The first official trailer for True Blood Season Five is awesome! There is so much going on I barely know where to start and it is so broken up I am unsure about how the different bits and pieces fit together. It is “Fantastic!” at any rate, to quote Russell Edgington.
The BEST part is that we see some clear cut flashbacks of Eric from his younger days. In one he looks like some kinda mobster complete with pinstripe suit ala the roaring 20s or 30s maybe? I kinda like the idea of Eric as a mobster.
In another set of flashback scenes we see Eric with Pam, most likely when he turned her, in the mid 1800s. Eric is wearing a top hat and his opera best! OMG! He is also licking his fingers again. Dare I say he ripped another heart out? I am guessing from this scene that Pam was attacked and Eric saved and turned her. Cannot wait to see this unfold!!!
Another scene shows Pam and Eric in bed together! Booyah! Not sure when this happens/happened. But good lord how can she look away from that face??!!
Also interesting is the fact that Bill and Eric enlist Sookie’s help together, Eric reluctantly and Bill aggressively. Typical. In one scene they appear to be breaking into a building or are in some way sneaking around… Eric takes the lead.
Strong and silent and blah, blah, blah…
My two fave Eric pics are these:
I think it is obvious that HBO knows who fans want to see. There is a metirc ton of Eric in this promo as opposed to rat faced Bill. Let’s hope the season as a whole pans out that way too. Even if Sookie and Eric are not together I pretty much only want to see Eric and Sookie in scenes with lots of Pam thrown in for good measure of course. As long as I get lots of Eric I won’t even mind this so much…
That’s Sookie about to kiss Alcide. They best not be on the sex chair in her living room! Some things are sacred!
