With Sunday's season premiere of True Blood, fans are eagerly set to anticipate the fate of heroine Sookie Stackhouse – particularly where her love life will lead her.
As played by Anna Paquin, Sookie spent the first two seasons of the HBO hit engaging in some of TV's most explicit, lusty romps with her vampire lover Bill Compton, portrayed by Paquin's real-life husband, Stephen Moyer.
At the end of season 3, Sookie learned the heartbreaking secret that Bill had been sent on a mission to woo her by the Queen of Louisiana – putting into question everything about the relationship between the two.
Was their entire romance a sham, or did he truly fall in love with Sookie? Could she ever trust him again?

Anna Paquin is one lucky girl!
The True Blood heroine finds herself surrounded by a host of sexy leading men – Alexander Skarsgard, Joe Manganiello, and real-life husband Stephen Moyer – in new photos released by HBO to promote the upcoming fourth season of the vampy show.
Last viewers checked in with Paquin's Sookie Stackhouse, she had left Bon Temps, La., for her fairy relatives, and had shut Moyer's Bill Compton out of her life after Skarsgard's vampire character Eric revealed her love's betrayal.

True Blood heartthrob Joe Manganiello asked his true love, actress-model Audra Marie, to marry him during a recent Italian vacation because he realized she was it.
"I knew early on that she was the one for me," Manganiello, 33, told PEOPLE Saturday night at Seminole Casino Coconut Creek's "Haunting" weekend event in south Florida. "I wasn't expecting to get married just yet, but when I felt this was the right situation for me, I decided to go ahead."
In September, Manganiello, who plays the wondrous werewolf Alcide Herveaux on HBO's hit vampire series, told PEOPLE that Marie is a "great dresser, gorgeous, tall, sweet, and she makes crazy English breakfasts."

Sorry ladies, Joe Manganiello is off the market.
While on vacation in Italy the True Blood heartthrob, 33, popped the question to his girlfriend, actress/model Audra Marie, his rep tells PEOPLE.
Manganiello, who plays werewolf Alcide Herveaux on the HBO drama, and Marie met at a 2009 Super Bowl party, but it was anything but love at first sight.
"She wouldn't go out with me for six months," Manganiello told PEOPLE in September. "We started dating a few months before I got cast [on True Blood]."

True Blood's hunky werewolf Joe Manganiello sometimes brings his work home with him. And that's just fine by his girlfriend, actress and model Audra Marie.
"I sniff you a lot. And I growl a lot when you ask me to do things, like clean up," Manganiello joked to Marie while talking with PEOPLE at Wednesday's New York premiere of HBO's Boardwalk Empire.
Asked if it's a turn-on that her boyfriend plays a werewolf, Marie replied, "Of course!" She added that Manganiello is perfectly cast, "if you saw how he eats at home. He likes to eat meat without a utensil."
