We discuss predictions for the Netflix and Crunchyroll anime series Vinland Saga Season 2 Episode 9, including the release date and where to watch online.
Tensions grew in this week’s episode of Vinland Saga as Thorfinn (Yuto Uemura) and Einar (Shunsuke Takeuchi) found their crops destroyed by some of Ketil’s (voiced by Hideaki Tezuka) farmhands. While Thorfinn was okay with letting it go, Einar couldn’t just let it roll off his shoulders. In the end, he wasn’t the one to throw the first punch, with Thorfinn stepping in for him. Now that a brawl hasn’t broken out, though, Thorfinn is sure to face the consequences of those actions later.
- In a nightmare, Thorfinn dreams of a younger him going after Einar’s cowering family. Thorfinn eventually wakes up screaming.
- For once, Thorfinn at least remembers a little bit of his dream, but not much.
- Einar then tells him he said “Askeladd” in his sleep.
- The other farmhands begin to complain, saying it is unfair that enslaved people and farmhands are allowed to cultivate the land.
- Thorfinn tells Einar about Askeladd, admitting that he was the man who killed his father. He then reveals that although he no longer hates Askeladd, he feels empty without him.
- Thorfinn can’t help the feeling he’s forgetting something.
- Sverkel teaches Thorfinn and Einar how to fish using a net.
- Thorfinn asks Einar if he thinks humans can change. Einar responds that he believes it is possible.
- Thorfinn and Einar return to their wheat field to find that the plants have been dug up from the roots.
- Einar knows this is the work of the farmhands and leaves to find them.
- Thorfinn stops him from using violence against a free man. They tell Pater, who says he will lead an investigation.
- Einar tells Thorfinn that, unlike them, Arnheid cannot work her way to freedom.
- Thorfinn and Einar encounter the farmhands, and Thorfinn tries his hardest to keep Einar from attacking them.
- Einar attempts to punch the main antagonist anyway, but Thorfinn hits the man first.
- The two groups then break into a brawl, and Thorfinn sees moments from his past as he falls unconscious.

I was off on my predictions last week, as it seems Einar is surprisingly more okay with Arnheid and Ketil’s relationship than I expected. We also did not see much of Thorgil this week either, but that could change when word of Thorfinn and Einar’s fight with the farmhands gets out.
- Despite the farmhands being in the wrong, I see no way that, as enslaved people, Thorfinn and Einar do not get punished for this fight. I imagine Thorfinn will be punished the harshest for technically starting the fight and will end up being whipped.
- I don’t know if the punishment for attacking a free man is death, but I could see Thorfinn and Einar being spared if Pater finds evidence that the farmhands destroyed their crops. I can’t imagine Ketil would be happy with his farmhands either, as the loss of any crops loses him money.
