'True Blood'

Sundays, 9 p.m., HBO

Poor Sookie Stackhouse. When we last saw Louisiana's sexiest telepathic waitress, she was devastated to learn that her lover, Vampire Bill, had been ordered to seduce Sookie (Anna Paquin). It didn't matter that Bill (Paquin's husband, Stephen Moyer) had fallen in love with her – the betrayal was real. And so Sookie is poised to fall into the arms of Vampire Eric, played by Alexander Skarsgård.

If a love triangle between vampires and a small-town waitress sounds over-the-top, then you probably weren't one of the 11.8 million viewers who watched the True Blood Season Three finale. "It's easy to wonder, 'Oh, who is Sookie gonna pick?' " says Alan Ball, the show's creator. "I know it's female wish fulfillment, but it's also like, 'Well, who gets the prize?' All the vampires are going, 'She's mine, she's mine,' but why should she be anybody's? Why shouldn't they be hers? Why do men always get to make all the rules?"
