Last time on Vikings, Ivar (Alex Høgh Andersen) challenged Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick), who refused to fight him. The Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig) expedition hit pay dirt in the form of Musselmen. They pillaged and took home riches, women, and glory. Rollo (Clive Standen) had a ton of fun. Helga (Maude Hirst) took a replacement daughter. Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard) was having a crisis of faith – fundamentalist Floki! The sons of Ragnar were visited by Odin to tell them the news of his death. They all have vengeance in their hearts.

Spoilers below for the last 2 episodes of Vikings:

Ragnar told Ivar (Travis Fimmel, Alex Høgh Andersen) he was destined to become greater than everyone, and to use his gifts to ascend to that greatness. He also commanded him in a whisper to seek revenge not on Aelle (Ivan Kaye), but Ecbert (Linus Roache). Ivar and Athelstan’s son formed a connection akin to the beginning of Ragnar and Athelstan’s bond. Ecbert is really upset at the thought of handing him over. On the journey, a blind man (who turned into the Seer-John Kavanagh) said he could “see” Ragnar. Aelle tortured Ragnar to get him to ask for absolution. He refused. He thought about his life, his loves. As he was about to be lowered into a pit of snakes, he made a speech about the glories of Valhalla, and then dropped. Ragnar Lothbrok was dead.

Last time on Vikings, Ragnar scrounged up men for his journey to Wessex, paying them with his death riches. There was a sacrificial feast in honor of Bjorn’s journey to the Mediterranean. Lagertha was quite hostile towards Aslaug, who was in a daze. Aslaug tried to keep Ivar from going with Ragnar, but there was no dissuading him. He needed to finally feel like a man. The episode ended with Ivar drowning, as in Aslaug’s vision.

Last time on Vikings, “The Outsider” was both Ragnar and Ivar (Travis Fimmel, Alex Høgh Andersen), as they share a deep loneliness… Ragnar, for his self-imposed exile and pretty much always marching to his own crazy beat, and Ivar, for being alive and cripple in a viking society. Ivar spent much of the episode trying to prove himself to his brothers in every way. Ragnar went to Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard) and their reunion was full of love and tears. Ragnar went to Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) and their reunion was tender. Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig) intended to go to the Mediterranean with Floki to seek his fame and fortune. After a long delay, Ragnar wanted to go to Wessex and invade, inviting Ivar to go with him.

Last time on Vikings, the final battle between Frankia and the Vikings, brother against brother, Rollo (Clive Standen) against Ragnar (Travis Fimmel), ended in utter defeat for Ragnar, and praise and accolades for Rollo. An epilogue of sorts showed Ragnar gone for many, many years and his little boys grown up, hating him except for Ivar (Alex Høgh Andersen).

Olympus Athens   |  

Vikings Ivar the Boneless Alex Andersen

A new leader is poised to reign in Kattegat on History Channel’s Vikings. One of the most famous vikings in history, Ivar the Boneless, born as a cripple to Ragnar Lothbrok and Aslaug (Travis Fimmel, Alyssa Sutherland), he developed his wits and became a fearsome strategist and leader, conquering much of England.

I had the honor of interviewing Alex Andersen, the young man poised to take the lead as Ivar of this fantastic show. We chatted about his audition, the relationship between Ivar and Ragnar, and his “brothers.”

Check out the interview below.

‘Vikings’ Ivar the Boneless – A Closer Look
Olympus Athens   |  

Vikings Ivar the Boneless

We do not know young Ivar the Boneless (Alex Høgh Andersen) very well yet. It was not until the jump in time during episode 4.10 “The Last Ship, that we meet him as an adult, with his wit and fierce loyalty to the father his brothers are ready to swear off or even kill (except maybe Bjorn – Alexander Ludwig). The child we saw in earlier seasons was the cause of actions and reactions – Ragnar (Travis Fimmel) almost killed him as a baby, Harbard (Kevin Durand) took away his pain, Aslaug (Alyssa Sutherland) gave him to Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard) to mentor, he killed a boy during play.

Check out the video below.
