In the second last episode, we pick up from where we left. We come across Yennefer, who pitches a bold idea to the Brotherhood, while Geralt strikes a dangerous deal with a ferryman, and Triss digs into the mystery of the missing novices.

At the outset of season 3, things have mostly stayed the same. Everyone on the Continent still seems intent on finding Ciri, played by Freya Allan, a young princess with mysterious powers that could be the key to uniting a vast, violent world. Kings, mages, elves, everyone wants to find her for their own nefarious reasons. Despite this, she is in a somewhat cozy situation living with Geralt and Yennefer, played by Anya Chalotra.

They’re on the run, constantly moving at the slightest sign of trouble, but they’ve also settled into a comfortable, familial routine. They sit around sharing meals and washing dishes while Yenn, who finally has her magic back after being tragically defanged last season, tries to teach Ciri how to control her powers.

After two seasons of nothing but death and betrayal, it’s nice to see the three living a calm, happy life. But, of course, that only lasts for a while.

Outside forces compel the little family unit to split up.
Yenn takes Ciri to the magic academy Aretuza in hopes of both helping her learn and keeping her safe. At the same time, Geralt goes after Rience, played by Chris Fulton, a fire-wielding mage after Ciri at the behest of a mystery benefactor.

There’s still much political maneuvering and treachery to keep track of. The remaining elves are divided over who to align themselves with and the best way to get revenge on humanity; the kingdom of Redania, thanks to cunning spymaster Dijkstra played by Graham McTavish, and his partner Phillipa played by Cassie Clare, who spent most of season 2 as an owl finds itself in the thick of everything; the Brotherhood of Sorcerers is struggling with infighting; and the White Flame played by Bart Edwards continues his quest to unite the entire Continent under his rule.

That’s not even counting characters who find themselves in completely new situations, like the exiled mage Fringilla played by Mimi Ndiweni, who is now an always-drunk poison tester.
We have been gluing our eyes to the screen on the edge to always think about what will come next. Probably all our answers will be solved in the last episode of “The Witcher” season 3, volume 1.
