Wow! Eric's going to die?
I doubt he dies. I think something crazy will happen when he sees godric (not a spoiler, it was in the preview). I have a feeling it will have something to do with the woman that works at merlotte's now (the witch lady), because they haven't specified her purpose for being there. the way they are setting it up is like: lafayette and jesus will be "good" witches, and the new lady will be a bad witch. or maybe jesus will be bad too, don't know where they will go with it yet. but I seriously doubt that eric dies only because he is a large reason that many females watch the show. it seems like they are actually setting it up for sookie and eric to be together (look at what she told bill in the car).
