Chosen One of the Day: Dark Lily from How I Met Your Mother

By Courtney Enlow

Alyson Hannigan is a genre fave and for great reason. She's our beloved witch Willow Rosenberg of course, but she also starred in My Stepmother Is an Alien, and not to mention the teen sci-fi fantasy film American Pie which posited one might experience any pleasure from the insertion of a flute and/or Jason Biggs. But second only to Willow, my favorite Hannigan role is as Lily Aldrin in How I Met Your Mother, a character who was far more supernatural than the theoretically non-genre sitcom would imply. 

Yea, like Willow before her, Lily had the ability to go evil and murder people with her mind. Granted this was more of a fantasy sequence and a full-body flayage was not in the primetime comedy cards (COWARDS) but dammit if Lily couldn't go full Dark Willow when the situation called for it with her "You're Dead to Me" look.

From her own father...

Lily Aldrin: wife, mother, friend, kindergarten teacher, MURDERER WITH HER EYES. Her body count knows no bounds.
