Scenes From a Marriage is the last of the quests fulfilling Olgierd's three wishes in the Hearts of Stone expansion.

Journal entry[]

With two wishes down and one more to go, Geralt reported back to Olgierd. There he received his third and final task, which, following in the vein of the its predecessors, seemed nigh unto impossible to complete. Olgierd wanted Geralt to find and bring him the violet rose he had given his wife the last time he saw her. As this was many years ago, and flowers are not noted for their longevity, the rose had certainly disintegrated by now. Yet since Geralt had grown used to finding the unfindable and doing the undoable, he nevertheless set out to try to recover this flower of yesteryear.
Olgierd's abandoned residence was haunted by the ghost of his wife, Iris von Everec – or more accurately, by deadly spectral emanations coming from her dormant spirit. Geralt had to overcome many obstacles before finally awakening Iris' ghost from her tortured sleep so he could talk to her about the violet rose. After he did so, he traveled to the world of the ghost's imagination to revive memories repressed within it and defeat the embodiments of Iris' fears.
Geralt asks Iris for the rose:
In short, it was one of Geralt's more unusual adventures. At its end, our hero emerged from the imagined world with a very tangible rose in hand, ready to deliver to Olgierd in completion of his wish. The price of obtaining this rose? The ultimate end of Iris von Everec.
Geralt does not take the rose from Iris:
At its end, our hero emerged from the imagined world not with the rose itself, but with a very faithful likeness of it painted by Iris von Everec herself. In this way he fulfilled the letter of Olgierd's wish – the rose had been delivered, though in painted form, and with the eyes of Iris von Everec staring out of its canvas.



  • After burying Iris, Geralt can place one of three items on her grave: an Ornamented brush, Iris' sketchbook, or a Portrait of Iris and Olgierd. It does not seem to matter what Geralt says and what item he places on her grave though. It appears to be fitting to mention liking her paintings and placing her sketchbook on her grave.
