Vikings
Season 4 Episode 8: “Portage”
Directed by Ken Girotti
Written and created by Michael Hirst
Starring Travis Fimmel, Clive Standen, Katheryn Winnick, Alexander Ludwig, Gustaf Skarsgard, Maude Hirst, Morgane Polanski, Lothaire Bluteau, Linus Roache, Jennie Jacques, Moe Dunford, Alyssa Sutherland, Amy Bailey
The History Channel
Air Date: Thursday, April 7th, 2016, 10:00pm

Last week on Vikings, Harbard (guest star Kevin Durand) was generous with the love of the women of Kattegat. The Vikings were defeated at Paris. Ragnar (Travis Fimmel) realized how Rollo (Clive Standen) betrayed him. He screamed to Rollo, “This is how you repay my love!” I felt that. I think Gisla (Morgane Polanski) also felt the feelings Rollo still has for Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick). Rollo anticipated their every move and Helga (Maude Hirst) almost died. Ragnar did save Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard) from drowning though. Ecbert (Linus Roache) went to Mercia to talk with Prince Wigstan, who basically handed it over.

Vikings
Season 4 Episode 4: “Yol”
Directed by Helen Shaver

Air Date: Thursday, March 10th, 2016, 10:00pm

Last week on Vikings, both Ragnar and King Ecbert (Travis Fimmel and Linus Roache) were visited by the spirit of Athelstan (Guest star George Blagden). Ecbert took it to mean that his beloved Athelstan was dead, and he told Judith (Jennie Jacques) so. Ragnar’s vison said “Mercy” three times. Because of this, Ragnar let Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard) go for Helga’s (Maude Hirst) sake. Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig) fights a bear in the wilderness. Meanwhile Erlendur and Kalf (Edvin Endre and Ben Robson) plot Bjorn’s death using a crazy Berserker, pretty much in the same moment Kalf declares his love for Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick). Gisla humiliates Rollo (Morgane Polanski and Clive Standen) once more.

Last week on Vikings, Aethelwulf (Moe Dunford) led a mission to stamp down the Mercia rebellion and rescue Queen Kwenthrith (Amy Bailey). King Ecbert (Linus Roache) really didn’t care about her. He just wanted her boy, Magnus (Lothbrok?), saved. While husband’s away, the cat Judith (Jennie Jacques) will play… artist by defying gender bias (with Ecbert’s help), and study art with Athelstan’s doppelganger. Ecbert made her so happy. Rollo mimed war strategy with Count Odo (Owen Roe). Count Odo is secretly plotting against the Emperor and Princess (Lothaire Bluteau and Morgane Polanski). His confidante mistress is secretly plotting with someone else against Count Odo. Rollo (Clive Standen) is so out of his league. He tries a makeover to please Princess Gisla who laughs at him. Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard) escapes and the kids find him. He is strung up with water torture. Bjorn tries to survive in the snowy wilderness. Ragnar pities Helga (Travis Fimmel and Maude Hirst), and helps her bury her child.

Many spoilers below!!!

Air Date: Thursday, February 25th, 2015, 10:00pm

Last week on Vikings, Ragnar (Travis Fimmel) finally awoke to a Kattegat full of Parisian riches, and Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard) tied to a stump in the cold for the murder of Athelstan. Kalf (Ben Robson) named he and Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) co-rulers, but Einar (and some others) are pissed. Kalf makes an example of him, and Lagertha castrates him. Rollo and Princess Gisla (Clive Standen and Morgane Polanski) marry, and he is a gentleman on the wedding night. He is less than a gentleman when he brings an army to slaughter all the vikings camped outside of Paris. Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig) leaves for the wilderness to prove to his father that he can survive. The Seer (John Kavanagh) tells Aslaug (Alyssa Sutherland) that a woman will one day rule Kattegat.

Vikings Supertease Header

Vikings has given us another glimpse at the increased 20-episode season 4. I think I look forward to these little tidbits as much as the actual new episodes. Last week’s premiere found Floki (Gustaf Skarsgård) tied up, Ragnar (Travis Fimmel) awake, Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig) leaving for the wilderness, Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) is now an equal earl with Kalf (Ben Robson), and Rollo (Clive Standen) getting married. And that’s just one episode!

What can we expect from the next 19?

Vikings 414-01

Vikings
Season 4 Episode 1: “A Good Treason”
Directed by Ciaran Donnelly

Starring Travis Fimmel, Clive Standen, Katheryn Winnick, Alexander Ludwig, Gustaf Skarsgard, Ben Robson, Maude Hirst, Morgane Polanski, Lothaire Bluteau
The History Channel
Air Date: Thursday, February 18th, 2015, 10:00pm

The last season of Vikings was short and sweet, with lots of heartbreaking death, fierce and gory battles, and religious mixed with political moves. Two fan faves, Athelstan and Siggy (George Blagden and Jessalyn Gilsig) died – Siggy, while saving Ragnar’s children from drowning, and Athelstan, murdered by Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard). Porunn (Gaia Weiss) becomes a shieldmaiden, marries Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig), has a baby, gets severely scarred and then wants to be away from Bjorn. The Vikings attacks Paris, and have a surprising victory at the end, although Ragnar is severely injured. they leave Rollo there, who is offered Princess Gisla (Morgane Polanski) and riches if he joins Frankia. He does.

Spoilers ahead! Beware!

‘Vikings’ Interview With Maude Hirst

Vikings Season 4 Cast Photo

Maude Hirst’s Helga certainly doesn’t have it easy on The History Channel’s hit show, Vikings. She’s married to the quirkiest viking of all, Floki (Gustaf Skarsgård), whose idealistic theology spurred him to kill Ragnar’s beloved friend Athelstan (George Blagden). They had a cute little family thing going in Kattegat; Ragnar (Travis Fimmel) trusted Floki, especially after double-crossing King Horik (Donal Logue) for him in season 2. But when Ragnar kept turning to Athelstan, and the priest was born again, Floki could not take it. He felt it was being disloyal to the real gods in Valhalla.

Geeks of Doom got invited to participate in a roundtable telephone interview, where Hirst provided insight to her character and her relationship with her off-the-rails hubby.

Check out the interview with Maude Hirst below.

Vikings 308-02

Bjorn Ironside (Alexander Ludwig) on Vikings has not had a ton of experience with women. Not like his dad, Ragnar (Travis Fimmel) or uncle Rollo (Clive Standen). But this heir to the kingdom certainly has proven his romantic skills when wooing his wife Porunn (Gaia Weiss). And now that she wants him to be free because of a silly scar, he will soon be romancing around town (Kattegat). The History Channel has released some Bjorn-isms for Valentines Day.

Check out Bjorn lines in the video below.
