Sporadic Scene: Vikings (Season 2×07) – Blood Eagle

Vikings is just one of those shows that works phenomenally. Initially intrigued by the fact that this was hosted by the History Channel, I was soon roped in by the way that they used a series for epic storytelling, to relay the history in an intersting manner. Vikings is pretty heavy on the gore and bloodshed, so it is nice that they do not pussyfoot around the ancient viking rituals. Below is a scene in which someone was subjected to the ritual of the Blood Eagle, and I thought that it was done excellently, with the ritual shown, as well as the emotions, honour, suffering and respect.

If you have a scene that you would like featured, drop me a mail at sporadiczoe@hotmail.com with a picture/gif/video of the scene and an explanation as to why (should you want to include it).

        Go out and watch Vikings IMMEDIATELY. I wrote a review on it a while back. It is presented historically, and is for the most part accurate, which is great. It’s like visually presenting the history, making it realistic and something you will want to learn more about. They really captured the whole viking era, and how they operated. I loved the focus on their faiths and beliefs, and I feel that this scene perfectly captures how important some things were to them. Go on and watch it hahaha, you won’t regret it.

        Excellent! Yeah, gosh I can’t wait to get some context for this particular scene. And Viking . . . culture ? (if you call it that) . . . has always been something I’ve known far too little about considering how much it interests me.

        Yay! I think you would thoroughly enjoy the show then. Ooooh, when this scene is properly fleshed out for you, it takes on a whole different meaning and is even more intense!
