Pam and Tara have one of the more unique relationships on the HBO vampire drama "True Blood," but the two did not get as much airtime in Season 6 as some fans may have hoped.
But in the following excerpt from this week's "Ask Ausiello" column at TVLine, Michael Ausiello reports that things could change in Season 7:
Question: Thanks for the great True Blood post mortem. Just one problem - you failed to ask EP Brian Buckner about Pam and Tara! -Cara
Ausiello: Actually, I succeeded at making you think I failed. The fact is, I did ask Buckner about the Sapphic vamp duo - specifically, will their floundering relationship get any airtime in Season 7 - but I opted to hold his answer for AA. (Me = Totally sneaky.) "As the audience heard Pam say in Episode 1, life is long - especially for vampires," notes the boss man. "She also told Tara that this is not going to be a love story. But I would urge [fans] to be patient. Because if the show delivers on the audience's expectation every week, that's not storytelling. Where's the surprise in that? These [story] threads can be picked up later. I want to be able to tell more interesting, circuitous stories at times and not always deliver on the junk-food promise of the show."
Buckner did not explicitly say whether or not Pam and Tara would have more to do next season, but it seems he did at least acknowledge some fans' displeasure with their Season 6 arc.
