Anyone remember watching a young adult drama entitled Felicitiy starring Keri Russell? Yeah… the last season had a… ahem… time travelling storyline. So, Truebies… buckle up… don’t ever think something too far fetched or absurd… this whole Bill-goes-human thing? Could happen… and yeah it makes us laugh but leme tell ya… so did the time travelling thing when I heard about it… and it was real.

Do not … DO NOT! talk to me about that final season of Felicity! We do not speak of such things! Such things are whispered about in quiet dark corners by old crones during the full moon only! :)

Bahaha! I am SO SORRY! You know I kind of blocked it out? I mean, I srsly almost never even remember that fact! But lately, with several television shows doing really strange things… it started coming back to me, lol.

The fact that I sit here and think “yes, this could happen” goes a long way to show the kind of confidence I have in the writers of True Blood these days.

Yep! Look how far we’ve come lol.

"…and Eric and Pam become the first vampire astronauts…"

See THAT I cannot believe. Pam would never suffer helmet hair for days on end! ;)

Yeah… I could see that happening….

Oh come on, we’ve had characters doing things they wouldn’t do in this show before! ;)

Not to THAT degree! Don’t you know that Pam only has three characteristics: Eric, fashion, and hating people. You can’t take anything from her. ;)

Well, I don’t know why I keep doing this but I asked the youtube user a few questions. Well, yes, I was trying to convince myself that the writers can’t do such a lame ending but I don’t know anymore. Like I said yesterday I’ll wait till next week for a confirmation because he explained Violet’s arc in the next episode and he said things that can’t be taken out from previews or interviews

BB did say the ” viewers will be surprised about the way we get there” in reference to Bill and Sookie getting back together. This would fit the bill( pun intended) Having Bill constantly thinking about his lost humanity is like having him bemoaning his vampire state like he did in S1-2. So,he gets it back now. He’s so worthy of having it restored now that he’s repented his sinful ways,after all. The final insult regarding Bill will be ” being a vampire was what made him go to the dark side. ” The ultimate excuse for his behavior will have been made.That is after they show us S1 flashbacks that rewrite history and Bill’s role with the Rat Rays. BB also said ” viewers will realize TB has been a love story all along”. Bill’s journey from human to vampire and back to vampire” or ” There and Back Again- a Vampire Tale ” will be made oh so clear this season. And Sookie? This is not her journey. She’s Bill’s “miracle”,the means by which his humaniteh is regained. I can really see BB coming up with this as a vehicle to restore Bill and present him as a newly minted shiny coin now worthy of Sookie’s love.

I hope you’re right because the atrocious ending of B/S as humans and living hea would be the last nail in the coffin

Yeah, like I said, if the spoilers are true, that’s the only tiny hope I have left. Because yes, this kind of ending is unthinkable.

Here’s the link to the spoiler on Youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ky4Dm355CUI

And here’s the link to the True Blood site:http://www.truetotheend.com/recent/2014/7/21/lost-cause-fangover-the-life-of-the-party#commenting=

If you have an opinion to share regarding the spoilers, I’d let them hear it. It may not change anything, but I think they need to hear it anyway.

The worst part about these spoilers is that in the end it will be all about Bill and his oh so great humanity. It will reduce Sookie to a plot device from the start. The premise of her adapting to the supernatural is long gone anyway but at least she was the main character. That will change with these spoilers. And even if it was all about their ridiculous love story it will then be all about him and how she helped him become the person to love - but she'd be just the supporting character.

Hi Anon,

Yes, this is the sad truth. True Blood won’t be about Sookie as the center of the story.  It all becomes about Bill. Frankly, if I knew that going in, I wouldn’t have bothered. Bill Compton is not a compelling character in any way, and I feel the same slight of hand that I felt with CH and the SVM series.

Sad, sad times if this is, indeed, the direction it goes in. 

Take care!

Not only is he not a compelling character, he is an insidious and atrocious one. And giving him this forced pseudo-redemption — be it in form of actually becoming human again or some other way — is doing nothing to restore any kind of a good will toward the character. 

There is nothing redeeming about him. He can’t undo what he did. He hasn’t even actually acknowledged what he did! He wrote a shitty book where he blamed everyone and everything (and caused more deaths as a result!), except taking responsibility. And for all his “I will never be able to atone for what I’ve done to you, Sookie!” he never actually SAYS what he’s done and genuinely tries to make up for it.

Fuck Bill. Any kind of decent ending for him is an insult to the long-time viewers. It’s condoning rape culture. It’s rewarding all kind of shitty behaviors. 

And yes, let’s shove Sookie to the side even more. Let’s alternately burden her with guilt for shit she has no control over and responsibility for someone else’s man pain. 

And eff the show so hard for the shitty treatment of female characters in general.

There is some amazing reading available at the New Yorker right now. The John Hersey and the Hannah Arendt are cultural literacy level brilliant.
