“What are you?”
“I’m a waitress.”
We’ve heard this many times on "True Blood." Sookie’s telepathic abilities have made her one of the biggest mysteries in "True Blood." The big question on everybody’s mind is finally answered in season three. Bill is told by the queen of Louisiana that Sookie is actually part "fae" or fairy. Therefore her blood tastes different than humans and she is a supernatural being herself. Her blood is so coveted by vampires and especially the queen, not only for its sweet taste but also because it allows a vampire to walk into the sunlight for some time.
