Imagine him as Eric! Or Bill! Or Sookie! Can’t we have a dream sequence where this happens? It would be pretty much the most amazing thing ever.
Bill taking a nice ride on Erics back
Last one. I’M SORRY BUT I CAN’T HELP IT, OKAY.
Oh. My. GOD. Eric giving Bill a piggyback ride.
Eric giving Bill a piggyback ride.
ERIC. GIVING BILL. A PIGGYBACK RIDE.
I might have a new favorite season 5 moment.
Fifteen minutes in I want to call this week’s episode of True Blood “Russell Edgington and The Super Real Conversion, No Seriously, I Sooooooo Believe In Lilith Now!”
The actor looks like he’s having tons of fun. He’s the new Steve Newlin for as long as they keep not giving me the real Steve Newlin.
(This scene with Alcide and the werewolf chick is so boring I’m going to go into a coma, btw, which is why I’m writing this now.)
(Oh wait, now Martha’s in it and it’s awesome. Laters!)
The hardest thing about re-watching season 2 of True Blood whilst watching season 5 is Steve Newlin. Especially because I’m watching with people who have never seen the show before. I start giggling uncontrollably EVERY TIME HE IS ONSCREEN.
In his very first S2 appearance, he’s arguing with Nan Flanagan on TV. It took every ounce of self-control I possess not to shout, “NAN FLANAGAN, MEET THE NEW NAN FLANAGAN!!!”
And the first time he meets Jason, at the end of their conversation he lays his hand on Jason’s cheek with a gentle “May God’s holy light shine upon you.” COME ON, TRUE BLOOD. YOU’RE JUST TRYING TO MAKE ME DIE SCREECHING NOW.
