Vikings Scarred 304 02

The History Channel announced today that a spinoff of their very popular show Vikings, called Valhalla is set to hit the air in Summer of 2016!

“This is an opportunity to bring back all of those characters we loved and lost in a believable way,” show creator Michael Hirst told GoD. “Our viewers have been really upset with us as of late, and that, coupled with the curiosity of just what Valhalla is, is what pushed us to create this show.”

‘Vikings’ Farewell: George Blagden Talks Athelstan’s Journey (Interview)

Vikings Born Again-01

Geeks Of Doom interviews Vikings actor George Blagden, who plays the priest Athelstan, about his character’s journey and fate after Thursday’s Episode 3.6 “Born Again.”

SPOILERS for Vikings if you haven’t seen Episode 3.6 “Born Again,” which aired on Thursday, March 26th, 2015 on The History Channel.

Athelstan is gone. Without giving us time to mourn Siggy, Vikings killed off our beloved priest, depriving us of one of our two central characters. At times, I forgot the show was about Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel), and by the time Episode 3.6 “Born Again” aired, I had come to think that Athelstan was the main protagonist, as he affected most of the storylines. Even when Ragnar was carrying him for burial, I kept hoping it was a mistake, or maybe he would pull a Lazarus.

George Blagden, who played Athelstan, gave GoD (appropriate) and other media sites a Q&A treat yesterday, March 27, 2015. The running theme of “email [Vikings showrunner Michael Hirst] … please, tell him” was pervasive throughout the interview.

On Blagden’s and Athelstan’s future — flashbacks, visions, perhaps as his son Alfred, the actor is open to it all. Check out what Blagden had to say during the interview here below, and be sure to check out the images and videos embedded, too.

Vikings Season 3 promo

Vikings
Season 3 Episode 6: “Born Again”
Directed by Helen Shaver
Written and created by Michael Hirst
Starring Travis Fimmel, Clive Standen, Katheryn Winnick, George Blagden, Alexander Ludwig, and Gustaf Skarsgard.
The History Channel
Air Date: Thursday, March 26th, 2015, 10:00pm

Spoilers, spoilers, spoilers, spoilers, spoilers!

Last week on Vikings 3.5 “The Usurper,” the warriors returned to Kattegat after a “successful” battle for Mercia. The discovery of Siggy’s death was too much for Rollo (Clive Standen), who was eaten with regret and grief. He’s back to self-destruction. Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) confronts Kalf (Ben Robson), with no results. Even Ragnar (Travis Fimmel) doesn’t help her. Aethelwulf (Moe Dunford) destroys the viking village in Wessex, slaughtering even the children. And King Ecbert (Linus Roache) was the puppetmaster the entire time. Ragnar… he told you he was corrupt. You should have listened.

‘Vikings’ Midseason Trailer and Speak Like A Viking! (Video)

Vikings Charging Shore Ragnar Rollo Lagertha

Lots of Viking videos today, my friends! We have just passed the halfway point into this delicious season, and my god… how else will they shock and entertain us? A god had walked among them, we lost a major character, mass slaughter, sex, sex, and more sex, and tons of betrayal. Just a beautiful day in the neighborhoods of Kattegat and Wessex, right?

The midseason trailer does a quick flash of images before focusing on the upcoming atack on Paris, which is next on Ragnar’s (Travis Fimmel) to-do list. And oh no she didn’t! Queen Aslaug (Alyssa Sutherland) better not have said, “Kill the priest.” Does she not know, given the choice, Ragnar would choose Athelstan (George Blagden) every time?

Continue below for the midseason trailer as well as a handful of other videos.

‘Vikings’ Webisode Athelstan’s Journal: The Choice (Video)

Vikings Athelstan 01

I’m starting to think that all this reflection and journaling is not doing Athelstan (George Blagden) a bit of good. Did you see what happened as a result of his giving into temptation with Judith (Jennie Jacques)? Ok, to be fair in Vikings 3.5 “The Usurper,” we found out that the slaughter of the viking settlement was part of an elaborate King Ecbert (Linus Roache) plan. But I do think that Aethlwulf (Moe Dunford) relished it all the more because his wife is now carrying the priest’s bastard.

In Athelstan’s Journal: Stones and Bones Chapter 5: The Choice, he talks to the Seer (John Kavanagh) of truth.

See that video, the “Power and Ambition” video, and the Vikings 3.5 “The Usurper” recap video below.

Vikings Athelstan Ecbert

Athelstan: “Can any man ever be truly free?”
The Seer: “There is freedom in death.”

Another new webisode in the Vikings series, titled Athelstan’s Journal: Harvest, has been released.

The harvest the Seer (John Kavanagh) speaks of is the one we reap from the life we sow. It looks like Athelstan (George Blagden) should have kept his pants on with Judith (Jennie Jacques). She reveals to her husband Aethelwulf (Moe Dunford) that she is with child. His reaction? You see him strike down the viking settlers in a fit of rage -women, children, everyone. I wonder how King Ecbert (Linus Roache) will react to that considering how hard he was crushing on Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick)?

Check out the webisode and bonus video “Roll like Rollo” below.

There are serious spoilers here! If you have not watched Vikings Episode 3.3 “Warrior’s Fate” or Episode 3.4 “Scarred,” what are you waiting for?

Last week on Vikings, our favorite barbarians went after Princess Kwenthrith’s (Amy Bailey) brother’s half of the troops, after they fled from scary Ragnar (Travis Fimmel). Torstein (Jefferson Hall), got to die with honor as the sacrifice, thanks to Rollo (Clive Standen) dragging him up a mountain. He was the bravest facing those soldiers. “I will go first.” Such are the harsh realities of battle.
