Lisey’s Story on Apple TV Plus: What is a Blood Bool?

Lisey’s Story is now streaming on Apple TV Plus and it’s more mysterious and bold than many anticipated, especially those not familiar with the Stephen King novel. One of the first questions audiences have, is what is a Blood Bool?

Okay, let’s be honest here. The first two episodes of the mystery drama premiered on Apple TV Plus and audiences are packed with questions, not just about Blood Bool, but everything in general.

Let’s just say, there’s a lot going on. In fact, many critics have commented that Lisey’s Story tries to include  “too much” for audiences to keep up with. I can see how many believe this to be true. However, having already watched most episodes, I personally don’t see it as a problem.

The series is not for everyone, I’ll admit, but if you are the right audience, you’ll be able to follow along and enjoy the thrilling (and haunting) ride. That said, let’s move on by breaking down one of the biggest questions so far.

What is a Blood Bool in Lisey’s Story?

This series should come with a trigger warning for all those afraid of blood. If you cringe easily at the sight of blood and cutting, you’re in for some chills. Then again, you should have already expected this from a Stephen King adaptation.

In Lisey’s Story, one of the best examples of  “Blood Bool” happens when Lisey and her husband Scott get into a fight. Scott doesn’t know how to make things right with his wife, so he leaves and harms himself.

Lisey’s finds him and is shocked, unsure of what to think. Scott tells her that it’s okay, his injury, his blood, is a Blood Bool. It has released all the bad energy and shown Lisey’s how truly sorry Scott is. Lisey instantly forgives him, not so much because the “Blood Bool” trick worked, but because she’s so concerned about it.

It’s important to note that Scott has a history of cutting and self-harming, as does Lisey’s sister, who had a close bond with Scott.
