    The season finale looks like it might be Bill that is turning Bad …like Alan Ball has stated “a major character that was good will turn bad.” Ironic that Eric is trying to save Bill? Looks likes a very promising episode to me.

      Knowing Alan Ball nothing is what it seems

    Of course if any of these descriptions are valid …..I hope they are …..we will find out.

    If THEY turn Bill into a bad guy, I will quit watching. It won’t be True Blood anymore anyway. If I wanted to watch the same old vampire crap I’d be watching The Vampire Diaries. Charlaine Harris’s characters have stood the test of time and indeed caught Allan Ball’s atention because they had something else…and I think THEY have missed the point entirely.

      I believe it’ll be alright even if it is Bill that is the good guy turned bad, I believe they’ll have a good reason for it.

      But writing this response to you just made me come up with what my happen. And if my predictions are right then, it’ll definitely be a valid for why Bill is the bad guy.

      • esw45

        July 11, 2012 at 2:20 pm

        @kurenai, do you think that it will come out that Bill had something to do with Sookie’s parents death? Maybe with Lillith and Salome turned him into being bad? What is your theory?

        • Kurenai

          July 11, 2012 at 3:21 pm

          No, I don’t think it has to do with what the fairies said.

          Here’s the start of my crazy theory.

          People already believe that Hoyt is already apart of that Supernatural killing group, people already believe that it consists of his friends that we met at Merlotte’s.

          There is also a spoiler that a main character will die this season (we don’t know when), Deborah Ann Wall said that her character will weave in and out of Hoyt’s storyline (but she hasn’t mentioned what else her character will doing this season …since the whole Jessica being a teen thing finished up in a couple of episodes). There is also a spoiler going around that Jessica get’s captured by this hate group.

          What if Hoyt’s friends think they’re doing Hoyt a favor by capturing Jessica, maybe they believe that Hoyt wants revenge and so they surprise him. What if at the end of all this fiasco with Hoyt’s storyline it results in Jessica’s death.

          And then Jessica’s death would the catalyst to Bill losing his humanity. Jessica is his first and only progeny, we all know that bond is strong and it would make sense if Bill is filled with so much anguish and hate.

          Alan Ball said that a character we always thought was good will be bad next season. And I know some don’t think of Bill as good but in the most basic of terms Bill is the good guy with his own secrets and Eric is the bad guy with some memorable moments.

          I think if my theory were to happen it would make sense and be an actual good reason to turn Bill into the bad guy for next season.

          But this is all just a theory.

            @Kurenai If Jessica dies I’m out. Her beautiful self is what drew me into the show the minute I laid eyes on her… QUICK KNOCK ON WOOD, please???

          • Helen

            July 12, 2012 at 1:41 pm

            Your theory makes total sense. I’d quite like to see Bill’s character change for a while, could make for some interesting story lines.

          • Ellen

            July 12, 2012 at 11:36 pm

            Makes sense, but if Jessica dies I’ll be super pissed. I would still watch the show but it wouldn’t be the same.

          • esw45

            July 13, 2012 at 7:38 am

            I don’t believe Jessica is going to die …..its the blood of lillith in that vial that causes Bill to start changing to the dark side.

          • Valarie

            July 13, 2012 at 12:52 pm

            What could be more human than wanting to kill the people that hurt your child?

            July 14, 2012 at 12:07 am

            I just hope Jess doesn’t end..
            I pray. Bill would turn bad.. Really bad.. Cause he loves her too much and I pray Sam and Luna aren’t dead..
            Something else, I read Stephen Moyer is open to a gay sex scene with Alex. Can u picture that? That’s crazy.. But, Alcide and Sookie, guess my wish want come tru now since the clip I Just saw.

          • NG

            July 14, 2012 at 12:57 pm

            Nope, (Spoiler) Bill and Eric taste the blood in that vial and they trip out…Bill in a bad way.

      • Valarie

        July 13, 2012 at 1:01 pm

        I just thought it was good that Bill had done bad in the past and came out of it a better person. He feels so bad about the things he did when his maker was running the show.Just like last season when he let Eric go even when he had the green light to give him the true death. Eric can’t be good unless he has no idea who he is. But bill didn’t have to lose his memory to know to do the right thing. I just sort of saw him as a beacon. An unchaging constant person that you could count on. Seems like you can’t count on anyone in this version of the Sookievers.

    • Sookieeleana

      July 11, 2012 at 2:08 pm

      there will probably be a good reason for his struggle – sounds like he is going to be influenced maybe by Lilith? She might be able to control other vamps? Anyway Eric will probably save him – this is TB remember – there are no good guys and bad guys and Bill’s character has always been up and down on the show.

      Any way to find out if these spoilers are 100% for real?

  4. esw45

    July 11, 2012 at 3:50 pm

    I like that theory…..would fit into him becoming bad and Eric trying to save him is going to put his life in jeopardy as well and we know sookie will be involve…..there was a rumor that Sookie might be having sex in the finale with someone and thats partially why she has a lookalike actress for those nude body shots …..but these are just rumors.

    • Kurenai

      July 11, 2012 at 4:00 pm

      Yes I’ve heard of that, I also heard that the double was used for a Bill and Sookie sex scene. I don’t know if it’s true or not but I think if the rumor it may take out my theory. Although maybe Sookie, Eric, and whoever believed they actually helped Bill and next season we see it didn’t actually work.

    God, I hope Jessica’s death doesn’t turn Bill evil and I hope Jessica doesn’t meet the true death!

    um, Faerie Elder!?!, anybody thinking Niall!!

  7. esw45

    July 11, 2012 at 5:34 pm

    Yes, I think true blood’s version of Niall ……its a woman faerie elder.

    • Tina

      July 12, 2012 at 9:27 pm

      I think is a woman. Because they where looking for a older woman who had a background in dancing.

      • Valarie

        July 13, 2012 at 1:08 pm

        I think Niall’s flighty character would work well on a woman. Since Claudine is dead do you think they will trot out Claudette?

    It is always awful to loose such talent on True Blood, who ever does their casting knows what they are doing. Can you imagine another person playing Eric or espeically Pam. With that said if I have to guess, which I really don’t want to, I think perhaps Terry and the only reason I say this is because during an interview he mentioned that he is working on a different TV show.
    Now I might get a few people upset here, but Bill has not always been Mr Niceguy. If you go back to the start, his plans were to suduce Sookie for the queen. He did let her get beat up pretty badly before he got all white knight. Also something that I would not consider to be Mr Niceguy is last season, when he told Sookie he wasn’t concerned about a few people dying in their efforts to kill the witch. Also Bill did work with Nan to over throw the queen.
    Now we all love Bill especially his struggle between his being a vampire and once again finding some thing he had lost in his own humanity. But no mistake Bill is vampire first.

    July 13, 2012 at 3:20 pm

    OMG Eric having to save Bill?! My has Eric changed from the season!

    • esw45

      July 19, 2012 at 9:21 pm

      Chelsea, if you have been watching true bllod from season 1 thru now, yes Eric has been changing every season because when we see Eric in season 1 he is the bad vampire who doesn’t like humans and seems to only like Pam and wants to make Bill’s life horrible.

      Season 2 Godrick is missing and we fnd out that he is Eric’s maker and Eric has very deep feeling for him. Eric actually cries when Godrick is going to committ the true death and Sookie is with him because of tricking her to drink his blood and also so we begin to see layers that Eric has not just a one dimensional character that we thought he was.

      Season 3 we see where Eric is developing feelings for Sookie by not lying too her even though its in his best interest to do so and Eric not Bill is the one that is going to commit true death to himself and Russell to protect Sookie from Russell….Does Eric always do the right thing heck no! he makes mistakes like chaining Sookie in the dungeon but still he was putting his life out there for a human which is unthinkable for Eric in season 1.

      In Season 4, Eric lost his memory because of a spell and the new Eric wasn’t arrogant and only wanted to be with Sookie and they both fell in love with each other and then when he got his memory back he still wanted to be with her and love only her.

      Now this season, he is trying to be the old uncaring and unfeeling Eric but he cant go back to that vampire total because he has grown and even though he wants to not care about Sookie he is still in love with her…he just doesn’t trust she ever really wanted him. Him and Bill are now suppose to start caring about each other so much that he puts his life on the line to save Bill from himself because Bill becomes evil from drinking Lillith’s blood according to the final 3 episodes summaries. Eric has grown into a full vampire with deep feelings of love for the people he cares about which now includes Bill Compton of all people.

    All this about Lilith. Who in the hell will play her? Or is she somebody we’ve seen? God, I hope it’s not jess. I love her.. Maybe the fairies come in and try to save Bill.

    • Valarie

      July 14, 2012 at 12:25 pm

      Its some girl that used to be on General Hospital…….”Ever busy former “General Hospital” actress Brianna Brown (ex-Lisa) has added another role to her expanding repertoire. This week she is shooting an episode for the hit HBO vampire series “True Blood.” The details of who she will be playing have not yet been released.”

  13. Angk

    July 14, 2012 at 9:53 pm

    WAIT! Did I just see that clip right?? Sookie..giving up her faerie power?? Really? Wow, that would be like Eric or Bill being “cured” of being a vamp which would totally KILL the show. Help please, I just can’t wrap my head around it.

  14. susbraska

    July 15, 2012 at 6:21 pm

    My theories and thoughts, not based on facts.
    I suspect that the woman who unearthed Russell is Lilith.
    I hope Lafayette gets rid of the demon, yet helps Terri get rid of the Ifrit.

    It’s obvious who really loves Sookie. It’s Bill.
    Jessica isn’t going anywhere, nor is Terri B.
    Salome appears to be a double agent authority member.
    The Shifter shooters appear to be wolves led by Martha in revenge for the death of Marcus.

    I think at some point Sookie will de-glamorize Alcide, eventually. A clip released by HBO readying for the Episode tonight shows Eric glamouring Alcide into not wanting Sookie sexually. Hmn.

    I think the fairies may be lying about who caused the deaths of Sookie and Jason’s folks. However, the vampire causation death theory sounds plausible.

    Thanks for letting me vent.
    Can’t wait for tonight!

    First Comment..if you look on HBOs Season 5 previews one and two you see the vampire that killed Sookies parents…it looks like Eric! He was drawn to them from Sookies blood on bandaid in backseat? Did anyone else see this?

    • Brooke K.

      July 16, 2012 at 10:11 pm

      Pretty sure it was Roman who killed Sook’s parents.

    • Michele

      July 18, 2012 at 10:28 am

      It could also be Bill, cause I remember in Season 3 after he had drained Sookie and Sookie was dreaming, Claudine was telling her it was not the water, it was vampires that killed your parents and then a dark shadow appeared (Bill) and freaked out Claudine. I need to watch Season 3 again, cause i think she told Sookie to not trust him??

      • Mel

        July 18, 2012 at 10:44 am

        Whoa, I forgot about that! Claudine just warned Sookie about “the vampire”, and Sookie assumed she meant Bill. I love how they drop clues about future storylines so far in advance!

  16. gina

    July 16, 2012 at 5:11 pm

    I think that Bill had something to do with the release of Russel, after all, he was the one that held a steak to Eric threatening him not to kill Russel then and there.

  18. cox

    I think the vampire who killed Sookie’s parents will be Russell and there will be a Sookie, Jason and Russell confronation. It is possible the good character turning bad will be Alcide,after he becomes Packmaster. I am not sure who is in bed with Sookie, could be Eric, could be Claude and it could be a dream. Eric, Claude and Bill,( the back of their hair is similar.)

  19. cox

    July 17, 2012 at 7:45 am

    I also believe Eric truly loves Sookie, when he glamoured Alcide the first thing he requested was for Alcide to protect Sookie even with his life.

    • esw45

      July 19, 2012 at 8:54 pm

      Eric does really love Sookie anyone that watches true can see in his eyes that he is hurt and is still in love with her. Bill loves her but Eric loves her very deeply too but they are too very different vampires and therefore handles her not wanting them differently….but it doesn’t mean Bill loves Sookie more than Eric.

    Interesting theories there everyone. Here are my thoughts…**Spoilers Possible**

    First off, I am, always have been, and always will be an Eric/Sookie fan. They already know that they are renewed for another year, and have enough material to go to at least 13 seasons (considering the books, and the fact that they VERY losely base each season on one of them.) That being said, they have kind of gone off the rails on the Sookie/Eric storyline. He was always a pretty good guy, who happens to be Vampire first. The fae war brings Eric and Bill together in the books and Eric is the one who has to save Bill’s butt during the big Vamp takeover, right? Personally, having RE take power is very similar to Felippe DeCastro in my opinion. I could totally see this being the way they cover that story. They also need something like Eric helping Bill to show Sookie what a good guy he is. (Even if he is a little pushy about it.)

    I know the spoilers out there say that a character will die (Hello, Tara died officially) And it is quite possible that Jessica will see her last moon on the show. She was not a book character anyway, and because of that, in my opinion is expendable. I really am not sure who is going to die, but if they are crossing over to the Fae War, and since they have not given us a Tray Dawson character yet, maybe this will be how they do the killing off part??? Whatever they do, it won’t be Sookie, Jason, Bill, Eric, or Pam. If any one of these actors/actresses leave the show the show is over. But with how they cover so many characters in other characters on the show, anyone else is up for grabs as far as I can see.

    Who we thought was good, and is now bad??? Could be Bill. I think it is Nora or Solame. We thought she was such a good leader, right hand of Roman and all. Nope! I think Solame was the woman who freed RE, and plans to be his Queen or whatever. Nora is clearly off her Vamp Rocker. So either of them could easily fill this description.

    Unless they go so far off the mark (Sookie is only excited to TRY and give up her fae power, not like she will succeed.) of the books that they actually try to do the show without Eric/Bill/Pam or total insanity Sookie, I will watch every episode of this show thousands of times, like I have read the books. Everyone else is completely up for grabs and if you are watching the show strictly for any other character, you are missing the whole point of the show/books.

    • Mexton

      July 21, 2012 at 2:53 am

      I believe it’s Nora also

    July 18, 2012 at 4:21 am

    If you look at the still image of the vampire on the bridge doing the flood, it was Russell who killed Sookie’s parents. The form fits Denis O’Hare’s perfectly.

    I do consider Bill a good Guy. He’s one of my favorites and it is him in bed with Sookie in the promo, not Eric. Why? I have no idea. Maybe it is a dream. I really don’t see how they can get a reunion in with all this Russell and Roman craziness going on. Does he rape her like in the books? I really hope not because he truly loves her. That would be a drastic change for the character.

    I also hope Jessica doesn’t it. Unfortuately though, eventually a lead character would be killed off. I just want to see which one.

    • Michele

      July 18, 2012 at 4:25 pm

      What promo is it that you see Bill in bed with Sookie, cause i can’t find it???

      • esw45

        July 19, 2012 at 8:56 pm

        Michelle, its at the end of the Comic-con trailer looks like Bill is in bed with Sookie biting her viciously from the looks of it.

        • Michele

          July 20, 2012 at 2:46 pm

          Thank You, found it, and yes i would say so also, I wonder if it’s dream she’s having? Maybe after learning that Bill could be the vampire that killed her parents???

  22. Eva

    July 19, 2012 at 12:25 am

    A lot of good theories on who killed Sookie and Jason’s parents but I think it was Bill. In season 3 both Russell and Eric were surprised to learn Sookie was a faerie. Bill might have known for a long time or maybe it’s just another vampire we haven’t met. I really was hoping to see it was the faeries like in the books. I am still curious to see who was their dad going to warn Jason about before he woke up. As to who is turning bad I think it’s Alcide he would make a great big bad wolf. Can’t wait until Sunday and see the outcome of Sundays episode.
