“I use you, you use me” Episode 3×10 Analysis/Recap/ PREDICTIONS

Usually I just do a general theme for my recaps but I am going into a full-blown analysis of the theme presented and what is means for this season AND THE NEXT, so this is long it is quite a bit more in-depth than my usual recap:

Bill uses Sookie in an attempt to regain his humanity and to further his career but tries to pretend otherwise and Sookie uses Bill to gain “peace and quiet” as well as protection and excitement in her mind but has tried to convince herself it was love at first sight:

 

Does Bill omit the truth because he is an imposter: not an innocent vampire there purely for Sookie‘s love or is he that innocent vampire? Time will tell but the evidence points to: NO he is not that innocent vampire! Why does he tell her part of the truth? That is the mystery. Maybe because QSA didn’t tell him the truth and he doesn’t know that specifically matters OR maybe he ready to betray QSA for Sookie so he can hide the truth, which will of course only cause more problems? Will Sookie realize the true basis of their relationship?

Eric uses Yvetta for sex and Yvetta uses Eric for sex and money:

Considering that Eric is not known to be a total liar (though he is a master at avoiding the issue), I do no think he outright lied to Yvetta about her position with him. I think she simply assumed. I think this illustrates what most women expect from Eric: his money ( a book nod and something he often mentions to Sookie in them because he expects her to want that).  He loves Sookie for various reasons but partly because she is not materialistic and has feelings for him that go beyond sex and money, though she doesn’t admit it. Though Sookie uses him, she uses him for something different and THIS SURPRISES ERIC. This confrontation with Yvetta could be a set up for revenge against Eric or the consequences of vengeance as well. Eric seeks vengeance this season and next season, others such as Yvetta seek their vengeance against Eric. (Karma)-what goes around comes around- might be a theme next season to counter the selfishness and darkness coming from all the characters this season! That is my prediction for next season’s theme.

Calvin uses Crystal to breed more werepanthers Hotshot citizens:

Eric wishes to use Bill’s lies to win Sookie’s favor. Bill wishes to use Sookie’s distrust of Eric to his favor:

These two are at a stalemate until Sookie begins to trust Eric one day AND/or distrust Bill openly or Bill finally takes over because Sookie loses all feeling for Eric (don’t see the last thing happening, atleast in the long run)!

Arlene uses the FOTS agenda to justify her hatred of vampires; Jessica uses Arlene’s hatred to justify her attack on her; Tommy uses Jessica’s dark side to justify her need to be with him:

Arlene’s hatred causes a chain reaction: Jessica attacks her for it and Tommy nurtures that dark side of Jessica and uses it to justify a relationship with her and encourages the negative behavior which will inevitably cause more problems for Jessica and everyone (much bigger chain reactions will be caused by hatred/retaliation in the future, setting up the Karma theme for next season).

Summer attempts to use her sexuality to change Hoyt’s mind (she is attempting to use Hoyt so that he will father her babies, Hoyt used Summer as a rebound from Jessica):

Using your sexuality alone for using someone almost never works (look at Yvetta). Rebounds only hurt people more, including yourself (Eric used Yvetta to combat his feelings for Sookie too, so it was a rebound in a way).

Franklin used Tara to combat his “loneliness,” while Bill used Tara as an example to put a front of loyalty up for Russell (by refusing to help her), besides the fact that he really cares for nobody but Sookie:

Tara survived being used BUT ATLEAST FRANKLIN was up front about it. Bill can’t even give that courtesy.

 Bill uses Jason to look after Sookie for him keep Sookie isolated for him and protect her:

Holly uses Sam to push her religion:

Using someone as an example to push your religion is never appreciated.

Arlene uses Terry as a father figure and to feel better about her own life; Terry uses Arlene to find a purpose in his life and find “normalcy.”

Neither of the ways of “using” someone is necessarily bad if they benefit both parties (alluding to Sookie and Eric’s mutal using of eachother despite their real feelings for eachother, relationships can get complex). However, Arlene could ruin it with an underhanded move (omitting things) and going behind his back (sound familiar?)

Jesus uses Laffayette’s power and Laffayette’s V to enhance his own power; Laffayette’s intentions are purely for love (but he overlooks thing LIKE SOOKIE because he uses Jesus to complete his life):

 The power generated from this partnership will have consequences for everyone and possibly attract Hallow because of the energy created from the ritual/power of it all (in much the same way that Maryann was drawn to Bon Temps). I think that Jesus might not be Hallow now, but that Jesus and Laffy will be the cause of Hallow’s arrival and this duo may be drawn into Hallow and the possibly V worship. I am thinking that Yvetta might ultimately sell out Eric out to Hallow for cash payment as well (karma and vengeance)  POSSIBLY, Laffy will see following Hallow as a way out from underneath Eric and Jesus will see Hallow as a way of enhancing power and be attracted to Hallow for the ultimate healing power: animating the dead (a trait that Hallow is supposed to possess).

Sookie covers up her own feelings for Eric by using Eric’s feelings for her own benefit:

 

However, using a 1000 yr old viking is not advisable and is cold because Eric loves you.

Eric ends up coming up with a plan Sookie to save everyone by using Sookie partly because Pam convinces him too and partly because he justifies it in his mind because Sookie is using him too, in reality (neither of which are good excuses though extreme action was needed):

The fact that Both Eric and Sookie actually harbor passionate feelings for one another (and Eric actually loves her imo), adds fuel to the fire in this equation. Both Sookie and Eric will experience disastrous consequences  if they DO NOT LEARN to trust one another and give into their passion for one another. This was just one of those consequences for them both. This season and the next, Sookie will make up for her “use of Eric ” by playing a role in Russell’s downfall and Eric will make up for his “use of Sookie,” this season by ultimately trying his best to get rid of her Russell problem (which is her biggest problem yet) or actually doing so. Sookie will continue to make-up for things next season by caring for Eric in his time of need. Eric might continue to make up for that next season by being her companion in her post-break up time of need (maybe even after Alcide too) and continuing to protect her. This redemption of their transgressions toward one another (and the hurt feelings that resulted), will lay the ground work for Sookie and Eric to gradually accept their love/passion for one another and have hot, steamy sex next season and hopefully later on, though it may be hard. THE BEAUTY OF THE ERIC AND SOOKIE relationship is it’s hearbreakingly painful for them to resist though it is sometimes necessary to do so and it exposes every weakness and dark corner of these two (that is why they resist it) while simultaneously exposing the strength and the light in these two (which is why they love each other or will love each other and won’t be able to fight it).  It brings out every human emotion forth and that is why it is so very interesting to watch…not because Eric is hot (though that certainly helps) and not because Eric is a better character than Bill (though that helps too).

Tara uses her love for Jason to forget about her trauma; Jason uses Tara’s feelings to wiggle his way out of the secret about Eggs:

Needless to say, neither plan works or will work and will backfire.

Jessica uses her blood to save Hoyt but also tie him to her (sound familiar?); Hoyt uses Jessica’s blood to save himself against his better judgement (sound familiar?) I guess Hoyt might have died otherwise but I think he could have been saved by applying some pressure and a quick hospital visit accelerated by her vampire speed:

I smell disaster Jessica dreams for Hoyt because their relationship is already doomed but they will be forever tied to their cute but doomed relationship (sound familiar? ) I swear this isn’t going to end well for either of them (as Hoyt embraces his dark side to be with Jessica)! This will intensify the disaster already waiting at the end of their relationship. Atleast Jessica and Hoyt’s feelings had time to simmer before the blood exchange (*wink wink*). The only way this could be positive is to show how things would have played out for B/S if Bill had only been honest.

Sam used his shifting abilities to build his false life; Sam’s ex-gf used him; Sam used his ex-gf’s “accidental” murder to cover his tracks by opportunistically killing the witness; Sam uses these experiences to justify his rage (though he ignores that fact):

Sam will experience karma for these actions and it will drive him insane.

Crystal uses Jason to escape hotshot and for a place to stay (though she at least exposes the truth to him, which is more than we can say for SOME people):

Russell uses a prostitute to fill Talbot’s void and take his insanity/guilt out on someone:

All I got to say once again is KARMA, KARMA, KARMA!

Last Week we discovered that absolutely “Everything is Broken (3×09),” How is this happening?“I smell a rat (3×10),”  but not just one, multiple ones and they are EVERYWHERE!

Next week: “Fresh Blood (3×11)” will begin to be spilled.

    This is very nice work- great job on nailing down a main theme through general analysis of the ep. Who in TBville can’t smell rat carcasses mouldering behind the walls right now, given the info exposed in this go ’round?

    Just home from work (at this hr.!) but can I just say before toddling off, I read this blog daily for the fine posts & comments re: TB/SVM. Hope to have more to say later when have slept on it all.

    • #2 by talktrueblood on August 24, 2010 - 1:12 pm

      The info is at the brink of exploding in everyone’s episode. True Blood certainly likes to build things up for everyone and it’s bound to be a very exciting explosion in the last two episodes.

      Ohk, I will be looking out for another comment. thank you : )

  2. #3 by dwizardz on August 24, 2010 - 8:49 am

    I like watching true blood seasons and reading your blog

  3. #5 by Bobsgran on August 24, 2010 - 10:55 am

    Great incite TTB. I have a feeling that Yvetta will be a catalyst for what may happen to Eric in S4, if he does indeed have a spell put on him. The old saying, beware the women scorned could certainly apply. He was brutal in his assessment of her “charms”.
    I can see karma coming back at him for that. And Terry, he tries so hard to be normal.
    Whatever he suffered in defence of his country, he tries very hard not to let it dominate his life. Jason, Jason, Jason. Simple as a box of rocks but a heart as big as the outdoors. He told the truth to Tara and that counts for a lot. He makes me think of a pinball in one of those old machines, bouncing from crisis to crisis. I’m afraid for Sam. He has been wound as tightly as a cheap watch, despite his attempts to lead a peaceful life. Cold blooded murder will drive him off a mental cliff eventually because he does have a conscience. As you said KARMA, KARMA, KARMA.

    • #6 by talktrueblood on August 24, 2010 - 1:37 pm

      He was quite brutal but I think Eric speaks the truth, unfortunately for Yvetta, who expected Eric to completely provide for her once they were having sex (probably like all the other women that Eric has been, and possibly men though I think Eric definitely prefers women, within in the past 1000 years. Eric was probably content with the unattached “pet-companion” until he fell for Sookie.
      Jason did tell Tara the truth, but only when he realized she loves him (yet, it still does count for something).
      I agree about Sam and his conscience completely, my point exactly.
      KARMA is coming for everyone that allowed their darkness to overtake them this season or re-discovered it.

    youre doing a wonderfull job, over the last two days i have been reading an awefull lot of your blog, and the past two days for me has not been that great, but every little comment of yours have made me grine.
    though i do believe youre a little obsessed (nothing wrong with that, so am i) i just cant not read your posts.
    i love the way you portarais bill, though i dont think hes that evil mastermind you makes him up to. hes just bad for her, and borring.

    one thing we ought to thank bill for, is introdusing Sookie to Eric, though it was Sooks own ‘fault’.

    am i the only one who sees two different bills? the book bill and the series bill.. i think the two are oh so different, meaby even alan ‘asshat*’ ball saw the dullness and the doomedness?
    * asshat= youre an ass, but youre trying to hide it: disguise it with a hat= ass with hat

  5. #8 by Missy on August 24, 2010 - 4:50 pm

    I saw your post on facebook about the most definate misunderstanding between Sookie and Eric and it’s so tragic 😥

    This is what I wrote on another post:

    About the Eric/Sookie/Bill talk at Jasons house; when Sookie said ‘now that I know what you want with me you will never get it’, she thinks Eric only wants her delicious blood, and Eric thinks she was talking about the day walking and that Bill has told her the truth. That explains Eric’s mood in his office and his line ‘don’t pretend you care about me’.

    Damn Bill for once again f*cking everything up!!! When Eric went to Sookie, he wanted her help, but was shot down in misunderstanding! Now he has decided that he can’t put Pam in danger for a girl that doesn’t care at all for him, so he decides to use her. Even though he will do everything he can to keep her safe while doing it.

    Only… Sookie does care!! She told herself that in her dream. She wasn’t only at Fangtasia to get information about Bill, she was afraid for Eric. You could see that in her look when she asked if he was saying goodbye to her. 😥

    All because of Bills lies! Doesn’t he know that his lies and hidden information is what always gets her in trouble?

    • #9 by talktrueblood on August 24, 2010 - 10:49 pm

      I seriously think I am going to cry, having it all laid out like that for me.
      I really hope that Sookie and Eric find out the truth!
      The tragedy of it all unnerves me…seriously..
      Bill doesn’t get her in trouble because he is a vampire, Bill gets her in trouble because he lies and is unable to protect her without putting everyone at risk….including the very object of supposed affection he attempts to protect, Sookie.
      The tragedy of Eric’s story will sadden and fascinate me forever I think.

      : (

      • #10 by Missy on August 24, 2010 - 11:24 pm

        Yes it’s tragic and that makes the love story also more interesting.
        Remember the first dream when Eric talked about Sookie would do everything for her loved ones, even him. Now he thinks that she would never help him, which is so wrong! This is Sookie we are talking about!! She would help, most definitely, because she cares and it would also benefit her.
        Eric now probably thinks it’s futile to get Sookie to co-work on bringing down Russell, there is just no time for talking and persuation. So Eric for the sake of himself, Pam, Sookie, vampire/human relation, jails Sookie to use her in his plot to take down Russell. It was never going to be easy and with no co-operation they are doomed.

  6. #11 by Sarah on August 24, 2010 - 4:52 pm

    Love the way you showed us the theme of this episode!
    To me the whole Eric storyline is deeply tragic due to the fact that he is torn between his different loyalities. His first and as I would argue also strongest is his paternal love for his child Pam that is strengthened by their over 100 years old relationship . This loyality comprises also Godric and the things he taught Eric. I would argue that Pam deserves his loyality more than Sookie because she actually tries to support Eric and trusts and loves him with her whole being.
    At the moment he shows more patience with Sookie than I can understand. Capturing her is his personal ultima ratio and he does not do it to save himself which would be selfish but to salvage Pam and Sookie. Eric reminds me of the suicidal Godric, a man without much hope left. It is only due to Pam´s fierce love that he finds the strength again to make a plan that presumably could reconcile his contradicting loyalities for Pam, Sookie and his murdered family.
    While Pam understandably is shocked and hurt by his loss of hope and activity Sookie is behind redemption due to her dumbness and selfishness. Honestly, do she and Bill really think that Jason´s house is a save place? At least Bill needs to know how dangerous the situation is and that their only option is to cooperate with Eric and kill Russel together. The fact that Eric killed Talbot did not deteriorate the situation for Bill and Sookie (as Bill acussed Eric) on the contrary it saved Bill from his final death and Sookie from torture and slavery.
    Pam and to a certain extent Eric who is blinded by his feelings for Sookie have accepted that they can´t kill Russel on their own. They need Sookie and her blood. Unfortunately Sookie is unable to judge the situation like an adult and assumes that Eric only will (ab)use her without acknowledging that her own situation is more than messy if Russel stays alive and belligerent. Eric tried to find help in a peaceful way but he failed due to Sookie´s dumbness/naivety and Bill´s complete ignorance.
    I hated every single minute of Eric throwing Sookie into prison. It looked humilating and was certainly degrading for Sookie. But I have to admit that if I was in the same situation I would have done exactly the same as Eric. There is no solution for everyone (!!) without Sookie´s help. Eric might be ready to lose his unlife but he won´t allow Sookie and Bill to risk their own lifes plus Pam´s and maybe even Jason´s and Crystal´s only because of their ignorance.
    Some said that Eric behaved like a misogynist. I disagree because we saw that Eric greatest loyality belongs to Pam, a woman he does not desire in a sexual way and whom he treats as an equal. We already learned that Pam´s health is more important to him than the promise he gave his dying father and his crush for Sookie. For her he worked together with his enemy RE , flatted him, disclaimed Godric only to save his child from the magister.
    Bill on the other hand acted unbelievably paternalistic towards Sookie in this ep. Instead of discussion the situation and all (!) options with her he chose to deal with Jason “from man to man”. As former procurer of the Queen Bill has to know the power of RE and his obsession to use Sookie as a pawn in a to-be war. He must know the danger their in and the only solution: Eric´s help. by staying impassive he risks all of their lifes.

    • #12 by Missy on August 24, 2010 - 5:12 pm

      I would have thought that a 200 yo vampire would have known better then hiding in Jasons house! After knowing that Eric is not working for Russell anymore, Bill should have sought his help. The best for them all would be to work together. But of course Bill omittes the truth again and Sookie is still in her protective Bill bubble 😦 And that bubble could get her killed.

    • #13 by shecantbehave on August 24, 2010 - 5:56 pm

      well i dont think eric cares all that much for bills life.. bill is what keeping sookie away, but then again, if bill dies without her knowing te truth about him, she will grieve, and she will sorrow, and she will not search for love, especially not erics love, or though we all would love it..

      • #14 by Sarah on August 24, 2010 - 11:08 pm

        I think that Eric wants to protect Sookie and Pam plus to a smaller extent the employes of Fangtasia and maybe Jason (It is his house where Sookie hides thus he is also in serious danger).
        The survival/death of Bill does not affect him personally but it is a byproduct of protecting the others.

      • #15 by talktrueblood on August 24, 2010 - 11:09 pm

        I agree.

    • #16 by talktrueblood on August 24, 2010 - 11:40 pm

      Thank you so much Sarah! Plus, I always love your comments!

      I think Eric is very tragic but then again I think all the characters are tragic on this show in their own ways. The tragedy on this show is almost overwhelming. Eric’s story is so completely moving because it’s life, it’s death, it’s loyalty, it’s unrequited love, it’s passion, it’s fatherly love, it’s desperation, it’s suffering, it’s depression, it’s (brother/sisterhood), it’s grief, it’s a desire for vengenace, it’s self sacifice,…. it’s every conflicted and fascinating and relatable human emotion…
      I agree about everything you said about Eric and Pam’s relationship and what it means to him as well as what it means in interpreting his character.
      It’s clear Eric will do anything for those he loves, including sacrificing himself.
      It is so sad.
      He will probably redeem himself in Sookie’s eyes once she realizes he was willing to die for everyone, including her.
      I agree that Bill is being selfish as usual…we will see what decision Bill makes in the end. Eric has already made his.

  7. #17 by Missy on August 24, 2010 - 5:00 pm

    And I love your recap 🙂
    It was so frustrating to see all the truth omitted by Bill. The look on Erics face when Sookie told him she was not giving him what he wanted was so so very sad, he thinks she cares nothing for him.
    I don’t know what Yvetta thought she was???? She had been working there for maybe a little more than a week and she wanted Eric to provide for her bc they had sex? She will mean trouble later on, I think.
    It felt good to watch Jason kick Bill out of his house! He was absoloutly right for not trusting him, he had drained his sister and still tried to order Jason around like a schoolboy. *High five*

    THIS: ”THE BEAUTY OF THE ERIC AND SOOKIE relationship is it’s hearbreakingly painful for them to resist though it is sometimes necessary to do so and it exposes every weakness and dark corner of these two (that is why they resist it) while simultaneously exposing the strength and the light in these two (which is why they love each other or will love each other and won’t be able to fight it). It brings out every human emotion forth and that is why it is so very interesting to watch”
    Exactly my dear!

    • #18 by talktrueblood on August 24, 2010 - 11:23 pm

      Bill and Sookie are the most frustrating people on this show which makes the show frustrating and that is the point to it I think.

      I almost cried when I saw the looks on Eric’s face as I replayed the episode.
      The worst line to hear was, “Don’t pretend you care about me.”
      Then he gets a kiss (she clearly enjoyed) yet she hurts his feelings in order to justify it to herself and possibly Bill later on (if it gets to that point).

      I can definitely see the Yvetta thing being the negative catalyst for Eric next season. She will not be Hallow as some have speculated but she will cause him problems (maybe because she may work with someone like Hallow), partly for her own revenge and partly for her own selfish motives. She was working as a stripper in his bar, yet she assumes she is like a treasured wife or something because they had sex? Like I said, I think it was to illustrate what women often expect from Eric all the time, that he gets used for money and sometimes women aren’t just after him because he is a hot vampire (though I don’t see why haha). Even he is not beyond being used and like I said. Sookie surprises him because she still uses him, yet it is not for sex or money. She also refuses to be subserviant to him despite his status and power, which is what attracted him to Pam I am guessing.

      Thank you for the compliment on my comment concerning the E/S relationship…it is why we find them so attractive and fascinating, despite both of their faults.

    love ur blog!

  9. #21 by LLE on August 24, 2010 - 5:28 pm

    I wonder if Sam really kill the couple or Bill did it and put the killing in Sam thoughts. Bill can be controlling Sam with his vampire blood and Sam out of controlled like Sookie is.

    • #22 by shecantbehave on August 24, 2010 - 5:59 pm

      just a secound.
      why would bill kill them? i dont believe bill is alltogether evil, he dont just kill, just to, you know, kill.
      theres absolutely no reason for him to do so?

      • #23 by LLE on August 24, 2010 - 10:44 pm

        False memory because Bill is controlling Sam with his blood. Sam is going in very dark place and so is Sookie because they have Bill’s blood.

    • #24 by Missy on August 24, 2010 - 10:32 pm

      I don’t think Bill did that. This happened before he moved to Bon Temps.

      • #25 by LLE on August 24, 2010 - 10:46 pm

        But did it really happen and Sam has drank Bill’s blood and Bill is controlling Sam. Sookie and Sam are going very dark character after drinking Bill’s blood.

      • #26 by talktrueblood on August 24, 2010 - 11:54 pm

        I listen to any theories but I would have to see further proof to indicate that and I simply think Bill’s blood is bringing out that side of Sam again.
        But Renee’s interesting theories indicate anything is possible.

    • #27 by talktrueblood on August 24, 2010 - 11:46 pm

      wow, that is a theory I have not heard yet.
      very interesting.

      I simply assumed it was there to show that he has a dark past too, much like Bill.
      Therefore, he is not innocent and does not deserve to be held on a higer plane than Sookie’s other suitors.

      • #28 by LLE on August 25, 2010 - 1:17 am

        Sam sure did bad thing to survive but not necessary murder. Everybody capable of murder.

        Sam drank a lot of Bill’s blood and Bill can easy controlled Sam through his blood. Bill is doing the same thing with Sookie and everyone warning Sookie to not trust Bill.

      • #29 by talktrueblood on August 25, 2010 - 1:19 am

        That is true.
        I think Sam is in the same dark position as Sookie and it is quite sad.
        They have both had megaloads of his blood.

  12. #33 by anna on August 25, 2010 - 10:09 am

    Great analysis, many thanks.
    Some random thoughts:
    Bad karma can be mitigated by good deeds such as acting (selflessly) to save someone else, so in theory that should play out in favour of some of the characters.
    Karma also applies to the writers’ actions so I wonder how that will play out for them, it may be a fictional universe but it does have an effect in the real world.
    Rats in India are associated with Ganesha the remover of obstacles as he is often shown riding on one.

    • #34 by talktrueblood on August 25, 2010 - 3:23 pm

      I think so too about the bad karma being mitigated by good deeds such as acting selflessly.
      Very nice thoughts regarding the actions of the writers and your comments about Ganesha.

      • #35 by anna on August 25, 2010 - 4:57 pm

        Thank you!

  13. #36 by anna on August 25, 2010 - 12:47 pm

    This doesn’t really come under predictions more under rats so I just posted this over on SVB.
    Does the fact that Mae is Lafayette’s 3 x great grandma mean that Bill was around when Winnie needed saving from the Master? If so would that be another rat?
    Kind of remember a funny look from Tara’s mother when she saw Bill the first time, I’ve probably got this and the dates wrong but just wondered.

    • #37 by talktrueblood on August 25, 2010 - 3:28 pm

      It is very possible. I hadn’t thought of that before.
      I would not be surprised in the least to find out all the negative things that probably went on in regard to Bill’s “slaves.”

      • #38 by anna on August 25, 2010 - 4:56 pm

        It’s funny how (I think) Bill says he can only remember a yard slave and yet there was a whole very plush office dedicated to plantation work…

      • #39 by talktrueblood on August 26, 2010 - 2:53 am

        Bill obviously remembers everything if he is so attached to his human life.
        I seriously doubt there was one slave. I wouldn’t necessarily hold it against him since it was the times unless he was a cruel owner who had them out there working the cotton fields 20 hours a day…but why lie about it?
        obviously he is hiding something.

      • #40 by Bobsgran on August 26, 2010 - 6:33 pm

        You are soooo right TTB. Just look at the house he “inherited”.
        That ain’t no share croppers hovel. It was a mansion and mansions need a lot of upkeep by lots of people (slaves). It would also cost a fair bit to run.

        I lived in Charleston, SC and I think I can safely compare a residential 1800’s home with a plantation home
        from the the 1800’s. He would have definitely had more than one slave if he lived in a planatation home and
        not a simple residential homes.
        1800’s residential homes did not have a large foyer or grand staircase or PLANTATION OFFICE.
        They often had a very small foyer and a narrow staircase and a smaller living room and certainly not
        a large front porch. Most of the time they only had a small side porch to capture the breeze due to the lack
        of air conditioning, obviously.

    Makes one wonder about what Bill really did during the Civil War as apparently he’s lied about everything else.
    Lots of room for speculation as I know very little about the American Civil War!
    He wanted to kill the kid for crying so considering his present MO he might have killed him and then shot his friend as he was a witness. Could he have been a turncoat? Can’t imagine a slave owner as a common soldier so did they become officers?

      I am sure Bill probably got an automatic promotion as a plantation owner. He may have been an officer because of that….hmmm
      He might have betrayed or farmed out his men with little concern other than protecting his own skin. Aparently nobody cared to help anyone else at the end when it disbanded

    Hi TTB,

    I just discovered your blog and really enjoy the body language interpretations. I’m looking forward to your input after this season’s finale!

    I find it ironic that Bill is always described as being most attached to his humanity, yet he is obviously the most inhumane of the core vampires on the show. The deepest of his emotions are, at best, superficial, as evidenced by his “infatuated tween” status. His concern for Sookie is only to further his own agenda, to isolate her from other vampires and even other humans. He manipulates her emotions to keep her as far as possible from the most humane vampire, Eric. Bill is the most vampiric, emotionally, of the show’s core group of vampires.

      Thank you so much. I will have a lot of pieces about the full season once the finale airs.

      I agree with all of the Bill/Eric points and I put it like this:
      “Bill would not be trying so hard to seek out his humanity if he already had it. Eric does not want it sometimes but has it!”
