Video: Major Spoiler of Eric in Season 4

March 5, 2011 by  

Hot Off the Presses!

Spoiler alert! Fresh from HBO and PaleyFest 2011, we have a video sneak peek of what’s to come in Season 4 of True Blood.  It features our favorite Viking, Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgård).  For those who have read the books, it may come as no surprise.  For those who haven’t, well, let’s just say (we hope) you’re in for one heck of a ride!  Enjoy, dear Truebies, and speculate away!

“A shirtless blond man wandering aimlessly down the middle of the road. The wandering blond man is Eric, a dazed look in his eye…”

  • WOOO!! How exciting!

    I heard there was another trailer at the event. It was of season 1,2,3,and a little bit of 4. Eric was watching Buffy and Pam, Jess, and Hoyt went outside oF Fangtasia to confront FOTS people. I can’t find it though.

    • Jaxx

      AB must be following the book then, because Eric watching Buffy was right out our book 4. Excellent!!!

      • I think that clip package was shown because of the similarities Buffy has to True Blood in the most general terms of ‘good vs evil.’

        Hi jaxx,
        I found the Paleyfest trailer which had a combination of clips from season 1, 2, 3, and a clip of Hoyt,Jess, and Pam outside of Fangtasia. I found it on Youtube the quality was not great though you couldn’t really make out what they were saying. It’s worth checking out. Yes, Isis it was a neat clip. I love the Pam/Jess bonding. How could Pam not start to care about Jess a little bit? Hoyt was wonderful in the clip what a great guy. There was no clip of Eric watching Buffy. I just finished watching the last couple of seasons of Buffy last month. When the show origionally aired I only watch the first 3 seasons then stopped. I woud love to see Eric watching it in the show that would be a nice book nod. It would recieve a good laugh.

    • Yes, there was. I’m not sure if anyone’s posted it yet, and I didn’t take video of it. I didn’t notice Eric in the clip, but it was very cool to see Hoyt stand up for his girlfriend. 😉

  • Yessss! One amnesia Eric + one h-e-l-l of a shower scene coming up!!!! OMG! can’t wait. This is my favorite book out of the series hehe!

    • Jaxx

      Mine too. I hope AB does it justice.

    • ~ Caitlin

      Dead to the World is also my favorite in the series. I’m sure AB will torture us Eric/Sookie fans a little bit though.

    This is So Cool! AB hasnt tampered with it!! Book 4 was a Great Book and 1 of my faves! I hope that he can stay a bit closer to the book this year! Eric will have amnesia! Just great!!
    Question? Will Sookie grow in her attraction to Alcide ..If Bill is still around?
    Im hoping to see Some Sookie+Eric This year!

    Hi jaxx, pbt, and new jax,

    Yay amnesia Eric. Wow he looks so much younger in this video. Doesn’t he? I’m excited. Thanks for the post!

    • I thought so, too! I had to do a double-take, and wasn’t sure I was seeing a modern-day Skarsgård. Curious… although, it kind of makes sense if they did that on purpose. Adds to his “innocence”, no?

      • ~ Caitlin

        Hi Diana,
        Yes, Eric does seem more innocent. I still can’t believe how much younger he looks though. I’m sure that was the intent. I heard he was supposed to be like a 10 years old. He will be really sweet and funny. Alex said something like all of Eric’s vengence and dislike for mankind is gone along with his memory. Maybe they will show a flashback of when Gordic first turned Eric and helped to instill that hatred in Eric towards humans. That’s just my guess. I said this many times but I can’t wait for the Pam/Eric flashback. I want to know how she found out that he was a vamp and how she convinced him to turn her. Also, I want to see Pam’s reaction to Amnesia Eric. There is so much to look forward to next season. The 11th book comes out soon!!! I wish the companion book didn’t get push back but I understand.

      I noticed that too. The wide eyed innocence of Eric. His hair ha a brownish red tint to it too. I wonder if that means anything. Maybe that color makes him look younger???

  • Jaxx

    Hey, another Jax, welcome. LOL.

    I am for sure doing the “happy dance”. Amnesiac Eric. Thank you AB and staff. Cannot wait for S4 for sure now.

    How many days PBT??? You’re always good with the countdown. YAY!!!

    • “Happy dance”, indeed! I cannot flipping wait, I SOOO hope there will be some Eric & Sookie action. I really loved that book, too. Wasn’t amnesiac Eric so sweet?

        Hi diana,
        I hope we get to see the humerous side to Sookie and Eric relationship this season. That was one of the things I loved about the book and has not really been shown much in the show. I thought Eric looked adorable in that clip. I’m excited. We better enjoy it while we can because they probably won’t get back together for a long long time after this season.

        • I hope so too, Caitlin. I’m just glad Alan Ball decided to go that route, period! Love him. He’s got a fan for life. Oh, and Skarsgård, too. 😉
