'True Blood': Is Bill Sookie's biggest threat?

Sunday's (August 8) episode of "True Blood" took us another step forward in Sookie's (Anna Paquin) evolution into whatever she is. And from what we can tell, whatever that is, it's going to rock.

We appreciate when a TV show doesn't rush a character arc. "True Blood's" writers have definitely been evolving Sookie slowly, so that whatever seemingly powerful being she is revealed to be is believable to us the viewers.

We've already seen she has a tremendous ability to love. The male characters are naturally drawn to her. We've witnessed her bravery. We've witnessed short, but well-placed, bursts of her "microwave fingers." And in this episode she showed off her sheer physicality (without using any of those cool powerful bursts of energy we like so much) in a fight against Alcide's (Joe Manganiello) were-ex, Debbie (Brit Morgan).
