In the books, the maenad's name is Callisto and she's around for a few days. Lafayette is killed really early on in the book and it's someone local who does it, although I can't remember who it is at the moment (good grief, my memory is shot). It's not anyone who's a regular on the TV show and it doesn't have anything to do with the maenad. I didn't put that in spoiler tags because we all talked about Lafayette's fate in the books vs. the show upthread. I doubt AB would kill off Lafayette - he's one of the most popular characters.Originally Posted by MisterSSS;3685029;
One of the jokes in the series is that Merlotte's can't keep a cook and Fangtasia can't keep a bartender. In the case of the latter especially, they keep getting killed, often when Sookie's around.
