I know I’m supposed to feel sympathy for Dmitri, and I’m excited for his character development in the latest mini episode, but I still just can’t find it in me to like him as a person. He just seems overwhelmingly selfish.
Even in his apology to Leon, he kind of aggrandizes his own status as this pioneer or trailblazer. When in reality he bailed on his struggling sister with little notice, failed to even try to keep in contact with her because of his pettiness, then stole an expensive aquatic vehicle from his boss that probably had anthropological value as well, ran this historically significant machine into the ground until it broke, and then has the cojones to complain about the *97-year-old* man who rowed out to sea to save Dmitri’s life.
Dmitri is an interesting character but I don’t think I could stand him as a person.
