GASP! The first look at Eric and Pam during the upcoming fifth season of True Blood, and now I can say that I’m totally intrigued. The YouTube clip (click here) has Eric accusing his darling child of digging up Russell Edgington… W-w-wHAT?! He says he doesn’t trust anybody. The second clip on HBO GO made me want to cry (click here). Pam turns it around on Eric: if he can’t trust HER more than Bill or a werewolf, then he has to say the words and release her. As per usual, Kristin Bauer Van Straten’s performance, even in this very tiny clip, is worthy of watching over and over. Those of you who have HBO GO, go there now because the video will be up only until tomorrow, April 30.
Will he say it, though? Will Eric be so mean to Pam as to release her? He was all kinds of pissed off when she shot that rocket launcher at the Moon Goddess Emporium with Sookie right in its sights, so perhaps he hasn’t forgiven her. As a matter of fact, I’m sure he hasn’t. But isn’t that a little harsh? Pam made a mistake, she said she was sorry and…let’s face it, just like in court: “almost” doesn’t count. The fact that she “almost” caused a tragedy doesn’t mean she did it. In a way I feel bad for her. She had a rough time last season, and Eric wasn’t himself enough to see her through it. I just want to see their relationship fixed. Pam needs to be with her maker, and Eric would miss her terribly…he does love her so.
