We know we aren't the only Truebies who are mourning the potential loss of Eric Northman on True Blood right now. That's right — after six seasons, it looks like Eric may have finally met the True Death in the Season 6 finale after Warlow died, taking Lillith's blood with him, rendering Eric unable to day-walk. Poor Eric was reading naked in the middle of the day (as one usually does) when he burst into flames!
Sure, we're not entirely sure he's dead. After all, Pam was on the hunt to go find him after he vanished in the penultimate episode. But just in case this is truly goodbye (sob!), we wanted to look back at his finest moments. Eric and his fabulousness has gotten us through more than one boring True Blood plot line over the years, so without further adieu, here at 11 reasons we love Eric Northman, illustrated in GIFs.
The Way He Looks Shirtless
His Season 1 Hair
His Love for Godric
His Relationship With Pam
He's Scary in a Good Way (He Is a Vampire, After All)
His Dramatic Flair
His Fashion Through the Ages
He's a Badass
But Under It All, We Know He Can Care
