In True Blood Season 6, Episode 8: “Dead Meat,” Arlene finally learned what Lafayette had found in her recently deceased husband’s safe deposit box. As a refresher, Terry had taken out a life insurance policy, leaving her and their kids with $2 million dollars!
We know that the distraught widow initially refused to take the money, but a cool two mil would change the hard-working (and sadly single) mom’s life forever. Lafayette and Holly urged her to change her mind, and it seems like Arlene might just listen to them.
Actress Carrie Preston talked to Vulture about her character’s newfound wealth, saying, “That's going to be interesting, to see how that plays out. What does a person like that do with sudden wealth? That's something for the show to explore. It'll be fun to see what happens.”
Vulture then suggested that maybe Arlene should just buy Merlotte’s, since Sam has been totally absent and she’s basically been running the place! Carrie laughed and said, “I know! It seems like Arlene is the only one who works there now. Who's going to serve the burgers now?”
Probably not our favorite redheaded waitress, unless Arlene’s going to do it in a pair of Louboutins and a Chanel Suit after a major shopping spree… which wouldn’t surprise us one bit. Pretty Woman, anyone? Plus, wouldn’t it fun to see a blinged-out neon sign saying “Arlene’s” in Bon Temps? We bet that little burger joint would be even more popular.
Do you think Arlene is going to change once she gets all that money? Tell us how you think she should use it in the comments!Source: Vulture
