How to use Reality Seeds in Fortnite Season 3

Fortnite has been providing us with skins for over two years. Take a look at all Fortnite tier 100 skins as we rank them from worst to best.

We’re 20 seasons into Fortnite at this point, and 20 Battle Passes deep. We’ve seen hundreds of skins come and go with varying degrees of originality. Some are still in Battle Royale to this day while others are collecting dust in a crowded locker.

Not all Fortnite skins are created equal. Today, we’re looking at the Fortnite tier 100 skins and ranking them from worst to best. Let us know your opinions in the comments!

20. Doctor Strange: Chapter 3 Season 2

fortnite doctor strange marvel skin

This may come as a shock as Marvel skins tend to rank very high, but we’re on a three-season streak of tier 100 Marvel skins. It’s getting old, and this one isn’t really that great.

Doctor Strange feels like it should have been given the Superman treatment, not the Spider-Man. Plus, they didn’t use Benedict Cumberbatch’s face which makes the skin even less exciting to unlock.

19. Vendetta: Season 9

The Vendetta is one of the least favored tier 100 skins of the bunch. The non-upgraded version is lame and the final stage leaves a lot to be desired.

This one was one of the most uninspired tier 100 skin, in my opinion. It doesn’t look very good, either, which is why it’s placed at the bottom of our rankings.

18. Ice King: Season 7

The Ice King is a skin you’ll hardly ever see in a modern Fortnite match. It’s not the ugliest skin we’ve gotten as a tier 100 reward, but it isn’t far off.

The reason this is so low, though, has to do with the size. This skin is massive and clunky, making you feel like an easy target when you’re wearing it.

17. Ultima Knight: Season X

The Ultima Knight is, simply, an addition to the OG Black Knight that ranks much higher in this list. This is a poor man’s Black Knight and everyone knows it.

  • Read More: PSA: Stop falling for this Fortnite troll

Not only is the skin unoriginal, but it’s large and clunky when you rank it up. Anyone who already has the Black Knight won’t be rocking this version into battle

16. Dire: Season 6

The Dire skin is one of the cooler skin concepts Epic has added as a tier 100 skin. The werewolf skin, while interesting, is probably among the least popular skins you’ll see in the game.

  • Read More: How to enable Performance Mode in Fortnite

The base skin is boring and the upgraded version is too big – two ingredients that lead to a bottom-half ranking.

15. Carnage: Chapter 2 Season 8

fortnite carnage skin

Despite being a crossover skin, Carnage is pretty forgettable. With Season 8 being the finale of Chapter 2, the Cube Queen secret skin was more iconic than the Symbiote. It’s big and bulky, and downright ugly.

14. Ragnarok: Season 5

The Ragnarok skin sits right in the middle of the pack. It’s not horrible, but it’s not great, either. The upgraded skin is a little busy for my taste, so I take everything off and roll with the topless bald man.

13. Fusion: Chapter 2, Season 1

The Fusion from Fortnite Chapter 2 is decent but relatively boring. You’d be hard-pressed to find a player still wearing this skin – especially since there were far better options in the same Battle Pass.

I had this one high on my original rankings (from C2S1) but time has knocked it down to just inside the top-10.

12. Rick Sanchez : Chapter 2 Season 7

Fortnite season 7 rick skin

Being able to play as Rick Sanchez is pretty cool seeing as he’s the most iconic character in one of the most popular animated series in recent history. His unique cell-shaded style makes him stand out from other skins, and his smug look makes it seem like every elimination is a cakewalk.

Rick is lower on the list because of his lack of utility and inevitable plummet in popularity in a few seasons. His cartoon style makes him stick out like a sore thumb in-game. His head is a massive target. And players will likely only use this skin for the next season or so.

11. Omega: Season 4

The Omega skin suffers from many of the problems as of the other bottom-half skins: it’s unathletic. That is until you take all of the armor off of the outfit.

  • Read More: Fortnite split-screen: how to play with friends

I rock this skin stripped-down, just as I prefer the Ragnarok skin. It looks sleeker and cooler that way, in my opinion. The base Omega skin squeaks it into the top-10 – especially since you can change the color on the stripped-down version.

10. Mandalorian: Chapter 2 Season 5

Fortnite Mando

This might be a controversial placement, but I’m not a huge fan of the Mandalorian skin. Fans of the show will probably like it more, but it didn’t really do it for me.

Sure, the customization options are there, but you’ll never go back to the pre-upgraded armor like you could with some of the other tier-100 skins. Baby Yoda is a hit, but the Mando skin leaves a lot to be desired.

9. Luxe: Season 8

The Luxe was the number-one tier 100 skin in my book for a long time. This is one of the only tier 100 skins that I still regularly wear when I play Fortnite, and one of only two female skins in the group.

The real reason this one ranks so highly is the back bling. Those golden wings are at least the second-best back bling reward in any Battle Pass.

8. The Reaper: Season 3

For some, the Reaper is going to be a number-one tier 100 Battle Pass skin. I understand this argument, but I never liked it, myself.

  • Read More: How to disable pre-edits in Fortnite

There were some bugs during Season 3 that caused Epic to hand everyone several Battle Pass tiers for free. The result was that almost everyone who bought the Season 3 Battle Pass got the Reaper skin, which is one of the reasons I never really liked it.

Despite my personal bias, I recognize that Season 3 was the golden age of Fortnite and this skin brings back the feels. It’s well-deserving of a top-five finish.

7. Spire Assassin: Chapter 2 Season 6

Fortnite Spire Assassin

The Spire Assassin jumped right to the top-five in my rankings. This skin is one of the best to be released in all of Chapter 2. You look like a dominating force when dressed in its full suit of armor.

It’s always hard to rank a skin while the season is currently underway, but I’m betting that Spire Assassin will be a common sight on the Fortnite island long after Season 6 concludes.

6. Eternal Knight: Chapter 2, Season 3

The Eternal Knight is a strong contender for the best tier-100 skin in the history of Fortnite. All of the variants are cool and unique and the customizable pickaxe is another huge point in favor of the outfit.

Along with only a few others on this list, the Eternal Knight is still a common sight on the Fortnite island. As long as players are still wearing the skin, it deserves a high placement on this list.

5. Midas: Chapter 2, Season 2

Midas remains a favorite of a lot of Fortnite players, whether you’re using his Ghost, Shadow, or all-gold version.

The Midas skin is the best of both worlds. He’s slender, which means he doesn’t take up much of your screen, but he’s still a cool and interesting character whose outfit goes well with a lot of different combinations.

4. Darth Vader: Chapter 3 Season 3

fortnite darth vader feature image

I know, I know… Chapter 3 Season 3 may be the fourth season in a row where Fortnite’s Tier 100 skin was a crossover character. But it’s Darth Vader!

Star Wars fans and Fortnite players alike have waited for the famed Sith Lord to make an appearance in Fortnite since their first collab a long, long time ago. This skin is iconic, and well designed, and people will be rocking this Jedi for a long time to come.

3. Iron Man: Chapter 2 Season 4

Come on, it’s Iron Man. This is how you do a tier-100 crossover skin, and the Mandalorian was a huge step back from Tony Stark in the previous season.

With one skin, you get both Iron Man and Tony Stark – which you can switch between in-game. If you leveled up the Battle Pass, you can also play as Gold, Silver, or Holographic Iron Man/Tony Stark. It’s hard to see this as anything less than a top-rated skin.

2. Spider-Man: Chapter 3 Season 1

fortnite chapter 3 spider man web shooters

Wow, who could have guessed that one of the most highly-praised crossover skins would make it to spot number 2. Previously held by Iron-Man, it makes sense that Peter Parker would take his place eventually.

What’s not to like about his skin? It’s clean, slick, and has some of the best alternate styles to date. Even it’s enlightened skin variants look phenomenal which is something that can’t be said for most Tier 100 skins.

1. Black Knight: Season 2

I know, I know. The Black Knight isn’t technically a Tier 100 skin. It’s a final-tier Battle Pass skin, though, so it’s worth including on this list.

  • Read More: How to tame animals in Fortnite Season 6

The Black Knight is the classic. It’s the OG. Wearing one of these skins doesn’t mean that you’re good, but it does mean that you’ve been playing the game for a long time.

The Black Knight takes the number-one spot because it’s one of the most aesthetically pleasing final-tier skins we’ve ever received. It’s not my personal favorite, but it carries a certain amount of significance for OG Fortnite players.

What’s your number-one tier 100 Fortnite skin? Let us know in the comments.

8 Remakes That Give Me Hope For The Future Of Filmmaking, And 8 That Prove Hollywood’s Out Of Ideas

Father of the Bride was just released on HBO Max last week.


HBO Max

This is the third film adaptation of the 1949 novel of the same name written by Edward Streeter. In 1950, the novel was adapted into a film starring Spencer Tracy and Elizabeth Taylor. Then, in 1991, it was remade with Steve Martin.


Touchstone Pictures

The newest iteration of the film is a fresh new take on the story, with a Cuban-American family at the helm.


HBO Max

Sometimes, we get lucky and Hollywood will give us a remake that brings something new to the story. But, more often than not, we’re just watching a carbon copy of a movie that brought film execs financial success in the past.


Fox

So let’s take a look at 8 remakes that actually had something new to say, and 8 that seem a little TOO familiar if you ask me:

Advertisement

1.

TOO SIMILAR — Little Women (2019)


Sony Pictures Releasing

This movie’s great, and it was nominated for tons of awards, BUT this is the SEVENTH film version of Little Women. There’s also been a miniseries, TV adaptations, musicals, and even an opera. That’s too many things, especially when the basic story is left relatively unchanged. Did Hollywood need to remake this, really? Or did they need to showcase the current who’s who of white millennial and Gen Z Hollywood for profit?

2.

ADDED SOMETHING NEW — Annie (2014)


Columbia Pictures

This remake didn’t get the best reviews, but at least the filmmakers gave us something different. Annie had been made twice before this, with a pretty similar-looking cast both times. This 2014 Annie was the first version to be set in the present-day instead of the Great Depression. And, it was also the first version to cast Black actors as the two leads. (Jamie Foxx as Daddy Warbucks and Quvenzhané Wallis as Annie).

3.

TOO SIMILAR — Carrie (2013)

Advertisement


Sony Pictures

The 2013 version of Carrie was supposed to be more of an adaptation of the original book rather than a remake of the 1976 De Palma classic, but it pretty much follows the original beat-for-beat.

There were definitely some stylistic differences, but this new version didn’t seem to update the look of Carrie’s mother and their house, or any of the creepy old-fashioned religious stuff either. It was so similar to the original that, at certain points, I forgot this was set in modern day.

Kimberly Peirce, the remake’s director, is an incredible filmmaker, and I think this was a case of the movie studio having too much input. They wanted to update Carrie, but instead of doing so in a meaningful way, they gave us the same old story but *now with cell phones!*

4.

ADDED SOMETHING NEW — West Side Story (2021)


20th Century Studios

2021’s West Side Story was a hit with both audiences and critics. It followed the same storyline as the original from 1961, but incorporated a couple of changes. One major change was the role of Anybodys. In the original movie, Anybodys was a tomboy, but in the 2021 version, he is a trans man. This, along with casting actual Latinx actors to play characters that are Puerto Rican, gives the movie and its characters much more depth.

5.

TOO SIMILAR — Psycho (1998)

Advertisement


Universal Pictures

There’s no doubt in my mind that this near shot-for-shot remake of Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 classic Psycho should never have been made. Vince Vaughn? As Norman Bates? He wishes. 

I love Gus Van Sant, the director who made this, but like, if you have the go-ahead to remake one of the most beloved horror movies of all time, at least do something different. And I’m not talking about making it in color or adding a scene where Vince Vaughn’s Norman is jerking off to Marion Crane because those weren’t enough. Give me something different, something weirder! People are gonna compare your version to the original anyway, so if you do something completely out of left field, maybe they’d at least respect that. 

6.

ADDED SOMETHING NEW — Freaky Friday (2018)

Advertisement


Disney

People regard the 2003 Lindsay Lohan/Jamie Lee Curtis Freaky Friday as the best version, and maybe even the only version. But, there have actually been three other adaptations of the movie. The newest one is a Disney Channel Original Movie, and it’s based on a musical of the same name. The movie itself is a bit strange and awkward, but the songs slap. It truly doesn’t feel like a remake. It’s its own thing, which is good, because I feel like Disney knows that if they tried to remake the 2003 one, there would be an uproar.

7.

TOO SIMILAR — A Christmas Carol


Walt Disney Pictures

Advertisement

Okay, I’m not talking about a specific version of A Christmas Carol here, and more just like, all the versions. There’s just so many, and they keep coming out. Sure, there’ll be an original gem once in a while hidden among all the clones, but they’re pretty few and far between. And like, why even make another version afterThe Muppet Christmas Carol exists?

8.

ADDED SOMETHING NEW (but just barely) — Pet Sematary (2019)


Paramount Pictures Studios

The Pet Sematary remake made some pretty big changes from the original 1989 version. The plot is basically the same: in both films, a family moves into a new house, one of their kids gets hit by a truck, they bury the kid in a cemetery that brings the dead back to life, and the kid comes back wrong and kills people. In the original, the family’s very young son Gage dies, while in the remake, it’s the older sister Ellie that gets run over. 

Advertisement

By changing which kid dies, the new Pet Sematary tried to do something different, so I’ll give them that. But, I think it actually just made the story super boring. A toddler zombie boy is just always gonna be scarier to me than the overused trope of a creepy little girl. But A for effort!

9.

TOO SIMILAR — The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)


Sony Pictures

In 2002 Sam Raimi gave us the iconic Spider-Man starring Tobey Maguire, which led to the greatest superhero movie of all time, Spider-Man 2, and, of course, the notoriously campy Spider-Man 3. Just five short years after the third entry, Sony gave us The Amazing Spider-Man starring Andrew Garfield. Not only did we have to see the whole spider bite/transformation stuff all over again, but we had to witness Uncle Ben’s death a second time, all while Raimi’s franchise was still pretty fresh in our minds.

Advertisement

But I guess it was all worth it when both Maguire and Garfield returned in 2021’s Spider-Man: No Way Home to join Tom Holland’s version of Spider-Man for an interdimensional team-up.

10.

ADDED SOMETHING NEW — Ghostbusters (2016)


Columbia Pictures

Many people hated the 2016 remake of Ghostbusters. Some thought it was a gimmick, but we can all agree that it brought something new to the table. It was an all-female team of Ghostbusters this time. And while it wasn’t the greatest movie ever made, it tried something different. 

Advertisement

The release of the new Ghostbusters and the subsequent backlash it received prompted a lot of discourse regarding gender and fan culture, but nothing really came of it. If Hollywood made a gender-swapped Indiana Jones right now, I’m sure the fans would react the same exact way they responded to Ghostbusters. This is exactly why Hollywood needs to keep taking chances like this. So that, eventually, everyone will be able to see themselves on screen.

11.

TOO SIMILAR — Cinderella (2015)


Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures

Disney’s recent trend of remaking their animated films into live-action versions seems to me like a HUGE missed opportunity, especially with Cinderella. We’ve seen the animated version from 1950 a hundred times. We’re so familiar with the characters and the storyline, that it’s boring to see the same thing again, even if it’s being done with real live actors. Instead of casting an actor that looks identical to a cartoon character that was drawn over 60 years ago, why not cast someone completely different? Or maybe change the plot slightly, or add a twist ending?

Advertisement

There are dozens of similar adaptations of Cinderella. Unless someone adds something new to the mix, can we just stop making these movies? I mean, I can only take so many dead dads, big gown reveals, and unexplained musical interludes.

12.

ADDED SOMETHING NEW — The Mummy (1999)


Universal Pictures

The Mummy remake was a huge success. It led to two sequels and launched The Scorpion King franchise. The film that it was based on was a horror movie, 1932’s The Mummy starring Boris Karloff. The remake, however, was an action-adventure film with Brendan Frasier at the helm.

Advertisement

I want to say that the reason this remake is not just a carbon copy of the original is because the plot, the characters, and the genre are completely different. But, while that’s true, the “something new” that sets this film apart from the original is, in fact, Brendan Fraser.

Fraser’s Rick O’Connell is a true himbo, an icon of his time, and the whole reason why when someone mentions The Mummy there’s no way you’re thinking of the 1932 version.

13.

TOO SIMILAR — A Star is Born (2018)


Warner Bros. Pictures

Advertisement

The latest, and fourth, adaption of A Star is Born, was similar to its Barbra Streisand-led 1976 predecessor. Yes, there were several changes, but that wasn’t enough for some people, namely Barbra Streisand who struggled with its originality. She has said that the Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper film was too close to her version and essentially “the wrong idea.”

She was quoted as saying, “I can’t argue with success, but I don’t care so much about success as I do originality.” 

I love the sentiment, Barbra. Go shake things up in Hollywood.

14.

ADDED SOMETHING NEW — The Great Gatsby (2013)

Advertisement


Warner Bros. Pictures

Whether you like him or not, Baz Luhrmann always gives us a cinematic extravaganza. Watching one of his movies is an event. 

In his 2013 interpretation of The Great Gatsby, he mixes old eras with modern music, his sets and costumes are over-the-top, and everything you see looks almost surreal. It oozes decadence and opulence and sometimes it’s even too much to look at. And, we already have a straightforward retelling of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel in 1979’s The Great Gatsby starring Robert Redford and Mia Farrow. Baz Luhrmann knew that. So he gave us Gatsby through his eyes. He did what a remake should do: update an old story for a modern audience.

15.

TOO SIMILAR — Funny Games (2007)

Advertisement


Madman Entertainment, Warner Independent

In 1997, director Michael Haneke released his Austrian thriller Funny Games. He had always wanted to set it in America, so ten years later, he made it again with American actors in a shot-for-shot remake.

Because it’s made by the same director, the 2007 version is equally as scary and effective as its ’90s precursor.

These movies aren’t just siblings, they’re identical twins, and you can’t really choose one over the other. It’s like that old “spot the imposter” trope where the villain’s disguised themselves as the hero’s friend and they both try to convince the hero that the other one is the imposter.

Advertisement

16.

ADDED SOMETHING NEW — Little Shop of Horrors (1986)


Warner Bros. Pictures

1986’s Little Shop of Horrors is based on a musical from 1982, which is based on a horror comedy film from 1960. 

The musical stars America’s sweetheart Rick Moranis as Seymour in a career-defining performance (Spaceballs who?). The music was written and composed by Howard Ashman and EGOT-winner Alan Menken. They would go on to write the music for The Little MermaidBeauty and the Beast, and Aladdin. 

Advertisement

The film was nominated for two Oscars and is now considered an absolute classic. By turning the original into a musical, the remake, while still keeping its horror-comedy tone, can totally stand on its own.

Let us know which remakes you thought added something new to the source material and which ones were too similar.

“The Vampire Diaries” Franchise Has Come To A Close — Here Are The Best And Worst Moments Of The Mikaelson Family

This family needed to book a lifetime of sessions with Cami the therapist.

As last week’s episode of Legacies put The Vampire Diaries universe to rest, viewers said goodbye to the Mikaelson family for good. The finale featured a cameo by fan-favorite vamp Klaus, who appeared one last time to bid a final farewell to his daughter, Hope.

View this video on YouTube


The CW / Via YouTube

Klaus, along with his siblings, make an appearance in all three of the franchise’s TV series (The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, and Legacies) as the world’s very first vampires with centuries’ worth of baggage.

Advertisement

Seriously. No family is perfect, but the Mikaelsons are one of the most toxic households to grace television. Here are eight examples…

1. When Klaus would dagger his siblings for literal decades.


The CW / Via tenor.com

In this universe, “daggering” is just a term for putting a vampire to sleep with a magical knife (as one does). Klaus keeps his sibling’s coffins at the ready wherever he goes, in the event of a little rivalry. When they disagree with him or betray him, he just pops them in there for a couple of decades. Casual.

2. When Klaus was super controlling of Rebekah’s love life (and also killed a bunch of her boyfriends…).

Advertisement


The CW / Via tenor.com

When we first meet Rebekah in The Vampire Diaries, she’s got a thing going with Stefan during the prohibition era. Despite being friends with Stefan, Klaus is not approving of the relationship and is super possessive and creepy when it comes to his sister. In The Originals, we learn that Klaus has literally killed a number of Rebekah’s boyfriends over the centuries and, up until the end of the series, denies her any chance at successful love. Toxic, much?

3. When their parents were just super toxic in general.


The CW / Via tenor.com

Mikael and Esther are the primary reason the Mikaelson siblings need therapy. First, they use magic to try to make their children immortal, accidentally turning them into vampires. Disgusted by this, both parents go on multiple benders trying to end their children. Klaus kills them both, but there are multiple times that they return from the grave to wreak havoc.

4. When Elijah was in love with Klaus’s baby mama.


The CW / Via tenor.com

Strangely, this is the least problematic plotline on this list. Klaus and Hayley primarily grow a platonic co-parenting relationship, and it’s actually Elijah who falls for Hayley once she integrates herself with the family. Oddly enough, this complex dynamic doesn’t send Klaus spiraling. Still, it the makes the list, because it just would happen to the Mikaelsons.

5. When Kol pranked Rebekah by body-swapping her with an evil witch.


The CW / Via gfycat.com

During a dramatic body-swapping predicament, Kol traps his sister’s soul in the body of a witch who is imprisoned in an insane asylum. Turns out, this particular witch is a sociopathic child murderer, which it seems Kol didn’t know, but still. The savagery of trapping Rebekah in an asylum due to being hurt about something she did back in the 1900s seems a little much.

6. When Freya’s devotion to the family caused consistent turbulence in her dating life.


The CW / Via tenor.com

As the oldest sibling, Freya feels the burden of ensuring her sister and brothers are safe. She often takes this to the extreme and is always cooking up a magical spell to protect family members, which is fine and dandy when you have so many enemies but also has to be exhausting. When she begins to date Keelin, she has a lot of trouble setting boundaries with her family. Fortunately, the two work out their relationship in the end, and she is able to finally invest in herself.

7. When Marcel’s complicated relationship with Klaus caused extreme highs and lows.

The CW / Via tenor.com

When Marcel is a child, he’s taken under Klaus’s wing and eventually turned into a vampire. Despite their love for one another, the two have a complicated and confusing relationship. I mean very complicated and confusing. They are either threatening to kill the other and squabbling over control of the French Quarter, or they are best friends. Marcel can’t seem to decide if he loves or hates the Mikaelsons, and with all that they put him through, it’s hard to blame him.

8. When the family was cursed so Elijah wiped his memory.


The CW / Via tenor.com

The aftermath of The Hollow — a terrible evil spirit in The Originals — leaves the Mikaelson siblings unable to be in the same room without causing mass destruction. While this is horrible, it’s fortunate that this happens during the 21st century when phones are a thing, rather than decades prior. Since the thought of staying away from his family is too much to bear, Elijah wipes his memory completely free of all loved ones. This causes a lot of drama and, perhaps, could’ve been avoided if he scheduled some daily FaceTimes.

OK, these guys are a lot of drama, but they do have some redeeming moments. Here are six times the Mikaelsons siblings were endearing:

1. When all of the siblings put Hope’s well-being before their own.


The CW / Via tenor.com

For a family whose selfishness is unmatched, the birth of Klaus and Hayley’s daughter, Hope, is a major game changer. Not only does Hope help Klaus find what’s left of his humanity, but she makes a big impact on the other immortals as well. The siblings make some pretty big sacrifices to ensure Hope’s safety during The Originals, and this carries into Legacies territory as well.

2. When Hope carried on her family’s legacy.

Advertisement


The CW / Via tenor.com

Speaking of Legacies, the third installment of the franchise dives into the life of the youngest family member, who now has some serious magic powers. Since she’s a Mikaelson, she’s got trauma, anger, and baggage at the ready, but we also see her fight for the greater good. She may come from one very complicated and ancient family, but she’s carrying on the best parts of their legacy.

3. When they honored their vow of always and forever.


The CW / Via tenor.com

In flashback scenes scattered throughout The Vampire Diaries and The Originals, viewers get a glimpse into what different centuries have been like for this crew. The siblings have been isolated, on the run from enemies, and left to survive only with the company of one another. They vow to be there for each other “always and forever,” which plays a large role in their devotion to family. Even in their worst moments, they try to uphold this vow.

Advertisement

4. When they made sacrifices for one another.


The CW / Via tenor.com

While the family is certainly riddled with concerning behaviors, we do see glimmers of selflessness throughout various seasons. Klaus, for example, becomes Marcel’s prisoner to keep his siblings safe; and, despite only having each other, the family decides to go separate ways for a time when The Hollow threatens to harm Hope. At the end of the day, they put family above all else.

5. When they finally admitted to their mistakes.


The CW / Via tenor.com

Advertisement

Unsurprisingly, the Mikaelsons have made a couple of mistakes over the years. As their stories progress, they begin to acknowledge their wrongdoings and attempt to change their ways. Klaus’s redemptive arch is the most distinct, as he begins his journey as a cunning and ruthless villain and becomes a loving father who sacrifices everything for his loved ones.

6. When they realized that they deserve happiness too.
