Jutulheim is the third episode of the first season of Ragnarok, and the third episode of the series overall.

Synopsis[]

The break-in confirms what Magne suspects: He must take matters into his own hands. After tying up loose ends, the Jutuls put the teen to the test.

Plot[]

Magne learns that he can run superhumanly fast, and is uninjured when he's hit by a snowplow traveling 50 km/h. The Jutuls invite him to dinner and after drinking mead he realizes the family is not as they seem, such as mother Ran Jutul holds him to a standstill, then defeats him at arm-wrestling. When he looks in the mirror, he sees a bearded warrior version of himself.

  • Jump Scare: Magne crosses a road unmindfully and is hit by a snowplow.

  • The Mirror Shows Your True Self: Downplayed. Drunk from the mead and after seeing Ran's true form, Magne goes to the bathroom to cool down for a moment. When he looks into the mirror his reflection has long braided hair and a beard, and lightning is flashing in the background.
  • Mythology Gag: The dinner the Jutuls references "Thor's Adventures on his Journey to the Land of the Giants", in which Thor and Loki are invited to Utgard, the capital of Jötunheimr, to take part in several challenges, including a meat eating contest and a drinking contest involving drinking horns.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: The doctors can't find a single injury when they examine Magne after his accident.
  • No One Could Survive That!: Vidar witnesses Magne being hit by the snowplow and leaves the scene, thinking that Magne is surely dead. He even happily tells Ran and their children that now he doesn't need to kill Magne himself anymore.
  • No One Should Survive That: Everyone is baffled that Magne survived being hit by a snowplow unharmed. Magne hears the doctors say that they have never seen something like this before.
  • Oh, Crap!: Saxa's reaction when she sees Magne in class the next day, without a mark on him.
  • Practice Target Overkill: After drinking from the mead, Magne throws an axe so hard that he destroys the target.
  • Super Speed: Magne realizes that he can run extraordinarily fast when the police officer remarks that he shouldn't have been able to climb down the mountain that quickly before Isolde died. Magne then times himself running 100 meters: He only needs 7 seconds, faster than the world record.
