OMFG next weeks episode is gonna be so fucking lit! Thorfinn was looking so cool with that entrance onto the battlefield!

I wonder when him and Askeladd are gonna admit to themselves that they actually care about each other? haha

Awesome episode as always. Lots of action here, all intense. At first I didn't like Askeladd because he killed Thors, but by now he's really grown on me as a great character. It was good to see the men who betrayed him getting what was coming to them.

Thorkell is so terrifying. But as always I'm looking forward to the moment Thorfinn jumps into action. He's always so badass. Looks like next episode is going to be a very intense fight.

Also, did Torgrim just DIE standing?

btw where is Ear of Askeladd? is he dead? offscreen lol

Not sure if Ear ever thought of betraying Askeladd like the others. He doesn't seem like a fighter at all, more of a "navigator". So I assume he probably got slaughtered when Thorkell and co surrounded them?

Thorkell is a beast, lol.
I hope he kills those two soon.
Unfortunately, they'll probably trick him and escape somehow...

Gotta loves how Askaland's men are getting butchered like animals for massacring those poor villagers a few episodes ago, shout out to that girl from few episodes ago she actually avenged her people.

Overall pretty intense and good episode. Askaland had some serious death flags this episode and would have been dead if it not for Thorkill.
I fully expect Askaland to die soon though.

At last, Thorfin vs Throkill rematch hype ~

The show was indeed needing a more fast paced episode, but holy shit! One of the best directed episodes of the year. It ceartanly made me hooked way more than a certain episode 19 from a certain anime

Askeladd is such a boss. Refusing to back down even when dozens of arrows are coming at him, surrounded by over 50 enemies, and even when more enemies showed up, he's still able to keep calm and collected and talk his way out of dying and act composed in front of Thorkell even when he's kneeling on the ground bleeding all over. what a man.

also props to Thorfinn for coming to his rescue. although he only did it cause he wants Askeladd to be his to kill, it still warms my heart to see he cares for Askeladd to some degree (like deep within him and he'll never admit it). like i thought, Askeladd is becoming like a father/mentor figure to thorfinn. He's not gonna let go so soon.

cannot wait for Thorfinn vs Thorkell round 2 next week (the op spoiled a bit but im not complaining)

also, the prince fell on his face lolol i totally thought thorfinn was gonna catch him welp i guess not, the ship has sunk XDD

This was a pretty decent episode. Some more gore than usual.

I'm interested to see who wins the fight in the next episode. Thorkell seems like the obvious choice, but I have a feeling either Thorfinn will win or it'll be a draw with someone else breaking up the fight.

I've seen a lot of people saying it was better in the manga, which is probably true. But I haven't read the manga, so I can't comment.

Aw, look at Thorkell doing his stretches.
But yikes, those poor guys getting wrecked after their betrayal. Pretty much deserved it though.

Likes: A good story, characters, writing, romance, a good plot twist or something that breaks expectations (In a good way), 'backstory', and small breasts justice.
Dislikes: Bad romance, too much fanservice, the harem genre, yuri, yaoi, and bad writing.

Oh the welp! The usual stuff of complaints...

But anyways, the internal revolt of Askeladd vs. his own men sent the whole group in disarray. His luck may have ran out, but in exchange, his skills cannot be faked. The usual gore is toned down, not so say that it was bad in anyway.

In the midst of the fiasco, Thorkell managed to close the gap, it was a string of luck on his side. I'd ridicule the rebel leader (and his followers) anyways is gonna end up dead, as per Thorkell's reasoning, because there's no one else that can do but him alone.

It's so funnily ridiculous that even looks can be intimidated that you can even die standing, at least for Thorkell. The battle has come back for another duel between Thorkell and Thorfinn, but this time, it's to save Askeladd. Can't wait for Round 2...

The thing about Askeladd and the whole thing about Avalon, is that his young days were full of fairy tales, although "awaiting" for the "true king" for him to serve, because he's still have someone to pledge allegiance to, but due to his old age and mentality, he has grown out of it and going on his own way.

Despite many complaints the episode is still rated pretty high. As disappointing as some visuals may have been, people are still loving the shit out of the story, and in the end it's all that matters.

Wish Thorkell mind breaking Torgrim was better, but it was still an amazing episode. Askeladd shows that despite his old age he can still stand his ground and Thorfinn shows how insane he is in his quest for revenge. Next episodes should be even better.

Pretty ok episode. Thorkell killing the rebels was pretty predictable. Not much hype for Thorfinn's fight with Thokell either.

The problem with this episode was with character designs and animation. Both were worse than previous episodes. Also the censorship. Both these factors pretty much destroyed any entertainment value for this episode for me.

3/5

I wanted to forget the events that happened prior to this cus they were so sad and horrible but it seems now askellad's group got what is coming to them. All the more satisfying.

Good episode.

I have to say, forget about the people being killed left and right, I feel more sorry for the horses, especially the one that got punched by Thorkell.

Thorfinn vs Thorkell is something I'm looking forward to.

What a great episode! It's great to see lots of action in this episode, I mean, what were Askeladd's men expecting from Thorkell? Mercy? Ah, they were just dumb. Looks like Thorfinn and Thorkell are gonna be facing off in the next episode, can't wait to see that! Damn, that Thorkell is really awesome, he just punched a horse straight into the air with pure brute strenght.

Thorfinn really comes off as overpowered at times, he must've ran over and killed a dozen guys while in his horse.

It's not that he's overpowered, he just uses the element of surprise. Also, ever tried to stop a rampaging horse? That animal can wreck a shit-ton of dudes without effort.

He also employs acrobatics and trickery, kinda like Askeladd does (like how Askeladd finger-stabbed one dude's eyes for example) in his fights. I'd say Thors and Thorkell are way more OP, especially the latter as in the manga he does some superhuman shit later on.

It wasn't as intense as it was in the manga but I thought it was still pretty good. I'm honestly surprised at the backlash though, even made the director apologize on twitter :(

Well, that’s still distantly plausible that he’d be swinging logs, but what happened to him in the manga recently is beyond ridiculous. Not gonna spoil anything, though!

Someone's gotta be crazy not to give this one 5 stars.. HOLY crap this is insane. That fire inside Thorfinn is showing, for real. That spirit never lets us down and it's burning stronger than ever now... His screams gave me the chills, 10/10 voice acting that one, oh my God. This is by far one of the best episodes, so much fighting.

I'm kind of scared to watch the next few episodes though, "what if" this and "what if" that. But I'm with Thorfinn all the way!!!! <3333

Torgrim deserved to die lol. His death (is he dead?) was so lame too
I love Thorkell's personality. How he said kill all except Askeladd.

What mushroom did Bjorn eat tho? Looked like that poisonous one to me

I don't get the complaints. Animation still was good. Nobody will be drawing and wasting time for high quality fights for many random characters. Watchers doesnt care about random vikings so why WIT Studio must care? Next episode should have only the best animation.

5/5

This was a very action packed episode. Thorkell is one strong guy. Pretty amazing to see his strength. He's still himself. I wonder if Thorfinn will ever find out that Thorkell and Thors used to be on the same team. Can't wait for the next episode.

My thoughts exactly! Funny how the redhead girl thought she was tempted about stealing the ring. If we go by the context of the story, seems like God has worked his way. If she didn't steal it, she wouldn't have gone out the house that night, away from the danger and stayed alive. Thus falling into the hands of Thorkell's men, giving away their location, Askeladd's bunch reached climax. Their interests and frustration clashed with Askeladd, he started killing them, Throkell joined the 'party' on top of that...

Well, ladies. Karma is a bitch after all.

I'm disappointed in Askellad's men not because they betrayed him but because of how they're scared as hell of dying. Like what about all the battles you've been through? All the innocent people you've killed? I thought they would've been heartless killers who are used to death by now. Probably because they're used to always being the one with the upper hand, cause Askellad is a genius tactician. So when they've been in a series of unfortunate circumstances, they folded like paper. Pathetic. Also, Thorfinn is totally gonna lose.

Thorkell is a crazy bastard, his VA is doing an outstanding job. Although Thorfinn is not that far behind when it comes to insanity.

this really has been the best episode of the series yet and that is saying alot since they all have been pretty amazing. The battles the way askeladd turned on the danes and how thorkell respected him enough to keep him alive and kill his men instead for being traders. I cant wait another week to see Thorfinn and Thorkell fight its going to be amazing. Also that scene were Askeladd splits that dude in half was bad A**

I dont think Thorfinn is insane hes more at a point where he just doesnt care and has been there for awhile all he wants is to duel and beat Askeladd and when that happens he will be at peace
