Why are you laying the whammy on this lady Bill? Is she asking some awkward questions, perhaps?

    I agree SVB. I love ASkars and I love Book Eric but TB Eric is starting to lose my interest. I’m waiting to see the flirty sexy confident Eric that we see in the books, instead of the bad ass, tough and cocky Eric AB is portraying.

    And must I even mention the looks (or the hair)….all we can do is cross our fingers that AB is going to try to make it up to us..TRY being the operative word.

    i don’t what the clip could be…but i trust AB and CH, if she put is “ceature” in his hand is becouse he got the characters and CH nodded to it.
    I still can see Eric, quite clearly but this is a tv show and the perception of the things are quite diffent.Watch is not read, and that makae a lot of diffence, i know….
    Even CH said that what AB did with him is something that Eric from the books could have done, and i agree with that, he is a powerfull vampire and Sceriff, and respect the law is his first interest.
    Maybe he is having sex, a dirty one, or just some hard stuff in the basement, but everything is made with a specific intention…so i guess we need to wait and see all episodes and get our conclusions….but i’m sure 100% that Eric is growing and he is going maybe slowly dunno, for me not i’m ok with him, to be in touch with his human side.
    this clip is just a tease….maybe we’ll be angry….but it’s just a teas..becouse ’till now we had our “fan girl screaming moment” thanks to the first promo and pictures with Eric and and Eric and Sookie…so if in this clip is going to be something bad it’s just to make us angry ’till June 13 and speculating in how bad AB made Eric and how Hero he made Bill..
    Then from June 13 we’ll find out that he was quite the opposite.
    I’m damm sure about it!

    Man it’s really sad when AB can totally crap all over such a wonderful character. I still have hope, but not much, that Book Eric will eventually come through in TB. And even if AB fails and this new TB Eric is way strange I think I’ll watch just for my love of ASkars, and I do kinda enjoy screaming at my TV about how effing retarded AB is.

      I think I have to come to terms that TB Eric and Book Eric are 2 different characters. I trust that before AB was the producer of TB be was an SVM reader. So he must know that Eric is an extraordinary character and I trust that as a lover of the books AB HAS to at least attempt to stay as true to the character as he possibly can.

    Well, I don’t know… but this scene looks to me like the one at S2 Scratches’ episode, when he knelt to blink an eye to Laffayette when he released him…

    I’m very curious about how this is all going to go down. i will remain guardedly optimistic.

    I have read many reviews that AB and CH are in “understanding” that she would never let their characters in the hands of AB did not trust him, etc, that Eric is a vampire, it was “normal” sex in a filthy dungeon where few days ago he slashed a man, for the sole purpose of “shocking” and “amaze” the public, and say oh look! As our show is amazing and revolutionary, whatever! which the goal with these scenes.
    I know everyone just wants to remain optimistic and confident this season, I understand, really, there are some things that made me excited, but really you can not know until we’ve seen all the episodes to evaluate, and am trying hard to keep this thought, though with difficulty.
    but I do not think CH has so carefully built the character of Eric and his relationship with Sookie accept this kind of “development” of his character. I do not think she really knows where the show is going so crooked or not. For me it’s not just the end goal that matters, if we have Eric and Sookie (I’m still waiting to see a little of the book Sookie) at the end, but the way it is also important to me.
    just want to say I really hope I’m wrong, I’ll be happy if it is.

      I’ve noticed lately that when you read interviews with CH that she is starting to back away from the show. I loved Six Feet Under and didn’t love American Beauty so much so I am not sure if I can trust AB. I love AS but I’m not sure that I love his portayal of Eric. From the books, I never saw Eric as unemotional.

      May 24, 2010 at 1:04 am

      Okay, SVB, both should be on Youtube shortly. The E/S scene: Sookie takes off her robe and gets on top of Eric, he’s smiling and loving it, then she tells him “You want more”. It’s freaking AWESOME!!!

        oh and right before she says that, he lifts up slightly and grabs the back of her head with both his hands

          The snippet of the Bill minisode was incredible too! The woman’s name is Mrs. Smallwood and apparently she’s there hoping to get it on with Bill. Or at least that’s the impression they are giving us.

            May 24, 2010 at 1:13 am

            Holy f**ck you Guys, she’s showing him her engagement ring and he’s her hand inspecting the ring. Then he tells her “Mrs. Smallwood, what are you hoping to accomplish this evening”. I’m trying to compare the rings (Sookie vs Hers) right now..

              May 24, 2010 at 1:15 am

              Oh, and I also got a major “glamour” vibe from that… something about the way Bill was talking.

          • 34 MASpencer
            May 24, 2010 at 1:14 am

            I suspect he might be stealing a ring from her… but maybe that’s just what they WANT us to think.

            Either way, the scene is sketchy. Which is promising. LOL!

            • May 24, 2010 at 1:29 am

              I think he courted her and gave her that ring when she was young.

                Do you think that it’s the younger version of her who is the brunette on top of him in the promo?

                • May 24, 2010 at 2:57 pm

                  Yes, that did look like a flashback scene and would put the context of Bill’s little speech about loving humans in a bigger context than just his relationship with Sookie.

                  This idea is just too sweet. Delta Dawn shows up looking for her fiancee who, no doubt, professed undying love for her. What does the repulsed Bill do? He takes his ring back and glamours her, if she’s lucky. I’m loving this.

                There might be a life lesson here; if she is the flashback brunette, she was once young and beautiful too, much like our Sookie. All of us, if we live long enough, will become wrinkled and saggy.

                  May 24, 2010 at 4:28 pm

                  I have to look at the trailer again to see if it looks like a flashback. Honestly, the first thing I thought about when I saw the female walking up to Bill and finally seeing in the background it was a strip club) is the casting call for Anne, a stripper who gets drained by 3 vampires. Now I wonder if Bill is one of the three.

                    This is my theory, Dee. There is another shot of what appears to be the same scene, except you see Lorena with the girl and someone else’s hand reaching towards her.

                      May 24, 2010 at 4:47 pm

                      Now I just wonder who the third would be. I thought Russell but he is just into men so who knows. He also is wearing the same black shirt as the scene we seem him screaming, so might explain why he has that reaction.

                  Lol, I didn’t necessarily mean she was ugly, I meant that she was desperate. Its the expression on her face really,..lol.

                  I’m not sure they would make a minisode that deep, but it is a good sentiment.

                  Yes but Lorena is with them in the scene with the young brunette. Bill and Lorena hadn’t seen each other in over 70 years before Dallas. I doubt the lady would still be alive, or if she is would be much, much older than Mrs. Smallwood.

                    And you basically just solved that one lol, so true and no way that can be the same woman. Thank you for making me realize it’s not a flashback. WOW even more convinced that this is Anne.

                  • May 25, 2010 at 12:05 am

                    I thought maybe they hooked up again for a short period, but you’re right, they haven’t seen each other in 70 years.

            May 24, 2010 at 4:32 pm

            I forgot to add that I doubt that is his former fiance because I don’t think he would address her as “Mrs. Smallwood” he would call her by her name or some nickname. She is also a Mrs., so I doubt she is walking around with an old engagement ring on her finger. If he was with her when she was younger, it was a while ago and don’t know why he would have given her an engagement ring so long ago since they JUST legalized vamp/human marriage.

            • May 25, 2010 at 12:13 am

              The way he was talking to her reminded me of old fashioned courting language. Didn’t he use a similar tone with Sookie and address her as Miss Stackhouse at some point? IDK about the ‘Mrs.’ Maybe Bill’s money comes from scamming rich widows.

    F**K I didn’t record this one! This is is more of an HBO general series promo but it shows clips from S3: Sookie and Eric on the porch flirting (yep, there is definite flirty looks coming from both of them), Bill ringing the door bell of the old woman’s house, and some other things I missed.

        In this one, he’s in his red car (the pic that we’ve seen from S3) and he says to someone who is standing outside of the car: “Hello Sweetheart”. I’m sure he’s speaking to Lafayette because that’s the way he addresses him normally. lol

          • May 24, 2010 at 1:46 am

            IMO, all the vamps are associated with snakes in the books & show.

            Bill is The Snake from the Garden, and Eric is a dragon, a giant water snake, whose blood was used to symbolize Christ’s.

            I think you’re reading too much into it. They just upgraded his car. The Corvette is a little dated for someone like Eric.

          • 80 Gigi
            May 24, 2010 at 5:39 pm

            Well, actually Renne, here is where I think their Christ’s allegory has an ill-intentioned and doubtful turn. Because no matter if it’s called the giant water snake – the greek myth of Hydra (which in fact was supposed to had multiple heads), Draco, Leviathan, the beast that rise up upon the sea having 7 heads, the dragon, the flying serpent, etc; according to the christian mythology, ALL of them are considered symbols of satan. Even in the same greek mythology, Achilles was wounded with a poisoned arrow (by Herakles romanized later as “Hercules”)and the poison came from the Hydra, which was usually depicted as a huge poisonous water snake, but at that time interpreted as a giant slug. And in christian symbolism, slugs were associated with the devil, hence the remedy, cornflower, became a symbol of Mary and Christ, and was often depicted in paintings and christian frescos of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.

            In Greek mythology, the Hydra was the ancient nameless serpent-like water beast that possessed nine heads (and for each head cut off it grew two more) and poisonous breath with fumes so virulent that even her tracks were deadly (which in fact resembles the medieval belief of the dragon’s deadly breath). It was the guardian of an entrance to the Underworld beneath the water of the lake of Lerna, and was killed by Herakles (romanized later as Hercules and also related as a Christ symbol) as one of his Twelve Labours. And in fact, the myth said he had his arrows dipped in the Hydra’s poisonous blood to kill the centaur Nessus. Another myth associates it with the water snake that a crow served Apollo in a cup when it was sent to fetch water, and when Apollo saw through the deciet, he angrily casted the crow, cup, and snake, into the sky. The water serpent in the sky is known as the constellation of Hydra, which at the same time has stars with so descriptives names as Minaruja, from the Arabic – “snake’s nose”, and Minchar al Sugia meaning the piercing of the deceiver, among others. Hence, it is also been related in the christian mithology as symbol of satan the great deceiver.

            The only possible relation I might find with the viper car is based on a theory proposed by some mormons that suggest that the medical symbol of the serpent on the pole represents Christ. They suggest that the fiery flying serpent (the word “flying” is still used in modern Arab usage to “refer to the speed with which such reptiles may strike, as though ‘winged'”) that God warned the jews through Moses was the Israeli Saw-Scale Viper (which is pink/red colored). They suggested it was nailed to the pole as the Christ was later nailed to a cross. But this is a very recent theory and there is no correlation between it and the christian mythology symbolism, because, althought the snake in the pole is indeed seen as a foreshadow of the sacrifice of the Christ and is used as the medical symbol, the old and current christian symbol of the snake in this instance isn’t the Christ, but the sin that cause the illness and how it was destroyed at the cross by the sacrifice.

            And I think it’s responsible and safe to leave something clear. Just in case anyone might feel touchy thinking we (Renne and I) are talking about religion, no, we aren’t. We are talking about mythologies and their symbolisms through history. And about how TB is using them in its show. I’m only exposing the information about the symbols as they are depicted on each mythologies with no absolute intention to have any religious debate about them. ๐Ÿ˜‰

              I hear ya. “Some” people are taking extreme exception to Renee’s (and mine) theories of Christian symbolism and allegory in TB but it’s not really about religion it’s about the collective unconscious and how we organize mythical/fictional characters into archetypes.

              Even though I’m an agnostic…I’m also intrigued by the Jungian archetypes and mythologies used within the show. For what it’s worth, snakes are also closely associated with the cult of Asclepius (the Greek god of healing.)

            • May 24, 2010 at 9:59 pm

              Wow, Gigi. I wish I had you as a resource when I was writing my post. All I can say is that in in the medieval world and in alchemy Dragon’s blood, because of it’s healing properties, is a symbol for Christ’s blood. In “Escape from Dragon House,” I think Eric was identified as a dragon, and his blood has been referred to as the Healing Elixir, another substance with alchemical and Christological associations. Eric is not himself being identified as Christ with the dragon symbolism, but his blood is being identified with Christ’s blood. I think Rowling, in the use of symbolism and alchemy, is a huge souse for inspiration for CH and that she would be familiar with this use of dragon blood through John Gardner, since he is the authority on Rowling’s use of alchemy.

                May 25, 2010 at 4:29 am

                Yes Renee, in Escape from Dragon’s House” Eric was identified as the dragon…

                There is a “green” dragron symbol in alchemy that some interpret as symbol of an universal spirit that is present in everything, but this isn’t the dragon of the underworld presented in TB.

                In alchemy, the dragon’s closest correpondence to Jung’s archetypes is the Shadow. The Shadow can be described as the collection of characteristics and impulses that could be concious, but are denied, while at the same time are recognized in other people as “flaws” or defects. It is the inferior being in us that desires what we do not allow ourselves because it is uncivilized, it is incompatible with societyโ€™s rules. It’s anarchy and chaos, the exact opposite to the image of an ideal personality. It is also all that what we are ashamed of, and examples of it are: selfishness, laziness, intrigues, lack of control, unreal fantasies, indifference, greed, ostentation, envy, jealousy and hate, and primal instincts of passions and lusts, among others.

                According to alchemy, the dragon resides in caves, inside the earth, the underworld, which is also seen as the unconcious. When it leaves his cave, he devours virgins. It’s the inner emotional dragon the one that destroys the virgin (pure) “consciousness” when expresses the negative impulses of the examples above.

                The mythological dragon is never satisfied because he always wants more “virgins” and treasures. He has the power to enchant and to hypnotize with his voice the knight who dared to challenge him to rescue a virgin; and also has the power to impose riddles in which the knight gets lost. Thus, the Shadow has the power to enchant the consciousness and alertness. In order to save the “virgin” (the conciousness), the dragon has to be “killed”. In alchemy, if the dragon isn’t killed and his head is cut, the great work can’t begin; because the body of the dragon need to rot to to start the process and the first phase of the alchemical great work (nigredo = putrefaction). There are a lot more of symbols involved in this alchemical evolution, but I just wanted to highlight the dragon and Shadow Archetype correspondence because TB is clearly identifying Eric whith this archetype.

                  IMO the green dragon is Bill. He is associated with the negrido, browns, earthtones, an explosive hot temper, the deaths at the beginning of DUD, the graveyard sex. Eric is associated with the albedo. That’s what all the rain and washing at the beginning on DTTW was all about.

                    Actually Renne, I look at those as part of his shadow. m… I don’t know for sure if Bill is the green dragon in TB… because when alchemists talk about the Green Dragon they are talking about the universal spirit that is present in everything. I know you know most of these concepts, but I just want to explain a little about the green dragon symbol into the alchemical great work, because it’s the one that is related to healing.

                    The green dragon devouring the Sun means that the gold was dissolved in royal water. The green dragon was also called in alchemy as the “fire water” or “secret fire” that is seen when the Gold is dissolved with the solution of Nitric and Hydrochloric Acid known as ‘Aqua Regia’, in order to convert the metal into a Gold Chloride that later can be dissolved into water and become digestible in the human organism in the process to achieve the ‘Elixir of Life’. But before it can be drink, the alchemist needs to remove the nitrogen from the solution with Antimony, which at the same time is purified with iron. This Antimony was also made into a cream that became an all-purpose unguent for the practitioners of Alchemical medicine. The salve was often applied to open wounds and cured maladies such as gout, leprosy, stroke, dropsy, epilepsy, consumption and dehydration. And this “Philosophical Mercury” or Antimony was known as the White Virgin Queen, the Moon Goddess of Alchemy in many pictorial drawings that was also married to the ‘Sun King’; creating a rainbow of colors in the Alchemist’s flask. To describe this, it was said also that the ‘Green Dragon’ battled a ‘Red Man’. The blood of this dragon was said to be a sign that the ‘Sun of Love’ will be born.

                    This “Elixir of Life” is the same as the “Philosopherโ€™s Stone” (as the “fire water” that flows from it), but the alchemists use the term elixir to talk primarily about its energetic and healing properties. It makes a new man from the alchemist. He is reborn and immortal, partakes of divine wisdom and unity with the Source of all because he has become a heavenly king. He has been made a vivifying spirit through the “fire water” (the green dragon) and its “elixir of life” product. And according to some alchemists, the elixir is achieved on the albedo, or whiteness second phase in the Great Work because it is in the state of cooked or digested matter that it has now gained a white color. When it is projected onto metals it changes them into silver and it is a medicine for plants and minerals because it means the purified spirit of man, although it is only in the second stage, is already healing to body and soul.

                    Sooooooo … I would be very careful to admit it is Bill (I don’t want to…), but (like in my worst nightmare) I really suspect that AB is really trying to push a nuance of the “green dragron’s” symbol in him…

    Fellow Viking Lovers I hope you all enjoy the sneak peak and I hope it will not be as bad as some of us are expecting. Unfortunately it’s after 2am in my country so I’m off to bed so no watching or speculating for me. I’ll let you all do the dirty work of finding, watching and deciding whether it is good or bad for our beloved Eric and when I go on-line later this afternoon I look forward to seeing only good news.

    Big Viking hugs to you all. ๐Ÿ™‚

    OMG I just saw both promos on HBO and even my husband who is totally sick of me talking about Eric, turned to look at me with his mouth hanging open when that scene with them on the BED came on. OMG it was so hot I swear my heart jumped out of my chest. Awesome! Is that going to be the same one that’s airing during Lost, do you think? Can’t wait for someone to post the secret clip since I’m not in the cities they’re showing it in, nor do I have a smart phone. GEEEEZ I CAN’T wait for June 13th!

          No, it’s definitely real! She’s definitely trying to convince him she can handle herself at Lou Pines and then at Russell’s. I think that’s why she says “want more”. I think she’s saying to him: do I need to show you more or are you convinced that I can handle myself.

            May 24, 2010 at 1:51 am

              That scene is SMOKING HOT!! I cannot wait to see the episode! I am definitely loving this new Sookie. She’s so much more herself when she’s away from Bill.

                May 24, 2010 at 5:00 pm

                There is something weird about this new E/S clip. I think it has been edited, there is something missing, -I think we were robbed of a kiss…

                When she mounts him, ๐Ÿ™‚ , she puts her hands on his chest, his arm and his shoulder look like they are still down by his side. Then his hand is in her hair? Its too quick. They have it iso’d over at Sookiestackhouse.com.

                This could be more than smoking hot, this could be 5 alarm fire hot!

                I think we need to get our minds out of the dungeon,… this could be more important to Eric and Sookie in the long run. This could be pivotal, maybe in this kiss she actually responds.

                And I’m not putting it past them, sneaky editing is HBO’s MO.

                  AB did say that S/E will have a very intence scene in episode 6, this is probably it and just the surface ๐Ÿ˜‰

                    Yes, and I can see them doing this for fan reaction, imagine how many people are going to scream, ‘that wasn’t in the preview we saw!’

                    I think it might be in 4 or 5 actually, I’m still holding out hope for something else as well after Sookie gets injured/branded in her quest to save Bill, and that could happen in 6. Knock on wood.

                  May 24, 2010 at 5:09 pm

                  It would make more sense of the “want more,” its her way of saying that was fake, Eric. (even though we know better, ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

                  And in context of the roleplay, she is saying not just ‘want more proof’ that I can seduce RE, but also ‘want more action.’

                    May 24, 2010 at 5:20 pm

                    Well now. Remember my post on how this scene is either literally the BSS, or figuratively referencing it? Check this snippet from my BSS post:

                    She straddles his body to get better access and sucks the bullet out of his neck and spits it out.

                    But now she has gotten a taste of the blood that Lafayette found so intoxicating. Sheโ€™s breathless and aroused. She impatiently yanks the top of his shirt aside and greedily sucks at his nipple. Opportunistic Ericโ€™s hands do not remain idle- he brings them up and caresses Sookieโ€™s body, further stoking her lust. She retrieves the bullet and spits it out but she canโ€™t stop herself from going back for more. [at this point, Eric sees her arousal and seductively asks her: “Want more?”] To see Sookie willingly and lustfully going back for more of his blood is explosively exciting to Eric andโ€ฆperhapsโ€ฆhe orgasms, clutching her body tightly to his.

                    Think of it this way: this could very well be the ‘blue boxer’ scene from the books, but they are figuratively reenacting the BSS and instead of Eric orgasming in the present, we see flashes of the bss in which he became so aroused by her sucking his blood he came.

                      Sunny, you are such a good writer. ๐Ÿ™‚ Yes, I think it has all the mechanics of the that scene, both scenes really, Alcide playing the role of Bubba, but I’m not giving up on the blue boxers just yet. ๐Ÿ˜‰

                      VL and I have suggested Sookie is going to get branded, like how they show Debbie. So there may still be that injury for her to recover from.

        I wonder if after Sook talks to Bill, and he tells her to not try and find him, maybe he also tells her whatever AB’s version of the big bad will be.

        Then she says the hell with it, and decides to do Eric : )

          But… I suspect this is not a legitimate romantic encounter. Sookie is playing sexy and Eric is enjoying the view. I strongly doubt it will go any futher than what we’ve seen… which is a shame, because now all the air has been let out of that balloon.

          Still. If this is what they’re willing to show us, imagine what they’re NOT.

    May 24, 2010 at 1:16 am

    I have given this a lot of thought over the last two days and in giving it so much consideration and reading so many other POVs I have modified my views a little. I think there is only one Eric, but we see him through different eyes. AB shows us different aspects of him than we see in the books, but when I see TB Eric I don’t see a completely different character from Book Eric. In my mind, Book Eric is inside TB Eric, and I expect to gradually see more of Book Eric’s layers and characteristics being revealed on my TV as his interest in Sookie increases and changes from curiosity to concern and protectiveness and, if the show goes on that long, love. AB might be presenting the story differently in some ways, but I don’t think the main characters are essentially different. I hope I’m right, anyway.

    • 117 jsins
      May 24, 2010 at 1:32 am

      I try to see the same thing in the show but, I can’t lie, it worries me that TB Bill is so different and that they have given him many of the early great Eric moments.

    • May 24, 2010 at 1:34 am

      That’s my take on it, too. AB lets us see what Sookie doesn’t.

    • 120 LoveEric
      May 24, 2010 at 1:45 am

      I totally agree. TB Eric is for the people that haven’t read the books. It’s also to demonstrate how powerful and ruthless he is. Sookie never saw this side of Book Eric. Book Eric didn’t want her to see that side of him. TB Eric will change a little to show that he cares for Sookie. Next, he will bend a little more to show he likes her. Finally, it will be obvious that he loves her. Maybe they will skirt around the love thing FOREVER, just like in the books. We shall see. Bill needs to stop looking like a choir boy for TB Eric and Sookie move forward. That is what I am most concerned with.

Seems too good to be true though still, I’m thinking it is similar to the part at Russell’s where Bubba interrupted them. Although watching Sookie initiate this seems somewhat OOC.

Oh i hope it proves even more that it’s not a dream. I dont think it is but there is always that small doubt which makes me think it might be but now I’m feeling even more positive it is not.

    • May 24, 2010 at 8:45 am

      I know… we were talking about this one Twitter because of the gif that i put up on the svmu website… it’s the case of the disappearing re-appearing tissues. We thought maybe they were cos Sookie was having a cry about Beeellll being lost. If this scene is from Alcide’s apartment (and i think it is due to various other screen shots we’ve seen) then i think it’s from the first night in Jackson. But if that is the case, why would she jump him… ARGH!!! #waiting sucks!!!

      • 179 Dee
        May 24, 2010 at 9:10 am

        Yeah, I definitely think it was because she had been crying over Bill but like you said, I would think this was a different night than when Bill calls her. Unless, she still is crying I guess. Yeah, the sheets are the same from the Alcide/Sookie scene in the first trailer. I just hope this means it’s real, I would think the tissues would be absent in a fantasy haha.

    Did anyone else notice that during the HBO “Welcome Home” promo, there is a shot (at 1:06) of Eric’s car parked outside Sookie’s house IN THE DAYTIME?! Perhaps he left it there after the Were attack we see in the previews (when he and Sookie walk away down her driveway)? Or maybe he stayed overnight in the hidey-hole? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Also, am I mistaken that the meat statue is still on her lawn, standing up?! I thought Sookie knocked it down with her “electric” hand to help save Sam?

    • May 24, 2010 at 9:15 am

      I thought the same thing when I saw that.

      But it’s actually Maryanne’s car. We saw her in that red convertible at the end of S1.

      That shot is from the end of s2, before Sookie knocked down the meat tree, but after MA took up residence in the house.

        HOWEVER. That promo contains scenes from SEASON THREE.

    May 24, 2010 at 3:24 pm

    So the shot of Bill being ‘choked’, those look like Eric’s hands. They are massive enough to be. In fact, I’m positive they are his hands. That would mean he is restraining Bill for some reason, maybe because he is snacking on Sookie? hmm. He doesn’t seem to have blood on his lips, but he is panting. It could be the post trunk scene at Alcide’s apartment, after Debbie shows up where Bill and Sookie get into it.

    I like how Bill is representing all of douche-dom in that preppy polo. Way to bring it, Bill!

    This scene is real!!and probably after Bill’s call!!!
    Probably she just wanted to react and Eric didn’t expect this and eventyally she gonna stop herself…but this scene is real!!!

    A poster on the HBO site shares this theory– Sookie does not look like she was crying. I am thinking the place is Alcide’s apartment and it is after Bill tells Sookie not to look for him. I also think Alcide will interrupt this almost sex scene and tell Eric that his invitation is rescinded. This could be AB’s way to replace the scene at Russell’s where Bubba interrupts.

      She was crying…the bed is cover with Kleenex
      Here is the sequence http://i50.tinypic.com/21dr2h4.jpg

      Maybe she stop herself by doing a bad thing…i mean she is not liek Bill, she doesn’t cheat so if she stop herself or Alcide does i’m fine…in book 3 is Bubba but it’s ok….actually a i would like to see them while he helps her with his blood…but if that scene won’t happen and Eric goes deep with her by an emotional side as true affection i’m even more happy becouse his interest is not becouse of the blood!!

        Yes, there is clever editing going on here. No way would the tissues be not there, then there, and then gone again. It appears more is happening we won’t see until the episode airs. Though it does make me wonder where all those kleenex came from!

          I’m not 100 percent sure, but it looks like Eric is further down on the bed when the tissues appear, which means he was covering them… This def. a longer scene than presented.

        But if Bill tells her not to find him, and he doesnt want to be found, isnt that an indication that their relationship is over? Not saying Sookie should have sex with E but it wouldnt be cheating. That phone call is a dumping.

      I agree, its destined to be stopped by Alcide. I wrote about this yesterday/last night in another thread; its at the bottom of ‘And yet another promo…’

        Check out my post #93. I think the kleenex are symbolically referencing the orgasm Eric had in the ‘blue boxer’ scene, but figurative referencing the one he had during the BSS.

    Does anyone else find it funny that Eric is driving a Dodge Viper? Get it? He’s “dodging the viper (QSA” which is essentially what he’ll be doing in S3? Hahaha! This show is freaking hilarious!

    • May 25, 2010 at 9:48 pm

      I know it’s totally off topic here but i was talking with my car nut hubby. And he think one of the main reasons that Eric is moved to driving a Dodge Viper could come down to purely money. Every other car company in the States is in the Red, except for the guys that make Dodge. If the makers of Corvette or any other sport car maker were to pay to have there car in a show (and it’s product placement advertising) then the US Government could throw a fit.

      Also he says that when talking about cars you don’t talk about models but the makes. So he thinks the the Dodge part of the car is more importatn. Looking at what up put VL i’m think he is right there…

        They are too funny! They did something similar with the name of the club. I don’t know if you saw Angie’s comment in one of the other posts but she realized that the name of the club Lou Pines = Lupines (Werewolves). LOL ๐Ÿ™‚

    I think this scene at the beggining of the trailer 3 is very intriguing:

    Those definititely looks a lot like Eric’s hands… and Bill looks very, VERY distraught. He seems to be wearing an uniform (similar to the one Russell is wearing in some promos).

    • May 26, 2010 at 8:27 am

      here is a clear shot

        I know dazerose, I lightened it to take a better look at the hands, because IMO, they are definitely Eric’s.

    • May 26, 2010 at 8:30 am

      I was thinking this could have been after an attack on Sookie by Bill possible after Lorena final death (via Eric). Even though Bill’s fangs are down, there is no blood so i’m not sure where this one is at

      • 207 Gigi
        May 26, 2010 at 9:13 am

        Probably the scene must be related to the attack upon Sookie or the final death of Lorena. But what intrigues me is that somehow (maybe because he isn’t looking at Eric and because of the way Eric hand is over his shoulder) I got the feeling that Eric isn’t attacking or fighting him, but seems to be controlling him…

        • 208 Serena
          May 26, 2010 at 3:38 pm

          I think Eric is separating Bill from Sookie, maybe post trunk at Alcide’s apartment, the walls have a yellow twinge to it. (I think I wrote that before too, but I can’t remember where.. oh its further up. lol.)

      • May 26, 2010 at 10:32 am

        OK Gigi I have to say when I read your comment at first I was like WHAT?
        Then I looked at that pic some more, and it reminded me of something.

        Looking at the forearms and especially the hair, and the size of the hands in comparison to Bill’s….it DOES look like Eric’s hands.

    Just posted on TV Guide:

    Give me a good tease about True Blood’s new season. โ€” Holly
    MICKEY: Zeljko Ivanek (aka the best guest star of everything) returns as the Magister, and he’s cracking down on the illegal V trade in Louisiana. This is a problem for the Queen, since she’s tacitly allowing it, and for Eric and Pam, since they’re running it.


    LOL at “the best guest star of everything”.
    Fucking word.

    • May 26, 2010 at 10:50 am

      I would be putting this at about ep 10 or 11. Ep 10 is ‘I smell a Rat’ so we should find out who it is (Franklin, Yvette maybe) and and Magistrate in ep 11. Don’t know what the title of it is though… I really like the Magistrate, can’t wait

    • 212 sunnynala
      May 26, 2010 at 12:00 pm

      Bill is totally going to rat him out because he ‘came close’ to Sookie. (snicker)

    • 213 Gigi
      May 27, 2010 at 6:37 am

      In this scene of the trailer, he is definitely at Fangatasia and is seated on the new and improved hornless (pffft LOL) throne of Eric:

      Given the fact that the magister is cracking down on the illegal V trade in Louisiana, then, don’t SA/Eric/Pam have a legitime reason (like been tracking users-werewolves-witches, whataver) and have been selling V as drug dealers for real?

    OK, this trailer, and forgive me if this has been mentioned. At 25 seconds we get a shot of Eric on the bed. Directly after that at 26 seconds we get another shot of Eric on the bed. IT IS THE SAME SCENE, yet in the second shot there suddenly appears a bunch of crumpled kleenex that were completely absent in the first shot. I’m convinced this scene is some sort of mind-fuck for sure.

    • 215 Robin
      May 31, 2010 at 4:37 pm

      If this scene is a mind-fuck, what do you think AB has in mind? I would think if we see a shot with crumpled tissues, the shot would not be a dream sequence. Unless, that is the purpose. He wants us to think it is going to be a real scene, but it ends up being a dream sequence? Gah!

    • May 31, 2010 at 4:41 pm

      Sunny, I noticed the kleenex too. I think you are right, it is another AB mind-fuck.. I’m choosing to think that Eric is daydreaming (wishful thinking) maybe. These Ab tactics are getting REALLY tiresome.

      • 217 sunnynala
        May 31, 2010 at 4:46 pm

        IDK what is going on. I said above–and at my blog–that this scene is referring to the BSS, either literally or figuratively. The amazing crumpled kleenex is but a clue, I guess, but how it figures in is anyone’s guess.

        • May 31, 2010 at 4:52 pm

          You know, it wouldn’t surprise me in the least if these scenes didn’t even show up in the series when aired. That’s the kind crap AB would pull. I am really begining to hate that man.

          • 219 Robin
            May 31, 2010 at 8:42 pm

            Oh, I think the scene will show up. I think it is more likely it will be a dream sequence than anything. It would be interesting if it was Eric having that dream, and it was referring to the bullet sucking scene. It would be very cool if AB would prove any of the unreliable pov theories!

            • May 31, 2010 at 9:16 pm

              I just hope it’s not another Sookie’s dream. I’m really getting tired of them. IDK, my first thought was “it’s a dream”, but there are the kleenex, and it’s Alcide’s apartment, and… it’s too predictable.
              On the other hand, Eric shows no fangs. Pretty weird giving how erotic the scene is, isn’it? So it could be Sookie’s unconscious which tends to “humanize” Eric.

                May 31, 2010 at 9:25 pm

                I agree, enough with these dreams already. People are gonna start getting sick of them. That is why I am thinking that they showed this in the trailer because they expect us all to just think it is a dream. The fact that most people believe this just proves that. It would be more interesting and more shocking if it is real, and I would think AB would prefer to surprise us rather than just be predictable.

            • May 31, 2010 at 9:32 pm

              That kind of makes sense Robin. Eric having the memory/dream about the BSS. And you are right, it would be a cool way to prove the unreliable pov. It would also be a slight change of pace for the daydreaming. Eric having the memory/dream instead of Sookie. You’ve given me a teensy bit of hope for a interesting outcome. Lol.

                Bobsgran I think that is an interesting outcome as well and not at all unlikely. I hope we get many such glimpses inside Eric’s psyche.

                June 1, 2010 at 12:11 am

                Glad to have given you some hope. I am not so sure what to think about AB and his mindgames myself. Bobsgran (or anyone else), are you aware of any other unreliable povs theories that have been proven later in the series? Also, any ideas on which episode number the “want more” scene will be in? I am thinking it must be episode 3 or 4.

    Okay, I’m rethinking my original theory about Sookie and who she is shooting at in the promos. Originally, I was of the opinion that it was Eric jumping in front of a bullet for Sookie, but now I believe, because of what we’ve seen, that he is jumping in front of the bullet to save the were in order to question him. We know that Eric and Sookie are on the porch when he senses the were. We can guess that she gives him permission to enter her home and that he speedvamps inside, where there is a wolf lurking in the shadows, his teeth bared in a growl. What is likely to happen next is Sookie comes in behind Eric with the gun she received earlier from Terry, shoots at the wolf, and Eric, wanting to question the were about who sent him, jumps in front of the bullet. We could probably say that this will be the cliffhanger ending of epi. 2 and epi. 3 will pick up with the were, excited by the scent of vampire blood, shifting back to human form and attacking Eric, who eventually bites him on the neck and kills him.

    Another thing that made me come around to this new idea is a recent article about the wolves where it is mentioned that one of the wolf hybrids they use in a scene, where someone jumps in front of a bullet to save it, had to be dyed brown.
