But in fact Eric spent time and money taking care of her house, for example, just to make sure someone was taking care of her things while she was away. IMO, he was telling the truth here, course it was convenient to tell this in front of his rival but that’s how he is :)
And as always, Bill was lying. He wasn’t empty while Sookie was gone. He was full of plenty of women.
How in the heck does someone come up with Eric is lying? Let’s see, Jason sold her house and packed her stuff away, and Sookie actually asks him how he could have given up on her. Tara moved away, and Sam and Lafayette moved on with their lives. Then there’s Bill who says that he thought she was dead and so clearly moved on… as Sookie said, “you’ve been running around sticking your fangs and who knows what else into every girl in town”.
Meanwhile, Eric buys her house when it comes up for sale. It’s evident that he’s put his feelers out to let him know of any news in Bon Temp that has to do with Sookie. Eric does this from Shreveport, yet Bill, who lives right next door, does nothing. (that would be because he had given up on her). Eric then goes to all of the trouble and expense to painstakingly restore her home to it’s former self — not in a way that he would like, but rather in a way that she would like. If he had given up on her then he would have remodeled to his liking, not hers.
I don’t think those who did give up on her should be slapped with any judgments. Twelve and a half months is a long time for someone to just disappear. It makes sense that there comes a time when there’s nowhere else to look and nothing more to do, but move on with your own life. That said, it speaks volumes that Eric did none of that. He had faith she was alive. He knew she would return and when she did, he wanted her home to be there in the shape it was before the maenad event. He certainly behaved badly once she did return, but that doesn’t negate the fact that he’s telling the truth here.
There is no way Bill would have even attempted this had he not thought that Sookie’s blood would help protect him. Without it, he knew he would have been a crispy critter by the time he left the porch. We saw how quickly Beulah caught on fire. She didn’t make it out of her front yard.
This was his first test of the efficacy of Sookie’s blood as a sunscreen. When Tara kicked him out of Alcide’s truck in season 3, he already knew it wouldn’t last and that he’d have to find cover.
This Bill in no way resembles this Bill. Bill is a fraud. He whipped out his “humanity” and his “southern gentleman” charms in order to seduce an innocent young girl so that he could procure her for his Queen. Bill is who he needs to be at any given moment.
The same way he went from this to this ….all in one night when he left Sookie (his mark) to go to the Queen (his employer). Costume on, costume off.
Bill Minisode. Or better known as I am a douche for getting my girlfriend’s engagement ring for cost.
Complete manipulation.He knew his half-nakedness was having an effect on her. She even asks if he’s going to get dressed, but he declines. He sits extremely close to her on the couch and invades in personal space. Then, typically Bill, he rationalizes his thievery by blaming the woman for succumbing to his seduction. All done under the disguise of the honorable southern gentleman….blech.
Spending too much time obsessing about all things True Blood, Eric Northman, Eric and Sookie, and every now and then something that strikes my fancy. I do think Alexander Skarsgard is just wonderful and my blog is filled with his lovely face; however, I only post pics that are taken in the course of his work, or those he poses for...no stalky paparrazi pics...sorry.:)
Very few gifs and pics are my own. I bow to the wonderful people who make them
and say Thanks! :)
