Is the June 13, 2010 season premiere date for the third year of “True Blood” too far off for your tastes? Yeah, ours too! Luckily, HBO has heard the cries of fangdom loud and clear, and while they aren’t speeding up the first episode’s release, they’re offering the next best thing — a series of “True Blood” teasers.
HBO will broadcast a new behind-the-scenes video of “True Blood” every Sunday for the next six weeks, and the first of these clips is certainly a doozy for fans of Eric Northman, the ageless Swedish vampire played by Alexander Skarsgard.
Beware of possible spoilers after the jump!
In the clip, Eric is flat on his back and covered in blood. But don’t panic just yet — not only do vampires have a reputation for liking blood, Eric himself seems to have plenty of strength as he wraps a fist around his tattooed assailant’s neck and shouts: “Who sent you?” The two are not alone, as Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) is nearby holding a revolver.
So what exactly is going on here? It’s a solid bet that Sookie and Eric have been ambushed by a werewolf, given the fact that these creatures are supposedly at the center of “True Blood” season three, but until that June premiere date, it’s just too early to say for sure.
