The Witcher Season 3 Episode 7 Recap
The focus shifts to Ciri’s character growth in The Witcher Season 3, Episode 7, as she sets out on a perilous solo adventure through the desert of Korath. Ciri (Freya Allan) discovers herself trapped in the desolate desert after fleeing the explosion at the tower of Tor Lara, which was brought on by her own potent magic. She is left to fend for herself and must rely on her wits and natural talents to survive.
Ciri meets a unicorn who becomes her companion and guide as she travels through the hard desert. The unicorn guides Ciri toward the water so she can survive while also alerting her to hazards in the desert. Along the way, Ciri also sees visions of important people from her past, such as her grandmother Calanthe and mother Pavetta, who stand in for her fears of becoming ruthless rulers like them and abandonment, respectively. She also sees a mysterious figure in a cloak who claims to be a princess with abilities similar to her own, who shows Ciri a potential future.
When the figure emerges from the shadows, it is Falka, a formidable historical figure who shared Ciri’s Elder Blood. Falka exhorts Ciri to completely embrace her powers by referencing her own resistance to those who wanted to dominate her. Ciri is conflicted about giving way to her fury and power because she worries that it may hurt her loved ones, like Geralt, Yennefer (Anya Chalotra ), and Jaskier (Joey Batey).
Ciri encounters many difficulties during her time in the desert, including a perilous insect-like monster that hurts her unicorn companion. Falka’s murmurs tempt Ciri to use her fire magic to heal the unicorn, but she chooses against it when she contemplates the possible repercussions of losing control of her abilities.
After fighting Vilgefortz, Geralt suffered severe injuries in another area of the Continent, and Triss brought him to the dryads of Brokilon for assistance. In Aretuza, Yennefer stays behind to look for Ciri amidst the destruction brought on by the tower explosion.
When Jaskier, Geralt’s devoted bard, gets to Aretuza, he runs upon Prince Radovid (Hugh Skinner), who had earlier betrayed him. Jaskier still cares for the prince despite the betrayal and provides him with the knowledge to avoid the disaster. However, finding Ciri is Jaskier’s first goal.
The episode’s conclusion reveals that Ciri was discovered by strangers in the desert, who then exchanged her for a payment from Nilfgaard’s Emperor. With this information, Geralt understands he must survive and save his daughter from Nilfgaard’s grasp.
