I stopped reading that manga years ago unfortunately. Last I read, they had just gotten to the fairy island and were being led inside by a fairy.
EDIT: Did a minor catch up by reading a synopsis. Here's where I've thought this manga was headed for years now, and what I still believe; Once Griffith starts eliminating enough people, Guts will unite the kingdoms, but during this time Caska will loathe everything Guts has done to get them where they are and blame him before killing herself, but while this is going on, the city they are in is being sacked and everyone is going to die anyway. Guts realizes he's all alone an everything he has ever done has been in vain so to finally kill Griffith, he will use his egg to summon the Godhand in one final act of revenge sacrificing all of his people in the process (since they were going to die anyway) and instead of wishing for immortality or to become some super demon, Guts desire is to go back in time and stop Griffith. This pushes him back to the time of King Gaiseric, of which Guts becomes that person, and perhaps the little witch follows him and helps guts don the Skull Knight armor so his soul is not destroyed during the time travel. Hence... the repeating loop of destiny and causality, never ending with the little witch becoming the older witch (who cares for herself ironically), and Guts destined to repeat history forever. Just my theory.
My other theory was that Guts lost his mind and imagined the whole eclipse, and Caska getting raped repeatedly in front of him and him getting his arm and eye chopped off made Guts insane and in reality, Guts is completely insane and imagining everything starting since the eclipse, and when he fought the butterfly creatures, he actually went into the nearest random village and just slaughtered a bunch of innocent children because he couldn't handle that Caska had a miscarriage from being rapped so brutally and imagined the whole monster angle. Hell, maybe he was surrounded by the cities inhabitants who were beating the shit out of him and he was seeing this butterfly thing hitting him, who knows. Point is, in this theory, everytime Guts fought someone more powerful than him, his mind fabricated something, such as with Zodd the first time, then slowly, Guts became more and more schizophrenic over time.
