Netflix has teased fans before The Witcher releases. The streaming service has been teasing the upcoming season of the show, however, the recent tease is much more than we anticipated.
The show has had a poem which is a Christmas-themed slay-ride celebration. And there was an interview with one of Geralt of Rivia’s horses. The show has now teased the first page of the season two script as an early Christmas or rather Witchmas present for fans.
It is set at night in a small mountain town and shows a merchantman and his wife as well as his daughter seeking lodging. In a voiceover, Geralt, played by Henry Cavill says, “You dogged my every footstep. But struck down others I passed on my way. Why?”
The scene shows the merchant going to inquire about a room at an inn and gets no response. However, he hears a loud scream and turns to find his wife gone as his daughter is covered in blood.
The merchant runs towards his carriage but gets attacked by an unknown monster who is pulled away to his death. Geralt’s voiceover then says: “I was meant to end up alone, wasn’t I? So I would finally begin to be afraid?” while the little girl is left screaming and running towards the only sign of life she can see.
The script read, “The little girl stares into darkness and hears….THE SOUND OF FLESH BEING RENT APART, BONES CRACKING, SUCKLING…. It is unclear who the little girl is neither does it reveal the whereabout of Geralt.
The scene does not tell us much as it leaves us wondering where Geralt is between all of this chaos. The Witcher season two is currently under production but Henry is injured and is taking a break until he recovers. He had a minor leg muscle injury on set while he was filming.
