    Vikings XII: It's not History, It's Hirstory [SPOILERS]

    Why did they have to bring Ray Stevenson into this new god awful Iceland storyline?

    Vikings XII: It's not History, It's Hirstory [SPOILERS]

    That was one boring hour of television. I don't get why anyone would want Bjorn as their king. He constantly makes stupid decisions, he's a awful tactician and he seems to lose most battles he's in. On top of that he's a terrible husband and father. Completely uninspiring stuff. It does not help that Alexander Ludwig once again dives headfirst into his bad Ragnar Lothbrok-impression. Why would you sail to Iceland in the middle of fucking winter? And how does they manage to get there completely unscathed? I can't wait for whatever boring crap is going to happen there. If your a Russian and you're going to invade Scandinavia, why would you even go after Norway when Sweden is right fucking there and is way more accessible from the east than any part of Norway? But instead a Russian raiding goes to Vestfold, a place where you'd first have to pass both Sweden and Denmark, and makes their first attack. Also where the fuck in Norway is Kattegat supposed to be. Because if it is in the western part the attack is even stupider than I thought. It's good for Oleg and Ivar that Bjorn is a fucking idiot.

    Well Ubbe and Hvitserk fell through the ice and then she saved them before dying, so that could be what you remembered. And Kevin Durand's wanderer was involved somehow. Bjorn's first daughter (also named Siggy IIRC) also drowned, but that was in a stream I think.

    Torvi helped Lagertha invade Kattegat back in season 4, so since then I guess. And Lagertha was the grandmother of Torvi's kids with Bjorn, so them being really tight makes sense Lagertha retired from sheildmaidening for about 15 minutes and moved out to some farm, then she had to help some nearby villagers was being attacked by bandits. So that's where she was before going to Kattegat. Siggy drowned while saving Ubbe and Hvitserk back in season 3.

    It's basically the same quality as the last couple of seasons. It's not really the final season, it's the first half of the final season. The b-side comes out in a year.
  10. Naturally I offer my humblest apologies for this slight.

    That was basically the Gabriel Bryne's funeral from season one, but stretched into an entire episode, way way more overdone and infinitely less interesting. Torvi wants to sacrifice herself as part of the funeral and follow Lagertha into the afterlife, but is prevented from it. Too bad. I also wonder if the show is going to start treating Lagertha the same way it did St Athelstan?

    I don't think sword-in-hand was ever a requirement for Valhalla in Vikings, combat-related death is enough. In fact, I can't think of that many other viking related stories other than The Saxon Tales/The Last Kingdom where sword-in-hand is required for Valhalla.
