Eric’s going even darker this season — premiering June 16 on HBO — and Alexander tells HollywoodLife.com to expect some ‘nasty stuff.’

With humans closing in on them, the vampires of Bon Temps will resort to desperate measures on the upcoming sixth season of HBO’s True Blood – and it sounds like some of them may even be crossing over to the dark side! “[Eric’s] doing some evil stuff this year, some stuff that’s not so nice,” Alexander Skarsgard told HollywoodLife.com on May 20 at Piaget’s screening of Fox Searchlight’s The East in NYC.

“I like them both,” he told us about ‘good’ Eric and ‘evil’ Eric. “It’s fun to go back and forth, you get to play around with both sides. It’s always more interesting than one extreme or the other … when you have both within, and it’s an internal struggle.”

Nordic & ‘Nasty’

We’ve seen Eric commit some pretty seedy acts — remember when he killed Talbot while having sex with him? — and Alexander promised there’s plenty more where that came from. Though he admitted that Eric’s temporary season-four amnesia “affected him in a way,” he said Eric’s still going to be up to his old tricks.

“You’ll see this season he’s doing some pretty nasty stuff,” he told us. “It’s not all good.”


Of course, we wouldn’t have it any other way! We’re not worried…we LOVE it when Eric is a BAMF! It’s one of the reasons why we love his character so much. He’s over 1000 years old, and he has had to do some really bad things in order to survive. In a war against humans – who will do whatever it takes to win…we’re not surprised by the fact Eric and the rest of the vampires are willing to do the same. Maybe the humans hurt someone Eric loves or cares about and he goes after them for revenge? It’s interesting that this article mentioned Talbot’s death…it’s the perfect example of Eric doing a bad thing for a very good reason. We know Eric will go to great lengths to get his revenge on behalf of those he cares about.

But what kind of bad things is Alex talking about exactly? Only time will only tell…but my guess is it has to do with the kidnappings and experiments the humans are doing on the vampires.

What are your thoughts? Please share ’em below.

  1. I just hope he doesn’t decide to get all revenge happy because of something happening to Nora, she’s not worth it. They better not make him out to be the bad guy this season, we already have Bill for that.

    • I had to laugh when I read this. I’ve been watching last season on HBO On Demand, and I find myself shouting at the television all over again. I sat there saying some nasty words…”skank” and “ho” to name a few, and not to forget the question on everybody’s mind….”When will she get turned into goo already?” To me, any redemption she may be getting is totally undeserved because she said those two little words…”F&%$ Godrich!”.

      I guess we have to wait 25 more days!

      • I don’t hate her like everyone else seems to, but I won’t shed one tear if she was to meet the final death.

  2. My thoughts exactly Tammy!

  3. It would be so like them to try and make Eric look worse than Bill. To try and get every one on the we love Bill train. God I hope not. Don’t think I could stand that.

    • That’s so not happening, if he does anything evil and nasty it will most likely be because he’s trying to protect those he cares about. Bill only looks after himself.

    • Do you honestly think that can happen deary? I for one can vouch for myself that no matter what they make Alex do on the show, I will always be an Eric fan….I loved him even when he locked Sookie in his dungeon :) :)

  4. Don’t know what to think… I love bad boy Eric and I justified him killing Russell but I felt sorry for poor Talbot (maybe because I liked his character), was it really necessary? I just think it’s becoming a bit boring – I mean the revenge thing … I hope he doesn’t cross the line with Sookie in the process – eg hurting Jason… and he maybe he betrays her at the end (remember that comment in S4 – I’ll never betray you…bla, bla…). Considering the way the books ended the writers are no longer concerned with E/S. As much as I would love them to reconnect I am worried that it won’t happen. This human/vampire war will be brutal and Sookie will fall in between. Something tells me she will side with humans (naturally). As long as Eric doesn’t fight together with Bill and follows him I will be happy …him being friendly and siding with Bill would be worse for me than E/S never reconnecting.

    • ps forgot to add – I think ‘nasty’ could be doing something bad to Governor’s daughter – break her neck, drain her, etc..maybe turn her bu force – but then that would be OOC for Eric

      • I think he might just use her to help them since she’s technically on their side and doesn’t believe in what her father is doing.

  5. Well let the speculations begin! I, for one, am looking forward to seeing some BAMF coming back out in Eric. They really have made him a little too soft the last season especially. I mean in Season 4 I could see it as he was showing his true love for Sookie. Last season they made him appear too weak (in his character).

    In order for him to stand up to Mr. God, Billith. He’d better be back to his BAMF’ing self!!!!!! I want Eric to win over Bill. Longshot I know but I still have my hopes….

    • Except now they actually made Bill stronger than him, which pisses me off. I just want Eric to kick some ass this season and not take crap from anyone.

      • Bill may now be stronger because of the weird Lilith weed thing, but Eric always had more brains and character ….And brains go a long way to ensure survival…..See how Russel died at the hands of a vampire less than half his age :)…Go Team Eric :)

  6. oh yes please!!! i miss the Season 2 & 3 Eric, where he was really a bad ass!

  7. I don’t hate Nora I’m just indifferent pretty much leaves me cold just like Bill and well most of S5 story lines if there had been no Eric then I’d be gone by now. Which is quite the quandary how Stephan Moyer can’t no matter what get me invested in his character. After being played in regards to the book series conclusion I confess I’m facing June with nothing more than dread and fatalism especially with the death of Eric rumors. I wouldn’t put it past those in charge to kill off Eric just to garner a specific emotional response to manipulate viewers. Frankly I for one like him naughty or nice since he’s now the only reason I watch…

  8. I don’t mind the bad ass Viking one bit. Since humans will be committing unspeakable, evil things to vampires then I say Eric is justified. He won’t harm humans that are not doing anything harmful to vampires. He has always been that way, in season 1 he said he knew when other vampires were being hurt.

  9. […] SPOILER ALERT! For those who only care about Eric Northman…we have a spoiler which you’ll find the most interesting! Yes, it’s an Eric spoiler…FINALLY! […]
