The Witcher: Blood Origin Ending Explained: What happened and how it furthers the Witcher lore
Anyone with a Netflix subscription knows that the streaming giant is betting big on The Witcher franchise, and has been since the first season debuted in December 2019 and quickly became the service’s biggest hit (for a while).
Until recently, however, we had only seen one animated spin-off, but now, after being announced two years agoThe Witcher: Blood Origin (the first live-action spin-off) has finally premiered.
We were promised that the prequel, set 1200 years before the events of the parent series, would put a “fun spin” on the story and show fans an unexplored slice of the continent’s history, and these four episodes delivered on that promise.
Let’s talk about what happened in The Witcher: The end of Blood Origin and how it promotes lore for Geralt, Ciri, Yen and their friends and foes.
What happened at the end of the Witcher: Blood Origin
Okay, so after our team of six people of warriors and mages (Éile, Fjall, Scan, Meldorf, Callan, Syndril and Zacaré) gathered, they must figure out how to defeat the Empress Merwyn and the interdimensional beast that slaughtered the clans of Éile and Fjall and now guards Xin’trea .

Scan, meanwhile, mounted his horse and rode to the Empress, where he pretended to surrender Éile and Fjall in exchange for the use of part of the royal guard.
The Witcher: Blood Origin Review – This blasphemy fantasy is a riot
Welcome to the Resistance! Maybe we shouldn’t look to fantasy shows on streaming services for advice on how fight authoritarianism, but you take what you can get. Following Andor on Disney+, which provided a comprehensive guide to popular uprising in the Star Wars universe, The Witcher: Blood Origin (Netflix) describes how to fight back when The Man has pointy ears.
For this prequel to The Witcher we have 1200 years of travel before the time of Geralt of Rivia – and it doesn’t matter if you don’t know who that is. Slide right in standalone story of a continent where elves, dwarves and other often unbalanced peoples live in uneasy proximity until the arrival of a single brutal dictatorship to rule them all makes everyone even more uneasy.
Out in the sticks, soldier-turned-traveling bard, Éile (Sophia Brown) is already providing revolutionary solidarity singing rousing folk songs in pubs – and, in her introductory scene, stabbing drunk gamblers in the legs and slamming their faces on tables before continuing to play her bent zither thingy and sing about the power of men. We like her instantly.
