Is this the end for Ragnar?

Ragnar has suffered a terrible defeat at the hands of his brother, Rollo. But worst than that is how it will impact his standing among the vikings. Count Odo will try to get rid of Rollo. King Ecbert has big dreams for his kingdom. And what is going on between Queen Aslaug and Harbard?

This episode of "Vikings" starts quite slow (and it keeps like that throughout the whole episode) but it does a great job in raising the tension, the stakes of everyone involved and in bringing a couple of surprises into the mix. It still suffers a little bit from all the story lines that are going around, but it does a good job in keeping almost all of them interesting (Harbard's less interesting this time around than when he first appeared). And the show also falls into a couple of cheap tricks to surprise the viewer. But in general this fourth season has kept a good level throughout, offering some action-packed episodes, some more talkative and some others that develop the characters and the story. This is one of those, and it does a great job at it.
