I thought that they didn't kill Horik's daughters. I rewound the scene a few times, all the boys were dead, but the girls in the room were alive. Then Bjorn comes in & tells the girls in the room to split & they run out. I was glad that Lagertha didn't have to deal with that. Sadly, they do have to kill the older boy, or they'll all have a target on their backs forever.SO GLAD Floki was working on his Viking Oscar for Best Performance& not turning on Ragnar. I didn't get why he wanted to name his daughter something Helga thought was evil.Thanks for a great season of reviews Henry. Love how you ask questions & reply to comments. If the Walking Dead reviewer retires, grab that gig, my other favorite show.
Even "bad" Floki is my favorite character, so I would hate it if they kill him off. I too think he's a double agent. He turned on Ragnar so fast and so completely and with what seems little reason. Henry, you do a great job with your reviews and I really like how you ask questions and then reply to the comments you get.
I agree, he's such an interesting character. The guy who plays him does an amazing job.I'm sad that this season he's gone from being Ragnar's "Daryl Dixon in eyeliner" (loyal funny sidekick we all love & better not see killed) to being a whiny, jealous unique dude.His gesture toward Aelle I caught & it made me laugh.
I was surprised when the Earl was Lagertha. I loved how smug she looked though, since she is now Ragnar's equal in rank. She's a great character. Athelstan's chanting did not surprise me. A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do, if he wants to stay alive in that world. So he "loves the one he's with" like the old song says.The Floki/Ragnar feud bothers me. And why didn't Ragnar confront Floki, his lifelong pal, on WHY he wasn't invited to his wedding? Instead he stays home and gets drunk with his new pal Blondie-grr. I think Floki indicated to Helga that he was mad cause Ragnar was a bit "too big for his britches" now that he was an Earl. The boys need to talk.Ragnar telling Bjorn to "think with his other head" was really hypocritcal, considering how Ragnar broke up his own marriage to Lagertha. I just wish Bjorn had called him on it.Ragnar's not been very likeable lately.
I gotta say I was TOTALLY surprised when Rag's double crossed Borg.Princess BabyMama continues to be annoying, but I think she is written that way. Clearly Rag's likes her, every time he looks at her she gets pregnant. And she's given him a good start on his many sons.As for Lagertha's husband, I agree with Henry,it should have been Lag's who killed him. But I also think that the show wanted to emphasize that the "people" didn't like her husband any more than she did. She thought the sword guy was gonna kill her, which was pretty suspenseful, till he showed her his loyalty by killing her abusive husband. As for "I'm not a Whore" Siggy, what other way does she have to regain any power but to use her body to get a powerful guy. She's not a shield maiden like Lags is.I too wish Athelstan would come back to Ragnar's camp. Course he's safer in England cause (my favorite character) Floki is pretty jealous of his friendship with Ragnar. And Floki can be pretty brutal, that whole "being a Viking" thing... Bjorn's got a girlfriend, be interesting to see how his relationship with a slave girl goes.
Floki is SO jealous of Athelstan's friendship with his BFF Ragnar. In fact, in a few of the battle scenes I wondered if Athelstan were in danger if Floki would even interfear or just let Al get killed.For all his faults Floki is still my favorite character. He's so fascinating, the way he moves, the way he talks. When he's in the scene, I can't watch anyone else. Daryl Dixon in eyeliner...that's who Floki is to me.
I thought it was great! Happy that they didn't kill someone off just for the sake of killing someone off. Cause I kept waiting for that to happen. But I kinda think Beth IS on the grill...The Rick/Sons of Anarchy showdown was really good. BadAss Rick is back - yay! And BadAss Rick loves Daryl too ;o)Now with most everyone back together (plus Abraham's group) I can't wait to see how they bust outta that boxcar & kick some Terminus butt.I figure Carol/Tyreese must be somehow involved, but carrying Baby Judith while freeing the others is going to limit them. And that closeup of the "Powdered Milk" trash on the ground makes me nervous.
I think you are right Terrie, Joe is gonna realize that Rick is the "fecal matter" who killed his pal in the bathroom & Daryl will have to kill his new BFF Joe to save his old BFF Rick, least that is how I see it too.Wonder where/if Beth turns up? And nice of her sister Maggie to care (not!).
Beth?Ewww - only kidding!
I thought it was a good episode, was glad it went from group to group so we could catch up w/almost everyone.Chemistry is building again between Rick and Michonne, like early in the season. I'm good with that, Rick needs a little happy time. As for Daryl, I think he's gonna have to kill most/all of the Sons of Anarchy at some point to save his BFF Rick. They pointed out that one guy knows what Rick looks like & they are mad he killed the Bathroom Guy so they'll meet up at some point.The New Guys are growing on me too. Yay Glenn found Maggie but Maggie burning that picture made me nervous for her, bad omen I think. Be interesting to see the Carol/Tyreese relationship (or lack of) when they get to Terminus.And Terminus has sketchy written all over it. Woodbury Part Deux for sure, with Creepy Mary welcoming them. Hope I'm wrong but WD doesn't usually go w/a "happy ending season finale". Sad next week is the end till October too.
