We discuss predictions for the Netflix and Crunchyroll anime series Vinland Saga Season 2 Episode 3 and include the release date and where to watch online.

In Season 2 Episode 2, viewers got to know several new characters in more depth while being introduced to several more. While people like Einar (Shunsuke Takeuchi) and Ketil (Hideaki Tezuka) seem to have Thorfinn’s (Yuto Uemura) best interest in mind, it’s clear not everyone working on the farm is as upstanding as the owner claims to be. Despite the lack of fighting fans are used to, the story and worldbuilding have remained top tier. Knowing Thorfinn, however, it won’t be long before the action starts heating up.

  • Ketil introduces Einar to Thorfinn and explains that they will work for him until they make enough to buy themselves free. This surprises Einar.
  • Several times Einar tries to ask Thorfinn about Ketil with no answer. Eventually, Thorfinn reveals that he is from Iceland.
  • Thorfinn reveals it is their job to clear out the entire forest on their side of the river. Einar immediately gets to work but starts off making mistakes early, prompting Thorfinn to help him by offering advice.
  • Einar is shocked to find out it will be delivered to him, only to find a scrap of bread and cheese intended for both him and Thorfinn to share. He attempts to complain, but the delivery men tell him he should be grateful they brought him anything at all. Before a fight can break out, Thorfinn steps in to de-escalate the situation. This frustrates Einar, but Thorfinn ignores him.
  • Later, Einar insists on telling Ketil about lunch, but Thorfinn tells him to drop it. Einar attempts to do it any way but ends up too distracted by a beautiful blonde woman traveling with Ketil to say anything.
  • The next day, Einar is surprised to see that even Ketil helps to harvest the wheat.
  • Ketil yells at his son Olmar, who refuses to cut wheat properly. They argue over Olmar inheriting the farm someday, but he claims he is going to be a swordsman instead. He goes to unsheath the sword on his back but is unable to do so and rides away in embarrassment.
  • Later that night, Olmar runs into two drunk farmhands who request his company and force him to continue hanging out with them.
  • Einar lies awake, concluding that Olmar must not know the real consequences of battle, only wanting to fight because it seems cool.
  • He tells Thorfinn about his village and how it was attacked by soldiers twice.
  • Thorfinn doesn’t respond but is wide awake, remembering his own village in flames.

I was decently accurate in my predictions last week. The ways of the farm were a bit of a learning curve for Einar, and he was the one mesmerized by the young blonde woman. While this episode didn’t contain much in the way of action, it looks like Einar isn’t entirely done causing trouble, according to next week’s preview. Let’s see if we can guess what may be going on.

  • Einar seems determined to bring up the injustices around the farm, which doesn’t look to make him popular with the other workers. It looks as if they get into a fight. If that is the case, I think this is when we’ll finally see Thorfinn in action again, coming to Einar’s rescue.
  • Olmar’s interaction with the drunk farmhands felt sketchy. I think it will come back to haunt him next week, as they are either leading him into a trap or planning to get him in trouble with his father. If they can get him drunk as well, I doubt it will end well for Olmar.
