"I just wanna rip these people's heads off and drink their insides."
―Tara[src]
Tb 0102

Pam enters Sookie's house looking for Eric. Sookie initially screams at her to leave, but Lafayette, desperate to save his cousin, begs Pam to turn Tara. After initially rejecting the idea, Pam agrees as long as Sookie promises to help her get back in Eric's good graces, and "owes her one." Pam performs the appropriate ritual, spending the night in the ground with Tara. As nightfall approaches, Sookie and Lafayette are waiting with bated breath, hoping for a miracle. Nightfall comes and there is no activity until Pam suddenly emerges from the dirt prompting Sookie to begin digging for Tara. As she uncovers her best friend's face, she begins to sob uncontrollably. She is convinced the attempt has failed and Tara is gone forever. Suddenly Tara springs forth from her earthen slumber as a newly made vampire. Bearing a menacing expression. Tara lunges toward Sookie who screams for Lafayette. ("Turn! Turn! Turn!")

Vampire Tara 5x2

Tara bites Sookie as she emerges from the ground. Lafayette tries to help Sookie but only gets pushed back. Pam comes to the rescue. As Tara's maker, she orders her not to bite Sookie or Lafayette. She then rushes Tara back into Sookie's home before leaving for Fangtasia. Tara starts to destroy the kitchen. She is not acting like herself and hits herself in the head before running upstairs to do more damage. Sookie knows it will be daylight soon and with help from Lafayette they use a silver chain to bring Tara to Eric's cubby. While Tara is sleeping she is almost staked by Lafayette. Sookie, returning from the Stake House, overhears his thoughts hesitating to do it and talks him out of it. Sookie tries to talk to her, but Tara only says that she will never forgive either of them for what they have done to her. ("Authority Always Wins")

As Tara rushes out of the house, she is sprayed by the newly installed Silver mister on the porch. Screaming in pain she takes of into the woods where she is amazed at her newfound heightened senses. As her wounds heal before her eyes, she senses the heartbeat of animals nearby and clearly sees the skies beyond what the human eye can. When she sees a girl trying to fix the flat tire of her car, Tara attacks her, but then sees her reflection on the windshield and stops herself. She apologizes and runs off. Tara makes her way to Merlotte's, where Sam discover what happened to her and help her as the sun is rising. Sam places her in the walk in freeze and by the night, Lafayette tries to give Tara a bottle of Tru Blood after she awakens, but she warns all of them to stay away from her or she'll kill them, quickly leaving through the back door. Tara is seen passing the "Curl Up and Fry" tanning salon in town. She breaks in and lies on a tanning bed. Turning it on, she screams as the ultraviolet rays burn her. In Fangtasia, Pam feels Tara's self-inflicted pain. She shakes her head, muttering, "You stupid bitch." ("Whatever I Am, You Made Me")

S05E04 Pam and Tara002

Pam prevents Tara from killing herself and as Tara's maker, commands her not to ever do it again. She takes her to Fangtasia and introduces Tara as her progeny to Eric and Bill, and later shows her how to properly feed on a human without killing. ("We’ll Meet Again")

Tara was hired to work at Fangtasia Nightclub's bar and was clearly annoyed for being now Pam's slave. While serving a human girl, Tara's vampire nature drives her to pull the girl over the bar and try to feed on her but Pam swoops in and commands her to never try to feed on a human in public again. Thanks to this experience, Tara starts to bonds with Jessica as she knows what she going through, but their friendship is short lived as soon Jessica finds Tara feeding on Hoyt and the two start to fight about it. ("Let's Boot and Rally")

As Tara and Jessica's knock-down, drag-out fight rages on over Fangtasia, Pam watches with an amused smile for a moment before ending it. After taking Tara into the back, Pam congratulates her for the fighting, and tells her she's "proud the way a human is proud of a well-trained dog. Nothing more." ("Hopeless")

A hurted Tara shows her fangs but Lettie Mae tells she's not afraid for she's God on her back, and then Tara tells her that she'll see her again and lets her leave. Pam walks into the office and tries to console Tara who is crying, feeling down about her mother. Tara confess she hates her mother but yet she's crying for her. Pam then comforts Tara and tells her that Lettie Mae is not Tara's mother. Tara then looks up at her vampire mother and quickly hugs her, but after a few seconds Pam says that's it and tells Tara to get back on the pole because she's very good at dancing. ("In the Beginning")

Later that night when Pam tries to stop a vampire named Elijah Stormer from feeding on a human in Eric's throne, Tara watches as the men informs them that the ban on public feeding has been lifted and proundly says he is the new sheriff of Area 5.
