True Blood Exclusive: Look Who's Returning!

You already know that True Blood‘s upcoming fourth season will feature witches, werewolves and more Nan Flannigan. But here’s what I’m fairly certain you don’t know: It’ll also mark the return of vampire legend Godric!

TVLine has exclusively learned that Allan Hyde will reprise his role as Eric’s late, forever young-looking maker when the HBO drama resumes this summer.

The duration and exact timing of his stint are unknown. It’s also unclear what form the onetime vampire sheriff of Area 9 will take given that he succumbed to the worst sunburn in history during season 2. (He returned briefly from the great beyond in the season 3 finale to deliver a message to Eric.)

Blood EP Alan Ball isn’t offering too many clues, except to say that fans will see “a different side of Godric.”

    • No he will be making apperances in past memories of Erics, like when they showed how Eric was made. He will only be there as that.

      • That’s what I was thinking, too. But, it would be cool if he did come back as something more other worldly. I think it’s all about flashbacks of Eric just before being turned and for so long after til he left Godrick.

        • Yes I think he will return as flashbacks. Can not wait to see what happens next with Jason

        • Can he come back as a ghost? That would be so cool! I’ve seen it all and read it all in the books, but have I missed the ghosts? It would be a great twist and could even keep him in the show long term.

          • Can an undead creature come back as another undead creature? Growing up in New Olreans we are raised with open minds, but I don’t ever remember that theory……. can’t wait to see though

            Comment by naturalseer – March 4, 2011 07:04 PM PDT  
      • i totally agree. that’s exactly what i was gonna say. they’re gonna flash back and show things about Godric and Eric’s past and how they got to where they are now, etc. i highly doubt he’ll come back as himself in present time unless somehow the witches can bring him back….or there is some weird thing that protected him from actually dying like a ring made by a witch that prevents the wearer from dying (like on vampire diaries). These are all possible, but most likely he will just be in flashbacks. ya never know though ;) <3

      • I totally agree there’s a LOT of back story on trueblood. Especially Eric he’s over 1000 years old!

        Comment by Nicki Tattoo – February 24, 2011 11:50 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • …’meow’,…I LOVE IT !!…anyway…Eric is 1,000 years old, and AB has not given us much ‘history’…He’s the MOST ‘interesting’ character in the whole story besides Sookie! So, time for some past history…Godrick would, of course, have to ‘appear’ in Eric’s past.He is a ‘viking’..and I would like to see True Blood ‘write’ some script with viking-like behavior for Eric !! Alexander Scarsgard is wonderful actor; and ‘perfection’ as ‘Eric’. Time to give him some ‘beefy’ roles..and room to ‘stretch’ those gorgeous long actors legs!! Scarsgard is ‘magnetic’ on screen.( and off). Alan Ball cannot afford to waste another ‘season’…The ‘fans’ WANT …MORE SCARSGARD/ERIC !!…Season 4: It’s about time True Blood DELIVERS !!

            Comment by Sissy – February 24, 2011 02:57 PM PDT  
          • I couldn’t agree more! Eric is the man and I would love to see A LOT more of him (naked preferably) and hooking up with Sookie! I also hope to see the werewolf that befriended and helped Sookie free Bill. He was hot and should be seen more as well. Sookie and he had a thing too! Maybe she’ll be in some sort of love triangle thing between Eric and that werewolf (his name escapes me at this time). Wishful thinking! We’ll see!

          • My favorite character hasn’t made it into the show yet. I like Bubba from the books. They really should bring him in.

            Comment by Mike – February 24, 2011 09:04 PM PDT  
          • I would imagine Godricks return will be in flashbacks to illustrate Erics rise as vampire. Godrick alluded to Sookie he was to blame for Erics lack of emotions just before he burned, and perhaps we will see Eric telling Sookie about his past as they form a deeper bond. The way he feels for her makes him confront his lack of connections to anyone bar his progeny fabulous Pam.
            We know Godric was cruel and taught Eric to have no compassion so will we see his awakening to his humanity in season 4 ?

            Comment by Anna Karina – February 25, 2011 02:06 AM PDT  
          • Actually Eric is over 2000 years old because he told that idiot preacher that he was there back when his savior walked the earth and would have like to have met him, remember?

            Comment by M Whitley – February 25, 2011 05:44 PM PDT  
          • no Godric was over 2000 years old. Eric is 1000 years old. He said this in The Fellowship of the Sun church in season 2 when Eric was chained with silver. I just rewatched all seasons last month. I know it gets confusing after not seeing it for awhile.

            Comment by elizabeth – March 8, 2011 06:15 AM PDT  
        • I’m with you, i think it will show alot of back story..maybe with Godric being more ruthless in his younger days!!

      • I think sharon is right he will probably come back as Erics memories or conscience. Oh yeah and them being SS Waffen was an awesome touch.

        Comment by Justen from LONG ISLAND – February 24, 2011 04:51 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I agree that could be. What I was thinking more than that is they might bring Godric back as Erics Jimminy Cricket so to speak. IF they keep the plot line from the fourth book in the series, Eric shoudnt be having many flashbacks.

        Comment by Danielle – February 24, 2011 08:16 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • That’s what I was thinking… if they follow the basic storyline of book 4, Eric won’t be having flashbacks. I’m really excited that Godric is returning, though. I think they realized they made a big mistake killing him off so quickly, and they’re trying to figure out how to keep bringing Godric back in. The fans of the show seem to love the guy!

          Comment by Jenn – February 25, 2011 04:35 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Yes, my very thought, he’ll appear in flashbacks but not in contemporary time.

    • I thank he will return as a daywalker just like sookie is. And if I’m wrong there’s a chance he will be in between wearwolfs/vamp…because he was erics maker and if he comes back as a daywalker that’s gana give eric the urg so to speak..to change him bk to vamp. Or will eric end up with sookie? Suspencfull !!!

          • You shouldn’t really compare the books to the show if you are trying to establish character history. There are so many discrepancies (not complaining, just sayin’) that they are too losely based to have hard facts from them.

            Comment by shane – February 26, 2011 03:17 PM PDT  
          • The Books are written by Charlaine Harris, and they are referred to as either the “Sookie Stackhouse” Series or the “Southern Vampire Mysteries”. Each book has a different title but all of them have “Dead” in the titles. “Dead Until Dark” is the first one, then there’s others such as “Living Dead in Dallas”, “Club Dead”, “Dead as a Doornail”, etc…the other folks here who have commented about the similarities between the books and the Show are right, they have veered away from the books, they keep some details, but they are definately taking artistic freedoms on the show. I like them both, but you can’t count on the show doing the same thing as the books do. For instance, Lafayette was the one that was found dead in the car rather than that voodoo woman in the books, and the story line involving Maryann was much more elaborate in the show than in the books..etc…

    • I hope this season will include the storyline from the books where Eric loses his memory and Sookie takes care of him; but, with AB’s spin on it. That would be a great way to bring Godric (whether real or imagined) to help Eric remember!

      • Totally agree. My favorite part of the books was when Sookie found Eric naked on the road with amnesia. Whole new vulnerable side of Eric. Hope they use that storyline.

  • Perhaps we will see more of the Godfrey/Godric as he was in the book “Living Dead in Dallas.” That would definitely be a different (as in not heroic and not angelic and not good-guy) side of Godric. Just a thought.

        • In the books Godric was not Eric’s maker. In addition to his part in “Living Dead in Dallas” “madness was visited” on Godfrey in Russia by a Maenad and it required the help of quite a few vampires to “clean-up” the mess he made. This madness clean-up is mentioned again in “Dead in the Family” when we met Eric’s scary maker.

          • I have read all the books and watched all the seasons. The two while slightly related have to be taken in separately. They are so different. I didn’t start reading the books til after the second season and was so shocked to find how much was changed between the books and the television. Love them both though. I do think that Godric will return in flashbacks. Whatever they do though I am really looking forward to this new season.

    • I think that the image of Godric from Living Dead in Dallas would be very interesting…good call!!
      I wonder if Eric will feel a little bit off kilter since he has been seeking to avenge his family’s slaughter since before he was made vampire. Now he has exacted some of that vengeance and may feel like his purpose is at least partially alleviated. He will have to find something new to renew his purpose and reason for being…living so long can be tiresome since I would imagine he has seen so much that nothing is really surprising anymore…Godric may play deeply into that…will he also have a self serving purpose to resurface? hmmmmmmmmm….I LOVE TRUE BLOOD!!!!

    • I tend to believe that it will be more of the dark side of godric too. Vampires to begin with were evil to begin with especially with the thirst according to the books and the show. I think I’d like to see something more akin to the books.

  • I guess just more flashbacks. I would watch an entire spin-off series of the escapades of Eric & Godric over the years.

    • I love Godrick. It would be cool to see how he was in his early years. Just has such an intelligent way of speaking. I’m sure that would be totally different, probably a lot more violent !!!!! :]~

        • Oh Sookie will be with Eric. And Eric still has Russell to deal with the show ended with Russell vowing to kill Eric. The books were alot differnt but Sookie and Eric will be together.

    Comment by jess – February 24, 2011 09:19 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Oh cool!! I hope they don’t get too tenuous with his return – I’m thinking perhaps this will be more of a return of the actor than Godric, like an identical looking, long lost blood relative? Either way, looking forward to it! Skn x

  • I’m sure its flashbacks, but with Mr. Ball bringing Godric back as some kind of angel who knows?

    How can you really tell what is going to happen in the show? If you read the books then the show makes no sense.

    Comment by denise – February 24, 2011 09:34 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I agree…he’ll most likely be back in flashbacks.

      Can’t wait to see him!

      BTW (on Godric) most likely a flashback but you never can tell with Alan Ball…

      Comment by Krissy – February 24, 2011 11:02 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Since Godric has been portrayed as mild-mannered and calm in all his appearances, I’m hoping for some flashbacks of Godric and Eric terrorizing people.

    Comment by Lily – February 24, 2011 09:56 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I think he will return in a flashback and we will see the fierce vampire faces of Godric/Eric in different times :) I say bring it on!
    I hate/love that we got no spoilers for Sookie/Eric ;) I’m sssoooo excited for this season :D

    Comment by Freyja – February 24, 2011 09:57 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I think godric will return as a human also. Like he will walk back into Eric’s life but he won’t remember anything

    Comment by Shayla – February 24, 2011 09:58 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I think it will be in flash backs while Eric is suffering from memory loss.

    Comment by Jenny – February 24, 2011 09:58 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Well if ya’ll read the books ya’ll would know that Eric was also sexually involved with godric but the show has changed so much from the books i dont even know

    Comment by Menthol_suicide – February 24, 2011 09:58 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Actually Eric was not involved with Godfrey/Godric in the books. Eric’s maker was Appius Livius Ocella. Godfrey was Farrell’s maker.

      Comment by AH – February 24, 2011 10:18 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Thank you for posting this! Godric was NOT Eric’s maker in the books. My fear for Season 4 is that they will continue to deviate from the books and we won’t get nearly enough of Eric & Sookie!

        Comment by XmenMommy – February 24, 2011 10:27 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Since Eric is reported to have amnesia, I think it is safe to assume that Godric’s return will be in the form of flash backs as Eric is trying to “remember” who or what he is.

    Comment by trubie2thecore – February 24, 2011 10:00 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • That is what I’m thinking, but that is according to books, and we all know how well the series is sticking to the books. Not that I mind, I like the differences, although I’m all for the the Eric/Sookie Nookie!!!!

      Comment by audra – February 24, 2011 11:05 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • OH my! LMAO with the phrase “Eric/Sookie nookie” !
        LOVE the books and the Series, totally consider them only slightly related.
        I’m going to enjoy seeing Godric’s dareker side in flashbacks, but going to enjoy the amnesiac Eric more I think…

        Comment by DresdenMom – February 25, 2011 05:45 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Yes! I love the way the books did Eric and Sookie’s first “encounter”…very steamy! I hope they put forth as much detail in the tv series on this.

        Comment by Jen K – March 5, 2011 10:22 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I agree with a lot of the comments that it will be flashbacks between godric and Eric and I also agree that I hope it shows the way godric and eric terrorized humans….I wish he wouldn’t of crisped to death in the second season cuz I would like to see his reaction to what Eric is doing and how he is handling this….

    Comment by Theresa Ann – February 24, 2011 10:03 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Awesome,I love Godric! Im thinking that he may have the opportunity to return to live as a human since he tried to make amends for all he did against the living mortals.He may have a chance to live as one and feel their fears and also their joys. Imagine if that was it and then after living the season as a human,the season finale could be him getting the opportunity to become a vampire once more.Will he take it or won’t he?! Just an idea,LOL!!

  • After reading the books I think Godric will be back in the form of flashbacks due to Eric’s amnesia. BUT I hope it’s more than that. Maybe we will even see the side og Godric we read about in “Living Dead in Dallas”.

    Comment by virginia – February 24, 2011 10:07 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Yes probably he will come back as a human, like a recycled form since Godric came out of the world a long time ago and Eric will spot him and probably have sex with him before he turn him into a vampire. Lol! But seriously I can’t wait for the next season….I’m so excited!

  • He’ll comeback hunan. Eric will seduce n get Sookie n Bill will find human Godric n turn him so he will b Bills which will piss Eric off cause he does love Sookie but he also luvs his xmaker n now he has to lose one cause he can’t have both. Will b a great Eric Bill showdown

    Comment by Bubbles – February 24, 2011 10:13 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Godric isn’t even Eric’s maker in the books. But I’m going to have to agree with those who’ve said flashbacks. It’s the only thing that would make sense. Who knows, we’ll just have to wait for the season to start and/or more spoilers.

    Comment by person – February 24, 2011 10:17 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I’m guessing it will be in flashbacks. In the 4th book aren’t there flashbacks of Eric’s early vampire life?

    I just want to see Eric and Sookie hook up finally.

    Comment by Veronika – February 24, 2011 10:17 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • He’ll appear in flashback, of course. And the different side we’ll see will be the less kinder/gentler version than the one we saw in current day. More than likely he was a vicious killer in the past.

    Comment by Peyton – February 24, 2011 10:19 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I so can’t wait to see Godric in any form. He could come back in flashbacks or any form for that matter, I think they made a big mistake killing Godric off so soon in the show.

    • Vampire Diaries is not an imitation. In fact, the book series came way before TB and Twilight. But it’s very true TVD capitalized on the success of the other two. And Interview With a Vampire was a movie.

  • I think Godric will come back and guide Eric what to really do with Russell Edgington; because I think some how Godric wants his revenge on Russell too maybe. Either way I want to see Russell get his just desserts one way or the other; wether Eric or Godric finishes him off!

  • He’s coming back in Flashbacks i’m fairly sure they wouldn’t make him some fake creature… he’ll be in Eric;s flashbacks so we can learn more about Eric.. plus Skarsgard implied as much in interviews and such.

    Comment by Charles Brown – February 24, 2011 10:37 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Either:

    He’ll come back as an angel, but I hope not.

    Or, he’s only come back in ghost form to attempt to give Eric more advice. Maybe he’ll appear to Sookie and convince her that Eric is deep down… not completely evil, which will eventually lead to Sookie dating Eric. (It’s bound to happen at some point, it is a drama- happy couples can’t exist for too long)

    Possibly Eric could face some emotional breakdown and begin seeing Godric everywhere.

  • I think Godric will be revived throuogh Eric’s memory. Therefore guiding him to do the right things and maybe warning him of future events that will take place between him and Bill. Afterall he did bury Eric in cement. Maybe this is how he will embelish his revenge on others!!!!

    Comment by gmsmith – February 24, 2011 10:44 AM PDT  Reply To This Post

    This I truly believe.

I loved every book and I hope so much that she graces us with more. I also love the show and everyone in it. Calm down, they will do right by the books and the fans of the show so everyone is happy. If they don’t, then we’ll talk again.
