The Witcher show fans don’t know many things that the book fans know, and one of them is a character that will be introduced in the second season, Rience.
The Second Season
The second season of the Witcher is supposedly said to release within 2021. We have no other update on that front, but we have an idea that we will get it soon.
The shooting of the second season is about to end, and a recent announcement from Netflix has confirmed many main characters fans predicted will be appearing.
Who Is This Rience?
Rience is after Geralt now because he is the one standing in his way to capture Ciri. So, the Nilfgaardians are not the only ones after Ciri?
Yeah, you are right. Vilgefortz has asked Rience to track down Ciri and bring her to him, and Rience has been on this job ever since Cintra fell.
Has Been Close to finding Ciri?
Well, thanks to our ever-singing bard, he may have captured Ciri. Rience finds out that Ciri is under the Witcher’s care when he hears Jaskier sing.
Jaskier comes up with a song about the lion cub of Cintra under the Witchers care, which kinda negates the whole ‘she is trying to run away’ notion.
Anyway, Rience kidnaps the bard and is torturing him for information, and before he could tell anything, Yennefer jumps in and give Rience a scar that he will never forget in his lifetime.
Rience was sent out of the academy after two years when he got caught for petty theft. He was then recruited by Kaedwen secret service and was trained to become an assassin.
Queen Calanthe then imprisoned him for not paying his debts. But he later found out that someone had paid it for him and was released.
He goes MIA for a while and surfaces with a lot of cash, and is hella powerful.
Let’s no spoil it completely for you. Both Geralt and Rience think they are setting a trap for each other and do some stupid things there.
Geralt succeeds in outwitting Rience but wasn’t enough time to capture him as Philippa Eilhart does something that Geralt won’t forgive her for.
