The Child Formerly Known As….

May 18, 2012 in Deadlocked - Book 12, Secondary Characters

EOC (Eric’s Other Child), now has a name! And she shall be called….”Karin”. With an “i”.

Thank the goddess we don’t have to keep calling her EOC for the next 10 months.

Ms Harris confirmed the name on her forum earlier today.

I will reveal Eric’s other child’s name. It’s Karin.

Charlaine Harris

While this may hardly be newsworthy for some, those of us who have already spent too much time talking about this woman (and will likely spend much time discussing her in the future!), are quite thrilled to at least have something to call her by!

Karin was first mentioned by Pam in All Together Dead, and mentioned a second time by Niall in Deadlocked. A brief summary of what we know of her to date:

  • She’s female (Pam)
  • She left Eric to strike out on her own (Pam)
  • As a vampire, she doesn’t “rival her maker” (Niall)
  • Thanks to Eric & Sookie Lovers for the heads up.

    Kristin Bauer van Straten – Sheriff Pam?

    June 23, 2011 in Amnesia Eric, Kristin Bauer van Straten, Pam, True Blood

    And the spoilers continue!

    The always charming Kristin Bauer van Straten has given an interview to the New York Post in which she talks about Pam’s arc for the upcoming season of True Blood.

    For the first time, it seems Pam will have her own storyline this year (can we get an AMEN?!). Obviously it will tie in somehow with Eric’s temporary incapacitation, and according to the interview this will involve her stepping up not only at Fangtasia, but in the “vampire hierarchy”.

    PopWrap: What excited you coming into season four?

    Kristin Bauer van Straten: I found out fairly early on that Pam is getting her own crazy storyline this season, which ramps up in the middle of the season…..We found out last season that this would happen and Pam would take over, so I’ve had all hiatus to wait for these scripts.

    That’s it. I’m kicking off the campaign right this minute – Pam for Acting Sheriff of Area 5, dammit. I want to see Pam schooling Bill (again), and I want to see it NOW.

    Kristin also talks about Pam’s killer wardrobe, and I don’t know about you all but I find the anticipation of what get up she’s going to appear in next almost as exciting as what is going to come out of her mouth.

    Kristin: No matter how dire things get – and I mean, they get real dire this year – she still dresses for the occasion. In modern life we throw on sweats to go to Starbucks. The world is ending and Pam stops to think, “What is the perfect world ending outfit.”

    She also drops a few hints about the Season 4 finale – and it sounds like shit is REALLY getting serious between the witches and the vampires.

    Kristin: Yea. We took five nights to shoot that scene, which is incredible support from HBO. And because it’s such a big scene, where so much happens and involves so many people, I think unprecedented is the right word. Without giving anything away, there is so much at stake with that scene. We’ve got a lot of people sucked into that dilemma, it’s quite something.
    …The way they’ve written the witches in this season is that what they do creates pretty interesting dilemmas for the vampires. It’s not a typical arm wrestle. It’s pretty creative how they have to combat one another.

    Well, well. Between the FOTS, the witches, and most likely a new Queen on the Throne…season 4 isn’t a great time to be a vampire.

    Alex on AE – “It’s a different side of the same guy”

    June 23, 2011 in Alexander Skarsgard, Amnesia Eric, Eric Northman, Pam, Shameless Fangirling, True Blood

    Wow, if I didn’t know better I would think Alexander Skarsgard has made it his personal mission this week to make sure a few pervasive “perceptual” errors are well and truly sorted before Sunday’s season 4 premiere.

    In an interview with the LA Times fanboy section “Hero Complex” (or maybe it’s the same interview as this one, I don’t know – there’s too much going on today and I simply can’t keep up), Alex continues his comments on what makes Eric tick:

    GM: And obviously his relationship with Sookie is undergoing a bit of a change.
    AS: She’s seeing this different side of Eric now, but it can’t be like she hated the old Eric, and now it’s the new guy and she likes the new guy and then he goes back to the old guy and she hates him. It has to be more complicated, more of a gray zone than that. It was just important for us to realize that it’s not like a completely different Eric. It is a different side of the same guy.

    As anyone who visits this site with any regularity is well aware, Amnesia Eric is kind of my pet subject. Along with the blood bond, it is one of the most misunderstood aspects of Charlaine Harris’ novels – and consequently the subject of some of the most absurd theories and character misperceptions going in our beloved little fandom.

    Cursed Eric is “Fake” Eric. He’s not “The Real Eric”. Sookie falls for a “stranger”. You know the ones, right? Oh, and of course there’s my personal favorite – Eric faked the amnesia episode entirely to get down Sookie’s pants.

    There’s interpretation of the text – and then there’s wilfully ignoring the text in favor of what you want to believe; simply because it fits your unshakeable notions about character motivation.

    Fortunately for the sake of our sanity and yours, Alexander Skarsgard has not only read Dead to the World, but actually grasped the point of it from his character’s perspective. And that can only mean good things for the coming season of True Blood.

    On Sookie:

    …She knows who he is and she knows that he’s dangerous and what he’s done in the past, but then she’s seeing this vulnerability and there’s goodness in there. I think she already saw that in Season 3, a little glimmer of hope there, and now she’s exploring it more. But I think it’s important to remember that that was already inside Eric, but he had this big wall built up around himself to protect himself.

    Onion Eric, anyone?

    Alex also has some wonderfully warm and funny comments about Kristin Bauer van Straten, loved by all as Pam:

    She’s amazing. She’s so much fun. She’s fantastic on the show, but she’s also the sweetest woman you’ll ever meet and completely different. She is the biggest crybaby you’ll ever meet. She cries when she talks about a situation where she cried a couple of days ago. That makes her cry — when she’s trying to explain why she cried, she cries again. Human goodness makes her cry. When someone does something beautiful to someone else, she cries her heart out.
