True Blood Shower Scene: Confirmed!

by at . Comments

We weren't kidding, Team Eric members, you really can celebrate.

Confirming what many have suspected/hoped for, True Blood creator Alan Ball says season four of his HBO hit won't follow the fourth book in Charlene Harris' series exactly - but the famous shower scene depicted in "Dead to the World" will take place at some point this summer.

"It is not a direct re-enactment," Ball tells Michael Ausiello. "It goes to a slightly different place... [but] Sookie and Eric are in the shower together. Everybody who’s been waiting for Sookie and Eric to hook up, this will be a very good season for them.”

Ball also detailed the role of Scott Foley, who will debut on the season four finale and then recur throughout season five.

“He was Terry’s platoon leader in Iraq,” the producer says of Foley’s character, Patrick. “So they [share] a military history," which, according to rumors, involves Terry saving Patrick's life on more than one occasion.

True Blood returns with a new episode on Sunday. Check out its official promo NOW.

Thank you Alan! This better be the best hook up on digital Tv ever! Espeacially, since Alan may give a diferent version. I have a feeling this is going to be the best season yet.

I love the idea of Sookie and Eric together, I think they have more chemistry than Sookie and Bill. So I hope it is true about Sookie and Eric. Plus Bill always seems to be hiding something from Sookie. Eric just seems to lay it all out there, instead of hiding it.

Are u guys kidding? How could anyone want Sookie with really annoying lying manipulative Bill?
Their romance was nice before Season 3. After last year , I lost respect for Bill.

I also prefer Bill to Eric, but I don't really care who Sookie is hooking up with as long as some hot dude is getting nekkid in the shower. After Sookie is done with Eric, she should move on to Alcide and then Sam. :) BTW, I have read the books and I prefer the tv show. I don't think it really matters how individual people feel about individual storylines/characters as long as every one keeps watching. More viewers = more seasons = more supernatural smut. Happy watching!
