Discuss Vikings

Since we see FLOKI speaking to the DEAD GIRL

who told him what happened, how she was killed and WHO killed her …

does anyone else think that indicates FLOKI will take over the JOB of being the NEXT SEER now that IVAR's killed the other one???

He also had that other strange vision while he was in PARIS where he witnessed the other guy having sex with THE BROOD MARE (who gave birth to Ubbe, Sigard, Hvitserk, and Ivar).

Then he also had that other vision where he thought he saw a VIKING GOD in the waterfall.

And he also saw a wooden statue bleeding while he was building boats in the woods.

Is this a result of eating MUSHROOMS or does FLOKI also stand between 2 WORLDS now like the SEER said he did???

And could that also mean RAGNAR and/or ATHELSTAN may also appear to him and speak to him like the other DEAD GIRL did???

It would be nice to see RAGNAR and ATHELSTAN again.

Didn't his son ALFRED also have a vision where he saw him???

Here's a CLIP of the scene and a couple of links where they discuss the meaning of Floki finding the CROSS in the CAVE:

in the cruelest of ironies, rather than evidence of the gods, Floki finds a Christian cross standing in the middle of the cave and a chalice lying on the ground beneath it. His gods have truly abandoned him which makes this scene so meaningful as we listen to plaintive cries that fall on deaf ears. And to add insult to injury, the effects of a minor volcanic eruption fill the cave with dust and ash, apparently trapping Floki inside, leaving him to die alone with the God that mocks him in his last moments. Is this the end for the once brilliant boat builder whose creations play a significant role in the Viking expansion? From a narrative perspective, it seems a fitting end to a tale that began with so much promise. Time will tell.

Floki discovers a volcano

Throughout the episode, Floki discovers the cave that he found at the end of Vikings Season 5, Episode 18. For those who wondered whether it would be Mount Eyjafjallajökull, that may be the case. It’s not been given a name of course, so it could be Katla, Hekla, or one of the many other volcanos in Iceland.

Whichever one it is, it’s getting ready to errupt. Floki works his way through where he finds the cross of the Christian God. Someone has been here before and you can tell he’s broken. Considering he was searching for the Norse Gods, that’s not too surprising.

However, there isn’t time to think about that. As the volcano starts to erupt, the walls around him start to come down. Ash and dust blow everywhere and it looks like we may be saying goodbye to Floki.

In a way, it may be time. Floki’s storyline just hasn’t been that interesting this season. It started with potential but has dragged for so long. The episode with Flatnose’s surprise attack was actually the most interesting of the lot.

But at the same time, losing Floki like this will be bittersweet. He’s been such a force for so long that his death seems a little pointless and devoid of meaning. Maybe that is supposed to be the case since not everyone dies a meaningful death.

What's interesting is how on one of their first raids to ENGLAND, FLOKI also SPITS out the WINE that he drinks from the CHALICE (after the priest had said the MASS and then FLOKI also slits his throat right after RAGNAR had also told those attending the mass that no one would be hurt if they did what they were told).

So his finding the CHALICE was interesting for that reason, as if it was also there TO MOCK him somehow for killing the other priest before much later on he also kills Athelstan (who also kills the other OLD PRIEST that FLOKI and KING HORIK and his son were tormenting ... by shooting him full of ARROWS for their amusement … while RAGNAR finds the LOOT hidden inside of the OVENS and hides the other small child to protect it from harm)???

So Floki finding the CHALICE and the CROSS inside of the CAVE was also like KARMA coming to pay a call on him.

And If FLOKI survives and he does become the NEXT SEER, is it possible the CROSS that he sees inside of the cave was a scene from a FUTURE TIME???

Perhaps the LAVA will also BLIND HIM and disfigure him so that he looks like the other now dead SEER that was killed by IVAR???

Such a pyroclastic flow would surely have cremated him instantly. At best he would have been preserved like the people of Pompeii.

In one of the interviews it points out how it wasn't that bad of a flow due to the way we also still see the TORCH he was holding hasn't gone out.

So apparently that also means FLOKI is able to survive.

Also WONDER about the SCENES we keep seeing in the OPENING CREDITS where it looks like a TIDAL WAVE comes down on top of KATTEGAT.

And we also see the WOODS that surround the area on FIRE.

Could whatever happens in ICELAND result in some AFTER EFFECT that reaches that area???

Since this week was also the SEASON FINALE guess we'll also have to wait a while to find out what happened to FLOKI.
