Vikings Recap S2E10 (Finale) The Lord’s Prayer

Helga arrives at Kattegat with Floki’s daughter in her arms. She finds Floki asleep on the ground, and he is stunned to see his new daughter. Helga puts the baby in his arms, and he worries over dropping her. He sees that she is a beautiful child, and makes Helga take back the child. He wishes to name the baby Angrboða after Loki’s first wife. She was a evil being, bore monsters, but Loki thinks it’s a good name. Helga wishes Floki to come home with her, but he will not. He sends her away, for her own good.

King Horik welcomes his children and wife to Kattegat, bringing them all to meet Ragnar and his family. There is a large welcome in the keep for the Royal family, where King Horik introduces his family. He sees Ragnar as an equal. Between them and Lagertha, they now have land in Wessex, and plan to go off to more lands together. He wishes to align them even more, for Ragnar has many sons, and he many daughters. King Horik’s wife chats up Lagertha. Ragnar watches from his corner, and Floki eyeballs King Horik. Floki reminds King Horik of his proposition, and King Horik admits he’s unsure he can trust him, which is exactly what Ragnar said to him.

Bjorn asks Porunn what she plans to do with her freedom. As a slave she loved Bjorn because he treated her as a free woman, but now she has choices she says. He tells her that is her first mistake, and walks away.

The celebration continues to the night. Floki chats with Torstein, who is indulging in all the women around. Siggy tries to seduce the King, wanting to know his plans. His wife and children are there, and that’s all she needs to know. Floki runs into Athelstan. He tells him that no one wants him there, that he betrayed the Gods, Athelstan cannot get away from Floki fast enough. King Horik asks for proof he can trust Floki. He asks him to kill someone who matters to show his loyalty. Floki looks for a target, King Horik has Ragnar in his sights, as he slumps on his throne. Floki’s attention is on Princess Aslaug though.

The games continue outside as each tries to flick coins into a bucket. King Horik watches Torstein, Floki, Bjorn, Ragnar and even Athelstan. King Horik asks Floki if he has chosen his victim, he has.

Floki makes the trek up the hill and picks some mushrooms.

Ragnar lays out his plans, but king Horik wonders what the nonfarmers should do. Those who do not wish to farm can work with King Ecbert and Princess Kwenthrith. King Horik does not trust King Ecbert, but Athelstan believes that he will honor his offer. Lagertha thinks Athelstan is still an innocent, though she does not agree with King Horik either. Those who wish to farm should, those who wish to work with King Ecbert and Princess Kwenthrith should. Everyone gets what they want, except King Horik, who wants revenge on King Ecbert.

Floki goes to see Rollo. Siggy is unsure if he will walk again. Floki tells her to go get some rest and she will watch over him. She’s been on nurse duty day and night, Siggy reluctantly agrees. Floki sits by his side, reminding Rollo of a time he put him in a bed like this. Floki has brought him a gift, the food of the Gods he says, mushrooms. Rollo eats them and Floki waits.

The hall is full at dinnertime. Children run all over the place. Floki grabs one of the children and gives him a message for Torstein, warning the child that if he does not keep his secret terrible things will happen to him. Torstein is found dead, poisoned, and Bjorn vows revenge, even Floki makes a scene of it. It’s enough to convince King Horik. King Horik reveals to Floki that he will kill Ragnar, Princess Aslaug, Lagertha and all of their children. He knows Ragnar is tough to kill, but he also knows that Floki will find a way to do it, and they will attack tomorrow.

Princess Aslaug and Lagertha watch the lightening striking. They know the Gods are speaking, that something is coming.

Bjorn tries to make it up to Porunn. He is crazy about her, worships her, and wants only her. Porunn doesn’t want to be worshipped, she wants to fight.

Rollo gets out of bed. He tries to walk as Siggy watches. He falls, and she urges him not to give up, but he doesn’t understand why she even cares. She isn’t sure, but she thinks that he can still be usefull. She leaves his axe out of reach and goes into town. She sees King Horik. He wants to chat, but she’s a little miffed with him. He asks for Ragnar’s weakness. It’s quite obvious. He tells her that if that is his weakness then she must go to the great hall at sunset and kill Ragnar’s children. If she does that, he will marry her, make her his second wife and a Queen. King Horik hands her a dagger to go the job.

Porunn and Bjorn square off. She starts the sparring, but Bjorn fights back, and not gently. Before long they’re both mildly bloody. Bjorn doesn’t want to fight her though, and Porunn runs off. He apologizes to her running after her. Floki hides unseen but Porunn is no longer running, she’s sitting waiting for him on a log. No longer throwing punches, she strokes his hand. He wants to kiss her, but he holds back. She takes the lead and initiates the kiss, before pulling him down to the ground and undressing him. All the while Floki watches, his sword drawn.

King Horik gives to his son the sword of Kings. Today he tells him that they must overcome the magic of Ragnar. He wishes to snuff out the entire family, knowing that even one of Ragnar’s line survives they will come back to kill them all.

Ragnar asks Athelstan to teach him one of his prayers so he can learn. Athelstan drops to his knees, and utters a prayer with Ragnar repeating the Lord’s Prayer. King Horik’s son watches boats full of men arrive on the shores. Princess Aslaug watches as Siggy gathers up her children. Athelstan helps Ragnar finish the prayer. King Horik’s wife is laced into her armor, as King Horik’s men sneak into the city, slaughtering any who are outside. The men reach the city center, and they take the citizens by surprise. Rollo feigns struggling in his bed, but he’s prepared as men arrive in his home. Athelstan is ready as well, and Lagertha walks the streets. She’s pissed. She takes on King Horik’s wife. The ladies meet sword to sword, but it’s clear who the alpha bitch is in the room. King Horik’s wife didn’t stand a chance. Bjorn asks Floki where he’s been, he’s been looking after Bjorn, as Ragnar asked him to do. King Horik’s daughter’s huddle in fear. Lagertha is sent out, but the girls aren’t likely to survive. Kattegat is engulfed in war. King Horik goes to find Ragnar in the keep. Torstein is there, as is Lagertha. King Horik’s men are slaughtered. King Horik tells Floki that he betrayed the Gods, but he only betrayed him, Floki admits. Princess Aslaugh, Bjorn and the rest watch on. King Horik asks that Ragnar spares his son, and he nods. King Horik approaches, and the warriors takes a single swing at him inflicting damage as he comes. Siggy comes out of the shadows as King Horik falls to his knees, giving Ragnar the dagger he gave her to kill his children with. The room clears out, and Ragnar stabs him with his own dagger before finishing him off with his hands.

Bjorn retruns to King Horik’s quarters, most of King Horik’s children are dead. He tells the remaining two girls to go, and they run like rabbits. Bjorn finds King Horik’s sword. Ragnar is covered in his enemy’s blood. He rose from farmer to earl, and now to King. King Ragnar sits high atop a cliff overlooking his kingdom. It’s good to be King.
