Ep 11

Spoiler:

- The pillaging is making the vikings want to convert to Christianity
- "You've been too Christian, did you forget about Valhalla?"
- Spear right through the fucking head
- Thorkell just gives Canute back because he expects they're going to fight Laughing
- Jesus Christ, Thorkell o_o
- I wonder if Canute's a woman. Hasn't spoken, always wrapped in robes, they make such a fuss over "come here boy" and the like. Could just be a Griffith but I do wonder.
- "He disappeared?" while the knife's in his neck
- THORKELL
- YEAH TELL HIM ABOUT THORS
- DON'T LET HIM DOWN THORFINN

Spoiler:

-Cheddar had great cheese
-People starting to consider whether they should convert to Christianity, but it's still somewhat a joke
-Thorkell thinks everything's a game and never understands why other people don't seem to find it fun, he's like a really big dog that doesn't know it's really big.
-hostage-taking to get Sweyn-sempai to notice him Laughing
-holy fuck that spear through the eye based on a little rustling!! Shiny/thrilled
-he gives the hostages back so that he can have a good fight where they don't hold back
-it sucks to be Ragnar, no one listens to him
-setting fires to control the battlefield, Askeladd's a fucking smart bastard
-Thorkell's surprisingly smart too when it comes to fighting-related things, he's the only one who realizes it's not a natural fire
-Thorfinn charging in on a flaming horse Shiny/thrilled
-Thorkell sounds like a proud parent putting his kid's picture on the fridge, except the picture is that Thorfinn cut off his fingers Laughing It's kind of adorable
-Thorkell saying Thors was the only person stronger than him, and Thorfinn's completely shaken by hearing someone talk about Thors with respect, after all Askeladd's insults
-the two guys walking side by side in the smoke suddenly realizing they're not on the same side Laughing
-I might have lol'd at the rain of arrows coming down immediately to kill them both, too Lurking/sketchy
-Askeladd's actually surprised Thorfinn managed to get the prince
-the priest picking his nose in the background rofl
-they finally show Canute's pretty face, does he just wear the helmet all the time so no one knows how pretty he is?? Maybe he is a woman? That'd be a pretty big historical change.

Spoiler:

- "Your accent almost sounds like my people." Welsh? Scots? Oirish?
- I legit wonder if there's people with freaky hearing like The Ear IRL or if this is just some anime shit
- Ha, the voice actor pronounced "Leicester" right (probably because of that massively famous soccer thing a few years ago)
- Almost sounds like Askeladd is going to hand Canute back without extortion
- Eyyyy The Welsh
- And their crazy as fuck words
- Askeladd being diplomatic, not wanting to stretch the resources of a small kingdom thin, even though he's a goddamn pillaging pirate
- *Canute sees a Hawk* Me: NO, WE'RE NOT DOING THAT
- Welsh Commander approves of Thorfinn
- The drunk priest getting in on the reward banter
- "Love?" "What's that? Never heard of it."
- Oh shit, he's gonna start converting some of them to Christianity
- ... Is Askeladd starting to think of Thorfinn as a future leader?
- The legend that "Artorius" will return from Avalon. King Arthur Shiny/thrilled
- Oh shit, Leif sees a slave that looks like Thorfinn
- HORSE ARROWED

Spoiler:

-I love the natural details, the fields touched with frost, the trees mostly bare
-oh ho! Lydia's not a norse name, he's got to be half-British or something
-Ear can hear how many soldiers from two days' march away Shiny/thrilled I think there's some physics-based support for it being possible (supposedly elephants can do it through their feet) and it's definitely a pre-anime idea, there's historical reports of white settlers in the US observing indigenous hunters doing it, though not necessarily accurate ones, but I wonder how reliable it would be or how far it could actually be done, if a human can actually do it.
-those reinforcements ain't going to be Sweyn's people
-the ships coming out of the fog
-ohhh, they're Welsh
-those gorgeous misty hills, Wales is such a magical-seeming place
-Canute interrupts important strategic discussion to have a hawk caught for him, I'm hoping he's onto something with it flying low and has a reason, rather than just being childish, given where history goes he can't be that useless?
-Canute hiding from Thorfinn's glare Laughing
-can't even talk with the Welsh commander to negotiate, maybe he is that useless Shrug
-even though the priest's so unimpressive his words are starting to leave an impression. And you can see why, too, Christianity has some really compelling ways of looking at things. But there's no way they didn't know what love is, were they just playing around or what?
-thinking of Thors, and "the more you fall for a man, the less things go how you want," and maybe Canute's what they need - what's he thinking there, something about Thors' peacefulness, or that one person's strength ultimately doesn't mean that much, or is he thinking of Thorfinn rather than Canute...?
-hinting at Canute as a possible King Arthur returning
-ambush of archers from above, just like when Thors died
-Leif!!!
-A kid who looks like Thorfinn (it's not really him in a flashforward, right? looked younger than him), and Leif starts crying Sad

- These days, a sheep must wear a wolf's skin in order to graze
- It's nice of the Highwaymen to let this little drama play out
- Oh shiii, I never knew the legend of King Arthur came out of something real
- OH SHIT THAT OPENING WASN'T THORFINN
- Askeladd's not gonna ransom off Canute to the highest bidder but use him for high status and power, damn
- "I hate the Danes." God damnnnn
- "Conehead" rofl
- "I heard they eat humans"
- "We're going to eat you" rofl rofl rofl

Spoiler:

-Goddamnit, new character who looks way too similar!
-New song! The art style looks kind of different in bits of the opening
-Bjorn can read the situation even though he doesn't understand the words
-sheep wearing a wolf's skin to graze
-Canute survived the fox nest by never standing out or making noise, and now those are the skills he's stuck potentially becoming king with Sad  They should have stuck with the wolf metaphor, then he'd be a sheep among wolves who put on a rabbit skin instead of a wolf skin to survive
-Askeladd apologizing for trying to push Canute, what's his angle?
-I love that Welsh scenery
-the way both sides are flat-out admitting that it's all just about appearances and Askeladd apologizing for making the other guy look bad.
-Even Bjorn didn't know Askeladd spoke Welsh, dude always has a trick up his sleeve
-Claiming he's King Arthur's blood line, I'd thought the Arthur talk was hinting at Canute being his reincarnation. But AFAIK, none of the early Welsh sources suggest he had any surviving children. I guess it could be indirect line.
-ohhhh, it's not a new character, it's young Askeladd, damn he looks a lot like Thorfinn
- Askeladd proposing to be a king-maker and insider for Wales
-He hates the Danes
-Ragnar and Thorfinn get a pass on the weapons b/c they're both too fucking stubborn to deal with Laughing
-everyone gawking at the possibly-cannibal, monstrous Danes of legend
-some scenes they seem to be using heavier outlines and making the people look more cartoonish against the landscape than usual. I hope they're not going to make a habit of it, it looks clumsy
-Canute finally speaks up to defend himself and Ragnar's eyes pop out like a cartoon awooogah wolf Laughing
-"This is the first time someone's treated me like that!" "Then it was a good experience, right?"  rofl people who don't give a fuck are the best

Spoiler:
It's debateable, there are a couple of Roman leaders who it's thought he might be, as well as I think a Welsh king or two, usually  but there's no definitive decision on who it was or if it definitely was a real person to begin with rather than just a purely legendary figure.

Spoiler:

- A girl dancing around with a wedding ring. This isn't going to end well
- D'awwww, the Priest told them about Judas and Jesus and now the Super Blonde Bros are making sure he knows they'd never betray each other for silver (probably...)
- The Super Blonde Bros just compared love to the battlefield and the Priest slapped it down by saying they wouldn't have his back if he entered the battlefield so it's not the same thing
- Holy shit the freaky Priest eyes rofl
- Mannnn, the gloom of the snowstorm fading away to seeing a village they're going to pillage :/
- So Ragnarok and the Rapture are based on similar stories?
- She's scared of the devil because she stole a ring
- "You don't have to worry about making it through the winter." Askeladd is the worst sick
- So she didn't freeze to death, implying she'll survive and tell others about them?

Spoiler:

-the weight of knowing God's watching and the image of the heavy snow on the rooftops
-priest's view of love isn't like a brother you can trust to have your back, but maybe it's a warrior that could have killed everyone dying instead
-"they're following my orders without question," but as soon as he says it one falls to the ground Laughing
-huh, the Christians are waiting for the apocalypse soon too
-do they not get/learn about confession in this time? She doesn't seem to think there's a way to fix it now that she's already committed a sin... Okay, just went and looked it up, it sounds like the practice of absolution for sins was only really solidified around 12th century, so I guess she wouldn't have necessarily had the concept
-wow, the priest tried to warn the village, I never took him for the type to stand up for his convictions
-how completely they weren't expecting any kind of attack, that it's not till the strangers who've already busted in and gotten violent outright say "give me your food. I'm going to kill you," that they realize what's happening, even though they'd just been talking about the Danes
-the villager thinks "you won't have to worry about getting through the winter" means they're gonna leave them some food Sad
-the coordination of them all swinging their weapons at once, it's almost like a ritual killing
-the darkness and the wind and snow feel so overwhelming
-staring up at the distant beauty of the northern lights and knowing god's not going to take her up there with her family
-and she feels elated, like the fact that people can do awful things is a kind of freedom. The elation of despair, I guess.

Spoiler:

- Thorkell trying to eat and talk at the same time Laughing
- Is the Ear going to get converted to Christianity by having to listen to the praying Monks all the time on guard duty?
- Canute raises his voice and suddenly gets backbone when someone questions God. Holy War time
- Awwww shiiiit, she did survive and she did tell on them
- Canute is a true waifu
- I bet Canute got in trouble for cooking because that's servant's work
- Yup
- Thorfinn's immediately up and ready to cut the throat of a dude who rushes in on his delicious broth
- They're totally going to assassinate Ragnar now and pretend it was the English, aren't they
- Yep, there it is
- I wonder if they're gonna try to replace Canute with Thorfinn and then the King will be fine with it because at least Thorfinn is a warrior
- Oh man, Askeladd might've fucked up, he's now thrust into an internal political power struggle
- Did the King send Canute out to die in war so that Harald would become the new King as bloodlessly as possible? He jumped to the conclusion that Canute was dead at the beginning when Floki reported he was juts missing.
- Oh shit, he did
- All the Danes who die see the afterlife or Heaven as a sunny, green field. It's Vinland Saga because they're not finding somewhere that looks like the legend of Vinland, but it's because they're all gonna die and it's the last thing they're all gonna see.

Spoiler:

-the king's reaction to Canute being missing is fucking cold, I'm beginning to suspect he never planned on him surviving
-the English don't seem to be enjoying having Thorkell on their side anymore Laughing
-the winter light and glowing snow gives such a holy look to the cross, they're good at quietly showing why maybe the Vikings would start thinking about Christianity even while it seems powerless and out of place in their world
-The Priest losing faith makes Canute actually get mad for once
-ohhh, it's as much about being afraid of losing faith in his own father as anything to do with religion (and talking about fathers is 100% the way to get Thorfinn interested)
-The girl made it to safety and got help, way to go even though it made things worse for the main characters, I'm still rooting for you, rando we're probably never going to see again  cheers
-Thorkell's evil grin at getting a shot at Canute and Thorfinn and extending the war, that's more than just a massive puppy dog who jumps at a fight
-"Let's do what we discussed as well"  that doesn't sound good
-the soldiers questioning if Askeladd's lost his luck, we're starting to hear the first footsteps of his downfall someday approaching
-Thorfinn totally doesn't know what to make of having a nice meal after all this time
-A secret cooking hobby because a prince isn't supposed to do a slave's job
-And Ragnar trying to soften the king's rejection and say it was just b/c he was busy
-ohshit, they're going to kill Ragnar!!
-that was a fucking cowardly way to do it, too
-Askeladd and Ragnar standing around calmly talking while he's dying
-holy fuck, Sweyn did actively plan for Canute to get killed to avoid a succession war, and now that's what Askeladd's got on his hands
-that look on Askeladd's face as he refuses Ragnar's dying wish to see Canute a last time
-still wanting to lie to Canute that his father could be happy with him :/

- Shears. Probably gonna threaten to cut off his dick
- Oh, fingernail torture.
- Didn't need to see that, man sick
- Askeladd justifying himself through the history of the British Isles
- Brooo, the Englishman yelled "Thorkell" and now all the Danes are like "SHIT, THORKELL" and Askeladd's all "God dammit, he's fucking up our morale"
- A Death March to lose Thorkell
- Is Askeladd prepping to abandon his men? Even the brothers are starting to question him.
- Oh shit, he's already ahead of them, the brothers and some of the men are gonna try to capture the Prince and trade him to join Thorkell's army
- The Ear's gotta know what's up too.
- The spears and pikes in the morning sun make it look like the hill is gleaming Shiny/thrilled
- "He's still far away!" After he just fucking skewered four dudes with one spear throw
- It's going down

-Eww, the ear!
-trying to make Canute become the kind of lord he wants to serve under, he said he was kidding but I could buy that he means it in some sense, he says a lot of things to Bjorn that are kidding but maybe not. Though I don't think he could do that and still make him his puppet, so even if he on some level wants to, I doubt he would in the end.
-torturing the prisoner, yeugh!  sick  Even Bjorn agrees with me.
-history lesson to point out that Anglos/Saxons are beasts too
-Eyeball  Ewwww!  And now the nose, are they trying to torture him or us??
-The total terror in some of their eyes just hearing the name Thorkell
-Canute tantruming like a child over being carried away from Ragnar's body
-Bjorn and Thorfinn's expressions when Askeladd slaps the prince
-no wonder Askeladd was fine with deserters, Thorkell just slaughters them all anyway
-Askeladd quietly putting the prince under Bjorn and Thorfinn's watch to prepare for betrayal while the traitors are nearly ready to go
-skewers four people with one spear from crazy-far away and everyone's had enough
-Askeladd's surrounded by his men turning on him, with Thorkell close behind, Thorkell's scary grin, and we fucking end there?!?

-giving Askeladd the chance to leave the prince and go
-little Askeladd's sick mother telling him about Avalon, and it looks almost like Vinland
-"Serve the king," maybe Askeladd really meant what he said to Bjorn about Canute :/
-You think he's going to try and move them with heartwarming memories, but instead he says he hated them for the last decade, and starts killing, Askeladd's such an unpredictable bastard Shiny/thrilled
-sending Canute off to safety while he stays behind to deal with his mutinous men, that's fucking heroic, I wouldn't have expected it of Askeladd
-Thorkell's mad they started fighting without him
-Thorfinn's out of throwing knives and starting to get nervous Askeladd hasn't come yet, he's gonna be so mad if Askeladd heroically sacrificed himself and he doesn't get to kill him
-Bjorn's face when they ignore his super-dramatic "fight me" and go for the horses instead rofl
-Thorfinn's being thrown from the cart turning into a badass attack Shiny/thrilled
-shit, is he going back to make sure he gets to kill Askeladd instead of protecting Canute?? rofl
-Bjorn brings out the berserker mushrooms, fuck, he could easily land up killing Canute too
-Askeladd's almost down, but still manages to sound cool. WAIT, that sidelong look he gave, is he counting on Thorfinn coming back to stop anyone else from killing him??!
-that fucking last fight, cleaving the guy in two, goddamn he's fantastic
-"I couldn't wait any longer for the true king to return from Avalon"  Crying
-Thorfinn's look of terror that they might kill Askeladd before he gets there
-Thorkell shows up and Askeladd refuses to see him without an appointment, what a suave bastard Laughing
-Thorkell's total unimpressedness to the point of elaborate nose-picking at Torgrim's attempts to talk to him
-Kills everyone but Askeladd b/c no one else there's worth talking to/fighting with properly
-making them pick up their weapons and fight so at least they'll go to Valhalla
-Torgrim goes catatonic with fear, this troop really turned out to be cowards in the end
-Thorfinn's insane rush to get to Askeladd, the fear in his voice when he tells Thorkell not to kill him, he doesn't give a fuck about having to go through the giant, the only thing he fears is not being the one to make that kill. How's he going to handle it when Askeladd's finally dead

Spoiler:

- Oh man, did Askeladd become a seafarer to look for Avalon aka Vinland?
- Thors probably looked like a "true King" to him in that little moment where he asked him to lead them
- "I actually hated you guys." Oh my god
- Holy shit his Dane hatred is coming out
- NOW HE'S KILLING THEM HOLY SHIT
- "Let me join, let me join!" Fucking Thorkell Laughing
- "Hey, I told you to attack me, not the horses!" rofl
- Is it funny that I cringed harder at the horse getting an axe in the brain than I did any of the people?
- Thorfinn's either abandoned the Prince to go kill Askeladd, or he's going to rescue Askeladd. Definitely assume the first
- The fucking eyepoke
- Cuts a dude in half like he's a cartoon (which I guess they are...)
- Askeladd's having the exact same thing happen to him that he did to Thors
- The blood and weapons on the snow Shiny/thrilled
- At least letting them pick up their weapons so they can go to Valhalla when they die
- "If you call yourself a warrior, then try feeling good when you die."
- "I feel your pain, Torgrim" as Thorkell is stretching. Holy shit, Askeladd rofl rofl rofl
- Did he just fucking uppercut a horse
- Don't end fucking there, for the love of God, Odin, Artorius and everyone else

There's no Vinland Saga episode this week, and next week's episode is titled "Transcription" which sounds like a recap episode to me.

My mistake, looks like a full episode

Spoiler:

- The slow-motion axe cutting through the kicked-up snow
- Thorkell KO's his own guy for laughing because he considers Thorfinn a warrior
- D'awww, Ragnar raised Canute normally instead of like a viking badass
- Just sitting back and casually watching Bjorn berserk out on a band of vikings
- Thorfinn's swordsmanship is average
- Canute facing the meaning of love from a drunk priest, Thorfinn facing the meaning of being a warrior traitor. I'm still wondering if they'll pull a switcheroo, Canute will go live with Thorfinn's family as him and Thorfinn will be the rampaging Canute of history
- The hand reaching for the apple of Eden while Canute wonders why there's no love among humans, it's because we were expelled from paradise
- What the fuck, Thorkell just punted a field goal with Thorfinn rofl
- The sudden bass in Canute's voice
- "We'll create our own paradise." Vinland?

Spoiler:

-this is not a recap, this is THE FUCKING DUEL!! Shiny/thrilled
-the soldiers' reactions when Thorfinn trashtalks Thorkell rofl
-and then dude gets smashed with an axe, b/c Thorkell doesn't take anyone laughing at his best friend opponent
-Canute's perfect curls spiralling beautifully around his face, how has this guy been on a desperate march through brutal weather and kept hair like that??
-when Ragnar appears to him, the whole scene looks stylized like some mystical boundary between life and death
-the happy childhood of Ragnar raising him like a farmer raising his own child
-Bjorn berserkering the fuck out of everything while priest dude just calmly sits there drinking
-"You've found enlightenment. But you're wrong."
-Everyone else is freaking out how amazing Thorfinn is to be holding up in this fight, while Thorkell just casually critiques his technique like it's normal.  
-Thorkell's skill's missing something too, that maybe he can learn from Thors' child !?
-What it means to be a true warrior vs what love means, both meeting at the point of Thors' death
-I love how incredibly nihilistic the priest's Christianity is
-after the duels with Askeladd, bringing up Thors in a duel seems like a dirty trick even though I think Thorkell was genuinely trying to learn something he's missing
-anything other than death isn't love, it's just discrimination; death is love and the snow is love because it touches everyone equally
-"God's creation is so beautiful. But then why is there no love in the hearts of men?" - and his hand reaches for an apple. SYMBOLISM
-holy fuck how far that kick sent him flying
-Askeladd's counting on Thorfinn as his hope... of survival? of letting Canute survive into becoming Arthur's return?
-is giant raging berserker charging towards you really the time to wonder about the madness of the world?! The priest wasn't trying to religion Canute into dying here and now, I don't think!
-Canute's rage against god is enough to stare down a berserker Nod Now the time time I stopped traffic with a glare doesn't seem so impressive Sad
-And then ending it with a hug and swearing to love the world into paradise because god won't save them, and taking charge of everything, suddenly he's a ruler
-Bjorn instantly in desperate pain now that the mushroom's worn out
-"I shall give meaning to your battles. To your life and to your death." Shiny/thrilled

-that last fight, Thors not even using his sword against Thorkell
-And Thorkell never told anyone he was alive Happy tears
-Trying to understand where his soul went
-Thorfinn completely falling for Thorkell's mocking until Askeladd pulls him back
-Askeladd coaching him on how to win Shiny/thrilled
-...why do the vikings know what shogi is??
-blinding him with the sword and then Thorfinn goes for the face and HE"S FUCKINg DOWN!! Shiny/thrilled
-Thorfinn suddenly going berserk
-I admire the courage of Thorkell's warrior to stand up to Thorkell while his head is seconds away from being crushed like a melon in his giant hands
-Fucking Canute comes to save the day with his brand-new leadership skills. I do feel like the transformation was a little too sudden, it kind of makes it hard to be wowed by it when it just feels like the writers decided "now he's unbelievably awesome," even though I thought the point of change itself worked pretty well. It just needed to be not quite so absolute and untouchable.
-The brother survived but has amnesia
-Thorkell's not having fun anymore Sad But at least he kept his word
-Canute facing down Thorkell, that was pretty badass
-Canute has the same look in his eyes Thors had when he left
-He's gonna follow Canute because he regrets not following Thors, not realizing that the "true warrior" secret he wants to learn was just loving peace over himself.
-Poor concussed Thorfinn trying to figure out what the fuck's going on rofl
-And Askeladd laughing his fucking head off, and then going to offer his life for killing Ragnar
-"hey don't copy me," "I was his vassal first!" Laughing

Spoiler:

- I mean, if you wanted the duel to keep going, maybe don't punt a field goal with him
- GROSS HIS ARM
- Oh shit, Thorkell is family
- Thorkell crying because he thought Thors died
- Thors stopped his axe swing with his bare hands
- "Where's your sword?" "I don't need it." God damn, Thors was a monster
- Thorkell and Thorfinn trolling each other Laughing
- Askeladd banking on someone else keeping their word after a duel
- Man, these cheaters
- What the fuck, glass jaw?

Spoiler:

-Askeladd's expression when Floki asks why he's here Laughing
-Canute's royal party just striding through like he already owns everything
-Thorkell getting to party on Canute's dime to build allies
-planning to assassinate the king...and Thorfinn's about to get more tasks. Hmm.
-Thorfinn still insisting he's not following Canute, and Askeladd humbly apologizing for his rudeness
-Canute's hating-god-face is so cartoonishly ugly Laughing
-planning to make earth so good when God summons him to his side, he can tell him to fuck off, they don't need him
-"I'm willing to turn into a demon to do it," getting ready to pile some bodies up for the path to the castle  silent
-The king already has an ambush set up in his hall for Canute
-"He who draws his sword first loses" and they walk right in
-Canute and Sweyn talking upfront about the fact that Canute's gonna kill him and take his crown just like Sweyn did to his father Shiny/thrilled
-The crown gives godlike power but it follows the will of the crown not the king, it totally wasn't Sweyn who decided to kill his son  innocent
-That little smile Canute gives at Sweyn's offer/threat
-Askeladd respectfully arguing for Canute's life, I love the way he's constantly revealing how at home he is in all kind of new situations, he's pretty much just awesome at everything, but it works
-Askeladd so mad that Sweyn figures his backstory from his nick/name that the stones are steaming where his hand touches them
-And Thorfinn's like what the FUCK b/c he's never seen him lose his cool like that, almost looked scared. But maybe also like it started some wheels turning to see that he can be made to react?
-Holy fuck, the priest with his haircut rofl And he's 23 ?!?
-I like that they're actually making the king a formidable opponent, from the way they always showed him as this tired old man alone in the shadows, I was expecting htem to just make him pathetic
-Ragnar's brother's got the same pointy head!
-Canute already had plans going for his survival, it would have been nice if we'd seen that before as a preview that he wasn't just running scared all the time, instead of only learning after his total miraculous transformation
-Gunnar uses a weird pronunciation of "Your Majesty," wonder if it's meant to make him sound rural or like he's spent his time in foreign places or what?
-Askeladd giving his man who betrayed him a gold bracelet, but he has to never pick up a sword again. And the other brother's not going to survive long Sad

- Thorfinn walking right by Floki, the guy who ordered his father's death, without realizing it
- Thorkell gets to drink on royal dime Laughing
- Canute will never forgive God for setting this up and watching it
- The King's already ahead of them and set up an ambush, god damn
- "Do you mean the crown ordered you to kill me?" God damn, Canute
- Sweyn trying to buy off Canute with British land
- Askeladd wormtonguing.
- The fucking RAGE in Askeladd's eyes as Sweyn talks about his father

Spoiler:

- Is Leif-kun finally gonna catch a glimpse of Thorfinn?
- Nope, Askeladd! Grin
- "That you're going to die here right now" WHAT THE FUCK
- OH
- SHIT
- They don't know what crossbows are
- Leif found his Thorfinn
- And apparently Thorfinn's becoming a legend
- He recognized Leif!
- They used a woman as a body double
- He doesn't want to hear about his sister and mother, only the fantasy of Vinland
- Tomorrow?
- In a weird way, Askeladd and Bjorn care about each other, Askeladd kind of flinched when Bjorn said the room was too small for "risking his life" when he knows Bjorn's probably gonna die from his wounds
- Askeladd completely outwitting the potential orders to weaken Canute
- There's no way Askeladd can win this duel, so he's either cheating somehow or he's finally going to tell him that Floki hired him to kill Thors
- That blade sticking out of his cast rofl
- Bjorn goes first?!
- Askeladd meant to get him in the vitals to make it quick ;_;
- His only friend, fuck
- MOTHER
- FUCKING
- CLIFF
- HANGER
