Bill fans out there are wondering if Bill Compton and Sookie Stackhouse will have a happy ending by the time that True Blood wraps up at the end of August. Below Stephen Moyer talks about what might happen to their relationship:
Last year Bill Compton himself, Stephen Moyer, spoke with TV Line about the new season. Moyer told the publication that Bill might not be as big of A-hole this time around:
“I think that it’s really hard. The characters can’t [always] be who the audience — or the actor — wants them to be at all times. That would be dull. A bunch of people loved Bill and Sookie together, but a whole bunch of people didn’t. So you can’t just please this bunch or that bunch. As [series creator] Alan Ball once said, ‘I’m not interested in people being happy.’ And I’ve always said, as soon as you see one of our couples get together, you know [they’re] f**ed. As soon as Hoyt and Jessica got together I was like ‘No! They’re going to f**ing kill this, I know they are!” Because [that relationship] was so beautiful… I loved playing [Bill]. I love him. Whether there were things that I feel were done well or badly or right or brilliantly, I love him.”
Stephen went on to talk about the possibility of Bill and Sookie having a happy ending together:
I don’t know whether they can be, given everything that’s happened between them. What Bill did was open up something inside her that she had never had before. He was the key to a new world for her. And maybe that’s all he was supposed to be–a window into that world. I don’t think that there is a right or wrong answer. I think a bunch of people would be happy if that was the story and a bunch of people would be pissed off if that was the story. I don’t read that s**t, so I don’t care, ultimately. All I want to do is do the show and have fun doing it.
Do you want to see Bill and Sookie live happily every after?
