You know what's so great about True Blood? Besides Alexander Skarsgard's naked torso? True Blood isn't just entertaining, it's educational. Educational television. And if you don't believe me, just consider the many, many things we've learned from the show: Faeries are like vampire potato chips -- no vamp can eat just one. Witches are the most boring "supe" on the block. Were-panthers are a thing. And now, thanks to a new poster for season 6, we've learned that "No One Lives Forever." (OMG, the Fame theme song was a lie!)
The question, of course, is which character is gonna stop living forever this season?!
Some (twisted, malevolent, and BLIND) people are insisting the blurry vamp in the poster is Alexander Skarsgard. Which simply cannot be the case. I mean, frankly, killing off Eric Northman would quite literally be the worst decision made by any TV show writers in the history of TV show writers. Ever. Got that, True Blood writers? EVER. Ahem. In my personal opinion, the fanger in the poster looks an awful lot like Mr. Bill Compton, who definitely has some bad karma headed his way after the Billith fiasco.
Anyway. According to Alexander Skarsgard, Eric will be getting back to his bad boy roots in season 6. “[Eric's] doing some evil stuff this year, some stuff that’s not so nice,” says Skarsgard. Guess that means we won't be seeing puppy dog-eyed, hoodie-wearing pushover Viking again anytime soon, though Skarsgard says he likes good Eric AND bad Eric:
“I like them both. It’s fun to go back and forth, you get to play around with both sides. It’s always more interesting than one extreme or the other ... when you have both within, and it’s an internal struggle.”
He's sooooooooo deep!!
Where were we? Oh yeah, who's gonna die?? If I had to choose a vamp to vanquish, I think I'd go with Steve Newlin (sorry, dude). Now that Russell's gone, he really serves no purpose, does he?
Which vampire do you think is going to die in True Blood season 6?
