I just finished season 3, and realized that there is no one left that I can be rooting for. Basically, who is the protagonist?
In season 1, Ned Stark would have been the one to root for (he was noble, honorable, strong, etc), but he made several mistakes and was killed.
In seasons 2 & 3, it seemed that Robb Stark might have been one to root for, but he made so many huge and stupid mistakes (along with his mother) that, frankly, they both “deserved” to die.
Who is left that I, as a viewer, should be identifying with and rooting for? Almost everyone else (besides Arya and Tyrion) seem like total monsters for whom I don’t care if they live or die (and some, like Joffrey, I actively hope they die)
So, what’s your take on this? Is there anyone left to be rooting for? Does a story need to have a protagonist that you root for?
