Following the plot line of the fourth Sookie Stackhouse book by Charlaine Harris, Eric will suffer from amnesia in the upcoming season of True Blood. In this video by HBO we see Eric wandering around in the woods…. lost…..
He looks like he’s only 21 years old here. At first, I thought this was a clip of Alex while working on a Swedish film years ago. This teaser, along with trying to make out the clues in the Paley Fest poster, have me in a spin. We’re going down an evil and extremely dark road this season I think.
Yes!! Sorry Bill Babe’s but this season is ALL about Eric and Sookie!!

I am happy to see Eric, Sookie, and everyone else, I love the TB characters. And I know I will be seeing a lot of my forever fave Mr. Bill Compton too!

I’m not sorry at all. In fact this is the season that I’ve been waiting for. This is when Alan Ball and his fantastic team of writers have the freedom to be as creative with Bill as they want. Bill isn’t going anywhere. Also I think that Alan Ball is going to continue on, as he always has, and develop ALL of the storylines and characters.
Wow, first season 4 clip! He does look so much younger here, looks like it’s going to be haircuts all round this season.

I noticed that as well! all their hair looks different.
This is gonna be HILARIOUS!
No surprise there!
My first thought upon seeing this clip was “why is Eric wearing clothes?” I’m no book purist but if we have to have the amnesia story let’s not waste the good parts. LOL

Eric is wearing pants when Sookie finds him in the books. People talk about him being naked, but he wasn’t. I’m sure they will flash his bare bottom at us at least once this season. :)

How the memory fades… thanks for setting the record strait.
Wow ! AS looks so young! It kind of sounds like Sookie’s voice.
Since I am NOT a bookie, I am looking forward to lots of surprises and lots of bloody good fun. Bring it on!
Thanks for the spoiler peek, Shad. Looking forward to Season 4, and seeing how everyone’s story line plays out. I agree … Alex looks very young in this clip.
OMG YAY so happy with this and I’m with everyone else he looks really young and innocent, very human :)
He looks like he is 12 years old. :) Yeah this was expected. I bet AB still has some surprises up his sleeve.
What he is 15???
Agreed Willkill…..it is not what people think it will be.
did anyone think that maybe it’s a flashback …I know I Know..not the book way. Or something connected to Sookie’s adventure. I don’t know…just stirrin it up. lol I read all the books, but AB with his twist and all. hum. :}
Wow, Eric looks so young and innocent. I cannot wait for the fabulous story line Alan Ball has created for my fav, Bill.
He looks like in Sookie´s first dream in season 2.
Yes, I am veary happy that they put this in, as I am not an eric fan, I am glad that they did include this from the books, I whould have been upset if they did not include this. I too am looking forwared to bills story line this season, it will be a good,sad, and tourcerous season for bill, one that will show us and give bill greater depth for his character.
Alex does look quite innocent in this video. What a bod!
Wasn’t Eric wearing some very brief red briefs in the book?
I found this storyline in the books full of cheese so i am keeping my fingers crossed that AB and writers take it a different direction and make it more believable…..and perhaps in typical TB fashion keep some humor with it. A 1000 year old vampire dosen’t just fall for any trick, especially not Eric so i am really hoping they pull this off. As much as a Bill fan that I am I am willing to sit through the Eric Sookie stuff as long as I can stomach it. I really think they all will have great storylines as long as the Fae stuff and the witch stuff is better played.

Isn’t this the book that AB read when he decided that it would make a great show? I expect great things with this season all around. I am hoping for some evil Fae and that the witch stuff is believable. I’m also curious what Bill will be doing this season too.
Alex looks much younger in the video and looks like he has on a bit of makeup. This seems like it might be a flashback of some sort….I don’t think it sounds like Sookie either, I could be wrong, but the voice is somehow different.
Jasperann Reply:March 7th, 2011 at 9:58
I agree. It doesn’t sound like Sookie. I would like it to be her, but I don’t think it is. I am however happy about Eric’s storyline.

I think it sounds like Pam?
Yes, yes, yes, yes!!!! I was so worried that they were going to skip this plot line! Embarrassing to admit, but this just made my day!!!
How funny that the commentator says: “with a dazed look in his eyes, Eric turns around, frightened, NOT LIKE THE “MONSTER” WE HAVE COME TO KNOW”….
perfection in commentary is what i call this.
