You have to admire the persistence of fictional villains like Professor Moriarty in the Sherlock Holmes series or Lex Luthor in the Superman series.  Heck, you have to admire the Daleks, the Cybermen, the Sontarians, Davros and the Master Super-Villain alliance in the Doctor Who series.  These are villains who are defeated.  Sometimes even killed in battle.  Does the criminal arrest in jail ever last long.  Nope.  Does the dirt nap ever last long.  Nope.  They come back to life, get killed, come back to life, get killed, come back to life, get locked up in jail, escape jail, die, come back to life, get locked up in jail before the jail gets bombed with no survivors, Comes back to life and then escaping jail.  These are villains who are always hounding the hero at the worst possible moments.  These are villains who cry out before making a dramatic escape from justice, "You may have defeated me this time, but the next time we meet, I won't be so lenient!"  And there is always something horrible to prevent the hero from chasing after the creep.  And so the never ending battle against the villain who simply won't stay dead continues.
And as I'm lost in thought about the motion pictures, here are some photos of Ginnifer Goodwin.
