In the fourth episode of The Witcher titled Of Banquets, Bastards and Burials, fans saw Geralt (Cavill) and bard Jaskier (Joey Batey) in Cintra and was going to the palace of Queen Calanthe (Jodhi May). They were there well before the fall on Cintra from the first episode, which means these happened in the past and before Ciri (Freya Allan) was even born. They were there on the night while Calanthe was choosing a suitor for her daughter Princess Pavetta (Gaia Mondadori). Calanthe rejected all the suitors until a knight wearing a helmet turned up in court and asked for the hand of the princess. The suitor took off his mask and revealed to be Duny (Bart Edwards), a cursed knight who had turned into a hedgehog. Duny said he wanted to marry Pavetta by the Law of Surprise, which meant the princess was technically payment for a past debt and saving the life of Calanthe’s husband.
