Geralt of Rivia is The Witcher Season 2 (Netflix) who must save a royal girl from a high-ranking member of the army of Niflgaard Cahir. She is also pursued by the sorceress Fringilla Viggo. There is one place where Geralt can be safe. This is a place where witchers like him live. And it is called the fortress of Kaer Morhen.

The Witcher series contains a large number of violent scenes. In the old days, few serials had this property. Of course, we are talking about such series as “The Amazing Journeys of Hercules” and “Xena – Warrior Princess”. There was also “Conan”, which was played by a colorful actor who is not inferior to Schwarzenegger. Also a lunchtime series was Sinbad, with a charismatic actor. Few people remember these series already in 2021.

And time goes on. So, in terms of cruel scenes, the leader, of course, is “Xena – Warrior Princess.” Here and various cruel types of murders with the help of a sword, chakram. And violent plot twists. For example, Xena wanted to kill the underage Chinese prince Ming Tien. And there are many other moments in the series. In later times, the series “Spartacus” was released. This is 2010, which is closer to us. The directors were the same as Xena Warrior Princesses. There was more blood. The series starred Lucy Lawless herself, the performer of the role of Xena. And then Game of Thrones came out, which also had a lot of violent scenes. But they also seemed to send the viewer back to the 1990s, when they filmed The Amazing Journeys of Hercules and Xena the Warrior Princess. The same scenery of castles, many fabulous creatures. Thus, The Witcher continues the traditions of these series.

According to the plot of the second season of The Witcher series, Geralt from Libya travels through a fantasy world, he wants to achieve results in the tasks that he set himself. The plot of the film is quite strong. The Witcher is based on Sapkowski’s books and the film’s narrative follows it. In the second season, Geralt is shown reaching the castle of Kaer Morhen, which is already almost in ruins. Witchers live there, as well as teacher Vesemir. Along with the Witcher was Ciri, who began to learn how to wield a sword. There are bright female characters in the series and a lot of time is devoted to them. There is a sorceress based on Yennefer in The Witcher. She partners with Fringilla, an elven woman, Francesca Findabair. It is known that the witch Yennefer pursues completely different goals, in contrast to those shown in the series.

In the second season, Geralt also does not waste time. Ciri is learning martial arts. She runs, keeping her balance, on moving logs. Fights with a wooden sword against straw training puppets. Geralt decides to explore the world around and understand where new types of creatures attacking them began to appear. The second season showed the Witcher from the other side. He shows good mental abilities, investigating not with a sword, but with his head. He is less cruel, more tolerant. Now he looks more like a man than a warrior or a witcher. This is probably due to the fact that around him are brothers in arms, that is, other witchers. With them, he can be human and communicate. After all, in the first season there were a lot of enemies around. He works great with Cirilla.

It is clear that he has warm feelings for her. Thus, in the second season, it becomes obvious that behind a mountain of muscle and a harsh disposition, there is an ordinary person who has weaknesses inherent in people. A common technique among those writers and screenwriters who write about strong personalities. In the second season, a character named Freya Allan is revealed. Her character is going through a complex personal drama. The personality of the heroine undergoes painful changes. It takes place against the backdrop of a beautiful backdrop in the form of stunning landscapes. But she succeeds with varying degrees of success. At times, she looks unconvincing. And in general, she is overshadowed by Cyril.

She was a pampered princess in the first season of the series. But now she has to become a skilled and ruthless warrior. It’s really a sharp transition. This reminds me of Gabrielle from Xena: Warrior Princess. There, too, a simple peasant girl was shown training to become an Amazon princess. But, as there, in the second season of The Witcher, the transition looks abrupt, unconvincing. As with Gabrielle, it seems that Ciri was already a warrior before her training. She just had to remember what she knew before. But this is far from being the case. And yet, the narrative is perceived smoothly. Need to know about that. that in the future the scriptwriters plan to make Cyril the central character, and not Geralt.

What other events are shown in the second season? Cirilla and Geralt visiting Nivellen. He has become a nightmarish creature and lives in an old house. And then another nightmare. Every evening, a beautiful vampire comes to Nivelyn and eats his flesh. Nivelin is immortal and does not die from her fangs. After this story, Geralt becomes the center of political intrigues, and there are also persecutions of elves. There will also be a battle with Leshy. And other events. The story gets more and more sinister.
