'True Blood' WTF: 5 Terrifyingly Beautiful Eric Moments From "Life Matters"

After last week's crazy awful stiletto murder, I was pretty worried that season 6 of True Blood would go out with a surreal whimper. But they managed to bring the show out of the blood-soaked mire with an episode that juxtaposed spectacular violence with real pathos, featuring a revival of the Eric-Bill Hero Team and a nice helping of Bon Temps folksiness at Terry's funeral. This is what can happen when you narrow things down to just two stories! I'd rather not do a bunch of screenshots of severed body parts, so today's WTF moments are all about Eric and the impressive array of emotions Alexander Skarsgard displayed in his scenes:

1. Vengeance Is His. I suppose the sloppy, Game of Thronesian nature of Eric's mass murder could be chalked up to him being high on fairy and Warlow blood. But he's clearly on this rampage in an effort to assuage his grief over Nora. Either way, it was terrifying to behold.
