Some characters just have a way of manipulating the situation. Sometimes it's in a big way, and other times, it's an intimate chess game between the characters as they pull together the pieces and threads that serve their interest.
While you might not think manipulation is a good thing, it is often essential to a plot of good television. It complicates situations, and when structured correctly can keep audiences interested over a season or seasons.
Characters who do the manipulating can work on both sides of the good vs. evil divide and can often straddle it completely. Whatever their motivations are, the one thing they have in common is that they can play the long game, and often have fun doing it.
Here are 27 characters we'd consider masters of manipulation.
1. Madam Satan (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina)
2. Jane Chatwin (The Magicians)
3. YoSaffBridge (Firefly)
4. Carolyn Martens (Killing Eve)
5. A (Pretty Little Liars)
6. Number Six (Battlestar Galactica)
