Villain Spotlight Series: Mother Gothel

Mother Gothel is one of those sinister villains who lures people in with promises of hugs and delicious hazelnut soup. We know from the beginning that she’s evil, but she’s such a good liar that she still pulls the wool over our eyes at times. However, when she starts with the backhanded compliments it becomes very clear that she’s sinister to the core. Let’s review some of Mother Gothel’s best (and worst) moments.

 

Mother Gothel is just utterly evil from the moment we see her.
