Wild Speculation Alert: Did Bill Compton KILL Sookie’s parents?

**First of all, this post is dedicated to my wonderful reader Christine (christine runkel) who actually deserves some of the credit for the ideas contained in this theory.**

Sookie’s dream about Claudine (although a little cheesey and over the top) may have been the greatest thing to happen to True Blood’s plot in A LONG TIME.

You thought everything else Bill did was bad (and the list is quite long, including Bill almost killing her/basically killing her in this week’s episode)?


As we all know, Bill has been keeping a secret file on Sookie. We saw papers in that file that not only trace her family tree but also contain obvious surveillance photos  and newspaper clippings from Sookie as a young child!

A lot of us rightly came to the conclusion that Bill has been stalking Sookie or knows someone who has been stalking Sookie since she was a young child!

Now, let us flash forward to Sookie’s fairy dream from episode 3×07 (“Hitting the Ground”)

I think most of us were not too impressed with the cheesy environment created for the dream and the fact that it looked  like a version of one of Maryann’s parties next to a pool (minus the sex, add the sun ).

However, when Sookie revealed that she can’t swim because she is too afraid of the water due to the fact that supposedly both of her parents died by drowning in water, Claudine gave a most interesting reply telepathically:

“Do not fear the water. It wasn’t the water that killed them.”

Understandably, Sookie asks, “What? If it wasn’t the water that killed them, then what did?” And then before Claudine can reply, it gets dark AS BILL COMPTON APPROACHES:

Coincidence? MAYBE NOT.  Claudine even says, “The dark approaches!”  AS BILL COMPTON APPROACHES and they all go running! Coincidence? MAYBE NOT.

“Bill is not like that!” Sookie argues to Claudine and she replies, “I don’t have the time to explain to you why your wrong! You have to come with us Sookie! It’s not safe for you anymore!” Sookie asks, “Why?” Claudine replies, “He [Bill] will steal your light!” Sookie is confused and asks, “What light?!” 

Sookie doesn’t know Claudine well in her estimation and still tries to defend Bill and Claudine parts with her by saying this as a reference to her “light,” “Don’t let him take it from you, promise me!”

OK THEN! A few things are made clear here in this dream:

 Sookie is WRONG about Bill. Bill is NOT GOOD. Bill is darkness and Bill will STEAL HER LIGHT. It is NOT SAFE for Sookie to be around Bill! This obvious guardian of Sookie DOES NOT WANT HER TO BE AROUND BILL!

All of that is the very least of it. Maybe it is NOT a coincidence that Bill approached them while they were talking about what might have really killed her parents! Maybe Bill Compton KILLED SOOKIE’S PARENTS or at least knows the true circumstances surrounding that or was involved in it somehow but won’t tell her for obvious reasons.

Could Bill giving Sookie a smaller family/support system make her easier prey and easier to stalk then and in the future? Is this some sort of vampire conspiracy to be able to walk in the day? It is quite mind-blowing to think of really.

What could be worse for Bill’s character than anything else? Being the killer of her parents (the one thing that has traumatized Sookie to the point where she couldn’t even bring herself to learn how to swim)! Is AB going there? It remains to be seen and would even surprise me… BUT IT JUST MIGHT BE POSSIBLE!

Also, you could use the argument that fairies would feel this way about any vampire! However, why focus in on Bill? Why not just say vampires instead of Bill (it would encompass Bill)? Bill was obviously the singular focus here.

I could be wrong but then again, maybe not.

***************BOOK SPOILERS BELOW. ALERT**********************************



It could be like the books (the bad fairies) but True Blood is different than the SSN and if AB went there is would heartbreaking genius and I would take back every bad thing I ever said!

    Hi TTB, well you’re fast haha 😉 Good work, this actually seems plausable! It could also be that AB/the writers set that dialouge up and Bill coming in at the same time for us to wonder about this without it really being real. If they are not using the books on this one, I would think that the queen could have set this up somehow and Bill being the killer or in the conspiracy to kill the parents. I wouldn’t be surprised by the queen arranging this! Bill today would never have done it but Bill before Sookie would!
    But it’s obvious that the darkness is Bill! And I wonder what affect his blood will have now! We know that if the vampire wanted to they could use their blood to control the person they gave it to! Will she still be the Stepford wife or has the light that she drank from the pool given her the ability to defend the affect of vampire blood?
    I think it’s possible that she will defend it! From the promo it looks like she has her mind in gear, even though she tries to apologize Bill at first… but Book Sookie did that as well without taking him back though.
    What did Claudine mean when she said ‘don’t let him take your light!’, how can he take it? By drinking it then? Did he already take it by draining her?? And she needed more from the pool to replenish her then?
    I’m also wondering if it’s Claudine herself that calls Bill into the dream like it shows in one of the promo, to warn him off! But he then attacks her.

    Well I’m way out of topic now haha 🙂 Love to read your theories TTB, wheather they come true or not, it’s fun how True Blood makes a person think if they dig deep… and they want you to dig deep! I even think that if this theory is not right, the writers wanted people to think it was plauseble!

    • #2 by talktrueblood on August 2, 2010 - 4:03 pm

      Writing these things almost becomes pretty quick when you do it enough haha : )

      I think this shows that Bill atleast knows something if he didn’t carry out the killings himself or as you say, this shows that the writer/director/ or AB wanted people who think about the show to wonder if this was possible. I wouldn’t be surprised that the queen ordered this or arranged the death herself either!
      I was thinking that the light she drank will help her through the conflict of Bill’s blood though it will be a tough fight!

      I figured taking her light could refer to her being drained for the ability to walk in the sun or for Bill overpowering her light with his blood. At the very least, Claudine does not think it is safe for Sookie to be around Bill.

      I just think Sookie doesn’t want anyone to stake Bill, not that they are getting back together or anything when she talks like “he didn’t mean to” or something and it is true that Book Sookie still tried to justify Bill’s actions though but that still doesn’t mean that she tried to get back together with him so your right there.

      I think the writers are trying to make us think that ANYTHING might be possible with Bill at this point and they are succeeding unless your too blinded by Bill to think.

  2. #3 by sunnynala on August 2, 2010 - 1:59 pm

    Could Bill giving Sookie a smaller family/support system make her easier prey

    ABSOLUTELY. This is why he killed Gran. (yes he did, lol) Someone had to raise Sookie after her parents died, but once her usefulness was at an end she had to be gotten rid of. Plus, Gran’s murder traumatized Sookie (shock doctrine, anyone?) to the point that she was more susceptible to The Dark, and went running right into his arms.

    • #4 by talktrueblood on August 2, 2010 - 4:34 pm

      I think you two (you and Renee) might be right about Bill killing Gran now and I was never able to make that leap before!

    • #5 by Christine A on August 2, 2010 - 9:22 pm

      Oh holy crap! That’s right!

      • #6 by Denise on August 3, 2010 - 5:01 am

        Bill did not kill Sookie’s Grandmother, but I can say this, I believe the reason Claudine warns Sookie about Bill is because of Sookie’s heritage, Claudine is Sookie’s cousin and guardian angel, which apparently she’s not doing too good of a job doing. Vampire’s are addicted to fairy blood, they can’t help it, and they will drain a fairy dry before they even know it. Being that Sookie is only part fairy it’s not so bad for her, but remember how the darkness came and all the fairies fled, it’s because night brings out vampires and vampires kill fairies on purpose and on accident, they’re blood is like drinking sugar. Bill showed up at the exact same time because it was nightfall, he made it to Sookie’s side as soon as he was able to, which is right after the sun went down.

      • #7 by talktrueblood on August 3, 2010 - 8:08 am

        Well I understand you theory there but I really think it is not as simple as “night comes.” I guess it could be though!

        I think there was definitely way more to Claudine warning her about Bill than just because of her heritage or that Bill is a vampire.
        No reason why it would suddenly bring up her dead parents who didn’t die like she thought and then POOF, here appears Bill.
        Even if it was just night coming…Bill would have needed a second anyway and if he can walk in the sun, why did he wait?
        those are all valid questions to your argument.
        I see you point but I think there was way more to it than you think.

      • #8 by Denise on August 3, 2010 - 5:03 am

        I think a rival fairie clan killed her parents, I think they caused the flooding that drowned them

      • #9 by talktrueblood on August 3, 2010 - 8:03 am

        I was hesitant to post my theory because of this very book explanation. However, I doubt they are going with the books on this one…they rarely do in most casues and I doubt they will on this one…of course, i could be wrong.

      • #10 by Tiffany on August 3, 2010 - 12:53 pm

        If you look at the hospital scene again.. when Lafayette is standing over Sookie… you will see it is already dark outside. So if it were mere dark that was approaching, Claudine was late in saying it. She didn’t mention the dark until Bill actually walked into the room.

      • #11 by talktrueblood on August 3, 2010 - 3:25 pm

        Exactly Tiffany! thank you

      • #12 by Christine A on August 3, 2010 - 9:47 pm

        That was a great point Tiffany and I’m positive AB sort of subtley adds those bits in hopes that we’ll catch on and find them.

        Claudine knows something is Off about Bill. It’s us that don’t know all of the details. I loved the last episode and can’t wait for Sunday. 🙂

    • #13 by Enjoying on September 24, 2010 - 8:42 pm

      I think Bill kill Grand .
      As we know Bill give Sookie blood frist night he met her .
      Bill was doing some glamoring all over BT
      Bub said he had holes in his brain .
      There is Nothing that I put pass Bill
      I have said from season one Bill is older then he said
      Hes not the real Bill Compton

      • #14 by talktrueblood on September 26, 2010 - 4:50 am

        oh yes. anything is possible with Bill…
        which is why I have mantained my theory that Bill either killed sookie’s parents or at least knew more than he was telling
        after that episode…Bill is capable of anything and it was way too coincidental.

        Bill also knows too much and handles himself far too well for a comparitively young vampire.

  3. #15 by Christine on August 2, 2010 - 3:06 pm

    Great theories TTB! You are much better at voicing theories than I am, lol. Glad I was able to help stir the pot a little!

  4. #17 by the northman files on August 2, 2010 - 3:35 pm

    OMG I can’t tell you how much I LOVE this theory. While watching the show last night and as this all went down the “what if” clicked in my brain…and I was so excited to see that others (i.e., Christine *waves*) thought it as well. At first I couldn’t wrap my brain around the fact it was even possible that AB would put his precious Bill near the evilness that this would entail… Then “the darkness approaches” happened (both in Fae Land and in the hospital) in the form of–huh imagine that–BILL COMPTON.

    BRAVO on this to both of you.

    • #18 by talktrueblood on August 2, 2010 - 4:40 pm

      Christine (and you after your responded to her) certainly had a hand in reassuring me that it could have been Bill and not like the books.

      AB is amazing at misleading an audience if this turns out to be true! I will be his fan for life if this turns out to be true!

  5. #19 by Bobsgran on August 2, 2010 - 3:38 pm

    I do like this TTB. If it comes to be known by the characters that count, it would be awesome. It could be the final nail in Bill’s coffin…har..har.

    • #20 by talktrueblood on August 2, 2010 - 4:49 pm

      LMAO at the Bill’s coffin joke.

      I could not agree more with the possibility of anyone finding out!

  6. #21 by Anna on August 2, 2010 - 4:05 pm

    Have you noticed then too that both times we saw Sookie use her light was after she had spend an extended amount of time away from Bill or didn’t have any of his blood? The first time she used it on Maryann after they got back from Dallas (although she had a bit of Eric’s blood from the explosion) and this time she was running all over Jackson looking for the MIA Bill and when she finally saw him at Alcide’s apartment she fought off Cooter by using her ‘other power.’ Idk, food for thought, but I like your speculation!

    • #22 by talktrueblood on August 4, 2010 - 3:30 am

      I have most definitely noticed that Anna!
      Than you for bringing it up here.

  7. #23 by talktrueblood on August 2, 2010 - 4:55 pm

    I love your speculation about the timing of the light coming from Sookie’s hands! That might be worthy of mentioning in a future Bill Compton post (with you mentioned of course)! It is interesting to not that Eric’s blood might have brought out the light in her while Bill’s suppressed it! It is a distinct possibility!

    and thank you!

  8. #24 by Sarah on August 2, 2010 - 6:43 pm

    The dossier: As a thrilled lover of political thrillers I can tell you that the term “dossier” is often use for a set of informations that is given to contract killers in order to enable them exploring the environment of their future victims. Thus I guess that the Sookie dossier was part of the information the murderer of Sookies´parents were given.
    I don´t think that Bill himself did the deed. As a procurer he would have received the wish and made it possible which means hiring contracts killer, paying them, organising the murder and maybe eventually killing the killers in order to avoid witnesses. Of course this does make his involvement not better but I assume the Beel lovers will claim that he only “followed orders”. I am saving a cynical comment right now…
    Another possibility is that Bill was not directly involved but as procurer had the knowledge about it. This might not be as evil as a direct involvement but certainly it will make a relationship between Sookie and Bill impossible.
    What do you think Hadley said to Eric? Did she told him about the edict or did she have information that was even more explosive?

    • #25 by talktrueblood on August 2, 2010 - 9:14 pm

      I totally agree with you! I admitted that Bill might not have done it himself but her CERTAINLY knows more about it than he is letting on! Keeping any knowledge about the death of her parents from Sookie would be bad enough!

      I am sure she told Eric EVERYTHING! atleast everything she knew…the bigger question is…What did Hadley know? If Hadley knew about the walking in the sun aspect she probably told Eric if she didn’t then no.

  9. #26 by ash on August 2, 2010 - 6:46 pm

    I love what you just said about the possibility of bill suppressing sookie’s light and Eric’s little bit of blood bringing it out. That is just another way of showing that Eric is the /light/ of her life whereas bill is the /darkness/ and if it’s true it could be foreshadowing about their future relationship. Eric never wanted sookie under any false pretenses and he truly cares about her and that’s happened in it’s own way and wasn’t forced so maybe he is her light? This comment is way off target from the post but I wanted to respond to your whole Eric/Bill, Light/Dark comment 🙂 anyways loved the whole theory it seems that it could happen and I would LOVE it!!

    • #27 by Freyja on August 2, 2010 - 7:36 pm

      Ash, I think that Eric is Sookies light! There was such a change in her after he tricked her with his blood… ep. 9 last season just showed the real Sookie! Compassionate, brave, sweet, fun, naive! And when she met him again in ep. 2 and 3 this season she was back to that person.
      When she’s with Bill or searching for Bill she’s controlling, rude, mean, impulsive, irrational … like Bill!

      • #28 by Christine A on August 2, 2010 - 9:27 pm

        I love this and I agree.

      • #29 by talktrueblood on August 3, 2010 - 12:03 am

        I couldn’t agree more which is why she might have been referring to Eric as the good taste you’ve had before!

    • #30 by talktrueblood on August 2, 2010 - 9:17 pm

      I think Bill atleast knows more than he is letting on about her parents death even if he didn’t do it himself. It would still be a horrendous secret to keep!

      Some say Claudine was referring to all vampires but why didn’t she just refer to all vampires? why specifically have a conversation about Bill? Eric is being her light and he brought her powers out shortly after she has his blood.

  10. #31 by Marie Rollande on August 2, 2010 - 7:30 pm

    Another terrific blog I’ve found here! Followed your link from sookieverse, ttb, & thoroughly enjoying reading both posts & comments.

    The cheese setting of Sookie’s Claudine dream (vision ?) was definitely offset by the wealth of info imparted. Bill being identified as The Darkness made me flash back to his “I can smell the sunlight on your skin,” “you are my miracle” scenes. IMO Bill’s obsessive/possessive “love” for Sookie has always been purely in his own self-interest, his repeated “what are you” line really meaning, “what are you so I can figure out how to best use you.” His lover’s mask is starting to shred- Claudine & Tara’s truth telling are shredding it, her near-death draining is a small chink gone from it. But TB Sookie will need much more than that- the lover’s mask would need to be unmistakably snatched from Bill right in front of her before she’d see the true Bill. Did Bill have a hand in murdering Sookie’s parents, or perhaps was he part of some vampire plot to kill them? Can TB go there, since AB loves Bill+Sookie so much? Have to stay tuned, I guess. Bookie got the message of Bill’s duplicity right away; for TB Sook it will take so much more, if it happens at all.

    • #32 by talktrueblood on August 2, 2010 - 9:27 pm

      WELCOME Marie and thank you!

      Bill does not care about Sookie for who she is. Bill cares about Sookie because of the self-fufillment/ self-satisfaction that she provides him. Eric likes Sookie because of who she is (her humor, her loyalty, her heart). Of course Eric likes Sookie’s beauty but it isn’t about what she provides to him but rather who they give eachother!

      I think that Bill knows more about Sookie and her history and the truth behind the death of her parents than he is lettting on at the very least.
      I think Sookie will atleast have the sense to remain broken up with him until she finds out anyway. Bill will try to help but will put her in a worse position than before. At that point, it is all over for Bill I do believe.

      • #33 by Osterby on August 3, 2010 - 2:14 am

        I am a long time lurker here and absolutely love your blog.
        I have thought for a while that Bill has revisited Bon Temps many time in the past 170 years. The fact that he knew of Sookie’s Grandfather’s abilities and had Earl Stackhouse circled on the family tree in the dossier points me there.
        I have also wondered if Bill’s resume included his knowledge of Sookie’s family secret (tribute) when he presented himself at QSA’s Court. It would have most certainly made a favorable impression and would have made him appear as a ‘shoe in’ for the position of procurer.
        I agree that Eric is Sookie’s Light, but I also believe that Sookie is Eric’s Light. The literal lighting of Sookie and Eric when they are together point me there.
        As for if AB will go there with Bill killing Sookie’s parents, my guess is yes. It is great drama to see how far the mighty may fall.

      • #34 by talktrueblood on August 3, 2010 - 3:31 am

        Thank you for coming by Osterby! I have definitely seen you around!

        I think your right about why Bill knows about Earl OR Bill glamoured the information out of Gran.
        I think your completley right about Bill’s “resume” and I wonder if Bill was the one that procured Hadley (maybe for the queen as part of his resume).

        Sookie is definitely Eric’s light as well because they bright out the best in eachother (very nice observation about the lighting).
        If AB does go there I will definitely be his biggest fan for life. haha.

      • #35 by Osterby on August 3, 2010 - 11:30 pm

        Thanks for the warm welcome. I am sure Bill we to Court with his tribute to QSA….~I have brought you information about a family from upstate. Every few generations this family produces a telepath. Here is my research. Surely Your Magisty would be interested…and by the way I’m looking for employment…~ (You have to read it with a Bill’s smarmey southern accent). I most certainly think Bill procured Hadley for QSA. Sookie was the next step in his plan.

      • #36 by talktrueblood on August 4, 2010 - 3:36 am

        Oh I love all of my readers. I try to respond to everyone that takes the time to comment.
        I love your comments in general everywhere I have seen them so i was happy you came by.

        Forget everything else, if Sookie finds out Bill “procured” her cousin for another vampire and that is why she hasn’t heard from Hadley in such a long time and that Bill has been speaking to her and not passing on Hadley’s messages, that is the end for Bill.

  11. #38 by Christine on August 2, 2010 - 9:19 pm

    Oh god, I actually was eating at warp speed reading this – I don’t think I tasted my food.

    *Why was Claudine compelled to leave before “The Darkness” got there? Apparently Bill is bad for everyone. Did Sookie’s blood enable Bill to exhist in the Fae world too?

    *Is AB being too obvious and therefore we’re going to have the rug pulled out from underneath us at the season finale in a bad way?

    *Is JAOB here? I hope. 😉

    *Was Sookie’s screaming upon waking truly her memory of being murdered by Bill or was it the effect of so much of his blood in her. (I hated that part).

    If he is the one who killed Sookie’s parents I will severe any lingering feelings of sympathy that I still have for him.

    • #39 by talktrueblood on August 2, 2010 - 11:58 pm

      Thank you Christine for coming by!

      1. Well I think Claudine knows that Bill is dangerous so she feels she can protect Sookie in the fae world. She didn’t actually leave, leave until Bill “the darkness” showed up.

      2. I wonder about that myself but I don’t think that Claudine is anything but a truth teller and since we have been waiting 3 seasons, now, I think it was time for these revelations to come. Enough plots can come from her and Bill breaking up and more interesting ones than Bill actually not being evil after this and not everything has been revealed yet. Hadley told Eric the whole story I am guessing and it must be important.

      3. I bet JAOH will show up at some point.

      4. I think it was the immediate effect of Claudine’s dream, the truth inside her and a PTSD thing too.

      5. I couldn’t agree more!

      • #40 by Christine on August 3, 2010 - 12:59 am

        Also, remember that atleast in the books, the Fae are not physically able to tell a lie. They can maneuver around a question very well due to that fact! 😉

        That is such a wonderful point Christine! thank you for bringing it up!
        I think it would have been hard for Claudine to explain everything to Sookie in such a short time too and it would have been too much for Sookie to handle at once.

    Did you notice that Claudine said to Sookie, when Sookie said that the light/water was the best thing she ever tasted, ‘you’ve had it before’…. and then had a surprised look on her face, like Sookie should have remembered last time.

      • #52 by Christine A on August 3, 2010 - 1:39 am

        I watched the whole thing again without being on edge, and saw more today than I did yesterday.

        In the hospital the clerk is telling Jason he has to make a decision about Sookie because he is the “next of kin”….Jason HESITATES, looks over at Sookie and says, “Maybe”.

        Maybe he’s next of kin? What does Jason know that we don’t know.

      • #53 by talktrueblood on August 3, 2010 - 1:44 am

        ummm. that is a little odd but I think it was more about Sookie not having a blood type and Jason’s general shock about everything that was going on.

        I am about to write an analysis of the Claudine dream that will up tomorrow morning or so.

      • #54 by Christine A on August 3, 2010 - 2:06 am

        Watch that part again if you can, and pay close attention. It’s one of those “crossroads” we’re meant not to miss, I believe.

        He also said sookie wasn’t born in a hospital – listen to the eerie high key piano music that starts… 😉

      • #55 by talktrueblood on August 3, 2010 - 2:15 am

        I am re-watching tonight as I write my article on the Claudine dream and I will stop and look at that scene.

        Well she said her grandfather was like her so that is why I was skeptical that her parents might not be her actual parents or she might not be related to Jason (atleast fully).

    Love this theory! It would be the best development if Bill turned out to be the one who killed her parents. Either way he has betrayed her on so many levels but this would be the final nail in the coffin of Sookie and Bill’s vomit inducing relationship.

    • #57 by talktrueblood on August 2, 2010 - 11:50 pm

      I totally agree. Even if Bill only knows about it or was involved indirectly, that is still a horrendous secret to keep from Sookie.

    very nice

    Love it ,you are always brilliant .
    Bill is so cagey I do think that he is in cahoots with the AVL .
    Sookie we hope will not cooperate with his plans for her now
    What she drinked I hope will help difuse his blood.
    Eric blood was the light , Bills is the dark
    We can only hope to see how dark Bill is .
    As you AP blog I feel hes Not the real Bill Compton
    That he is much older then what has been showed
    I feel he has played the queen as he did Russell
    You know he kill grand and will be surprise at him killing her parents
    or had some thing to do with it .
    You would not send a young vamp as Bill to get a fae ,one whos blood you could walk in the day time .You would send one older the best at glamor ,when she could not be was when he become the man Sookie would wanted.
    The Webster’s dictionary does not have enough words in it to say how
    evil the things hes has done .

    • #60 by talktrueblood on August 7, 2010 - 2:34 am

      Thank you!

      “He is way too square…” as Talbot would say haha
      I doubt there is enough time in 10 seasons to show just how evil Bill can be.
      There is something suspicious about Bill only being 135-145 and having so much confidence.
      Bill can be quite smooth despite his reckless exterior and I don’t mean that in a good way of course haha
      Sending a young vampire on such an important mission would seem rather odd.

      • #61 by Enjoying on August 7, 2010 - 4:13 am

        Bill is not square that was just an imagine that he show to Talbot .Bill was doing some games with Talbot and Russell .
        Bill the immaculate deceit we will see him act as the martry even more so ,but only when will get back to Sookie .
        As we both know AB said interviews that it is writen for two groups of fans . Where not talking Bill and Eric , but all meaning
        that the shows in it .The undercurrent ever show has ,most do not want to dig to see what anwer could be .They just take it as a whole and are missing over half of the show .It one big puzzal
        and it has be analysis .

      • #62 by talktrueblood on August 7, 2010 - 3:26 pm

        haha. I also only think he is square in his buisness persona (which helps his career and his love life apparently though we know there are ulterior motives when it comes to his love life too).

        What AB said was so true. I definitely would not be interested in writing about a show that was light fluff or intellectually obvious. The puzzle is about half the fun!

    The fairies also said you don’t want to met a vampire to each other when one said I have never met a vampire, they don’t like any vamps not just Bill. And I don’t think Bill did kill her parents because why would the queen care so little about Bill (she said let him rot when he went missing) and Eric wants to be with sookie so he would find anything to make her and bill split up He is smart so i think if it were true he would figure it out.

    PS Bill is not so bad in my opinion with any vamp you would get hurt ex. maryann attacked sookie because she wanted to send a message to Eric. Bill would do anything for sookie 🙂

    • #64 by Christine A on August 7, 2010 - 2:07 pm


      That was interesting – but that last comment about Bill doing anything for Sookie? I think we’ll have to keep watching. Because if the speculation is accurate, Sookie is simply an “Item” that Bill was told to procure. If he loses her for any reason his ass is on the line. So what looks like Bill’s undying love for Sookie is actually Bill covering his own ass to save himself. I’m not saying he doesn’t have love for her, but I am saying he loves himself more. To Bill, Bill is his #1 and Sookie is valuable property that someone wants. Bill has been “hunting” Sookie since she was a child. Doesn’t that sound odd to you? What if some man was found to have been watching and accumulating information on your daughter since she was a child? Would you worry? You should. I would. “The Darkness approaches”.

      • #65 by talktrueblood on August 7, 2010 - 4:22 pm

        Right on Christine. Bill is not protecting Sookie unselfishly.

        Plus, I have to say the dream was specifically about Bill because it was all about Sookie and her trust in him and Bill stealing Sookie’s light. She said “him” not “them.” That seems pretty straightforward to me, especially when

        One fairy made an offhanded remark about vampires…but of couse FULL BLOODED fairies should be afraid of vampires and I doubt Sookie is a full blooded fairy or the traits wouldn’t have skipped a generation and she would be living in the fae , not Bon Temps, and she wouldn’t have a brother that is mostly human either.

  17. #66 by anette on September 23, 2010 - 11:24 pm

    sorry, it won’t be a short one pot, but I must to say:

    About Jason, I’m wonder… Maryanne told sookie, that she is feeding by human energy, and that Sookie is definitely not human, because she couldn’t “turned” her in one of this black-eye zombie. But she easily turned Jason! He lost memory like others – Sookie haven’t!
    In books Sookies granny had an affair with a Fea because she couldn’t have children with her hubby. Maybe here in TB will be differently? Maybe her mother had an affair? and only Sookie is a child of Fairy and Human? That’s why she wasn’t born in hospital? (maybe when fae is born there is something different in comparison with regular born? – for example light or maybe fairies come to welcome one of their own kind?). Jason is a guy, human, he has human energy, so Maryanne had w power over him. Well, I’m not sure if we could trust granny when she told, that grandpa was similar to Sookie, as he also “knew things”, because I had feelings, that she told it just for Sookie’ calm of mind, as an example that this gif could be good thing, not blasphemy, so she give a story about grandpa saving his brother, but: it was time when she try to convinced Sookie to use a telepathy to save Jason, and even Sookie noticed that this story was full of gaps. So maybe Sookie to Jason is only half-sister?
    And maybe her parents died because of mixing blood? Some kind of racist fairy politic?

    Bill as a killer of Sookie’s parents, interesting, but I think he isn’t. But maybe before there was some kind of vampire conspiracy around that family…
    Bill still has a lot of to hide. I was sorry for Hadley, when he told her not to contact with Sookie and granny (who wasn’t even alive at that point, but he didn’t tell her this!), so there must be a lot of thing that she knows and he don’t want to sookie get know. Hope Hadley told all to Eric, hope it’s more that “he goes there to procure Sookie for QSA”, Eric said that he wasn’t expect this… who knows what he heard?
    I still can’t say for sure if Bill is so stupid, or he has some hidden advantages over vampires, even a old as Eric or Russell. His behave is full of arrogance and cockiness, bu why? He is a young vampire, without strong position, not a sheriff, or king, just Bill procurer, it’s not enough to play games with big boys… So I’m thinking, he hide something:
    – maybe he work for authorities? Nan F. also is younger than Eric, but behave as a bitch just because “she is in tv” and because authorities send her. That would explain also why his punishment for killing Long Shadow was rather small: turn Jessica is not as harm as spend 5 years in coffin until you loose you mind…
    – maybe he is connected with some other power, like… witches?
    – maybe in fact he is stronger than 170 years old vampire should be because of Sookie’s blood? He drunk a lot of her blood!
    – maybe he was something more than human before he was turned?
    I had also suspicion that Bill is more addicted to Sookie’s blood than we noticed, maybe because it gives him something more than only : delicious taste and feel so good. Maybe he is using power of her blood, not as a sun screen, but who knows? Russell imagine that he could resurrected Talbot with Sookie’s blood, so maybe Bill has his own reason? It jumps on me when I noticed that even nearly dead Eric wasn’t so greedy as Bill. And he haven’t got this impulses to drink her blood before she offered her wrist to him. Even in Sookie’s dream or his dream about her we haven’t seen him feeding on her (in second dream after Godric death she voluntary offered him her neck as a consolation, i think)… As we see in their dreams, their feelings to each other are very romantic, carrying, trustful and… bloodless 😉 But Bill was always put a sex with a blood.

    Claudine definitely doesn’t trust Bill, and you know what: she had a reason! When he went to fairy land after almost draining Sookie he attacked her, she had to protect her self against his willing to bite her! It was so rude! And yes, I agree that she didn’t mention other vamps, like Eric or Pam, even she knew that Sookie has contact with tem to. No, she warned her only about Bill!

    • #67 by talktrueblood on September 24, 2010 - 8:06 pm

      I think Jason got less fairy genes than Sookie. It’s simply a matter of random genetics.
      However, you could be correct regarding Sookie’s mother either being raped or having an affair on TB.
      I just wonder how they knew to deliver Sookie at home.
      I like your theory.

      Bill could still be the killer (I won’t rule anything out). I think he atleast knows more than he is telling
      even if he is not the actual killer.
      I think Eric knew about Bill in some ways (he did mention Bill giving her blood early on in episode 2×11).
      However, he didn’t know why they wanted her. He didn’t know it was because she was a fairy.
      Maybe he assumed it was because of her telepathy, which he himself had used.

      I assumed that Bill was possibly working with the authorities.
      I like the idea he might be connected to the witches. Some think there was a spell on Sookie’s dress and/or
      Sookie’s ring during the proposal.
      I like those ideas in general about Bill I have seen on other blogs…anything is possible.

      So true about Bill in the blood ( i don’t think he gets aroused without the prospect of blood or violence).

      That is why I was so struck by this possibility. The dream was centered around her not trusting Bill and he came to see her as soon as
      Claudine said, “The darkness approaches!”…RIGHT after they spoke of why her parents really died.

  18. #68 by anette on September 24, 2010 - 10:17 pm

    About Sookie deliver by her mom: they could know that they shouldn’t go to hospital if she had romance (not rape – because I think in that situation she wouldn’t know what to do) and her lover told her what to expect… or maybe pregnancy from the beginning was different, strange in some way, and she didn’t have “symptoms” that it is so close, so she just didn’t get ready and go to hospital on time… Jason said it was very very quick.

    I think Eric was very curious why they are so stubborn about taking Sookie, maybe also because he, by him self, was looking for an explanation why he is so interested in her, he still don’t want to accept fact that he is in love with her, she feels something in her is strange, so he just want to know what it is.

    There must be some explanation of Bill’s arogance… Hope we get known in 4 season…

    • #69 by talktrueblood on September 26, 2010 - 4:55 am

      maybe they couldn’t have more children and they wanted more and set it up but later felt the consequences with Sookie’s telepathy.
      I like your ideas concerning the quick delivery and the idea she probably had a lover (though I was thinking that might be the case as well).

      I think Eric accepted the fact that he loved her when he admitted his last wish was to kiss her (in a way).

      I hope we get that explanation to or I will be very disappointed with Bill as a character next season.

  19. #70 by Enjoying on September 27, 2010 - 11:00 pm

    The Queen when she told Eric to let Bill rot was just a part to set Eric up .
    That didn”t work so she had Vamp blood put in the bar to set him up with .
    As a Sheiff of area 5 ,if he did not look for Bill he would have to anwer for that .

    • #71 by talktrueblood on September 27, 2010 - 11:45 pm

      I had thought about that but that is a very nice perspective.

      I agree that she took extreme measures and she didn’t care about what happened to Eric either so she was telling him to do anything stupid.

  20. #72 by Anna Mauldin on September 30, 2010 - 5:45 pm

    I would not be surprised if bill killed Sookies parents.He paid the Rattrays to beat Sookie
    up so he could heal her and drink her blood.I the 4 book and I want to see Jason be a panther.

    • #73 by talktrueblood on September 30, 2010 - 10:01 pm

      Anything concerning Bill is possible at this point! : )

      I just hope whatever happens to Jason it will be more interesting than it was this season.

  21. #74 by sophie on November 15, 2010 - 6:05 am

    um, in the end, bill is killing everyone who has tasted sookies blood because she is like a drug to all vampires, so this means that they might not be able to stop drinking her once they have tried her. so bill is killing everyone who has tasted her so that she is safe, he is even sacrificing not seeing her again just to make her happy, and to the comment way up there about bill not coming to heal sookie in the hostipital at day time is because he can only stay in light for like 10 minutes before he starts burning.
    bill was keeping the file on her so he could find out what she was, he was tracing who had also had a telepathic mind so he could try and find out what she was, only the queen knew what she was because of hadly, and the queen is so old and had delt with fairies before. she sent a young vampire like bill so get her because he wouldn’t had learnt about fairies because he is young and theyy are old. if he had killed adele stackhouse then why had he left all the blood, he wouldn’t had been able to do that and would have drank all the blood there.
    while he was ‘fetching’ sookie for the queen, he was taking his time so he didn’t have to hand her in, he also brought the queen to his house by false pretences so he could kill the queen to protect sookie.

  22. #75 by AddictedtoV on May 6, 2011 - 3:11 am

    The only hole I see in your theory (while I agree with most of it) is that Bill didn’t seem to know that Sookie was a faerie. When he was dumped out of the van by Tara he looked at his hands and noticed he wasn’t dieing (an effect of fae blood on vampires). I believe Bill was sent to Bon Temps to “procure” Sookie for SophieAnn who was told about her faerie heritage from Hadley. As far as Bill killing Sookie’s parents, if he killed them he would have drank their blood (stealing their light) thus he would have known that they were faeries and that Sookie was one as well. I think Bill will probably end up trying to kill Sookie for her blood. He lost control because he drank her blood. I think he knows this and he is trying to kill everyone that has fed on her blood which will ultimately result in self sacrifice or the vicious faeries will kill Bill. I haven’t read the books so I will just have to see how this plays out.

    • #76 by Katya on May 6, 2011 - 9:28 am

      Well this actually wasn’t a plot line in the books….(in regards to Sookie’s blood) so I have no idea how this is going to play out.

      I think it still would have been shocking for a vampire to see himself in the sun not burning even if he had some idea that that may happen. Also, I think Bill may have been more concerned with Sookie than fascinated that he wasn’t burning if he expected it. Anyway, at the end he seemed calm, cool, and collected and simply said “damn” when Tara made off with Sookie.

      The death of her parents could have been arranged…Bill himself may have not done it but may have arranged it or known about it without telling her. (he may also just know the real reason and not be telling her, which is still another lie, albeit not as bad as killing her parents himself). If Bill drank her parents, they may not necessarily have the same properties Sookie had (her brother Jason evidently does not either).

    Bill IMO knew that Sookie was a Fae/ ( half Fae).. he had the File on her family & i think in s4 in one of the flashback clips Bill & Nan ( 80’s flashback) run into a Fae?? But anyway, it looks like Bill knew more about Sookie & her Faeness then us bookies even thought.. & this is AB changing up Bill’s character from the books vs. the show.. just like the Rattray beating..

    • #79 by Kat on July 5, 2011 - 12:13 am

      Yes, there was no doubt that Bill knew!

      Yes, I think Bill is ten times more sinister on True Blood.

      Eell Bill seemed very knowledgeable about fairies when Sookie asked him about it. Bill may have actually approached QSA about nabbing a fairy (knowing it was her weakness).
