Celebrations are cut short in the aftermath of the battle at York; Ragnar Lothbrok's sons are pitted against each other as tensions reach an all-time high, and each is forced to choose a side.

* Floki have a "I Live!" moment, at least he's close to shore (bird noises, what no he wasn't? wth?)

* sexymcbattlepriest is creepy again, keeps extending his influence, and gaining influence

* "Meanwhile, in Kattegat." Lagertha drama (the candidate King of Norway apologising for trying to take Lagertha's Queenship of Kattegat because some other woman wanted him to do it, now wants to wed her, but Lagertha has definite other ideas)

* Ubbe tries growing a pair, Ivar gets some ink done and Mimi Rogers himself "backwards and in heels."

* Lagertha's in group gets conflicty and compromised

* Harold (candidate for the Norwegian throne) does a(another? huge) stupid; Torvi!

* Jonathan Rhys Meyers is terrible

* Jonathan Ryhs Meyers is terrible

* Judith and Athelstan become slightly more relevant

* Gustaf SkarsgÄrd is awesome (x at least 3)

* Bad less than great makeup <>direction

* Floki finds some land (and a cave, and knows the correct way to wrap a fur around oneself - at least for while), and learns how to survive on this particular island

* eh, Floki - not impressed - but Ivar reallh is.

I'm with Lagertha's shieldmaidens; I don't really know what was in it for her to not kill Harald, and I hope Astrid shivs him ASAP. (I did enjoy yelling Harald, they're lesbians at his proposal to Astrid, though.)

* Jonathan Rhys Meyers is terrible

* Jonathan Ryhs Meyers is terrible

I was wondering if I was the only one thinking this (twice at least)

All the stuff with Floki discovering Iceland was lovely. I enjoyed the imagining of what might it have been like to be the first person to see Iceland.
