Bill may have been sent by the Queen to seduce Sookie but instead Bill is trapped by love

I think in the True Blood series Alan Ball makes it very clear in this scene that Bill is NO longer motivated by edicts, duty, lust or blood. He truly loves Sookie ....

I think it's important that this follows his memories of his human family, his loss of them as well as the memories of his "turning" and relationship to Lorena.

In the books, Bill tells Sookie he did NOT want to even pretend to have a relationship with a human woman because he thought that it degraded him. The moment Bill's motivation changed is NOT as clear in the books as it seems to be in the series.

But his love for Sookie has become a trap for him as he later says to her on bk 8 " I did what I had been told to do by my queen. In so doing, I fell into a trap I couldn’t escape. I still can’t.”

I think Tara and Lafayette discussion cinches the scene.

T-Do you think they are capable of loving a person?
L- Who knows what they are capable of ?

What I want to know is why can't Bill seem to get out of his "sleeping place" to save Sookie in this episode, but he could in the finale episode? It looks like he is physically unable to get out to save her here in this clip, but in the finale, he did? I don't get it.

maybe sokkie's blood made him stronger? (maybe just a gap)

well, at least he didn't seduce I remember she went to him. she choose the relationship in the show is not based on a lie..since she has been the aggressor through the whole show...she has made every move first.
