Lagertha takes care of business

5. Lagertha takes care of business

7 of 11

This moment stuck out in my mind because it showed how merciless Viking women could be, as well.  During one of the raids, Lagertha catches Knut attempting to rape a woman.  When she tries to stop him, Knut and Lagertha began to fight it out.  After Knut gets the drop on Lagertha, he decides he wants to have his way with her instead.  Knut finds out that Lagertha was one beehive he should’ve never thrown rocks at as he was fatally stabbed for attempting to rape her.  The look Lagertha gives Knut as she’s twisting the knife is absolutely chilling.
