Now that season six is almost underway (9 more days, but who’s counting?), more and more scoop is coming out. The June 6th Inside True Blood Blog contains some teasers from none other than Brian Buckner! And tease he does, since he doesn’t really answer the Million Dollar Question about things getting better between Bill and Sookie. But, there is some scoop involving Bill! Read no further if you’re allergic to spoilers!
One question all Truebies must have after the surprising ending of seasons 5 is, “What happened to Bill?!” Brian Buckner reveals the season 6 opener just scratches the surface on what happens after you drink all of Lilith’s blood — and it’s going to launch us on an exciting ride to discover Bill’s — or should we say Billith’s — new powers. And with new powers comes more heartache. According to Brian, “Look for things to get worse between Bill and Sookie before they get better. If they ever do.”
And what about love? We all know True Blood wouldn’t be True Blood without any romance to steam up our imaginations, so what does that mean for everyone’s romantic futures in the new season? The inside scoop tells us something we should not to expect: romance between Sookie and Alcide — at least not immediately. What we can expect is a more grown-up, self-knowing, fate-accepting, knows-what-she-wants-and-goes-after-it Sookie, which will make her sexier than ever and her light stronger.
And Sookie’s not alone in her heightened appeal. In the world of True Blood, vampires and humans have always had a special bond when blood is exchanged — Jason and Jessica are no different — but only time will tell us what that means in the new world order.
So what else can we expect to see this season, apart from a war between humans and vamps? Brian Buckner wants us to prepare for relationships to be tested and changed — more so than has been done in previous seasons. Among them, Andy will learn that raising four faerie daughters is much more involved than just raising human quadruplets and Alcide’s role as packmaster will be challenged.
