The body count on [True Blood](series:200767) is an exceptionally high one. While some characters barely left an impression, others left an indelible mark and are still being mourned. Who would you like to see just one more time?
Russell Edgington (Denis O'Hare) My personal favorite, Mr. Edgington was a sassy breath of fresh air. I was beyond disappointed when he was taken out. And in such an unfashionable and unspectacular fashion!
Talbot Angelis (Theo Alexander) Talbot, Russell's one true love, was a handsome and suave morsel of vampire sexiness who thought he was about to have his dream come true with a certain viking; careful what you wish for.
Warlow (Rob Kazinsky) As a reader of Charlaine Harris' novels, I knew that this handsome guy really was too good to be true when he popped up.
Godric (Allan Hyde) Again, as someone who had read the books before seeing the series, I was already head over heels in love with Godric. His storyline is wonderful and it really helps humanize Eric. I cry every time I see him meet the sun.
Eggs Talley (Mechad Brooks) Benedict "Eggs" Talley was an easily sympathetic character and he helped Tara be a little less angry (annoying). It truly was a sad moment when he was taken out.
Marryann Forrester (Michelle Forbes) Though Forbes is a fantastic actress ( if you haven't watched her in [The Killing](series:772122), get on that right now!) I found her character to be so amazingly annoying. I loved the danger and menace that she brought, but it became too much and went on for far too long.
Drew Marshall (Michael Raymond-James) Better known as Rene Lenier, he turned out to not be as sweet as everyone thought he was. Everyone loves a serial killer with a Cajun accent, right?
Terry Bellefleuer (Todd Lowe) Oh Terry, both in the books and on the show, you were such a wonderfully complex and sweet character. How could you not root for Terry to have a happy ending? His death was definitely one of the more heartbreaking ones.
Steve Newlin (Michael McMillian) Steve was a fantastic, comedic, albeit racist, character. To have the tables turned on him and be turned into the one thing that he really hated was sublime. Steve was even more fun as a vampire; I would keep him around forever.
Nan Flanagan (Jessica Tuck) As both a member and representative of The Authority, Nan was a fierce lady with fierce fashion sense and a sharp tongue. I adored her and, while I understand she had to go, I was sorry to see it happen.
Jesus Velasquez (Kevin Alejandro) Oooh girl, who wasn't simultaneously happy for and jealous of Lafayette when Jesus came into his life? Introduced as a nurse with a heart of gold, Jesus's background, eventually, played a very big part in the show and, unfortunately, in his demise as well. This was another character that I was sorry to see go.
Amy Burley (Lizzy Caplan) Normally, I am a huge fan of Ms. Caplan, but her character of Amy was just too much. Sure, it was great to see so much of Jason Stackhouse sans clothing but I was pretty happy when Amy finally bit the dust.
Tommy Mickens (Marshall Allman) Tommy was conflicting; it was nice to see Sam take an active role in his life, but it was clear from the beginning that Tommy would be nothing but trouble.
Luna Garza (Janina Gavankar) Once again, it was so great to see Sam with someone that he really cared about. So, of course, Luna had to die. Sam can just never catch a break, can he?
Sophie-Anne Leclerq (Evan Rachel Wood) Queen of Louisiana, Sophie-Anne was a real trouble maker I was not sorry to see her die. In fact, I quite enjoyed it and wished it happened sooner.
Franklin Mott (James Frain) Franklin was a real sh*t stirrer and just this side of crazy; I loved him. He was such a loose cannon that only Russell Edgington was bold enough to employ him for his undercover skills. As usual, Franklin became obsessed with a lady; this time it was Tara and he was no match for her. Truly, I was almost as bummed to see Franklin die as I was when Russell died.
Marnie Stonebrook (Fiona Shaw) Shaw is an excellent actress and the witch storyline started out really great, but then it just got a bit too wacky for my taste.
Patrick Devins (Scott Foley) Foley is always a welcome addition to any show. Too bad his character on True Blood brought nothing but trouble for everyone's favorite PTSD suffering cook.
Melinda and Joe Lee Mickens (J. Smith Cameron and Cooper Huckabee) Well, what can be said of Sam and Tommy's parents? They were never going to win "Parents of the Year", that's for damn sure. For my taste, their storyline went on a little bit longer than it needed to.
Eddie Fournier (Stephen Root) Eddie was a fantastic, loopy addition to True Blood. Just when you thought you loved him, he would go and do something despicable. Ultimately, his death was exceptionally bloody and also a little heartbreaking.
Jorge Alonso de San Diego (Zeljko Ivanek) Otherwise known as The Magister, he was a fun slice of evil and his death was a long time coming and extremely satisfying. I really enjoyed him and was a wee bit sorry to lose him.
Nora Gainesborough (Lucy Griffiths) Who can forget the sight of Eric having passionate sex with his sister? True Blood loves to push the boundaries of what we think is proper and they really blew everyone's socks off with the introduction of Nora. Of course, Eric and Nora weren't blood related, so, it really wasn't as scandalous as it initially seemed. Another character that humanized Eric, it was very sad, indeed, to watch Nora pass.
Roman Zimojic (Chris Meloni) I was about to bail on True Blood when they brought in Meloni and I wasn't going to miss him for anything! Tall, dark and handsome, Meloni, as always, delivered a badass character and I was very sad to lose him. Very sad.
