Vinland Saga Season 2 Episode 24, titled “Hometown,” delivered an unexpected twist as Canute, portrayed by Kensho Ono, made a surprising decision that left viewers in awe. After a tense confrontation at Ketil’s farm, Thorfinn (Yuto Uemura) managed to sway Canute’s plans, leading to a major shift in the narrative.
Previously, it appeared that Thorfinn’s efforts were futile, but against all odds, his words resonated with Canute and caused him to reevaluate his entire strategy. With Canute revamping his goals, Thorfinn and Einar (Shunsuke Takeuchi) found themselves with an even greater opportunity to create the paradise they had long dreamt of.
The turn of events was truly remarkable, considering the proximity of a potential clash between Canute and his old friend Thorfinn. As tension escalated, Canute’s men tried to persuade Thorfinn to leave, while Einar cursed the Vikings, realizing the extent of power dynamics in determining battle outcomes. However, Thorfinn surprised everyone by asserting that he would not fight Canute. Instead, he expressed his intention to flee if necessary.
Thorfinn’s unwavering determination caught Canute off guard, prompting him to burst into hysterical laughter. The contrast of Thorfinn’s lack of bargaining power and his resolute conviction amused Canute, who had grown accustomed to people attempting to negotiate or even kill him throughout the years. In a moment of realization, Canute withdrew from Ketil’s farm and called off all future plans to seize other farms. Furthermore, he disbanded his armies, symbolizing a significant shift in his character.
The bond between Thorfinn and Einar strengthened as they resolved to embark on a journey to Vinland together. Their shared objective was to create a world where individuals no longer lived in fear of slavery or war. With heartfelt goodbyes to their friends from the farm, Thorfinn and Einar set their sights on a better future.
Meanwhile, Olmar and the former guards took charge of tending to the farm, ensuring its prosperity even in Thorfinn and Einar’s absence. The episode concluded with Pater fulfilling his promise, visiting Arnheid’s grave.
