There's nothing worse than meeting someone who seems nice, but ultimately turns out to be a terrible person. TV is filled with these kinds of two-faced people, but they still manage to surprise viewers when their true nature is revealed. Here are some of the best-loved "jerks in sheep's clothing" from popular TV shows. Spoilers ahead!
Daniel Hardman, "Suits"
When fans first met Daniel Hardman, they knew two things. First, that Harvey hated him. Secondly, Hardman had just lost his wife to cancer. It seemed like Hardman was truly a kind, reformed man. But oh how wrong the fans were…Hardman was just as nasty and manipulative as he was before his wife's death. He may look sweet and unassuming, but this is one book you should never judge by its cover.
Jasmine (played by "Suits" star Gina Torres) was a supernatural creature who looked like a sweet, beautiful woman. But her pretty exterior hid her true nature: she was quite literally a rotting corpse, who wanted only to eat people and enslave the earth with her sweet disguise. She acts kind when people are falling for her disguise, but strikes out when her true nature is discovered.
Lily, "How I Met Your Mother"
Lily is generally a sweet person, but she has a dark side, as seen in the episode "The Front Porch." In the episode, Lily reveals that she intentionally broke up Karen and Ted. In fact, she's sabotaged seven of Ted's past relationships, just because she didn't think that Ted was destined to be with those women for the long term. Lily's so-called "Front Porch" test is a tough one to pass, apparently. Her heart may be in the right place, but she's still a major jerk for doing what she did.
Emily, "The Big Bang Theory"
In one episode, Penny hooks Raj up with her friend Emily from yoga class. Raj has a pathological fear of talking to women (unless he's been drinking), so dating Emily makes sense. She's deaf, so his fear of talking to girls shouldn't actually impact their relationship. Emily seems sweet at first, but her true motivations for dating Raj are soon revealed. She's just with Raj because of his massive wealth, and only wants to live a pampered life with tons of presents. She's great at pretending to be sweet, but she's just a self-serving gold digger.
