Season two of Netflix’s The Witcher has been out for nearly a week and has taken the world by storm. Who could ignore the fact that Geralt (Henry Cavill) and Ciri (Freya Allan) are so in sync with their facial features? Plus, how could we forget Jaskier’s (Joey Batey) power ballad? Currently adding that one to every playlist I have. But just like season one, season two brings with it a plethora of new questions that have yet to be answered within the series. So without further ado, let’s discuss what questions we have heading into season three!
DISCLAIMER: There will be more spoilers contained in this post than times Geralt sighs in both seasons one and two of The Witcher. Okay, maybe not more than that, but definitely a lot. If you haven’t taken the chance to binge season two – get to it! You can find both seasons here on Netflix. Also, we know that most of these questions might be answered in the books or games, but this is strictly for the TV series. So please – don’t spoil for others!
Where will this new journey lead Geralt, Yennefer and Ciri?
At the end of season two, Geralt decides it’s time for them to leave Kaer Morhen (for its safety, of course) and head out into the world. Of course, he is dragging Ciri along with him and Yennefer (Anya Chalotra) to teach her. But where will they go from here? I am sure that they will spend a bit of time camping out in the woods, but something is going to draw them into some kind of drama. Because who in The Witcher can avoid that? I hope that we will see Nenneke (Adjoa Andoh) again if only briefly, to collect some training supplies.
Will we see the other Witchers again?
With Geralt leaving Kaer Morhen behind, are we saying goodbye to Vesemir (Kim Bodnia) and the other Witchers? We all wish this season could have spent a bit more time building up the other Witcher’s, Lambert (Paul Bullion) and Coën (Yasen Atour) in particular. I hope that the third season will bring them back into the fold with an additional backstory or two to help build up the world outside of just Geralt, Ciri and Yennefer. I can’t imagine that Vesemir is willing to watch one of his sons just head off and face whatever is coming alone. Plus, with more Witchers, we get more exciting fight scenes!
How did Duny live?
In a surprise twist that came in the final moments of The Witcher‘s season, two finale was that The White Flame is actually Ciri’s father Duny (Bart Edwards). It helps to answer a few questions, like who the mysterious White Flame was and why Nilfgaard is after Ciri. But, it opens up one big question – how did Duny survive? We assume that after his “death,” Duny became The White Flame and freed Nilfgaard before setting his eyes on Ciri. But could this also mean that Ciri’s mom is alive? I actually don’t think this is the case. When Ciri is locked away in her mind by Voleth Meir (Ania Marson), we watch her mother disintegrate, but Duny doesn’t. I imagine this was a spoiler that he was still alive.
What will happen to Jaskier?
One of my favorite characters from this season was Graham McTavish‘s Dijkstra. The true mastermind behind the Redanian empire, he sets quite a lot of events into motion thanks to his subtle meddling. In the final episode, he decides that it’s time for Jaskier to learn who his benefactor is. I imagine that Dijkstra is the financial support behind Jaskier’s time as the Sandpiper and was actually helping the elves sneak out. I assume that Dijkstra also knows that Jaskier is close with Geralt, who is protecting Ciri. It would make sense that he would want to use Jaskier to get close to them in an attempt to take Ciri.
Is Ciri really safe?
Honestly, I think we already know the answer to this question. No, she isn’t. But, we still need to discuss this. So many people are after her at this point, including Tissaia (MyAnna Burning) and the countries of the north, whoever Lydia (Aisha Fabienne Ross) and Rience (Chris Fulton) are working for, Redanian, Nilfgaard, the Elves and the Wraiths of Mörhogg. I would bet that by the time season three comes around, we will learn that there are even more groups after her. Season two really set up and great Ciri chase that I suspect will occur in season three. But how will this all play out? Will we see another war between all the parties or several smaller attacks on her and the others?
