Sooo disappointed that Tara's alive.... My wife and I literally Hi-fived when she got her head blown off last season... Bad choice writers


I would just lke to see Alcide's nekked butt...think we can get that?


Tara's brains got blown out. SHE HAS TO BE COMPLETLY DEAD and if she's not, I'm going to be annoyed. Not because I don't like her, but that is bullcrap. When someone is missing brains from a shot gun, THEY ARE DEAD. She has no "spark" left in her. If they turn her, I am going to be pissed. As much as I'd LOVE to see her as a vamp and want her to stay on the show, that is just BS!
I hope Lafy and/or Sookie can some how save her. He did bring back that dead bird.


For real people?!?! Tara is awesome and i am glad she's coming back!! How normal would you be if you went through all the shit she's been through?!?! Keep up the awesome work Alan Ball!!


Love Tara, and I'll take her back anyway they give her. A Vamp would be a great storyline. Tara haters, Bite me.


A lot of "Tara Haters" here. True, she is annoying, but I find her to be quite enjoyable. Can't think of one character on the show I hate. I LOVE everthing about the show. Campy, corny, bloody, sexy...RIVETING! Bring it on!


It says that Tara resurfaces, maybe someone finds her body?! Maybe she is alive but either way shes one part of the whole show. I love the show and I love how it differs from the books. I am so sick of seeing peoples crappy, whiny comments. If you don't like it stop watching!


Never got why everyone hates on Tara so much. You'd be a little pissy and make some dumb decisions if you had a shit life like that too. Anyhow, shows are boring when all the characters are lovable and perfect. DUH. Bring her back and fang on, baby.


I DON'T GET IT! For ages, fans have complained about Tara. And the writers are messing it all up again with keeping her alive?!?! I was so disappointed and annoyed with the last season and now I'm getting the worst possible message concerning the next season... :-( Only good thing about this? It can't get much worse from this point on.


I think if Tara has been turned, its Russell who did it out of vengence. After all Franklin,who tara helped kill,was a friend of Russells. Taking Tara loathing of Vampires in to account, it seems its as worse a punishment as there could be,to change her over.And for Sookie to see her BFF become one of the undead,im sure would be painful,being Sookie knows Taras feeling about Vamps all too well. Russell is definitely out to make Sookie suffer,Tara being His "child" who must obey Him seems like a good start.....
