True Blood sure has a lot of mysteries to unravel, whether it’s about vampires, shape shifters, maenads or whatever the hell Sookie is. But there’s another mystery that came to my attention as I went through your comments in my article last week. BuddyTV reader Dogdogdog particularly caught my interest when she posted, “i got a question that will make you all think some more… how did the queen know about sookie and bill never mentioned her… and bill never ask the queen how did she know about her… its a set up i think…that queen and bill is plotting something.”
Watching the penultimate episode of True Blood‘s second season already sparked my curiosity as to why Queen Sophie-Ann knew about Sookie without Bill ever mentioning her. But realizing that other people were thinking the same thing certainly got me thinking some more. Then BuddyTV reader Maria1023 enlightened me with the possibility that this could all be part of a conspiracy: Bill and Queen Sophie-Ann are working as a team and that Bill getting close to Sookie is all part of a greater plan.
Though this idea came from the books, I don’t really want to consider it as a spoiler since the direction of True Blood has already stirred quite far from the Charlaine Harris novels. But if there’s any truth to it, it’s a very interesting theory. Seeing the Bill we all love and adore transform into the show’s antagonist might just be the most wicked twist ever. It also opens a lot of doors Eric and Sookie’s relationship, once Sookie finds out about this.
Still, I’m having a hard time imagining Bill as a villain. If he is, maybe he’s one of those bad guys who have turned over a new leaf upon realizing that he’s fallen in love with Sookie? What do you think?
