Yes, he must have found a good sponsor...

I presume that Bjorn inherited the "throne" but why was Ragnar's wife still appearing to have some stature ?

She was in charge while Ragnar was on business trips, though the stay-behinds were mostly women and children. She was some kind of queen in her own right when Ragnar first found her. Bjorn seems to have become a confident leader, but not so interested in the manipulative politics and intrigue aspects - more like Rollo than Ragnar. Lagertha would be more of a natural at ruling but she's apparently still occupied elsewhere...

Very see-saw season. Some good moments (Bjorn all alone), and some really bad moments.


Totally hate this whole opium addiction thing with Ragnar, really badly done and out of place and takes away from the character and his bad a**ness.


Cool battle scene on the water though. Really up and down for me as I binged watch most of this season to date.
Some of the episodes were outstanding, some not so much.

I think it sort of ballsy that they are making Ragnar a flawed character. These were not especially nice people. Bound to be a bit of bad karma.

Did a fun discovery today when I looked at my wifes family history. Managed to go all the way to Sigurd Snake in the Eye. Of course history is a bit cloudy in thar era. But I may get her interested in the show now.
