Sookie (Anna Paquin) and Tara (Rutina Wesley)
Torn between Bill and Eric, Sookie chooses herself -- walking away from them both in the hopes of ending the heart-wrenching love triangle for good. But Sookie being Sookie, she immediately finds trouble as werewolf Alcide's psycho ex Debbie Pelt (Brit Morgan) is hiding out at Sookie's house waiting to kill her. Just as Debbie shoots Sookie, best friend Tara jumps in front of the bullet. With Tara bleeding out on the kitchen floor, a furious and vengeful Sookie jumps Debbie, wrestles away the shotgun and shoots Debbie in the head.
