Who is Arlene Fowler Bellefleur?
Arlene Fowler Bellefleur is the mother of three children, and has been married five times. She is a waitress at Merlotte’s as well as a friend of Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Pacquin), who frequently and graciously takes on Arlene’s shifts when she leaves early to be with her kids.
At one time, Arlene was engaged to Jason Stackhouse’s friend Rene, though this relationship was quashed when it was discovered that Rene was the Bon Temps serial killer. After hooking up with Terry Bellefleur (Todd Lowe) during several maenad orgies, the two fell in love and married, but when Arlene learned she was pregnant with Rene’s baby, she feared the baby was evil.
This belief was cemented when a mysterious fire started in the Bellefleur’s house, which Arlene attributed to her “demon” baby. The fire was later revealed to be started by a vengeful spirit called an Ifrit, who was after Terry and his marine group for killing an innocent woman and her family in Iraq.
Arlene is loyal and always stands by her man, and so she stood by Terry while he suffered through both his PTSD and the torture the Ifrit rained down on him, even when he tried to leave her. Now that the spirit has been satiated is no longer after her husband, hopefully Arlene can settle down into a peaceful and happy family life.
