** Siggy Bjorndatter's death: Either you don't care or you do care. For the former not even her own father, grandfather or grandmother were paying attention to her with Lagertha being more interested in Torvi's son Also there is the fact that she is completely fictional. For the latter, it was due to Aslaug's lack of care for her but when you take into consideration how much of a bastard Ragnar is to her (well, everyone really but that's not the point) it makes sense that she'd have little to no interest in Siggy. To make it even worse or better, depending on your view, Siggy's death is just swept under the rug. It never gets mentioned after it is reported to Aslaug by Sigurd.

** [[spoiler: Ragnar is, if not over it, teetering on the edge with the measures he is taking to hide the destruction of the Wessex settlement. He murders the messenger in cold blood and, after telling Yidu that she was not free after all, he drowns her when she implies a threat that she will give up the secret.]]

*** The silver lining in the last case is that [[spoiler: Lagertha promised to take care of said child, and considering her MamaBear tendencies one has to imagine that Erlendur would be short a head ([[GroinAttack or two]]) if the tried to make good on his threat.]]

** Torvi, Jarl Borg's far younger widow, has crap heaped on her by the bucketful through absolutely no fault of her own. [[spoiler: Even now that she lives with Bjorn, things aren;t exactly peachy. He's never abusive, but after his experiences in the wilderness he is a scary and distant man.]]

** Helga, Floki's wife, also gets hit hard, starting at the end of season 3. [[spoiler:Her husband reveals he murdered Athelstan, after which she can't even look him in the eye, even though she still loves him. At the beginning of season 4, Floki is arrested by Bjorn, and Helga humiliates herself by trying to protect him from the group-administered punishments he is subjected to. Floki's crimes and arrest leave her more or less ostracized from everyone in Kattegat, and her and her daughter without income or food for the winter. Then, her daughter dies of the fever. Her husband is tied up in a cave, reminiscent of the punishment of the god Loki, with drops of water falling on his head (as a form of water torture), and she spends all her time holding a bowl over him to stop the drops because as much as she abhors what he did, she still loves him.]] What makes all of this worse is that Helga is one of the nicest characters in the series, lacking both the cruelty and/or fundamentalist attitudes that mark the other vikings, and is the least deserving of the mess her life has become. Even Ragnar feels sorry for her, and [[spoiler:when he finally sets Floki free, it's implied he did it more for Helga's sake than anything.]]

* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Aslaug. While she still has a few haters who'll never forgive her for breaking up Ragnar and Lagertha, her portrayal in the third and fourth seasons has changed a lot of negative opinions about her. In season two, she was made out to be utterly righteous and incapable of doing wrong, despite being harsh, a tad bit selfish, and possessing a cruel side. While her personality hasn't really changed much, her treatment in the show is now reflecting who she is -- a complicated woman with her good points and her bad points, like all the other vikings -- instead of making her out to be something she's not.

* RonTheDeathEater: Aslaug. Many fans are willing to paint her as a home-wrecker or a spoiled brat when in fact she is far from either. Most of these are Lagertha fans, obviously.
