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.
Our second entry comes by way of Mary. All y’all should be familiar with Mary by now, as she writes the excellent Bill Compton recaps for Simply Moyer. So, it goes without reason that when we asked her to share with us (and you) her hopes for Bill for the final season of True Blood, she submitted her musings immediately. 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 Mary’s take on what she’d like to see for Bill …
Bill Compton in Season 7: What’s in store for him? How will his story end?
It’s been six seasons since we met the vampire Bill Compton. In those six seasons, we’ve witnessed Bill travel a winding road on a challenging journey, one in which he’s evolved in remarkable ways, under extraordinary circumstances.
Our first glimpse of Bill was intriguing. He was a dark and mysterious figure, one who immediately demanded our attention and made us want to know more. He had that effect on Sookie too. She was drawn to him right away, and her interest only deepened, despite some misgivings about his vampire nature.
Early on there was evidence of Bill’s struggle within himself. In episode 1:02 he called on Sookie at her home, winning Gran over as he reminisced about his early human life in Bon Temps. In the very next episode, 1:03, Bill was entertaining three unsavory vampires and their fangbangers. In fact, he stopped them from feeding on Sookie, and then she returned the favor, saving him from a case of Hep-D. Very quickly we saw examples of Bill’s humanity as well as Bill’s vampire nature.
