The Witcher Blood Origin: While The Witcher: Blood Origin focuses on the series’ historical roots, it nonetheless has significant ties to the ongoing events of the rest of the series. In addition to the introduction of Jaskier (Joey Batey) in the first episode of the miniseries, Blood Origin has a lot to say about the past, present, and potential future of the princess of Cintra.
Some aspects of Ciri’s (Freya Allan) position in Blood Origin aren’t immediately evident. Still, they appear to play a crucial role in the upcoming third season of the main show, including a significant deviation from the books.
The final scene of Blood Origin features Éile (Sophia Brown) getting a prophecy from Ithlinne (Ella Schrey-Yeats), the young elf at the tavern who gets visions.
Despite being a well-known character from the books, Ithlinne had undergone a significant transformation for the television adaptation of the Witcher universe. Also updated was her most well-known and Ciri-focused prophecy. The revised text now goes as follows:
The time of the spheres is upon us. Aen Seidhe lost across the skies. Cast adrift in time. Ever searching for love, lost and left behind. The Lark’s seed shall carry forth the first note of a song that ends all times. And one of her blood shall sing the last.
Since this prophecy was spoken to Éile (who we now know to be a distant relative of Ciri by years), the show is stretching the timeline slightly to make Ciri’s eventual arrival and a destiny far more convoluted and long-lasting than it has seemed to be in the world of the books and games.
This also establishes Ciri as a direct descendent of the first Witcher. Even if she is born with Elder Blood, this shift threatens to diminish the significance of her own (possible) future transformation into a Witcher by making it a piece of genetic destiny passed down from a great-grandfather rather than an achievement done by someone exceptional.

It’s as dreadful as it looked… 🤮
Netflix should seriously fire everyone involved with the writing & cancel further spinoffs. What a joke they’ve turned this beloved franchise into. pic.twitter.com/wnR0ZO4Owv

Blood Origin shrinks the globe into a pinhole by focusing on a handful of prominent figures who seem responsible for every significant historical event rather than expanding it via knowledge of all the people and places vital to those times.
After the credits roll, we get a quick look at Ciri, presumably during the events of the main Witcher series, to further emphasize the show’s reduction of the universe. Avallac’h (Samuel Blenkin) watches her as she plays with children while disguised.
In this incredibly cryptic tease, the show seems to be insinuating that Avallac’h will be a significant part of the third season of the main display and that he did discover a way to travel through time and a way to determine that Ciri is the kid spoken of in the prophecy.

Regarding the remainder of the Witcher plot, this seems to devalue Lara Dorren‘s character by making her nothing more than a link in a lengthy chain of elves that led to Ciri. Yet, she would still be remarkable for marrying and having a kid with a human.
Overall, the meaning of this interpretation of Ciri’s prophecy and the impact it will have on the globe remains unclear (except for reducing it to the possible minor pieces). Season 3 of The Witcher, in which Ciri is expected to play a prominent role, will reveal the story’s global ramifications.
