sookie benIf there's one thing that's been missing from this season of True Blood (and honestly? They haven't missed much), it's a good old-fashioned showdown between romantic rivals. A smackown! A duel, even. And for a while there, it seemed like we weren't ever gonna get one -- I mean, who'd be challenging whom for whose hand?! The Bill/Sookie/Eric triangle is far past the fizzle stage, and none of the other relationships are remotely high stakes enough. (Pam and Tara?! Alcide and that naked chick?) But according to Rob Kazinsky (Ben/Warlow), we might get that showdown yet!

Apparently Ben's feelings for Sookie are super strong -- and Sookie's feelings for Ben are just as intense. So when their union is threatened by someone else, says Kazinsky, the "chains of will he holds himself back with sort of rust and break."

Ruh-roh!! And THEN there's this synopsis for Episode 9, "Life Matters." 

“A desperate Bill (Stephen Moyer) tries to ferry Warlow (Rob Kazinsky) away from the faerie plain, but Sookie (Anna Paquin) is having none of it. Meanwhile, Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) arrives at vamp camp, looking to inflict serious human damage. In Bon Temps, friends and family take emotional turns remembering a fallen neighbor. Bill feels the pull of Lilith’s (Jessica Clark) sirens.”

Maybe instead of Ben and Bill fighting over Sookie, we'll see Sookie and Ben vs. Billith??

Do you think Sookie will end up with Bill or Ben?
