Last week on Vikings, both Ragnar and King Ecbert (Travis Fimmel and Linus Roache) were visited by the spirit of Athelstan (Guest star George Blagden). Ecbert took it to mean that his beloved Athelstan was dead, and he told Judith (Jennie Jacques) so. Ragnar’s vison said “Mercy” three times. Because of this, Ragnar let Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard) go for Helga’s (Maude Hirst) sake. Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig) fights a bear in the wilderness. Meanwhile Erlendur and Kalf (Edvin Endre and Ben Robson) plot Bjorn’s death using a crazy Berserker, pretty much in the same moment Kalf declares his love for Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick). Gisla humiliates Rollo (Morgane Polanski and Clive Standen) once more.

Last week on Vikings, Aethelwulf (Moe Dunford) led a mission to stamp down the Mercia rebellion and rescue Queen Kwenthrith (Amy Bailey). King Ecbert (Linus Roache) really didn’t care about her. He just wanted her boy, Magnus (Lothbrok?), saved. While husband’s away, the cat Judith (Jennie Jacques) will play… artist by defying gender bias (with Ecbert’s help), and study art with Athelstan’s doppelganger. Ecbert made her so happy. Rollo mimed war strategy with Count Odo (Owen Roe). Count Odo is secretly plotting against the Emperor and Princess (Lothaire Bluteau and Morgane Polanski). His confidante mistress is secretly plotting with someone else against Count Odo. Rollo (Clive Standen) is so out of his league. He tries a makeover to please Princess Gisla who laughs at him. Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard) escapes and the kids find him. He is strung up with water torture. Bjorn tries to survive in the snowy wilderness. Ragnar pities Helga (Travis Fimmel and Maude Hirst), and helps her bury her child.

Many spoilers below!!!

Before the Vikings 3.9 “Breaking Point” review, let’s recap last week. Some spoilers! Watch the episode before you read past the recap.

Last week’s “To The Gates” episode was action-packed pretty much throughout, with most of it taken up with the big attack and battle. I swear I almost had a heart attack and texted my editor that they killed another character off, when I saw Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig) with that blank corpse stare. And then I had to text “My bad!” when he wasn’t. THEN, I thought Rollo (Clive Standen) died and I was set to quit the show. And THEN I thought Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard) died by fire, and I was ok with that, but I was wrong about that, too. I couldn’t even really write about it last week, because that would be giving everything away. I needed a drink after that episode.

The History Channel
Air Date: Thursday, April 2nd, 2015, 10:00pm

There are serious spoilers if you are not caught up, so I suggest you go catch up. Hurry!

I think by now everybody knows the most shocking death on Vikings to date – our beloved Athelstan (George Blagden), was murdered by Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard), in Vikings 3.6 “Born Again”, just as he found peace and unity with his Christian God. When he dared to suggest he leave Kattegat, Ragnar could not bear the thought of him leaving. He was super supportive of him finding his faith and told him he loved him, but could not leave him. Floki, ever the fundamentalist, also could not stand their closeness, especially as they huddled together planning the Paris raid. So he struck Athelstan down, who accepted the death with arms open wide.

Spoilers, spoilers, spoilers, spoilers, spoilers!

Last week on Vikings 3.5 “The Usurper,” the warriors returned to Kattegat after a “successful” battle for Mercia. The discovery of Siggy’s death was too much for Rollo (Clive Standen), who was eaten with regret and grief. He’s back to self-destruction. Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) confronts Kalf (Ben Robson), with no results. Even Ragnar (Travis Fimmel) doesn’t help her. Aethelwulf (Moe Dunford) destroys the viking village in Wessex, slaughtering even the children. And King Ecbert (Linus Roache) was the puppetmaster the entire time. Ragnar… he told you he was corrupt. You should have listened.
