The Witcher season 2 is now streaming on Netflix! Fans around the world are binge-watching the new season of the Netflix original series and are learning more about The Continent and all of these great characters.

Ciri, played by Freya Allan, is obviously one of three big characters in the series. In season 2, we learned a lot more about Ciri, her history, her powers, and of course, her family.

We also learned officially who Ciri’s dad is — it’s not Geralt — and why that’s important for the future of the series. Remember, The Witcher season 3 is already in the work.

Spoilers ahead for The Witcher season 2

Who is Ciri’s dad?

So, in the first season, we thought it was revealed that Duny was Ciri’s father, and that is true!

We just believed that Duny, aka Ciri’s dad, had died with her mom, Pavetta. That is the part that is not true!

According to Quora, Duny is actually Emperor Emhyr var Emreis of Nilfgaard.

In one of the final scenes of the season, we see Geralt asking how Nilfgaard knows about Ciri’s powers, which is why they started this war in the first place. In the last big scene of the season, we also see the reveal that Emhyr is actually Ciri’s father.

The show does a good job to make it clear in the finale by showing Ciri getting visited by her parents when she’s possessed by Voleth Meir.

Who is The White Flame?

If you are keeping track at home, that also means The White Flame, the leader of Nilfgaard, is Emhyr var Emreis.

It will be really interesting to see where this story goes from here. For those who watched the new season, we’ll have to see how The Wild Hunt factors into the story, if and when Ciri will find out her father is still alive, and what Emhyr’s next move will be.

We’ll find out when The Witcher season 3 hits Netflix!
