It’s not smart marketing, but I’m leading with the disclaimers:
- I am not a TV critic
- I don’t plan to put too much time into this.
On the plus side, I will also link to recaps written by people who do this for a living (or at least put more time into it than I do) at the bottom of the post.
So here are my rankings of the characters who were the biggest jerks (or tools, louts, cretins, bounders, sleazeballs, etc.) in Episode 1 of Season 3 of Game of Thrones (“Valar Dohaeris”). Your mileage may vary:
5. Melisandre: Taunting Davos over his dead son. Not cool.
4. Joffrey Baratheon: This is a good ranking for this perennial Top-2 contender.
