Throughout season 6 of True Blood, there’s been speculation about a huge death happening. Were the rumors just referring to Terry, Nora or Steve, or is someone even closer to our hearts about to bite it? What we do know is that the scene at the end of the season’s penultimate episode — in which Pam tells Eric, “Don’t you dare leave me,” and he cocks his head and rockets away — nearly killed us. In yesterday’s Very VH1 Spreecast with Kristin Bauer Van Straten, she told us that she basically felt the same way.
“Whenever I imagine not seeing Alex [Skarsgard] anymore, I can immediately be emotional,” she told us of shooting that scene. “So Kristin is feeling that as well, because I just love being around Alex and Anna and Stephen and Deborah. We’ve gotten very close. It was really emotional for me and easy for me too.”
Wait, so does that mean she was saying goodbye to Eric? Well, Kristin wasn’t about to reveal that much. But here is what she could say about the season finale:
“[Pam’s] got two relationships in her life now, Eric and Tara, and they’re both important to her. We’re going to find out how important they each are in the finale.” OK, maybe just tell us how many times we’ll be crying during the episode. “I like to think that if I did my job, I will evoke some emotion. I won’t say which emotion, but I like to think I will move people in a direction.”
Gah! Just put us out of our misery!
