This review just in from Gerry Weaver….Enjoy! I had no such issues with Alexander Skarsgard’s performance as Eric. Skarsgard is the strongest actor on True Blood and he is able to find and play many different levels in anything Ball throws his way. In his first scene, he is all sexy confidence as he flirts in the buff with Sookie while absorbing her news that Bill has been kidnapped. We soon realise he was in fact taken aback and very upset at the news, partly because he had his own designs on Bill and partly because Eric cares very much about his position as sheriff and feels the conflict of interest he has in regard to Bill’s safety. The actor really takes control of the screen in the scene with the Magister and Sophie-Anne, during which we watch Eric weigh his options on how to approach the Magister while subtly letting Sophie-Anne know how upset he is at the turn of events. Sophie-Anne is a lot less subtle in her reaction, as she literally grabs Eric’s balls to make her point. Eric, however, reacts with a snarl, and the scene is set for some very complicated power plays as the vampires try to escape the Magister’s tightening noose.
