The vikings launch their attack on Paris. Lagertha and Kalf lead the attack on the bridge and the main gate. After their attempt to knock down the gates with a battering ram is unsuccessful, they manage to pull them down - but are not prepared for what they find on the other side. Floki leads the attack on the wall but the city's defenses are formidable. As it becomes clear the battle is lost, Floki cannot understand why the gods have deserted him. In Kattegat, Porunn leaves her child with Auslag and goes off into the wilderness. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


King Egbert of Wessex could not have been alive at the same time as Emperor (or even king) Charles in Paris. Egbert died in 839 and Charles did not become king of Francia until 843. He wasn't Holy Roman Emperor until 875. See more »


Ragnar Lothbrok: [Praying to Athelstan] You think I went too far with Floki. Can you actually believe that he thought that I would let him lead without having an agenda? If I was him, I would worry less about the gods and more about the fury of a patient man.

the new french queen reminds me of Elmer Fudd
9 April 2015 | by forrestgnomeSee all my reviews

Love the show, but the new French Queen spweeks wike she has mawbles in hew chweeks.

Wascally Wabbit.

Episode was OK, but the storming of the gates seemed cheap and the wall scale was also a bit amateur. These great warriors should have had better warfare techniques. I'm probably too used to GOT. Here we have lower budget History channel.

Base cast was spot on and Floki was great. Especially when he was in the water.

And again, the new French queen is just the worse. Like Copolla casting his daughter in GF III. Total casting mistake. If you're going to make a mistake with a female role at least cast someone who is hot.
