A villain you would like redeemed and why?
Had to think about this one. I mean Scrooge was redeemed, did it make all the pain he inflicted any better? He gets to jump about and laugh, everyone else is still dirt poor. Daytime dramas always start a character as a bad person then redeem them through love. Been done to death.
Okay, here goes. Saruman for LOTR.
He was a good guy, just seduced by Sauron. Gandolf wanted to rehabilitate him. What if Wormtale didn't kill him. Maybe once Sauron was defeated Saruman would have come to his senses.
