Deleted Geralt’s Scenes And Characters from The Witcher Season 2
The Witcher Season 2 is suddenly becoming the most popular series because of all the characters, Geralt, Yennefer and Ciri.
The Witcher Season 2 is being released just now, and people have binge-watched all the episodes. The uniqueness of Witcher Season 2 is that it was rewritten in the five-month break and was filmed in the pandemic.
The Witcher Season 2 started with the Geralt (played by Hanry Cavill) is taking Ciri (Freya Allan) to his hometown Kaer Morhen. The repeated things of The Witcher Season 2 have worked effectively, as the Geralt character of infuriating energy and his self-contained theories of men turned into monsters.
Apart from all the things viewers are looking at in the final product of the Witcher Season 2, we are sharing all the information about the deleted characters and scenes here.
Intimate Scene of Geralt and Triss
A few months ago, one sex scene between Geralt and Triss was reported in the first half of witcher season 2. Viewers didn’t see that in the end product. However, the original plan was for Geralt and Triss to be in a room together and become friendly.
Both of them were playing one game whose rules were that whoever wins would get to ask a question. We don’t know the exact topics of their conversation, but relatively sure that their talking leads to sex.
The guess behind the scene being deleted is that maybe Henry refused to do this act and saved the viewers from the argument of Team Yennefer and Team Triss. Also, the game we mentioned, Triss and Geralt, was playing was similar to the one Geralt and Nivellen played with knives.
Ciri had a Crush on Triss
When Ciri was complimenting Triss about her dress, was a hint shared that Ciri might have a liking for Triss.
In some scenes which were not finalized, Triss was flirting with Geralt (earlier mentioned reasons), and Ciri was supposed to show jealous emotions because of her liking for Triss.
In one scene, Ciri was wanted to wear a similar shirt Geralt was wearing to impress Triss, and for that, she also had to go through the teasing from people about her shirt.
However, the final cut was decided based on the book, where Ciri wore something similar to Triss.
Lambert Witcher: Bisexual
Before the global pandemic happened, it was reported yet not attracted a lot of attention that sex workers were invited to Kaer Morhen, the hometown of Geralt.
In some previous variations, all the sex workers were women, but Lambert Witcher was found to be enjoying the company of a woman and a man.
However, the finalized castings of sex workers were published; not a male actor was acting as a role of sex actor. Maybe that’s the reason this version was not forwarded. And Lambert was seen enjoying the closeness with two women, in the final cut.
Eskel Witcher’s Character
Opposing views were shared online about the no alterations in Eskel’s destiny and the actor. Everything about Eskel Witcher was going to be the same as earlier, with no recasting and no rewrites.
However, something about him will be modified, which is his character. Initially, his character would be pricklier and a bit of an asshole. And the possibility is that the flashback scene between him and Geralt was added during the alterations in Episode 3.
Childhood of Vesemir, Geralt and Deglan: Flashback
The young Geralt, Vesemir and Deglan were seen in the animated film, The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf.
Some of the flashback scenes were supposed to be shown in the witcher season 2; however, the two were cut. In the final cut, one can only witness one flash of young Geralt’s eyes and hear a little of Vesemir’s voice.
And Vesemir’s coach, named Deglan, wasn’t approved for the final scene, but he was mentioned in the second episode.
Countess de Stael
A lady from Andrzej Sapkowski’s books was the inspiration from which Jaskier, the Dandelion, started writing poetry and composing songs.
During the pandemic, the reports state that she is included in the witcher season 2. However, her scene was deleted in the final product. And one question can be pondered upon, is that, where exactly she would appear?
Original Fenn was a Man
To begin with, Fenn, a disabled person and a partner in a detective agency in Codringher, was supposed to be a male character. The actor Kevin Davids reported auditioning for the role and that’s why the theory of Fenn being a man was formed. Well, it is possible that the casting began again and found an audition for one male character.
Revenge of Roach: Geralt’s Horse
In the witcher season 2, Geralt’s Horse, Roach died because of Chernobog claws. In the previous versions, Geralt originally took bone from Roach’s corpse and killed the monster.
But in the final cut of the witcher season 2. And in 2019, Declan de Barra posted something on Twitter saying, ‘Roach’s Revenge is already being written’.
The Priestess of Iola
Iola, a young yet sensitive Priestess in the Temple of Melitele, appeared in Season 2. According to the timeline, the announcement of the first or second Iola wasn’t finalized yet, but the second priestess was in the novels.
Kings Ethain and Demavend
The role of King Ethain of Cidaris in the witcher season 2 was played by Luke Cy, whose entrance has been postponed in Season 3. And reports state that a casting call regarding a king who flirts with Jaskier.
The casting for Season 3, the exact role could be for King Demaven of Aedirn. The role was earlier played by the background actor Richard Tirado.
Vilgefortz and Stregobor
Lauren S. Hissrich, showrunner, explained another deleted scene on December 20 in The Witcher: Unlocked.
“I think that in writing a series this big, where there is so much rich history, we really have to take care of when we’re introducing certain things. To me, the history of Vilgefortz, who he is in this world – he enters almost as a complete stranger and everyone’s kind of wondering what his history is, where he came from. That comes into fruition in a huge way in season three, so that’s a scene that we wanted to hold back.” – by Lauren S. Hissrich.
Philippa Eilhart: Cassie Clare
All the fans witnessed the version of Philippa as an Owl in almost all the Season 2. In one scene, she wasn’t seen as an owl, which can be because of planning before the pandemic.
In most of Season 2, the human form of Philippa wasn’t shown, so the absence of Philippa was heard. But after a year, the actor for Philippa was cast.
Overall, the Witcher Season 2 is what people expected and becoming popular day by day. However, it’s interesting to think and know about what could’ve been or what could’ve happened with the above information.
