While walking through the farm, Thorfinn and Einar encounter the farmhands. While the free men harass them, Thorfinn tries to stop Einar from attacking them. However, Einar tries to punch the main opponent anyway but is defeated by Thorfinn, who hits the man first. The two groups then break out, and Thorfinn sees moments from his past as he passes out.

When this season first started, I didn’t expect Thorfinn and Einar to be the dynamic duo they’ve become. I particularly enjoy the way both have changed as the season progresses, with Thorfinn becoming the calmer and more rational of the two while Einar becoming more tired and irascible. Although Einar still manages to keep his cool most of the time, his anger is reminiscent of season one’s Thorfinn, and it’s interesting to see Thorfinn react to that now that he’s matured.

This episode had more action, which was a nice touch. While the season didn’t need fights to carry, it’s still fun to see Thorfinn use his skills at times. Hopefully he doesn’t come back to bite him more often.
