True Blood’s Lauren Bowles Doesn’t Care Who Sookie Ends Up With
August 9, 2014 by Rachel Tsoumbakos
It’s More About Sookie Stackhouse’s Journey Than Her Destination:
By far the hottest subject for HBO’s True Blood Season 7 is who Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) will end in at the season finale. While for Team Alcide fans, it is already a race lost for the werewolf (played by Joe Manganiello), there are still two other contenders on the table:
- Team Bill
- Team Eric
After watching Episode 7 (entitled May Be the Last Time), fans could be lead to believe it will be a happily ever after with Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer). But Team Eric [Northman (played by Alexander Skarsgard)] are counteracting that claim to Sookie’s affections with the fact that there are still three more episodes left and that is a long time in the Sookieverse for things to go horribly wrong for Sookie and Bill!
However, for Lauren Bowles (who plays Merlotte’s waitress and resident wiccan, Holly Cleary) she’s all for Team Sookie:
You know what? I’m Team Sookie… I’m a card-carrying feminist and I think ultimately whether you pair off or not or who you pair off with [doesn’t matter]. Ultimately everyone’s relationship with themselves is at the core for all of us to figure out, as individuals living in this world and with these characters like [Sookie]. And I think so often on shows like this everyone’s focused on the answer: ‘Which one?’ ‘Who will she end up with?’ And to me, it’s just more interesting to sort of see how they all settle in with themselves.
