Today, I think, one of the villains dies.
But I'm not sure.
After all, he really is a baddie, and he's been around for millenia. Doesn't seem fair to kill him off with so simple a weapon (nope, not gonna tell ya!) and in so casual a fashion.
On the other hand, he's a leech, feeding off another villain's life and mind and spirit, controlling him in order to have power, and it seems fitting that the host kill the parasite.
After all, it's not as if there aren't more baddies out there--including the host's wife, who's a real nasty. I'm having fun writing her; does that mean I'm twisted?
I've never written so many villains who are so bad as this bunch.
The irony? (evil laugh and a twirl of my invisible mustache) The host's wife is a parasite herself; he kills off one terrible bloodsucker only to clear the way for a worse one. MWAH-HA-HA-HA-HA!
