Because the anime is an original work and not based on any preexisting series, it is impossible to predict where the plot of Thorfinn will go next. Although historical events occasionally inspire the show’s writers, they are generally free to explore any avenue they see fit.

What To Expect From Vinland Saga Season 2 Episode 2?
Despite primarily focusing on Einar, the second season’s premiere offered hints about Thorfinn’s new life. Since Einar is the show’s second main protagonist, he will likely play an essential part in the action.
It is possible that Einar and Throfinn will initially disagree and clash over specific issues but that they will grow to tolerate one another and maybe even come to appreciate one another.
As the Slave Arc progresses, things will get worse for the protagonist. It is hoped that Thorfinn will gain insight into his father’s message on this journey.
Season 2 Episode 1 Recap: The Vinland Saga
A farmer, Einar works with his mother and sister, Lotta. Their village is attacked one day, and the family must make a daring escape. However, Einar and Lotta’s mother takes an arrow to the chest. Upon their mother’s death, one of the men attempts to kidnap Lotta.
After Lotta stabs the man in self-defense, he kills her with a slash. When Einar resists, the men kidnap him and make him a slave. To be sold as slaves, Einar and the others are captured. There’s a point where Einar bolts and makes his getaway. The man tries to break into a farm and steal some food.
However, Einar’s captor tracks him down and rescues him. They beat up Einar as an example of what will happen if the slaves try to escape. Since he has nowhere to go even if he tried to escape, Einar begins to think about his life.
A vendor brings a man to Einar, convinced that he is the one the buyer has been looking for. The buyer reiterates that he is seeking a small, blonde man named Thorfinn. He claims he isn’t trying to buy a worker but rather rescue a family member.
One moment Einar is working on one farmer’s farm, and the next, he’s being sold to another. Einar’s return to the farm brings back fond memories of his childhood. Through a series of fortunate events, he also meets Thorfinn.
