Though its primary currency is death, True Blood has always focused more on beginnings than endings, a theme that continued through Sunday’s series finale. Before closing the coffin on Bon Temps, Louisiana — a town whose residents have proven as resilient as they are mentally off-balance — there were more than a few loose ends to tie up. And tied they were, mostly in the form of matrimonial knots. Bill Compton a.k.a. Vampire Bill a.k.a (the former) Billith a.k.a. the center of Sookie’s myriad affections is dying of Hepatitis V. Though a cure exists, in the literal form of Sarah Newlin/”New Me” — yes, the same woman who disseminated the virus in the first place — Bill chooses not to cure himself. His reasoning is as simple as it is selfless. To defang his relationship with Sookie and allow her to move on with a real life he must meet the true death. Why anyone would bring children into to the apocalyptic town remains a mystery.
