Top 5 moments of The Witcher season 2

5. Geralt of Rivia vs Leshy Eskel

One of the most emotional and exciting scenes from The Witcher Season 2 was definitely when the Geralt had to wield his sword to plunge Leshy Eskel’s heart.

Given the nature of his job, the Geralt mostly likes to keep to himself. And his encounter with friend turned-monster Eskel was one of the most heartbreaking scenes of Season 2. The Geralt of Rivia trying his best to not kill Leshy Eskel is one of his rarest moments of vulnerability. The scene gets an easy slide into the top 5 best The Witcher Season 2 moments.

4. Yennefer and Jaskier reuninon

There is no doubt that Yennefer is among the top favorite character of The Witcher. The fact that she was such a force not to reckon with despite not having her magical powers in this season shows why fans love her.

Her banter with Jaskier is one of the most enjoyable and light-hearted aspects of the series. And the heartwarming hug after the two of them saw each other after nearly eons is no doubt one of the best moments of The Witcher Season 2. The lines “I always knew you were a blood-sucking joyless hugger,” sum up Yennefer’s character. The scene is only topped by her rescuing him by spitting in Rience’s face and leaving him with an ugly scar. With or without magic, Yennifer is a winner.

3. Fringilla proves everyone wrong

One of the strongest characters in the series without a doubt is Fringilla. Having had enough of people doubting her capabilities, Fringilla Vigo decides to eliminate her enemies. “There are those who are obsessed with finding power and there are those who know their place. You know which one you are,” Uncle Artorias should not have said that because following this Fringilla makes sure to let everyone know of her place. And that it is very powerful.

The equal parts horrifying and intriguing scene as Fringilla paralyzed her generals and kills them is truly one of the best moments in The Witcher season 2. The scene where she stabs one general’s eyes without even flinching proves how far Fringilla can go for power.

2. Geralt of Rivia vs The Bruxa

One of the most exciting fight scenes of The Witcher Season 2 was Geralt’s fight with the Bruxa. Geralt and Siri take shelter in the house of a cursed man named Nivellin. But what they do not know is that their shelter is also the home to a horrifying Bruxa.

The secrets do not stop there because turns out that the Bruxa and Nivellin have fallen in love. The fight sequence that takes place in the middle of a stormy snowy night takes home the cake for being one of the best fight scenes in season 2. Furthermore, Nivellin being the one to put an end to his lover also marks one of the most emotionally wrenching scenes of the season.

The fight between Siri, Yennefer, Geralt, and the seven figures with black armor on horses was mind-blowing. Furthermore, this scene was building up ever since Tris went digging into Ciri’s memory. Known as the portent of dooms, the Wraiths of Mörhogg were and are the scariest rivals.

The fact that the horrifying Voleth Meir is just a part of the Wild Hunt shows that Geralt’s sword has yet to slay the most terrible creatures of all.
