Vikings “On the Eve” Review and Recap
This week’s episode of Vikings: ‘On the Eve’ started off with some much-needed action. A group of men entered Kattegat and began to kill the villagers there but they were cut short. Warriors from Kattegat came out killing the threat. The situation was handled quickly and effectively. Lagertha concluded that the men were looking for weaknesses.
In Wessex the Bishop arrived injured from the battle with King Aelle and Prince Aethelwulf tried to get information but the Bishop was badly injured unable to properly talk. Alfred told Aethelwulf that he was proud to have a father like him. That scene made my heart swell because Alfred knows that his biological father is Athelstan but he still respects and loves Aethelwulf. In the show there’s betrayal, sadness, and anger but Alfred is kind at least from what we’ve been shown. His character is interesting and I’d like to see more of him in the future.
“The Great Heathen Army” landed in Mercia where Bjorn and Ivar disagreed on who should lead the army. But in the end Bjorn said he would lead because he is the oldest and that was final.
The siege on Kattegat was finally here unless it’s only the beginning. The siege didn’t last long but I was on edge because anything could have happened. There was a moment where I thought Lagertha would be defeated because a lot of the warriors left to be part of “The Great Heathen Army.” Once Egile is captured he is placed over fire, burning his skin off. Lagertha learns from him that he was hired by King Harald and Halfdan. We find out that Torvi has been injured during battle but the full extent of how badly she’s injured is unknown. I actually thought she was dead until she blinked but that’s all we have.
In the middle of war King Harald is still upset that Ellisif married an earl instead of waiting for him. Out of frustration and anger King Harald kills earl Vik in front of Ellisif and the rest of the vikings. Later Ellisif tricked King Harald into bed where she was going to kill him but Halfdan killed her before she got the chance to do anything.
Aethelwulf and “The Great Heathen Army” faced off but there was no battle at least not yet. The vikings kept the english men running around, back and forth. Just when the english men thought they had the upper hand they were proved wrong.
Overall the episode was good I think it’s a lot better than last week’s episode. I can’t wait for King Harald to return to Kattegat because I want to see what Lagertha is going to do I’m sure she won’t let it slide but there may be a battle between the vikings. King Harald and Halfdan aren’t the kind to settle things by talking they love the thrill of killing and I’m sure they won’t go down without a fight. I can’t help but feel bad for him because the only woman he loved, married another man and she is now dead. I am very excited for the season finale because the vikings and english men are finally going to fight and it’s going to set up season 5.
