There is a weird theory going around on Facebook that floki morphed into that dog to get past Rollo on his way to Athelstan... I didn't really believe it but after rewatching the episode today it certainly looks like it.
The very beginning of the episode with Athelstan and Ragnar doing the whole sand bit was great. it quickly reminded me just how great their friendship is/was. I'm incredibly bummed out that he will no longer be around anymore, in all honesty he was probably the most interesting character out of everybody else on the show... you definitely felt for his character more while characters like Ragnar stare off into the distance in every episode. I loved Floki for so long. Now I'm disturbed by him and his motives. It really is a good part by the writers, though, to make everyone so complicated.Athelstan and Ragnar were brothers !! We can't blame Floki though,He is a product of his culture and his own religion. He is the conscience of the Vikings and killing an enemy is the best way to help his Viking brothers. That said, I am ready to see him bite the bullet now. he definitely has gone to a place that is unredeemable. The follow up to tonight's episode "Athelstans Journal" was also pretty damn cool.It totally made me remember how awesome of a character Lagertha was in the first two seasons. they really need to hurry up and get her out in some kind of battle for I fear she is softening up way too much this season.
it still boggles my mind that the boys haven't thought of conjuring up the character death to see if maybe he knows anything about the Mark of Cain... it's been a good while since death has been on the show and I truly miss him as in my opinion he is one of the coolest characters the show has ever introduced. and I agree, there are good case of weeks and then there are total duds like this one was. it also doesn't help that the cringe inducing Rowena was involved,i just do not care about anything involving her. at first I thought it would be interesting to see Crowley and his mom but now I feel like changing the channel when she is on screen!!... the character gives me huge douche chills
While you would like to see something new happen with cam,i would like to see nothing new happen with Alex.I have been watching since the first season and while the other characters have grown and developed more layers to them she is the only one who has practically been the same since the show first aired.they really need to bring out something more to her character than just the studious smart girl
well at least Thea didn't show up to the wedding in a belly shirt :)
Like I said last week I was cheated out of an incredible episode, and to me this followup episode just didn't deliver the goods. last week's "hey that was a killer kick ass episode / oh no it's all been erased" was going to be a tough act to follow. the only thing I liked about this episode was Linda parks beautiful face on my TV screen :) I have a feeling that will be the last time we see her unfortunately. Btw was iris seriously wearing gogo boots at work ? lol her skirt / dress was also way too short to be in a workplace. what a hoochie \m/
I really dig the floki character, but his whole mocking of Christianity and his feud with Athelstan is starting to bore me now. he's been saying the same stuff for a season and a half now, and he's coming off as a one trick pony.And how on earth does he of all people know that Harbard is another name for Odin ? did Vikings carry around or keep some kind of ancient text that held all the names of the gods and their sub names ? I get it, he is the most connected to the gods but him knowing just kind of took me out of the moment.
I swear whenever Jo is on screen her face takes up a good portion of my whole tv screen. why does the show always do these big close ups of her really round face nearly every time she is in an episode ? and I swear to Odin, I nearly punched a hole through my TV when I saw that damn cure !! call me crazy but the first person I thought of when I saw the Cure revealed was Enzo. it's probably a super long shot but I could see him maybe stealing it for himself so he can take it so he and Sarah Salvatore can fall in love, or something equally sappy in that manner. with all these witch shenanigans going on between the originals and Vampire Diaries im on witch overload at the moment and don't even care about the premiere of Salem season 2. I'm fed to the teeth with immortals,Covens, Gemini Covens, travelers and ascendants lol.
very weird indeed lol
