"Stupid, sexy, spidergirls."
For as much criticism one can level against this season, my biggest compliment is that the show finally has a compelling villain again. Watching Ironwood's slow dissent into madness trying to protect his kingdom from the immortal witch, only to have his orders continuously backfire because the people he thought he could trust continue to disobey him , has been a wild ride. I won't act like what he's doing is morally right or justified, but at least I understand his perspective because I got to see it happen gradually. I haven't enjoyed a villain in this show since Torchwick.
