Tuesday's Goodies for Truebies

Teeny bit on the next episode from Matt at TVLINE
 One of the Sookie Stackhouse novels’ most famous scenes at long last makes it to the small screen. It involves a guy, a girl, and a shower (sort of).
From Eonline's Kristin
Bb123: Dying for some True Blood…especially on Jessica dying. Is she still alive?I believe so, yes. I'm told that we'll soon see her inside the witch store with Fiona Shaw, watching Bill (Stephen Moyer) out in front doing something very bad. Like, you know, life or death kind of bad. Oh…I'll just come right out with it: Bill kills someone! Or, more accurately (not grammatically though) is that Bill kills someones. As in plural. Also hearing that Tara (Rutina Wesley) somehow injures her arm, and Jason (Ryan Kwanten) will be packing (up) something other than heat. Lots of good stuff coming up.

HBO's Interview with Alexander Skarsgard
Alexander Skarsgard Explores Erics Sensitive Side  and His Latest Romp With Sookie

Fans have been dying for Eric and Sookie to hook up - what kinds of reactions have you been hearing now that it's finally happened?
Alexander Skarsgard
I know that people have been talking about it - but I try to stay away from the blogs and fan sites. I'm a little scared ... I do meet fans in person, though, and the feedback has been great this year. It seems that people are enjoying Eric's arc, which is great because I had a blast shooting it. I love playing "Amnesia Eric." It's just such a different side of him, and it's always fun as actor to dig deeper. You learn a lot, and I definitely have this year.

Is it difficult to play a person-within-a-person?
Alexander Skarsgard
I wanted to make sure that it was a side of Eric - not a new character. The side of him that was hidden. He's very innocent and naive now, but I also thought it was very important not to lose the old Eric - the predator - and the element of danger there. You've got to feel that to make it interesting, I think, and it's something I focused on. You definitely see how he can get very violent, especially in those moments where he's protective of Sookie.

In this week's episode, "Cold Grey Light of Dawn," there's a drawn-out, multi-location love scene between Sookie and Eric. Was that the most involved one you've shot so far?
Alexander Skarsgard
It's up there. I've done some stuff in other movies as well that's pretty graphic ... But these were definitely some pretty intense scenes. We were kind of all over the place. But my favorite scene is yet to come ...

Alcide gets a deflating dose of Sookie and Eric's intimacy in this episode. Do you think the werewolf has any chance at a future with Sookie?
Alexander Skarsgard
No. I don't think she's interested in dogs.

This season, it seems that fans are even more attracted to innocent, sweet Eric than they are to dark, mysterious Eric. Any idea why that is?
Alexander Skarsgard
I think it's a point of contrast - that they're seeing something open and vulnerable, someone who's willing to connect on a deeper level. Old Eric was very guarded and wouldn't let himself do that, so I think his sensitivity has been interesting. He lets people in for the first time in a very long time, and that's definitely something new. I'm just really grateful that people respond to him and his relationship with Sookie. It's great to play this other side of him that's been hidden for almost a thousand years.

                                             Check them all out at the link above My over used Halloween video is SpellBound, from Siouxie and The Banshees- I'll keep posting Rhoswen7's episode spoilers as we count down to the finale Episode #44 (#4.08): “Spellbound”: As Bill and Marnie brace for a dangerous midnight face-off, Sookie and Eric pledge their allegiance to the King.

The singing ghost better not harm Lala, I was hoping she was  a good spirit from back in the day (an Anne Rice's Feast of All Saints type of character, btw I love that book). Who is Scrappy Doo going to slip into now? Sam has way better hair than greasy Marcus, and he can shift into something bigger and meaner than a wolf. Episode #45 (#4.09): “Run”: Convalescing after her latest near-death trauma, Sookie envisions a world where there’s room for both Bill and Eric.
