On Tuesday, May 7, Charlaine Harris will be releasing her final book in the Sookie Stackhouse series. “Dead Ever After” will tell the ending story of the telepathic barmaid, Sookie Stackhouse and the big question that everyone is wanting to know is who does Sookie end up with?
The contenders are Eric, Bill, Sam, Quinn, Alcide or as many think, death.
We can pretty much rule Bill out since Sookie told Bill in the last book that he was now in the “friend” category. I feel that Ms. Harris is being honest there and I feel that this romance story is closed very nicely.
I feel that Quinn is out since he has a family now of his own. Mrs. Harris used ” The Sookie Stackhouse Companion” to tie this up.
Alcide is finally getting his life together and I feel that he is not a contender for Sookie’s hand.
So, that leaves Eric and Sam. Eric is probably the most popular contender for Sookie’s heart. They have dated throughout the last part of the series. But, was there really any passion in the relationship in the last two books? Ms. Harris has Eric basically sold off in the last book and Sookie doesnt’ seem to do anything to help Eric after all the times that he helped her. Does she feel like it is not her place to meddle in vampire affairs? Well, this would be the first time she stayed out of the supernatural business.
It seems like in the last book that she has already given up on their relationship. So, this leaves Sam or death.
Well, Sookie did choose to use the amulet on Sam and not Eric. She has always said she wanted children and she can have these with Sam. Sookie has never wanted to be a vampire and the author said that she never would.
So, why would it be Sam? The passion was hot and heavy the first few books and Charlaine Harris did say that she knew who Sookie was going to be with after the second book. So, would this be Sam?
Also, Sam and Sookie became even closer in the “Sookie Staackhouse Companion” when they attended his families wedding. Mrs. Harris said in an interview with SciFiNow that we shouldn’t limit Sookie’s choices to just Bill or Eric.
Ms. Harris said of Sookie’s experience “I think she’s learned something from all the relationships she’s had, from starting out as a young woman who had never had a serious relationship or a satiable relationship, she’s compressed a lot of experience into the last few years.”
So, does this mean that she realized that her true love is also her best friend, the one loyal friend to her? This would be a great sentiment and ending to the story but not everyone thinks this.
Mrs. Harris has received death threats, suicide threats and much more if Sookie doesn’t end up with Bill or Eric. Many people have also read the leaked ending of the book and have cancelled their orders due to multiple reasons. I have chosen not to read the ending in support of Mrs. Harris.
So, what do you think? Who does she end up with?
