Season four concluded with bitter rivals Bill and Eric looking like they were on the verge of embarking on an epic bromance. Bill had accepted Eric’s fling with Sookie and hadn’t executed him when he had the chance, and Eric had sworn allegiance to his king. Then they formed an undead tag-team and took out that interfering bitch Nan and her SWAT team. Now this crime has left them in a bit of a pickle, because the Authority and American Vampire League want them executed for their handling of the Wiccan-gate crisis (even though it was Nan’s fault for not taking the threat seriously enough in the first place), and now with Nan’s death are going to be even more pissed at them. Or will they? Nan was a traitor after all, so maybe the Authority will be more forgiving? And perhaps they will take in to consideration the fact that Bill managed to save all the vampires in Louisiana (except poor Beulah Carter) from a fiery true death? And there’s always the chance that they will see what a handsome pair our boys are and think the world would be a far sexier place with them in it.
According to recent casting calls, we will finally get to meet this elusive Authority early on in season five, so it looks like Bill and Eric will have to take a little road trip together to go and confront them. Any guesses what sort of punishment will be in store for them, or will they charm the socks off of their bosses and get away scot free, high-fiving each other as they ride on out? There’s also the introduction of Eric’s vampire sister to take into account – how will she come into play, and what will her allegiance be? And let’s not forget the ancient vampire Salome, a potential villain for season five. No word yet on if she’s a member of the Authority, the AVL, or the vampire monarchy. But with two hot female vampires being introduced, and Bill and Eric having BOTH been rejected by Sookie (I know, WTF? Right?! That girl has too many options! I would work out a timeshare deal!), maybe these two new gals will be the love interests for them in season five? Or are there some other ladies in Bon Temps that could be in line for some fangy lovin’? Honestly, I hope they work their way through the entire female cast so we get to see lots of naked Bill and Eric – there was a serious lack of male nudity last season!!
So, will Bill and Eric remain buddies, or will they double cross each other? Will they continue to fight over Sookie, or will they realise they are both way too hot for her and find solace in each other’s arms? Who will be the new face of vampires in the media now that Nan is no more? Will Bill and Eric still be King and Sheriff, or will they face a demotion and a severe slap on the wrist for their witch-killing shenanigans? Let us know your theories, people!
