Ebenezer Scrooge was the antagonist in The Christmas Carol, a story about the relationships that we foster or destroy and about punishment or redemption. Scrooge's business partner came back as a ghost to warn Scrooge of his fate should he not change his ways. Scrooge was a miserly old man that pushed everyone who ever loved him away from him. If he didn't change his ways, his path was clear.
In the City of Santa Ramona Valley we have our own Ebenezer Scrooge. Max Mactavish, by all accounts, should be the antagonist in our story. A man who spent over twenty-five years in a super max prison for attempting to blow up his former precinct where he was a Police Lieutenant. His actions left his daughter, Alexia Rousseau, to be raised in a broken foster care system in Louisiana. He then kidnapped his grandchildren, putting his daughter and her husband through an emotional roller coaster of fear and worry.
