Things get dark when Geralt of Rivia faces off against a kikimora at the start of the episode
Despite talking a little more than his liking, Geralt finds an ally in the young local Marilka, who dreams of one day becoming a monster hunter herself.
Though he admits he's done as much evil in the world as much as he has good, if a job comes to choosing between two evils, he would rather not choose at all.
Princess Cirilla is a bit of a rebel in her country of Cintra, but it couldn't come at a worse time.
Renfri tries to open Geralt's eyes to her side of the story, but can the witcher trust her?
Despite having confidence heading into the battle that support would arrive, Cintra falls to neighboring land Nilfgaard, with King Eist being killed during battle by an enemy officer.
Geralt returns to Blaviken to try and keep Renfri from killing Master Stregobor, having to fight against a group of thugs on his way to get to her.
