Joe Manganiello Talks Shocking 'True Blood' Moment - Spoilers!

Joe Manganiello Talks Shocking 'True Blood' Moment - Spoilers!


If you are a fan of True Blood, you have either seen the latest episode or most likely been spoiled by all of the reactions from last night so let’s get to the point – Joe Manganiello‘s character Alcide was sadly killed off the show.

“What are you gonna do with Alcide if he’s with Sookie? We’re gonna have a nice wedding and take off for Bermuda, then move away from town and stay there and have babies?” Joe told Entertainment Weekly. “That’s not the show. The fairy has to be with the vampire, so you gotta get the werewolf outta the way. You can’t have her break Alcide’s heart, because then people won’t like Sookie—they’ll get mad at her for breaking the good guy’s heart. So it’s the only choice you have, really—you gotta kill him.”

“I’m glad it wasn’t a vampire, ’cause I think that might have been emasculating,” Joe said when asked if it was the death he would have chosen for Alcide. “He hates vampires so much, then he gets taken out by one of them? Is it better to get taken out by a nameless hillbilly? I don’t know. [Laughs] I don’t know what to say.”

    To be fair, Sookie’s been insufferable for the past few seasons, anyway, so it wouldn’t come as a shock to fans that she dropped Alcide for Bill.

  • “You can’t have her break Alcide’s heart, because then people won’t like Sookie” <—- Everyone already hated Sookie

  • Jesse

    It’s pretty nonsense because he was killed because of her.He died because she didn’t tell him where she went, she didn’t tell him about that plan, she didn’t warn him….They just wrote it wrongly. She knew he would go looking for her after that shower. So she’s the one to blame. Is it normal to sneak out of your house when your boyfriend is having a shower? This season is a parade of stupidity.

    PLEASE STOP IT! If you don’t want to spoil the fun of watching the series as you did for the good wife then PLEASE, put a generic series pic and an evocative title such as: Spoiler, new true blood death, more info after the jump, so nobody will get angry. PLEASE!!!

    Tara’s death was stupid. Now his death was stupid. He is a werewolf and don’t die so easily smh. The whole season has been stupid actually should of quit while you were ahead….

  • nana

    I almost cried when he died :(

  • JustChill’n

    Wow. This show is absolutely nothing like the book series. I wonder if Charlaine Harris cringes with how the show producers butchered her story. I guess this is why authors are so reluctant to selling their rights away.

  • Evan


    You’re right! Sookie did kill him. I can’t believe she shot…Wait, Sookie didn’t do that? Oh, ok then.

    Placing blame where it actually belongs is not your strong suit.

  • Yeah, no.

    @JustChill’n: Charlaine Harris only cares about money and changed parts of her books at Alan Ball’s request (to keep the money coming) so she does not care as long as the checks clear.

  • Diedre

    Really, who gives a crap? True Blood is nothing but vampire porn anyway. If we get some d!ck and pus$y in the show, mission accomplished.

    Poor Alcide. We’ll miss him. Poor Tara too.
