When you have a TV show that lasts for many years and several seasons, chances are its characters are going to go through changes. In fact, if you compare what they were like from episode one to the finale, you’ll barely recognise them.
While it makes sense for certain characters to experience such a big change due to what’s going on in the plot (Walter White in Breaking Bad, Carol in The Walking Dead, Sansa Stark in Game of Thrones, even Sawyer in Lost), there are some characters whose personality transplants made far less sense.
Whether it’s the writers playing to the strengths of the actor, a change of editorial direction or simply bad writing, it’s weird to see how much these people changed.
