Whisper-Talkers Tourney Day 8: TVD’s Klaus versus True Blood’s Eric

It’s day 8 of our Best Whisper-Talkers Tourney. Two days ago, we began the right side of our bracket with Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘s Angel and The Secret Circle‘s Adam going head to head. Angel beat out Adam and is the victor; he will be moving on to the quarterfinals later on in the week. Right now, we’ve got two other vampires going toe to toe: it’s everyone’s favorite bad boys from The CW’s The Vampire Diaries and HBO’s True Blood.

Whether Klaus is threatening Elena and company or Eric is giving orders (or acting like Sookie’s plaything), these two whisper — definitely. But the question is: which whisperer do you like most? Will it be the Vampire Diaries‘s Big Bad or will it be True Blood‘s bad boy love interest? Time to decide below!

    whut? Eric Northman of course.

  • katherine_fan

    “Klaus is threatening Elena and company”??Michael,you’re joking,right??Eric may have lost some of his badassery (is that a word??) last year,when he became Sookie’s lapdog,but this year he was definitely on his way back to his former self (if we can forget the whole incident with Pam at Fangtasia).Klaus is not a threat to anyone!!Eric for the win!!

  • Jessica

    It’s like people have forgotten all the people Klaus has killed and hurt. Do I really need to make a list?

    • katherine_fan

      in season 3??Who did Klaus kill??

    • InvestedInYourFuture

      Please do, beacuse so far the “people that matter that Klaus killed” list ends with Jenna…also known as that character whom no one even remembers in the show anymore.

  • Kell

    How are people letting Klaus win…dude is hardly a villain. Had a ton of build up only for it to amount to nothing in the end.

  • aleph

    Klaus is the best, bitches.

    why is klaus even on this list? hes nothing eric for the win!

  • Lexie66

    Seriously, I love Eric but Klaus is the best!

    I like Klaus because he is cruel and machiavellian, but also very vulnerable and romantic. He keeps saying that love is the greatest weakness of a vampire, but he himself has a pathological need of love for centuries. It is unstable and psychotic, and he stabbed her whole family just because they love them so much that he could not stand they leave, it slowly falls in love with Caroline, but at the same time it continues to hurt the person she loves.

    I love Eric in season 1 and 2, but I hate what they did to his character, especially in Season 5. In season 5 he could have become the big bad it was before but it was Bill who took this role, while Eric is turning into a pale imitation u Bill of season 1.

    Klaus of course !!!

    • katherine_fan

      I think you mean “HIS” whole fam not ”HER”…haha!! :)

          I’ve made several grammar or spelling errors,too!Don’t feel bad! :) It certainly wasn’t my intention!

    Klaus Joseph Morgan is the biz he has lived longer the eric notrhman

  • Erica Northman

    Vampire viking God or the pussy whipped pony drawer who was supposed to be the villian? Huh hard choice. And btw, Klaus is not older than Eric.

    • http://twitter.com/jennyad Jen Dickson

      Drawing that pony was really the worst thing that could have ever happened to Klaus’s character.

      • Lola

        Become little bitch Sookie and Bill was the worst thing that could happen to Eric.

        • katherine_fan

          Actually,I loved Eric and Bill together in season 5!

          • CCarolinee

            drawing that “pony” was the best thing that could happen. In every evil theres also good, u cant have only one…:P…Btw, Eric….XD…No thank u….I think True blood its twisted btw, I tried wathchin it for one episode and it was…sick. Im sorry, but thats the only thing I think about True blood…

          • Tvdboss

            CCarolinee is right, dude, true blood is some kind of porn

      • katherine_fan

        His drawing-for-Caroline obsession really pissed me off when he burned his sketches after he thought she had betrayed him!!And the whole begging her for her attention thing was a totally WTF moment!!But the moment I stopped rooting for Klaus (as a character) was when he showed he didn’t even care that his brother had just died and he only wanted Bonnie to unlink the siblings only to protect himself not his family.And a million other things he did since then that I’m too bored to write!!

  • Kelly

    Klaus has hardly been a threat. His potential is a good villain was ruined after season two. They turned his character in to someone who people suddenly feel the need to sympathise and coddle. ( Which is sad and normal for this show cause they lack to ability to write the non human villains as villains.Instead they constantly make the humans the bad guys and make it seem as if these vamps can do no wrong) He’s been put in to yet another foolish triangle on this show. Wasting his time drawing ponies and breaking up teenage relationships doesn’t make a villain. If they KEPT him as a villain and continued the hybrid storyline – which was a waste of time in the end – and didn’t waste the build up of him supposedly being intimidating and badass for him to amount to NOTHING but yet another guy chasing after Caroline, THEN there would be something to talk about. Boo hoo he killed aunt Jenna. So what. He stopped being a villain and a well written character ages ago. In fact now is character serves no purpose other than pulling obsessed fangirls in to watch a 2nd triangle.

  • farymah kh

    JUST KLAUS. HE IS THE BEST OF EVERY ONE.

  • Kim

    Eric would eat him for breakfast. :P

    • Lola

      While Eric is not busy to cry on Sookie?

      • whateva

        Eric would still eat him though because will be too busy drawing some lame unicorn for Caroline while crying. Sookie or not. Sookie didn’t stop Bill or Eric from killing people, yes they are enamored by magical vajay jay but I still recall even amnesia Eric ripping out hearts in front of Sookie.

        • cacherr1

          meant to say Klaus will be too busy crying and drawing Caroline a unicorn. Klaus was the most ineffectual villain and I actually don’t remember Klaus killing anyone other than those two girls in the premiere, which was more Stefan doing than him.

          • Lola

            LOL! So how Klaus stop all his plan when he started to love Caroline?
            He started to love Caroline in episode 11, yet in episode 12 and 14 continue to handle itkill all those who oppose him in episode 14 and 15 it was clearly interested by Carolineyet in episode 18 he still threaten Bonnie and almost kill Jeremy, and in episode 19 he letDamon Rebekah torture for hours in episode 20 he came to the dance decade for Caroline but a few minutes after he almost killed the half-brother of Bonnie in episode 21he étgait loan from Elena, and it almost destroyed his house, then he is going to saveCaroline, but after a few minutes he emptied Elena his blood.
            Uh, seriously, you said that Klaus stop his plans because of Caroline?

            P.S : I post the message twice error exists, sorry.

          • CCarolinee

            cacherr1:
            totally agree :)! Love u for saying that XD :D ;)

        • Klaus

          And die from the werewolf venom
          Mistake number 1: stupid move eating a poison-filled hybrid
          Mistake number 2: don’t underestimate klaus, he is crazy strong. Sure Eric is older, but he is just a plain vampire. An original + hybrid = specialness. And a recent ep of the originals, klaus was full on ambushed by thousands of vamps including another original and chains and weapons but it was no problem he went spaz and almost killed them all no mercy

    • CCarolinee

      Dont be so sure ;)

  • http://twitter.com/jennyad Jen Dickson

    I’m not gonna lie, I haven’t actually even watched True Blood in like 3 seasons. Klaus just annoyed me this season and I loved Eric in the first couple of seasons, so. :)

  • Lucia

    TeamKlaus all the way he just has a charm that you cant resist he can be real bad then good sometimes when he wants to be but never the hero I just love him lots <3

  • CCarolinee

    Klaus forever, and Klaroline also :D <3

  • farima tava

    klaus is number 1…

  • angelb

    klaus was drawing pony but everybody forgets season 4 eric.
    klaus is complex vampire while he is drawing pony he can threat people,torture people nat same time.he killed jenny,killed elena(he tought he killed),he killed jules,he killed and turned tyler into a hybrid,he made stefan a ripper,he killed his own mother.if klaus wants to draw a pony he draws,he wants to kill ,he kills.he does what he wants but eric???
    no ,he does because it is right not he wants
    so klaus is best sorry
    drawing pony does not make klaus a pussy
    he is an artistic psycopat like hannibal lecter:)

    • cacherr1

      no one forgets season 4 Eric but big difference is season 4 Eric had amnesia which last time I check Klaus’s lack badassery had nothing to do with losing his memory. Most of the things you are talking about when it comes to Klaus happen in season and the first few episodes of season 3, once he founded out he needed Elena to make hybrids, he became a non-threat. Also he made many empty threats. Like I said can someone name any person of significance who Klaus killed in season 3? No. Eric does what he wants, Sookie be damned.
      Drawing ponies does make him a wuss because he later burn the photos because he was upset Caroline betrayed him even though he knows Caroline has never shown remote interest other than hate. Is he really a psychopath? As all I in season got a whiny little bitch who only was winning because Team Salvatores and allies suck and are dumb. I say that as someone who is very much in love with Jopseph Morgan, and really does not see the appeal of Eric or Alex. Angelus was an artistic psychopath, he was drawing Buffy while her ass was sleeping and left it there when she woke so he eff with her head. He drew a picture of Jenny dead and left for Giles. That is a psychopath. You know how you can make a romantic psychopath, turn him into a Franklin (from season 3 TB) or a Phantom of the Opera character. Both were very in love and were complete psychos to boot. Klaus isn’t what I refer to being even crazy which is why for me his dynamic was so off.

      • Lila

        Klaus killed all katrine”s family, his father and mother, he killed 12 hybryds, taylers mother,a lot of wolfs with that grup when he traveled with stefan, he commpeled Isobel to kill herself, all of the five( hunters), Jules,, Jenna, Elena for a while,, Ray, Tyler girl wichich name i don’t remember (dinner with Salvatores) and Alaric one time too( but he alive).Also he manipulate people, hurt them he can’t be killed Who’s the baddass now? ;)

        • Niklaus

          Yea that’s right!
          Klaus is the best villain
          Not to mention he daggers his family continually
          &bit his brother which, since he is a hybrid, injected him with dangerous wolf venom
          Anyone, anytime, anywhere

  • buffy46
