ch.54

Mycroft: Do you want to know how I actually hurt my wrist?

John: Yes.

Mycroft: I was hula-hooping. Anthea and I attend a class for fitness and for fun.

John: Oh my god?

Mycroft: I’ve mastered all the moves. The pizza toss, the tornado, the scorpion, the oopsie doodle.

John: Why are you telling me all this?

Mycroft: Because no one will ever believe you.

John: You are a sick man.

**SPOILER**

I thought this scene showed Thorfinn at his most human. Thorfinn hated Askeladd but once he witnesses Askeladd’s death Thorfinn realises that this man he hated is somehow important to him.  The very man who killed his father. Who he wished to kill. He must now watch die at the hands of another. But instead of relief he is filled with pain and emptiness. At first Thorfinn believes this is because he has been denied the revenge he sort for years. Thorfinn survived those years because of his hate for Askeladd. And now that the source of his hate and revenge are gone he has nothing. But it is also more than that. Thorfinn has now spent the majority of his life following Askeladd and because of this Askeladd has unintentionally played a pivotal role in Thorfinn’s upbringing. So it in no wonder that Thorfinn struggles to understand his own emotions at the death of this man who killed his father. Thorfinn is reliving what was done to him years ago by Askeladd. He is witnessing the death of his Father for a second time. And like before he is powerless to stop it.
