'True Blood' Shocker: An 'Erotic Connection' Will Transpire Between Sam And Bill

With Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgård), Tara Thornton (Rutina Wesley), Jason Stackhouse (Ryan
Kwanten) and Lafayette Reynolds (Nelsan Ellis) all getting new love interests this season, it's not unreasonable to wonder where the romantic action is heading for less-discussed characters like vampire Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) and shape-shifter Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell).

As it turns out, however, there is romance in the future for both characters ... possibly with each other. "True Blood" creator Alan Ball spoke with Entertainment Weekly to reveal that an "erotic connection" is in the works for Sam and Bill, two of Sookie's most prominent suitors.

According to Alan, the reasons for the newfound chemistry stem from Bill's season two decision to heal Sam with a healthy dose of his own vampire blood. As a result, a connection between the two characters arises, one that is "not just any connection, but an erotic connection."

The specifics of the new relationship between the characters and how far it will actually go remains unknown at this time, but Alan's words are certainly provocative nonetheless.

Alan was more forthcoming when talking about the other major same-sex couple in "True Blood" season three — namely the aforementioned Lafayette and his new boyfriend Jesus (Kevin Alejandro).

"[Lafayette] is very guarded and Jesus is a guy [is] willing to knock down some of those guards," said Ball. "[Though] it's not an easy relationship, they have a lot in common. They're both shamans of sorts, healers, so there's a reason they get brought together."

You know AB is so twisted,Bill had a
connection with Lorena,maybe she dies
and Sookie still leaves Bill.

I have no problem seeing my #1 man Bill and my #2 man Sam together in a sexy dream or something. My only disappointment now will be if it does not happen.

I had to cackle out loud at this. I'm figuring it's going to be Sam having hot dreams about Bill. At least that's the mythology they have created. But then, they are not very consistent about sticking to their own plot lines. Should be interesting.

Sharon i have to agree,for them to be good writers,they are not consistent,but do have to say they
can write some crazy story lines.
Can't wait to see how this one will
play out.Could be dreams for sure.

I think you guys are great !

I just read this here first! Thanks Dallas for keeping me up to date. All I can say is: I CAN'T WAIT!! I do think this will play out more with funny looks between them with Sam having "funny dreams". Maybe he's gonna fantasize about a ménage a trois with Sookie? Who knows. Regardless, I hope Sam's apron is involved, too. :)

I agree it will be a dream, although anything is possible. I think when we see it happening, it won't look like a dream though. It will look real until he wakes up. Then he looks around and wonders why he had a dream like that and why he enjoyed it so much and now he wonders if he's becoming gay. This is his "who am I, what am I" contribution to the S3 theme question.
