    I think “Villains” is the definite category for all 3.

    But if they’re Villains, what makes Fiona Goode a hero?

    oh god, too many ANTIHEROES scattered all over the place, both in heroes and villains
    it’s just too naive to say that don draper and fiona goode a hero, while tony soprano and nicholas brody a villain?
    they all are three-dimensional flawed human being with no exact nature

    i also want to add:
    hero: SHERLOCK HOLMES from Sherlock
    VICE PRESIDENT SELINA MEYER from Veep

    villain : JIM MORIARTY from Sherlock
    KILLER BOB from Twin Peaks

    p.s. i’m 100% agreed with joffrey baratheon in villain, he’s the devil’s own son!
