HBO’s True Blood may be a show known more for its wild sex scenes, it’s gory, shocking deaths, and it’s outrageous plot twists, but that doesn’t mean the supernatural series (which you can stream on HBO Now) lacked heart. In fact, the world of vampires, fairies, and werewolves seems rife with tragedy, if we’re to judge the entire seven-season run. Deaths, break-ups, goodbyes, and an unfinished pie mark some of the most tear-jerking moments on the show, and we’ve combed through all of them, armed with tissues and hardened hearts so that you can re-live all of the heartbreak, turmoil, and grief once more.
Get ready to be staked right in the feels because these are the saddest moments on True Blood we’re still not over.
