Trivia

The poem read on the beach before the battle begins is stanza 23 of Krákumál. As translated in English by Thomas Percy it goes: Young men should march up to the conflict of arms: man should meet man and never give way. In this hath always consisted the nobility of the warrior. He, who aspires to the love of his mistress, ought to be dauntless in the clash of arms. See more »

People are very hard to be pleased these days

How can you hate an episode like this. It was exactly what the first 9 episodes promised us. And you guys are too stupid to think that bjorn and ivar were really talking in the beach. And ivar did NOT kill bjorn. It was a sign that ivar won the battle and bjorn lost
