I thought it was Sophie Ann in the books as well...Well, it happened more or less the same way in the show and the books. His master, Lorena, basically commanded it of him if I recall correctly. And they can't disobey that. Still, meh. Bill's boring, clingy and overprotective. Eric's also overprotective, but he's prettier so he wins. wub

And yes, Eric wins because he's prettier :D
I agree Eric wins because he's prettier. And by winning, he deserves someone FAR superior to Sookie.
