The Seeress' Prophecy
Ancient, mythological tale about the creation of the world, it's demise and rebirth. The Seeress Volven speaks to both gods and men to tell them how the world will end if they continue their evil, immoral deeds.

Yes, We Love This Country is the sixth episode of the first season of Ragnarok, the season finale, and the sixth episode of the series overall.

Synopsis[]

While attempting to expose the truth, Magne gets another shock. Hope seems lost, but have the Jutuls underestimated their foe — and the power of good?

Plot[]

Magne is diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic (sic) by the psychiatrist and is prescribed anti-psychotic drugs, which he refuses to take. Fjor still displays feelings for Gry and tries to help her family with money. He also informs Magne that he was correct about the toxic barrels from Jutul Industries, and reveals that they are going to be shipped away from Edda. The Jutuls tell Fjor to kill Gry; Saxa threatens to kill her herself if he does not. Magne dumps some toxic barrels on the police station steps and they begin an investigation in spite of Vidar's attempts to intimidate the police chief. Fjor takes Gry to an abandoned warehouse and starts to attack her, but Magne intervenes and saves her life. Vidar appears, identifies Magne as Thor and attacks him. Before he does, Magne warns Fjor and Gry to run. Magne is almost overcome by Vidar but he calls up lightning and, directing a bolt from the sky, uses it to strike Vidar, presumably killing him. Magne is hurt by the lightning as well, but it appears that he survived the strike.

Trivia[]

  • Magne demonstrating that he, like Thor, is not mere Dumb Muscle. Figuring out that Jutul is moving their barrels of toxic waste, he steals several of the containers and puts them right on the doorstep of the police station, handing the cops unequivocal and unignorable evidence of Jutul's shady practices.
  • Laurits (evidently with Erik's collusion) roasting Ran Jutul at the Constituional Day speech. Laurits shows up with hair dyed platinum blonde just like Ran's, is wearing the "traditional" female dress and cap just like Ran, and gives a speech completely trashing, in a humorous way, JUTUL's business practices. She just has to sit and smile and pretend to take it in good humor while she's obviously internally fuming, and the townsfolk all think it's really funny. Arguably, Laurits strikes a bigger blow against Jutul than Magne managed to, the following fight included.
  • Magne fully embracing the power of Thor, first to deliver a Curb-Stomp Battle to Fjor, then when Vidar starts curb-stomping him, calling down the lightning to blast them both back in what seems like a Mutual Kill. But at the very end of the episode, we see Magne's fist clench, and Wenche's narration states that Ragnarok is not the end. . . it is the start. Promising that this story isn't over yet.
  • Fun Fact: When Vidar talks to William on the phone about the 2500 steel barrels, he speaks English. If you change your audio track to German, English, Italian or Norwegian, he speaks English in this scene as well, but in the French version, Vidar speaks French with William.

Tropes[]

  • Apologetic Attacker: Fjor apologizes to Gry before he tries to kill her.
  • Cliffhanger: The episode ends with Magne knocking out Vidar and himself with a lightning blast. One of the last shots is Magne's fingers moving slightly, showing that he is still alive. Vidar's fate however remains open.
  • Comfort Food: Turid eats masses of chocolate after Magne is expelled from school for the rest of the school year.
  • Copycat Mockery: Laurits has dressed up as Ran for the Constitution Day event and gives a speech imitating her accent. He even has bleached his hair light blond.
  • Dictionary Opening: The episode starts with a dictionary entry about "The Seeress' Prophecy".
  • Hannibal Lecture: During their fight, Vidar talks down to Magne and muses that he isn't Thor after all.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Fjor tells Magne where Vidar has brought the barrels. He also at first refuses to kill Gry, and when Magne fights off Vidar, Fjor gets Gry to safety.
  • It Was Here, I Swear!: After finding the thousands of barrels in the cave in the glacier, Magne retrieves the police but when they arrive at the scene Vidar already has moved the barrels and the storeroom is empty.
  • No-Sell: In the climax, Magne repeatedly punches Vidar in the face with absolutely no effect.
  • She Knows Too Much: Fjor's family orders him to kill Gry because she has seen their old photos.
  • Shock and Awe: Magne finally knocks out Vidar by summoning a lightning blast on top of him.
  • Title Drop: "Yes, we love this country" is the name (and the first line) of the Norwegian national anthem, which is sung at the Constitution Day event.
