4.19 On The Eve & 4.20 The Reckoning
On The Eve and The Reckoning finish out this rocky season’s primary storylines, and it’s a fair mixture of good and not-so-great. That’s unfortunate because this season gives us a hint of how the show will do without Ragnar in the ascendant… or even on screen. There is more than a little reason to suspect that the move from what was essentially one man’s story to a narrative with no clear protagonist will be a struggle for Hirst to manage for the longer haul.
And this is essentially where most of the weaknesses that »

Disclaimer: Spoiler Alert!
Wow. At first I was slow to get into this show, but now I am on-board more than ever. In fact, this show may actually one-up Game of Thrones in the ability to take a major character death and develop it into an even greater story. This epic started with the farm boy Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel), and followed his kingly career path all the way to his death in season 4. Think about this for a second; he dies in season 4, not in season 1 like Eddard Stark did in Game of Thrones, and Vikings has gotten better each episode this late in the "game". We had even more deaths in this episode of Vikings, and I will start with the most shocking.
Once Helga entered the hall with her "adoptive daughter" (read prisoner), I had suspicions that something tragic was about to happen. Oh and it did in the worst way. »

Spoilers for those who haven’t seen Wednesday night’s Season 4 finale of “Vikings.”
The sons of Ragnar, different and yet all so like their father, have been united by a single purpose these last few episodes of Season 4: to avenge their father’s death at the hands of King Aelle and, by proxy, King Ecbert (Linus Roache). But they all seem to have different ideas about what to do next — settle down in East Anglia, go back to raiding, sail to yet further shores. And it’s all complicated by Ivar (Alex Høgh) throwing an axe into his brother Sigurd (David Lindström), bringing the finale’s main character body count up to three. “Vikings” creator Michael Hirst called up Variety to talk about what’s next.
Will anything happen to Ivar? One would think kinslaying would be a pretty serious deal.
Ivar’s in a special position, he always has been. I »

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from Wednesday's season four finale of Vikings, "The Reckoning."]
It certainly seemed like a passing of the baton during Wednesday’s fourth season finale of History’s Vikings. Following Ragnar’s (Travis Fimmel) death several episodes ago, his sons continued their mission of revenge in Wessex by coming for King Ecbert (Linus Roache) and his people. In the end, they didn’t have to look hard, as Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig), Ivar (Alex Hogh) and the rest of the crew found Ecbert camped out in his deserted castle, ready for his fate.
Ecbert’s plan to trade the Vikings' (illegal) land and »
