True Blood Season 6 Finale: Did Sookie Make the Right Choice With Alcide?
Last Sunday's episode of HBO's True Blood finally gave us some Eric Northman July 6 Showrunner Brian Buckner also opened up about Sookie's relationship status and what he thinks about her and Alcide. Throughout True Blood's six seasons, a lot has changed, but one thing remains constant: Sookie Stackhouse is irresistible. From day one, she's. Bill. Eric. Alcide. Benlow. Sam. Sookie's list of suitors on True Blood The Season 6 finale took us six months beyond the death of Warlow Sookie from Warlow, we thought they'd rekindle the relationship that started it all.
Still, the tease of their relationship was a smart move. What wasn't good for True Blood is that they got back together in season 4. They were never good together. In fact, their relationship hurt both of their characters. Debbie's jealousy of Sookie was the least of their issues. She wanted kids, while he didn't.
She was engaged and still didn't like Alcide with Sookie. Then, the werewolves got back together when she cleaned up her act and was sober. They still weren't good together and it still wasn't going to work out.
The only saving grace was that their relationship ended before Debbie met her bloody fate. He was in the middle of withdrawal from V, as he later admitted.
However, she forgave him. They managed to get past that and several other obstacles. Her sons posted a photo of him in her bed on Facebook. He had four half-fae children though Jessica ended the lives of three of them. Holly was even the midwife while the mother of his children gave birth. Even though they had their problems, they were a couple you wanted to see make things work. You wanted them to be together because their drama wasn't nearly as bad as most of Sookie's relationships. In the series finale flash forward, they were both at Sookie's Thanksgiving dinner and were happy together.
However, there was too much stacked against them for it to work.
It hurt the show when it returned to their relationship, especially since it wasn't going to last. First, there was Jessica's relationship with Hoyt and Hoyt and Jason being best friends. It's not a good sign when someone moves to Alaska and asks a vampire to take away all his memories of his ex and best friend.
Then there was Jason and Jessica getting together in the final season when it ended with her marrying Hoyt. Was that just to give those who wanted Jason and Jessica to be together one last bit of hope?
This is not just because it moved him away from his unrequited crush on Sookie, though. Like all TV couples, they had their obstacles. His brother once posed as him to be with her. She tried to push him away so he didn't have to deal with her ex and daughter's father.
However, he refused to let her. Instead, series' highlights for Sam's character definitely included seeing him with Luna and with her daughter, Emma. Sadly, they both had to do some drastic things to rescue Emma. Luna's actions skinwalking as Steve Newlin ended up costing her her life, which she had known was a risk.

However, it was clear that she still had feelings for Alcide when they crossed paths and she saw Sookie. Debbie and Cooter were never a relationship that was going to go the distance.
They were addicted to V and weren't exactly nice people together or apart. Despite Debbie initially wanting to hunt Alcide down after he ended Cooter's life, the exes got back together. Debbie's time with Cooter didn't make her a better person or werewolf. It didn't even matter in the next season.
There was no real reason for it to have happened, other than to delay her and Alcide's reunion and then end.
However, he showed that he was a good guy or rather, vampire. He refused to go along with one of the studies conducted there.
