An Epic Hunt

While on a separate job hunting a creature, where the men who hired him try to rob the supplies off Roach while Jaskier does nothing to help, Geralt meets a man named Borch Three Jackdaws, whose travel companions Téa and Véa kill one of the two men while the other flees. Borch beckons Geralt to join him at a local tavern, where plentiful food and ales are ordered, and asks the witcher to help join him on a hunt for a green dragon currently hiding somewhere in the mountains of King Neidamir’s kingdom. The dragon was recently spotted by locals who believed they could acquire the treasure it has amassed, but after wounding it, the creature laid waste to nearby farms, burning crops and sheep. The king has offered a reward to any that kill the dragon, including allowing the victor to keep whatever treasure they find, and four teams have been assembled, one of dwarves, one of reavers and one with Yennefer in tow as companion to Sir Eyck of Denesle. While initially refusing the job, Geralt accepts given the opportunity to connect back with Yennefer, while Jaskier continues to try and woo Borch’s companions.

Be Careful Who You Trust

While Ciri and Dara follow the doppler Mousesack out of Brokilon, he answers her question regarding her connection to Geralt, revealing he is owed to her as a reward for law of surprise after he saved her father. As they return to the snow-covered woods, Dara begins to question Mousesack’s motives, claiming much of what he said and is doing aren’t adding up, but the doppler presents Ciri with her grandmother’s sash, appeasing her for the time being. After coming across an open field, Ciri’s conversations with Mousesack begin to take a suspicious turn and she accuses him of lying, to which he reveals he is not Mousesack and Dara attacks him with a silver knife, revealing his true monstrous form. After knocking out Dara, the doppler chases Ciri through the woods, where she is eventually captured by what appears to be a Nilfgaardian soldier and drugged into unconsciousness.

Somebody’s Jealous

As the four groups trek up the mountains on foot, with the path being too narrow for horses, the dwarves and Borch’s team seem to be getting along friendly as they both dislike the reavers and Eyck, who appears a little too uppity for their taste. While heading up a hillside path, Jaskier comes across a hirikka, with Geralt telling everyone to sheath their weapons as it doesn’t intend any harm, but the overzealous Eyck kills it quickly and proceeds to slash away at its dead body for a while before feasting on its corpse, which gives him digestion problems. While they sit around the fire, Borch and Geralt discuss the history of dragons, including the mythical gold dragon, which the witcher claims to have died out while Borch believes they are still alive. After awakening the next day, a dwarf finds Eyck dead in some nearby brush, his throat slit while handling the digestion issues from feeding o the hirikka, leaving Yennefer to begrudgingly join Geralt’s team.

Old Wounds Mended

As they team up with the dwarves team to take a shortcut alongside the mountain to get ahead of the reavers, Borch and his companions step poorly on some old planks and fall to their death after asking Geralt to continue on and protect those still able to live. Geralt questions Yennefer on why she came along in the journey in the first place and she reveals she is trying to create a mythical potion using a fresh dragon’s heart that will restore her fertility. Geralt and Yennefer step away into a tent at the top of the mountain and discuss the pain they each caused each other following their initial meeting, with the witcher slipping away while she slept following their sexual encounter in Rinde while Yennefer later repeated the same act on Geralt. The two apologize to each other and spend the night together, waking up to find one another still laying in bed next to each other before heading outside and realizing the dwarves have left.

The Mighty Dragon Couple

Yennefer and Geralt catch up to the dwarves racing up the hill to where the dragon is staying and she uses her powers to freeze them in place. Upon arriving in the cave, she finds the green dragon has already perished and is laying near a dragon egg, and as Geralt attempts to stop her from approaching, Téa and Véa reveal themselves to be alive and a golden dragon flies in from a hole in the roof of the cave and speaks, revealing Borch was a golden dragon all along and hired Geralt to help protect his dead wife and her egg from the hunting parties. The reavers arrive and engage in a length sword fight with both Geralt and Yennefer, both using their powers to kill the entire group, while one seemingly dead is burned alive by Borch while trying to crawl towards the egg.

A Change of Heart

Ciri awakens to find Cahir has captured her and is discussing the fact he is the true key to her destiny, but as he looks away to get her some food, it’s revealed he actually captured the doppler disguised as Ciri. The two engage in a fight, in which the doppler mostly has the upper hand and even wounds Cahir, before it takes off and eludes Cahir’s capture. The real Ciri is tied up to a tree in the woods and is found by Dara, who frees her but then laments her for having them leave Brokilon and claims she is going to get him killed and leaves her for good.

Forcing the Hand of Destiny

In the aftermath of the battle, the dwarves finally arrive at the cave and Borch offers them dragon’s teeth to bring to the king in exchange for no questions asked, which they readily accept and leave. Borch has a talk with Geralt and Yennefer after, in which Geralt reveals his final wish to the djinn was to keep their destinies intertwined, further angering Yennefer after Borch declares she won’t be able to reverse the loss of her fertility. Geralt and Yennefer part ways and he scolds Jaskier for everything he has come to experience thus far, blaming it on the bard, who then sadly leaves as well.

The Witcher Season 1 Episode 5 Recap

The Witcher season 1 episode 5 recap

The walls are closing in on Princess Cirilla (Freya Allan) as the evil Nilgaardian commander Cahir is hot on her tail, while Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill) and Yennefer of Vengerberg (Anya Chalorta)’s paths are finally crossing as the sorceress is currently on a new path in life.

RELATED: The Witcher Season 1 Episode 3 Recap

A Secret Weapon

Knowing that the Brokilon Forest is too dangerous to venture in given the Dryads inhabitation, Cahir enlists a doppler to infiltrate the area. He brings out Mousesack, who Fringilla has locked up in a cage made out of dimeritium, which has essentially neutered the mage’s powers. The doppler takes Mousesack’s form and proceeds to kill him, revealing that every person he imitates he gains their entire knowledge and feelings in the process.

The New Temporary Path

Following her departure from the Brotherhood of Sorcerers, Yennefer is now living in the small kingdom of Rinde helping the locals out with minor spells to make their lives better, much to the dismay of the mayor, who despises mages and requests payment from any who wish to perform magic in his town.

Saving the Bard Yet Again

As Jaskier travels through the forest, he comes across Geralt, who appears to be fishing in a nearby lake but is actually in search of a djinn in order to wish for a chance to sleep. After fishing out the jar in which the entity is contained, he and Jaskier fight over it and cause it to break, with the latter believing he is its master and asking for two wishes before being attacked by the djinn that leaves him on the verge of death. Geralt brings him to the nearest elf doctor, Chireadan, who offers a potion that will prevent death for a few hours until they find a mage. He reluctantly sends them to Rinde to head into the mayor’s castle where he has Yennefer locked up, and after knocking out the guard and walking through the halls and finding the mayor in a naked trance, they stumble upon a party room in which an orgy is underway with Yennefer watching. She reveals everyone there is under her spell, including Jaskier, who sits next to a few naked women despite his impending doom, and she agrees to help save his life in return for something she doesn’t yet specify.

True Intentions Revealed

Yennefer invites the witcher to share a bath with her, while not letting him see her in the nude, and the two reveal they know things about the other’s kind, with Geralt pointing out signs that she originally came from Aretuza and questions what her deformity was before the transformation, to which she doesn’t answer. While looking in on Jaskier, Geralt notices the seal to the jar laying on a nearby dresser and a version of it drawn on the floor with candles surrounding it and surmises that she is planning to capture the djinn for her own means after the final wish is spoken, which they both believe is from Jaskier. She uses a combination of herbal scents to paralyze Geralt, who seemingly falls asleep and awakens in a dungeon cell, only to learn from Chireadan that he was actually entranced by her and attacked two city councilman brutally, both of whom were trying to usurp the mayor and evict Yennefer from town. Chireadan also reveals he is in love with Yennefer and didn’t want to send Geralt and Jaskier her way for fear of them falling under her spell.

Who’s Your Master?

The guard from the gate Geralt knocks out upon arrival enters the cell and begins beating up the witcher, using his shackles to keep it an easy fight for him. In the meantime, Jaskier awakens in the room to find Yennefer waiting mostly nude with symbols on her chest that will help her become the vessel for the djinn and tries to get him to make his final wish. As he tries and seemingly nothing happens, Geralt wishes for the guard to burst, which he does quite instantaneously, realizing the cuts on his arm from the broken pot have made him the master of the djinn. He rushes upstairs to try and stop Yennefer from her attempts at harnessing the djinn’s powers, and after making a new wish that sees the djinn fly away and the seals on the dresser and her body fly away, the roof seemingly collapses on them, leaving both Chireadan and Jaskier heartbroken. However, we then see that Yennefer portalled them to the party room from earlier, and she reveals she was going to use the djinn to restore her fertility, which was taken away during her transformation at Aretuza. The two take action on their attraction together and begin to have sex, with Jaskier initially lamenting at their deaths until Chireadan brings him to the window to show they are having sex before pulling him away to leave them in private. Yennefer asks what was Geralt’s wish, but he’s fast asleep before he can answer her question.

The Illusion Succeeds

The doppler version of Mousesack heads into Brolikan and is guided by the Dryad locals to find Ciri, claiming he previously served her family, and while Dara is initially hesitant to follow her, he joins her as they leave the forest in search of Geralt.

The Witcher season 1 episode 4 recap

Paths are beginning to cross and revelations are coming to light in the fourth episode of Netflix’s series adaptation of The Witcher, which sees Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill) head to a ball alongside bard Jaskier as his bodyguard, while Cirilla (Freya Allan) meets a dangerous new ally and Yennefer (Anya Chalorta) chooses to forge her own path.

The Beckoning Voice

After heading off in an unknown path through the woods in a trance, Ciri walks from the snow-covered trees into the oasis-like Brokilon Forest, where she is surrounded by tribal-looking people known as Dryads. The rest of the tribe hold a meeting protesting Ciri staying in the forest, as there’s a power deep inside her that she doesn’t even know about that could threaten them all, but the leader says they will have her and Dara drink the waters from the area and if they’re ill of heart, they will die, otherwise they will forget their troubles and stay.

The Wedding Celebration

After being swallowed by a selkiemore and cutting his way out of it, Geralt returns to the tavern to collect his reward and finds Jaskier in a nearby tavern collecting details of the story and the bard hires the witcher to act as his bodyguard at a royal ball, as he has slept with a few too many royal wives. While dressing him down and asking him to remain silent to avoid the spotlight, Jaskier is disconcerted that Geralt is immediately recognized and reunited with an old friend, the mage Mousesack, with the ball taking place in Cintra. Queen Calanthe arrives back from a battle to reveal that the ball is a wedding celebration for lords from other kingdoms to vie for the hand of Princess Pavetta, despite her not wanting marriage, and invites Geralt to sit by her side during the festivities.

Burning Bridges Early

Various lords vie for the hand of Pavetta, including that of Lord Peregrine from Nilfgaard, whom the rest of the crowd treats as a joke and Calanthe likens his nation to that of “shit wipe,” causing him to storm out in a rage.

Bored of Political Nonsense

Yennefer is escorting Queen Kalis and her baby daughter with a group of knights, expressing her desire to move on from cleaning up political messes after three decades. The convoy is attacked by an unknown bug-like creature that is being controlled by a mage. She portals them both to a desert area, surmising the attacker is an assassin who was sent by the king to kill Kalis as he has grown tired of her not giving him a male heir. They are followed by the assassin and its creature and continue to portal through multiple areas before arriving in a mountain-top area, where Yennefer portals away herself. As Kalis tries to bargain for her life by offering her baby as sacrifice, she is killed by the assassin and Yennefer portals back in time to save the baby from the creature, but is hit by a knife from the assassin while fleeing through another portal, emerging to find the baby killed by the knife and choosing to now forge her own path away from the Brotherhood.

An Unlikely Suitor

While seeming indifferent to the multiple lords vying for her hand, a knight named Urcheon of Erlenwald fights his way into the hall to offer his hand in marriage, keeping his face covered as it is part of his code. King Eist pulls his helmet off, revealing a face that of a porcupine, which Urcheon says stems from a curse put upon him as a young boy and that when the twelfth bell rings he will be cured. He reveals that he previously saved Eist in battle and was offered the law of surprise as a reward, with which he will be granted with something Eist has that he does not yet know. Upon returning from that battle, Eist found Calanthe was pregnant with Pavetta, hence Urcheon is owed her hand in marriage, and while Eist agrees with him and it’s revealed destiny has already brought the star-crossed lovers together prior to the ceremony, Calanthe vehemently protests and orders Urcheon killed. Geralt steps in to prevent him from being killed and a battle ensues between the two and Cintran soldiers, as well as an all-out brawl with everyone else.

A New Power Emerges

Calanthe calls a hold to the battle and approaches her daughter’s love in a seemingly peaceful manner to accept his proposal, having given her sword to Eist. However, it is revealed she is concealing a dagger at her waist and attempts to kill Urcheon, but before she can Pavetta reveals she has powers and uses them to send everyone flying and pressed against the walls, with a whirlwind guarding her and her love. Mousesack and Geralt use their combined magic to burst the whirlwind and temporarily disable Pavetta. Calanthe embraces her daughter, remarking at the fact she has received her grandmother’s powers, which skipped over the queen, and reverses her decision, choosing not to mess with destiny and allow the two to be married. During the marriage ceremony held right there in the damaged hall, Pavetta and Duny, as she calls him, kiss, turning him back into human form and breaking the curse. While initially refusing payment from Duny for his help, Geralt decides to ask for a Law of Surprise as his reward and before he can protest to it regarding a child yet again, Pavetta throws up, revealing she is in fact pregnant and leaving her child and Geralt’s destinies intertwined.

The Mysteries of Brokilon

Cirilla is awoken from a nightmarish vision of the horrors her people are suffering at the hands of Nilfgaard to find Dara drinking the waters of Brokilon, which have helped him forget the dreadful past in which Calanthe ordered the slaughtering of his people and wishes to stay with the Dryads. Ciri chooses to also drink from the water, however it seemingly has no effect on her. The leader of the Dryads takes her to a mystical tree in which she says is the root of the powerful water and Ciri drinks from it, which transports her to a magical place with a mystical tree beckoning to her.

The Walls Are Closing In

Back in Cintra, a group of Nilfgaardian mages led by Fringilla come upon Calanthe’s dead body and one of them cuts off a chunk of skin from her arm and eats it, beginning to convulse and leading one of the others to stab him to death and rip out his internal organs. They then read his stomach, which reveals that Ciri is hiding in the Brokilon Forest, and helping Cahir to formulate a plan for how to finally capture her.
