I'm rooting for Aethelwulf but I don't think he will ever find happiness. Also Jonathan Rhys Meyers is way too handsome and he looks ridiculously out of place.

My prediction is that Bjorn becomes the holy roman emperor by the end of the season

Bishop Heahmund. He's based on a real Heahmund that I can't find much information on. According to an interview I read a while ago he was partially created as a response to Christian viewers who were upset that there wasn't a strong Christian on the show which I don't entirely get considering how devout Aethelwulf is and how much he's improved over the years.

Aethelwulf is the biggest cuck on tv

I know that in Ancient roman times that it wasn't an insult to gently caress dudes as long as you were the one that did the loving. Could be a similar case here.

Al wants Deadwood to be a real town with respectable and experienced people in leadership positions so that the loving cocksucking government doesn't come in and gently caress everything up when they come in to annex the whole thing.

Ivar walking around with one cane is ridiculous

With Alfred becoming King, this show is encroaching on The Last Kingdom territory. I hope they introduce a character named Uhtred.

In The Last Kindom, the protagonist Uhtred kills Ubba, Ragnar's son. Someone also mentions that Ubba's brother, a guy named Ivar, has been killed in Ireland. There's also a King Ecbert in one of the early episodes but he is not respected, has zero speaking lines, and is considered a puppet for the Danes.

I saw some discussion about Ivar walking around elsewhere. I think we are seeing it from his perspective, or how he wants something to be. It's a fantasy. It's like how Halfdan had visions of the desert during the battle.

The Last Kingdom has much better battles and interesting cinematography. There was one battle that was all POV and in one take. You see them do cool strategies too.

You also see the Mary Sue protagonist jump over the enemy shield wall and solo their entire back line

They haven't done anything like that in season 2. He also gets taken down a few pegs and isn't all-powerful anymore.

I saw it a while ago but I don't recall the british fighting very much. It was mostly the Danes fighting each other, if you count Uhtred as a Dane. In the second season the Brits and invaders are starting to integrate together with many of the invaders converting to Christianity.

I think the direction is clearly Alfred vs. Ivar from here on out. They alluded to it earlier when Alfred beat Ivar in a game of chess.

The brother decided to step down. Probably hurt his pride that his mom called him a dumbass.

I hope we get to see Uhtred son of Uhtred show up.

Bjorn's battle makeup looks terrifying too.
