The implication is that Aethelwulf was allergic to bee stings, but it takes several hours, he's on his death bed many hours after the sting. If he was allergic, it would take minutes to be overcome by anaphylaxes. Not hours. See more »

The wife of Etheloff, how a character can make you quit a show
9 January 2019 | by meeedooozSee all my reviews

Never have i seen and episode so badly written with an idiotic plot like this one. But man the abomination that is Etheloff's wife truely is the last straw. This character made me quit the show. There is no more reason to anything that happens. Just soap opera.
