There’s no doubt about it: Eric Northman is a changed vamp. He used to spend his time stunning locals with his man muscles and crazy Viking voice, but now he’s too worried about getting mud on Sookie’s rug to bother. There are way more important things in life than being really, really ridiculously good-looking, Truebies. Soaking one’s feet in a lukewarm tub of water come to mind.

Has Eric become totally emasculated post-amnesia, or is he his vulnerability sort of adorable? He might look like he’s about to cry all the time, but Eric still knows how to not wear a shirt, that’s for sure.
