That is the antagonist. The protagonist is the main character, aka the "hero/heroine"; the antagonist is the source of conflict (drama), aka the "villain."

Wonderful coincidence--just as we're discussing this, 20/20 ran a piece on polyamory last night! They sandwiched it between E L James and male escorts, but the polyamory was very much about the love, very much average Joes and Janes who happen to have loves outside their own marriages.

Now, if only Shonda Rhimes was brave enough to just hook some of the potential triads/vees on Grey's UP already... I mean, there's a lesbian, a bi woman, and a baby daddy co-parenting happily. Would be a tiny step.

Especially in screenwriting! Very few screenplays are read if they're not submitted using the correct font, even if they've got three-act structure and the hero's journey down perfectly.

Can attest to similar pressure in publishing. Oy, you picky bastards, be glad it's legible...
