It doesn’t reveal much, apart from a rather gruesome killing of a merchant and his wife at the hands of some mysterious foe. The scene ends with their daughter heading off to a mansion, screaming for help.

There’s a rather puzzling voice over throughout from Geralt. It sounds like he’s speaking to someone (something?) that’s been following him – something even Geralt may be afraid of.

Fans are already speculating this season opener is based on The Witcher author Andrzej Sapkowski’s short story A Grain of Truth. In that story there’s a dead merchant and his wife and a large manor house. It goes places.

The Witcher’s eight-episode second season is due out at some point in 2021.
