Pam and Tara may be cold-blooded, but they’re red hot for each other.

At the end of True Blood Season 5, we saw their not-so-surprising relationship unfold when the pair shared a passionate kiss at Authority headquarters. And while the action unfortunately ended there, we saw them talk about their “long-time coming” date in a deleted scene from the finale!

But come Season 6, will the maker and her progeny’s relationship evolve, or will they continue butting heads like before? According to Kristin Bauer van Straten, the times, they are a-changin’!

“We are more alike than we would like to admit,” Kristin told The Vault. “[Tara] is a kindred spirit who has had hard times, comes from a hard past, and is a tough fighter; they both have that in common. They never give up. Tara is starting to feel loyalty and respect for her maker.”

While Pam has always had “loyalty and respect for Eric,” her vampire relationship wasn’t forced like Tara’s was. And with Pam and Tara’s initial mutual hatred of each other, the odds weren’t in their favor from the get-go.

But as time progressed, we saw a shift — which will continue into next season. 

“As the season began and how they wrote it, me having a progeny was reminding me of my childhood, so to speak, with Eric,” Kristin spilled. “I was always looking for links in how either I would be rejecting my progeny because the relationship was so pale in comparison to what I had with Eric or, if it would bring out a softer side of Pam.”

Since Eric and Pam’s bond can never be truly matched, Kristin found a middle ground for Tara and Pam, claiming she “vacillated between those two: first being really harsh, followed by letting the softer side come out and then putting the walls back up.”

Considering how hot and heavy they got in the True Blood Season 5 finale, though, we expect that some form of romance will come into play

What do you think, Truebies? Will Pam and Tara end up like Pam and Eric, or will their relationship just get physical, physical? Weigh in below!
