True Blood Season 3 Spoiler: Kidnap Scoop From TV Guide

October 14, 2009 by  

Bill Compton and Sookie StackhouseWARNING:  SEASON 3 SPOILERS!

TV Guide‘s Mickey O’Connor has some juicy information straight from Alan Ball for True Blood fans regarding Bill Compton‘s (Stephen Moyer) kidnapping.  In the Mega Buzz Q&A, viewer Dyan asks how long it will take in Season 3 before we discover who took Vampire Bill.  Mickey says:

“We will discover who has Bill right off the bat in Season 3, but it’s going to take the people on the show a little bit longer to find out,” executive producer Alan Ball tells us. Sookie will even consider the possibility that he left of his own volition. “It’s not easy for her,” Ball says. “She feels really bad because she’s not sure whether he just left because he was upset because she didn’t say yes right off the bat. But in her heart she believes he was taken and she doesn’t know who took him. She’s going to fight to find him.”

Sounds like poor Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) is in for a tough time next season.  Knowing this information, however, still leaves so many unanswered questions for fans.  Will she stay true to Bill until she finds him?  Will this inner conflict drive Sookie closer to or further away from Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgård)?  Will she withdraw from romance altogether?

And who is the kidnapper? My list of suspects includes: Eric,  Steve Newlin (Michael McMillian),  Lorena (Mariana Klaveno),  Queen Sophie Ann (Evan Rachel Wood), or perhaps someone else we haven’t even met yet. Having read all the books, I think that I know the answer, but Alan Ball likes to keep the audience guessing, so it’s possible that all bets are off.  I can’t wait to see what happens next.

What are your theories on Bill‘s disappearance and the way this event will affect Sookie throughout the rest of the season?  Sound off in the comments area below.
