We discuss predictions for the Netflix and Crunchyroll anime series Vinland Saga Season 2 Episode 4 and include the release date and where to watch online.

In Vinland Saga Season 2 Episode 3, fans got confirmation that Thorfinn (Yuto Uemura) is still the strong warrior they remember, at least in mindset. While the characters did not come to battles or blows, the slowly increasing tension still made for a thrilling standoff between Thorfinn and Fox. The introduction of a new character, Snake (Fuminori Komatsu), really seemed to shake things up for the other guards, setting up what should be an interesting new path for Thorfinn and possibly Einar (Shunsuke Takeuchi).

  • The episode opens with Olmar and the farmhands from last week, Fox and Badger. They get him drunk but regret it when he becomes loud and belligerent.
  • Olmar challenges them to a fight, only to break into a tantrum when they easily beat him, as they are his father’s guards.
  • When Olmar begins to cry, Fox attempts to make him feel better. He knows that 17 is an awkward age, and Olmar feels like no one sees him as a man.
  • Fox advises that Olmar try killing someone as a right of passage. He suggests someone easy and decides on Thorfinn and Einar since they are just property anyway.
  • As Einar gets ready for the workday, he hears Thorfinn struggling in his sleep.
  • Einar wakes Thorfinn up from a nightmare he cannot remember.
  • The mysterious blonde woman who was traveling with Ketil appears, leaving Einar flustered once again. After briefly talking, she introduces herself as Arnheid and says she is also a slave.
  • Fox and Badger request that Thorfinn and Einar come with them. Thorfinn explains that they are bodyguards who live on the farm.
  • They are led to the fighting ring from the previous night, where Olmar is waiting for them with a sword. Fox asks that they let the young master kill him.
  • Einar ends up charging at Olmar before he can attack.
  • He yells at Thorfinn to get Ketil, but instead, Thorfinn stays behind and offers himself as a sacrifice if they allow Einar to go back to work.
  • After saying that all men are afraid to die, Fox uses his sword to slice at Thorfinn’s chest. Despite getting cut multiple times, Thorfinn does not flinch once. From a distance, a dark-haired man watches in awe.
  • Fox slashes off the tip of his ear and threatens to take his eye if he does not act scared.
  • As he lifts his sword, the dark-haired man yells for Fox to stop. We learn then that the dark-haired man’s name is Snake, and he seems to be the leader of the guards.
  • Snake punches Fox before demanding the other men explain what is going on.

Although I thought this would be the week we see Thorfinn in action, it seems we will have to wait to see him use his fighting skills. Still, things got intense, and we were left on a slight cliffhanger, wondering what will come of Thorfinn and Einar now that this new character has been introduced.

  • Snake seemed to be intrigued by Thorfinn. If he really is the guards’ leader, I feel he’s going to test Thorfinn’s skills and possibly have him join Ketil’s guard as well.
  • After almost starting a fight and getting two of his slaves killed, I could see Ketil having Fox and Badger either banished or ever killed.
