Ahead on True Blood: An "Erotic Connection" Between Bill and Sam

by at . Comments

Yes, True Blood fans, you read that headline correctly.

Remember when Bill gave some of his blood to save Sam's life on the September finale? Many presumed this would come back and play a role on season three and creator Alan Ball says this prediction is correct... but perhaps not in a  way anyone saw coming.

Ball told Entertainment Weekly that the blood donation would create an "erotic connection" between Bill and Sam when the series returns to HBO in June. He wouldn't elaborate, but that's enough to get viewers buzzing.

Fortunately, Ball was more open about another couple of the same sex: Lafayette and his upcoming love interest, Jesus (played by Kevin Alejandro).

Especially following his torture at the hands of Eric and company, Lafayette  “is very guarded, Ball said. "And Jesus is a guy who is willing to knock down some of those guards. [Though] it’s not an easy relationship, they have a lot in common. They’re both shamans of sorts, healers, so there’s a reason they get brought together."

What might that reason be? Discuss it in our True Blood forum!
