Confession: I’m one of those latecomers who’s helping True Blood now earn record ratings, so I was sort of surprised when Eric (Alexander Skarsgård) topped EW’s recent “Who’s the hottest new vampire?” poll with 42 percent of the vote. After last night’s episode, however, I totally get it. There was that smirk he flashed when he tricked Sookie into drinking his blood to remove a second silver bullet. The way he casually rested with his arm behind his head like an ’80s centerfold as he admitted that he’d told “a tiny falsehood” (“You big lying A-hole!” “Bill, you’re right, I believe I can sense her emotions.”) Sookie’s revealing dream, of course. (If you think that picture is a spoiler, at least it’s a spoiler that makes you want to watch the episode immediately.) And then, how tall and tasty he looked walking away from Godric and toward Sookie on the roof.

What’s the precise moment that made Eric the hottest new vampire in your eyes? (Episode title/number strongly encouraged.)
