Fans of True Blood have been teased by talk of a same-sex storyline in the supernatural hit, and now the show’s boss reveals that the season two finale, in which Sam Merlotte drank Bill Compton’s blood, has romantic consequences for the bar owner.

In Season three the two hunks fighting for Sookie’s love have forged a deep bond after Bill, played by Stephen Moyer, donated his blood to save Sam (Sam Trammell), reports

True Blood head honcho Alan Ball says that in season three, the men have  “not just any connection, an erotic connection.”

Ball also gives a sneak peek into another same-sex story line: Lafayette’s new love interest Jesus (played by Kevin Alejandro). Tara’s cousin “is very guarded and Jesus is a guy who is willing to knock down some of those guards,” he says.

“[Though] it’s not an easy relationship, they have a lot in common. They’re both shamans of sorts, healers, so there’s a reason they get brought together.
