The Witcher Season Two Prediction Guide

The Witcher Season Two Prediction Guide

I’m preparing for my fourth (yes, I said fourth) watch through of Netflix’s The Witcher, which was the greatest show of 2019. As I’m recapping in my head I wonder about all the things that could’ve been in season one that weren’t and how those items will more than likely arrive in season two. Things like why we didn’t get a clear look at Vesemir and why his character hadn’t been cast yet, or even why we didn’t get more Kaer Morhen talk. All of that led to this Witcher prediction Guide though, so be prepared to… (concluding sentence needed).

Witcher Prediction #1 – Geralt and Ciri Make it to Kaer Morhen, but Not Until Late Season Two

This one may seem a little obvious, but it doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be a prediction. We know at some point Cirilla will find herself at Kaer Morhen to begin her Witcher training, but there’s no shot that we jump from where season one ended into that training. I think early on we will get a lot of Geralt and Ciri bonding while they make their way to Kaer Morhen and a lot of people will be surprised with how late we actually are introduced to The Witcher training grounds (and Vesemir).

Prediction #2 – Yennefer Will Be Back, but not until AT LEAST Episode Three

It may be a shock to some but I don’t think we will have Yennefer back early on in season two. I think the writers will use the first three episodes to bring in new characters and get their stories started. All the while we sit in anticipation, and they let the suspense of what happened to Yennefer keep us on our toes. Then, when we least expect it, we will see a battered and bruised (potentially blinded) Yennefer trying to find who she really is yet again.

Witcher Prediction #3 – Ciri Will Begin her Training Before Kaer Morhen

This is a pretty simple one, but I predict that Geralt will have Cirilla training before they make it Kaer Morhen, and I think we will see plenty of it early on. I mean, come on, what else will she have to do as the dynamic duo makes their way home?

Prediction #4 – Vesemir Will Make an Appearance Before Geralt Arrives at Kaer Morhen

I think this will come in some form of a hunt in which Vesemir (and potential other “new” Witchers) will be introduced. This could potentially be how we get the rumored Leshen battle as well. It could also just be some random creature we see a group of Witchers fighting, and that might even lead us Geralt and Ciri showing up to save the day. Either way, we will definitely meet Vesemir before Geralt and Ciri make it to Kaer Morhen.

Witcher Prediction #5 – Geralt, Ciri, and Yennefer will NOT reunite in Season Two

I think Yennefer is going to be off doing her own thing for all season two, and potentially even longer than that. The show is rumored to play out over seven seasons, so we could potentially see Yen wandering the realm without her two most important companions for quite some time. As I mentioned earlier, I do think we will be fairly deep into season two before Yennefer is back, but once she is, I predict we will get a ton of blind Yen.

Prediction #6 – Vilgefortz Will Show His True Power

This is something that may be a stretch, but also something that I would love to see. Vilgefortz is an absolute force to be reckoned with in the books. He is also secretly in cahoots with Emhyr var Emreis, the Nilfgaardian Emperor, who is also Duny, who is Pavetta’s husband. Confusing, I know, but this helps explain tremendously. So, I expect to see Duny and Vilgefortz working together in Season two and I also predict that we will see much more of Vilgefortz magical potential as his story unfolds.

Witcher Prediction #7 – We will get another “Toss a Coin to Your Witcher” Banger

This is pure hope, but that song went so hard! We have to get another for season two you would think. Big shouts to Joey Batey for nailing that song and his role as Jaskier.

Prediction #8 – The Doppler Will Return

I’m not sure how, why, when, or as whom, but the Doppler will most definitely appear at some point throughout season two. There is too much invested into his character at this point to have him disappear the way he did and not have him be at the end of some trick. Maybe he was the Ciri Geralt met in the woods in the finale. Maybe he will pretend to be Cahir to infiltrate the Nilfgaardian Empire. He could even be a random new character that we meet who gets in with Geralt and Ciri!

Witcher Prediction #9 – Mark Hamill Will Play Vesemir

At this point, I don’t see how Lauren S. Hissrich can not cast Mark Hamill as Vesemir. I know there are loads of other potential candidates (Stellan Skarsgård, Sean Bean, or Ian McShane) that could portray the grizzled Witcher vet just as well, but Hamill has to be the one in my opinion. He would need to absolutely bomb his audition to not get the role. He would be exactly what I expected Vesemir to look like in real life and this just needs to happen (LOL).

UPDATE: Mark Hamill was extended the role of Vesemir! It’s still up in the air if he will accept, but I can’t imagine why he wouldn’t.

Prediction #10 – Philippa Eilhart Will Make an Appearance

Philippa is a sorceress known to have the extremely rare ability to polymorph. The Royal Court Mage to King Vizimir of Redania can take the form of an owl and is inherently neither good nor evil. I’m almost 100% positive Philippa will make an appearance because there has been rumors that Vizimir and Dijkstra will be making appearances in season two. If that rumor is true, you’d think it’s safe to assume that the kings loyal court mage would also appear and flex her magical prowess.

Witcher Prediction #11 – Geralt’s Company Will Begin to Form

Angoulême, Regis, Milva, and Zoltan Chivay are all members of Geralt’s Company that could begin to materialize in season two. Depending on how season two goes, any of these characters could be introduced, however, I think Zoltan makes the most sense to find his way on to the show. The other three are all pieces of Geralt’s team when he is looking for Cirilla after she disappears, and since the two haven’t even made it to Kaer Morhen, Ciri hasn’t begun training or disappeared yet, I find it a little harder to find them sneaking their way into the season.


Unfortunately for all of us, we’re still about a year out from seeing if any of these Witcher predictions come true. I know it’s a long way away, but I’m sure there will be plenty of new developments that keep our appetites satires over the coming months. Filming is set to begin soon, so be on the lookout for final character castings and other reviews here. I’m very intrigued to know what everyone else’s Witcher predictions for season two are, so be sure to comment below!

The Greatest TV Shows of All Time – Part I

My Top 10 Greatest TV Shows of All Time (#10 – 6)

In today’s day and age, binging TV has become a regular occurrence in our everyday lives. According to a Morning Consult survey from late 2018, nearly 60% of viewers watch two or more episodes of their favorite shows at least once a week. Of that 60%, roughly 15% claimed to binge daily, 28% several times per week, and the remaining 17% about once per week. All of that binging leads to many a discussion on which shows make the “Greatest TV Shows” of all time list, and I, of course, have my own take on said list. Since I ventured off to college and got my own Netflix way back in 2011, I’ve probably watched thousands, if not tens of thousands, of hours of television. But, of all of that time spent lounging on my couch, bed, or some random spot I’ve found myself when my body can no longer be comfortable in the aforementioned spots, these are the shows that stand out the most.

#10 – The Witcher

#10 The Witcher

I know, I know, this may be a little premature, but that’s also why I have it at #10. I wouldn’t be able to live with myself if I didn’t have this show somewhere on this list. This franchise has been one of my favorites since I discovered the Witcher 2 back in high school and Netflix dropping the first season in December was the greatest Christmas gift anyone could’ve asked for.

Everything about this franchise is amazing, but the show took it to an entirely different level for me. Starting with the opening scene, we’re submersed into a creepy bog of some sort where Geralt and a Kikamora are fighting for their lives. Throughout the season we get our fair share of vile creatures, villains, and fantasy perfection, all of which led to what I believe was the greatest season of ANY show in 2019. By the end of the season, I was utterly blown away by this show and I think it has a ton of potential to be the next Game of Thrones in regard to size, fan base, and overall success. Season two will be the true test to this franchise and the direction it could head, but I can easily see this show clawing its way to #1 if the future seasons are anywhere near as incredible as the first.

#9 – Dark

Dark

Speaking of shows without a massive collection of episodes, the Netflix original Dark has managed to become one of the most well put together series of the last few years with only two short seasons. Even with only eighteen episodes though, it managed to find its way at number nine of my greatest TV shows list.

The science fiction thriller takes your brain on a journey that will confuse, amaze, and shock you all at the same time. The show follows four families after the disappearance of a young boy exposes many secrets in a small, German town. This, in turn, leads to the unraveling of a time travel conspiracy that spans three generations. Dark not only left me wondering what was going to happen with these families, but also left my mind twisted in all sorts of pretzels as the time travel aspect becomes evident. One of the things that sets this show apart from all the other science fiction, time travel thrillers is that Dark does an amazing job of explaining the things that typically don’t make sense. On top of that, it is littered with easter eggs, hints, and puzzles that leave you wanting more.

#8 – Community

Community: Troy and Abed

Time for a throwback, and one of the greatest TV show comedies of all time. Community first aired in September 2009 and ran for six seasons, when it ended in mid 2015. What originally drew me into this show was the fact that Donald Glover, AKA Childish Gambino, was one of the main characters. But after the first season I was hooked, and I found myself attached to each one of the seven study group members.

For those of you who don’t know, Community follows Jeff Winger (Joel McHale) after he is suspended from being a lawyer. He lied about having a law degree, thus leading him to enroll at the local community college to obtain said degree and continue his life as a lawyer. While attending Greendale he will meet six of his best friends, and this will lead to pure comedic gold for all of us as viewers. Whether it was the paintball scenes, the absurdities enacted by Dean Pelton, or Troy and Abed rapping in Spanish, this show will 100% have you clutching your sides as you gasp for air from laughing throughout each episode.

#7 – Supernatural

Supernatural: Sam and Dean

Supernatural is one of my all-time favorite sci-fi/fantasy TV shows, and it’s also one of the longest running TV shows ever. Coming in at fifteen seasons, all of which are 20+ episodes long, its no minor undertaking to watch. But, I would recommend this show ten times out of ten to anyone who loves any type of supernatural related fields. It can range from angels and demons to horsemen of the apocalypse, and every now and then, a Wendigo or a Poltergeist will get mixed in as well. This brother-duo has grown so much over the years and it is truly incredible to see what Jensen Ackles (Dean) and Jared Padalecki (Sam) have turned this show into. As each season progresses it gets better and better, and this is one of very few shows that I’ve watched that has reintroduced villains multiple times. Yet, of all the times they have brought back a big bad, it’s never been in a way that makes you cringe at how they are brought back into the fold. It’s definitely quite the show to tackle if you’re starting from the beginning, but it’s a show you must watch at some point nonetheless.

#6 – Friday Night Lights

Friday Night Lights

Rounding out the first half of my greatest TV shows of all time list is Friday Night Lights. FNL debuted in October 2006, but I didn’t watch the show until just recently. I’d started it a few other times, but I would always get distracted by a new season of Game of Thrones, Supernatural, or some other show I was watching. As I’ve said in my Best and Worst of Friday Night Lights post though, I deeply regret waiting so long to sit down and fully watch through this classic. This show had just about everything you could ask for too. Inspirational father figure who is always making you emotional, check. Annoying daughter who you hate but can’t get enough of, check. Badass with luscious flow and a hankering to slug beers at any and all times… check. Even though the first two seasons were very, and I mean very, different from the rest due to the writers strike of 2007, this show never ceased to disappoint.

You – Season Two Review

You – Review of Netflix’s Hit Season Two

Wow. Just look at you. Sitting in that chair in the corner of coffee shop like you own the joint. You’re probably scrolling through your favorite WordPress blog… Oh wait, is that me? Is that my blog you’ve stumbled across? What’re the chances that add you just clicked misdirected you right to my page? Seems like it was fate. Seems like my post directed right… at… YOU.

If you couldn’t already tell, this week I’ll be diving head first into Netflix’s You, and why you need to give it a second chance if you weren’t in on season one.

A Little Background Info

So, You is essentially about a troubled young man who tends to fall in love extremely easily. He goes through his day to day life by stalking the girls he falls in love with, but he tries to play it off as if it’s all happening naturally. He is extremely tech savvy and uses a mixture of social media and stealth to track his women. The show is also based on the psychological thriller written by Caroline Kepnes, but both Lifetime and Netflix have taken their respective liberties in these first two seasons.

Season One of You (Lifetime)

The synopsis for season one is as follows: “The First season follows Joe Goldberg, a bookstore manager in New York, who meets Guinevere Beck, an aspiring writer, that he becomes immediately infatuated with. To feed his obsession, he soon turns to social media and technology to track her presence and eliminate any possible obstacles that stand in the way of their romance.” At first it may not draw you in, but its oh so much better than it sounds (and I thought it sounded good from the get go). I loved this first season, but as it came to a close, I was very concerned with what they would do for a second season. I think Lifetime had this same worry as they never picked the show up for season two. But thank goodness Netflix didn’t have those same worries.

Season Two of You (Netflix)

Almost immediately, Netflix reminds us that this is a new show and it will take place in a new location. They have Will, A.K.A Joe, making his way through a movie set as his inner monologue explains to us why he had to leave New York. It ultimately came down to the fact that his thought to be dead ex, Candace, returned and was planning to torture Joe with her presence. He flee’s to Cali where he meets Love, who turns out to be just as crazy as our favorite murderous boyfriend, Joe. These two have their moments, but it all leads us to quite a twist in the penultimate and final episodes. Netflix did a splendid job with season two. It almost made season one seem like a totally different show! We will definitely be in for quite the ride when Netflix releases season three in a year or so.

All in all, this show is a 10 out of 10 recommend to any and all of you reading this. It blends the perfect amount of comedy, thriller, and mystery all into one concoction that has us all wondering if we know anyone like this in our lives.
