It’s easy for creators to trick you into believing a villain is actually the hero. Just take a look at Ted Mosby in How I Met Your Mother. That guy sucks! No wonder it took him nearly 10 years to find a wife. He is INSUFFERABLE.
We digress, but you get the point.
A popular meme format — on any platform, really — is to reveal who the actual villain is in iconic TV shows and movies.
Some are obvious, while others will shake you to your core.
Here are a few of the best examples.
“Pam is the worst for me. The more I rewatch the show, the more I resent her and believe that she holds Jim back. Yes, he also did bad things, like buy a house without checking with her first (although, they weren’t even married yet, and it was his money). They bonded over their mutual hatred for their jobs and the office, but then she held him from doing something he was finally passionate about. Only until everyone else moved on from the show/the office did she finally decide to let him fully embrace his new job. And Angela — she’s rude, demeaning, racist, homophobic, fatphobic, a cheater (multiple times), and denied Dwight the right to his son until he fell in love with her. Literally besides being a cat lover, I can’t think of any redeeming qualities.”filledwithanxiety

“People think the villain is Sue. The real villain is Mr. Schue. Like, seriously! I recently rewatched Glee as an adult, and I am shocked at the things he got away with.”palestinianwarrior1988
“Regina and Janis were both 100% in the wrong. People need to understand that there’s not always a clean ‘one side bad/one side good’ aspect of conflict. Sometimes both are bad, and you have to recognize that you need to create your own side to right both of them.”cherrybombdotcom
