“I can protect you – or have passionate, primal sex with you…”

Well, NO WONDER Sookie was looking so fucking stupefied when she issued that invitation.

Quite obviously, she was floundering her way back to sanity through a swamp of lust ;).

Holy mother of HOT VIKINGS, she is not the only one.

Poor Sookie. Honey, you just don’t have a hope.

                LOL I was starting to feel that way too until Legalease told me that in Ep 1 Eric tries to give Sookie more money than they had agreed upon for the job she did in Dallas. Apparently Pam goes over to Sookie’s house to drop off the check. We were thinking this was the start of him trying to give her things/gifts.

                Legalease says she invites Pam in with no problem. LOL I’m sure we all know now why Sookie hesitates to invite Eric in. She doesn’t trust herself and I wouldn’t trust myself either. I don’t know how she’s able to resist him. lol

                  I just squealed. Out loud. Serious fangirling going on right about now!

                  Loving that Sookie invites Pam inside but hesitates with Eric. One of my favorite pairings from the books has been Sookie and Pam, and I’m really excited to see their relationship development on the show. Not sure how much we’ll get of it this year but by season 4 …

                  ohmigosh, I’m so excited. I may need a glass of wine so I can get some sleep, lol.

                  To be honest, I’m not sure if she gives Pam a hard time or not before letting her in. I just know that she does come inside because, from one of the articles I read, Pam in typical Pam fashion snarks about Maryann’s decorating skills! I am definitely looking forward to this and Sookie’s reaction to getting the extra dough!

          Have you seen that wonderful black lace dress that Lorena is wearing in one of the photos? Compared to Sookie’s usual wardrobe, Lorena definitely has a better sartorial influence! Sorry, Sook, but it’s the truth!

          • 31 VikingLover
            June 13, 2010 at 2:09 am

            Oh yes, I loved that dress! Lorena looks fantastic there. Actually, I’ve loved all of her outfits. I especially loved the green dress she wears in the “Release Me” ep. I also loved Isabel’s outfits as well.

            June 13, 2010 at 10:40 am

            Lorena is definitely the better dressed, but one of Sookie’s flaws was always her small town taste in clothing.

    • 41 SusanMy
      June 13, 2010 at 2:34 am

      Yeah–that was the most glaring “Suckie” I’ve heard since season 1. It wasn’t even in that borderline “Sookeh” territory. Russell, however, pronounces it beautifully.

      Also, the Viking on the porch? Holy crap, what a gorgeous hunk of thing. Sookie, girl, you should be all over that like a wet tee-shirt.

          • June 13, 2010 at 10:03 am

            Maybe that is the reason why Talbot gets staked…. Sookie makes a comment about bill’s change in wardrobe, and Talbot takes it as a insult…

            On that video….just WOW!!! Mr Northman, you are just so fine…. i can’t wait!!! (i hope it goes up asap for dl… or does anyone know where i can stream it??)

    So jealous of all of you who are going to watch it tonight.

    Do you think itunes will have the episode up for sale soon? Otherwise i’m going to have to stay away from this blog….and it has become a daily ritual (ok maybe more than once a day) of mine- i might suffer from withdrawal symptoms.

    I have a feeling there is something BIG we are all missing thats going to happen this season. All the promos tend to be directed towards one direction and story line….i think there is something they arent telling us- or at least i am hoping that i get massively surprised by something.
    Maybe its with the reveal of what Sookie is…has anyone seen whats happening with Claudine?

    • 61 Kathy
      June 13, 2010 at 3:12 am

        Hey Guys, just an FYI: You cannot post torrents in here since SVB could get into quite a bit of trouble. Sorry Kat! I’m sure you can find the eps on iTunes once they air on HBO.

        • June 13, 2010 at 4:59 am

          wait, they will be on itunes for reals? for rent, or for purchase too?

          i had to wait until season 2 was released on DVD to buy the episodes i wanted for my ipod, but i didn’t actually start watching TB at all until after last season ended so i have no idea if you can rent them during the season or not o.o

        • 64 Kat

        But does anyone know if the episodes will be available to buy anywhere?

        They showed series 1 and 2 in the part of the world where I live but there has been no mention of series 3 on TV and I really would love to be able to see the episodes any other way?

      June 13, 2010 at 7:59 am

      Ah, I’m in the same boat as you, Kat. I’m really hoping iTunes comes through for us poor wretches without access to HBO. If not, I too must give up my Sookieverse blog habit, and that will make me very cranky!

      • 67 Pat
        June 13, 2010 at 8:05 am

        You could buy a series pass (around $20) or each episode individually ($1.89) on iTunes for season 2 but there is no information on season 3 :(((

        Does anyone know what the time lag was between the episodes on TV and becoming available on iTunes for season 2?

        • 68 Kat
          June 13, 2010 at 9:09 am

            10 months??! I might as well wait and just buy it when it comes out on DVD!

            I am usually very well behaved about dowloading stuff only when it’s legal but I might have to open an exception for TB! There is no way I can wait that long to see Eric!!! and the rest of the cast… of course… πŸ˜‰

              Yes. IMO it is absurd and defies logic to expect that people outside the USA should have to wait to get these shows. We all have access to the advertising hype and get worked up and excited about the show and to not allow us to have access at the same time is not only cruel and discriminatory but just plain stupid. They should not expect us to be happy to wait, and should not complain when we find ways around their archaic rules. I would be happy to pay to see it, I think that’s only fair, but I’m not going to be stuffed arounmd and treated like a second or third class viewer if I can find a way around it.

      You can check itunes, they have TB on there but not sure when they’ll start with S3, if it will be right away. Not sure how much it costs though per episode. If you’re in the US, it actually comes out cheaper to pay the $10 a month for HBO than probably what the episodes cost.

      There are also torrents you can check online.

    • June 13, 2010 at 5:05 am

      if you have a livejournal sometimes links are posted in the TB comms…

      and i don’t know how much renting costs, but I paid $2.99 for the episodes i got on itunes.

    • 86 Pat

          June 13, 2010 at 9:32 am

          Yes, I am almost sure it’s Bill and it kind of makes sense, it seems to be the answer to “Poor Sookie, shame she has to pay the price for your stubbornness” right at the begining of the clip?

    June 13, 2010 at 9:41 am

    I think most likely you’re right, but he seemed thoughtful in that image of him wearing that tuxedo, so either that image or that line of his, appear to belong to a different scene. Anyway, as it is Bill, it’s not really important. I guess. It would have been a different story, if it was E who said that… πŸ™‚

    Hey guys! NO HBO for me, so I’m depending on updates and comments. Also, this competition was posted on Twitter. It’s a donation cause for the Gulf Coast with a twist. It’s Team Eric vs. Team Bill. If enough donations are made to Alex’s side, Stephen Moyer has to wear a little t-shirt with “Mrs. Skarsgard” on it. It’s a great cause and the t-shirt alone sealed the deal for me. LET’S GO TEAM ERIC!!!
