Stephen Moyer as Pontius Pilate in "Killing Jesus"
Stephen Moyer plays the Roman Governor in the new film, "Killing Jesus" which is scheduled to be seen in Spring 2015 on the National Geographic Channel.
Bill is just as confused and shocked as we all still are after discovering that he has been infected with Hep-V. Sitting in his bedroom, deliciously wrapped in only a towel, our poor Bill takes a moment to let it all sink in and then makes the decision to contact a law office to get his affairs in order.
While trying to make an appointment with Kapneck Law Offices Jessica returns home from Sookie’s party and overhears him saying that he is Hep-V positive. Jessica is in total shock about this terrible news, but tries to act as normal as possible and tries to tell her maker about the fight she’s had with James. She asks Bill if he is ok, but he doesn’t confide in her yet and tells her he is fine.
At the law offices Bill discovers that he is not the only sick vampire who is in need of a lawyer, the waiting room is packed and all he can do is take a number and wait.
While Jessica informs Jason and Sookie about the condition of her maker, Bill is still waiting for his number to come up at the law office. His health is deteriorating rapidly and to his horror he sees how the black veins appear on his arm at a rate never before seen in Hep-V. The dude next to him moves quickly to another seat.
Since Sookie infected Bill it could be possible that the virus has mutated because of her fae blood, she might smell like sunshine but her blood is deadly now to vampers. Sookie is devastated that she is the cause of Bill’s Hep-V infection and certain death. She tells Jason that she can still sense Bill, that he is in her blood, there is something about the first.
Just before it’s his turn at the Kapneck Law Offices Bill discovers that the veins have already spread to his chest and his situation is getting more critical by the moment, he needs to get his affairs in order asap. Unfortunately, it turns out that thanks to the late Governor Burrell the Vampire Rights Amendment and Bill is unable to leave his estate to Jessica, since progenies are not recognized by law. The only way around this problem would be to adopt Jessica, but that would take too long, Bill is dying.
There is however a way to expedite the process and here the sharky lawyer lady lives right up to her reputation: for the feeble fee of $10,000,000 she can move Bill up to the front of the line. Even if Bill had that kind of money, and I have no idea if he does, he wouldn’t consider bowing down to extortion. When he can take no more of her whining, Bill picks up the letter opener from her desk and plunges it straight in her throat. He finishes off her vampire assistant with a pencil on his way out. We haven’t seen Bill kill like this in a long time and it reminds me of the Bill he was in season 1.
Bill returns home. Dispirited, tired and desperate. He is sick, he is dying and there is no way he can leave his estate to his beloved progeny. He puts on his jacket to hide the dark veins on his arms and staggers for a moment walking up to the house. Inside he is surprised to find the 2 most important persons in his life waiting for him with tearstained faces. Sookie and Jessica are there for him. He doesn’t have to go through it alone.
Karma is a bitch.
Well done Shad.
Bill sitting there on the bench at the foot of his bed deep in thought, no doubt he was shocked to find himself inflicted with HepV. I wonder if he was also thinking it had to be from when he fed from Sookie? That would be an additional blow despite the fact it was by accident.
Of course Bill did not want to reveal his illness to Jessica until it was absolutely necessary but he had no idea the virus would accelerate the way it did.
So like Bill to want to make the arrangements to provide for Jess. That attorney thought, Bill a successful author, would be ripe for the picking. Boy did she pick the wrong Vampire to attempt to extort. I think she received the fee she deserved.
His two girls waiting for him, it looks like there will be no delaying the talk.
Sookie at long last admitting to herself and Jason her feelings for Bill are ever present. She has wasted all this time she could have been with Bill and now she learns he is ill and she is the cause though it was unintentional. No good deed goes unpunished so they say. The act of feeding the love of her life may kill him.
Bill has had more crap heaped on him than any human or decent vampire should have to deal with. Bill is a testament of strength and perseverance and I pray it serves him well now. I fear because of the Fae blood the virus has mutated and accelerated so he needs magic as well as the antidote. If Sookie loses all her Fae power to save him so be it. Niall better have a trick up his sleeve. It breaks my heart the mere thought of Bill dying. That is not way for this love story to end because the idea behind the story is to show how being different is okay and that their is someone out for everyone though it may not be who you expect it to be.
* I am lodging a complaint that the only time we've see Bill naked this final season is to show he is ill. 4 episodes left so I remain hopeful.
I think Bill will end up fine. I don't think they intend to kill him off. I loved this episode, full of fear and love and angst. The last scene is where I got a tear.
waiting sucks but it also sucks that we have so few more episodes.
Well Done, Shad! as usual.
So sad to see Bill infected, and to watch the rapid spread of the disease as he sits in the lawyer's waiting room. I'm glad he offed the greedy bitch, and as an afterthought did in her vampire assistant. He kept the news from Jessica before he left the mansion for his appointment. Of course, she had overheard him on the phone and the words "Hep V positive" were a devastating blow to her. He will not be alone in his final days-hours. Sookie and Jessica, with arms around each other, were waiting for him when he got home. Sick and rapidly weakening, it must have cheered his undead heart just a bit to know he would not be alone at the end. I cannot believe this is it for Bill. Sarah Newlin is the cure. Somehow, some way she must be spared from Eric's wrath so she can begin her healing mission. We know she's a nut case, but I'm willing to set that aside for now. Let the Buddha do her work and heal Bill and Eric.
Bill has suffered so much in the last 6 seasons, I was hoping he wouldn't have to through any awful ordeals this season, but this is the worst ever! I am so worried and dismayed for him. Of course he's trying to provide for Jessica, as any good father would do. Ms. Kapnek deserved her fate. (BTW, her figure was $10,000,000.00 for going to the front of the line.)
Somehow he must be saved. Perhaps Niall can help, IDK.
I cried through a lot of these scenes. I totally understood why he put up the brave front at first, for Jess. I really felt for him, as a parent, being so discriminated against, at the lawyer's office. I'm grateful that Sookie realizes he is her true love, finally, and is going to be with him. I'm beyond sad......
@Willkill4Bill I second that complaint! lol. we have seen so little nakedness from anyone on the show! I agree also that Sookie will probably get help from Niall to cure Bill. We have seen a clip of Sookie holding Niall's hands with a purple light....perhaps he is giving her a "recharge" to cure Bill with. and who knows what else that could accomplish...both Sookie becoming human and hopefully Bill cured and/or human too.
@Rowena75 Since Bill seems to be having a mutated strain of the Hep-V virus I fear that Sarah will not be able to cure him.
@iamtrue2bill forgot a 0, will fix that, thanks.
@My Obsession Since Bill seems to be having a mutated strain of the Hep-V virus I fear that Sarah will not be able to cure him.
