Yennefer and Geralt race to Kaer Morhen.

The witchers are calling for Ciri. Geralt finds her by the medallion tree. He offers himself if Voleth Meir releases Ciri. Jaskier runs in with the stone Yennefer gave him to give Geralt.

When the witchers try to move in on her, Voleth Meir has Ciri scream, causing the medallion tree to split and fall apart, revealing a monolith hidden inside its trunk.

A second scream causes the monolith to shatter. The shards strike at the witchers, killing some, and then regroup behind her, creating a portal through which monsters enter.

When she awakes, Geralt asks her to send Voleth Meir back through the monolith. She tries and all three of them are sucked through to an alien landscape. In the distance, they see riders on horseback. Voleth Meir forms into another rider, laughing.
