Things that a thousand-year old vampire wouldn’t do….
Okay—so let me begin by making clear that Eric Northman is currently my favorite character in both television and books; however, after watching the show, I often wonder how he’s still alive! I’m glad he is, and I don’t blame Eric for the dumb-fuckery. No—I blame the “creators” of the story that just don’t think it all through.
Sometimes, these little things just make me scratch my head and mutter, “WTF?” Do you feel the same?
These are just 2 of the things that make me go, HUH? Feel free to comment or add to these if you want.
- Would Eric really leave alive a 3000 year old enemy? Really? Why wouldn’t Eric think that Russell had “children” that he could summon to save him? What? He didn’t make any in 3000 years? (Dumb, Eric. Really dumb.) How did Eric get out of the cement? Pam. (Duh, Eric. Don’t you think Russell could do that too?) We could expect a bit of short-sightedness from Bill, but you, Eric? Chances of this getting a thousand year old vampire killed? 98%
- Okay—even if Eric’s plan to put Russell in the cement wasn’t idiocy, why—oh why—wouldn’t he have surveillance of the burial site? Or guards? And I don’t mean Alcide’s dim employee either (was his name Nate?). Anyway – this is NOT something a thousand-year-old vampire would do. Chances of this getting a thousand year old vampire killed? 90%
Again, these are just some of my current WTF issues about Eric’s behavior. I have others, but I’m interested to see if you all have anything to add.
