Head upstairs to the first landing, open the door and enter, and open the next door on the left to see Ciri. Answer how you wish and change the subject. Triss has been searching for Philippa. She has been transformed permanently into an owl. Triss has a plan but needs a fountain. You suggest the area by the Passiflora. Head there to continue the quest or later if you have other things to do.

If you let Keir go to Radovid during For the Advancement of Learning, Triss infomrs you of her fate. She asks you to take care of her body triggering the quest A Final Kindness.

When ready you can meet Triss at the fountain. If you convinced her to stay with you after Now or Never and didn't ask Yen to stay with you during Last Wish, she will ask you to join her at her new position. Answer how you wish, she will attempt to ensure you have a place with her.

Head with her past the bridge and to the bathhouse. Dijkstra's men are fleeing when you arrive and you hear explosions. Head inside and speak to Dijkstra and answer how you wish. Leap into the main area and fight hte henchmen. Head east to the bath chamber and drop down the pool into where you met Bart in Get Junior. Two more henchmen appear here. Head to the hole and speak to Bart. You can demand he let you pass and fight him or convince him to let you pass, which he does. Take the tunnel north and east and around to the west to a large chamber where Philippa will be.

She will summon a golem to go after you. It's a tough foe so take caution when battling it. Once defeated, head up the stone steps and leap across the gap, walking clockwise around the balcony. Move at a quick pace and she will hear you so keep it quiet. Once close, leap and tackle her.

Convince her to meet Triss outside, and Dijkstra will stop you. Tell him to relent, either in a calm tone or violently. If pleasant he will let you through, and if you agreed to help assassinate the king, he will speak of the plan but not with Philippa present. This will trigger Reason of State. If  you are gruff, a scuffle starts and his leg will break.

Triss will meet you at the bathhouse entrance and opens a portal to conclude the quest.
