I can't see Brigid as a tragic noir villianess like Cora, for example.

 Cora is not exactly the classic femme fatale. She does manipulate Frank, but she apparently has sincere feelings for him and with the Greek gone, she is happy to settle down to a modest lifestyle with the small cafe. I don't think Cora is ever dishonest with him. She is even true to him when grilled by the police. It is Frank that weakens and breaks.
