The vikings launch their attack on Paris. Lagertha and Kalf lead the attack on the bridge and the main gate. After their attempt to knock down the gates with a battering ram is unsuccessful, they manage to pull them down - but are not prepared for what they find on the other side. Floki leads the attack on the wall but the city's defenses are formidable. As it becomes clear the battle is lost, Floki cannot understand why the gods have deserted him. In Kattegat, Porunn leaves her child with Auslag and goes off into the wilderness. Written by garykmcd

Princess Gisla raises the Oriflamme to inspire the defenders of Paris. However, the Oriflamme was only first used in 1124 by Louis VI, over a hundred years after the events depicted in the series. See more »


Ragnar Lothbrok: [Praying to Athelstan] You think I went too far with Floki. Can you actually believe that he thought that I would let him lead without having an agenda? If I was him, I would worry less about the gods and more about the fury of a patient man.

There are three letters in the word "WOW"

And if the IMDb allowed one word reviews (they do not) that would be the whole review.

This reviewer grew up on the "sword and sandals" epics.

And this reviewer was lucky enough to catch the latest iteration of that genre in TV productions like Spartacus (a series so solid that even though the quality lessened as the series wore on, no one really noticed or cared) And now we have Vikings, from the History channel no less.

This could be one of the most perfect hours of TV ever created. It is hypnotic. Part of you wonders whether you are watching something even close to historical fact, and part of you is having so much fun you don't care.

That is TV at its best.
