    IT SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    ITS LIKE SOOKIE AND ERIC’S growing feelings on season 1-3 and the romance on season 4 never happened.
    The writers of TB completely ignore it. If they are not going to end up together at least give us some Closure between these two

  • egp

    Well Eric looks yummy, at least.
    Now that AB is gone, hopefully it might get better, as he can concentrate on Banshee (which incidentally, is pretty good) and leave his TB Bill fetish just be. I don’t think there will be any Eric/Soookie resolution until the last season, whensoever that might be. They know Eric is the biggest draw and they’re going to milk it for all they can.

  • Strange

    I am for one not impressed . What is going on with Eric & Sookie not being together . She is making out with Ben on the sofa . I don’t get the writers on the show .

  • egp

    I must say, I really detest all the fairy crap they’ve unloaded and will unload on us. Good grief.

  • Music Fan

    This show story line is going south since after season 3. I mean seriously… Thank God AS is still there…

  • maria

    think the writters introduce new character new love interesting for sookie because wants avoid the posibilities of sookie eric romance, like c harris do in her books. seemed that the eric popularity as gone of control and dont like this, because not want the series center on eric them want the serie center on sookie and bill, and posibly on sam


    that sexiest man is perfect. OMG

  • Iris

    Oh My…

  • ladybug

    @Strange: Don’t rule out that this is as being as misleading as the Sookie Gets Together With Alcide hints/trailers from last year. And … nothing happened. Well, Sookie threw up on Alcide’s shoes.
    TB hints/teasers/trailers are notoriously misleading.

    But season 6 is the last one
    If there seventh season we were already know about it

  • New progency For Eric

    Does anybody else think in the clip Eric has got or might have a new progency, governor burrell’s daughter willia burrell the one he was intregating in the previous clips ,it looks like he may have turned her is standing over a grave or something ?? it makes sense bring in a younger actress and a new progency.
    Amelia Rose Blaire of the CW’s 90210 has been cast as Willa Burrell, Governor Truman Burrell’s (Arliss Howard) daughter. While he may hate vampires because he lost his wife to one, Willa will be clashing over vampire rights with her father according to the report.

    I thought that since Bill become Billit and the whole war between vems and humans Eric and Sookie will unated together and actually have a
    love affair!!! not in Sookies dreams and not when Eric have an

  • ladybug

    @New progency For Eric: Probably not, apparently the Gov has an underground lair where he’s holding and experimenting on vamps and that may be part of it: Why Eric has to be shirtless going there I have no idea.

    “if there seventh season we were already know about it”
    Nope. HBO doesn’t announce these things until the season starts. Sometimes well after the season starts.

  • Whycantipost

    Sorry, but I am terribly disappointed.. I hope AS leaves TB soon, this is just getting silly. It’s like a sinking ship, he better get off it soon. Again the fearie-c…rap, Alcide ripping his shirt off, Bill being in our face, Lafayette with another weird storyline and of course Nora looking ‘surprised’. Seriously. Stop it. Staaahhhppp!

  • maría

    @New progency For Eric:yes in the first eps their shoot eric in a black suit in a cementery remember?and maybe that is the funeral of ep6.maybe.i hope.

  • maría

    what happen with eric costume?a jacket without shirt?the past season dont have enough shirtless eric because the weight loss of alex for hidden.

  • ladybug

    @maría: No, this is the suit shown in some fan pics from on location shooting way back in January/early February. This is the Governor’s mansion. This trailer probably has only clips from the first 3-4 episodes, if that many.

    He’s not getting off of TB until it ends, so this season, maybe next.

  • ladybug

    @maría: You mean S5? Alex didn’t really lose the weight for that until after S5 had finished filming.

  • Julie

    I was a die hard of fan of TB since day 1, but my love affair with it ended after the first two shows of this past season. The show has become so convoluted and hard to follow with all the different story lines they don’t finish and more pixie, elfs, werewolves, vampires, shape shifters, zombies. ad nauseum. I will always love Eric, but I loved him more in the first couple of season, before sookie got her claws in him. Sorry guys, but I just cannot stand pukie sookie, think she a lousy actress. Come to think of it, just hit me, Jennifer Lawrence would make a good sookie or maybe reese witherspoon. Just a thought, anybody but paquin

  • Luke Evans the crow

    “EXCLUSIVE: The Crow will fly with Welsh actor Luke Evans playing the title role in the F. Javier Gutierrez-directed franchise reboot for Relativity Media….
    The distributor looked at Tom Hiddleston and more recently Alexander Skarsgard, the latter of whom has a bunch of offers after Warner Bros halted Tarzan. Ultimately, they have decided to push the start date to early next year to accommodate his schedule in order to secure Evans, who is currently promoting the release of Fast 6. So hey junket guys, be sure to ask him about it. They are now in negotiations and I expect the deal to make.”

    From deadline

    I canner say I am disappointed Alex wasn’t really right for the role however

    What I want to know is what are all these so-called OFFERS Alex is supposed to be getting as far as I am concerned it’s just his name being tossed around , and possible meetings but I haven’t heard of any auditions, screen test shots or even close to getting any role or signing on that line
    if you class two projects we have heard of tarzen which has fell through and crow just his name being mentioned that’s hardly floods and floods
    of offers however we don’t know what other offers he has received turned down and just not been announced .
    Just saying such a shame no new projects just yet :(

  • Kristin

    Sookie and Eric had great chemistry in seasons 1-3. In season 4, I think the writers deliberately made their romance super cheesy just to turn people off, because in my opinion, Alan Ball’s strategy was always to put Bill on top and since people were rooting more for Sookie and Eric, he basically put Sookie with a fairy. And now it looks like Bill will be mor powerful than Eric, so Alan Ball achieved his goal before leaving the show.

  • ladybug

    @maría: Going back to the shirtless scene-is there a plot point in which he needs to lose the shirt/jacket to get the the vamp prison, start wearing the jacket again, though with no shirt? Probably not, it’s probably just a way to get Alex shirtless. Not that I’m really complaining about that. :)

    @Luke Evans the crow: I don’t think he was right for the role, nor were Bradley Cooper or Tom Hiddleston. Do I think his name was tossed in there just because? Possibly. I do think he’s got other stuff percolating, even though we’re not hearing about those, I think on his end he tries to keep it quiet until he signs.
    And it’s only the beginning of May, I’m not worried.

  • cali

    I think Tom Hiddleston would have been fine in The Crow. I think his face would have looked really good in the makeup. His face is very angular.

    As much as I like Alex, I wouldn’t have liked him for that role.

    Luke Evans? Not sure, he seems to be very hot right now, but I haven’t seen him in much.

  • Video

    There is a video of Alex at maise pre carol was in the background hovering while he spoke something is going on either she is into him again or they are an item again but something

  • Cadulech

    except that she smokes and Alex doesn’t.
    I think they are just friends,there is nothing wrong with have friends.

  • maria

    @Video: if they are in love good for he, they can speak swedish love words, have blond tall beautiful kids and go to hamarby games, they seems to have a lot of things in comun.

  • maria

    @Video: and yes, if they are in love i am jealous, but he never will be with me anyway.

  • ladybug

    @Video: Alex has been famous in the US for about four years now, and Caroline Winberg previously hasn’t been mentioned a former girlfriend. Until very very recently. So, exactly when did they date?

  • Cadulech

    I see both very busy,i don’t see anything that show be more than friends.

  • SassyJ

    @ladybug: I’m not worried either. Right now Eric and his family have their own lives to worry about right now, between Bill and the human race. There’s no time for Sookie and Eric and live. Sookie is just a hooch mama and she love sex that is clear plus fairy are just securely people we have seen how they like it like one big orgy with them and that’s what it is between them the (fairy boy) and nothing more. I like the scene with Eric top less and it looks like he’s in the day light too. That one chic in the white dress will play a big role with that, I think that clip might be from episode 6 in the season where the rumors are going around that Eric will die. I think he will under go a big change to fight off demigod Bill now. Have faith people, Sookie and Eric forever. And has they say Waiting Sucks!!

  • ladybug

    @SassyJ: Sookie’s only had sex with Bill and Eric.And I doubt she ends up having sex with Ben the Fae:

    I don’t think the trailer includes Episode 6, and that suit that Eric is wearing was from the beginning of filming. I don’t think it’s episode 6 because they’re probably still finish editing it, so probably only the first 2-4 episodes are included in this trailer.
    The chick in the white dress/nightgown is Willa, the governor’s daughter.

  • maria

    this is my idea of what happens:all(sookie eric nora…) scape and go to an eric house on the sea cost,eric goes to the governor house, abducted governor daughter , and turn her for demostrate governor that vampires have rigth to live like humans do.that is the image of shirtless alex in dayligh( or sunset light i think)and the girl with white dres, and the photos of eric with the black suit at cementary that see in february or january. the fairly teach sookie how use her powers. bill call jessica and she stay with he because is his progenie, and then bill goes to sookie house to convence sookie to follow he, eric try to kill and bill atack eric, then sookie use her powers and bill have to go.

  • Sarah

    It seems like Eric is really going to be in the center of this war with the humans this season. I’m glad that I can prepare for everything to come, by re-watching seasons of True Blood, with DISH I travel a lot for my job at DISH, so I love that I can easily stream shows to my laptop. My wait at the airport is always improved when I get to watch episodes of my shows.

  • Keiko

    It’s true, Caroline IS in that video hovering. You can see her in a black jacket and a white skirt.

  • Keiko

    And I can’t for the life of me see how they weren’t photographed together. It’s weird. The paps go out of their way to photograph him during a 10-second walk on the street with a woman that very well may be a total stranger, and call this “a mystery woman”, yet they can’t get a picture of him at an event where he was CLEARLY with Caroline. You can see her standing there in the video waiting for him to get to the end of the line of reporters and when he does she dashes over to him. I don’t care if it’s platonic or what it is, I’m just amazed at the ineptitude of photographers who pap celebs for a living.

  • maría

    @Keiko: totally true,she go to the event like his partner-girlfriend or not-and nobody say a word.i think alex has a treath with gossip owners-we now he is friend of jj-and them keept things in secret.

  • Keiko


    It’s possible. Or he’s using his male friends as a cover so that no one really notices one or two women in the midst of a group.

  • Video

    I look at the photos from the Premiere and there were many of them. He was with Julian and Onata most of the time and worked the room according to fans who were there. So maybe she was ther hovering also in the background, Caroline was there with Elin as a date as she stated. Personally I think she is into him again if Alex is too that still not clear at least to me. There are photos from the lakers where they were talking and the way she looked at him was someone smitten, you know when you extra laugh when a guy you like say something.
    Since then everytime they are around she seems to be hovering or watching or paying alot of attention to him and that looks like a lady that is interesting as I said Alex may be as well but he is not really showing it. Who knows I am sure they will keep running into each other they are swedish and have the same friends so yeah we see how this ends up.

  • Video

    As for the other lady, he looked more interested in his apple. Maybe a long time friend or a new one or new GF I don’t know. But I am guessing if he was seeing this woman he would look more into her or you would have seen her somewhere in all those numerous photos especially since his ex is in town with her guy.
