Ahead of the first season of upcoming fantasy action series The Witcher, Netflix has released the chapter titles for all eight episodes of the show accompanied by brief descriptions that cleverly make up a poem.
Netflix has also released a new poster for the highly anticipated adaptation of Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski’s novels/videogames.
Check out the titles and poster below!
The End’s Beginning – “A monster slain, a butcher named.”
Four Marks – “We look at a sorceress’s earlier days.”
Betrayer Moon – “A picky eater, a family shamed.”
Of Banquets, Bastards and Burials – “The Law of Surprise is how one repays.”
Bottled Appetites – “A fateful meeting, a bard is maimed.”
Rare Species – “The hunt for a dragon is underway.”
Before a Fall – “A return to before a kingdom is flamed.”
Much More – “The Witcher Family as you all like to say.”
Did someone, somewhere, summon a djinn to then wish for all 8 chapter titles? Here you go. Now does anyone know a doctor to check Jaskier's vitals?
