Go nuts.

And I’m posting these because I guess someone might find them sexy…or just funny…like I do.

But really, Alan. Of all the man-on-man you could have done?


Pennydreadful thinks Sam and Bill’s love-in might play out something like this….

Bill: I find myself strangely in the grip of a powerful homoerotic attraction to you, Mr. Merlotte. Might I call on you sometime?
Sam: (with innocent bewilderment) Call on me?
Bill: Yes, might I visit with you at your home…so that we may engage in physical congress?
Sam: (still confused) Physical congress? I’m confused…I didn’t think you vampires had the right to vote.
Bill: I was asking if we might enjoy the sweet forbidden bliss of coitus together…
Sam: Dammit, Bill…stop using all those high falutin Victorian euphemisms. Anyone would think you’ve been cryogenically frozen for the past 150 years. Now what exactly do you want?
Bill: Hot sweaty mansex in your trailer?
Sam: (pauses) Oh hell…sure why not. You can come back to my place but if you tell that I have a “lovely home” you’re going to get a nasty introduction to Mr. Stake…

      OK. I’ve settled down. That was a surprise and a bit of a shock. My reaction: nice arse, nice shoulders, silly hair. I’ve already seen Bill and Sam nekkid so no surprises there, and no lusty thoughts either.

    Sam and Bill getting it on. :O I’m a straight guy and I have no problem with Alan Ball showing gay characters and gay scenes because it is related to the plot. But I really am worried that the show will lose out on many of its straight male fanbase who may abandon it with all these slashy scenes promised between the characters of Bill, Sam, Eric, Lafayette, Jesus, Talbot and Russell.

    I know Pam is entering a lesbian relationship too. Oh I wonder if her and Jessica will have a fling. That would be HOT…but it would seem kind of desperate to get ratings too. It would kind of make sense, Jessica being a newborn vampire and so animalistic in her desires.

      well i think there should will be enough for the male audience to stay interested, Jasons suppose to be in a 3some with 2 girls, there has been plenty of female nudity for ratings sake in season 2. Theres always the playboy channel if you dont want to watch, tehe

        May 27, 2010 at 12:10 am

        Haha Liz, as I said already, it’s not a problem with me, I can easily sit through scenes of naked men and gay sex because I have Anna Paquin, Deborah Ann Woll, Rutina Wesley and Mariana Klaveno to drool over. I just know some of my friends will be uncomfortable with the amount of gay scenes expected for this series and I hope it doesn’t turn people of. But you’re right of course – there’s always a good amount of female nudity equalled to the amount of male eye candy in the show.

          The gay relationships were not graphically portrayed in CH books (that I can remember), but I’ll most likely fast forward through them this TB season, especially if I want my husband to watch TB with me. He was real turned off by the gay-themed scenes in Glee, and wouldn’t watch the rest of the season with me.

          • 13 Dee
            May 27, 2010 at 3:02 am

            Well it’s Sookies POV on the books so unless she was watching two men get it on then we wouldn’t graphically hear about it. But it’s mentioned in the books, we know in book 3 Eric has a hickey while in the mansion to help sookie get out of there. Then Eric later on speaks about his maker Appius, and speaks about this. Russell in the books was gay and a mansion full of men. Pam was bi and had a sexual relationship with Amelia. QSA had a relationship with Hadley. I’m sure I might be forgetting some. So it was a part of the books but again unless someone described everything they did to sookie or she was watching we wouldn’t hear about it. Look at Jason on the show and how much sex he has, we know he gets a lot of women from the books but we dont get details.

              May 27, 2010 at 3:12 am

              You’re right, of course. All we get is Sookie’s POV in the books. TB is able to graphically explore every and any relationship they want.

                May 27, 2010 at 4:14 am

                Sookie has seen just about every sort of sexual activity, in the minds of people she’s served at Merlotte’s. Sookie will have “seen” a lot of what the vampires have been up to, too, through the minds of the humans they have been with and that includes Pam, through Amelia.

                  May 27, 2010 at 5:08 am

                  Great point. 🙂 And TB has visually portrayed some of those scenes, like the one in Season 1 where Sookie “sees” Rene killing his sister, and the other women.

    • 17 Dee
      May 26, 2010 at 11:25 pm

      Sean-this is my worry too. Now while I don’t mind it, I hope the straight male audience won’t think it’s a bit too much since we will see a lot of it, but hope not. Hopefully all the other action on the show will make up for it, i dont mean sex action but violence action lol

      May 27, 2010 at 3:23 am

      Call me an unrepentant perv but I have NO problem watching gorgeous people (regardless of gender and/or orientation) having lots of consensual fun sexytimes. I think it certainly says a lot about our cultural values that certain members of the audience can watch the vicious brutality, savage cruelty, and senseless sadism in a scene like “Hardhearted Hannah” and not bat an eye. “But that was necessary to the storyline!” they will argue and rightly so, because it was. Yet, if there is a same-gendered sex scene that is vital to the plot and character development…suddenly those same people are disgusted and outraged.

      Also I wouldn’t necessarily characterize the slashy scenes as “gay.” I’m not sure that standard sexual orientation applies to vampires in the way that it does to humans. By definition, vamps are transgressive creatures with an insatiable appetite for both sex and blood. While they may primarily maintain the orientation they had while alive, I think they’re quite open minded about how they have their desires met. Much in the same way that when I sit down to eat a steak dinner, I couldn’t care less whether my rib eye comes from a male or a female cow.

      • 19 Dee
        May 27, 2010 at 3:35 am

        Penny, I really hope most of the audience will accept it and I agree lol. It’s ok to watch people getting killed and a bunch of orgies but not same sex. Actually, I shouldn’t even same sex because I’m sure people won’t have a problem if lets say we saw a Pam/Jessica scene getting it on or any other 2 female characters. Plus they are vampires and they are sexually adventurous, this is something common in many vampire stories so shouldn’t be a surprise. I think most will accept it, if you’re watching TB then most of the audience i would say is pretty open to begin with.

    As a shameless and unapologetic Godricbanger, I was desperately hoping for some “slashed for our viewing enjoyment” Godric/Eric fun times.. Oh well, I guess I’ll just have to settle for what I can get.

    As for the Bill/Sam dream sequence, why do I imagine it playing out like this:

    Bill: I find myself strangely in the grip of a powerful homoerotic attraction to you, Mr. Merlott. Might I call on you sometime?
    Sam: (with innocent bewilderment) Call on me?
    Bill: Yes, might I visit with you at your home…so that we may engage in physical congress?
    Sam: (still confused) Physical congress? I’m confused…I didn’t think you vampires had the right to vote.
    Bill: I was asking if we might enjoy the sweet forbidden bliss of coitus together…
    Sam: Dammit, Bill…stop using all those high falutin Victorian euphemisms. Anyone would think you’ve been cryogenically frozen for the past 150 years. Now what exactly do you want?
    Bill: Hot sweaty mansex in your trailer?
    Sam: (pauses) Oh hell…sure why not. You can come back to my place but if you tell that I have a “lovely home” you’re going to get a nasty introduction to Mr. Stake…

At least get a $100.00 hair cut w some highlights. AB has turned my fantasy viking into nothing but a hot financial auditor. At least my BF is happy.

        • May 27, 2010 at 12:24 am

          That was different though. He wasn’t having a blood induced dream, that was a genuine garden variety nightmare. It happened a while after he’d had Eddie’s blood.

          There also seems to be something going on about drinking the blood directly from the source. All the sex dreams, and suppressed attraction has occurred in humans who have drunk blood directly from the vampire – Sam, Sookie, and Lafayette.

                      Well with Eric they all seem to be more of the romantic nature, more intimate. All of the other “sex dreams” that we have seen have been just that, sex dreams. And, I am just wondering why it is different for Sookie.

                    • May 27, 2010 at 1:08 am

                      I think they just used those two scenes of her masturbating instead of actually showing a sex dream.

                      The intention is the same – show the viewer that Bill’s blood made her horny. That’s what those scenes are telling us.

                  • May 27, 2010 at 4:18 am

                    Sookie had two romantic dreams about Bill. I think the one where she misread him, and he just wanted to feed was the first night they met. The second was definitely after she had his blood. She ran to his house in a white nightie, and he went down on her.

                    Only in your dreams, Sookie dear.

              Well, I don’t know if I would call her first Bill dream a true sex dream. She walks out onto her front lawn, and in reply to her Bill says “Oh, I’m not here to have sex with you.” which is rather prophetic.

              • 99 pennydreadful
                May 27, 2010 at 12:58 am

                You have a point there. Her first Bill dream wasn’t under the influence of blood. She said something to the effect of: “I never thought I’d be having sex with you…at least not so soon.” Then Bill menacingly bares his fangs and snarls, “Who said anything about sex?” I’ve always interpreted that scene as Sookie’s subconscious warning her about Bill’s *real* motives.

                • May 27, 2010 at 1:05 am

                  Yep. That dream was Sookie’s subconscious. Telling her to pick her ass up and RUN.

                  The horny dreams (or more specifically the feeling herself up on Bill’s porch in broad daylight and in front of the cat) didn’t start until she’d had his blood – in quantity – after the Rattrays.

                  May 27, 2010 at 1:09 am

                  This happened before she even had his blood, this was after she met him, and supposedly saved him the night he was being drained by the Ratts. She did have one other sexual dream after she had his blood though.

                  May 27, 2010 at 4:43 pm

                  The other thing about that dream is that it centred on Bill being a vampire, I think whatever vampire she had met she would have had the same dream about THAT vampire. It wasn’t an attraction to Bill but an attraction to a vampire.

            So by extension, someone who buys QSA’s blood won’t be having sexy dreams of her? I hope they explain these stupid blood rules soon.

            • May 27, 2010 at 12:48 am

              That’s right. As far as I can tell.

                And with Russell’s Weres, if he is feeding them directly they should be having ’em but I have a hard time seeing the F*ck You Crew having sex dreams about RE. So maybe he is handing out vials? Ugh.

                There has to be more to this arbitrary rule, it has to be magnifying the feelings not causing them. I think Bill lied again. He probably already knew how she felt with his Sookiedar, and didn’t want her to understand her own feelings.

                Dee, Laffy could just be not telling the truth or be self- deluding. (How could he not be attracted to Eric?) 😉

              Yeah has to be straight from the source I think, even in books I got that impression.

              As far as the dreams, it seems like yes you’ll have dreams even if you don’t have any prior attraction to the person. However, once youre awake though and not dreaming it does seem different though. Lafayette said he had amazing freaky dreams of Eric but he said he hated him. So while it made him have sex dreams of him, it didn’t make him want Eric when he wasn’t dreaming. I’m sure we’ll see the same with Sam lol. yes, he might have sex dreams about Bill but this won’t make him want him lol.

              But then Bill says “don’t be surprised if you feel an attraction towards Eric” which goes against what we’ve seen though if you think about it. This would apply to Laf but it’s obvious that Laf doesn’t want Eric. So does the blood just make you have sex dreams? did Bill say that to make her think her attraction would be just because of the blood? TB better get it straight lol

                [did Bill say that to make her think her attraction would be just because of the blood?]

                Interesting comment, Dee! Maybe Bill could already sense that she was attracted to Eric, and he told her that so she could blame it on his blood.

                Yeah, there is a reason that her dreams about Eric are more romantic and intimate in nature than the dreams Lafayette and Sam are having, or even her dreams about Bill.

                Or perhaps he is just feeding Sookie a line of BS so that she will try to discount her budding attraction to Eric?

                May 27, 2010 at 1:24 am

                For some reason, when Laffy said he had freaky sex dreams with Eris, I assumed there was a subconscious attraction towards Eric.

                • 114 Dee
                  May 27, 2010 at 1:33 am

                  Laf might think that Eric looks good but I don’t think he wants him, he seems pretty terrified of him at this point. Definitely doesn’t want something more with him. So if Sookie is gonna want Eric this season, it won’t be because she has had his blood.

                  May 27, 2010 at 1:36 am

                  Yeah I think so too.

                  As for Sam, I thought I read something we were going to find out more about his past growing up on the streets, and that had an effect on his dream. So he might have already had a subconscious thing for Bill..

                    Really? wow that is interesting. I think in the casting call for episode 10, there were ppl being cast from sam’s past, hustlers or something like that.

                      Here I found a snippet, “Trammell also mentioned flashback sequences involving Merlotte’s rough childhood on the streets after his adopted parents abandoned him. “There’s some flashbacks to my past, and how I was able to stay afloat as a teenager on the streets, and some of the things I had to do. We really get deep. It’s really good.” He said, but did not elaborate.”

                      I think there may have been another interview that more explicitly linked his past to this scene but I can’t find it.

                      I just had a little freak out moment, what if they are giving Sam some of Quinn’s backstory, fighting in the pits, and they don’t plan to bring in Quinn?

                      Wasn’t there something about dog-fighting in the casting calls?

                From what I’ve been able to logically piece together, the blood exchange rules seem to be:
                1. One must drink directly from the source.
                2. Consuming the blood will increase the recipient’s libido and cause sexual dreams staring the donor.
                3. The donor will be able to feel what the recipient is feeling and know where he or she is at all times.
                4. The blood exchange cannot force the recipient to fall in love with the donor. (Unless of course, in S3 we see Sam picking out a tasteful china pattern in the hopes that Bill pops the question to him.)

                However, that being said…if a vamp had a nefarious plan to seduce a certain naive and sheltered human, having an insight into her emotional state would be really advantageous to that end 😉

                  Penny, I agree completely and seems like this is what TB has established at least up until now this is all we know. They better not try to tell us any different now because there are viewers who pay attention and will call them on it.

                In the s2 Blu-ray, during ‘Scratches’ Pam says Eric’s blood would make Sookie ‘more drawn’ to him.

    As soon as I saw the ASkars ass, my first thought was he does justice to the naked book Eric – well at least the parts we can see. The Bill and Sam thing is just awkward. I can only imagine how Sam’s going to react to having sex dreams / fantasies about Bill! And, Penny, that convo is priceless! It will make it all worth it if their convo really goes like that…

    OK….i hate the fact that blood creates dream or horny fantasy….but AB did it with Eric in S2..so after all the bad things that people said to the writes at Wrotes Concention last year they fix it in this way, with even Sam having hot dream!!!!
    I may not like it ok….but at least Bill is a liar now….and everybody knows….so i’m fine with this and i’m doing an happy dance for that!!!!

      I am also re watching season 1 and this is ot but the most disturbing thing so far has been the grave yard scene. Really he was naked and covered with dirt. That is just gross I mean dirt in your vagina is in now way a good thing. EWWWWWWWW. Well that and Bill is such a douche.

            After another look, I agree with you, Hime. The second shot appears to be the one where he’s walking towards her and the third is a shot of him standing there after she has gone.

            • 148 millarca21
              May 28, 2010 at 6:32 am

              Just a theory, but I have a feeling that ASkars was not actually standing in front of AP naked as a jaybird when she was up close to him talking to him in that scene. I think when she was there he had pants on, and the scene was shot with him alone and then with the two of them, with some clever editing. This would also explain why she was able to remain upright and able to remember and speak her lines.

                May 28, 2010 at 8:46 am

                And even if he wasn’t wearing pants, he likely was wearing the “modesty sock”, even if it’s not his thing. I mean, I don’t see him doing his scenes completely in the buff.

    For the blood rules, can I suggest that the vampire still has to be alive? Sookie must have downed a lot of Longshadow’s blood since he kind of popped all over her in S1, but we’ve never seen her have any dreams about him.

    Also would drinking from the source have to be in quantity? Amy and Jason had a drop from Eddie and weren’t affected by Eddie sex dreams. I know Jason had that dream in S2, but it wasn’t sex so much as conflicted guilt. Of course Sookie didn’t have huge quantities from Eric since she was spitting out most of it so maybe she didn’t need as much since he is older. Then on that topic, why wasn’t Sookie in a drug-induced haze by sipping on Eric?

    I can understand her not being affected after Bill’s blood since she was injured both times, and Lafayette didn’t go into a drug induce haze after Eric healed him since he was injured. Yet Sookie wasn’t injured when she had Eric’s blood. I guess that will be explained away by Sookie’s fairy connection?

    Oops. I forgot about the Bill/Sookie sex scene when he spit blood into her mouth, unless it was her blood? If it was his, then no reaction but again I guess it’s her fairy blood neutralizing the affect?

    Sorry. I find TB’s blood rules rather perplexing, and I think I just gave myself a headache.

    • 152 millarca21
      May 27, 2010 at 9:45 am

      It is headache-inducing stuff, isn’t it.

      What is it in vampire blood that increases human libido and causes them to have the sex dreams? What is it that enables the vampire to be able to trace the human and sense their feelings? Does it contain little tracer markers that burrow into the human body and remain after the blood is digested and excreted, to transmit signals to the vampire? Like a mini epirb…..vpirb? And, if so, why?

      Perhaps the sex dreams have more to do with fancying the vampire whose blood you are sucking on, or are a psychological consequence of engaging in the intimate act of drawing on the vampire’s life force direct from their body, rather than any physiologal effect from the blood. But V is known to have healing qualities, and to be halucinogenic. If the healing qualities work on Sookie, why don’t the other qualities? If one drop of V could affect Jason so strongly, how could a significantly larger quantity of Eric’s powerful, 1,000 year old blood not send his sister off on a Magical Mystery Tour?

      Plot-eating bacteria, perhaps?

      Bill regurgitated Sookie’s own blood into her mouth, so that doesn’t count. Sexy, wasn’t it!

    • 153 ESFAN08
      May 27, 2010 at 3:11 pm

      I’ve thought alot about this to, an i do think AB needs to somehow explain all this cuz its getting confusing. However Lafayette explained to Jason when he first started doing V that every Vampire’s Blood will have a different effect on you. So one Person might be effected the way Jason an Amy were with Hallucinations an stuff, an the other like Lafayette who didn’t seem to have any Hallucinations except just all around feeling really good. Lafayette was effected by Eric’s Blood he begin to feel really good, an was dancing all over the place lol. However Sookie having ingested Bill/Longshadow/Eric’s Blood never has seemed to have any of the Drug inducing effects, an neither did Sam when he took Bill’s Blood. So my guess would be since Sookie an Sam aren’t entirely Human they dont have the Drug induced effects the way a Human would. Jason is part Fae to, but i remember AB saying something about genetics as to the reason why Jason could be controlled by Mary Ann an Sookie couldn’t. Also in the Books even Sookie has the essential Fae spark, but Jason an Hadley didn’t, so all they got out of being part Fae was the good looks, an having People drawn to them. The same went for Sookie’s Father he was more Fae then Sookie yet didn’t have the essential Fae spark, an it was mentioned how drawn Sookie’s Mother was to her Father to the point of paying more attention to him then her Children. So genetics plays a rol,e an it seems to skip since Sookie has it, but everyone else didn’t. So thats my take on it hopefully thats the case otherwise i dont get it lol.

    Okay, here’s my little theory about the pics of Eric. The first shot is when he’s busted by Sookie coming down the stairs. The next two shots are right after she’s left. You can see in the second one that he’s looking up as if watching her go and the next shot is him stepping forward to follow, having completely forgotten about Yvetta hanging there. She’s probably going to call attention to the fact that she’s still tied up, and he’ll set her free, but I think he has been distracted by Sookie and abandons his playtime.

    • 156 Lotus
      May 27, 2010 at 12:18 pm

      Or, after looking at it again, the second shot is him walking towards Sookie, who is already at the bottom of the stairs and not in the still, and the third shot is him standing there after she’s left. Either way, I imagine he’s no longer going to be interested in continuing the session.
