When I think of romance, love triangle isn’t usually the first thing that pops in my head. I am truly, truly a canon relationship girl, but every once in a while the chemistry between two people is just so hard to ignore that you can’t look away. You can’t not fall for them or feel those oh so real palpitations in your own heart when they look at each other.
This is exactly what happened to me when I started watching True Blood. Vampire Bill Compton is the love of half fairy/half human Sookie Stackhouse’s life. He was her first everything, so that means an awful lot. And man did he have what writer Alanna Bennett so epically tweeted about- “the look.” But, and this is a BIG but, my god, the way vampire Viking Eric Northam looked at Sookie, I could not help but wish he would get a chance to win her heart. My wish came true in season 4. Though their love story didn’t last as long as I had hoped, it had some truly unforgettable moments. Here are just a few of the times I fell for the romance of Eric and Sookie.
While Bill and Sookie have the central love story of True Blood, I couldn’t help the love I felt and still feel for Eric and Sookie. Their relationship seemed very one sided from the start, but looking back there was always an undercurrent of desire coming from Sookie-she even admitted it at the end of their affair. But boy, what could have been. Eric was more sincere, kinder, and never shy about what he wanted, but first loves are sometimes hard to shake. I often wonder what could have been if Sookie met Eric first…I guess that’s what fan fic is for, right?
If you want to fall in love with Eric and Sookie like I did or just wanna catch some kick ass vampire shit, you can watch all seven seasons of True Blood on Amazon Prime.
