Do you feel the bad guys reap what they sow? Usually, media conventions on plot development, or tropes, establish the baddie will receive its punishment, one way or another, after the good guys “win” on whatever conflict they were facing. Recent decades, however, have seen a shift on the consideration of a villain, rising its importance to the story as the same level of the protagonist (Miles, 2015). TV shows such as Los Soprano, House of Cards, Breaking Bad, or Dexter feature villains as main characters. Importantly, though, is how their arc develops during the course of the plot. Beforehand, there was a moralizing intention, meaning that stories featured villains doomed by their actions at the end (Marqués, 2016). However, modern media disregards this motivation in favour of a “realistic” portrayal of crime and evil (TV tropes). Nowadays, the villain is able to escape “karma” and gets no punishment from his actions. This shift permeates as well in other genres apart from TV dramas, and can also be seen in movies and literature.
