@ladybug: 100% agree. While I can see how conflict can drive a TV series, so far Ball has made Sophie Ann, MaryAnn, Lorena, Marnie, Queen Mab the major nasty characters. The only male “bad guy” has been Russell, who is bat sh*t crazy and almost endearing because of it. Next season, we’re likely to have an Eric/Bill bromance/buddy thing going on due to they’re being outlaws to the Authority even though they hate each other and Bill has gried to kill Eric several times, yet Pam hates Sookie even though she not only saved Eric at least three times, but also saved Pam at least once (and may have broken the rotting curse if death broke the spell as it did the forcefield spell). I call Bullsh*t, sorry. That just really t’s me off.

@Canuck:
I think he does, he took several pairs with him to NYC. Could be that he got a trim, but it’s probably from summer of last year.

@ladybug:
Could be the first time he went just for those couple of days in June was it?

@Canuck:
It’s pretty much the only thing that’s keeping me watching, though I’d rather download it and skip the other parts which is sad. There are a lot of casting calls for werewolves this season, so it looks like we’ll see more Alcide. Ugh! Joe M is so wooden. Also, apparently they’re making a sister for Eric and….groan, it’s Salome from the bible. WTF?! Ugh!

@Macy:
I read those too. Sounds terrible to me, the weres at least. Eric’s sister might be interesting, emphasis on the might, if they do it right.

@Macy: I didn’t read the casting call as Salome being Eric’s sister, I read it as two different characters. Nora is his sister:

Salome is actually mentioned in the books a couple of times, book 5 and later one in whatever book when the shifters/weres become public.

@ladybug:
It’s a stretch to make her from the bible I think but oh well. Also, I really hope Eric having a sister isn’t lame. I don’t have high hopes though, and for some reason I don’t like that she’s going to be a series regular. For some reason that makes me think it’s just a cheap replacement for Pam since Eric is banishing her.

@Camille: AS mentioned one in June, to San Diego, which seems to have been before the trip to Hawaii, which I think was June or very early July.

@Camille: Salome is from the Bible. As a child growing up in Chicago, we visited the Art Institute often. This was my favorite painting:

I’m presuming that Eric’s sister is the friends in high places in the AVL that was hinted at by both Bill and Nan Flanagan.

@ladybug:
Oh yes I know, I just meant making the Salome from TB from the bible. She wasn’t biblical in the books, was she? I don’t remember any biblical references in mentioning her. I think Nora might be the AVL person. It does mention she loves Eric a lot, but has taken her life in another direction. Maybe there will be some tension there if she’s supposed to punish him somehow?

Yes, I think he did go in early summer for a weekend to meet with Peter Berg. I remember him talking about it. Wasn’t that when he was photographed with Hot, Flat and Crowded too?

@Camille: Yes, in the books it’s the biblical Salome.
And the Hawaii trip was the Friedman book. Blech.

@ladybug:
Ah I must have missed that reference then. The sister thing throws me off though, Eric has the Russian prince brother but it’s Bill who has the sister if I remember correctly. I wonder if they’ll give Eric other children, since he had them in the books.
I remember that being a big deal, that he had that book. I’ve never read Friedman’s stuff, so I can’t comment but I know a lot of people think he’s a hack.

Oooh a new magazine cover for Alex. It’s a greek magazine. Is the picture from the Blackbook shoot maybe? His hair is quite short there.

I’m willing to bet that either the sister or Salome will be a love interest for Eric. Because of course, after a thousand years of not having feelings for anyone but his maker and child, he’s now going to have them willy nilly for other women. Bill of course, will not.

@Camille: He’s a hack. On a superficial level I agree with what he says, and he’s very big on emphasizing climate change. But he just wrong on so many levels.
And the Greek mag cover is from the Blackbook shoot, like the Out cover was from the InStyle shoot.
Canuck, on the book he has a ‘brother’, but of course AB would change that.

@ladybug: True, and a Romanoff to boot! But that plotline sailed once Ocella became Godric. As for Freidman, he’s no idiot at least from the one book of his that I read (From Beriut to Jerusalem) but boy oh boy, did he ever have an agenda and that made about half of it intellectually dishonest.

@Canuck: He’s coasted since FBTJ. And he has an agenda. But there was also his complete support of the Iraq invasion, just because he wanted to invade a county.

@ladybug: I know, although that also fits into the same agenda. He and Judith Miller… Propoganda puppets.

@Canuck:
You’re probably right, Bill will be the martyr. Though, he did sleep with several women while Sookie was in Faery and we never got that sense with Eric. I was actually quite surprised about that. I was also surprised that AB allowed it that Bill thought she was dead, and Eric knew she wasn’t. Interesting turn there.

@ladybug:
I though so. I went back and looked at the photo. I couldn’t see where he’d have done another shoot. We probably would have heard about it through twitter and whatnot.

@Camille: Quite a few bloggers got the impression (I think an accurate one) that Eric had been staying at Sookie’s house, waiting for her.
Admittedly, some of Bill’s behavior was probably an act, in the sense it was to pretend he was over her and being all King Bill-ish.
I think you are correct, if he’d done the reshoots last week we’d have heard/seen something from someone on set. He’s been able to spend the last week not being papped, tweeted or found by fans. A rare occurrence for him, these days.

@ladybug:
I think that’s accurate also, seeing as there was the blood in the fridge and he’d made his chamber. Kind of sweet that he was there waiting for her, even if it was for the reason of claiming her to be his.
I’m glad he’s gotten away from prying eyes these last couple of weeks. Even if we did see a few pics of him in Rio, it sounds like people there generally respected his space and left him alone. I read a fan report stating he was only approached twice outside the hotel, and just for a few minutes from a small amount of people (like 10). Quite a difference than the disgusting mob for Disconnect.

@ladybug: I don’t know about him staying there waiting for her. He couldn’t have been staying there the night she came back, otherwise he would have made his appearance before Bill showed up. Plus with workmen in and out of the house during the day, it wouldn’t have really been a very safe place to stay. And… he sent her the microwave (to heat blood) for her house only after she got back. I really liked that he still had her POS car parked in the driveway, waiting for her since we know book Eric would have replaced it or at least had all of the mechanics rebuilt, I really liked that he kept and restored her Grandmother’s furniture, but I can’t see him actually dying for the day there so long as there were still people working in the house.

@Camille: Bill also seemed like he had, if not a relationship, a regular thing going with the Security lady. And of course, meeting the Grandmother of your current lover would imply an intent of establishing a real relationship.

@Canuck:
Exactly, that part surprised me since I’d fully expect AB to make Bill sit around and pine for her since he supposedly loves her more than Eric. It was surprising that wasn’t the case. Eric felt her on some level, and either Bill didn’t, or he chose to push that away and to me that says something about his character.

@Canuck: I don’t think he was there all the time, especially in the beginning. And the safety thing is a point. However, he could have had the cubby done and that room done, and then he could have glamored the workers to forget about that being built (and perhaps a suggestion to not look too closely at that closet).
Perhaps this is something that will be explained in the dvd commentaries.

@Camille: I kind of think that Eric just has far more experience, and doesn’t lie to himself. Even if he hides what he’s feeling. When Sookie landed in the cemetary, Bill awoke surprised, Eric awoke not surprised at all. Could be that Bill hadn’t ever given his blood before, therefore had no landmarks and thought the worst because he had no other explaination for it. Eric on t he other hand, probably knew that right before a bond winks out of existence you would feel panic, fear, determination, resignation… something.
