Will A Major Human ‘True Blood’ Character Die In Season 6?
By Staff Writer | June 17, 2013 03:13 PM EDT
Last night, the sixth season of "True Blood" premiered right where it left off from last season, with Sookie and Eric running from a very bloody Bill, transformed into a hyper-immortal after drinking Lilith's blood, the mother of all vampires. But the big question still remains: who will bite the dust this season?

This season is the first one without creator Alan Ball involved. It has been confirmed that a major character in the series will die in season six.
Ryan Kwanten, who plays Sookie's brother Jason, commented on the cast's feelings when they read a particularly shocking episode.
"It's heartbreaking," Kwanten told E! News about the table read. "I was actually quite surprised that we had survived as long as we have without any true main cast dying. It was tough; even in the table read when we knew that this character was going to go, there were tears galore."
"It sucked! When you get used to being around somebody and get to know them both as their character and who they are, it's just not fair to see them go," he added.
"The table read was really sad, heartfelt. That person cried. We all clapped, and then in True Blood fashion, we had red velvet cake," Joe Manganiello said.
Joe, who plays werewolf Alcide Herveaux, explained this interesting tradition for the True Blood cast: "When someone dies, they serve red velvet cake. Like, bloody cake, and you eat it ceremoniously, which is kind of what werewolves do," he said.
According to E! News, in a live chat hosted by HBO, the cast revealed that this season "takes a toll on the humans for sure."
Does this mean that the main cast member to die off will be a human, instead of a vampire, werewolf, or other superhuman creature?
For now, we will have to keep watching and keep the red velvet cake ready.
