True Blood Round Table: "I Wish I Was the Moon"

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.

Tommy sleeping with Luna as Sam: Right or wrong?
Matt: It was clearly wrong. But Tommy did just murder his parents. On a relative scale, he's bettering himself.

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.

Am I the only one who thought that Sam "acting" as Tommy in his Sam body was great? His mannerisms and how he spoke, I thought that was superb.


I actually li.d of.lined.this episode, but it was all wrong. In fact, the whole series is all wrong. I guess its ok if you never read the books, but I did. They kind of got the scene with Eric and sookie right, and I guess that's what I liked about it. But in the books there is no tommy or Luna and its impossible to shape shift into a different person. Not only by the original books, but by everything. Only demons can shape shift into other people. But then again, they already took so much out of the original storyline I guess they needed something else to grab your attention so that you don't get bored with the ancient Viking and the king that is 500+ years younger.


Rate the Sookie/Eric sex scene.
3 stars out of 10. It was like Soap opera. if true blood's becoming with sex-scene like that, it'd be no more men viewers. I believe scene like that just for womens. I'm men and I dont like at all.


I re watched the whole seasons of True Blood up until now and the thing is that the side stories were never that important. The focus always was BILL AND SOOKIE. Now this season it's supposed to be ERIC AND SOOKIE and all of a sudden they speed things up. I mean, no matter what happened to Eric, he cannot make someone up and this is the real him, all innocence flourished. In any case, I just think they should leave the side stories a bit more in the superficial tone rather than tell us the storie of every single one of them. I mean:


Congrats on the Sex Eric & Sookie! Funniest gifs from the episode -->


My favourite scenes:
Pam and Eric on Bill's cell, Tommy becoming Sam Merlotte, and last but not least Eric and Sookie's love scene (every scene featuring naked Eric must be an instant favourite, lol) Rate Eric and Sookie's sex scene:
10/10 for beauty
6/10 for hotness, it was too tame for True Blood standard Tommy and Luna:
Definitely wrong but good as plot device to spice up things. Jason not becoming werepanther:
A wise decision from the writer. In the book, this storyline was underdeveloped, either.


i dont think eric and sookie have the same chemistry she had with bill. the love scene was boring and not very romantic on the ground in the woods. i still say sookie and bill should be reunited and eric become a villian again


Tara is really annoying now, she is starting to get on my nerves now, and now I'm beginning to like Sam's storyline- Tommy changing into him was effed up!


I love the protective Eric in the beginning Am I the only one who's hating on the new Tara. I used to love love Tara now, I don't really like this new Tara. What's up with the ghost?


Is it just me or was the Eric/Sookie love scene kind of tepid.I mean, their Amnesia-Eric love story in the book (I always forget which one...argh) was a highlight of that series for me, so I guess I was expecting a little more passion in this episode. I do think that there is chemistry between Alex and Anna, but that scene wasn't the smokin' hotness I expected.
