The first season of ‘The Witcher’ ended months ago, but that hasn’t stopped fans from seeking answers to all the questions it left them with.
It was only last year when Henry Cavill donned the armour of Geralt of Rivia, a pale-haired, yellow-eyed, monster slayer for hire. It was a pleasant change from his previous role of the red-caped Superman in the DC Extended Universe! Since playing Superman, Henry Cavill has embraced more complex roles that put his acting prowess on display and not just his muscles. He was Sherlock Holmes in the hit Netflix film ‘Enola Holmes‘, but he won hearts as ‘The Witcher’. The adaptation is based on Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski’s fantasy novel series and the video game of the same name. The first season introduced us to the major characters aka Geralt, Yennefer the sorceress (Anya Chalotra), and Princess Ciri (Freya Allan).
- Did Yennefer really die in ‘The Witcher’?
- What is the connection between Geralt and Ciri?
- What was Geralt’s last wish?
The end of the series is still unknown as it does things differently and isn’t entirely adapted from the books. It’s only the beginning, but The Witcher season 1 itself has left fans with some glaring questions that they can’t wait to find answers to. Keep reading as we discuss 5 of the biggest ones!
Did Yennefer really die in ‘The Witcher’?
One of the biggest cliffhangers the first season left us with is the fate of Yennefer the sorceress! Fans were conflicted about whether the character would be alive in ‘The Witcher’ Season 2, but are now certain about her return. It initially appeared that she sacrificed her life during the Battle of Sodden by unleashing her chaos, but that’s just one possibility. Maybe Yennefer just needs some time to heal after harnessing the fire that drained her of her powers?
There’s a chance she really could be dead, but she can be resurrected too! It’s been made clear that there’s magic in this universe so we wouldn’t be surprised to see that happen. Season 2 might also focus on Yennefer trying to find a purpose in life, and will tell fans if she’s still finding a way to have children of her own.
What is the connection between Geralt and Ciri?
Fans are aware that Geralt and Ciri’s fates are intertwined, they just don’t know how that is. The series hinted at Ciri’s powers being able to cause an apocalypse, with the prophecy being revealed in episode 7. There’s a lot of mystery surrounding that plotline, and it’s also made ‘The Witcher‘ fans wonder if Geralt could train Ciri in the future.
There have also been doubts about Ciri becoming a female Witcher which, at the moment, seems unlikely but there’s season 2 to explore that! Destiny has been an underlying theme of the series and will surely make an appearance in the upcoming season.
How powerful is Ciri?
Ciri is one of the most powerful figures in ‘The Witcher’ universe, but the extent of her powers are unknown. She has Elder Blood, which means she has powerful magic that can make her discharge high levels of energy.
We’ve seen how deadly her abilities can be but there’s more to it than what may seem. Fans have learned that Ciri is important to the story, but no one knows just how much. The young princess is afraid of her abilities and the consequences of them, but a new season might see her learn to harness them. Fans are also curious about the prophecy announced by Ciri during her ominous trance towards the end of The Witcher season 1.
What happened after the big battle of Sodden Hill?
The battle between the mages and the Nilfgaardian empire saw a victory for the former after Yennefer’s sacrifice. ‘The Witcher’ didn’t depict the aftermath of the battle though, which fans expected to see. So, what happened with the Nilfgaardians after they lost? Are they preparing to attack again when the mages least expect it? ‘The Witcher’ Season 2 will have to answer that question.
If they are preparing their forces to attack the North once again, will Yennefer be able to play saviour in time? Fans are expecting the upcoming season to shed some light on the aftermath of the battle’s events.
What was Geralt’s last wish?
In episode 5 of the series, Geralt is granted three wishes after becoming the master of a Djinn. The first two wishes are revealed and we know they played a role in saving Yennefer’s life, but what about the third?
Fans have all kinds of theories about what Geralt could’ve asked for. While the show’s fans are still waiting for the wish to be uncovered during the new season, fans of the book are sure it has something to do with dying by Yennefer’s side. It’s a mystery in both the Netflix adaptation and the fantasy novels, but maybe season 2 will bring some clarity!
