"True Blood" Season 4 First Look

 A lot of new info has been released regarding the fourth season of True Blood at the 28th Annual William S. Paley Television Festival in Beverly Hills.

 So far, creator Alan Ball has teased that this year will be mostly known as the "witch season", but what we did not know it that the most intriguing storyline affects one of the most beloved characters of the show: vampire Eric Northman.

*Spoiler Alert*

 It looks like Viking vampire Eric is about to suffer a big case of amnesia, causing him to forget who he was and all of the horrible things he has done in the past. For fans of the Sookie Stackhouse books this storyline will come as no surprise as Ball has apparently left it almost intact in its adaptation.

 Actor Alexander Skarsgård explained to the fans what´s in store for his character:

"He messed with the wrong people,"—and because he loses that crucial matchup, he also loses his memory and therefore his entire personality.

 This powerful character is just gone—it's not what we've built up over the past three years; it is just gone. And it's a lot of fun for me because it's the polar opposite of who Eric really is…He is lost. He doesn't know how he is, he knows he's a vampire, but he slowly finds out stuff, like, 'Did I do that? I killed those people? Why would I do that? Oh. Really?' It's not easy to hear—and not knowing who he can trust, who's a friend or an enemy. He's very vulnerable."

 Impatient already? Check out a video provided by PaleyFest 2011 with footage from the filming of True Blood´s fourth season below!
