The Vikings Season 4 trailer debuted at San Diego Comic-Con today and I am psyched! The History Channel saga recounts the fictionalized life of real life Viking, Ragnar Lothbrok. Our Ragnar, played by Travis Fimmel, has had quite a ride the last 3 seasons. Last season, he lost his best friend Athelstan (George Blagden), and it looked like he toyed with the killer Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard). However…
Watch the trailer, plus a special “Bring the Pain” video below.
This trailer packs an episodic punch into 1 1/2 minutes. My Athelstan narrates part of it. And Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig) steps up as eldest son and “orders the arrest of Floki for the murder of Athelstan. Yes!!!!!
Aslaug (Alyssa Sutherland) asks The Seer (John Kavanagh) if a woman will rule Kattegat. Watch for his answer.
It also looks like that brother against brother dance that Rollo (Clive Standen) and Ragnar have done for years, but be full on war, based on this trailer.
What do you think?
The “Bring the Pain” video maims and kills everybody in one minute, and really makes you realize just how violent this show is. First, “There were a lot of ways to get hurt on Vikings.” One example? Porunn’s (Gaia Weiss) face getting slashed. Then it shows you that “there were even more ways to die.” One example? Floki murdering Athelstan.
I love it!
Be sure to keep it here at Geeks Of Doom all week for our on-site coverage of SDCC 2015.

VIKINGS follows the adventures of Ragnar Lothbrok, an actual historical figure, and the greatest hero of his age. The series tells the gripping sagas of Ragnar’s band of Viking brothers and his family, as he rises to become King of the Viking tribes. As well as being a fearless warrior, Ragnar embodies the Norse traditions of devotion to the gods – legend has it that he was a direct descendent of Odin, the god of war and warriors.
