We’re trying to be coy with most of our Eric Northman information right now for “True Blood” season 7, and there is one major reason for that: The twist that keeps him around on the show this year is meant to be a big surprise. All that has been confirmed publicly (at least at this point) is that Alexander Skarsgard is still a series regular, and is likely not going anywhere.
While we are not going to be able to tell you (and nor would we want to) whether or not Eric is going to be around for the entire season, at least one of the people he works with for much of the season should not be too great of a surprise at all. For evidence of that, just look at some of the events at the end of season 6. This story will help to make Eric’s story feel more like it did in the earlier seasons, and not where he was so wrapped up in Sookie’s world every second of the day.
In case you missed it earlier this month, Alex gave a pretty substantial hint as to how his character may have managed to survive being burned to death by the sun. Here’s what he had to say on the subjects to TV Guide:
“He’s surrounded by a lot of wet snow … That might give you a hint [about Eric’s fate]. The environment of northern Sweden helps him quite a bit.”
Don’t expect the show to spend a whole lot of time dwelling on how Eric manages to make it through this, though. There are only ten episodes of this final season, and there is quite a bit of action that is therefore going to be crammed in.

TRUE BLOOD SEASON SEVEN EPISODE ONE SPOILERS REPEATE SPOILERS
True Blood – Jesus Gonna Be Here – Preview

KA REVIEWS TRUE BLOOD
True Blood is back for it’s seventh and final season and they’re taking no prisoners. Last time we left our friends in Bon Temps, a deadly group of Hepatits V infected vampires were descending upon a mixer at Bellefleur’s Bar, formerly Merlotte’s. The opening scenes will leave viewers speechless as one of Bon Temp’s long-time residents is taken down in the fight. The past couple seasons have mostly taken the action out of the town of Bon Temps. Well this season is here to bring it back to the beginning, having most of the action based in Sookie’s hometown and focusing on the core characters.
The premiere episode is full of fast paced action and jaw dropping moments, in typical True Blood style. Also during the melee at the mixer, several of characters are swiftly kidnapped by the infected creatures. We’re also introduced to several members of a vigilante group who is entirely against vampires, infected or not, as well as any humans who associate with them. Much of the premiere is focused on Sookie and Alcide, Bill and Andy, Jason and Violet and Jessica trying to find or protect their friends and loved ones. Another character who is looking for something she’s lost is Pam. She is trying by any and all means necessary to find where her maker has disappeared to, and nothing will stop or distract her from finding him.
The first episode of the season sets up the final season as dark and deadly. Everyone is at risk of losing their lives and the entire town points their fingers at Sookie. Who will survive and who won’t? Only time will tell!
“Jesus Gonna Be Here” premieres on Sunday June 22nd at 9 PM ET on HBO.
