Eric and Sookie sex alert! Eric and Sookie sex alert!
Yes, these two finally got it on at the conclusion of last night's "I Wish I Was the Moon," a topic we tackle below in the latest edition of the True Blood Round Table. But staff members Matt Richenthal, Eric Hochberger and Carissa Pavlica are here with reaction to other developments, as well. As always, reader feedback is encouraged...
What was your favorite scene?
Matt: Eric's reaction to Bill bursting in on him and Sookie. First? Violent and protective. Then, when Sookie revealed Bill's identity as his king? Humble and conciliatory.
Eric: Pretty much anything with Marnie and the flashbacks. Like Matt said in his review, I really enjoy how they're properly developing their villain this time. May we never have a season of the Maenad again.
Carissa: Watching the look on Bill's face when he listened to a changed Eric talk about Sookie. It was as if he never knew what love was before that moment.
Rate the Sookie/Eric sex scene.
Matt: 3.5. I'm sorry, but if I want sensual love-making, I'll turn on Cinemax. I want my True Blood sex scenes to be head-twistingly intense.
Eric: 5. You guys are going to hate me, but I just didn't feel the chemistry. Plus, isn't this cheating? We had to make Eric reset his memory to get them together?!? She's not falling in love with the real Eric, she's falling in love with the brainwashed one. What's going to happen when he gets his memory back? They break up and she returns to Bill? Weak sauce.
Carissa: Ooooh la la. 10. It was romantic and beautiful, something more simplistic than Sookie ever had with Bill. Naked Eric lifts any scene to a 10.
Eric: Is right even a choice here? Even as the resident TV Fanatic sleaze, I would never condone what Tommy did, boobs or no boobs. Vomiting is the least of the repentance that man should be doing.
Carissa: Wrong. But he didn't really have a chance to turn her away. And, hey, at least he vomited up what appeared to be his entrails afterward. Appropriate.
Would Andy and Holly make a good couple?
Matt: YES! For one, major reason: Handy. What a great couple's nickname!
Eric: I'm all for giving everyone their happy ending and relationship... but really? Andy and Holly?!? How far out there are we reaching for side stories...
Carissa: Sure. They are both a little off and that seems to make perfect sense in Bon Temps.
Jason NOT turning into a were-panther: Thank Goodness, or What a Tease?
Matt: Can I go with: What a Waste of Time instead? I mean, was this the entire point of the Hot Shot storyline? To gross us out with group rape and then to reveal that those were-panthers are dumber than Sammi Sweetheart? I'm just praying we never hear from them again.
Eric: Thank goodness! I kind of predicted from the beginning he'd never become one. I mean, how dumb are the people from Hot Shot not to know how were animals are made? Don't they watch The Vampire Diaries?
Carissa: I don't understand how stupid that white trash group is. Even they didn't know Jason couldn't make a baby were-panther? You need two full-blooded ones to make accomplish that goal? It's a disgrace to panthers. Tease indeed.
