The Witcher fans have been waiting for two years since the first series came out on Netflix in 2019. But the wait is now over as the second outing of the fantasy series was released on Friday, December 17 on the streaming service. Express.co.uk has everything you need to know about the end of The Witcher season two.

What happened at the end of The Witcher season 2?

Yennefer agreed to work for Voleth Meir

Yennefer (Anya Chalotra) had previously lost her powers and was desperate to get them back.

This is when the Deathless Mother, Voleth Meir stepped in and said if she brought Princess Ciri (Freya Allan) to her, she would restore her magic.

Yennefer agreed to do her bidding and convinced Ciri that the only way she could be reunited with Geralt (Henry Cavill) was to return to Cintra.

Little did she know that her supposed protector was leading the youngster to her doom.

Ciri becomes possessed

Yennefer changes her mind after spending time with Ciri and realising how special she was.

But it was too late as Geralt sent Ciri back to the Witcher keep of Kaer Morhen to try and protect her.

Unfortunately, he wasn’t able to as on the way to the fortress, Ciri breathed in a red-glowing substance which meant Voleth Meir was able to control her body.

So while Yennefer had decided she wanted to do the right thing, it was too late.

Geralt had a quandary

The possessed princess starting killing members of Kaer Morhen with some of them trying to stop her.

Geralt joined them which then led Ciri to summon an army of basilisks.

He had to convince Vesermir that she was too special to kill but he argued they had to make a similar choice with Eskel (Basil Eidenbenz) back in episode two.

Eskel was causing destruction and they ended up choosing to kill him, making them question if they needed to do the same with Ciri.

Yennefer was ready to sacrifice herself

While the fighting was going on, Yennefer concocted a potion to separate Voleth Meir from Ciri.

With Geralt’s love, Ciri started to try and defy the Deathless Mother but filled with guilt, Yennefer enticed her away from the princess.

Voleth Meir needed a vessel so Yennefer slit her wrists, ready to give up her life for Ciri.

Realising there was another home to go to, she vacated Ciri’s body.

Voleth Meir went to another realm

Geralt soon realised Ciri had the ability to open up portals to bring in monsters as she did with the basilisk army.

When she opened up the portal, Voleth Meir went through, leaving the rest of them to breathe a sigh of relief.

But when they encountered the other realm, a man riding a horse appeared and said: “Join the Elder Blood, starry-eyed

Daughter of Chaos. Join our hunt. Your place is among us.”

This is expected to be explored further in the upcoming third season.

The Witcher seasons 1 and 2 are available to watch on Netflix.
