Civil War Flashbacks are in store for True Blood Season 7

spoiler-s7squareMost True Blood fans love the flashbacks that the show has had which give us glimpses into the past of the characters. There have been several Civil War flashbacks and in the final season of True Blood we learn that there is to be another Bill Compton flashback to when he was a human.

Bill will be going back to 1862 during the time of the Civil War and will clash with others around him concerning his thoughts on the ensuing war. Bill was turned into a vampire at the age of 30 in 1865, three years after the upcoming flashback.


But what does Bill’s 1862 flashback have to do with the drama in Season 7? With humans still waging a war on vampires and the Hep-V virus spreading, it’s possible that Bill could be looking to the past to solve some of the current problems plaguing Bon Temps. Another theory? The vampire can be thinking back to some of his regrets. Bill will be dealing with another war in the present as the threat of Hep V spreads. Moyer previously said that vampires and humans would be looking out for each other in final season of the show, as Enstars previously reported.

Bill and Sam [Sam Trammell] got together and kind of came up with this idea that each human should have their own vampire protecting them, so that’s another theme that we will follow throughout the season,” Moyer revealed.

There will a lot of human-vampire interaction in the final season of True Blood. The show is reportedly going back to the simplicity of the first season with humans and vampires coexisting in Bon Temps rather than branching off into many storylines.

Everyone’s going to come under the umbrella of that main story. These are complicated relationships now because they’re feeding – it’s not necessarily sex, but things get confused sometimes, especially in vampires’ minds.

As we previously reported, “True Blood” was looking to cast a 5-year-old Sarah Compton, Bill’s daughter with his wife Caroline. Sarah Compton will reportedly be seen in the 1862 flashback, but will not have a speaking role.

True Blood season 7 premieres in summer 2014 on HBO, though the network has not yet announced a premiere date.

    Happily anticipating the Civil War flashback. I’m not sure how it will play into this final season, but that’s all right. I eagerly await the telling.

      You have to click on the images in our post and go to Gettyimages. Once there the videos should play. The videos require a Quicktime plugin.

    Some, if not all, of the flashbacks have really given us insight into Bill’s character, how he was raised and turned and how he is the “vampire with a soul” still. I am SO looking forward to these.

    hurray! time is going by and it’s almost here!
