The Entertainment Weekly Magazine double issue dated 7/8/11 featured a review of True Blood by Ken Tucker. The image above was included in his review.
UPDATE: The “rest of season sneek peek” that was shown at Comic Con I believe is showing us the footage that is covered in the EW photo! Perhaps the episode description for episode 4.09 is giving us a clue as to what is going on!
Episode #45 (#4.09): “Run”: Convalescing after her latest near-death trauma, Sookie envisions a world where there’s room for both Bill and Eric. Jesus tries to purge the restless spirit out of Lafayette; Marcus enlists Alcide to help him deal with the Sam situation; Bill and Nan Flanagan clash over their respective agendas; Hoyt asks Jason to make a delivery to Jessica. Despite Tara and Holly’s misgivings, Marnie plots her next move against the vampires, during a “Festival of Tolerance” event at Shreveport. Playdates: August 21, 23, 24, 26 and 27. linked here:
The part of “Sookie envisions a world where there’s room for both Bill and Eric” is what leads me to think that perhaps this is what Alan Ball meant by having a very twisted “shower scene”. Just mark my words-Sounds like it is Alan Ball who is really the one wishing for a world with both Eric and Bill for Sookie! (so there will probably be a threesome in the shower instead of just Eric and Sookie)
These images are my screen caps from the Comic Con trailer showing Sookie wearing the same red negligee above: The fourth image is from a new TCA video. The shower scene does sound like it will not be ony Sookie and Eric ! Alan Ball also said this at TCA:
Also of note is that the cast love working with each on True Blood and often give Ball and the writers ideas for their characters. In episode 9 of this season, Anna Paquin (Sookie) gets the creative credit for something that happens between her, Bill and Eric. SOURCE: thehdroom
Anna is smokin’ hot in these pictures. I’m gonna be bummed if it isn’t just Eric and Sookie in the shower. Not fair! We’ve been waiting so long and he had to go and give the hot shower scene to Bill. I hope we get something else between Eric and Sookie to make up for it.
Anna looks AMAZING this season! So beautiful. I can’t wait to see the new episodes. Oh and don’t worry even if the shower scene won’t be only Eric and Sookie I have a feeling that 4.06 will be one to not miss.
No, no, no, and no. I hope they didn’t do it. I will be very disappointed if we’ll see a shower scene with the three of them. I was thinking that the scene which AB was referring to is the one taken from a pic in which Sookie is on Eric who’s on Bill trying to stop the Viking that presumably wants to hurt Bill. And I know that the ep 4×06 is gonna be MEMORABLE, but the shower scene… WE WANT OUR SCENE WITH ERIC AND SOOKIE or better not to have any! xD
I feel your pain. I have been upset over this for a while. At least we can enjoy 4.06 and have that for a little while before we will have the ruined shower scene. The scene where Eric is trying to take Bill’s head off is from after the shower I believe. I know I did not want to even think about the other possibliity. Sorry..but yes i feel your pain and I hope I am wrong! Thanks for commenting.
It seems AB is always trying to stick it to us Eric fans. First he has Bill interrupt the almost kiss in Eric’s cubby; now tonight it looks like Bill is going to interrupt them yet AGAIN. Plus those baggy gym shorts!! Anyone else sick of seeing those? Some tight jeans but still shirtless would be appreciated. I almost feel like AB likes to poke fun at and demean our scenes with Eric…AE in particular. Threesome in the shower…not surprised. Love your comment that it is AB who is wishing for a world of both Eric and Bill with Sookie.
Yes I completely agree with you on AB! I am really getting very tired of it. OMG those shorts yes-when the heck is he going to change!? LOL hopefully tonight. Yes I do believe it is AB that is the one wishing for the world for both Eric and Bill for Sookie. A vamp sandwich indeed! (with a sweet Sookie middle) Thanks for posting!
happy anniversary stephen and anna
Yes happy anniversary!! Thanks for the comment! One year flew by!
