'The Witcher' Season 2 Episode 3: Ciri gets a taste of ‘brutal’ Witcher training
Ciri wants to be like Geralt, but she doesn't have the patience to go through process. What comes next is not pretty
We all know that Ciri (Freya Allen) is destined to be something bigger than what she is at this moment and she would have to do rigorous training to become a lethal assassin. However, she doesn’t actually know her true potential and what kind of power she possesses. So now, it’s up to Geralt (Henry Cavill) to make her understand how important it is for her to protect herself.
At the end of Episode 2, we got to see that Geralt has started training Ciri and wants her to be strong. Episode 3 follows the same line and sees Ciri practicing her sword moves. However, she is not able to complete the process properly. There’s always a moment when the sword falls from her hand, forcing Geralt to say that she needs rest. Ciri is adamant that she needs to continue her practice, to which, Geralt replies that if she doesn’t take a rest then she’ll never be able to get the results she wants.
Ciri gets annoyed and goes away. The princess of Cintra meets one of the other Witchers named Coen and he says that you can’t become a Witcher if you continue to try your moves with a wooden sword. He says that she needs to do the proper Witcher training to become one. Coen takes her to the place where every single of them has trained. For the first few attempts, Ciri is unable to get through the obstacles that come in front of her. However, she manages to pass most of them when one of the Witchers calls Geralt and tells him that he needs to see this.
Ciri is performing well there and most of the Witchers are applauding her because of her determination. Ciri reaches the final spot and she just had to jump on the wooden plank to complete the first part of the training, but she fails to do so and Geralt says, ‘almost’.
The entire sequence where Ciri trains are shot masterfully and shows how badly she wants to train to become something similar to Geralt. Will she be able to finish the Witcher training? Or she would have to give up the dream of becoming a Witcher.
