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!

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.

  1. I always appreciate the flashbacks.  I would like to see Bill as a family man and farmer, before he joins up to fight the Civil War.  Really, anything that the writers provide will be just fine with me.  

    Thanks for the wonderful gifs.  They bring back all sorts of memories of seasons past.

  2. I so love all the Bill flashbacks.  He looks amazing in the flashback visiting his daughter in 1910, and of course, Punk British Bill was awesome.  So many looks, so much hotness and so many wonderful stories in his lifetime.  I’m very much looking forward to the Bill-centric flashbacks for the final season.  He backstory is fascinating.
