The Argument of Ragnar's Sons
16 October 2017 | by Claudio CarvalhoSee all my reviews

There is a battle between Vikings and Saxons and Ivar's strategy works, forcing Aethelwulf and the survivors to retreat to Wessex. King Ecbert decides to stay behind and abdicate the throne and proclaiming his son Aethelwulf King of Wessex and Mercia. Bishop Edmund stays with Ecbert that says goodbye to his family. When the Vikings arrive, they find the place empty and King Ecbert lures them, offering lands to the Northmen at East Anglia. In return, he asks to choose the way he would die. Floki grieves the loss of Helga while Ragnar's sons have an argument with tragic consequences.

"The Reckoning" is an episode where Ivar shows that he is a great strategist plotting a great plan to defeat the Saxons in the battlefield. But he is also an unbalanced wicked and cruel man. Ecbert is no longer the King but he lures the Vikings signing a document granting lands to them as if he were the King. Floki has lost the last person that he loved after the loss of his daughter and Ragnar. My vote is eight.
