FB: And so begins the battle of gold, silver, and brawns.

Back in the day, the Silver Centurion killed Brunhilde, and if Frigg is not her generation’s equivalent to Brunhilde at this point, she is well on her way. I know none of you thought there was any chance whatsoever of Frigg dying at his hands, but the symmetry still lends this battle some weight. Ardaic must’ve been incredibly powerful at his peak, because we’ve established that he’s not at his peak, and yet he’s still going toe to toe with a woman who’s killed her own personal god.

I like how their movements are contrasted here, with Ardaic patient and uncaring and Frigg just swinging and jumping. Bad order vs. good chaos. I don’t think it firmly lines up with Ardaic’s fighting style elsewhere, but it still works.
