Witcher Season 2 Episode 8 Analysis: Family // with On the Path podcast


Welcome to our episode by episode analysis of The Witcher, where we focus on character psychology and relationships.

Fransesca snaps and goes on a murderous baby-killing rampage; Ciri goes into a Cintra trance while Voleth Meir, possessing her body, battles the Witchers with some scary looking basilisks. Yennefer tries to help, with little effect. The battle ends with a trip to another realm and an encounter with the Wild Hunt.   Everyone wants Ciri, and we receive the shock of the season with a big reveal: the White Flame is none other than Duny.
