- Alternate Character Interpretation: Is Bill a Friendly Neighborhood Vampire or just A Lighter Shade of Black to his fellow undead? He tries to reduce the number of murders his coven commits but ends up preying on people about to commit suicide instead. He saves a lot of people but he also turns a blind eye to the worst sort of atrocities committed by his people. He's also a Jerkass but is he a Jerk with a Heart of Gold?
- Broken Base: Whether Bill's attitude toward women and certain minorities is a turn off of the series.
- Crack Pairing: Who could have possibly imagined Bill would end up with CHRISTY of all people?
- Unintentionally Sympathetic: Bill uses a lot of abelist, sexist, and homophobic language which wouldn't have been out of place for a teenager in The '90s but has since become extremely taboo. His friends aren't any better. Bill, himself, doesn't appear to hold any of these views but still talks like that.
