The Witcher: Blood Origin Ending Explained: What Happened and How It Furthers the Witcher Lore

Everyone 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 time).

Until recently, however, we’d only seen one animated spinoff, but now, after being announced over two years ago, The Witcher: Blood Origin (the first live-action spinoff) has finally premiered.

We were promised that the prequel, set 1200 years before the events of the parent series, would be a “fun twist” on the story and show fans an unexplored part of the Continent’s history, and these four episodes have delivered on that promise.

So, let’s talk about what happened in The Witcher: Blood Origin’s ending and how it advances the lore for Geralt, Ciri, Yen, and their friends and enemies.

What Happened at the End of the Witcher: Blood Origin

All right, so after our six-person team of warriors and mages (Éile, Fjall, Scan, Meldorf, Callan, Syndril, and Zacaré) got together, they had to figure out how to defeat Empress Merwyn and the interdimensional beast that slaughtered Éile and Fjall’s clans and now guards Xin’trea.

After the group inadvertently travels to a different dimension, Syndril and Zacaré devise a plan to magically fuse one of the warriors with the essence of the beast they killed.

Éile agrees, but the night before, after she and Fjall engage in sexual activity, he takes the bullet and is transformed into a rage-filled, yellow-eyed proto-Witcher.

Scan, meanwhile, mounted his horse and rode to the Empress, where he pretended to surrender Éile and Fjall in exchange for the use of a portion of the royal guard.

The Witcher: Blood Origin Review – This Profanity-packed Fantasy is a Riot

Welcome to the resistance! Perhaps we shouldn’t look to fantasy shows on streaming services for advice on how to combat authoritarianism, but you take what you can get. After Andor on Disney+, which provided a comprehensive guide to grassroots rebellion in the Star Wars universe, The Witcher: Blood Origin (Netflix) details how to fight back when The Man has pointy ears.

For this prequel to The Witcher, we travel 1,200 years before the time of Geralt of Rivia – and it doesn’t matter if you don’t know who that is. Slide right into the self-contained story of a continent where elves, dwarves, and other frequently at-odds peoples live in uneasy proximity until the arrival of a single vicious dictatorship to rule them all makes everyone even more uneasy.

Out in the sticks, soldier-turned-traveling bard, Éile (Sophia Brown) is already instilling revolutionary solidarity by singing rousing folk songs in pubs – and, in her introductory scene, stabbing drunk punters in the legs and smashing their faces on tables before continuing to play her bowed zither thingy and sing about people power. We like her right away.
