* Bjorn continuing to be the grownup of the house and yet a baby
* Ragnar and Lagertha fighting and fucking
* Rollo being unable to fight Ragnar (the little fucker)
* Ragnar bribing the lawgiver to spare his brother (the little fucker)
* "there was no sunlight. no sunlight at all." (the little fucker)
* Ragnar...snuggling baby goats? multiple times? this is symbolic of him being baby-crazy I guess?
* that dinner. so super awk that I was almost gleeful about it.

* Ragnar saying goodbye to Gyda
* Aslaug rolling into town
* Lagertha leaving
* Ragnar going after her and being heartbroken

I've been torn this whole time on the pregnant princess storyline because on the one hand I honestly want like...uber poly fic come to life with Ragnar and Lagertha and Athelstan and all Ragnar's baby mama in one big bed because let's face it Ragnar has enough for all of them if you know what I mean and I know you do but otoh jealous human nature and Lagertha's pride and I always knew she wasn't gonna be having it, and Ragnar/Lagertha = ultimate canon otp, so.

in light of all that, this ep was such a gigantic rollercoaster for me, like. jesus. I was srsly enjoying all Ragnar's affirmation of his bond to Lagertha but I was waiting for the other shoe to drop like, I know you want that baby, mister, so spit it out, and then Ragnar literally facepalming at that super awkward conversation about whether Aslaug could cook and then he took the opportunity to EXPLICITLY PROPOSE POLYGAMY, and I was like, jumping up and down and cackling but also wanting to beat him about the head because rly? RLY? and then. well you know. the ending.

i knew you'd be gleeful at the polygamy request haha. I'm glad Lagertha told Ragnar to fuck off though, because i wouldn't want her to agree to a a group marriage unless she actually liked the idea.

I would have liked more Athelstan. He's become a background character who doesn't seem to mean anything to anyone - he didn't even say goodbye to Lagertha and I'm wondering if the show even intends to bring him back into the narrative and if so what role he'll play.

So good having Ragnar back on my screen. Travis Fimmel's eyes are everything (and he made me cry when he said farewell to Gyda.

Ragnar/Lagertha = ultimate canon otp, so

are they though? Lagertha is the female lead so I know she's not gone from the show but I vaguely remember reading that the real Ragnar Lothbrok married twice more, including to Aslaug.

oh yeah I wouldn't have been happy with her agreeing and then hating it, that's why I was so torn over the whole thing

and oh yes, I somehow forgot to put that in there - absolutely not enough athelstan in this ep, but I don't think he's becoming a background character, I think it was just in this episode - that's my impression from a few trailers I've seen.

Travis Fimmel's eyes, fuck me.

yeah the real Ragnar had a bunch of kids by a bunch of different women, and I don't know that they're planning on deviating from that - seems like they're sticking to it - but I'm pretty confident Lagertha is sticking around. and hey, now we just have another doomed otp.

aaahhhahahahaha omg that SCENE where he's like, "there's enough to go around. We could all hang out." Pffft hahaha so hilariously awkward! And like, I feel like he's got two modes: kittenish seductive grinnning, and chagrinning in the doghouse. SO SMOOTH RAGNAR

Poor Lagertha. She's gotta go, for sure, but still. NOoooooo don't go :( ITA: Bjorn is like the only adult. I'm glad he decided to go with her. And it totally broke my heart, how first she kissed him on the head and hugged him tight, and then Ragnar did, like, the exact same thing. So sad.

I also noticed the baby goat thing. In regards to the snuggling and the like, hey look at me, I'm a fancy king welcome to my house don't mind us we let goats on the table thing. Musta really impressed Aslaug lol.

Gotta say, I was really surprised by the first five minutes. I definitely thought the fight with Rollo was going to last all season. I wonder, sometimes, if Ragnar really is wise, or if he is just operating on gut instinct. I hope the peace lasts between them.

GOD the part where he says goodbye to his daughter seriously made me tear up a little bit ngl.

Where is ATHELSTAN? Are he and Ragnar gonna hang out and be bachelors now???

this is so accurate I'm crying

hey look at me, I'm a fancy king welcome to my house don't mind us we let goats on the table thing.
well hey, he woulda had me at hello with that

I imagine Rollo's gonna be a good boy for a while then he'll get bored and jealous and go back to his shenanigans

there was not NEARLY enough Athelstan in this ep, though I liked that little moment of him demonstrating viking values. but yeah I'm sure they'll be bacheloring it up and hopefully people will write porn about him turning to Athelstan instead of Aslaug. I don't really want to dislike her but I kind of do.
