IGN: Vikings: "Revenge" Review

Recommended Posts

Warning: Full spoilers for the episode below.

 

"Revenge" may have not gotten around to the actual revenge part of the story until the final ten minutes (Vikings episodes tend to work that way, structurally), but most every part of it was still filled with really intriguing and sinister things.

Firstly, the culture of the Norsemen fell into fierce focus again with Lagertha holding a blood sacrifice -- human blood, that is -- to bless the massive army before they invaded England. In fact, a few things in "Revenge" called back strongly to big events from early on in the series - like the sacrifice here (which featured an eager young man pulling himself along Lagertha's blade) and the really wicked Blood Eagle given to King Aella in the episode's closing moments. These were appropriately brutal, and nicely offset too by some of the love dosed out during the episode.
