True Blood’s Eric and Nora coupling: incest or just hot vamp sex?

“I’ll miss you sister.”
“I’ll miss you too my brother.”

Not exactly the conversation you would expect during sex, but on True Blood anything is possible.

Incest is a reoccurring theme on HBO these days with Game of Thrones steady in first place with the Jamie/Cersei incestuous relationship. True Blood gave us Bill and Portia, his great-great-great-great-granddaughter, technically speaking it was incest since both parties were blood related, but how related are they after so many generations?

What about Eric and Nora? Should we call their sexual relationship incestuous? They are “brother” and “sister” because they were turned by the same vampire, not because they have the same biological parents. No incest there one would say. But you could also argue that they are blood related because they were both turned by Godric, they both drank his blood and adsorbed his essence during the night they spent with him under the ground.

 

According to EW the scene scores 4 out of 5 on their creepiness factor

The Couple: Eric Northman and Nora (True Blood)
The Players: Alexander Skarsgård and Lucy Griffiths
Creepiness factor: 4 out of 5

Eric greeted the Authority-infiltrating Nora with a deep-throat kiss before introducing her to Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) as his sister. Technically, they share a sire instead of a bloodline, but that didn’t make Eric’s proclamation, ”We fight like siblings and f— like champions” any less whaaaaaat??!!-inducing. —Lanford Beard
