Why Didn’t Sookie & Alcide “Do It” in Season 5?

Why Didn’t Sookie & Alcide “Do It” in Season 5?

Early in Season 5, it sure looked like Sookie and Alcide would “get it on,” however just as we thought we would get to see the much talked about scene between the two, it didn’t happen.  Not only was Sookie not able to continue as she had a slight accident because of all the drinking she did that night, but Eric and Bill made an appearance just as at that moment.

Now, TVLine has asked Alan Ball about it and here’s what he said:

“The decision to not do it this season [came about because] every single season, it’s been all about Sookie falling in love with this person or that person,” exiting showrunner Alan Ball tells TVLine. “It seemed like she had enough on her plate this season to not just [say], ‘Okay, now Sookie’s gonna fall in love with Alcide!’”

So that’s… it? The wolfman covers up his ex-girlfriend’s murder for her, she pukes on him, and that’s… it?

“No, no, no, Ball is quick to reassure.  That doesn’t mean that that door is closed,” he insists. Or at least it isn’t locked. “All of these supernatural guys in town carry a big torch for Sookie – even Eric, who doesn’t want to admit it.”

    Sookie and Alcide may get to it yet. There’s all of Season 6 for them to find their way back to one another. I was happy Sookie didn’t have a romantic entanglement in S 5. She had enough on her plate without that.

    I would like to see Alcide and Rikki continue as a couple. Their love scene was HOT, and I think they’re a good match.

    Because they have no sexual chemistry either! It felt forced just like Sookie and Eric felt forced. Face it….the only men she has any real chemistry with is Bill or Sam. I mean, if she can’t be with Bill I think Sam would be good for her.

    JFC, what is it with these tv people. Why does the main female always have to act like an idiot and fall in love with every male character that is handsome? Don’t they know that we are adults and we want to see an adult relationship (Bill/Sookie of course) and not Sookie going from man to man. It just makes her look like a slut and/or stupid and flighty.

    Damn it AB and writers, forget Alcide and Eric, they are yesterday’s news, get Bill and Sookie back together, Anna and Stephen have the best and hottest chemistry of any couple on the show, start using what you have and stop forcing Sookie into worthless sexual relationships.

    LOL these comments are so funny.. Yeah Anna and Steven are together in real life but who wants to see a married couple on tv in a relationship?? NOT ME!! Look back at season 2 and 3 when things really started to heat up between Sookie and Eric… And if you think there is no chemistry between Sookie and Alcide, your blind! even before they had anything there was something!!

    If they want an audience to believe she couldn’t choose between Eric and Bill because she loved them then they couldn’t have her fall for Alcide a few days later, it would take it too far. Plus she can read his mind and thats a deal breaker for Sookie in terms of a relationship. Alcide was quick enough to jump into bed with the wolf so he doesn’t seem to upset by it and the vomiting lol
