What happened in The Witcher season two?
The first half of the season shows Ciri and Geralt travelling to Kaer Morhen and the world’s most weird father-daughter relationship. As for Yennefer, everyone thinks she is dead but spoiler alert, she isn’t. Yennefer has lost her magic to a trapped demon, the deathless mother. The battle between the Nilfgaard and Cintra introduces elven sorceress Francesca Findabair who forms an alliance with the Nilfgaardian Mage Fringilla. However, when Francesca is found to be pregnant, a spanner is thrown in the works. On the other side in Kaer Morhen Vesemir finds out that Ciri’s powers are because of her possession of the elder blood, presumed to be a very long-extinct mutagen ingredient for creating new witchers. Despite the dramatic buildup to Season 2, we also had some heart-wrenching scenes. Yennefer ultimately returns to Aretuza, and we have an emotional reunion with mother-figure Tissaia (who also presumed her dead).

She insists on being a subject in a one thousand-year-old witcher-making process using her own blood which Geralt stops at the right time. Geralt comes to know that Yennefer is alive. Jennifer finds out from the deathless mother what she needs to do to get her powers back is deliver Ciri to. Surprisingly, Geralt, Ciri, and Yenn run into each other at the Temple of Melitele where Ciri is meant to be learning magic from the priestess Nenneke. In the highly anticipated finale, Francesca’s elven baby is murdered, causing pain it releases the deathless mother who heads off to possess Ciri.

Why you should watch The Witcher?
The Witcher has a high entertainment value, and the series will keep you wanting more. The pacing is good despite having many characters to focus on. The Witcher also explores real-life complexities like racism, misogyny, and political power struggles between different kingdoms. The show’s dark world makes it a lot of fun for fantasy fans. The fight scenes are exceptionally well done, and the script is at times funny. The Witcher has a lot going for it, but sadly it suffers from some glaring flaws that are hard to ignore. The show’s biggest flaw is that its characters can be difficult to connect with because they all seem so cold on the surface. The cast does not do much to help this problem since many of them give wooden performances at times.
The plot also feels confusing and disjointed due to how many different storylines there are in each episode. The Witcher’s plot can be very convoluted, and the show only has eight episodes to get you invested in what is happening. The show does not do enough to make its characters interesting or engaging, which makes it hard for viewers to care about them. The main character of the show is Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill), who is a monster hunter who uses his supernatural abilities to hunt down creatures that are terrorizing.
