Terry Bellefleur

Played by Todd Lowe

Terry Bellefleur (Todd Lowe) lives in Bon Temps and works as a fill-in cook at Merlotte's Bar and Grill. He is a Gulf War veteran and suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder. Terry is the boyfriend of Arlene Fowler (Carrie Preston) and cousin to Detective Andy Bellefleur (Chris Bauer).

Terry served in Fallujah, Iraq and has admitted to killing a known 20 Iraqis by shooting them. He suffers mentally for what he did while deployed as he has a soft heart. During season 1, Terry had just returned from Iraq and was working at Merlotte's. He had a crush on Arlene but could not pursue her due to his mental state and her involvement in another relationship. Nonetheless, he was a sweetheart to her and offered to help her nonstop.

During season 2, Terry, as well as most of Bon Temps, was cast under the spell of a maenad named Maryann (Michelle Forbes). During this spell he took part in wild orgies with Arlene that neither of them could remember participating in the next day. This made their blossoming romance quite awkward.

Most people in Bon Temps are scared of Terry and find him quite strange, while his close friends know he is just a sweetheart who has been emotionally scarred by the war.
