Press: Midseason Finale Recap and Review

January 28, 2018

 

TV WEB – The Vikings grand spectacle event is finally here, with the mid-season finale, Moments of Vision! With Ragnar Lothbrok gone the allegiances between his sons have broken apart and they come to meet on the battlefield for what could be the last time for some of them. Coming from a show where their enemies have often been foreigners from overseas who were seeking revenge for the Vikings attacking their lands, this time the fight has come home. The characters on Vikings have always had a strong bond of family and when Rollo (Clive Standen) left to join the French it really pained me to see him go against Ragnar and all those that he used to consider his countrymen. Now it’s gone one step further to where it seems blood and loyalty have been replaced by power and vengeance.

 

This time around Showrunner Michael Hirst decided to do things a little bit differently. Instead of doing a linear story of everyone preparing to do battle he opted more to mix it up with a lot of flashbacks and time jumps to the actual battle itself. He focused more on the struggle for each individual character and how what’s going into this battle meant for them. Considering we just got the standard way of shooting a scene between two armies a couple of episodes ago it was refreshing to see a different more artistic style for this one. The initial sweeping shots showing the large gathering of warriors on both sides set to the voices of brothers Halfdan (Jasper Paakkonen) and King Harald (Peter Franzen) singing a traditional song across the field.

4.12 “The Vision” Recaps

December 14, 2016

 

Vikings recap: ‘The Vision’

Ragnar sets sail for Wessex

 

EW – Season 4, Ep. 12 | Aired Dec 07

 

Ragnar’s story began with England, or a dream of England: That land across the water, a single ship carrying Ragnar and a group of young men to glory in the land of the Christ-God. Now, to England will Ragnar return. “I’m looking for brave warriors,” he announces in the town square. “Like you! Like you!” The response is muted. A man tells Ragnar his brother’s family went to England to found the Viking colony. “We never did find out what happened to them,” the man says. “But it seems you knew all along, and didn’t tell us.” He spits on King Ragnar the once-great, who once sailed with ships beyond number.

 

Now, Ragnar must beg his son Bjorn for ships. Bjorn will grant them — but he has his own plans. He will travel down the coast to Frankia, where it is said his Uncle Rollo has a new kingdom on the coast. Bjorn’s plan, bold and perhaps mad: He will send messengers to Rollo. Can family bonds, once broken, be fixed?

 

The sons of Ragnar are bonded yet with their mother. Aslaug wants them to settle down: “You should already be married,” she tells her three older sons. “You don’t have to love the woman,” she explains. “You need one to breed with.” Did Aslaug ever love Ragnar? Her sons have their own legends about their parents. One son says Aslaug bewitched their father; another recalls the wanderer Harbard, who Aslaug so loved, who so betrayed her trust. “She has always loved me,” says Ivar. Sigurd disagrees. “She feels pity for you,” he says. “We all feel pity for you. But sometimes, we wish that she’d left you to the wolves.” Ivar tries to attack him, slithering across the floor like a snake.
