You’ll find out how and why, but humans have become a danger.” He adds that the most difficult scene he’s ever had to perform on the show is coming up this season, though he can’t go into detail. “I recently had to do a very emotional scene with a blood bag,” he says, allowing a small smile. “I can’t talk about it too much, but that was quite difficult.”
Do you think Alexander means a literal bag of blood or using slang for a human? And what would make the scene emotional? Is there something wrong with the blood? Ooooh, or what if if the bag contains Sookie’s blood? They’ve been dropping a lot of hints that the day that vampires are going to try to produce synthetic faerie blood is coming, so maybe Sookie has been forced to donate for experimental purposes and Eric is supposed to taste test it to see how the synthetic compares to the real thing!
