After seeing the death of (spoiler alert!) his “sister” Nora on “True Blood” Sunday night, Eric Northman is about to become a little bit more similar to another TV character whose name starts with an E: Emily Thorne. Specifically, he’s going to be out for a little bit of revenge against those humans running the Louisiana vampire camp that infected her with Hepatitis V in the first place.
The upcoming ninth episode of season 6 carries with it the title of “Life Matters,” and it has the unfortunate challenge first of all of airing against the return of “Breaking Bad” on August 11. Also, there is another challenge coming in that Alexander Skarsgard’s character will be in a very dangerous situation, and both he and Bill will specifically be in danger of learning just how much their life really means:
“A desperate Bill (Stephen Moyer) tries to ferry Warlow (Rob Kazinsky) away from the faerie plain, but Sookie (Anna Paquin) is having none of it. Meanwhile, Eric (Alexander Skarsgård) arrives at vamp camp, looking to inflict serious human damage. In Bon Temps, friends and family take emotional turns remembering a fallen neighbor. Bill feels the pull of Lilith’s (Jessica Clark) sirens.”
This fallen neighbor is almost assuredly Terry, given that he is the one person who seems to be primed for a funeral right now. (Plus, he’s one of the few people that almost everyone out there likes.) Also significant here? That Sookie and Bill are still going to be at odds with the Warlow situation, which lets her know just who she is continuing to choose right now in the romance department … even though this is also the vampire who is apparently trying to get her to agree to a contract to be his forever. Yeah, good luck with that one.
If no one dies Sunday, that is still 3 out of 4 weeks that we will have lost someone related to this show. A pretty high ratio, no?
