Stephen Moyer gave us the straight talk on Bill & Sookie’s relationship in season four — and it’s not looking good.
Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) called it quits with her pale prince Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) on last summer’s True Blood finale, and it doesn’t look like they’ll be getting back together anytime soon. Or at all. “I think Bill believes in the whole ‘If you love somebody you have to set them free,’ thing” Stephen told HollywoodLife.com on June 21 at the True Blood season four premiere in Los Angeles.
“He needs to let her be the person she needs to be and not try to be so overbearing,” Stephen added. “He needs to step back!”
And it doesn’t sound like the single life will treat Bill too badly, either.
“Bachelorhood actually turns out all right for Bill,” Stephen told us. “I think he decides to enjoy it.”
Of course, Bill and Sookie’s breakup is great news for fans of a certain Nordic vampire in Bon Temps. If the fourth season of True Blood is anything like Charlaine Harris‘ fourth novel — and we suspect it will be — Sookie will be doing the dirty with Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) this year. Like, a lot. And it’ll be crazy hot.
