** 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.

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: Erik Selvik of Wardruna is the composer for the series since Season 2. Specifically, in "Boneless," Wardruna's "Helvegen" plays when the Vikings prepare to set off for Wessex again. May also be {{foreshadowing}}, as Helvegen is translated as "The Road To Hel."

** When [[spoiler: Judith stabs Kweintrith]], she turns to Ecbert and accusingly tells him to look at what he'd made her become. The way it is filmed, the music in the background, and the actress' delivery make it pretty damn creepy at best.

** For that, matter pretty much everybody in Ragnar's original band. Even Torstein, whom you thought would be safe having survived two seasons, ends up getting killed early on in Season 3.

** The "leeroys" part is also debatable - his aides suggestion to attack the Vikings while they're busy setting up camp seems reasonable enough, especially given how the alternative worked out; and when Aethelwulf tells them off it's not because of any tactical concerns but because he feels slighted that they dare to question his decisions.

* WeHardlyKnewYe: Erik (Vladimir Kulich) dies in the fourth episode. You may recognize him from previous badass Viking roles like [[The13thWarrior Buliwyf]] and [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Ulfric Stormcloak]], or just generally badass roles like the Swede from ''Smoking Aces''.

** [[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.]]
