Who is MaryAnn Forrester on True Blood?By
Rest assured, she’s not the philanthropic social worker she pretends to be. Maryann has an agenda.
Although I don’t know her, I’m fairly sure she’s a shape shifter. If you’ll remember the “flickering” scene in her back yard you’ll know that during that scene she was focusing on her pig. Shape shifters need a focus in order to manifest themselves into other creatures. Sam explained this to Sookie once she discovered his secret.
I believe Maryann’s purpose in befriending Tara is simple but very evil. Maryann is attempting to shift into a human form. She seeks out those who are alone in the world and entices them with her wealth and hospitality. She makes sure they’re totally disconnected from their former friends and family. Remember how Maryann’s servant removed Tara’s phone message from Sam? It’s all part of Maryann’s plan to isolate Tara.
I may be wrong, but I also believe the foot that we saw in the last episode was that of Tara’s mother, not Lafayette. I believe Maryann got rid of Tara’s mother in an attempt to remove Tara’s family ties. I also believe Maryann played a role in Lafayette’s disappearance. I’m not sure what she’s done with him, but he may be grievously injured.
I plan to keep my eye on Maryann Forrester.
