    Watch The Fall so Stella (Gillian Anderson) can teach you how to be a boss. Warning: Some spoilers ahead!

    1. When she was DTF and not subtle about it at all.

    2. When she reminded this idiot of her title.

    3. When she said being a man was a birth defect.

    What makes it badass: She not only answered Jim's question efficiently, but she also made him shut the fuck up.

    4. When she gave zero fucks about other people's judgment.

    5. When Stella reminded Tom of what a hostile world women have to live in because of how men behave.

    8. When Stella refused to categorize women as "innocent," or put them into any other categories for that matter.

    10. When she told a pompous reporter to go fuck himself, basically.

    11. When she told Jim to rethink his life choices.

    12. That time Paul tried to explain his actions and she totally shut him down.

    13. When she scared the shit out of this asshole just by taking a step forward.

    14. When Jim totally crossed the line and she nearly broke his nose.

    15. When Paul, once again, tried to make it seem like his crimes aren't *that* bad, and Stella had none of it.
