The Witcher: Episode Wise Breakdown of The First Season

The Witcher might have been a fan-favorite, but it sure well knows how to confuse its audience.

With so many timelines and flashbacks and stuff….it is hard to keep track of what is happening. Before we go into the details, The Witcher season 1 revolves around Ciri, Geralt and Yennefer

Ciri’s scenes are always of the present timeline, so if you see Ciri interacting with any other character, then that means they are in the current timeline too.
