A funny thing happened to the TV characters who made our original “Most Polarizing” list: many are no longer with us! (Was it something we said?)
Actually, chalk it up to cancellations and such. Regardless, that mass exodus of those you love, love, love or haaaaate has created a void, which we are here to fill.
TVLine pays attention, taking notice of the characters that, like clockwork, spark debate — be it either Arrow blonde, a traitorous S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, the ruler of an Empire, Once Upon a Time‘s “reformed” pirate or any number of TV teens.
In the slideshow below (or click here for direct access), we take stock of TV’s most divisive characters, the ones you either find awesome or loathsome. See if your (least?) favorites made the list and vote for the way you see these pop culture pot-stirrers.
