Brian Buckner Dishes On What To Expect
Big changes are coming on True Blood, and one of the principal characters won't make it to the end of the season.
Change is in the air this season on True Blood. Rolling Stone interviewed showrunner Brian Buckner, who spilled the details on what we can expect in Season 6. The main theme Buckner sounded was that change is the name of the game. Don't worry: Bill and Sookie are still the focus of the show, but their relationship has taken a backseat.
Expect to see a more grown-up Sookie Stackhouse. Now that Anna Paquin's a mom, she is growing up in her life and is ready to take Sookie with her. In Season 6, she'll be a little less naive and a little more in tune with her wants and needs. But we'll also see a Sookie that's a little darker, according to Buckner. I think we saw this taking shape in Season 5. She's getting tired of all the supernatural shenanigans. Not that we blame her.
Bill (or Billith)
Don't think that now he's Billith, he's suddenly all bad. In fact, in the first episode, he asks Jessica to watch his back and make sure he doesn't lose control. Not that it works too well for him, but the intention is there, which means there's hope for our beloved Bill (Stephen Moyer) to return to his inherently good nature. At the beginning of Season 6, though, he's locked in an inner struggle between the Bill part of him and the Lilith part of him. It wouldn't be True Blood if the Lilith part didn't win at least a little. (We're guessing it will be a lot.)
