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.
