Vikings Season 6 Part 2 (spoilers)

Spoilers dead ahead!

So Part 2 of the final season aired last year on Amazon instead of the History Channel, and I didn't sail over there. They suddenly popped up on the History Channel this month (where they belong) and I binge watched them. So it was a mixed bag. This is one of my favorite shows in recent years.

Bjorn has a fairly fitting end, as does Gunnhild. Harald gets a lot of screen time, but I don't think he is anybody's favorite character. Or even somebody you love to hate. He's just annoying. Olaf is quickly dispatched.

Oleg goes out with a whimper. I expected some sort of clever retribution from the evil Russ tyrant. He just sort of stands there whimpering while Ivar and Igor debate over who is going to pick him off with a bow.

There is a fitting goodbye scene between Ivar and Igor. Katia (carrying Ivar's child) gets little more than a "kthxbai".

Then there's the Greenland debacle. Within seemingly 10 minutes of arriving, Kjetill plans to eat an entire whale himself right in front of his starving colonist friends. So that's kind of a dick move. Then fisticuffs break out. I couldn't help but think of the "That Escalated Quickly" scene in Anchorman. Back in the boats!

The Vikings attack England because they need to kill off a few more characters. Harald's end is anti-climactic. Ivar was apparently impressed with Oleg's end and chooses the same for himself. He just stands there to be gutted. Why?

The characters they needed to kill are dead so the battle is called off. Ubbe's conversion is appropriate.

It was good to see Floki again. I'm not sure why the character was put on ice. There are different ways to accomplish that. In a soap opera, you go into a coma. In the Walking Dead, you get in a helicopter. In the Vikings, you disappear into a cave. And apparently pop out on a different continent? Is Rollo in a cave somewhere??

The New World thread was OK. It should have been cut so they could focus on other weak threads. The early seasons really took their time, but this final season was all just so rushed.

The soundtrack was excellent, no disappointments there.
