What's the only thing that can make Russell Edgington happier than total enslavement of humanity?
BLOOD LOVE!!! DUH!!
If you'll reflect with us, he was just about to kill Bill when Eric murdered the love of his immortal life in Season 3. As soon as the stake entered Talbot, Russell screamed the most blood-curdling cry since Tara's frenzy from Season 2 and Bill was spared.
But fortunately for the Mississippi vamp, love is blossoming yet again in Season 5. And it's changing things! Ooh la la!
"Russell is different this season. I wouldn't say he's mellower, but he's surprising. And there are aspects of his personality that are out this season that weren't out before. He's still angry and he's still crazy, but he's looking towards the long haul, and he's looking to be happy."
Yes. Even megalomaniacs deserve the happiness that comes with gettin' it on every night.
But who will the new lovah boy be???
HmMmMmm…. theorize and let us know UR bets!!
