Episode 6 of The Witcher season 3 is going to explore more about the great war between Nilfgaard-supporting mages led by Vilgefortz and Northern Kingdoms loyalists led by Philippa. As a result of this war, the school of Aretuza is utterly demolished. Of course, the mages die, while those who survived are severely injured, eradicated, and lose their homes. The Brotherhood of Mages is out-of-order while Nilfgaard is approaching to conquer the Northern Kingdoms. The mages choose Yennefer of Vengerberg as their leader.

As Tissaia loses her touch because of the betrayal by her lover, Vilgefortz, and sees mages die in front of her, she is emotionally and mentally chaotic. Now, Yennefer will continue her political journey and would go to Vilgefortz’s stronghold of Vuilpanne. Do you remember Triss being worried about her girls going missing?

Yennefer will hold a funeral for the mages who passed away. While Tissaia does not attend the funeral, she parts ways with the mages after passing on a farewell letter to Yennefer. While Yennefer is taking up the responsibilities of leading the Lodge of Sorceresses, a “proto-Lodge”, Geralt is recovering from an intense fight with Vilgefortz. Triss ultimately decides that it would be best to take Geralt to the professionals: the dryad healers of Brokilon Forest.

While Geralt is in recovery, Ciri faces challenges alone. Vilgefortz captures Ciri and presents her in front of Emperor Emhyr. To Vilgefortz’s surprise, he has captured the ‘Fake Ciri’. This leads him to hold Istredd as his captive. Because Istredd is a walking, breathing, monolith encyclopedia. Therefore, when Vilgefortz loses Ciri as she escapes him via a portal in Tor Lara, Vilgefortz decides to take help from the monolith expert.
