    The third season of [[True Blood (TV Series)|True Blood]] introduced the character of Alcide Herveaux.

    In the books, Alcide ends up helping Sookie Stackhouse to find Bill as a favour to Eric. He’s a werewolf with a deranged ex-girlfriend – Debbie Pelt – who takes a murderous dislike to Sookie. More than that, he and Sookie get wrapped up in some dangerous scenes, and end up disposing of a body together. How romantic.

    More importantly, I always thought of him as a perfect replacement for Bill. Sookie developed warm feelings for Alcide almost instantly when he came to her house and had a cooked breakfast – and she could never have a normal meal with Bill.

    On the contrary, Alcide popped up as a character in the first half of the series and has gone AWOL in the second half altogether. I don’t think True Blood did a great job of capturing Alcide’s positive points – his flawed father, his welcoming sister and how good he might be for Sookie. In the books Alcide was almost the perfect lover for her, but I don’t think he translated very well to True Blood. What do you think?
