Eric and Pam: The Best of True Blood

If anyone deserves an award for their performance in True Blood, it would have to be Alexander Skarsgård and Kristin Bauer Van Straten, hands down! The release scene between their characters, Eric and Pam, had me literally in tears. I have not cried about anything shown in True Blood since Godric met the sun and his ‘true death’. The scene was that powerful! How about a reminder?

Eric: “What you said in anger, you were right. I have to release you and it’s not because I don’t trust you or because I don’t care. It’s because you are my only progeny, my one legacy. I need you to live while I’m gone.”
Pam: “If that is your wish, I understand. I accept.Do it”
Eric: “Pamela, I renounce the ties of our blood and my dominion over you as my progeny. As your maker, I release you. You are my child, as I was the child of Godric. You were born into greatness. Your a maker now, our blood will thrive, do you understand?”

Denis O’Hare thought it was a brilliant performance as well, judging by this tweet!

    I totally agree, it was the best moment from episode 4. Not only shows the amazing chemistry between Alexander Skarsgård and Kristin Bauer, it also shows how amazing they are as actors.

    I thought the Eric and Pam scenes were heartbreaking – and the highlight of the episode. Kristin and Alex were terrific, as they always are.

    I am not ashamed to admit that cried like a baby. It was heartbreaking but such a tender moment as well as super sweet. Why Eric gets pinned as the ‘evil’ one is beyond me. That is another post!

    I love them together, I’m very happy to know that for many critics and many fans they were the highlight of the episode and as always were the highlight of the show, for two characters who began as supporting, evolved because his charisma, dedication and true friendship beyond work. I was touched when Kristin said she cried when she received the script, wept during the reading, and during and after the recording, just see the pictures and the friendship that they developed during those five years.
