Can we appreciate how even though Eric has totally lost his marbles he still apologizes to that poor boy for robbing him the memory of getting to second base?
Here’s Kristin getting all misty-eyed about the possibility of Eric getting killed off.
Remember - Kristin cries about literally everything. Do not read into it.
True Blood episode 6x09 synopsis - Life Matters
A desperate Bill (Stephen Moyer) tries to ferry Warlow (Rob Kazinsky) away from the faerie plain, but Sookie (Anna Paquin) is having none of it. Meanwhile, Eric (Alexander Skarsgård) arrives at vamp camp, looking to inflict serious human damage. In Bon Temps, friends and family take emotional turns remembering a fallen neighbor. Bill feels the pull of Lilith’s (Jessica Clark) sirens.
There will definitely be infliction, of…..damage.
In many ways, this season Alexander Skarsgård has turned in the best performances of his life as Eric. It’s sometimes hard to catch, though, as he has often moved in the shadows, playing for the background. Nonetheless, this season shows just how amazing and versatile an actor he can be.
My favorite bit is what I’ve come to call Undercover Eric. Twice this season, Eric has donned disguises to infiltrate the vampire concentration-camp network, first as a whooping-crane activist and then as a guard. Both times he has gone to amazing lengths to portray these almost laughable stereotypical characterizations, but he tints them all with his personal undercurrent of humor and menace that all his power still shines right out of the ruse.
It’s like he’s had to channel his joie de vivre through deadly espionage because the world has become so sad and dangerous it’s the only outlet. All that came crashing down this week as his beloved sister Nora succumbed to the government-engineered vampire plague Hepatitis V. It’s a heartbreaking scene where Eric recalls meeting her when she was a royal concubine who left the king to tend the sick in another plague.
All those wonderful facades Eric has been playing at this season come tumbling down as he holds her in his arms during her last minutes. It’s amazing to see something so horribly open, the stripping of all but the raw nerves alive with pain. Skarsgård has never been better than he was in this moment.
There are centuries of faith and love between us.
No, seriously though, Eric is gonna kill everyone.
Remember back in the beginning when all Eric did was lounge around on his throne and have sex with people and everything in his life was pretty fine and dandy and there was no pain?

Eric just adds “o” to everythingo when he wants to be humano.
