WARNING: Spoiler Alert

There is nothing fans of television shows hate more than when a beloved character meets an unexpected, tragic end. Television shows are notorious for killing off characters, sometimes without fanfare while others are more monumental. The latter was the case on last night’s episode of True Blood when it ended with a sudden death that no one saw coming.

Last night on True Blood, Joe Manganiello’s character Alcide met with a tragic end after he was shot and killed while protecting Sookie. Since then, the Twitter reactions have been pouring in. Fans have had reactions ranging from horror to sadness, showing that Manganiello’s character will truly be missed.

The actor himself also retweeted some of the reactions, ranging from many die-hard True Blood fans to other famous faces, such as Anna Paquin (who plays Sookie). The reactions to his demise have come far and wide as fans mourn the loss of his character.

No one is over his death yet, and probably will never be, as other shows could attest (We’re looking at you Game of Thrones.)
