Jamie Lloyd died early in the sixth instalment of the Halloween franchise, as it is believed that the writers wanted to reveal new details about Michael Myers.
Jamie Lloyd, also known as Jamie Carruthers, was originally played by Danielle Harris in the Halloween film franchise, including Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers and Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers. Harris would then be replaced by J.C. Brandy for the sixth instalment of the franchise, Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers. Her character was fashioned as the adopted child of the close-knit family, the Carruthers, after she lost her biological parents, Laurie Strode and Mr. Lloyd.
She grew up knowing of her serial killer uncle, Michael Myers, which is why she was teased as a child. In what was reported as the lowest box office film released as part of the franchise, Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers, Jamie died early on.
In the sixth instalment of the franchise, Jamie and Myers were abducted by the Man in Black. There, Jamie was impregnated and gave birth to her son. After she managed to rescue her son after he was taken away from her, she escaped. However, she was eventually found by her uncle, who impaled her with a corn thresher, marking the end of her character in the story. The death was a narrative device in order to push the mystical aspect of the franchise forward.
This is as viewers learned that Myers had an ancient Druid curse called Thorn. According to the legend, the curse bearer is meant to sacrifice their next of kin on Halloween. This meant that Jamie was killed in order for Myers to kill his niece’s son as a sacrifice. The sacrifice would ensure that the reign of terror by Myers would continue, as it is revealed that the person who abducted Jamie and Myers is the leader of the Man in Black.
