The news that season seven will be True Blood’s swan song has slowly been sinking in. It is truly hard to believe there are only ten episodes left of our beloved True Blood. Only ten episodes to come to a (hopefully) satisfying conclusion for the vampire who has captured our hearts and taken us for a wild ride. Bill Compton is certainly not a character created for the fair weather fan! With everything he (and his steadfast fans!) have been through, we’re hopeful that Brian Buckner and company have good things in mind for Bill when the final credits roll.
But do we all have the same hopes for Bill? This is where you, the fan, comes in! We’ve asked a few of our forum members to share their hopes for Bill for the final season of True Blood. Think of it as a kind of Bill Compton Wish List. But along with the good, might also come the not so good. So, we’ve asked people about not only what they hope to see happen, but also what they think is likely to happen. We’re trying to cover all the bases, not that anyone can necessarily predict the craziness of True Blood.
The first submission comes by way of Nia. When the phrase, “ask and thee shall receive” was invented, they must have had Nia in mind, as we no more than asked, and she hit the keyboard hard and heavy, creating this amazing piece for us. If you’d love to share your hopes for Bill Compton in the coming season, we’d love to hear from you. Hit us up at email@example.com. This will be an ongoing series that we’ll be running as we all prepare to bid our final adieu to our favorite vampire, Bill Compton. But first, here is Nia’s take on what she’d like to see for Bill …
The Man The Journey
A Lover’s Reflections, Wishes and Fears
It’s the beginning of the end. The end of an era and a shared journey whose affects will be felt for a lifetime, especially by this fan. And now nights of future past filled with dreams or nightmares beckon us. Bill Compton was and continues to be a noble, honorable and beautiful man. It was these very characteristics that plunged him headfirst unwillingly into darkness and onto a path of soul wrenching tragedy and pain. His continuing story lay hold to our hearts.
Stripped of choice, Bill was thrown into a world ruled by night. As a human it was one he never would have believed possible and it now warred with everything he held dear. Brave soldier and fighter, to whom surrender was never an option, combined with a keen intelligence and ever the pragmatist, he survived that initial circumstance. In the years following, we were witness to his determination and strength of spirit, ever proving that the good of the many is paramount over the good of the few or the one.
Circumstances once again steered him onto a more global path to improve relations for humans and vampires alike. With the long years on this difficult mission, love was never an option nor desirable until a fateful day in which it caused him to cross paths with one who would become the true love of his life and his miracle.
