At the end of season 4, we see Tara get fatally wounded in the back of the head from a shotgun blast from Debbie, aiming for Sookie.
After the initial shock, Pam arrives just in time, looking for Eric. However, instead of doing the usual 'let them drink your blood to heal'; Sookie, in a panic, tells Pam to raise her as a Vampire instead.
Knowing Tara's past with vampires, and usually how simplistic it is for friendly vampires to let the wounded drink their blood for health, would Sookie decide to turn her best friend into a Vampire?
Is it because Tara is dead, or rather, close enough to death that even Vampire blood cannot save her? Or is this merely a slip-up on Sookie's part, panicking over her best friend's condition?
