To this day, I am still confused as to how Hirst could bring Harald Finehair in, have his introduction centered around Aslaug, have them have that conversationa about his Princess and NOT think “huh, Aslaug should be Harald’s Princess?”
Like, I’m being serious rn and it’s not just about me wanting Aslaug to have a good storyline (which… okay was that honestly so much to ask for) it genuinely would have been better for the plot as a whole. For one, Harald and Halfdan really had nothing to do in the plot in s4a, this would have given them more relevance without needing a many scenes of set up. For another it would have explained why Harald doesn’t choose to attack Kattegat while Ragnar was missing but instead waited until Lagertha was Queen (if you still insist on killing Aslaug).
Also there are a lot of parallels between Erik BloodAxe and Ivar so imagine how lulzy it would be if they made Aslaug the mother of Erik BloodAxe.
