(Hopefully) finishing season 3 on this still awfully cold day.
Episode 5. Soo proud of Edward. Aand Haesten is running again. Dick move, Alfred. using this as a teaching moment with the slight hope that Uthred might get killed in the meantime. So very very petty. I loved the conversation between Alfred and Uthred, both pointing out each other's greatest dreams and failures at the same time.
Episode 6. So much love for Brida. I guess the morale of this story is, don't stick a stick up anyone's arse, especially not a seer's. Uthred is right, Cnut is a weasel. Althelwold is however even more of a weasel. I do hope Brida gets to kill them both. She deserves it. That was rather harsh with Sihtric. Alfred really hates that he always needs Uthred, and now Edward will need him too.
Episode 8: Seriously, Aethelwold, he doesn't learn, does he? Does he want to loose another eye? Or something else? Ding dong the "seer" is dead! Finally! She was such a one-note character. Hi Hild! It's been a while! I missed her.
Final Episode: Excellent Ending! Although I think Brida should have finished the weasel. Feel so sad for Father Beocca, Thyra's death was horrifying.
Aethelwold has long outlived his amusement factor after he killed Ragnar.
The scene between Alfred and Uthred was beautiful. Some kind of closure. I liked that Alfred had enough honesty to admit that a lot of his actions were out of pettiness and fear. And proving by leaving Uthred out of the chronicles, kings and victors write history.
Haesten got away again?
