Netflix has The Witcher Season 2. It’s been a long time since we last saw Geralt in Season 1, which was about a year ago. When The Witcher season 1 ends on Netflix in two years, there will be lots of other TV shows and a global pandemic, so we’ll let you off the hook if it feels like time has shifted a bit.
There’s a lot of social change going on in Season 2. Before you start watching Season 2 of The Witcher, we’ve put together a recap of the last eight episodes and what you need to know to keep up with Season 2.
What happened to Geralt at the end of the first witch season?
It took Geralt several hundred years in this world to get hired in the first season as a helper for magic across the continent. Through his work, he met Jaskier and Yennefer, two powerful wizards with whom he fell in love. Jaskier made Geralt’s story a hit, both on and off the show. The Cintra princess, Cirilla, also thought he accidentally signed up for a surprise birthday party for her daughter.
After this season, Geralt doesn’t care so much about his growing fame as he does about trying to help Ciri leave Cintra and get away from the city. The bad news is that he has to spend time in prison until the city is destroyed. He doesn’t see Ciri in the commotion and walks off alone with Roach.
His hazy thoughts give us the broad outline of his backstory when he is injured by a stray monster in the season finale. This is the story of how his mother, a wizard, left him on the doorstep of a man named Vesemir, who turned him into the Witcher. He was one of three guys who made it through the process.
Who is the main villain in the Witcher world?
The main enemy in the first season of The Witcher is the land of Nilfgaard. Many people in the world of The Witcher thought Nilfgaard was a ‘dirty backwater’. When Emhyr took the throne of the realm, things changed. Emhyr, who was also known as the ‘White Flame’, was a hero to his people, who thought he was a prophet.
During the match, a Nilfgaard soldier said he was already “saved” just before Geralt killed him. Emhyr is also seen as a religious figure, and people think of him that way. First, Fringilla the Magician said, “The White Flame has made me who I am, has given me more strength.”
After promising salvation, Nilfgaard is relentless in his quest to rule the continent. It kills everyone, young and old, with it. It uses dark, forbidden magic and makes the lives of its new subjects so bad that they gratefully accept the little gifts their cruel rulers give them.
In the first season, we see Nilfgaard start taking over other kingdoms in the south for Emhyr so she can rule them better. The Emperor is also very interested in finding Ciri. Because he believes she is the key to Nilfgaard’s true purpose, which could lead to the end of the world. With help of fringilla the wizard and the knight Cahir, he moves to get her away from him. Ciri is nearly caught by Nilfgaard several times in the first season. But Cahir still wants to find her.

The Witcher’s Ciri: who is she and what can she do for the group?
She was important before she was born. During a moment of fate, Geralt took her as his burden because of a rule called “The Law of Surprise.” You should get something in return if you saved someone’s life in the past. But it is not clear what the blessing is. In Geralt’s case, it was a child whose future was tied to his own. He did not want a child at that time. He also did not believe in fate. It was against the will of fate that he left Ciri and his responsibilities for years, but he did it anyway. A risky business in this world.
However, Geralt had known about this fate for a long time. Before claiming his law of surprise, Princess Renfri told him that “the girl in the woods” was his destiny. This is what he was told.
Ciri also has a powerful family “gift”, which is called a “primal power”. Her screams can destroy and kill. They can even crack open the Earth itself, because they are so powerful. She also hears voices calling to her from time to time, but not always. Because she doesn’t have to do anything, she can go into a trance when people call her or she is in danger. When her mother died, she had a gift that her grandmother did not have. Mother and daughter, on the other hand, failed to show that they could control their deadly power.

How Geralt and Ciri end up together
He can’t find Yennefer, but his call reaches Cirilla, who has used strange powers in the first season. During her escape from Cintra, Ciri’s screams cause glasses to move and a monolith to crumble. This is her first time seeing the forces in action. Her grandmother seems to hint at a secret.
Later in the season, Ciri is entranced by another attack that she knows nothing about. Here’s how it goes: First she gives a speech about the end of the world. Then, with a burst of power, she pushes back her attackers, flattening the grass below them. Shortly afterwards, Ciri meets Geralt. The two hug and Ciri asks, “Who is Yennefer?”
