The Mad Queen and The Powerless Leader
17 January 2019 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In Wessex, Alfred learns that his brother died and later Judith tells him that she poisoned her son Aethelred. Alfred wants to lead his army, but Ubbe tries to persuade him to command the Saxon army instead. In Iceland, Floki witnesses what he has built with his madness and a family is slaughtered in a betrayal.

"The Most Terrible Thing" is the weakest episode of "Vikings" so far. Judith turned into a mad queen in a pointless attitude. The terrible segment about Floki and his settlers in Iceland has become stupid and the intention is this storyline is to be a filler in this series. Floki now is a powerless leader and could die and end this annoying segment. My vote is seven.
