The Witcher Season 3 Revives The Geralt Bathtub Meme With Genius Yennefer Twist

Season 3 of The Witcher brought back an iconic moment from season 1: Geralt of Rivia in a bathtub. However, this time, it came with a clever twist involving Yennefer. The Witcher season 3 is being treated as a significant event, not only because of the story but also because it marks Henry Cavill’s final season as Geralt of Rivia. Liam Hemsworth will take over the role in season 4 and beyond, if the series gets renewed. Therefore, season 3 made sure to make the most of Cavill’s talent and presence.

After Yennefer’s betrayal in season 2, season 3 focused on Geralt, Ciri, and Yennefer trying to stay safe as Ciri becomes a target for many on the Continent. However, rebuilding trust between Geralt and Yennefer was not easy, and they struggled to reconnect and work together for Ciri’s safety. Eventually, they made amends and reignited their romance, giving The Witcher season 3 the opportunity to revisit the viral bathtub moment from season 1, but with an interesting twist.

Netflix’s The Witcher has incorporated various Easter eggs and references from Andrzej Sapkowski’s books and the popular video games. One such reference is the famous bathtub scene, which originated in the 2015 game, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Fans were delighted to see this scene adapted in the Netflix series, and it appeared three times throughout the show. In season 1, Geralt had two bathtub scenes, one after a muddy and bloody mission, and another when he sought Yennefer’s help with a djinn. Yennefer joined him in the latter scene, but they had just met. In season 3, the third bathtub moment occurred, this time with Geralt and Yennefer reminiscing and discussing their experiences together after a party at Aretuza.

The bathtub scene in season 3 introduced a humorous twist as Yennefer jokingly mentioned it took her a long time to get Geralt back in a bathtub. This remark not only referenced their time apart but also acknowledged the viral popularity of Geralt’s bathtub scenes and the absence of one in season 2.

The reason Geralt’s bathtub scene became a viral sensation is that it provides a rare moment of tranquility for the usually intense witcher. In the games, Geralt relaxes in a small tub, which adds to the memorable nature of the scene. In the TV series, Geralt has more space but still captivates audiences with his physique, leading to countless memes. While the bathtub scene in season 3 might not be as memorable as those in the first season due to its serious context, future seasons might continue this trend. It’s unlikely that the team behind The Witcher would miss the opportunity to give Liam Hemsworth’s Geralt his own bathtub scene, but the audience’s reception remains uncertain.

The Witcher season 3 brought back one of season 1’s most viral moments: Geralt of Rivia in a bathtub, but this time, it arrived with a genius Yennefer twist. Netflix’s The Witcher season 3 is being treated as a big event, not just due to this season’s story but because it’s Henry Cavill’s final season as the title witcher, Geralt of Rivia. Liam Hemsworth will take over as Geralt in The Witcher season 4 and beyond (if the series is renewed for more), so season 3 seized Cavill’s talent and presence as much as it could.

Following Yennefer’s betrayal in The Witcher season 2, season 3 saw Geralt, Ciri, and Yennefer doing their best to stay safe as half the Continent is now going after Ciri. However, it wasn’t easy for Yennefer to regain Geralt’s trust, and season 3 saw them struggling to connect again and work together for Ciri’s safety and benefit. Geralt and Yennefer eventually made amends and rekindled their romance, which allowed The Witcher season 3 to bring back a viral Geralt moment from season 1 but with an interesting twist: Geralt in a bathtub.

Yennefer Mocks The Geralt Of Rivia Bathtub Meme In The Witcher Season 3

The Witcher season 3 Geralt and Yennefer in a bathtub

Netflix’s The Witcher has made sure to include various Easter eggs and references to both Andrzej Sapkowski’s books and the video games that made this universe so popular. Falling into the latter category is the viral bathtub scene, which can be found in the 2015 game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and to the delight of fans, it made its way to the Netflix adaptation… three times. The Witcher season 1 had two bathtub scenes starring Geralt, the first one when Jaskier made him take a bath following a mission that left Geralt covered in mud and blood, and the second when Yennefer made him take a bath when he asked her for help with the djinn. Yennefer joined Geralt that time, but they had just met.

The third bathtub moment in The Witcher arrived in season 3, and Geralt was once more accompanied by Yennefer, but in very different circumstances. Following the party in Aretuza, Yennefer and Geralt are shown reminiscing and analyzing what they saw, lived, and learned that night, and at one point they are taking a bath together. This time, the bathtub scene comes with a fun Yennefer twist as she mocks the moment by saying it took her “far too long” to get him back in a bathtub. This isn’t just a reference to all the time they spent apart, but also to how viral Geralt’s bathtub scenes became and how The Witcher season 2 didn’t include one.

The Witcher season 1 Geralt in a bathtub

Geralt’s bathtub scene didn’t become a meme after its adaptation to the Netflix series, as it had already gone viral when The Witcher III was released. The reason for Geralt’s bathtub moment becoming a viral sensation is that it’s a rare moment of calm and peace for the witcher. In the games, Geralt is relaxing in a wooden tub he doesn’t really fit in, which makes the scene even more memorable. Geralt was given a lot more space in the Witcher TV series, but this time, Cavill’s physique was the main reason the scene went viral and was the subject of countless memes.

The Witcher season 3’s bathtub scene with Geralt and Yennefer might not end up being as memorable as those from the first season, mostly due to the context around it, which was a lot more serious, but future seasons could continue this peculiar trend. It’s unlikely the team behind Netflix’s The Witcher would miss the chance to give Liam Hemsworth’s Geralt his own bathtub scene, but it’s hard to say how it would be received by the audience.
