When “The Witcher” returns to streaming service Netflix in December 2021 with new episodes, Geralt von Riva (Henry Cavill) will bring his ward Ciri (Freya Allan) to the witcher festival Kaer Morhen. After the Battle of Sodden, the young princess is no longer safe in Cintra.
After their arrival, they spend the winter there. Geralt’s sorcerer friends Eskel (Basil Eidenbenz), Coën (Yasen Atour) and Lambert (Paul Bullion), as well as Geralt’s mentor Vesemir (Kim Bodnia), are also on-site and help Ciri to complete the sorcerer’s training. But Geralt also mourns Yennefer (Anya Chalotra) in “The Witcher” Season 2, who he thinks fell during the Battle of Sodden.
We already know from the trailers for “The Witcher” season 2 that Yennefer survived, but Geralt doesn’t know. And so it comes about that Geralt gets involved in a liaison with Triss Merigold (Anna Shaffer).
Video game fans already know that Geralt and Triss regularly have a fuss, a highly controversial storyline since it doesn’t appear in the books like this. In the Netflix series, two elements from a book and a video game are combined.
In the third chapter of the witcher book “The Legacy of the Elves” by Andrzej Sapkowski, there is a small moment in Kaer Morhen when Triss visits Geralt and Ciri there. She hugs Geralt and promises him not to leave him alone. You can read a lot into this moment, but actually, it stands for itself. Netflix now wants to take this scene a step further.
A sex scene between the two is said to occur during Triss’ visit to the Witcher Festival. Geralt can hardly be blamed for believing that his love, Yennefer is dead. But that Triss knows that Yennefer survived as possible. The character’s video game and book versions could certainly play with Geralt, but what about the series version?
