Tonight Vikings returns to the History Channel with a new season of teaching you about Norse politics with fabulous hair and excessive amounts of entertaining violence. If only history class had been this much fun!
Ahead of tonight”s premiere, HitFix Harpy has an exclusive clip of the Vikings celebrating their looting of Paris. But a rousing speech by Bjorn to bolster Ragnar”s leadership – even as the king clings to life – takes a sudden turn to accusations. By the end of the speech, the clan is one thrown chair away from a lynch mob.
From the official press release:
Entry to Valhalla eludes Ragnar but as he lies in his sick bed in Kattegat events unfold beyond his control. Bjorn orders the arrest of Floki for Athelstan”s murder while in Paris, Rollo betrays the last of his Viking supporters to strengthen his position in the French Court. Meanwhile, in Hedeby, Kalf announces joint Earldom with Lagertha, but is power-sharing Kalf”s true intention and is Lagertha actually willing to share what once was hers?
Vikings airs on The History Channel Thursdays at 10/9c.
