The Witcher Season 3 Volume 2 reviews 2 a rollercoaster of action, emotion, magic, stories, mayhem, political intrigue, and surprise characters. The action-packed episodes will keep you hooked, but there are some key aspects you would wish to be explored more in the main cast’s journey.
Netflix released the Witcher Season 3 Volume 2, which held fans’ breath for quite a while as it was the last time they saw their favorite Henry Cavill as the White Wolf. Netflix’s strategy to release The Witcher season 3 in two volumes was a clever creative choice but did it serve the purpose, or was it a failed attempt? Let’s find out in our latest The Witcher Season 3 Volume 2 review.
The Witcher Season 3 Volume 2 Review – The Netflix Series is Strong, Engaging, and Progressively Slow! Henry Cavill’s Last Appearance as Geralt of Rivia is a Treat to Your Eyes
The Witcher Season 3 Volume 2 review is summed up as one strong and engaging episode, the second floppy and slow progression episode, and the third episode was a season-4 setter episode. The series had its moments, but it was hard to digest what they had done to the series we have loved since 2019.
The Witcher season 3 volume 2 consists of three episodes:
1. Episode 6 – Everybody Has a Plan Till They Are Punched in the Face
Directed by Loni Peristere and written by Javier Grillo-Marxauch
Episode 6 was the strongest of the three and packed everything we can expect from the finale episode, a coup, an epic battle at Aretuza, a painful death of a loved one, and some deaths of the characters we don’t love as much.
Episode 6 is the most engaging episode, with top-notch action and each character in its finest form. It is filled with exciting plot twists, and the performance of Henry Cavill and Anya Chalotra are praiseworthy.
2. Episode 7 – Out of the Fire, Into the Frying Pan
Directed by Bola Ogun and written by Matthew D’Ambrosio
Episode 7 is a 50-minute long and very-long display of Ciri (Freya Allan) wandering in a desert on the journey of self-discovery. Freya Allan shines as Ciri in channelizing the emotions of a confused teenager who has been given immense powers.
The actor didn’t miss the mark and performed well in the episode primarily catered to her. While praising the actor, the episode in itself tests the patience of the viewer. The episode is slow and tedious, and the story progression does not seem to benefit the series as much.
3. Episode 8 – The Cost of Chaos
Directed by Bola Ogun and written by Mike Ostrowski and Troy Dangerfield
The build-up from episode 7 has us prepared for the finale, but the fan in us was holding onto expect the epic finale episode. The finale episode of The Witcher season 3 volume 2 could have been faster in execution but did deliver in showcasing the villains trying to take control of the continent and the magic world.
The villainous strategies and plans lay out engaging content on the screen, making us look for what is coming next. The final season is neither that good and not that bad. It found balance in between and successfully sets the premise for season 4. Henry Cavill fans might be disappointed by the farewell they bid him.
Other than the episodic breakdown, the highlights of the series include the power-packed action sequences and stunning visuals complementing the magic witch-wizard theme of the series. The main star cast showcased such convincing acting performances. The series is cinematically appealing in showing every arc of the story.

Henry Cavill is a treat to watch as Geralt of Rivia, and it is hard to digest that he won’t be a part of the future seasons. With the wrap-up of season 3, it will be interesting to know what season 4 has in store.
