Happy Tuesday, Fangbangers! Guess what? It’s time for yet another installment of HBO’s Drop of True Blood minisode series! (Just in case you didn’t figure that out from reading the title to this post . . .) This minisode stars none-other-than Bon Temps very own, recently kidnapped, Vampire Bill!
“Oh wow!” You say.
“Is he OK?” You wonder.
“Where are they keeping him? Is he being tortured?” You cry out, in anguish.
Unfortunately, I don’t know the answer to ANY of these questions. And watching this clip won’t exactly help YOU to answer them either. After all, this “mini” takes place in Vampire Bill’s house. And, in it, he’s just hanging out in his bathrobe, looking happy as a clam.
(Why do people always say that? Happy as a clam . . . Do YOU know any happy clams? Because if I was a clam, I think I’d be pretty friggin miserable ALL THE TIME . . . but that’s just me.)
But enough about clams . . . . back to the clip. It pretty obviously takes place before the Season 2 finale. Seeing as, during that episode, SOMEONE . . . you know . . . bound up Vampire Bill, gagged him, and dragged him away . . . presumably never to be seen until Season 3 AGAIN!
I’m thinking that — like the Sookie, Tara, and Lafayette scene that I posted here a few weeks ago — this minisode is yet another example of a “deleted scene” from Season 2. In it, a strange woman arrives at Vampire Bill’s home, late at night. And she has something HE wants . . . The question is, how far is he willing to go, to get it? You’ll just have to watch and see . . .
Thanks again to ShirtlessLocke, for allowing clip embedding!
OK . . . OK . . . I’ll admit it. My post title, my intro picture, and pretty much everything I wrote here, up until I embedded the YouTube clip, were all a bit misleading. But honestly, I don’t think ANYONE would have clicked on the link to this post, if I called it “Vampire Bill Scams a Cheap Engagement Ring Off Some Old Horny Broad.” Can you blame me for trying to spice things up a bit?
Now, those of you who have read my previous True Blood posts, already know that I have a tendency to be a bit down on our Fangy Friend, Mister Bill, here . . .
Now, don’t get me wrong! It’s not that I don’t like Vampire Bill! I DO! It’s just that he’s not . . . this guy . . .
. . . or this guy . . .
. . . or THESE guys . . .
. . . who, despite being on an ENTIRELY different show, still manage to surpass our pal, Bill, in the hot brooding vampire department.
That being said, major props to Stephen Moyer for inserting a nice bit of humor into this scene, and making Vampire Bill just a bit more likeable. Having watched this clip, I think we all gained a bit more insight into what truly makes Vampire Bill tick . . .
For example, we learned that he is FABULOUS bargain hunter! Bill Compton would be a great guy to bring along with you, if you were . . . say . . . heading to your local flea market (assuming, of course, that your “local flea market” keeps night hours . . .).
“Hey, would someone close the shades, please! I’m starting to decay . . .”
In this “important” scene, Bill also proved himself to be a loyal lover to Sookie.
Then again, I’d probably be a bit more impressed with his manly “restraint,” had his temptress not borne such a resemblance to my best friend’s grandmother . . .
Now Granny, I meant that in the nicest way possible! There’s no need to get all riled up! Did you forget to take your meds again?
Tune in next week for the FINAL minisode of the Drop of True Blood Series. After that . . . Next stop SEASON 3!
Heck! Even Josh Holloway is excited! And this isn’t even HIS show!
Just in case you’ve missed any of the True Blood goodies previously posted on this site, you can catch the extended promo for Season 3 of True Blood here. (Don’t forget to read the comment section. There, my blogging buddy, Lola (of Lovely Entropy fame), posted a FABULOUS True Blood sneak peak, one that will allow you to get a glimpse of what Vampire Eric looks like, after having endured SIX HOURS of nonstop sex!
Here’s a hint of what you might see . . .
