At this point, Bon Temps’ graveyard is so full of bodies, Sookie’s going to have to start taxiderming all the people she and her friends kill. Most of the supernaturals who die on True Blood deserve to rot in alligator infested water, but sometimes one of our favorite ladies or gents meet the true death and leave us in a state of mourning. We’re still wearing black over Jesus. Sob!

Check out 7 characters from True Blood’s who we wish would rise from the grave and come back into our lives.

1. Tommy Mickens

Thinking about Tommy as he lay dying in a pool of blood and vomit makes us want to write a sad emoticon face. This angst-ridden hick caused more trouble around Bon Temps than he was worth, and it was kind of awkward when he killed his parents and fed them to alligators — but we still loved him.

Here’s to hoping Tommy will turn into a zombie and re-explore his brief foray into cross-dressing.

2. Sophie Anne Leclerq

We still haven’t gotten over the fact that Bill had Sophie-Anne murdered by a bunch of muggles. It’s like, if you’re going to subject someone to the true death, at least man up and do it yourself, William

. We saw Sophie explode all over Bill’s room with our own two eyes, but we still live in hope that she’ll rise from the grave, put on a jaunty veil and give Hard Hearted Hannah the middle finger.

3. Nan Flanagan

When Nan first came into our lives, she wasn’t exactly our favorite vamp on the block. Not only did she terrify us with her leather power suits, she also c*ck blocked Bill and Eric’s blossoming bromance.

But as time went on, we grew to love Nan’s snarky quips and bitter rants. Now that she’s dead, there’s no one to make fun of Bill. Well, except for us.  

4. Jesus Velasquez

We’re still crying over Jesus’ sudden demise. It was bad enough when Lafayarnie stabbed his hand with an eggy fork (Hello? Salmonella poisoning!), but then she had to go and shiv him in the stomach.

Of course, it was some comfort that Jesus popped up in Lala’s dreams, but if we’ve learned anything from Ghost (starring Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze) it’s that having sex with the undead isn’t as fun as it seems.

5. Tara Thornton

Noooo, Tara! This girl’s death was the shocker of a life time — and we’re still experiencing waves of nausea from seeing her brains splattered all over Sookie’s kitchen.

Some hopeful fans think Tara might still be alive, but considering that half her head is missing, it’s not looking good. Well, unless Sookie’s magical fairy powers know how to re-grow snarky brain tissue.

6. Franklin

Sure, he was a kidnapping murderer, but oh how we loved him. Franklin won us over with his British accent and deranged eyes — and let’s get real, the time he strapped Tara to a toilet and brought her a bouquet of flowers was kind of adorable.

If he managed to return from the dead after getting his head pummeled with a mace, we have no doubt that he can survive a true death or two.

7. Talbot

We can’t even talk about Talbot without crying. Everything about him was perfection –– from his haughty accent, to his love of interior design, to his penchant for playing strip chess.

We’re still writing Sookie hate mail for pouring his remains down Fangtasia’s sink. RIP forever, Tata!
