There are two kinds of loners—those who chose to be and those who don’t. Geralt of Rivia falls under both categories in Netflix’s The Witcher. He was forced into a life of monster hunting, but chooses to keep it up. He’s forced to depend on and be with people for his livelihood, but chooses to not get comfy with friends and lovers.
By the end of the first episode, he chooses to stop someone who gets innocents wrapped up in her warranted yet twisted quest for revenge. When Geralt is forced to kill her and the guards, he’s accused of senseless slaughter and labeled “The Butcher of Blaviken;” the town ostracizes him for a dilemma compounded with lies.
