Will True Blood reveal 'Bill's' deep dark secret?

Love it or hate it, the season finale of HBO's True Blood took Sookie and Bill's relationship to a new level.

But series creator Alan Ball may be taking a page from Charlaine Harris' original Sookie Stackhouse books to throw a stake-sized wrench into their impending nuptials, according to Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello (spoilers ahead!):

Ball isn't ruling out incorporating a major (and controversial) plot point from the books that, up to now, has only been hinted at in the series (spoiler alert): That Bill came to Bon Temps and seduced Sookie with the ulterior motive of getting her to work for Queen Sophie-Anne.

"It's certainly something that I found really compelling in the books," says Ball of Bill's deep, dark secret. "I was like, 'Wow.' But I can't really tell you what I'm going to do story-wise. So much of the appeal of the show depends on the element of surprise."

What do you think? Should Ball incorporate this nasty surprise? Should he keep Bill (Stephen Moyer) and Sookie (Anna Paquin) together? Should Sookie hook up with Eric (Alexander Skarsgård)? Do you care?
