True Blood’s “Chivalrous” Men

July 23, 2010 by  

HBO‘s True Blood is set down in the south where the idea of the “southern gentleman” and chivalry lives on.  Of course Alan Ball has his own unique way of portraying things and he has done a great job of showing us the softer side to our favorite characters. did an article on who they feel are the most chivalrous men on True Blood.  Noticeably absent were Bill (I’m thinking the infamous “head turning” scene might have taken him out of the running) and Eric.  Here is a rundown of who they chose and why.

Alcide HerveauxAlcide was chosen because he puts aside his obvious dislike for vampires to help Sookie locate Bill Compton.  He knows she is going through a lot of turmoil so he has been fighting his attraction to her and not taking advantage of the situation.

Jason StackhouseJason‘s nomination came after he chased down Crystal with no shirt on just so he could talk to her and find out why she was crying the last time he saw her.  He may not have a whole lot in the brain department but when he puts his mind to it he can be very sweet.

Franklin Mott – This was a little bit surprising.  As funny as he is to watch I’m not sure I’d call tying your beloved to the bed and almost choking them very chivalrous behavior but to each their own …

Another person missing from the list was Jesus. His showing up at Merlotte‘s and sitting there for 9 hours watching Lafayette cook was very sweet!

Southern charm or not, all of the men on the show are charming in their own way (yes even Franklin – his crying “You don’t know how much you love me” line was very sweet in its own twisted way).
