True Blood may have just wrapped, but that won't stop people imagining where the story could have gone - least of all the cast themselves.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, showrunner Brian Bruckner and the cast members talked about what they would have liked to see in the show's seven season run.
More of Alcide + Emma
While Joe Manganiello was okay with Alcide being killed off, he says he wanted the relationship between him and Emma to get more airtime:
She was orphaned because of Alcide. Alcide never wanted to have kids, so it would have been interesting to see him burning off the karma of putting her into a parentless atmosphere. it would have been an opportunity to see a warm, paternal side of him in the midst of dealing with monsters in the wolfpack.
We learnt about Bill's human life in season seven, but Stephen Moyer wanted to see more of Bill's vampire past, and especially why he and Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) were enemies.
I had always wanted for us to see a flashback to that, and so that Alex and I got a chance to do more flashbacks together.
The Logistics of Living With Vamps
Deborah Ann Woll, who played Jessica, always pondered the specifics of the show's culture:
You’ll see these scenes with people in broken-down trailers but with chains and chains of silver. Is that because the value’s gone down, are they stockpiling it? Could you go to a vampire to get glamoured to quit smoking? What about the family drama of a human aging and a vampire staying the same?
Showrunner Brian Bruckner admitted that he wanted to include more of Lafayette's life, but that his character was far less compelling when he found happiness:
I don’t know what the scenes would be if we just did scenes of [Lafayette and James] happy together. I’m thrilled we got Lafayette true love, but it sort of peaked in [episode] 6 or so. There was closure in that character.
Nathan Parsons wanted to know more about where his character came from.
It would have been fun to go back to the '70s a bit, to go back to the war going on and this hippie love child standing against it, the draft dodger, and how he paid for it.
Is it me or should a True Blood + That '70s Show crossover definitely happen?
