True Blood Season 7: Will Eric Northman Die of Hep-V?

July 14, 2014

Kristin Bauer van Straten Discusses Pam & Eric:

true-blood-eric-pam-season-7-i-found-you-hboIn the Season 6 finale of HBO’s True Blood, every Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) fan screamed out as one when the viking vampire burst into flames. However, it seems that was just the tip of the iceberg in regards to the troubles he is finding himself in. His progeny, Pam, has been searching high and low for her maker – only to discover he is now suffering from a terminal case of Hep-V.

The actress who portrays Pam, Kristin Bauer van Straten, has had plenty to say about the relationship and complications arising between Pam and Eric in True Blood Season 7. While it seemed that Eric was a lost cause at the start of Episode 3 (entitled Fire in the Hole), Pam bought his fighting spirit back to the fore by the end with the announcement that the threat of Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) was still very real:

It’s quite a triumph for [Pam] to delay his dying. She has to actually think fairly quickly on her feet, and through her panic and through her grief, to try to come up with a way to motivate him.

With Eric dying from Hep-V, however, will they be able to track down Sarah Newlin in time? Without giving any storylines away, for Kristin Bauer, it seems it will be a struggle for the pair of them – emotionally as well as physically:

I feel like she is kicking and screaming. It’s impossible for her to think of losing him. Pam just is in denial and fighting for every moment with him and feeling closer to him. Some of us have been through losing someone, especially with cancer, where you know the person is dying, which I’ve been through, and there’s a real relinquishing and a sweetness and a closeness that happens actually more and more knowing that that person’s time is limited. My dad died of cancer and my best friend of AIDS. I’ve been through it a couple of times, and I also knew — not that this is as big a thing — but I knew that my time with Alex Skarsgard was limited. We were really enjoying all the time we had together, and I could borrow from that — how much we treasured every scene more than we did in the past, because we knew it was a finite quantity.

Is that a hint that Eric does actually die of Hep-V? Or is she merely taking about the demise of the show and the time they have left together as actors? Only time will tell! You can read the full interview by clicking here.

True Blood Season 7: Eric Northman Rumor Put to Rest

July 2, 2014

IMDb.com Lists Eric Northman for Only 2 Episodes:

Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) has Hep V in HBO's True Blood Season 7Fans of HBO’s True Blood are fearful that Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) may not last for much longer thanks to the TV and Movie database, IMDb.com, listing him as only appearing in two episodes of True Blood Season 7!

And thanks to the fact that we ended Episode 2 with an Eric clearing displaying the signs of, what is so far, terminal Hep-V, it is a well founded fear.

But thanks to TVLine’s Ask Ausiello section, we have been reliably reassured by Michael Ausiello that everyone’s favorite viking vampire, Eric Northman, will be appearing for longer than that:

It’s a mistake and there will be more of Eric than that. A lot more of Eric. And if you’re a fan of Eric-Pam, then you’re going to love the July 20 episode. I’ve got two words for you, one of them is “trip” and the other is “road.”

Well, that’s a relief, isn’t it? Let us know why you think Eric and Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) will be going on a road trip in Episode 5 by commenting below!

Kristen Bauer van Straten Talks About True Blood Season 7, Eric Northman & Buffy

July 2, 2014

Kristin Also Talks About Being Pam and the Parallels Between Sookie and Buffy:

Kristin Bauer van Straten stars as Pam in HBOs True Blood Season 7 promo trailer 1After fans of HBO’s True Blood saw Tara (Rutina Wesley) die off screen in the very first episode of Season 7, many thought she wasn’t dead thanks to the fact that Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) doesn’t seem to notice the death of her progeny. It seems the actor who plays Pam has something to say about that during her recent interview with Vulture:

We do find out more about that later. There is something about that in episode three. I can’t totally tell you about it, but it is something that is addressed, and it was kind of an editing decision, but it will be addressed.

She doesn’t explain further, but it will be interesting to see how this plays out in Episode 3. Perhaps Pam was busy playing Russian roulette and had to keep her cool about Tara, or maybe there is the possibility we are on a different time frame to the events occurring back in Bon Temps?

And now Pam has to deal with the fact her maker, Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) has contracted Hep-V. Although, considering Eric’s sister, Nora (Lucy Griffiths), died so quickly from her infection, many fans are worrying Eric may have jumped straight out of the burning sun and into the sudden death round! Although, Kristin Bayer van Straten suggests there may still be hope:

…we see with human illness, when people get the same disease, such as cancer, the outcome can be very different. That’s explored a lot during this season. That’s a huge subject. And I feel like we’ve gotten to know over the years, especially after we saw Pam’s flashback, how important Eric is to her, because he saved her. The life she was headed for was going to be hard and short and lonely, and she really chose, and forced him, to either allow her to die in that moment, or become a vampire and create that special bond. And whenever he’s been in peril, she’s been so vulnerable. That’s when we realized how much he meant to her. And to find him in such a state… Their relationship is more complex than a father/daughter relationship, but that’s the closest thing we have as humans. A best friend and a father that’s been stretched over a hundred years. It’s inconceivable for her to think of existing without him.

Besides acting as Pam in HBO’s True Blood Season 7, Kristin Bauer van Straten also has time to catch up on another great vampire series; Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Considering the show she currently stars in, it seems she can’t help herself drawing parallels between the two blonde leads:

I’m in the middle of season four, they’re in college, and Buffy is trying to get away from trying to be the Slayer, but of course, she can’t. She’s being sucked back in, and she’s not having so much luck with human boys. Sookie doesn’t have the easiest time in relationships, either. And neither did I! And when Buffy slept with Angel, and he became a monster, that was hard for me, because we root for them to be together, and it was so brilliant of the writers to make it impossible. If they ever truly abandon themselves in each other’s arms, he will lose his soul. There’s parallels there between Bill and Sookie, when he became not such a good guy.

It will be interesting to see what Kristin makes of the rest of the Buffy series – and how Pam’s story line will conclude in True Blood Season 7. You can read the full interview Kristin Bauer van Straten did with Vulture by clicking here.

True Blood Season 7: Trailer #2 – Still No Eric Northman

June 1, 2014

HBO Teaser Video Shows Plenty of Bill Compton, But Eric is Still Elusive:

Alexander Skarsgard stars (hopefully) as Eric Northman in HBO's True blood Season 7Well, HBO released the second official trailer video for True Blood Season 7 – and, yep, there’s still not a single sighting of Eric Northman (played by Alexander Skarsgard). They have upped the level of Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) appearances though and we’re not really sure what that all means yet.

This doesn’t mean the trailer video is boring though – quite the opposite in fact! There is PLENTY of action occurring from the very first second, right up until the close at 55 seconds. Here’s a quick break down for you:

  • Sookie (Anna Paquin) seems to think she is the only person in town who knows so much about vampires and then concludes that a war has erupted.
  • Speaking of wars, it seems there will be a battle between who will win Sookie over in the end.
  • There is a whole bunch of happy shots – and this would indicate that something bad is probably just around the corner…
  • Pam (Kristin Bayer van Straten) appears in brief snippets that give away absolutely nothing.
  • A blonde woman is apparently being taken against her will – is it Ginger (Tara Buck) perhaps?
  • Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell) is eager to let people know that he belongs ‘here’ – just where ‘here’ is though could be anyone’s guess.
  • That bit where we saw all happy scenes, yeah, I was right, it all goes down the crapper towards the end of this trailer with people being bitten and the Bellefleur’s looking like a bomb zone.
  • There is a bomb exploding in front of Bill at what could possibly be Fangtasia.
  • Bill tells Sookie that there will be some sort of a decent, and, as a result, ‘they’ will be greatly outnumbered. On what, who or where, we don’t know yet. It does seem that Bill is trying to make up his behavior towards Sookie in Season 6 here though…

You can check out the full trailer below. Let me know if I missed anything important or what your theories are for True Blood Season 7!

Eric Northman Gets a New Love Interest in True Blood Season 7!

April 2, 2014

Eric Northman Gets a New Love Interest in True Blood Season 7!

And it’s not Sookie Stackhouse:

Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard)Many fans of HBO’s True Blood have been waiting six seasons for Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) and Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) to hook up for good. While Season 4 saw them take a brief meander through Romanceville, there has not yet been the ongoing relationship that was portrayed in the novels by Charlaine Harris that the TV series is based on. According to E!Online, it seems like a long term relationship will not be occurring in Season 7 either!

It has been reported that Eric will be getting a new love interest that goes by the name of Slyvie (or is that Sylvie, perhaps?). Either way, E!Online had the following to say about this mysterious new character:

Slyvie is a drop-dead gorgeous and can speak fluent French.

Yowsers! I wonder what Sookie will have to say about that? Or will she even care now that she is shacked up with Alcide Herveaux (Joe Manganiello), Sheveport’s resident rogue werewolf? And why a French speaking woman? Considering Eric left us in the final episode of Season 7 as a sizzling vampire atop a mountain range somewhere in Sweden, it would make more sense he be rescued by a Swedish speaking woman. Oh, how the plot thickens!

What do you think about this turn of events? Let us know in the comments below.

True Blood Season 7: Is Eric Northman Really Dead?

August 19, 2013

Naked Eric and His Possible Demise is the Talk of the Internet:

Alexander Skarsgard stars as Eric Northman in HBO's True Blood Season 6

Well, HBO’s True Blood Season 6 has sure been a hell of a ride for trubie fans – none other more than the finale, Episode 10 (entitled Radioactive).

So a whole day has passed since we saw that magnificent moment: Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) sunbathing in the snow while reading a book.

It was such a beautiful moment. Team Eric fans around the world squealed in delight.

And then:

 

Alexander Skarsgard stars as Eric Northman in HBO's True Blood Season 6

Oh no! The horror! Team Eric fans are now screaming in fear as Eric Northman starts to fry. While we are all thinking, ‘oh, surely he’ll run for cover‘, HE BURSTS INTO FLAMES!

Fans around the world went into shock. Most were numb during the rest of the show. But is Eric Northman really dead? Here are the pros and cons:

Pros

  • While Eric Northman caught on fire, we didn’t actually see him end up a pile of ashes. He didn’t explode either
  • Wasn’t Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) looking for her maker? Could she jump in and save him in the knick of time? Would she sacrifice her own life for his in the process?
  • He’s in the snow, so I have three words for you: Stop. Drop. Roll
  • Snow melts when heated, could Eric Northman fall through into an underground ice cavern?
  • Eric could use his super vampire speed to either run to a cave or dig a hole in the snow and bury himself
  • Rumor has it that Alexander Skarsgard (along with some other cast members) are contracted on for seven seasons (this is pure speculation though and has not been confirmed by HBO or its subsiduaries)
  • Russell Edgington (Denis O’Hare) successfully survived bad sunburn

Cons

  • Alexander Skarsgard has a hectic movie schedule at the moment – does he have time for True Blood any more?
  • He was standing there burning for such a large amount of time – how long is too long when you’re a vampire on fire?
  • There’s that infamous AOL Entertainment video interview with Kristin Bauer van Straten that had her choking up over having to even think about True Blood without Eric Northman
  • HBO have proven that they will certainly kill off important cast members if it is called for – can anyone remember the red wedding from Game of Thrones this year?

So, what do you think? Will Eric Northman die? Or will we see him alive and well in HBO’s True Blood Season 7? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!

VIDEO: True blood Season 6: Will Eric Northman Die?

August 1, 2013

Kristin Bauer van Straten Gets Upset at the Possibility of Eric Northman’s Death:

Rumors are flying in all directions again after a video interview of Kristin Bauer van Straten has emerged. In the video we see Kristin Bauer van Straten (who plays Pam in HBO’s True Blood Season 6) being asked by Billy Bush on Access Live if losing Eric Northman (played by Alexander Skarsgard) was a fear of hers.

While her response was a stock standard one that gave a way little in the clues department, her reaction was not. In the video below, you can see Kristin choking up at the possibility of Eric dying in True Blood. She is very quick to follow up with an ambiguous response:

I could cry thinking about whenever. If it’s ten years from now and I’m not next to Alex, I’ll be sad.

Earlier in the season, fans were frantically concerned about Eric meeting the true death after he commented to Backstage about the fact that humans will be the real threat to vampires in True Blood’s Season 6. He also added that he would be involved in a scene with a blood bag that was very hard for him to do. With the death of Nora (Lucy Griffiths) in Episode 7, truebie fans eased off on his demise.

Then this video arrives and the past few days of ease have evaporated and we are back to stressing about the Viking’s death all over again!

Or is Kristin Bauer van Straten getting upset because SHE’S dying in Season 6?

Who do you think will die in HBO’s True Blood Season 6? Watch the video here and then let us know in the comments below.

Spoiler: True Blood: Will Eric Northman Meet the True Death?

July 9, 2013

Alexander Skarsgard Teases True Blood Season 6:

True Blood's Eric Northman

With the human war on vampires in full swing on Season 6 of True Blood, all the fans are curious to discover who will actually live through the season! Alexander Skarsgard, who portrays the hunky Viking Eric Northman, teases about the war on vampires:

“There’s a war going on this season because for the first time in 1,000 years, humans are a real threat. Eric’s been busy fighting witches and other vampires, but never humans. You’ll find out how and why, but humans have become a danger”.

Skarsgard hinted that one particular scene was very emotional for him:

“I recently had to do a very emotional scene with a blood bag. I can’t talk about it too much, but that was quite difficult”.

Is this the end of Eric Northman? Is our favorite Viking meeting the “True Death”? It is a valid concern, considering Skarsgard is becoming quite the movie star.  He has three movies in theaters this summer: The East, Disconnect, and What Maisie KnewThe East is a suspense-thriller co-staring the indie favorite Ellen Page (Juno, Inception) It premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year.  Disconnect explores the effects of modern technology on human relationships.  What Maisie Knew co-stars Julianne Moore and concerns two parents stuck in a bitter custody battle.

Skarsgard’s star is on the rise, which means True Blood might be losing our favorite vampire.  Let’s hope Eric is hanging around for another 1,000 years.
