First Battle

2. First Battle

"Up onto the overturned keel| Clamber, with a heart of steel|
Cold is the ocean's spray|And your death is on its way
|With maidens you have had your way|Each must die some day!"

This was the first significant battle of the season.  Even though the English had the numbers, the Vikings had their shield-wall and incredible strategic fighting ways to win.  In my opinion, the death poem that Rollo yells during the battle is the best quote of the first season.  Relive the epic scene and watch the clip below.
