The final episode saw Geralt and Yennifer attempt to remove the Voleth "parasite" from Ciri's possessed body. After a long and fatal battle, they succeed and Ciri uses her power to send Voleth back through the monolith's portal, but in doing so, pulls herself, Geralt, and Yennefer into a strange new world filled with demonic horse riders. 

The demonic riders, also known as The Wraiths of Mörhogg, encourage Ciri to "join their hunt", insisting that her place is among them. While she manages to pull her and her friends back to Kaer Morhen, it becomes clear that Ciri is destined for something dark and Geralt must do his best to protect her.
