** When Aelle and Ecbert join forces, the gathered Saxons begin chanting, 'God save England!'. In truth, the concept of a united country called England wouldn't emerge until some time after the period this show is set. That being said, would have you have preferred them to chant, "God save the Heptarchy except for the Kentish! Bloody Kentish..."?
*** Actually, you would saying it depending on which kingdom you belong in from the Heptarchy, the seven kingdoms that England has prior to its unification. Example, 'God save Wessex/Mercia,etc'.

* AllMythsAreTrue: The metaphysics of both Norse and Christian belief are both implied to be valid, such as when [[spoiler:Odin tells the Vikings of Ragnar's death]] and [[spoiler:Athelstan posthumously appears to Ragnar]].

* InstantExpert: Happens with regards to characters learning languages.
** Ragnar asks Athelstan to teach him some English. When he arrives in England, he's proficient enough to hold fluent conversations with natives. The time between the two scenes is unclear, and we never see him practicing.
** Lagertha has a single scene in which she displays partial proficiency in the Saxon language. By her next appearance, perhaps a few weeks later, she's completely fluent.
** Rollo asks to learn how to speak the Frankish language. There is a single scene we see in which he literally throws his teacher across the room in frustration. In the next episode he is completely fluent.

* SomewhereAHerpetologistIsCrying: King Aelle's pit of venomous snakes is actually filled with non-venomous and non-indigenous pythons. Of course, this is probably intentional since how many actors would be willing to handle unpredictable, bad-tempered, and very venomous snakes just for the sake of realism and a single scene? Yeah, [[SarcasmMode not many...]]

* RememberTheNewGuy: In Season 1, Earl Haraldson presides over trials and hands down punishment. In Season 2, Kattegat suddenly has a "lawgiver" who presides over Rollo's trial and hands down a ruling that is (officially at least) beyond the Earl's(Ragnar by the point he shows up) control. At least it's more historically accurate.
** Justified in that Earl Ragnar can't levy judgement on his own brother. While the lawgiver does appear again, Ragnar handles every other trial seen in Kattegat that season.
