Well I understand that some people were disappointed by this scene (partly because of the comparison to the books) but I felt it was very meaningful and meant a lot for this couple…
^^^Sookie does not need to wash away the blood now. Eric is the True Blood…
Eric and Sookie once again show that they trust eachother completely (looking into eachother’s eyes for a very long time and touching eachother’s head areas) and literally want to get lost in one another. Simply, they want to take care of each other (caressing eachother’s cheeks gently). Such a show of affection shows that their love is real.
Rubbing backs/butts constantly indicates the sensual nature of their relationship, yet also equality in the relationship. How? It pleases your partner to rub their body but also indulges your sexual desires.
This also shows the sensual nature of their relationship as well as their mutual trust but we also see that touching the neck in such a manner and indicating trust through touching the neck would be especially meaningful considering he is a vampire.
Obviously, Sookie is embracing everything about Eric during this scene…including his viking side (which is obviously representive of the setting they are in). In addition, we also hear her saying that she loves “everything.” This means she didn’t think it was possible to love this viking side but now she does. After their blood bond, they are connected in all ways and they are inside each other and Sookie is even inside his human side now.
Woods are representive of dreams as “natural change.” This change is natural between them and not actually forced, despite the spell.
Again Eric and Sookie are showing equality in the relationship by switching back and forth from Eric on top to Sookie on top. When a man likes a woman on top it means he makes pleasing the woman his priority during sex; her needs can come before his sometimes and he doesn’t mind being dominated at times. (Remember that Sookie tried to reclaim dominance with Bill by being on top during their last sex scene together but as we saw- it was a struggle from Sookie and here Eric is letting her doing it as they gently make love).
Clear skies on a snowy day obviously show how bright their future together would be. The sky is the limit although the trees may represent the obstacles in their way. Although there are obstacles, the snow reaches them (everything is possible and they will see it through).
If it was rain instead of snow it would symbolize a purficiation of their relationship. However, the snow suggests none is needed like there was no water in the shower needed. But snow that includes brilliant sunlight (apart from symbolizing Eric himself) indicates that they will both realize the full scope of their power as a couple and overcome all of their adversities.
Again, they are connecting and totally lost in one another by looking into each other’s eyes and caressing the other’s face with a type of cupping and caressing motion. By being so close head-t0-head with the intertwined arms they are showing their trust and proving once again that their love is real.
It’s not possible!
Everything is possible…
(for Eric and Sookie)
