Looking at a Drawing of Her Boobs
At the start of The Magicians Season 4, she was briefly a fashion editor named Janet. Despite the spell, she could still tell it like it is. Her reaction fo the graphic novel her new identity was based on was just one of many comebacks Janet served up.
When She Needed a Hot Bath
If you didn't know that Margo wasn't to be messed with her stress when it came to dealing with her best friend's second wedding in Season 2 was a pretty good reminder. Having to deal with a moping Quentin she was very clear about her need for a break.
Referencing Game of Thrones
The Magicians is no stranger to pop culture references. Game of Thrones shows up regularly, but throwing Ned Stark in with Margo's bravado feels like a match made in heaven.
When She Was Cool About Regicide
Remember that time they found out the Fillory thrones were cursed and everyone tried to kill each other? Margo was the most calculated of the bunch, and she was also absolutely comfortable throwing out the term regicide.
When She Really Needed Eliot to Man Up
In timeline twenty-three, Margo and Eliot were on a mission that got them killed, but even that Margo served up her trademark sass in the face of danger. The only thing more on-brand is the line that came after, "I'd say pussy, but let's be honest, which one's weaker."
Calling Out the Patriarchy
No one tells Margo what to do, and the deeper she gets into Fillorian culture, the more she's over the misogynistic traditions that belong in the Dark Ages. We can't say we blame her.
When She Left Eliot for Ibiza
In Season 1, Eliot decided to stay behind on a trip. Margo wasn't willing to let him leave without some affectionate parting words.
Bringing a "Gun" to a Magic Fight
Here's the thing about fantasy series, if you apply the logic of having a gun, some things don't make sense. When the Brakebills students were going after The Beast in Season 1, Margo was very quick to point out that things would be much simpler if they could use a gun. In fact, she went beyond just a pitch she actually brought a gun on their trip.
When Her Uterus Saved the Day
In Season 4, a book called The Binder would only show its text if it had blood. Margo's solution was a bloody tampon. When Penny seemed rattled by the idea of menstrual blood, Margo came back with the perfect one-liner to shut him up.
Facing a God While Her Idenity Was Erased
Okay, another Janet moment. Let's be honest if Margo had been Margo and not Janet at this moment, she probably would have told Ember to go procreate with himself. Janet's reaction is almost sweet in comparison.
When She Tried to Get Quentin to Play It Cool
Alumni Week at Brakebills was serious business, and we got a glimpse of just how seriously Margo took things when she spotted a mentor. She was not willing to let anything stand in her way, even Quentin's concern about his father getting diagnosed with cancer.
Telling Eliot's Grandma to Piss Off
At the end of Season 4, after using the ice ax on Eliot she was determined not to lose him. So as Eliot lay there bleeding she told him off in true Margo fashion; even cursing out grandma in the process.
Creating the New Desert Order
"Welcome to the new desert order, it's gonna suck for you!" Margo says at the end of The Magicians Season 4 Episode 10, "All That Hard, Glossy Armor." After a truly transformative character episode, Margo isn't putting up with anything. She's freed some so-called demons after finding out their true nature and upset the power balance. But that's all in a day's work for this badass.
Calling Out Racist Color Correction
You know when you see a color correction that looks whitewashed and you wonder who approved this? Now we have an answer -- not Janet!
Realizing There's Something Wrong with the Room
Margo has always had a hard armor to her, and she's very self-aware of what she projects to the world. Her simple statement about how she and Eliot are typically the most snobby people in the room reflects that, and yet also makes her a little more relatable.
Not Having Fillory's Sexist Patriarchy
When Fillory had its first election for High King and Eliot wanted to run alone since he thought there should be a pair of balls attached, Margo was not happy. Margo listed a host of issues commonly found of Earth just to illustrate how far Fillory had to go.
Kidnapping Fairy Babies
Margo is quite a quick thinker when she has to be. Stealing fairy eggs was a new level of devious during The Magicians Season 3.
Calling Her Husband a Psychotic Fetus
Fillory just loves to throw a wrench into your plans. Margo wasn't sold on being in an arranged marriage, but she was less sold when her betrothed was killed and his younger brother stepped in. She was even less enthused by his eagerness to consummate their marriage. Calling him a psychotic fetus may have seemed strong, but there were worse words she could have used.
When She Was Done with the Fairies
Margo was not having it when it came to the fairy queen, and who can blame her. In this moment she decides that she's flat out done with fairies and their games, and the moniker of "tinkerbitch" is just so fitting.
