Wow. The scene where Ellisith (I think that's her name) almost got her revenge on King Harold Finehair was pretty wild. She planned perfectly, except for not having anyone to watch her back.
She got the guy's upper garments off making it easier to get a knife in, and then arranged for him to have his hands in a position where she could lock her thighs around them. Sweet Jesus, it was looking delicious for her.
I think though the producers want to draw out King Harold's takedown somewhat. Lagartha is going to want to take a shot.
The entire episode with her husband, Vichy I think his name, being killed required some serious suspension of disbelief. The guy just did not come across as an Earl. Way too soft and naïve. I'd have had my hand on my sword the minute Finehair showed up. His talk about "you never really wanted to marry me, did you" was way ominous. And if the guy was an Earl, you would think there would be some uproar about his summary execution by a rival.
Also, when she went to do the assassination, you would think two or three guys would've surreptitiously have had her back. Oh well, it's a dramatization.
Here's my best guess: they'll have Lagartha about to exact justice from the twit and right then a big, mean looking guy will show up saying that he is the brother of Ellisith and not happy about the deaths of her and her husband. He will say something like "my brother-in-law was a kind and generous man. I am not as kind of a man. I demand the justice of a duel." I don't think they'd use that phrase however.
