Posted in Uncategorized

I’m pretty sure the title of the episode is that.

Anyway, here’s the link. Start the track when the HBO sound/logo fade out and we should be pretty much synched up.

    I’ve never understood why Eric speaks modern Swedish. It’s fun for me as a Swede but he would speak Old Norse. Maybe it was easier to not have to think about getting a translator and just let Skarsgård do his thing. However, it does feel sort of like having a character from ancient Rome speak modern Italian instead of Latin.

    • It’s been so many years. I guess he moves with the times. He doesn’t seem to be someone who isolates himself from the world around and dwell on the old times. That’s my explanation.

      in the later episodes when they flash back to his human self (or younger vampire self) is he speaking modern Swedish or old Norse? That info would clarify this dilemma.
      Also, I forget when Pam was made vampire so maybe she’s young enough that she wouldn’t speak old Norse?
      Thanks for the comment. Much to puzzle over 🙂

      • Also Jenny, how come you didn’t comment on Eric’s wig? My mind is blown!

        Throughout the series, he speaks modern Swedish. Pam is English in the books and American in the series, if memory serves, so there’s really no reason for her to know Swedish or old Norse.

    As a non-book person, the first time I watched the series, I had no clue about sam dog aside from something weird was up with Sam…. so yes, the end of this episode was even more WTF the first time around.

    But even knowing what he’s doing, does he really need to roll around in it to get the scent?

    I think Jason’s V adventure is in part world building about V… but also starts him down the addiction path which leads to Amy and kidnapping sweet vampire Eddie…

    Thanks again for doing this re-watch! It’s easy to forget how great the first few seasons of this show are.
