Did you see this week's True Blood?
Good, wasn't it?? Were you surprised with the ending??
In case you didn't see Sunday's episode, there was a pretty major DEATH at the end of the episode that had a lot of fans wondering, "Why?"
Well, creator Alan Ball and author of the books Charlaine Harris have some answers for you.
WARNING: MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD!
Eric, played by the amazing ASkars, was seen feeding off of Sookie's fairy godmother Claudine, which doesn't happen until much later in the books.
"After everything that was going on with the fairies in the first episode, I think we wanted to sort of put a pin in that, but obviously it’s not over. I felt it would have more impact if it was someone we knew as opposed to just a random fairy."
Thankfull, author Charlaine was cool with Alan's decision to kill her off.. She adds:
"If we did just do everything in the books, there would be no surprises. It’s not like we have a formula for what we’re going to keep from the books and what we’re going to change. If there’s a consensus that something makes sense, that’s usually the way we go. If he can be gracious to me, I can certainly be gracious enough to wait and see where he’s going."
As for the rest of this shocking season, Alan says:
"It gets ugly between the vampires and the witches. There’s more than one fight coming up. There’s also a very unexpected romantic attachment which you’ll start to see the beginnings of I believe in next week’s episode. We’re gonna find out a lot about Jesus’ magic that’s in his family. We’re gonna get to the bottom of what’s going on with Arlene’s baby."
Sooo excited! Just keep giving us Vampire Eric and we'll be satisfied!
So, Truebies! What did U think of this week's episode?
