True Blood Season 7 Spoilers: Alcide Hervaux's Death - Joe Manganiello Hints Character Dies in New Interview

Uh-oh, I can see True Blood fans starting a riot on the streets if this is true. Joe Manganiello, who plays Alcide Hervaux on the show, has recently hinted in an interview that his character may meet an untimely end in the final season of the show.

He teased Alcide’s death on What Watch Happens Live, explaining, “I think it creates a sense of urgency and electricity to the season that anybody could go at any time. No one is safe.”

Several recent also suggest that the show’s writers could be deviating from the source material, where Alcide is still technically alive. I mean, they’ve barely kept to the text as it is, so why would this be so shocking? Tara Thornton’s [Rutina Wesley] already died, and the showrunners have already teased several major deaths in the next few episodes. What would be bigger than killing off Alcide? Other than killing off Sookie Stackhouse [Anna Paquin] or Bill Compton [Stephen Moyer], I mean.

Plus, the show seems determined to go out with a bang, if the premiere was anything to go by. The writers are clearly responding to people’s criticism of the recent seasons, which fans called slow, boring, and static. The seventh season has so far been anything but that, starting with Tara’s death and hinting at several more to come. If Joe is right, the fans are in for some big surprises. Of course, Joe could just be trying to throw us off the trail, since speculation over the final season has reached an all-time high.

What do you guys think is going to happen? Will Alcide die? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

    I, particularly wouldn’t care. Alcide, as a character was tarnished last season. He became such a dick, and this season is only emphasizing more of how much of a douche he is. All bets are off, and lets kill at least one person I dislike, because we all know Bill isn’t going anywhere, much to my dismay.

    I just watched tonight’s and I am pissed that alcide died. I’m hoping he is still alive and there is some twist because I’m pissed and at this point I don’t even want to watch it anymore because he died. He is just one of those charters you can’t kill off…..BIG Mistake true blood writers. I think you will lose alot of watchers.
