Show suffers from lack of a compelling antagonist IMHO. It just strikes me as way too clumsy the way they try to play up the Earl and his henchman (who reminds me a bit too much of the Sicilian from The Princess Bride)as great machivellian schemers.
The Earl's wife/woman probably has the most potential in the "bad guy/girl" department. But so far it's mostly untapped.

The brother is going to be a huge enemy.
