We all saw Tara take a bullet to the brain all over Sookie’s kitchen, but BFD, right? People have been shot many a time on True Blood and made it out just fine.

Look at Sookie — she was shot in the stomach and ended up having a hot sex dream as a result!

Who knows whether Tara’s dead or alive, but one things for sure: Rutina Wesley is signed on for season 5.

“It’s out there that Alan has already said that he has big plans for Tara,” Rutina Wesley confirmed to Entertainment Weekly last fall.

“But things change. I don’t know exactly what they have in store for me and how long that will be. It’s tricky. And if I did know, I’m just not going to say. But again — half the head is missing.

"The cool part is people are talking. And that’s the question is: Is she dead or is she not? Because people can survive head wounds. But we have people on the show that can make things happen — you know what I mean? I don’t know what’s going to happen the first episode of next season. I’m just as excited and curious you are. I hope it’s good. I hope I stick around for a while. That would be nice.”

If Tara’s dead, will she come back as a ghost like her home boy Jesus? “I mean it’s True Blood,” Rutina says. “There’s always flashbacks. There’s phantasms. There’s all this crazy stuff. It’s very possible. But I’m excited either way. If it does all end, I’ve had the most amazing time of my life. It’s really great.”

So, how do you think Tara will come back? Sound off in our poll!
