3.01: Arlene – “I’m sorry you fell in love with a serial killer, but honestly, who here hasn’t?”

You oughta know Arlene, since you were engaged to one.

3.02: Talbot – “I just redecorated the guest room. Wait until you see the bed…Bill, it’s marvellous! It once belonged to Countess Elizabeth Bathory, Hungary’s legendary serial killer.

Rumor has it, that she loved to torture virgins and bathe in their blood.”


Fast Facts: Elizabeth Bathory’s bloodlust was the stuff of legend. So legendary, in fact, that she is often compared to Vlad the Impaler – the historical figure upon whom Count Dracula is based.



Lurker-Bill to make his debut on True Blood?

Jennifer Thomas of has posted an article on the first three episodes of True Blood season 3.

There are a few interesting tidbits within, and you should head over there to read the full piece.

This little snippet is of particular interest.

This season’s big bad is the werewolves, which gives plenty of opportunities to introduce (sorry, going for the easy pun here) fresh meat. But the wolves also aren’t taking away from the main characters, but actually adding new dimensions to them. For example, it’s revealed that Bill might have had his eye on Sookie for much longer than normal.


This ties in nicely with the Televisionary review a few weeks back, which revealed the following:

…James Frain’s Franklin Mott…uncovers a very intriguing subplot that could change our perceptions of certain events in the series’ very early days.

Sophie-Anne’s edict? The Rattrays bashing? A bit of both?

Either way, it seems we are going to find out what Bill is up to long before Sookie does.

Thanks Freyja.

Sookeh. Ah must reveal to yew now things of which ah am loathe to speak. At naht, while yew are sleeping, ah lurk in your woods and ah listen to your excessively raucous relations with that detestable Vahking. Oh, and ah am here to seduce yew for mah Queen.


Latest Poster – Bill

Oh GOD are these things nearly done?

I feel obliged to keep posting them for the sake of consistency, but I am so bored with them I’m sitting here cross-eyed and dribbling.

And WHAT is going on with Photoshop? Couldn’t they have got a group of guys together, put ’em in period garb from the wardrobe department and taken a freaking photo, rather than attempting to paste Bill’s face on an existing one?

I know I’ve been super-critical of this year’s marketing campaign but really, this is just so disappointing from HBO.



“If there were an international butt competition, Eric would win, hands down—or cheeks up. He
would get a large, large trophy.”
~ Sookie, DTTW ~

It’s been too damn long since we’ve had some decent Skarsporn.

Go nuts.


And I’m posting these because I guess someone might find them sexy…or just funny…like I do.

But really, Alan. Of all the man-on-man you could have done?


Pennydreadful thinks Sam and Bill’s love-in might play out something like this….

Bill: I find myself strangely in the grip of a powerful homoerotic attraction to you, Mr. Merlotte. Might I call on you sometime?
Sam: (with innocent bewilderment) Call on me?
Bill: Yes, might I visit with you at your home…so that we may engage in physical congress?
Sam: (still confused) Physical congress? I’m confused…I didn’t think you vampires had the right to vote.
Bill: I was asking if we might enjoy the sweet forbidden bliss of coitus together…
Sam: Dammit, Bill…stop using all those high falutin Victorian euphemisms. Anyone would think you’ve been cryogenically frozen for the past 150 years. Now what exactly do you want?
Bill: Hot sweaty mansex in your trailer?
Sam: (pauses) Oh hell…sure why not. You can come back to my place but if you tell that I have a “lovely home” you’re going to get a nasty introduction to Mr. Stake…


Minisode #5 – Bill

Source: Taliasamara


Most of us (well, those of us paying attention) worked out that Bill acquires his assets by theft way back in season 2 when you showed us this:

Bill stole jewellery for Lorena. It isn’t a big jump for us to surmise that he probably didn’t send someone to the store to pay full price for Sookie’s engagement ring.

His basic nature hasn’t changed. Lorena said it best – “Blah, blah, blah”.

Geez, WE KNOW all of this, because you’ve been telling us for TWO DAMN SEASONS!

Can we PLEASE just get to the part where the other characters start working this out? My patience is wearing very, very thin.

Important Event #1
Bill would like to impress Sookie, her grandmother and the good folk of Bon Temps who are still a bit skeeved out by vampires. See Bill give a speech at Adele Stackhouse’s history club in front of the whole town, no less! This is a Big Deal.

He wears his Sunday best – casual, clean pressed shirt, and an inoffensive beige suit. Conservative and genteel, Bill is the very epitome of a Southern Gentleman.

Important Event #2
Bill requires an audience with his Queen, in order to secure her assistance with a pesky maenad. See Bill visit her palace, sans Sookie or the prying eyes of anyone from Bon Temps. This is a Big Deal.

He wears his Sunday best. Contemporary and stylish, Bill is the epitome of an urban metrosexual male in a black leather jacket, funky dark denim…


Damn, Bill! You look HOT! Really, you do! Especially when you swagger your fine ass down that walkway. In fact, I was so distracted by your triumphant return to your former hotness, that I didn’t even notice how completely removed from your usual clothing choices this ensemble actually is! You trickster Bill, you look nothing like the Bill Compton we know so well! You know, the one with a penchant for the slightly old fashioned in dowdy neutral tones. Jeans? Leather? You should keep it up! It’s sexy!

Important Event #3
Only 48 hours after his visit to the Queen, Bill plans to ask for his fair lady’s hand in marriage. See Bill take her to dinner and dancing at an upscale French restaurant. This is a Big Deal.

He wears his Sunday best – dark suit, crisp white shirt and a tie which is tastefully coordinated with Sookie’s dress (a deliberate choice, of course). Conservative and genteel, Bill is once again the very epitome of a Southern Gentleman.

Maybe Bill’s makeover wasn’t really working for him?

That’s the only possible explanation for this completely bizarre, out of character version of adult dress-ups…isn’t it?

“Not everyone wants to dress up and play human, Bill” – Diane (S01 – “Mine”).

Just Sayin’.

And while we’re on the subject of leather dress-ups…is anyone in the mood for a conspiracy theory?



True Blood Bus Ads

@LafayetteTB is tweeting the pic below as a new bus ad for True Blood.

Something is seriously WHACK with Eric’s forearm and hand – and if I didn’t know better I would say this was fanart made from the original cast photo.

Not sure if it’s legit or not, but the Vault have posted it so I guess we’ll see.

If it is, it sure looks like the Powers that Be have got the message loud and clear about what we want to see.


My ramblings on the Sookie Stackhouse books, and the HBO series True Blood. Everyone I know is already half crazed with my plot and character assassinations, conspiracy theories, theme explorations and general obsessing, so now I'm going to share it all with you. Spoilers and Viking worship are have been warned!
