At the end of season 2, Ciri’s true power as the child of the Elder Blood, capable of opening portals to other worlds and releasing terrible monsters upon the continent was revealed as well as the existence of the ‘Wild Hunt’.
The official logline for Season 3 reads: “As monarchs, mages and beasts of the Continent compete to capture her, Geralt takes Ciri of Cintra into hiding, determined to protect his newly reunited family against those who threaten to destroy it. Entrusted with Ciri’s magical training, Yennefer leads them to the protected fortress of Aretuza, where she hopes to discover more about the girl’s untapped powers.”
