Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!
Tonight, after over seven months away, Vikings finally returns to History for the ten-episode second half of the show’s fourth season. When we last left off, Ragnar joined forces with some other Vikings and led his ships to raid Frankia. However, his brother Rollo was ready and waiting with his own army and a secret plan. A massive, bloody battle broke out on a floating barge. While the sickly, badly-beaten Ragnar was eager to fight his brother to the death, his men carried him back to the ship in retreat. Duke Rollo returned to Paris a hero, where Emperor Charles crowned him Caesar. The show then jumped several years into the future, where Bjorn and Queen Aslaug are ruling Kattegat. Ragnar, who is technically still king, returns after disappearing for years, demanding that one of his sons fight him to the death, but they all refuse.
I’m really curious to see how the time jump effects the story in this second half of the season. Ragnar’s sons are now much older, more mature, and ready to join the fight. Who will be king? Can Ragnar finally get over his embarrassment and once again lead his people, or will one of his sons rise to challenge him? And will he set his sights on bringing down the brother who betrayed him and the rest of their people? Also, how has Rollo’s new position and family changed him over these past few years?
On tonight’s midseason premiere, “The Outsider,” Ragnar returns to Kattegat and formulates a plan to head back to Wessex, where he intends to right past wrongs.
Check out Ragnar’s plans tonight on History Channel at 9/8c. (And if you’re interested, there’s a 1-hour recap special at 8/7c before the episode airs.)
