Bill and Sam to 'Forge Erotic Connection' on True Blood


The forthcoming season of True Blood gets gayer by the week.

EW's Michael Ausiello reports on a conversation he had with creator Alan Ball:

"The show’s boss ... tells me that in season 3, the hunks will forge 'not just any connection, an erotic connection.' How erotic? Ball wouldn’t say. But at least he was more forthcoming with regard to another upcoming same-sex couple-to-be: Lafayette and his new love interest Jesus (played by Southland’s Kevin Alejandro). Bon Temps’ resident V peddler 'is very guarded, and Jesus is a guy who is willing to knock down some of those guards,' he says. '[Though] it’s not an easy relationship, they have a lot in common. They’re both shamans of sorts, healers, so there’s a reason they get brought together.'"

  1. I love the words "erotic connection". Much better than "gay". "Gay" is overused, overly commercial, and has different meanings. Ditch "gay".

  2. So is all this just a big Vamp bites dog story?

  3. Oh, Jason. You'd know why he doesn't use "gay" if you've ever seen the show. When a human drinks from a vampire (as Sam did from Bill in last season's finale) they develop an "erotic connection." It's the same connection Sookie has with both Bill and Eric.
