Vikings (S04E19) “On The Eve”

It is no secret that Vikings is struggling greatly in the wake of Ragnar’s death. This show is a shadow of it’s former self without Travis Fimmel at the helm. It has to said once more that killing Ragnar off so soon was the wrong decision. His sons pale in comparison and are so uninteresting…

Vikings (S04E17) “The Great Army”

To start off, the hole that Ragnar has left is gaping. This has never been more apparent than in this episode. Travis Fimmel was incomparable in his portrayal of Ragnar Lothbrok and it is impossible for especially his younger sons to take his place and fill this huge void that has been created. This all…

Vikings (S04E14) “In the Uncertain Hour Before the Morning”

Ragnar’s death has been looming for quite some time and in this episode we are forced to acknowledge that his death is inevitable even if we cannot fathom the show continuing without him.

Vikings (S04E13) “Two Journeys”

After last week’s cliffhanger we find that Ragnar and Ivar survived the sinking ships, while the same can’t be said for the majority of the men who followed Ragnar. While one may expect Ragnar to be despondent suffering such a huge loss, he remains stoic and focused on returning to face King Ecbert. Ivar on…

Vikings S04E12 “The Vision”

This episode begins with Ragnar looking like a Beggar King, trying to convince his people to sail with him to England. The response as to be expected is underwhelming and results in one farmer spitting in his face. This scene is a firm reminder that Ragnar, the Viking warrior, is a far cry from the…

Vikings (S04E11)) “The Outsider”

Who wants to be king? Well apparently, no one. Vikings started off where it ended with Ragnar returning to Kattegat after more than a decade. His young sons are now all men and they are very displeased with their father. Bjorn more so than anyone else, which is to be expected as he is the…

Vikings: (S04E07) “The Profit & the Loss”

What could have gone wrong? EVERYTHING! Not only did Ragnar not see anything coming he saw extra things as he was kind of high in Chinese medicine. The funny part is it’s Chinese! It shouldn’t work well 😂 And you have to give it to the writers, last time we saw Rollo turn sides to…
