Alexander Skarsgard will return for more ‘True Blood’

Oh yeah, needless to say but SPOILERS because we’re talking about what went down on True Blood. You have been warned. Click here to distract yourself from spoilers.

Alexander Skarsgard

If you saw the fifth season finale of True Blood on Sunday, you probably remember two things: First, Alexander Skarsgård‘s penis. Second, Sookie and her fairy grandfather you forgot existed killed Warlow after he suddenly became evil for no reason, and all the vampires who drank Bill’s fairy-tainted blood lost their ability to walk in the sun, including Eric who for some reason went to live on a gawd damn sunny, snow-capped mountain in the middle of nowhere and burned straight to sh!t. Everyone freaked out because they thought the best character on the show had been killed off, but potentially good news! Skarsgård is reportedly coming back next season! Sorta? The A/V Club reports …

“I’m not going to take Alex Skarsgård out of people’s living rooms,” Buckner said, all too aware of what his show is. That established, however, Buckner says Eric won’t suddenly return next season, rested and ready to continue standing around not killing anyone while Sookie spends another year fretting about which monster which she wants to date. “Pam has gone off in search of Eric, and maybe she’s going to be the one to find him, y’know?” Buckner says, adding, “With Eric gone and off on his own story going forward, I think it’s a pretty obvious triangle we’re setting up between Bill and Sookie and Alcide.” Incidentally, this is right after Buckner said, “I’m aware that people like the familiar, but we have to change,” which is, frankly, hilarious.

It’s entirely conceivable that Eric would survive, since he was surrounded by snow and there’s that whole “fire melts snow into water and water puts out fire” thing that I learned from Pokemon. And also, there’s the small matter of Eric being the only person left on the show who isn’t either a complete incompetent or too up his own ass to do anything, so they can’t rightly kill him off without destroying the only person in that series still moving the plot along. So if I had to hazard a guess, he’s gonna end up frozen and subsequently thawed out. I’m aware of how stupid that sounds, but remember: This is a series that featured one woman killing another by stabbing her in the head with a high-heeled shoe, and then completely forgot about it. True Blood has forgotten more about not giving a sh!t then you’ll ever know, and I love it for it.
