The Witcher has been captivating Netflix viewers since it dropped on 20 December, and now viewers are waiting patiently to see what becomes of those of The Continent.

Throughout the course of the season, viewers waited patiently to see what was to come of Geralt (Henry Cavill), Yennefer (Anya Chalotra) and Princess Ciri (Freya Allen), whose lives were destined to collide.

However, it took until the season finale, Much More, to discover just how that came to be, with each introduction of our three main characters actually playing out as separate timelines.

But finally things are beginning to intertwine, with Ciri’s mission to find the monster-slayer-for-hire and adventurer finally successful after they meet in the woods after he fled capture in Cintra.

Geralt, who suffered a nasty bite while in a fight with a monster, was saved by a man whose wife, unknown to them both, had taken in Ciri after she fled the castle grounds on the demand of her grandmother Queen Calanthe (Jodhi May).

With an inquisitive look, Ciri pulls away from Geralt, and asked him: ‘Who’s Yennefer?’

Yennefer is someone that Geralt had met before (and become very, very acquainted with) during the course of the show, even possibly falling in love with her.

However, running from her feelings, she became convinced that he had used a wish on a djinn (a genie-like smoke monster) to get her to fall for him too, and fled in anger.

But she returned to Cintra at the request of her former teachers to help save Cintra as Nilfgaardian soldiers stormed the kingdom, and was last seen trying (and failing) to keep the castle from siege.

So where is she now?

Well, we’re guessing that’s probably where the show is going to be starting off when it returns in season two, especially as the magical Yen has a habit of making her presence known to all.

There’s also the constant threat of Nilfgaard Black Knight, Cahir (Eamon Farren) who had made it his mission to track down Ciri, and seemed to think that the world’s fate rested with her.

No pressure then for a 16-year-old.

The Witcher is available now on Netflix.
