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