Vikings - Yol - Advance Preview + Dialogue Teasers

It’s Christmas this week on Vikings, and each country is bustling as the characters ready themselves for whatever local customs their religion and society demands. However, when families gather together there is bound to be a certain amount of quarrelling and bickering, especially if there is a struggle for power or old resentments lurking in the shadows.

The intricate political alliances that Ecbert has been so carefully sowing to strengthen his influence over the English kingdoms come under scrutiny during Aelle’s Yule time visit. He may have thought that he had been fairly discrete so far, yet Aelle is no fool and can tell when the odds are being stacked up against him. If legend, and indeed history, are anything to go by then he will be the one to keep an eye on through the upcoming episodes. I have a feeling he, and his kingdom of Northumbria, will be left out in the cold as the animosity grows between the two three - if you count Kwenthrith - Kings, which will have dire consequences for all when Ragnar finally returns.

Back in Kattegat there is someone who is possibly even more of a social pariah however. The village is preparing for Yol by decorating the Great Hall and feasting, but Floki is only an observer of this year’s celebrations. Not that he is too concerned after two separate incidents make it clear to him that the gods do have a purpose for him still. Firstly, a visit to the Seer brings news of a prodigious nature, and later when a prominent member of the community requests a favour from him, he realises that he was right to choose to stay in the village after Ragnar cut him down. This change of fortune could bring complications later down the line for both he and Helga if certain people were to discover their secrets though.

Bjorn’s territorial fight with the bear was brief, and perhaps a tad unsatisfying considering it has been teased for nigh on a year. But not to fear, the real battle is about to hit once Erlendur’s Berserker finds his prey, and it’s this mission that will be the one to prove Bjorn’s worth as a man. He’s already wounded from his earlier encounter, and is also swiftly relieved of his axe during the rapid chain of attacks designed to disorient him, so it’s time for him to think creatively if he’s going to get through this in one piece. Fortunately, he can be innovative when it comes to improvising a weapon, and ruthlessly coldblooded in achieving his goals. If your face muscles don’t involuntary twitch during this brawl then you’re made of sterner stuff than I.

Yol airs on Thursday March 10 at 10/9c, below are a few dialogue teasers to see you through until then. If you want to have a go at guessing who said what I will fill in any correct answers before it airs. Don’t forget to come back and vote in our poll after the episode and let us know what you thought.

“But in order to become king of all Norway, you’d have to overthrow my husband” Aslaug to Harald Finehair

“Now, I see some gross and indecent familiarity between you and your Father-in-law. My god, to think that you are my child!” Aelle To Judith

“You know exactly what I mean. Don’t play games. I waited and I understand. Show me that you understand, show me who you are”

“I won’t mind. You are free to go with her, I won’t be jealous” “If that is what you want” Aslaug to Ragnar then Ragnar to Aslaug, about Yidu

“Queen Aslaug, let me introduce myself. My name is Harald, but my people call me King Finehair” Harald Finehair to Aslaug

“What does it mean for Mercia, and how do we restore legitimacy to such a fractured and wounded kingdom?”

“What is wrong with you, bring the son of Ragnar Lothbrok a drink. We must celebrate your arrival” Kalf to a servant, about Bjorn

“My lord, battered or not, it would make no difference. You don’t own me father. And nor does any man own me”

“Princess Gisla, I beg you not to do this. I know that my destiny is to be with you. And I swear, that like you, I am prepared to defend Paris to the death” Rollo to Gisla

“But you are still in pain. In here. You think I want to poison you?”

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
