette. He's tragic and funny at the same time, and you root for him to find something good in his life. Being as hardly anyone had heard of Nelsan Ellis before this, I'm sure he knows a good gig when he gets one.

Hmmm, I like Andy, but if it's him, would Jason end up as police chief? I mean he's only been on the force for like two minutes, but why let that stop anything.
Reply

True, and he never even went to the police academy. Just poof, he tells Andy he wants to be a cop, and voila, he's a cop. I live in San Francisco, and I'm REALLY glad we don't have cops as dumb as Jason.

I'm putting 50 bucks on a surprise zombie apocalypse. They rise from their graves and slaughter everyone, vamps and weres included. Next season will consist of only one episode where the camera shoots the quiet town of Bon Temps with bodies all over. The episode will be narrated by Alan Ball apologizing for the unforeseen zombie attack which ended the show early. The zombies on the other hand will move on to the Walking Dead where they will create havoc thanks to the powers they got from eating vampire, shifter, werewolf, witch and fairy blood.

Wait, you forgot Sookie! I mean, she at least should be in the--LOLj/k...



1:30 - Eric might kill a teary-eyed rotting Pam before she kills Sookie (er...stands there with her hand around Sookie's neck for five minutes or however long it takes for Eric to show up). Since they gaveth me Tommy, they just might see fit to taketh Pam away from me. :(

lafayette, why wouldn't he be killed? as far as I understand he isn't even a character in the books anymore, and whats to keep the writers for using him as a copout. I can just see it, next seasons villian is really rene again possessing lafayete, the season after that its godric come back to shake erics hand.



I think it will be lafayette, how else will they get rid of marnie, some quick fix that they made up that they could have used the entire time but didn't find out about it till the season finale. N0, and if they do thats lame.

It will be Russell Edgington. He'll come out of the concrete just to slip and fall on a stake in the very last minute of the season finale.
