The Witcher Netflix came on air with its first season in December 2019. After a prolonged waiting, the second season got a noisy launch on 17th December 2021. The heartwarming ending that The Witcher Netflix S1 gave its audience made us stay patient and wait for the next installment. Finally, it is here, you can watch the series on Netflix.

However, if you want to have a solid grip on the context you can definitely check out the series of amazing books by Andrzej Sapkowski, the author of The Witcher legacy from here.

The former buys the latter from her family with just 4 marks, which was not only petty but also disturbing. The initial sequences somehow mold a cold ambiance whilst projecting this teacher-student duo. But as we move with the season, the bond turns cordial, to much of a mother-daughter stance.

TOTT is here with evidence in support of the argument. So, here we are with-

Top Moments From The Witcher Netflix, That Supports A Cordial Relationship Between Tissaia & Yennefer

A Silent Soft Corner For The Piglet

Disgusted by the fact of being sold for only 4 marks which were too little to get rid of a humped daughter, Yennefer tries to take her life in Aratuza. We find Tissaia waiting for Yen to wake up. Her stern lecture sure has some point though. Nonetheless, her cold words support Yen’s existence and value her individuality.

In their first lesson, Tissaia’s piglet grows and shows ambition. This somehow makes the Rectoress of Aratuza worry about this mess she brought. Her words ‘the best thing a flower could do for us is to die’ is a significant sequence that repeats its importance several times in their life.

During the lighting task, though frustrated Yen tries to make a mess, Tissaia politely tackles the situation with wit and advice her piglet to control her chaos and not become one.

When we find Tissaia changing Anika and the others into an eel, we are assured that Tiassia sees potential in Yen and she believes in her ascension though she shows slow development in her progress. Her expression seems pretty perplexing to both Yennefer and the audience.

Their meeting at Rinde also gives audiences the vibe of a family squabble. The mother warns the daughter to stay put or at least return home, to Aratuza to which the daughter directly rejects asking her to leave and let her stay as she wants.

If you give a deeper thought, you may find Tissaia placing Triss at the entrance and posting Yen at the tower, which was somewhat selfish, isn’t it? Tissaia went full biased during the battle of Sodden, giving Yen the not-so-complicated task during the critical hour.

Being a quarter elf, Yen in many instances faces complications in her stay and her career in Aratuza. Tissaia just like a guardian protects her brat. We find the Chapter considering Fringilla for North and Yennefer for South which was defended by Tissaia. She tries her level best arguing with her comrades to place her beloved student in the court of Aedrin. However, she fails.

While preparing for the Initiation day as well, the conversation between the not by blood mother-daughter is pretty inspiring. Yennefer, at a deeper level, feels a bit of an inferior. The amazing lines, spoken by her rectoress sure have the power to motivate anyone, right?

Then when Tissaia’s brat gets a 360-degree transformation, the rectoress tries her level best to handle the situation and she does too. Although disappointed, she tackles the situation with responsibility without bringing any harm towards Yen or any of her students.

Even in S2, we find when Stegobor tortures the beautiful sorcerer, while Tissaia comes to the rescue. She was infuriated so much that she even calls for the Chapter to decide the fate of Stegobor.

Tissaia Believes Yen And Her Power As A Sorcerer

After quite a long time, we find Yen meeting Vilgeforte where it is revealed that Tissaia claims that Yen is the best student Tissaia has taught.

Then the small peaceful time before the battle of Sodden begins, the mother-daughter duo shares a mug of ale. The chuckling moment between the pair assures the strength of their relationship and how much each of them values each other.

The last time when they met at Rinde, which did not go very well, therefore their reunion back in Aratuza was supposedly not pleasing. But Yen sided with Tissaia when she needed her the most. With just a ‘Please’ from her master and her dream to revolt against The Brotherhood, Yen agreed to support Tissaia on her plan.

Tissaia suggests the most important task to Yennefer of saving the whole unit. She asks her to make her legacy by saving the whole lot in the battle of Sodden. The inspiring words motivate the rogue mage and finally, the piglet turns to be the hero of Sodden.

Tissaia Loves The Messy Sorcerer

Yes, she took a month to finally carve out the name of her beloved student Yen on the list of the deceased. As soon she hears the unexpected visitor’s voice during the Brotherhood meet, the glow on her face and her teary eye prove how happy she is.

We also, find she turns brutal just to extract information from Cahir the prisoner from Nilfgard, and states that she lost someone very special in the battle.

She constantly defends her beloved Yen and requests her to obey the decision of beheading Cahir or submit to the Brotherhood with her reality.

What’s More From This The Witcher Netflix Duo

Well, certainly there are some trifling moments as well. However, this teacher-student duo somehow exhibits the similar father-son relationship that Geralt and Vesemir have. Also, you can see subtle similarities of this duo with what Geralt and Ciri have.

Yennefer is that girl who achieved what she aimed for but failed to get what she desired the most. In both seasons we find she is left unsatisfied. The debut season is where she craves for a baby and the next season is where she craves for her magic to return. Both the times we find her teacher understands her situation but this rogue mage tries to justify her condition with sassy words and a don’t care attitude.

There is definitely more to be seen in the upcoming seasons, the novel readers sure have an updated idea of what this master-student bond has in store. But for The Witcher Netflix watchers, we are looking forward to more.

The moment Tissaia’s piglet betrays the Chapter, the Brotherhood by not beheading the prisoner Cahir, the disappointed look on the Rectoress face sure means something.

In addition just at the end of the season, we find the last conference of the season where Tissaia clearly suggests that she agrees to the plan of putting a bounty on the girl, Ciri, and the ones helping her with protection. We right now cannot come to a proper answer as to what will she do when she finds that Yen is her adoptive mother now. So, let us just wait for the next season to drop as soon as possible, for now.

While Concluding

Throughout the series, we also find several instances that show Yen’s love towards her teacher too. Sure Yen lacks showing her emotion towards the person who loves her, but she agrees to sit put and not make a noise about her being the hero of Sodden when her teacher asks her so.

Tissaia in the entire S1 & S2 shows her affection towards her piglet stating that they are the same and that she understands the pain and frustrations Yen goes through, repeatedly proving her love for this sorcerer. Even Fringilla says so, that Tissaia is a bit biased towards this rogue mage.
