While The Witcher: Blood Origin is set 1,200 years before the events of The Witcher, the prequel leaves many loose ends that the main series will definitely explore in the future. The spin-off prequel tells the story of the Seven, a group of heroes who come together to defeat the Golden Empire and end up causing the Conjunction of the Spheres, allowing Blood Origin to help change the state of the continent even during the main series explain.
However, the spin-off also introduced new characters, who are likely to return in season 3 of The Witcher in just four episodes. That said, it’s okay to be confused as the credits roll and feel like you missed something hidden in the closing scenes of the series. So let’s break down what happens at the end of The Witcher: Blood Origin and explain what it all means. for the future.
The Fall of the Golden Empire
In the final episode of The Witcher: Blood Origin, the Seven achieve their goal of overthrowing the Golden Empire by igniting the flame of revolution in the hearts of the lowly. Tired of being oppressed by the Golden Empire and starving on the streets of Xin’trea, the people rise up after an inspirational speech by Éile (Sophia Brown), the lark. and destroy the central monolith in Xin’trea.
All of these events happen in just a few minutes, but they all have long-lasting effects. That’s because while the Seven Elfikind gave a reason to dream of a better world, one of the consequences of the destruction of the Golden Empire is the arrival of humans on the continent who would decimate the world for centuries to come elven population. and build their kingdoms on the ruins of the Golden Empire.
The Conjunction of the Spheres
One of the goals of the seven is to destroy the central monolith that the Great Wizard Balor (Lenny Henry) intends to use to draw forbidden power from other dimensions. When the seven reach the capital of the Golden Empire, Balor already controls the chaos. Magic, making him an enemy that no one can defeat in direct combat. So Zacaré (Lizzie Annis) uses her binding spell to bind Balor and his brother Syndrill (Zach Wyatt) together so they can harness the Chaos magic and use it against the monolith himself. Syndrill gives his life to the cause but manages to smash the huge structure and take Balor with him. What the seven did not expect was the conjunction of the spheres.
After the monolith is destroyed, multiple dimensions briefly converge at the same point in spacetime. As a result, creatures from different worlds land on the mainland. This is where the monsters of The Witcher universe come from, and their threat will lead to the creation of the mystical monster hunters. The conjunction of the spheres also brought Men to the continent, a race of belligerent conquerors who would spread like cancer across the lands and endanger the Elves. The main series still deals with the aftermath of the Conjunction of the Spheres and shows how non-human warriors from the continent allied with the Scoia’tael, a group of rebels fighting against human oppression.
The Death of the First Witcher
Blood Origin also includes the creation of the first prototype Warlock. Celestial brothers Zacaré and Syndrill combine their spells and knowledge, using the heart of a beast found in another dimension with one of the warriors of the Seven, Fjall (Laurence O’Fuarain). Fjall goes through the painful process of testing the herbs, a ritual in which many different elixirs break his mind and body.
After that, it was fused with the creature’s heart and turned into a monster. Fjall is faster, Stronger, and more resilient than any elf, he has enhanced senses and ultimately proves uncontrollable. Fjall tries to contain his anger and only unleashes his full power when confronted by the monster from the Golden Empire. Fjall eventually kills the beast, but by then it has gone too far. After killing his enemy, Fjall turns his gaze to his friends, kills the leader of the mercenaries who helped the seven, and gouges out an eye of Callan (Huw Novelli). Although he is in love with Fjall, Éile
Jaskier Blood Origin
At the end of The Witcher: Blood Origin, Éile, and Meldof (Francesca Mills) try to lead a peaceful life away from Xin’trea. Éile asks Ithlinne (Ella Schrey-Yeats), a girl who is a powerful seer, to touch her stomach and predict her son’s future. Ithlinne prophesied that her lineage would last for many centuries and that a distant descendant of her son would sing the tale of the seven for the last time before witnessing the end of the continent.
As the series shows, this offspring is Dandelion (Joey Batey). So Seanchaí (Minnie Driver) tasks Dandelion with learning the story of the Seven and spreading it so that the Scoia’tael can face the dangers that lie ahead with hope, not just anger. We don’t know what threatens to destroy the continent during the events of The Witcher, but it could be related to the Wild Hunt and elves living in another dimension.
The Wild Hunt Is Coming
In Season 2 of The Witcher, we take a look at the series’ version of the Wild Hunt, a gang of interdimensional marauders who kidnap people from other worlds. Blood Origin tells the origin story of the Wild Hunt leader Eredin (Jacob Collins-Levy). In the prequel, Eredin is the Supreme Commander of the Golden Empire.
He and his loyal soldiers end up in another dimension of Balor, who betrays him in his quest for power. At the end of Blood Origin, he discovers Eredin roaming on a red Planet that looks very similar to the one seen in The Witcher Season 2. He also finds a helmet buried in the sand, indicating that this other world was once the home of other people. Eredin will return to the main series in the near future and will likely hunt down Ciri (Freya Allan) and her Elder Blood.
Avallac’h Is Watching Ciri
Another classic character introduced in Blood Origin is Avallac’h (Samuel Blenkin), an elven wizard who advises Empress Merwyn. In the prequel credits scene, Avallac’h is seen watching Ciri in Cintra long before she came to Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill). The secret of his still looking young after 1200 years is hidden in the final episode of Blood Origin when Avallac’h reveals that he may have found a way to time travel using Syndrill’s study of
monoliths. Avallac’h watching Ciri means he’s interested in her elder blood. This could hint at how The Witcher Season 3 will incorporate new elements from Andrzej Sapkowski’s original books and CD Projekt Red’s popular video game franchise. In the tales of the sorcerers, Avallac’h was supposed to marry Lara Dorren before falling in love with the human Cregennan of Lod. For those who need to refresh their memory, Lara is the origin of Elder Blood and a distant relative of Ciri. Additionally, in The Witcher lore, Avallac’h also serves as a royal advisor in Tir ná Lia, the kingdom of the elves from another dimension. This role results in him running into Ciri on several occasions, sometimes as an enemy, and sometimes as a friend. Nevertheless. I don’t know how Netflix will adapt Avallac’h’s story, but the end credits scene underscores how he will become a key character in the main series.
