Witcher showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich explains season 2’s most controversial change

You should watch The Witcher season 2 if you haven’t. I will spoil one of the twists and one of the most significant departures from the books if you don’t. So, season 2’s second episode features Geralt and Kaer Morhen. It looks very much like video games. Ciri meets Lambert, Coen, and Eskel during her stay. However, one brother is more interesting than the other. Eskel is infected by an evil monster, which is a significant departure. He’s completely transformed by the end of the episode and must be killed by Geralt.

The scarred Eskel, who survives the books but also appears in the games to help Geralt pull off a drunken prank that involved cross-dressing at one stage, isn’t exactly happy with it. It was inevitable that it would surface during the Behind-the-scenes documentary The Witcher: Unlocked. “Can you explain why you decided to kill him so quickly?” Felicia Day, the host of the show, asks. “Because people are curious.”

Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, showrunner, replies that “in all honesty, there was a brand-new witcher that [we] had never met before, that we hadn’t heard of, and we suddenly were like, ‘Oh! Our audience will meet Coen, Lambert, Eskel, and John. Who is going to die? John will die. We thought it through a lot, and I know Eskel fans feel the same way. His death, however, is what Geralt needs. It drives Geralt to find out the truth about Ciri. He knows he will lose her and his brothers if it’s not done quickly.

It’s an unexpected moment in a season whose finale is well-known to fans of the books. It seems that anything could happen from this point forward. Funnily, actors felt the same way. Paul Bullion, who played Lambert, said it kept them on their toes. He looks at the script, miming to see if he is about to die in the next episode. “Now, we’re like no one is safe.”
