i am so thrilled with the transformation of tara into a vampire. as only trueblood can do, the producers have uped the ante and pushed the character of tara to new heights, by becoming the thing she hates! with the bad*ass pam as her maker/ mother, the equally bad*ass tara is well on her way to becoming the most entertaining and flexible character yet.
With Tara now having a new Maker/Mother she has another chance for a great mother-daughter relationship like Jessica got with Bill. Her human life was crap and she always felt powerless. Now she has power, a new life ahead of her, I think this season will capture her steady acceptance of her Vampirehood and the new life that unfolds from it.
Date of death 2009? Edit
Why is her date of death 2009? At least a year has passed in the True Blood storyline due to Sookie's stay in the Faery world. I get that the sense of time in the TB world is extremely vague, though. So I could easily be wrong.
