For The Witcher’s season three’s first five episodes, there are spoilers in this article.

After a break of more than a year and a half, the famous fantasy series The Witcher’s is back for a much-awaited new season. This will be Henry Cavill’s final appearance as the titular monster-hunter Geralt of Rivia before Liam Hemsworth assumes the primary role. In order to get viewers ready for the release of the last three episodes on July 27, Netflix released the first five episodes of the third season of the show on Thursday.

As they journey across the Continent in an effort to fend off numerous threats, Geralt, Yennefer of Vengerberg (Anya Chalotra), and Princess Cirilla “Ciri” of Cintra (Freya Allan) test the bonds of their improvised family as Ciri continues to train to hone her magic and defend herself. Season 3 begins with Geralt, Yennefer, and Ciri.

But with everyone looking for Ciri, including the rogue fire mage Rience (Sam Woolf), the elven queen Francesca (Mecia Simson), and the Nilfgaardian emperor Emhyr “The White Flame” var Emreis (Bart Edwards), who we now know is actually Ciri’s father Duny who was thought to have died, Geralt and Yennefer quickly decide they will need some reinforcements to protect their ward.

In the hopes that Tissaia (MyAnna Buring), Ciri’s instructor at the magical academy Aretuza, will be able to assist in teaching the young witch how to manage her talents, Yennefer accompanies Ciri there while Geralt searches for Rience. As it comes to light that a much older and more powerful mage is not only pulling Rience’s strings but is also responsible for the disappearance of a number of half-elven Aretuza novices, Yennefer proposes holding a Conclave of Mages to unite the Brotherhood, the organization that governs the Continent’s magic users, and the rulers of the Northern Kingdoms in the coming war against Nilfgaard, and suss out the mysterious figure who’s really behind these evil deeds.

How does The Witcher’s season three’s first episode end?
Geralt and Yennefer devise a strategy to expose the wizard’s betrayal because they think Stregobor (Lars Mikkelsen), a mage with a history of experimenting on young girls and loathing elves, is their main suspect. While Geralt and Istredd (Royce Pierreson) divert attention from the ball, Yennefer infiltrates Stregobor’s office and breaks into his safe. There, she discovers a cache of belongings for the abducted novices as well as the missing Book of Monoliths, an ancient elven book that supposedly “holds the key to traveling between spheres.”

Stregobor may be exposed and detained rather easily, though.

Geralt is informed that he must choose a side in the impending battle during ominous conversations with Redanian spymaster Dijkstra (Graham McTavish) and Vilgefortz (Mahesh Jadu), the strong mage romantically involved with Tissaia. After putting the puzzle pieces together, Geralt and Yennefer realize that Vilgefortz is the real villain at work and wants Ciri for his own purposes.

As Geralt leaves the room to the sounds of screams and discovers a knife put to his throat by Dijkstra, Yennefer stays behind to try to find Tissaia and tell her about Vilgefortz. Witcher, you need to have picked a side, Dijkstra informs him.

Vilgefortz is a pivotal opponent who gives Geralt a hard run for his money in his quest to defend Ciri in Andrzej Sapkowski’s books, on which The Witcher is based, even though the mage’s true motivations are still unknown.

“Our villain has been engaged in a protracted game. In April, creator Lauren Schmidt Hissrich told Netflix’s Tudum that the game would last for decades. Since we first began writing season 1, [the writers] definitely knew who the bad guy was. As a result, the authors have been playing a very lengthy game, and there have been instances in the past where a character appeared to act in a way that was completely out of character or that was inconsistent with what the fans believed the character to be in The Witcher’s
