Hello Asharah,

Did you click onto the link and see the PREVIEW TRAILER???

If so, what do you think of the NEW RULER???

Wonder how he managed to take over the town when someone else also wanted it for themselves???

Perhaps the person who wants it will also DOUBLE CROSS the one who has it and take it away from him???

ROLLO coming back into the story again this season should also make things interesting.

If FLOKI's settlement in ICELAND failed and he comes back to KATTEGAT again, then seeing him meeting back up with ROLLO again could be even more interesting.

Wonder if he'll try to SNEAK UP on Rollo in the middle of the night the same way as he did the night when he killed ATHELSTAN???

Rollo would probably also have lots of GUARDS on Duty to protect him though, whereas ATHELSTAN had no one to protect him from FLOKI.

So if he's going to be able to get to him, then FLOKI would probably also need some help from others who also HATE Rollo (for the way that he BETRAYED them TWICE).

He'd probably also be sleeping on whatever ship he uses to get to KATTEGAT, which would probably also make it that much more difficult for FLOKI to be able to get to him.

:thinking:

Seeing as how neither Floki nor any of his followers could return to Lagertha's kingdom after ditching her before the big battle, I don't think any of them would return to Kattegut unless news of her defeat got to Iceland.

Where else would they have to go Bob???

Perhaps they'll stop by Norway on the way back to visit that KING and then hear about what's happened in KATTEGAT???

And since FLOKI was also a foster father to you know who …

(remember how the BROOD MARE begged FLOKI to teach her one son how to be a VIKING because she didn't think Ragnar was good enough ... even though he also made excellent warriors out of his other 4 sons) …

naturally Floki would want to return back to KATTEGAT again after that.

Something tells me his religious fanaticism and his devotion to the Viking Gods might also CLASH with whatever kind of NOTIONS his Foster son has in mind.

In the video PREVIEW CLIP it also looks like he's got the same kind of ideas as CEASAR had in Rome before he got stabbed to death by BRUTUS and the rest of them who saw things differently.

Could we also be heading for a "SPEAK HANDS for ME" (a quote from Shakespeare's play) scene between FLOKI and his FOSTER child???

Could we also hear an ET TU FLOKI uttered before the death of the victim???

:thinking:

Perhaps the Viking occupation in England?

Or perhaps many will die before the survivors of the "winning" faction there change their ways, diet, whatever they must in order to adapt to their new home.

Is it possible FLOKI could be the ONLY SURVIVOR???

Perhaps the Viking occupation in England?

Does one still exist in this story???

Historically The BROOD MARE'S BRAT is suppose to have ruled the area around YORK and died there, but in the show he's fighting with the KING of NORWAY for different territory???

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ivar_the_Boneless

865 the Great Heathen Army, led by Ivar, invades the Anglo-Saxon Heptarchy.[6] The Heptarchy was the collective name for the seven kingdoms East Anglia, Essex, Kent, Mercia, Northumbria, Sussex and Wessex. The invasion was organised by the sons of Ragnar Lodbrok, to wreak revenge against Ælla of Northumbria who had supposedly executed Ragnar in 865 by throwing him in a snake pit, but the historicity of this explanation is unknown.[7][8] According to the saga, Ivar did not overcome Ælla and sought reconciliation. He only asked for as much land as he could cover with an ox's hide and swore never to wage war against Ælla. Then Ivar cut the ox's hide into such fine strands that he could envelop a large fortress (in an older saga it was York and according to a younger saga it was London) which he could take as his own. (Compare the similar legendary ploy of Dido.) Late the next year the army turned north and invaded Northumbria, eventually capturing Ælla at York in 867.[9] According to legend, Ælla was executed by Ivar and his brothers using the blood eagle, a ritual method of execution of debated historicity whereby the ribcage is opened from behind and the lungs are pulled out, forming a wing-like shape.[5] Later in the year the Army moved south and invaded the kingdom of Mercia, capturing the town of Nottingham, where they spent the winter. King Burgred of Mercia responded by allying with the West Saxon king Æthelred of Wessex, and with a combined force they laid siege to the town. The Anglo-Saxons were unable to recapture the city, but a truce was agreed whereby the Danes would withdraw to York.[9] The Great Heathen Army remained in York for over a year, gathering its strength for further assaults.[9] Ivar and Ubba are identified as the commanders of the Danes when they returned to East Anglia in 869, and as the executioners of the East Anglian king, Edmund the Martyr, for refusing their demand that he renounce Christ.[10] How true the accounts are of Edmund's death is unknown, but it has been suggested that his capture and execution is not an unlikely thing to have happened.[11] Ivar disappears from the historical record sometime after 870.[9] His ultimate fate is uncertain.

So when would he have had time to capture another territory and RULE it at the same time as he's suppose to be busy capturing these other KINGDOMS in ENGLAND???
