The Witcher 3 Volume 2 Ending Explained
The Season’s final episode is called the Cost of Chaos and the word Chaos here has a double meaning. In the world of The Witcher chaos is the source of which magic is harnessed and it’s chaos that has now overtaken the continent after the events of the thaned coup.
At the end of part 1, we saw ahead of Rodanian intelligence Sigismund Dixtra hold Geralt at knife Point as the Brotherhood conclave descended in an all-out power grab between two rival parties essentially you have Vilgaforts and the supporters of nilfgaard including the Scoia tell led by Francesca versus Sigismund in the northern kingdoms with the Mages choosing diff different sides themselves.
But perhaps the biggest betrayal comes from Vilgafort himself who turns against his lover to sire revealing. She was merely a pawn in his Grand plans. This betrayal ends with her nearly killing herself by using alzur’s. Thunder is an extremely powerful and difficult spell to defend Eritusa from its Invaders although she survives the coup the herd of her.
Lover’s betrayal heartbreak failure to protect the Brotherhood and her own guilt leads her to suicide in a letter to Yennefer she states that the use of chaos always comes with a price and for what she did. She must pay there is a cost also sees Geralt face off against the sorcerer Vilgaforce who up until this point has been hiding the extent of his power “Now with the hardest part was holding”.
Although he gives Geralt one last chance to join Nilfgaard, Geralt denies him leading to an absolutely brutal fight scene that sees Geralt get decimated in fact Vilgafort’s staff is so powerful that it shatters Geralt’s sword but oddly enough Vilgafort’s lets Geralt live both to teach him a lesson and as a warning to others this is where we begin.
The final episode with Geralt recovering in Brooklyn Forest under the watchful eye of the Dryad queen Bethany here will also be introduced to Milva one of the few non-dryads tolerated in Brooklawn and who will eventually join Geralt on his journey the Waters of Brokelon are said to be possessed magical healing properties.
But they are not successful on Geralt as the waters are only meant for natural beings and he’s considered a mutant. Jennifer will later arrive and use magic to speed up the healing process something that does not happen in the book with Geralt is Yaskir who had his heart broken by Prince Radovid who is using him to get to Siri even though he says his feelings for The Bard were true.
Radovid will eventually become king of Rodinia after the sudden assassination of his elder brother King vizimir putting his plans. To prove to Yaskir that his feelings for him are true on hold in the books. Radovid is actually Vizimir’s son but they’ve changed it to brother in the show. Vizimir was assassinated by a character named Eva who we had seen intimate with Philippa Elhart.
This assassination was entirely orchestrated by Philippa to install a new easier to control King but it also had the added benefit of saving Dixtra who was gonna kill himself as payment for him.
