Will Lafayette Survive True Blood’s Finale?

By Jacob Klein on Sep 7, 2011 to True Blood

It seems like only yesterday we were complaining about how “Waiting Sucked” while we eagerly awaited the fourth season premiere of HBO’s True Blood. This Sunday marks the end of that season, but have no fear, Trubies, True Blood Season 5 is green lit and next summer just wouldn’t feel the same without your favorite vampires. The question is: will all of your favorite characters survive Sunday night’s festivities and make it to Season 5?

Lafayette Reynolds is a flamboyant, charismatic character with a sharp tongue and a dark sense of humor. In fact, the character is so loved by fans that True Blood show runners decided to gloss over his death in Charlaine Harris’ first Sookie Stackhouse novel and keep him on for another three seasons (at least!). But if you tuned in for last Sunday’s episode you’re aware of what’s happening to poor Lafayette. The below preview video also shows Reynolds in mortal danger more than once!

The actor who portrays Lafayette, Nelsan Ellis, is a successful actor and playwright who can be seen most recently in the surprise box office hit “The Help“. This is speculation at best but Ellis may be getting antsy about sticking around for another season when there are other, more serious roles and plays to take part in.

We’ve also seen a slew of new characters make their way onto the show who look like they’re in it for the long haul. The werewolves, fairies and witches that stepped onto the stage this year are being developed each and every episode so this may indicate an opening for some of the more “main” characters to bow out.

But what do you think? Will Lafayette survive Sunday night’s season finale of True Blood? Are there any characters that you think my meet the ‘true death’? Or any characters you’d like to see meet the true death for that matter? Comment below with your thoughts, Trubies!
