Remembering True Blood’s Bill Compton Flashbacks

I personally love the flashbacks in True Blood and that so many of them are about Bill!  “Thanks for the memories, True Blood!

SPOILER ALERT! - And, we know that there will be more Bill flashbacks in Season 7.

Here’s what we already know:

  • Bill will be going back to 1862 during the time of the Civil War and will clash with others around him concerning his thoughts on the ensuing war.
  • We will meet Bill’s parents, William Compton Sr. and Margaret Compton in 1855.
  • We’ll also see Caroline Compton (Shannon Lucio) give birth to one of Bill’s kids in the 1850s.
  • We will meet Bill’s father’s slave, “Minus” that  Bill mentioned in Season 1 when he met Sookie’s grandmother and Tara asked him if he had owned slaves.

Thanks to we can visually reflect on the many flashbacks we have had of our precious vampire, Bill Compton in seasons 1 to 6 by viewing the gif images that they presented on their tumblr site (see below).

Again, I’m really hoping for some excellent Civil War flashbacks this final season. What kind of flashbacks are you looking for this coming season? Do you like them? Tell us in the comments below.

True Blood Season 7 to feature Bill Compton Civil War Flashback

Most Stephen Moyer and Bill Compton fans love the flashbacks that the show has had which give us glimpses into Bill’s past. There have been several Civil War flashbacks and in the final season of True Blood we learn that there is to be another Bill Compton flashback to when he was a human.

Bill will be going back to 1862 during the time of the Civil War and will clash with others around him concerning his thoughts on the ensuing war. Bill was turned into a vampire at the age of 30 in 1865, three years after the upcoming flashback.


But what does Bill’s 1862 flashback have to do with the drama in Season 7? With humans still waging a war on vampires and the Hep-V virus spreading, it’s possible that Bill could be looking to the past to solve some of the current problems plaguing Bon Temps. Another theory? The vampire can be thinking back to some of his regrets. Bill will be dealing with another war in the present as the threat of Hep V spreads. Moyer previously said that vampires and humans would be looking out for each other in final season of the show, as Enstars previously reported.

Bill and Sam [Sam Trammell] got together and kind of came up with this idea that each human should have their own vampire protecting them, so that’s another theme that we will follow throughout the season,” Moyer revealed.

There will a lot of human-vampire interaction in the final season of True Blood. The show is reportedly going back to the simplicity of the first season with humans and vampires coexisting in Bon Temps rather than branching off into many storylines.

Everyone’s going to come under the umbrella of that main story. These are complicated relationships now because they’re feeding – it’s not necessarily sex, but things get confused sometimes, especially in vampires’ minds.

As we previously reported, “True Blood” was looking to cast a 5-year-old Sarah Compton, Bill’s daughter with his wife Caroline. Sarah Compton will reportedly be seen in the 1862 flashback, but will not have a speaking role.

True Blood season 7 premieres in summer 2014 on HBO, though the network has not yet announced a premiere date.

Vote for Bill Compton as TV’s Hottest Dad

Tomorrow is not just True Blood’s season premiere day, but it’s also Father’s Day.  Every Stephen Moyer fan knows that Stephen is a wonderful dad in real life, but we also think that had his human life not been taken away from him at the end of the Civil war, that Bill Compton would for sure be our favorite TV dad. He loved his family and would have loved to return to them. And, even after becoming a vampire, he has also been a good maker to Jessica (except for that one little outburst last season, ahem) and while we can’t predict how that will go this season, we still would rate Bill among the top TV dads.
