‘The Witcher’ world has expanded a considerable amount in the first four episodes of Season 2 and fans are getting to know a lot of new things. We also got to see how Geralt (Henry Cavill) is trying to teach Ciri (Freya Allen) about protecting each other and fighting the evil monsters.

Another thing we learned is that she was the one who toppled the monoliths and that’s why a new sub-species of monsters have entered the world. This forces Geralt to learn about what happened and how the monoliths cracked. Triss helps Geralt in finding a mage and teleports him to Istredd (Royce Pierreson) to find the truth. On the other hand, Vesemir tells the truth about elder blood to Ciri. She is ready to do what it takes to make more Witchers, but she has a condition.

The mutagen that would be made with her blood should be tried on her first, meaning she wants to be the first Witcher created from the mutagen. Initially, Vesemir says no to the proposition. However, Ciri tells her that she has destroyed so many things in her life, and for once, she was to do something that heals people. Triss takes her blood and makes a sample. Surprisingly, it works and her blood can be used to make more Witchers. After seeing the process getting successful, Ciri says she needs a moment to prepare. Triss gets really angry after knowing that she wants to be the first one to be tested.

Triss tells her that she doesn’t have to do it, but Ciri says that it is important for her to do this. The sorceress tells her that she can use a technique to take her into the deepest memories of her mind and see who she really is. They both reach there and Ciri sees everyone she has ever met, including her parents. However, Triss feels that something is wrong because people are able to see her and that’s now how the technique works.

She meets her parents and her mom is able to see her. Triss tells her it’s time to leave. But as soon as they start leaving, someone calls Ciri and they are teleported in a field with white light. They see an Elven woman with a baby and she’s bleeding. Triss tries helping her but she chokes Triss and talks to Ciri. She calls her a “seed that bursts into flame” and also reveals that she would be the reason for their downfall.

Triss loudly calls Ciri and she screams Geralt’s name. The tree inside the Kaer Morhen castle also gets cracked and Geralt gets to know that Ciri is in trouble.

They both return to the present world and Triss is feeling really scared after what happened. Ciri tries to calm her down but Triss tells her that everything that’s been happening, it’s because of her. She is the “seed that bursts into flame” and ends the world. Ciri is shocked to learn that and leaves the room.

Is she really the one who destroys the world? Let’s see how her journey moves forward.
