GAF and joyfulgirl have good points. It would just be sad for Lafayette to lose his cousin. Watch him go nuts in season 5 after losing both Jesus and Tara.

Or, Tara could simply survive the gun shot wound, a la Mary Jo Buttafuocco.

I watched it again last night when I couldn't sleep. A friend says I have TV-ADHD because I miss a lot of details while my mind is racing around a hundred other things (and I do believe I've demonstrated that in this thread).

Anyway, that kitchen scene at the beginning when Sookie & Tara are talking about Gran did feel very much like a foreshadowing of what was to come with Tara - much more so to me than the foreshadowing of Gran's appearance in the Lafayette/Marnie situation. I mean, Sookie sees Gran's dead bloody body on the kitchen floor; later she'd be holding Tara's bloody body in the exact same spot. Plus all the sentimental bonding, talk of the future, and Tara being actually sweet and likable again, all seemed to foreshadow Tara's death. There was nothing in that scene that evoked "Gran's coming to save the day" for me, but rather that something bad was going to happen just like what happened with Gran.

Gran also tells Sookie later not to be afraid of being alone. Without her Gran, her vampires, and her best friend, she would feel even more alone.

Also, it's interesting that Jason lost his best friend, too (although Hoyt might get over it), so there was a possible parallel with Jason and Sookie there.

So Tara could very well be dead. Or a vampire could come and turn her or save her, etc. Or she could still be a character in ghost form.

This is actually a spoiler:
 
Apparently the actress is contracted for Season 5 but says she doesn't know in what capacity she will return.

I hope Tara's not dead. I've always liked her, maybe a little less in Season 4 when she got super dark and angry all the time, but I've still always rooted for her. I would be really sad if they killed her off, even if they had her come back occasionally in ghost form. I want her as a full-time character! *hmph!*

She bugs me sometimes but it is hard to think of the show without her.

I meant "maybe a little less in Season 3"! Last season, when she got kidnapped and raped by that nut vampire. She definitely went off the deep end after that.

I still stand by my earlier assessment, with this show it seems that at one time or another most of the characters can become annoying, but somehow the writers seem to bring them back around and redeem them in another season. This season Lafayette really bugged me and Alcide was kind of boring. But I've pretty much always loved Tara and have always stood up for her.

I knew you meant Season 3. I loved Franklin the nut vampire!

I think your earlier assessment was right on.

More improbable scenarios for Tara:

It was a dream!

It wasn't really Tara, it was a skin-walker! Next season opens with Real Tara rushing onto the scene to find Sookie sobbing over Fake Tara. Sookie screams and jumps up, Real Tara screams, Sam shows up to explain it all, and everything's back to normal.

I hope Tara isn't dead either. I hope that she is still alive, and if she is on the brink of death that a vampire will turn her. It'd be great to see her as a fierce vampire..she'd be kicking even more ass. And Tara would be Sookies bodyguard for sure. I wouldn't have dumped Eric...ummm HELLO!! I'm glad that Jessica is exploring the freedoms that come with being a vamp now, and got away from the wet blanket Hoyt.

Ah, who cares, Game of Thrones is back.

I thought I'd be giving up this show, but after seeing the trailer with Chris Meloni .... well shit, son. I'm giving it another go.

I look forward to once again being entertained for the first few episodes, and then deeply annoyed by the rest.
