Do you remember reading a part in “Deadlocked”, where Sookie said something which sounded eerily familiar? I definitely had the case of deja vu while reading it. Let’s see if you remember it too.
This is what Sookie said when Eric and she were discussing Eric’s situation with Freyda.
“Then we’ll leave,” I said quietly. “We’ll go somewhere else. You’ll work for some other king or queen. I’ll find a job.”
You’re probably wondering why this sounds vaguely familiar? Think back to “Dead To The World”…Eric and Sookie were trying to figure out a way to be together and to not fight in the Witch War. Eric said this passage below;
“We could go back,” he said. In the dome light of the car, his face looked hard as stone. “We could go back to your house. I can stay with you always. We can know each other’s bodies in every way, night after night. I could love you.” His nostrils flared, and he looked suddenly proud. “I could work. You would not be poor. I would help you.”
Do these sound eerily familiar? I found it interesting that it was Eric who said something like this first, then later on in the series, it’s Sookie. It’s like a role-reversal in a way. It’s almost as if they’ve come full circle. Both of them are suggesting something that may or not be practical, and they are wanting to run away from their troubles so that they only have to deal with themselves and their relationship. It certainly sounds like both of them want their lives to be simpler than they really are.
I hope that by the end of the series, Eric and Sookie can somehow work out a plan where they both get want they want and each other.
