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.
