Trivia

It seems King Ecbert is loosely quoting from the song Turn! Turn! Turn! written by Pete Seeger and made famous by The Byrds when prince Aethelwulf is leaving for battle. But infact he is quoting the Bible - the lines come from the book of Ecclesiastes, as found in the King James version of the Bible. See more »

Goofs

When King Ecbert hears of Aelle's defeat, he is told the heathen army killed him near York. However, the city would have been called Eoferwic at the time. See more »

The Strategy
16 October 2017 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Egil and his warriors attack Kattegat, but Lagherta and her army defeat the invaders and captures Egil. She tortures him and he discloses that King Harald has paid his army. Aethelwulf joins a great army to defend Wessex and they head to intercept the Vikings. However Ivar plots a scheme to defeat the Saxons and Bjorn follows the plan. Who will win the battle?

"On the Eve" is a full of action episode of "Vikings" with two battles. In Kattegat, Lagherta now is aware of the true intentions of Harald. In Mercia, the Viking and the Saxon armies face each other and Aethelwulf orders his men to attack. My vote is eight.
