SPOILERS LOOK AWAY!
Now I haven't read the books, even though usually I absolutely preach that the book is always better than the movie/show... but in this case, I've found that TV series is much better and more extensive than what I have read of that books. And I care more the TV series and wouldn't want the books to ruin the show for me, (isn't that backwards; but that's just how good I think the show is) so all my theories are based on what I think the show is doing, not what I know from the book series.
Everyone is FREAKING OUT about the end of tonight's episode of True Blood because seemingly, Bill cheated on Sookie with Lorena... however I have a different view of this. I really don't think that Bill did it on his own. I believe that he was, in some way, forced into it because of Lorena's power over Bill.
Here are my argument points for this.
-Even though Lorena "released" Bill, she still had control to a degree over him in Dallas. So it wouldn't seem too far out there to believe that she still has some kind of sway over him now. She is his maker and that can never be undone even though he has been released.
- Vampires seem to become physically vulnerable when they are emotionally weak. For example, Eric was dealt a pretty rough blow from Bill when he was depressed about Godric. I don't know if this is just because Vamps heal more easily than humans, so when they feel sad they don't care to try to fight back, or if they just don't have the motivation, but it seems that emotional vulnerability usually makes them seem physically vulnerable. Godric said to Eric "A Vampire isn't subject to emotions. He dominates them." And if he doesn't dominate them... perhaps he will become weak. Because of this, it may not be far out to believe that because Bill was so emotionally vulnerable at the time, he could not fight off Lorena's power, which is why he did what he did.
-He was screaming in agony and trying to inflict pain and disfigure Lorena in the middle ("kill" her, or feel as though he is, even though she can't be killed). It seemed like he was fighting against two parts of himself, the part that was controlled and the part that didn't want to do it in the first place!
Now obviously I am just clinging to what I hope is true for Bill since I love him so much and don't want to ever believe that he could ever hurt or betray Sookie.... but I'd like to think that I have SOME weight in my argument... what do you guys think?
BE GENTLE, haha!
BOOK SPOILER? I understand that apparently some say Bill is trying to push Sookie away to protect her... so doesn't that just mean that she'll go be with ANOTHER vampire (Eric)? And therefore he would have done that for no reason since the same "danger" would be present in her new relationship? That's dumb. And very Twilight: New Moon ish... ick.
Either way... The TV show HAS deviated from the books on numerous occasions... it is possible that it will do something different here as well to keep us guessing. What are some of your ideas about this situation? Where do you believe the story will go next?
