True Blood Star Stephen Moyer Thinks Bill's Not Evil

True Blood's fifth season will come to a close on Sunday with "Save Yourself." While the season finale will undoubtedly end with a cliffhanger, the episode is expected to wrap up most of the hanging storylines of the season -- most importantly, the Authority's war on humanity and Bill's role within that. 

The one-time True Blood hero has apparently broken bad this season, joining the cult surrounding vampire demi-goddess Lillith, along with certified villains Russell Edgington and Steve Newlin. His path to evil has estranged him from those he once called his friends -- in a recent episode, he even struck his vampire progeny, Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) across the face. So the real question going into the season 5 finale isn't whether the Authority will triumph over humanity (they won't). The question is, can Bill be redeemed? 

Actor Stephen Moyer seems to think so. 

"I’d say he thinks he’s doing the right thing," he told TVLine. "But I suppose dictators always think they’re doing the right thing. He’s been lost and he’s found something to grab hold of that he thinks is the right way forward."

"Bill has this belief that what he is doing is right," Moyer continued. "Whether it is right or not we won’t know until the end. But he is like anybody who goes into a cult. He’s a victim. He’s brainwashed."

What do you think? Do you agree with Moyer's interpretation of the character, or do you think that Bill has permanently and deliberately turned from the path of good? 

The True Blood season 5 finale, "Save Yourself," airs Sunday, August 26, at 9/8c on HBO.
