The upcoming sixth season of the hit HBO series “True Blood” may just be the bloodiest yet. Why? Because it sounds as if things are getting ready to come to a head and some big characters are about to meet their doom.
Rumors are flying within the “True Blood” fanbase that none other than Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgård) himself will be meeting his maker in the afterlife… or afterunlife if you will. This began when Joe Manganiello, who plays werewolf Alcide Herveaux, told TVLine the following, “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.”
The site goes on to say that Episode 7 of the upcoming season is entitled “The Funeral.” While that doesn’t sound like a definite end to Eric’s reign of blood, it does sound like a major player is getting set to die so anyone is on the chopping block.
