Too bad Geralt: The Witcher wastes his best character in Season 1

The Witcher is, whether or not it is Netflix's big hit today. Being targeted, the series certainly goes through some discussions.

First, fans who knew the games and books discussed the changes the series made to the original mythology. Now another clash begins to emerge on social networks.

Who is really the main character of The Witcher? On paper, this highlight is by Geralt de Rivia (Henry Cavill). But in practice, there are many viewers who believe that Vengerberg's Yennefer (Anya Chalotra) is the most important character in the Netflix series.

In one article, the CBR discussed how The Witcher wastes Yennefer in Season 1, with the sorceress the highlight of the show.

In the original story, Geralt and Yennefer are connected by a Djinn's spell. In the Netflix series, this bow is adapted when Jaskier is attacked by the entity and Yen is the only one who can save it.

From this plot is born the romance between Geralt and Yennefer. When this happens, the witch's story is already developed in the series.

Everyone knows she is a brilliant student of Tissaia (MyAnna Buring) in Aretuza, who struggles to show the value of witches. Yennefer does not accept the command of any man and wants to break the tendency that magicians should only serve kings the way they want.

However, entering the bow with Geralt, The Witcher completely wastes Yennefer. From a brilliant and powerful mage, she becomes the endangered maiden of the monster hunter.

Seconds after the two defeat Djinn, it turns out they have their first relationship. This breaks the development of Yennefer's story and automatically makes it dependent on Geralt's plot.

Not that a relationship is forbidden, but The Witcher could have expected more. The series should have highlighted Yennefer's conflict with wanting to be a mother, with Geralt saying she can never be – besides, for him, the magician is not prepared.

With the bow built, Yennefer, who still tries to reconcile with the past, becomes a supporting piece in Geralt's journey. Proof of this is that the witch does not use as many powers as in games or books, and becomes a helper when the two are summoned to protect a dragon.

Yennefer should be shown much more powerful. Luckily, The Witcher Season 2 is confirmed and under development, which gives the story a chance to give another focus to character.

The Witcher is now available on Netflix.
