Also, let me post the Season 4 catch up for Lagertha. It hasn’t been posted on YouTube yet so I didn’t see it until now.
Vikings recap: ‘The Outsider’
Ragnar returns and no one’s happy
EW – Season 4, Ep. 11 | Aired Nov 30
See Ragnar Lothbrok, the great King and the wandering ghost. Once he was a young Earl, and he sat on the shores of Kattegat, and spoke words of sorrow to his dead daughter. Now he is an old man — old in experience, old in beard length, old in the measure of friends still alive against friends long dead — and he stands on the water’s edge.
What awaits him, this revenant soul, returned now after long years spent away? His sons do not kill him; that counts as a blessing, I suppose. “I came back because I wanted to see what has become of my sons,” he tells them, the fruit of his loins. One thing that has happened: “It would appear you have another son.” Across the sea in Wessex, there is a boy named Magnus, the product of a coupling with Queen Kwenthrith. Magnus is in Wessex, and surely Ragnar’s destiny lies there, also.
IGN – The second half of Vikings: Season 4 premieres November 30th at 9/8c on History and IGN’s got your first look at six new character-focused promos for the upcoming mayhem and madness.
In the two videos below, you’ll see all six teasers (split up into batches of three) featuring an aging and humbled Ragnar (Travis Fimmel), a changed Floki (Gustaf Skarsgård), a conflicted Rollo (Clive Standen), and a big power struggle between Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) and Aslaug (Alyssa Sutherland).
VARIETY – History released a new trailer for the second half of “Vikings” season four Friday at Comic Con. The trailer shows the aftermath of Ragnar Lothbrok’s (Travis Fimmel) return.
The beginning of season four featured a chronological leap forward, setting up Ragnar’s return to his family with his sons having grown to be young men. The first half of season four featured Ragnar and his Viking warriors suffering defeat at the hands of King Rollo and his Frankish forces, and Ragnar exiling himself from Kattegat and leaving his sons to grow up with out him.
“In my mind this was always a show about Ragnaar Lothbrok and his sons,” series creator and executive producer Michael Hirst said. He added, “The jump forward in time gave him the opportunity to lick his wounds and his sons to become men.”
Hirst also offered hints about future story that may appear in the second half of season four and in season five.
“If I was a fan of the show instead of the writer, the thing that I would really want to see is another meeting between King Ecbert and Ragnar,” said Wright.
He also teased a possible reunion for Ragnar and Lagertha.
