You are watching: Ragnar vs rollo
Rhelp on Rollo: Ragnar assumed he was super clever before through his portage, but Rollo had the emperor’s fleet fulfill them head on in the river. We won’t go into eextremely information of this battle given that it is really a fight that requirements to be seen to be thought, but understand that it was bloody, gruesome and truly an epic fight that will certainly go down in Vimonarchs background. After a difficult press from Ragnar, Rollo’s soldiers are going down in substantial numbers, however retreat is not an alternative for him as he pushes his soldiers to fight harder.
Ragnar takes the last little bit of drugs left by Yidu and he’s looking pretty damaged down as Rollo’s troops push forward at tremendous speeds till they breach the Viking’s ship hulls and also communicate in hand also to hand also combat. Finally the minute came wbelow Rollo and Ragnar challenged off and also tright here was so a lot rage between these two brothers that we cringed with every swing they took. Everyone on Ragnar’s side was falling as Lagertha and also Floki both were stabbed, and also as soon as Lagertha went dvery own everyone was loaded onto a watercraft (consisting of Ragnar) and also taken to security as Rollo appreciated an additional victory against Ragnar.
Time jump: After every little thing that occurred in Paris tbelow is a huge time jump wright here we check out that Ragnar has actually disshowed up for years, and that Ragnar’s sons have actually grown up quite a bit. His sons learn around Ragnar’s betrayal (he kbrand-new that the negotiation in Wessex was damaged as quickly as he left and hid it from everyone) and many type of of the sons case that they would certainly kill him if he went back, but not Ivar – he respects the route he took. As for Bjorn, well he is leading a new charge towards the Mediterranean, a brand-new mystery land. So where is Ragnar? He has changed residence, greeted via hostility by his sons and also his civilization. He challanges anyone that wants to kill him and also take the position of king… yet you will need to wait until the show comes earlier to find out if anyone accepted the difficulty.
It was wonderful to see Rollo ultimately feel prefer he stepped outside of Ragnar’s shadow and also was the shining star he always wanted to be… also if this moment he wanted all his life was at the expense of his household, heritage and also everything he ever before thought in. Many assumed that we were going to lose Rollo tonight (for those of you who don’t recognize his background we won’t spoil it for you), but rather this was his moment to shine. Episode grade: A

I didn’t treatment so a lot in the finish of this seachild, the had actually attracted it out as well far imo. The battles on the river were sort of dumb as well, via the insane numbers the vikings had they could’ve simply gone to shore and also sacked the 2 little towers with the chains, instead of sending a little raiding party that gained stuck in the mud bereason they didn’t sfinish a scout first, lol.And Ragnar holding his very own against Rollo in battle? Like, a 20kg lighter, smaller male through shorter reach, that wasn’t as well realistic to start through and even less after a major leg(?) injury that provides him a limp, plus being all shaky from a bad drug habit – still fight his physical specimales of a brother to a draw? That kind of eliminated the seakid for me.
Loved the scene through Gisela praying and the statue of Mary shedding tears, reminded me of ‘The Miracle Of Peckham’, was expecting Del Boy to pop up at any type of moment.
Vimonarchs is the closest of the majority of shows to having an historical perspective. They do take some pretty good liberties via occasions, yet. Rollo was absolutely not Ragnar’s brvarious other. Many events they display as sequential actually taken place many years acomponent.
If you understand any kind of European history, you understand that Rollo would endure and also win the day. After all, he has to go on to uncovered Normandy and his descendants strike England. Next seachild hregarding be the last for our Norse King, but. I feel his day via snakes or wolfs is near.
Stalso D. HobbsGlad you pointed out the historical truth that Rollo wasn’t going to die in the fight. He lived, married nobility and also developed a dynasty and among his descendants was William the Conqueror who attacked and also dominated England in 1066. I have actually been appalbrought about read so many “professional” doubters question whether Ragnar would certainly kill Rollo or not.
Hi tbelow, we do know the background of Ragnar and Rollo, we were not stating it in our testimonial for human being that didn’t understand the history themselves and wanted to watch the display without spoilers (just as entertainment) to how it all ends. We try to keep points as spoiler cost-free as we have the right to in our reviews for what’s coming up since everyone doesn’t understand.
Guess you’re right, its even more entertaining. Maybe as the series continues they’ll slip in a small bit more historic facts. I am enjoying the series, regardmuch less.
