Apologies for the lateness! I was doin’ stuff, Lori. Thaaangs. (Actually I was fishing with my dad.)

PREVIOUSLY, ON VIKINGS:

Ragnar got put on trial, but won his case in about 14 seconds because Rollo stepped up and was actually decent. Unfortunately, they’re attacked by assassins who manage to kill Erik. Then Ragnar sits on a cliff a lot.
