Oh Entertainment Weekly (@EW), you make my heart sing!
In honor of the New Girl episode that aired last night on FOX, those insightful folks at EW shared a list of TV Couples we all love to ask “Will they/Wont they” about. They wanted to see how the New Girl “ship” will fit in with the most beloved “ships” in TV history.
Guess who is number 8 in the gallery… if you guess Eric and Sookie, you were right!
Here is what they said about our favorite couple…
ERIC NORTHMAN (ALEXANDER SKARSGARD) AND SOOKIE STACKHOUSE (ANNA PAQUIN)
True Blood (2008-present)
He said he might grow on her, she said she’d prefer cancer: That sounds like the beginning of a beautiful friendship to us. Though Sookie ”belonged” to vampire Bill (Stephen Moyer), Eric forged a bond with the telepathic barmaid by tricking her into drinking his blood in season 2. After some erotic dreams, more biting dialogue, and one hot goodbye kiss as foreplay, they finally sealed the deal in season 4 when Eric had amnesia… in the woods, on the floor, in the chair, in the bed, in the shower, in the trippy forest. Get back together soon!
We echo the sentiments… get back together soon! We miss you on the screen together in True Blood.

Pssst… if you have seen this gallery before; we hope you enjoyed it the second and third and… you get the idea
