Eric Northman fans have endured quite a bit over the three seasons of True Blood. Season 1 was dismal for Eric Northman air time to say the least. Season 2 brought more of the viking vampire on the show. Season 3 I have been waiting and waiting for more of what endeared the character to me. I have not always enjoyed all of the episodes of True Blood. Season 3 started out strong I felt with the development of Eric’s character finally coming to light on the shows. However patience is wearing very very thin for me. There were some scenes that really left a lot to be desired.
The one saving grace for me in episode 3.10 “I Smell a Rat” was finally having a “real” kiss (and not a dream sequence one..) between Eric Northman and Sookie Stackhouse. Alan Ball has stated time and time again that yes Bill will remain integral to the show and how Bill and Sookie are soulmates. All I hear is blah blah blah. Keeping to the spirit of the books is what I had always expected. The ending to episode 3.10 is definitely unexpected and definitely not the spirit of the character at all!
Enough tirade from me. Rather than stay upset I decided to look at the scenes in the episode I did enjoy and created the screen caps in the gallery below. Amazing how for some reason I managed to capture almost 100 images of the kiss alone!
