““You don’t understand an antagonist until you understand why he’s a protagonist in his own version of the world.”— John Rogers. This is why i love ouat, we get to see both sides and make up our minds on who really is the antagonist”

I agree with this to a point, but that doesn’t mean understanding the antagonists means we are obligated to like them or grant them clemency as viewers. I personally need the antagonist needs to understand why others view them as such and be actively working on changing before I root for them.
