The Witcher Season 2 was marvelously made. Following her sudden disappearance in Season 1, the trailer featured Yennefer and her survival after the Battle of Sodden Hill. We also saw that the sorceress and Fringilla were captured and taken as prisoners. But the question is, who managed to kidnap the two powerful women, and how will they escape?
Television has seen numerous fantasy shows. Each creates a mystical world of their various surrounding mythologies. And among them, Netflix’s The Witcher continues to grow both within the story and popularity with time. The Witcher series is adapted from the stories written by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski. The Witcher was originally a series of novels and short stories. The brand gained huge admiration after it was turned into video games, a movie, and a TV series in Poland in 2001 and 2002.
In 2019, Netflix gained the approval to turn The Witcher into a TV show. And that was when the franchise earned its first English adaptation. Before the show’s season release, another season of the series received approval to renew. Making success inevitable. Netflix did a remarkable job in fleshing out Sapkowski’s characters. It took the source material and journeyed the titular characters through a unique story. The narrative was strangely non-linear as it followed the lead characters in different places and points in time.
And towards the end of Season 1, we saw the three of them crossing paths with each other. The Witcher series tells the story of Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill), the title monster hunter; Yennefer of Vengerberg (Anya Chalotra), a powerful sorceress; and Ciri (Freya Allan), the crown princess of Cintra. The three of them a tree e all set to reprise their roles in The Witcher Season 2. However, as far as Yennefer is concerned, the details about her role in these new episodes are still a mystery.
So far, all we know about The Witcher Season 2 is that it is heavily based on the book called Blood of Elves. Ans, the story will begin with Geralt taking Ciri to Kaer Morhen. Kaer Morhen is the old keep where the witchers from the School of the Wolf trained, including Geralt.
At Kaer Morhen, Geralt and his friends, meaning other fellow witchers like Eskel (Basil Eidenbenz), Lambert (Paul Bullion), Coën (Yasen Atour), and their mentor Vesemir (Kim Bodnia), will train Ciri in combat. In a different part of the Continent, Jaskier (Joey Batey) will be in captivity. At the same time, Yennefer will fall into the traps of the Nilfgaardian army, who will then take her as a prisoner. But the twist in the plot is that another race will attack them by surprise. And they will eventually take Yennefer and fellow sorceress Fringilla (Mimi Ndiweni) with them. These kidnappers will be a group of elves.
Through some tiny shots from the official trailer of The Witcher Season 2, it is clear that Yennefer and Fringilla have been kidnapped. And the trailer also shows their captors to be elves. It is important to note that there is a brief clip showing an unknown location shown right before the elves take Yennefer and Fringilla with them in the trailer. The Witcher fans believe that its place is the Thanedd Island, apparently an important location in the Witcher universe.
Thanedd Island is located in the bay northwest of Gors Velen in Temeria. From that point, it is connected by a bridge. And it is divided into three main areas: Loxia, Garstand, and Aretuza. Aretuza, as we already know, is the magic academy Yennefer and Fringilla met at. We can assume that the elves will take the sorceresses to Thanedd Island. The intention behind capturing the two is still not quite certain.
But there are other shots in The Witcher Season 2 trailer that show Aretuza and Tissaia de Vries (MyAnna Buring) reuniting with Yennefer. This scenario will probably take place at the academy. Hence, there is a possibility that Tissaia and other sorceresses will set out on a mission to rescue Yennefer and Fringilla. And later, bring them back to their believed haven in Aretuza.
The Witcher Season 2’s release date is drawing closer. And fans are long anticipating to watch the stories of their favorite characters, Geralt, Ciri, and Yennefer, unfold. Several new faces are joining the team to play very interesting roles. But of course, what thrills the fans most is the mystery revolving around the capture of Yennefer and Fringilla. Not to forget the inclusion of elves. Another exciting turn would be to see the two sorceresses in each other’s company. And to figure out whether they will end up forming a friendship or if it will only make their rivalry worse.
