Be careful what you wish for.

Alexander Skarsgård is probably “True Blood”‘s biggest heartthrob. I’m sure there are lots of people who were thrilled to learn that he went full frontal on last night’s season finale. But you’d have to work real hard to find this scene sexy. Spoiler alert for last night’s “True Blood” season finale: The only moments we see his wång are when Skarsgård’s character Eric Northman is burning to death.

Skarsgård’s Eric was enjoying a fairy-blood-induced respite from the vampires’ sun allergy with a little mountaintop sunbathing, until it abruptly wore off, leaving him aflame from head to toe.

Anyway, here’s the clip. It’s not safe for work, obviously. Enjoy, I guess?

Look at what an innocent photo can do. “The East” director Zal Batmanglij tweeted a picture of co-stars Alexander Skarsgard and Ellen Page in an affectionate embrace along with the comment, “This reminds me of shooting.” The image sparked a slew of rumors that Skarsgard and Page are dating, but multiple sources confirm to Us Weekly that they are not in fact an item. Of course, the pair had to shoot down similar speculation a year ago when they attended a Stanley Cup finals game together. “They’re just two hockey fans,” a source explained at the time.
