      "I have extremely high respect for Lagertha. She's honestly the best among the Vikings female characters! I really loved the fact that she was strong enough to leave Ragnar when her place is questioned. And the way she didn't make it Aslaug's fault or anything. It was really a very good portrayal of what a strong independent woman really is. I stan this woman on so many levels! Leaving a long time lover for cheating really solidified my love for her."

      "among the Vikings tv show characters, Bjorn is my least expected leader of vikings. I know he's all good, but seeing him as a little boy and now a man who looks like his father, I'm really surprised. Didn't expect him to foloow his father's footsteps but i hope he's better. "
