"Why do you persist in tormenting me? I just want to be left alone!"
Does anyone else ever get that feeling where they feel so, so bad for a villain? Even a terrible one? Especially when they see said villain doing something so small and innocent like eating a sandwich quietly? Maybe it’s just me, but I couldn’t help but almost cry for Derek Powers at this moment.
He’s lost everything and even his own son is against him. He’s got nothing left. He has to hide out for the rest of his life in a submarine with no one but his assistant to keep him company. And even then, how long will she stick around? All he wants is to be left alone, but Terry (and with all rights to) is hunting him down.
Could this be what they call “sympathy for the devil”?
