What is the plot of the Witcher Season 1?
Consisting of eight episodes, the Witcher Season 1 made its debut in December 2019. The show opens with Geralt battling a monster called kikimora. After defeating it, he goes to Blaviken, a small town, where he meets Renfri and the mage Stregobor who are enemies. They each ask him for help to defeat the other, but he refuses to help either of them. However, later on, he defeats Renfri and her army to prevent her from killing innocent bystanders for revenge. On the other hand, Yennefer, a young girl who later becomes a powerful sorceress, gets bullied due to her deformities.
Her father ends up selling her for just four marks to a mage named Tissaia, who takes her to Aretuza, a magical academy, to teach her the art of becoming a mage. After learning a few skills, Yennefer undergoes a powerful and painful magical procedure to alter her appearance and become beautiful. Then, she uses her charms to persuade the king of Aedirn to choose her as his mage. She then meets Geralt and tries to use him to gain the power of a djinn. However, he realizes this and is successfully able to stop her from harnessing the djinn’s power. They both even end up falling in love with each other. However, they do have a falling out, and Yennefer angrily leaves Geralt.

She is informed that she is the child of surprise and is tied to Geralt through the law of surprise. She must find him to be safe. Geralt saves her from the dryads who want to make her a dryad too. He then leaves her, but they do meet again and reunite.
The last episode of the season features the Battle for Sodden Hill. The Nilfgaard mercilessly kills many mages but is defeated by Yennefer and her friends.
