A cheer went up in my living room when Bill Compton finally met the true death at the end of season 5. But as with all things 'True Blood' you learn to expect the unexpected.
Vampire Bill Compton started out in season 1 as the reason we all watched 'True Blood.' He was sexy, romantic, and never hesitated to show off his humanity, even though as a vampire he was technically already dead.
But in season 5, Bill Compton found vampire religion and quickly took a turn for the worse. He ditched Sookie and pursued a career in vampire politics with the Vampire Authority's American Vampire League (AVL).
If there is one thing that seems to bring out the worst in vampires it's mixing politics and religion.
Much to the dismay of many, the King of Louisiana area 5-turned AVL Chancellor appeared to meet the true death with an overdose drink of the blood of Lilith, the god of the vampires.
However, after melting into a true death puddle of blood on the floor of his suite at the AVL, Bill Compton resurrected himself as an even more evil version of the religious fanatic he evolved into in season 5. This can only mean one thing. Bill Compton will return in season 6.
There was one bright spot in the dead vampire arena. The 3000 year old, fairy blood obsessed vampire Russell Edgington, was staked by Eric Northman, effectively ending the rein of True Blood's resident evil vampire.
Edgington had to meet the true death, so the no-longer-likable Bill Compton could fill his malicious shoes in season 6.
For creatures who are supposed to be immortal, piles of them ended up dead in the Sunday night season finale - some good, some bad.
At this point, Sookie seems destined to end up with Eric. Lets keep our fingers crossed and hope she is forever done with Vampire Bill, who is now a power-crazed religious fanatic politician. If it wasn't about vampires, 'True Blood' could almost be called a reality show in 2012.
