What Is The Plot?
With the death of Askeladd, the first season came to a close. In his last breath, Askeladd encourages him to follow in Thors’ footsteps and explore the worlds beyond. Thorfinn accidentally drops his father’s knife at the end of season 1, and a series of flashbacks play out on his blade. Oddly enough, the montage wasn’t just about past events but also a teaser of future events. The second season of Vinland Saga will adapt the manga’s Slave Arc. Vinland Saga S2 Episode 1 will focus on Thorfinn’s slave life in Denmark.
Now that he’s missed his chance to murder Askeladd, he’s attempting to find out what else he can do with his life. As a result, he is pushed into despair. His growth as a person is the main emphasis of this arc. In this new setting, Thorfinn meets his first friend, Einar. He will experience new feelings and know what it means to have a partner. The new season may have eschewed action in favor of drama. But it nevertheless promises to be an outstanding installment and one in which Thorfinn will get more screen time to fit the role of the main character. Vinland saga Season 2 will bring in more nuanced and mature drama.
