True Blood Season 7: Delicious Plot Twist For Sookie and Eric?
June 19, 2014 by Rachel Tsoumbakos
Entertainment Weekly Dishes the Dirt on Sookie and Eric:
Fans of HBO’s True Blood are certainly getting excited about it’s return this Sunday – but there is one particular character that seems to be on everyone’s mind more than all the others: Eric Northman. While we haven’t seen hide nor naked hair of him since he began to burn to a crisp in the True Blood Season 6 finale, the actor who portrays him has also been somewhat on the downlow as well. With his absence from all the Season 7 promo clips and the fact that he was away filming Tarzan rather than attending the True Blood Season 7 premiere event in Hollywood this week, fans are getting a little… anxious.
But have no fear Truebies, it seems we will get our fill of viking vampire Eric Northman in the final ever season of True Blood, thanks to this tasty tidbit from Entertainment Weekly:
When he first appears, he’s letting Jason (Ryan Kwanten) unbuckle his belt, with enough candles flickering in the background to light a cake for his 1,087th birthday. But as it turns out, this is all just Jason’s dream. More silly than sexy, the scene glows as if someone had set True Blood‘s Instagram filter to “Valtrex commercial.” We’ve seen this kind of cheap fake-out before, like when Jason’s romance with Warlow was later revealed to be just a fantasy. They can’t fool us again.
Is all of this enough to abandon True Blood before its grand finale? Not quite. There’s a clever twist involving Eric that could set up an exciting arc for Sookie [played by Anna Paquin]. Whether he is dead-dead or just undead — we won’t spoil that here — he will definitely spark some suspense this season. Even if Sookie ends up with Bill (Stephen Moyer), there’s enough of Sweden’s favorite sunbather to satisfy.
Now I think that is just about the best news I’ve heard all day! What is your take on this exciting development? How do you think this story line will pan out between Eric and Sookie? And what do you think of the fabulous True Blood themed cover for the latest edition of Entertainment Weekly (pictured below)? Let us know in the comments below!
