Season 6 Brings A New Character Into Eric’s Life



Man of the moment, Alexander Skarsgard, has revealed a few more juicy details about Eric Northman in True Blood Season 6, during an interview with entertainment.inquirer.net


Ok, here we go…………….

LOS ANGELES—“There’s a new… oh God, I’ve got to be careful here,” Alexander Skarsgård caught himself as he answered a question on what direction his vampire character Eric in “True Blood” is headed. But the actor revealed the “new” development in his 1,000-year-old fanged Viking sheriff’s life, anyway.

“Someone is introduced, a new character, into Eric’s life,” dished the 36-year-old Swede. A possible love interest? “Maybe, maybe not,” Alexander teased in this recent interview. “But there’s someone new who’s suddenly part of his inner circle.”

On the huge buzz that his beloved character will be killed in the sixth season, Alexander jested, “I’m right here!”

Then he said, “We’re wrapping up. We’re now [doing]  the last two episodes of the season. I’m obviously not going to reveal what happens in those last two episodes but Eric has been busy this year because, up until    now, the humans have been blood bags. Eric doesn’t really care about humans and they can’t really do anything. But this season, for the first time in a millennium, the humans can actually fight back. The governor of Louisiana has figured out a way to be a real threat and fight back. So it’s tough for Eric. It’s not as easy as it was before, dealing with the humans.”

Alexander’s announcement that he bought a house in LA, where he shoots “True Blood,” may debunk the rumors that Eric Northman will die. “I got a home last year for the first time in 10 years,” he said. “I’ve been a nomad for 10 years, traveling around. I lived in my friend’s garage for two years and I was couch-surfing for many years. I woke up one day and realized I basically had been living out of my suitcases for 10 years, and that it was probably time to grow up, get a house—and so I did that”

A new character in Eric’s life? The early betting seems to be on this being Willa, the Governor’s daughter , or perhaps his sister Nora will have a progeny of her own, but we will have to wait a further 2 weeks to see for sure. And of course Eric is still alive (un-dead) and kicking, so hopefully that will be the end of the Viking true death rumors (for this week anyway).

You may also be aware that the advanced review copies of the first 3 episodes of Season 6 have been now circulated and some  detailed spoilers have been released on-line. We don’t feel that this blog is an appropriate place to discuss these, as (and I haven’t read them all  as I like to have a few surprises) they are apparently VERY detailed. For those of you who really can’t wait you can check out the links on a thread in our forum or on our tumblr page.

Waiting sucks a little less now there are just 14 days to go!

  1. I LOVE IT! Alexander’s settleing down!!! I see him getting dogs to keep him company!
    His buying a house is going to make his dad happy, now he’s going to have a place
    to stay when he makes a film in the USA!!!

  2. ooooh…i want to read but i’m going to wait also. the new character…hmmm……that’s going to be really interesting to see that. I am hoping and keeping fingers crossed they don’t kill off eric :( if they did that honestly i wouldn’t watch TB anymore. So keeping waiting until the Season premier :)

  3. Frankly I’m tired of introducing new characters.
    Both male and female, I want to get rid of some of the characters, starting with Bill.
    I really lost all hope that Eric and Sookie
    be together again.
    If so I do not want to waste time and emotion in a show who disappoint me for the umpteenth time.I’ll give a chance 6 season if the story not goes in the direction how I want I will not watch season 7.That’s why I sad because I was really invested in this show :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(

  4. Yep, I’ve already read this forementioned interview with Alex. By the way it sounds from him at least, Eric isn’t getting killed off. But who knows, I will be heading over to the forum now to get the other links to the spoilers as I just love to read what they say and then watch the show and see how they’ve been twisted around so that they don’t really mean anything!! LOL…….. 2 more weeks, just can’t wait!!!

    • Usually, I’m the spoiler queen. I’ll jump on them and read them so that nothing is a surprise. This season, I’ve stayed away from any of them. I really DO want to be surprised this time. I did read this interview, though, and I’m relieved that Eric will not be killed (My money’s on Nora, Luna, or Jessica).

      I’ve always been an Eric/Sookie shipper, and I, like most everyone here, feel that there’s no chance for them now. I have to say that I really despise Nora. I don’t even really understand why, but the whole “F**K GODRIC” line sure didn’t help her cause. Truthfully, I don’t really like ANY of the women Eric is with because they’re not me, hehe. My husband pointed that out to me once, and I realized that he’s exactly right :-) It’s silly, but it’s true.

      That being said, I’m looking forward to seeing where the whole Willa thing will go. It would be very interesting to have the Governor’s daughter on the vamp side, and what better way to get that to happen? Why, having her invite the handsome Mr. Nortman in, that’s how (I sure as hell would let him in, anyway.)!

      Two weeks and counting. Getting super excited now!!

      • I’m the same, I just can’t like Nora. I would dearly love for Eric & Sookie to live happily ever after but can’t see it happening now (If they do get back together I’ll worry she will break his heart again at the very end). I just hope Willa (if she is going to be a new love interest – and she might not be) is a girl that we can actually get behind and can like. The only girl Eric fans really generally feel is worthy of him is Pam, but she has Tara now so their relationship will never be the same as it used to be. I just want our Viking to be happy and have a good woman by his side. Hopefully that is not too much to ask for? (and I don’t want an ending for him like in that awful book that shall not be named).

        • Even if being with Sookie ends in heartbreak I still wanna see it because Eric loves her…..Pam is Eric’s daughter so they don’t have a romantic relationship and Nora doesn’t fit with him at all…..this new character Willa is okay but I only see Eric loving one human and that is Sookie.

  5. The new character will be Willa the governor’s daughter…yeah Eric is not going anywhere the rumors were never true.

  6. I really wonder if this new character is Willa and if Eric turns her. Maybe that is how she is part of his inner circle, and it kind of looked like Eric was standing in a grave in the one preview with a person in white beside him.

  7. When waiting for True Blood, two weeks is such a long time!

  8. […] ALERT! Alex recently revealed a True Blood season 6 spoiler in an interview he did with the Entertainment Inquirer! Find out what he said about ****** who will be joining Eric this […]

  9. Ppl Eric only love Sookie, when will ppl learn that they have make Eric and Sookie wait for them to be together, I know this character will be nothing just like this Ben guy for Sookie I think they need this anyway, so Sookie can grow up but I been saying all along that Eric and Sookie will be together by the end the season.
