I’m a ‘what if’ fan so for purposes of this story I went back to Dead Until Dark…
- What if Bill hadn’t had the chance to scare Sookie in regards to Eric?
- What if Eric hadn’t tried to influence her from his throne?
- What if Eric hadn’t kicked that fangbanger, causing the feeding/raid incident?
…for me the answer is simple. Sookie would have been just as relaxed and unfazed as she had been when she met Bill.
…She might have treated Eric like ‘just another guy’.
One simple act could have saved a lot of time and tears.
Perhaps, timing really is everything.
