EW EXCLUSIVE: 'True Blood': Alan Ball and Charlaine Harris discuss Sunday's shocking death of SPOILER --

Exciting news Vampire Empire fans... our Friends over at Entertainment Weekly have let us in an awesome tidbit before it even hits news stands.

Entertainment Weekly’s has spoken exclusively to True Blood executive producer Alan Ball and 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."

For her part, Harris says she “was surprised” by the death of Claudine, but trusts in Ball and where he takes the stories. Says the author, “If he can be gracious to me, I can certainly be gracious enough to wait and see where he’s going.”

No doubt this season of True Blood will hold even more surprises, but Ball gave EW a tease of what to expect. “It gets ugly between the vampires and the witches,” says Ball.

“There’s more than one fight coming up. There’s also a very unexpected romantic attachment which you’ll start to see the beginnings of I believe in next week’s episode. We’re gonna find out a lot about Jesus’ magic that’s in his family.

We’re gonna get to the bottom of what’s going on with Arlene’s baby.”

As if True Blood could get any more exciting!
