Will Eric Northman die in season 6? TVLine’s answer below the Read More.
Question: There are rumors that True Blood is going to kill off the gorgeous and sexy Eric Northam! Please tell me this isn’t true. He is one of the main reasons I watch. —Kelly
Ausiello: I can neither confirm or deny the rumors, but I can offer you two pieces of evidence that suggest such a twist is in the realm of possibility. The first one comes care of Joe Manganiello, who tells TVLine, “We’re getting to the point in the season now where people are starting to die. The table reads are starting to get smaller, and I’m sure they will continue to do that.” Exhibit B, meanwhile, arrives in the form of Episode 7′s title — “The Funeral.” Sorry I don’t have better news for you Kelly.
Question: Any serious True Blood scoopage? —Colleen
Ausiello: I suppose that depends on how you choose to interpret this additional, equally provocative tease from Mr. Manganiello: “I think [the producers] looked at some things that went on with Alcide last season, and thought, ‘How can we top that or how can we get even racier?’ And I think they’ve succeeded… Right out of the gate, it’s really juicy.”
Oh, Michael, Michael, Michael. Why are you torturing poor Kelly there? Because you have to know that the idea of Eric Northman dying this season would be total BS. I think it is HIGHLY unlikely that they would kill off Eric, particularly with his relationship with Sookie still an unfinished storyline. (“We will be One” has not yet been addressed, and I am utterly convinced it will be at some point — probably just as Eric and Sookie are getting closer again.) So, shame, shame on you, Michael, toying with poor Kelly’s fears there!
What I want to know is, where did this rumor come from? Unless the show is floating it out there to fan interest because they know Eric is popular!
That said, I do think someone is going to die, but frankly, given the number of casting calls for new characters that we have seen for this season, we have a long, LONG list of possibilities that involve no one we have even met yet. So I’m not worried. Although I’m still secretly hoping that Billith will turn into a big permanently gone pile of goo so that Stephen Moyer can direct more.
As for Alcide, I wonder if they’re going to borrow the aspect of the books that has the packmaster having sex with all the female members of the pack? I wonder how Rikki would feel about that?
