Update on Last Night’s Big Twist On True Blood (SPOILERS)
Posted by Joseph Lee on 07.07.2014



In an interview with TV Guide, Joe Manganiello spoke about the death of Alcide Herveaux on last night's episode of True Blood. He was shot in the head by a nameless character. Here are highlights:

On when he found out his character would die: "When I read the script for the finale of last year, I called it. I put it down and I was like, 'Oh, Alcide and Sookie are together? They're going to kill me.' Story-wise, you can't have her break his heart because then the audience isn't going to side with her. You have to get her to Bill and Eric because they have to tie up the A and B plot. If you're looking at a show like this where they're looking for characters to help the show be vital, meaning you can kill off main characters and all of a sudden anyone can be killed off at any time, there is no one else my character is connected to except for Sam (Sam Trammell). So by default, I did some quick math in my head and was like, 'They're going to kill me really quickly.' I always used to have lunch with [former showrunner] Alan Ball before every season to talk about what they were going to do with my character. Sure enough [new showrunner Brian Buckner] called me up and said, 'Hey, let's go out to dinner.' It's like that scene in Jerry Maguire with Bob Sugar (Jay Mohr). I was like, 'OK, this is going down right now.' We went to get something to eat, and he had the first three scripts with him and he's like, 'We're killing you.' and I was like, 'I called it!' He's like, 'You know we have to do this, there is no way around it.' That was how I found out."

On how he feels about Alcide's death: "Getting shot in the head by some nameless, faceless hillbilly, dying naked in the woods on the ground and then being in Malibu when it was about 30 degrees out and try not to shiver? [Laughs] That's not exactly how I saw it going down, but I guess it's better than giving one of the vampires the bragging rights."

On if this means Sookie will end up with Bill: "I think it paves the way for resolution of those plot lines going back to Season 1. I don't know if it paves the way for her to wind up with somebody, but it definitely paves the way for resolution. You have to have some sort of tie-up one way or the other, whether that's an endgame situation or a confrontation. In Charlaine [Harris'] book, she winds up with Sam, so that's a completely different choice. Obviously we now know that it won't be Alcide. There are infinite possibilities. The ending will be controversial, I will say that. It's going to be polarizing."
