History Vikings Season 4B tease

At San Diego Comic-Con on Friday night, the Vikings crew sailed in and wowed everyone as expected. The panel consisted of Travis Fimmel (“Ragnar”), Katheryn Winnick (“Lagertha”), Clive Standen (“Rollo”), Alexander Ludwig (“Bjorn”), Gustaf Skarsgard (“Floki”) and Michael Hirst (writer/creator) – the dream panel, really. There a new trailer was unveiled, and it promises that the second half of Season 4 will be incredible. But do we expect anything else?

Check out the trailer here below.

Vikings 404-0

Vikings
Season 4 Episode 4: “Yol”
Directed by Helen Shaver
Written and created by Michael Hirst
Starring Travis Fimmel, Clive Standen, Katheryn Winnick, Alexander Ludwig, Gustaf Skarsgard, Ben Robson, Maude Hirst, Morgane Polanski, Lothaire Bluteau, Linus Roache, Jennie Jacques, Moe Dunford, Alyssa Sutherland, Amy Bailey

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.

Spoilers 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.

Starring Travis Fimmel, Clive Standen, Katheryn Winnick, Jessalyn Gilsig, George Blagden, and Gustaf Skarsgard
The History Channel
Air Date: Thursday, March 12, 2015, 10:00pm

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.

Vikings Athelstan Collar

Vikings gave us another webisode with everyone’s favorite conflicted priest, “Athelstan’s Journal Stones and Bones Chapter Three: Love” (say that three times fast).

Watch the video here below.

Athelstan (George Blagden): “What is it? What is the measure that will see us transcend this world?”

The Seer (John Kavanagh): “You are not ready.”

Here’s what you missed last week on Vikings 3.2 “The Wanderer”: Spoiler alert! Come on! How scary (and handsome) was Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel) when his longship parted the fog towards the bank, severed heads dangling, his evil grin shining in amusement? I would have gone running too! He reluctantly fought for the crown of Princess Crazy (Amy Bailey) with Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard) skewering her uncle in the first episode of the season, “Mercenary”. They partied in between with Rollo (Clive Standen) freaking out. Those had to be some potent mushrooms or something. That doesn’t help poor Torstein’s arm though.

Vikings Athelstan

The newest webisode in the Vikings series, Athelstan’s Journals: Stones and Bones Chapter 2: Death, Athelstan (George Blagden) once again seeks out the Seer’s (John Kavanagh) words. Even though the predictions are gleaned from the gods that are not his own, he says, “You are a prophet of the gods,” to the Seer. This is the struggle he has had almost from the very beginning, questioning his own faith, as he lives and learns from this very different culture.

Check out the video below.

“How long will the gods test us?” asks Athelstan, “I’ve already given so much.”

Vikings
Season 3 Episode 2: “The Wanderer”
Directed by Ken Girotti
Written and created by Michael Hirst
Starring Travis Fimmel, Clive Standen, Katheryn Winnick, Jessalyn Gilsig, George Blagden, and Gustaf Skarsgard.
The History Channel
Air Date: Thursday, February 26, 2015, 10:00pm

Last week on Vikings 3.1 “Mercenary“, the core Kattegat crew could not leave fast enough for Wessex to get what King Ecbert (Linus Roache) promised, leaving behind sad Aslaug, Siggy, and Helga (Alyssa Sutherland, Jessalyn Gilsig, and Maude Hirst, respectively). Of course he wants more.

Ragnar and company agree to fight for Princess Kwenthrith’s (Amy Bailey) stolen crown of Mercia by her father and brother. Bloody and bloodier it gets with Ragnar showing off his cunning battle strategy. Meanwhile King Ecbert gets his flirt on with Lagertha (Katherine Winnick), Athelstan (George Blagden) providing the translation, as they go to farm the lands. Lagertha left her lands in the hands of possible usurpers, so maybe she shouldn’t stay away too long.

Vikings Athelstan's Journal

Welcome to the next two chapters in the Vikings Season 3 webisode series, Athelstan’s Journal. “Chapter 8: Gods and Men” delves deeper into the devotion of these men to their gods and whether it is a selfish devotion or not. And then there seems to be an entirely new journal, for the just-released video “Stones and Bones Chapter 1: Vows,” where Athelstan seeks out the seer for answers.

Watch the two webisodes here below.

The series explains aspects of viking life through the eyes Athelstan (George Blagden), the slave turned BFF of Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel).
