This is how you make a show about a VILLAIN, keep him in character and still have the audience fall in love with him and root for him. This is what an actual adult themed vampire show looks like. Dracula will always do horrible things. We want to see him do horrible things.That’s the main reason we’re watching the show, well its the main reason I’m watching the show and Jonathan Rhys Meyers does strange things to my body. The writers don’t need to manufacture any fake redemption for him when its evident that Mina is the one thing that he loves most and THAT is his redemption. I just love it when writers really understand their characters and deliver on what their audience wants to see.
