Over at Dreadcentral.com, they have compiled a list of the Top 10 Greatest Horrific Couples and True Blood’s Bill and Sookie are on the list.
There list of couples are those that were somehow uniquely intertwined within a film.
“True Blood” (2008)
Bill Compton and Sookie Stackhouse
The way they see it, “True Blood” is nothing more than Twilight for grown-ups. Personally, I think it’s so much more than that, but I won’t argue the point here.
As readers of Charlaine Harris’ The Sookie Stackhouse Novels know, things don’t always work out for the best for Sookie and Bill, but viewers of “True Blood,” especially the early seasons, can’t argue the red-hot chemistry this pair has on screen. It seems when Bill is around, the once awkward Sookie has immense trouble simply keeping her clothes on. Delivering one steamy scene after another, this on-screen couple (Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer) got wise and decided to tie the knot for real in a ceremony in 2010. If their home life is anything like we see in “True Blood,” I’m guess not a lot gets done around that house aside from a whole lot of “testing the springs in the coffin,” if you know what I mean (wink, wink, nudge, nudge).
Below is a trailer from Season 1, when it was all “magical.” Remember?
Ditto to the above. Season 1 Bill and Sookie lit up the screen with an incandescent light, and that heat still emanates whenever they are near each other on screen. It is undeniable and undiminished by time or circumstance.
I need to go back and re-watch Season 1, to feel that palpable heat between those two. Nothing anything like it since, particularly not between Sookie and the Viking.
Horror genre couples says it best, not horrific couples. A reprise of the magic. Season 1 remains my favorite. Thanks for providing the trailer, Lynn. Sookie and Bill rank right up there as a couple uniquely intertwined. Soul mates, I call them.
