    @ladybug:
    I think he must have been there at least some of the time, or she wouldn’t have come home to a stash of blood in her fridge. To me, that said that he must have spent some nights there, if he would keep food around.

    @Canuck:
    It’s possible I suppose, but he did heal people he’d fed on with his blood as we know from his flashbacks. Wouldn’t his blood then be in there system, even if only a couple drops. He did tell Sookie that was all it took, when Eric first gave her his blood in Dallas.

    @Camille: I’ll admit yet again to gast forwarding through much of what doesn’t interest me, and I don’t remembe seeing the bits where Bill heals people. But I would also think that if you feed someone your blood once and they die of old age 40 years later, you might not experience anything when it happens. As opposed to someone having lots of your blood more than once and then vanishing within a year without leaving a body or a trace of a struggle. Logically, from the no panic or fear being transmitted, one would assume nothing was forced. Then, no body, blood or smell of anything violent (although it’s certainly possible that the smell of Fairy was present in the cemetry for a while after they were there), no sudden illness or malaise coupled with no body and the disappearance of the bond… Someone who knows about Faery and how it works might be better placed to understand that Sookie was likely taken there than someone like Bill with no more experience with Faeries than Sookie.

    @Camille: I’m trying to remember, but I think part of that with Eric needing so little blood to be able ‘track’ Sookie was due to the age thing, 1000 years old provides pretty potent blood.

    Camille Says:

    @Canuck:
    It’s possible. Didn’t Eric only give her his blood the one time though, before she got back I mean? Other than Dallas, has she ever had Eric’s blood. I don’t think she has. So you’d think Bill would know more than Eric would, as Sookie would have only had a minute amount of Eric’s blood.

    @ladybug:
    True enough. I just don’t think AB has the memory or logic to make sure that’s a part of the storyline. He’s made so many consistency errors through the seasons, that I find it hard to believe he would have considered that point. He certainly didn’t have Sookie question it, nor was any type of explanation offered as to why Bill would have so completely moved on and thought she was dead, while Eric waited for her. Unless they were trying to be witty and give us a glimpse into the real character behind Eric and Bill, but I don’t give AB that much credit either.

    @Camille: I’ll throw out something that was posted on a TB site during the season: Bill’s behavior was in part to protect Sookie from the AVL/Nan, should Sookie reappear. If Bill was all emo and moping over her it would draw unwanted attention to her. So, if he’s all ‘it’s good to be the king!’ and sleeping around and not seen to be concerned over Sookie’s disappearance, and reappearance, it would help prevent interest into what is it about this human that has Eric and Bill all hot and bothered.
    Who knows.

    That could be, though he sure moved onto Portia quite fast even after Sookie returned, but he still had the gall to be mad at her for Eric. He acted like a douche there, trying to kill Eric off. Bill has tried to kill Eric off more than once, and it bothers me that Sookie doesn’t ever notice this or question it. Like Eric comes and says the King showed him mercy and she’s all, oh sweet. Pfffffff!

    Holy crap, ok I don’t know why that posted 4 times. Sorry guys, stupid JJ!

    @Camille: That annoyed me too.

    Canuck Says:

    @ladybug: It looked to me like he thought she was dead. Even the look on their faces when they woke up when she landed back in the cemetery, bill looked surprised, Eric didn’t. Plus I would think that had he had any inkling that she wasn’t dead, he would have bought her house instead of Eric so that when she came back he could have played the hero.

    I am still trying to figure out why AB favors the Bill character, we really have been patient about it, but enough is enough. The way AB has handled the wonderful friendship between Sookie and Pam has been destroyed and the worst was how could he handle the end when Sookie completely devasted Eric.

    Bill has betrayed her time and time again, but Eric has never lied to her once (unless you count the blood incidenrt, that is one of my favorite Eric moments), and for her to walk out on him like she did at the end was disgusting; watch Eric will be the first to help her with Tara.

    I have always enjoyed everything AB has done, but I have to admit that he signed a new contract where he will step away from TB and go onto other HBO projects He is not allowing AS to act to his complete.

    Camille Says:

    @Canuck:
    I think he thought she was dead. He told her that at her house, before anyone was around and he wouldn’t really need to do that if he was protecting her from the AVL because nobody was around other than Jason. Jason was inside the house at the time, and Andy didn’t show up until later. I think the only reason Eric got there after Bill was because he’d been resting at Fangtasia, otherwise he would have been there first. Maybe AB is really setting Eric up to be the guy who always feels Sookie and truly loves her, but it’s hard to believe when he just keeps messing up so badly with their storyline. Then again, I think Sookie is an idiot for being soft on Bill like 10 seconds after getting back from Faery where she thinks she’s only been for like 15 minutes. Moron.

  15. 165
    Canuck Says:

    @Camille: That to me is another incident where AB shows his dislike of women. No way that feisty Sookie, the one who slapped Eric, would suddenly get all soft and mushy for someone who did to her what Bill did, within an hour or two of finding out. And then later, she asks Bill to FORGIVE her????

    As for the blood in the fridge, I’m trying to remember when she found it. It seems to me that it wasn’t until the next day once she got back from shopping, right after she found the microwave delivered onto her kitchen counter, both probably by his day person. I kind of took the two together as Eric making the point that it was his house and that she should expect him to drop by whenever he felt like it. I could be remembering the timing wrong though.

    ladybug Says:

    @Camille: I’ll have to go back to the screens shots and look, but in the shots where Bill and Eric woke when Sookie came back from Fairlyand, weren’t the pillows that Eric was on the same as in his cubby at Sookie’s?

  17. 167
    Canuck Says:

    @ladybug: Ah, found them. No they aren’t the same pillows. But his bed/couch thingy when he wakes looks an awful lot like the one in Edward Cullen’s room in Twilight, only in dark grey, LOL.

    Camille Says:

    @Canuck:
    She does find it after she goes shopping. I just assumed it had been there from before, and she didn’t see it because she hadn’t gone in the fridge after getting him at first. She basically went to her house and just sat there until Jason got there, and then she was talking with him until the two vamps showed up. I think it was there from before. Sookie had a microwave prior to that, so I think Eric was just buying her a new one.

  19. 169
    Canuck Says:

    @Camille: But she didn’t go shopping until the next day. You would think that normally, she would have at least opened the fridge and cupboards either that night or in the morning on the off chance there would have been something in there to eat, even if she would assume there wasn’t. I would have at any rate. Funny how the same scene can be taken completely differently.

  20. 170
    Camille Says:

    @Canuck:
    See and I wouldn’t have after being told that I’d been gone for a year. I would assume there wouldn’t have been any food and probably just gone out to eat because I was too tired to get groceries. The cupboards maybe, but the fridge no, because it would be strange to keep anything in there when you’re gone for a year. I would have assumed that Jason would have cleaned it out.

    LOL it is funny the different things people notice. I guess that’s the fun part of having shows not explain everything.

  21. 171
    Canuck Says:

    @Camille: It wasn’t so much the amount of blood she’d had as the amount of experience that each of the Vamps might have had in interpreting the vanishing of the link, and the amount of knowledge of the other possibilities than death that might cause the link to disappear suddenly. I find it interesting that Bill had actually managed to visit Faery yet it didn’t occur to him until she came back that she may have gone there, while Eric has never been there as far as we know, yet he seemed to have understood that she went somewhere else out of reach rather than having died.

  22. 172
    Canuck Says:

    @mforman: He probably identifies with the brown haired Beta male who wants to be an Alpha.

  23. 173
    Canuck Says:

    @Camille: I’d have absolutely beeb hunting for coffee, if nothing else, lol!

  24. 174
    Canuck Says:

    @ladybug: More potent certainly, remember when she was attacked by the Maenad and he commented to Bill to allow him because his was stronger?

    mforman Says:

    I really hope that AB doesn’t destroy the upcoming season. When Sookie made that ridiculous speech to Bill on the last episode, I was in shock, but then when she started to talk to Eric, I couldn’t believe how nasty she came off, I was really hoping that she would say they should give themselves a try.

    Seriously look at all that Eric has done for her and never told her, all Bill has done is use and betray her. The Sookie in the books is such a strong character, why has AB decided to make her portrayed, as such a weakling.

    I wonder if that is why it took them so long to finish shooting the past season, we all known that the big shots at HBO got inolved, because it was truly interesting how they released that press release about how AB’s role would be changing.

    They know what a loyal fan base TB has, look at the turn out at Comic Con had the first year TB premiered, that had never happened before for a brand new show and each year it only grows and grows, and TB always has the largest turn out, it really is amazing

    Also, the TB cast are the last ones to leave, they want want to make sure they see each fan.

    I think that is amazing
