‘True Blood’: Alan Ball and Charlaine Harris discuss Sunday’s shocking death of [SPOILER] –
Statements from Ball and Harris
Entertainment Weekly’s EW.com has spoken exclusively to True Blood executive producer Alan Ball and Sookie Stackhouse series author Charlaine Harris about the death of Claudine in this past Sunday’s episode. Many fans of Harris’ original novels were surprised by the death scene, which doesn’t occur until much later in the book series. But there’s more left to see in Sookie’s fairy world:
“After everything that was going on with the fairies in the first episode, I think we wanted to sort of put a pin in that, but obviously it’s not over,” says Ball. “I felt it would have more impact if it was someone we knew as opposed to just a random fairy.”
And Harris is okay with the change.
“If [Ball] can be gracious to me, I can certainly be gracious enough to wait and see where he’s going.”
