There was a real problem with storyline for true Blood between Episodes 9 and 11. Mainly, Sookie either thinks that Bill was arrested and taken against his will to stand trial for murdering a vampire and she is worried that things might work out badly for him and he is gone two night or she thinks he has voluntarily left her alone with a potential killer because “vampire politics are more important”
These two storyline can’t exist at the same time – as they are direct conflict to each other. They ignored this conflict in the final episode and pull the story back together but it was huge writing error.
