The vikings arrive in France and begin constructing their base camp in full view of the citizens of Paris. Ragnar puts Floki in charge of the battle preparations, including finding a way to gain access to the city over the wall they've built. Inside the city, the population is in a panic. Emperor Charles announces that he will remain in the city and puts Count Odo in charge of the city's defenses. In Wessex meanwhile, King Ecbert tells Aethelwulf that he may have to overthrow King Aelle if he is to become king of all of England. Ecbert also casts his lustful eye on his daughter-in-law Judith. Aethewulf is sent to Mercia to ensure Queen Kwenthrith understands she is subjugated to Ecbert. She has something of a surprise for them. In Kattegat, Porunn asks Aslaug to care for her newborn daughter. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


Lothaire Bluteau plays the "emperor"("king" in reality) Charles "the Bald", one of Charlemagne's grandsons. Lothaire is not a common name, not even in the french-speaking world. Strangely enough, Charles the Bald had two brothers: Louis the German who held the title of Emperor and Lothaire II who lost his possessions to his allied brothers. See more »


One of the birds shown while Aethelwulf is waiting in Princess Kwenthrith's tent is an Eclectus Parrot (native to the Solomon Islands, Sumba, New Guinea, northeastern Australia and the Maluku Islands), which was unknown to European civilizations during the Viking era. See more »

Paris and Mercia
5 October 2017 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The Northemen arrive at the walls of Paris and the King discusses with his nobles how the will protect the town against the invaders. Ecbert asks Aethelwulf what would be the reaction of Judith if he kills King Aelle. Aethelwulf learns that Queen Kwenthrith has killed the noblemen from Wessex. Ragnar gives the command of his forces to Floki and the leaders discuss how they will attack Paris. Floki is assigned to build something to help them to climb the walls. Ecbert assigns his son to intimidate Kwenthrith to be submissive to Wessex.

"Paris" is an episode that shows the preparation of Ragnar and the Northmen to attack Paris. Floki believes the sacrifice of Athelstan has please the gods and Ragnar has motivated him. Ecbert and Aethelwulf have also important participation in this show, using their "persuation" to take Mercia from Kwenthrith. My vote is eight.
