Is it wrong that the antagonist was my favorite character? The scenes where she used her sexuality to manipulate and control situations were pretty uncomfortable, but I drew some parallels that apply in the real world. Most people are intimidated by sexually empowered women. My reactions to this character have inspired me to rethink some of my reactions to women who have made me uncomfortable in the past. Women who unapologetically go after what they want in a world where women are expected to be small, cute, innocent, placid, and malleable.
She wasn't my favorite because she thrived on killing. She was my favorite because she made me uncomfortable and she made me think.
