The dead have no rest!
Thorfinn has finally returned to the Island and apparently he’s in a relationship with Gudrid! He, the ancient Norse warrior who has claimed so many victims, feels so lonely when it comes to face his past. The weight of these deaths prevents him from closing his eyes and rest. The sad thing is that his girlfriend would like to help him!
After a hectic night, it is time to plan the route to Vinland at the best time of the year so that they can set up a colony in the best possible conditions. Thorfinn decides that they will stay and not leave until next spring. In the meantime he asks Leif and his son to recruit other settlers in Greenland. He would also like Big Eyes to take advantage of this summer to check if the planned route is safe.
It is at this point that he tells them that he does not intend to settle in Vinland and that, under these conditions, they should ask someone else for this service. He does not believe in their project, for him, they are only idealists who do not realize what they are getting into.
This chapter is a transitional chapter. The beginning of the final act of the manga. This project, carried by Thorfinn, is thought by Big Eyes as a utopian dream because the journey may be long and dangerous. But also, for the installation to face itself properly, they will have to arrive at the right time to be able to plough and sow if they want to be able to survive there. Only what happens next will tell us which of the two men were right and, above all, will show us whether our hero finally manages to find redemption.
