Exactly. Even the internal strife amongst them in this episode was about their differing ideas of how to go about maintaining said loyalty. Who could've imagined this side to these characters when we first saw them nonchalantly and unrepentantly slaughtering the whole of the auction house's audience? Broadening their characters indeed and thankfully so because villains with redeeming qualities usually make for more interesting stories in my book.
