True Blood is always ridiculous. I’m not sure there’s ever been a single episode of that show that hasn’t had at least one WTF moment. The show basically runs on WTF moments, but even given that consistent shock appeal, most fans still did a double take this week when Jason Stackhouse found himself in a gay sex scene with Eric Northman. The dude-on-dude, of course, turned out to be a dream sequence, but apparently, its existence is owed to a very real series of conversations.

The longer television shows are on the air, the more viewers start to notice patterns. Episodes tend to resolve themselves in certain ways. Seasons tend to follow the same arcs and certain characters tend to have a lot of scenes together. On True Blood, for example, Jason and Andy are in a lot of scenes together a) because they’re cops and b) because they have a pretty amusing rapport. The same could be said for Arlene and Holly on account of their waitressing. For whatever reason, however, Jason and Eric haven’t really gotten the chance to act opposite one another very much. So, they appealed to the writers.

Here’s what Ryan Kwanten, who plays Jason Stackhouse told E! Online
"It was somewhat hilarious because Alex(ander Skarsgard) and I really only saw each other at the table reads, which is maybe once every two weeks. We begged for the producers...to give us scenes together."

Obviously, everyone involved is a straight up pro and doesn’t have an issue with a little dude-on-dude if it pleases the gay fanbase, but something tells me this wasn’t exactly what they had in mind when they pleaded for more screentime together…



This is ordinarily the part of the article where I’d catch you up on what has happened so far on True Blood, but I don’t have that many hours available. In fact, it would probably be quicker for you to watch every single episode of the show ever produced than to read about all of the illogical, stupid and downright awesome plot developments that have happened. Suffice to say, it all makes sense in True Blood’s quirky little world, including Jason Stackhouse’s gay wet dreams.

True Blood airs on HBO on Sunday nights and is still very popular.
