Just as Truebies celebrated their fathers yesterday, the vampires of 'True Blood' have a lot to thank their makers for. Few of the series' relationships are more robust than the bond between vampire maker and progeny. Just consider the (ever-evolving) connection between maker-progeny duos like Bill and Jessica, Godric and Eric, and Eric and Pam.
Today we continue our True Throwback series that celebrates the best of 'True Blood' with a round-up of what we're calling "maker moments," or touching occasions between a smattering of these indelible 'True Blood' duos.
In advance of the Season 7 premiere on June 22, enjoy seven such "maker moments" that recognize the many ways makers "parent" their progeny.
Teacher: Bill gives babyvamp Jessica a lesson in being a responsible citizen.
Giver: Pam presents Tara with a treat in the form of a very familiar face...
Protector: Eric spills a little blood to defend Pam.
Savior: Godric gives Eric (eternal) life.
Hostess: Lorena schools Bills on how a vampire throws a dinner party.
Cheerleader: Eric gives props to Pam.
Humanitarian: Eric promises to be gentle with Willa.
