I'm happy for Athelstan now that he's back with his friends, but I was really enjoying the episodes where he was translating the old Roman manuscripts for King Ecbert. I still have a bad feeling that someday Floki is going to wind up in that room and set them all on fire, though.

That visual recap is hilarious!

I have to say, they hid that plot quite well. I did believe Floki had gone to the King's side. When what's-her-name Ragnar's new wife said "the gods are coming" that at least gave me hope that Ragnar and his team knew a fight was coming, so it would at least be a fair battle. But wow, I did not see the full double-cross coming.

I was so mad at the end of the last season wrt terrible character development and trite conflicts but season 2 was really excellent and I am glad I watched!

And yes, I was really annoyed that certainly ONE of the supposed betrayers would be really betraying after all, as in both cases it seemed really OOC, so I am super glad it turned out that they were both double agenting.

So what happens with Horik's nasty-pretty-boy son? taken captive? Isn't he a bit dangerous to leave alive?

I assume he's gonna die or is maybe already dead?

Does Floki really hate Athelstan that much, or is it all part of his act to portray a motive for betraying Ragnar? I mean, he did seem to start being resentful well before teaming up with Horik, but on the other hand, he went as far as staying away from his wife and new baby to further the plan. I like how elaborate this plot twist was.

and yes, Sex Fiend Saxon Princess is the best!

Princess Kwenthrith would be an awesome halloween costume, because if some hunky dude shows up in a viking costume, you have a perfect excuse to rummage around in his pants.

Vikings was helping me get over my Spartacus withdrawal symptoms. Now that it's gone for a while, does anyone have any suggestions of where I should go for my gratuitous violence + plot intrigue fix?

Um, Game of Thrones perhaps?

GoT is more drama and scheming than gleeful hacking of one's enemies to bits on a weekly basis. I can't actually think of a single GoT episode so far that was as stabbily gory as the average Spartacus or Vikings ep. Even the Tyrion facestabbing battle scene was pretty tame in comparison.
