    I can’t see it in UK but according to Eric & Sookie lovers site he says:

    “So, how does he envision playing Eric next season then? Well, first he recalled one very important moment before launching into some plans for Mr. Northman. “But when [Sookie] walks out, there’s a moment where he’s like ‘I’ve protected myself for centuries and this is what happens when you let a human in or a faerie human in’,” he said. “And so it’s gonna be interesting to see what happens with Eric, if he then goes back to being that guarded, protected guy or if he’ll continue to be open.”

    Personally – I think he’ll be guarded and maybe quite mean to her – at least to start with. I don’t think he’ll handle having his heart broken very well.

    Yes I agree…..he will be mean to her in the beginning of the season…..he has never been in love before….he has also never been rejected. But he does love her so when russell ed shows up to get revenge against eric, sookie and that hurt will go away and he will sacrafice himself for her.

    Idk I’m not so sure he’ll be “mean” so to speak as much he may not want to be bothered with her at all and just avoid her or refuse to see her, because he doesn’t want to have to be mean. I’m not even so sure he has ever experienced being truly in love as a human much less as a vampire, anyone who has knows it’s a Son of a *bleep* getting over your first true love and sometimes people will voluntarily turn into doormats to get it back. I love Sookie and I know she would never deliberately walk on his heart but I’m sure he feels like his heart is being tap danced on, but still just wants to get her back. In the start of season 4 I got the impression he was trying to woo her and change her feelings about him before the amnesia spell, i.e. buying the house & repairing the house fixing the door buying the microwave and building a place to go to ground in her house oh and him saying I knew you weren’t dead when Bill said he thought she was. I’m just not 100% convinced we will get the Pre amnesia Eric fully back he is and will be different going forward. Also I think Grandpa Russ will be gunning for Eric’s head on a platter first yeah Sook pissed him off but Eric took the love of His life, his precious Talbot.  I an anxious to see how it’ll all play out there are some really good hypothesis floating around here.

    I think your right russell ed will realize that eric is in love with her and use that to get his revenge on eric.
    Eric will put his life on the line to save her whether he is mad or trying to stay away from her. I think this is the first time in his life he has ever been in love.
