Alexander Skarsgard reveals what’s in store for the blonde bloodsucker

During Saturday’s PaleyFest panel, executive producer and show creator Alan Ball and the cast of True Blood revealed what’s coming up in the show’s Fourth Season. There’ll be fairies, Bill and Sookie clashes, a demon baby and amnesia to look forward to.

Eric fans will be interested in what Alexander Skarsgard had to say about the Viking vamp:

“He messed with the wrong people,” Alexander Skarsgard says. When next we meet Eric, he’s “definitely not stable.” And it gets worse, too. “He doesn’t know who he is anymore … Eric needs help.” Help from Sookie? Not exactly. “There are a lot of friendly people in Bon Temps kind enough to help,” the actor continues. But the bottom line is Eric is a changed man. “The powerful character he was is just gone. He’s the polar opposite of who he used to be. He’s just completely lost … and very vulnerable.”

This sounds as though the show are following the fourth book in the Sookie Stackhouse series quite closely, then. (SPOILER) We hope the writers will include the unexpected romance between Eric and Sookie (Anna Paquin). If the book is anything to go by, we could be in for the best season of True Blood yet.
