Vinland Saga Season 2 Episode 10 Summary

The episode begins with Thorfinn and Einar celebrate as they chop down the last tree on their land. As they watch in awe, Thorfinn comments that it took them more than three years to clear all the lands under their watch.

Thorifinn asks Einar what he intends to do once he’s free, and he replies that he doesn’t know. He wished he could buy too Arnheids freedom, but they know it Ketil has no intention of letting her go.

What does Thorfinn plan to do when he’s free?

Einar asks Thorfinn if he plans to return to Iceland once he’s free and Thorfinn says he might do it, but he hasn’t really made up his mind yet. However, he wonders if it is possible to rid the world of war and slavery.

When Ketil sees that they have finally cleared their entire land, Ketil tells Thorfinn and Einar that he will offer them a discount so they are free once they sow the seeds on their land.

On his way out, Ketil asks Thorfinn and Einar to tell his father that he has gone to Jenning to visit the ailing King Harald. Before he leaves, Ketil returns and offers Thorfinn and Einar the opportunity to work for him as farmhands once they pay off their debts.

Also on the way to Jenning’s Knutgoing there by ship.

What is King Harald’s condition?

When Canute arrives in Jenning, he is greeted by Wulf, who informs him that King Harald is not well. His illness has only gotten worse over the past month, making it difficult for him to speak. Harald’s doctor says the next few days will be the most critical.

As Canute grabs the child’s toy that has rolled at his feet, he suddenly sees the severed head of King Sweyn rolled toward him instead.

When his younger brother Canute, as King of Denmark, wanted to conquer England, he lent him a fleet of warships and his support in Canute’s endeavours. It seems that the two have always been close and supportive of each other.

Does Harald have an heir?

King Harald has no heir. When Canute first visits Harald, his brother struggles to hold his hand. He tells Canute he has been waiting for him and tells his younger brother that he plans to leave Denmark for him.

As Canute holds his brother’s hand and tells him to get well soon, King Sweyn’s head reappears. He scolds Canute for lying to the many he himself poisoned, reminding him how much Harald always liked him and how they could have ruled together.

According to King Sweyn, Canute avoids the refreshments to prevent poisoning because it is the same method he uses himself.

Speaking to King Sweyn’s head, Canute tries to reason with him, saying that Harald must die because two kings would lead to disaster and prevent him from creating a unified utopia.

Vinland Saga Season 2 Episode 10 ending explained

In a flashback, we see Harald and Canute playing, with Harald encouraging Canute to become a more muscular man than he and her father. The episode ends with Canute staring out his window in disappointment.

Each episode feels like the storytelling Vinland saga only gets more convincing. It’s one of the few anime where a time warp or tone shift didn’t bother me at all. If anything, the series has only gotten better.

I can honestly say I didn’t see that Canute plot twist at all. Even though we’ve seen so little of him this season, his character development has been interesting. Seeing what made him the man he is now was as entertaining as it was shocking, especially when you think back to what Canute was like in season one. I’m excited to see how his brother’s death will affect the show going forward, especially now that we know Canute is the cause of Harald’s illness. At this point I’m not sure what to expect but in the best possible way.
