Why we know Bill and Sookie Belong Together

BuzzSugar has a cute little review of Bill and Sookie’s relationship as it transpired throughout in True Blood and we thought it would be fun to bring it over here and show it off. Since it’s almost the end of the show and, if Bill lives, it’s looking like they might end up together, so it makes sense to do this review. Though Bill is refusing to take the cure and be with Sookie, we kind of think the finale will figure out a way for them to be together, because their fate has been so clear from the beginning. Sookie may have drifted to Eric, Alcide, and others in the past, but Bill is the man who’s always been “the one.”

Here are all the signs these two were meant to be.


It’s pretty much love at first sight.
When Bill walks into Merlotte’s and Sookie sees him — before any saving, blood drinking, trickery, or anything — there’s just this.
Bill is her gateway into everything supernatural.
She doesn’t discover she’s fae for a while and doesn’t associate with any other supernaturals (that she knows of) until Bill.
Bill makes sacrifices for her from the beginning.
Whatever his motives prove to be later, Bill is gentle and sweet with the innocent Sookie.
And then he saves her from the Rattrays.
OK, so we’d find out later that Bill set up this attack so that Sookie would have to drink his blood and form a bond with him, but it’s clear that Bill is genuinely falling for her already.
A pattern of Bill saving Sookie is triggered
To keep Sookie safe, Bill claims Sookie as “his.”
It’s meant as a vampire thing, but we know it’s also totally a human thing of being into each other.
The relationship that forms is more than just sexual.
It’s love.
But it’s still very sexual.
The passion of these two pushes boundaries; it’s tender and rough at the same time (and occasionally, blood is drawn).
Sookie admits something big, and Bill commits a major act of revenge for her.
After Bill and Sookie first sleep together, she confesses that her Uncle Bartlett had molested her as a child. Angered, Bill murders him for Sookie’s sake.
They’re totally head over heels for each other in season one.
Remember how cute they were?!
They’re so in love, they dance like this!
When does anyone on this show have a moment like this anymore?
And then Bill proposes in a sweetly perfect and traditional fashion.
Too bad Sookie doesn’t get to say yes, because Bill gets kidnapped right after he asks. But still! It’s a rare act of conventional romance.
They’re the only couple who makes love on this show.
Sorry for using the term “make love,” but think about it; this is pretty much the only couple on this show that’s had this much committed-relationship sex.
Bill only breaks Sookie’s heart to keep her safe from Lorena.
Remember Lorena? Bill and Sookie’s big breakup in season three comes when Lorena is relentlessly trying to kill Sookie. Sookie agrees to the breakup when Bill nearly kills her by draining her blood shortly thereafter.
But they get back together.
They find their way back together then, the way they’ve found their way back to each other now.
They only break up for good over something BIG.
When Sookie finds Bill’s file on her family, that he knew she was faerie, and he staged the Rattray attack. It’s a lot.
Bill always regretted what he’d done and tried to make it right.
This is why he goes after Queen Sophie-Anne and tries to kill her; he had vowed to kill anyone who knows Sookie is a faerie.
Bill renounces Sookie, eventually, because she hurts him.
You know what they say; there’s a thin line between love and hate.
But they never stop thinking about each other.
Even though they spend quite a bit of time apart, they never really move on in other relationships.
Bill never falls in love with anyone else.
When he does see other people, like Portia, it’s only for sex. Remember how he tells her honestly, “I could never love you”?
Bill’s only real romantic competition is Eric, and you know how that goes.
These two are scorching hot together, but when Eric and Sookie do get together, it’s when Eric is basically brainwashed. He’s not the real Eric, and it’s not a real relationship, either.
Things are always off with Alcide.
Sookie tries earnestly to have a normal life with Alcide, and after he dies, what she says is right; he loved her more than she loved him.
Then, this season gives us little tidbits to remind us of the old Sookie and Bill.
 Like when they drink each others’ blood . . . even though it leads to Bill contracting Hep V.
Sookie and Bill forever!
 Well, if he gets his hands on that pesky cure.



  1. I get the feeling in this final episode, Bill is going to turn Sookie into a vampire. She wants to be with him, and I believe in the previews they showed a very large burial spot in the cemetery. At quick glance, it looked big enough for them both to lay in…hmm, this will be interesting!

  2. In the book series by Charlaine Harris, Sookie and Sam end up together. In my opinion, Bill and Sookie is a better match.

  3. I LOVE them together. They truly are True Blood’s greatest love story. You can feel the love and chemistry in every scene they are together. I want a HEA for this love story.

  4. No time left in the show for Sookie to end up with Eric.  If Bill dies, Sookie would need time to mourn Bill before she considers being with anyone else.  She would not get over Bill as easily as she did Alcide.

  5. Thanks for this.  Their relationship is the heart and soul of True Blood.  I have all the crossables crossed that Bill will be cured, and that they will end up together, as they were meant to be.

  6. Whatever keeps them together is fine by me. I hope Bill takes the cure, but I would rather Sookie turn Bill human than Bill turn Sookie vampire, because neither one of them wants to be vampire.  If being vampire is the only way they can be together, then I’m cool with that, too.  Bill cannot die!!!!

  7. Gonna miss you guys a lot! You’ve been part of my life for years- I remember the first time I saw your show years ago- I’m gonna cry Sunday when I say bye!

  8. The show has centered around Bill and Sookie for the entire series…whether together or apart they are always thinking about the other. The have to end up together..in some way…its the only way to end the show and have it come “full circle”.

  9. At least we know that won’t happen on the show- Sam is not in the finale. Bill and Sookie have always been the one true love story to me. It’s only fitting they end up together! ♥

  10. That’s what I was thinking. Either this exact idea because she will do anything for him to not give up his true self. Or they want us to think that he’s going to die and she will lay with him to the true death. Or hopefully something about this baby thing he foresaw might be the reason they either become together as one in the end. Either way I believe in some way they will be together as one in the end.

  11. I hope this happens but seriously with the visions and new blood they could most def create one more season on that. Because there’s so much left unsaid.

  12. I guess everyone forgot when she staked him on the porch…and when he almost drained her dry..maybe in real life they belong together… not for TB im sorry but some things u csnt cone back from..wud have liked to see her with eric…just an opinion.

  13. Hopefully she saves him with her fairy light and he turns her so they can be together forever like they were meant to be!

  14. I know the full story on this to have watched him since day one she is an advocate of that GLBT community but she really fell in love was Bill in real life they’re married and have two children two twins

  15. It seems like there is so much left to wind up, one episode doesn’t seem like enough.  They should have done a 12 episode season this year. 
    There are so many ways for this to end well, I’m hopeful that it will.  Could Sookie get rid of her light?  If she were just human, Sookie and Bill could be together, just like Jessica and Hoyt are.  Bill told Eric that if Sookie were not fae, she wouldn’t be attracted to them.  I believe Sookie would still love Bill, without that light/dark attraction between them.  Perhaps that will be the ending to the story, that they love each other and are destined to be together even without the supernatural connection.

  16. Sookie and Bill have gotten past the staking and draining.  Sookie didn’t believe it was really Bill when she staked him.  Sookie forgave Bill for the draining a long time ago.  Sookie wouldn’t be desperately trying to save Bill if she didn’t love him.  The show started with Bill and Sookie’s love story and that’s the way it will end.  I do wonder what will happen with Eric and Pam at the end.

  17. What a great little show of some of the most important moments in the show! Bill and Sookie both have been thru so much and yet their love for each other has gotten stronger and stronger. Sookie knows she loves Bill and only Bill so I can only hope that somehow the writer’s fix Bill and they can stay together for their whole lives, human or vampire. I really think that somehow Bill will become human and Sookie will lose her fae light and be human too. Anything can happen on this show and it’s always been that way.

    Bill and Sookie forever!
