There are strange people in Kattegat always, riding in from lands far away or sailing in from points further. Yet one man in particular catches Torvi’s eye, as she patrols her fortress-city. He sailed in this morning with the other traders. He looks at the wares being peddled – but he and his men do not want to buy anything. The reason is clear enough: The man calls for an attack, and the battle for Kattegat begins.
The Great Army assembles in Kattegat, kings and earls and heroes and monsters. A great sacrifice must be made, says Lagertha, the heroic Queen. “If the army fails,” she says, “if they are defeated by the Saxons, our peoples might never recover.” The gods call for a special sacrifice at times like this. The question is not what, but who?
EW – This week’s episode of Vikings is titled “Revenge,” and with good reason. The sons of Ragnar Lothbrok have quite a bit of vengeance to seek as they prepare to set off for England. Their father lies in Northumbria, buried under ground (and quite a few poisonous snakes). Young warriors in Viking society are naturally ambitious; when the motivation is retribution for the death of their hero father, the ambitions go cosmic.
But who will lead the massive army that is gathering in Kattegat? In this exclusive clip from the new episode of History’s epic drama, eldest child Bjorn Ironside lectures his half-brothers on leadership. Ubbe, Hvitserk, and Sigurd listen thoughtfully; cruel Ivar seems to have murder in his eyes. Watch the clip here, and check out Vikings on History tonight at 10 p.m. And be sure to come back here after the episode for our recap and weekly conversation with Vikings creator Michael Hirst.
HELLO MAGAZINE – Josh Donaldson, one of the biggest names on the Toronto Blue Jays, is set to make his acting debut on Vikings. The show, which airs on HISTORY tells the story of Norse and Viking culture in the 13th century.
The third basemen will guest star in an upcoming episode (airing Jan. 18) as a Viking warrior named Hoskuld. A sneak peek of the episode dubbed Revenge was shared to social media on Thursday.
Words travel slowly from the lonely ground in Northumbria, where the great, legendary, cursed Ragnar Lothbrok lies buried beneath earth and snakes and ambition. In Kattegat, his first wife Lagertha cannot believe he is dead. But her responsibility is clear. She must pick up the burden of rule, no matter the cost. “Ragnar hated it,” she tells her lover Astrid. “It weighed him down, perhaps it even killed him.” But she cannot disappoint her women: Not Astrid, not Torvi, not the shieldmaidens who fought and died for her. And she thinks Ragnar is watching her.
In Wessex, Ecbert mourns his friend, while his son Aethelwulf fears the worst. Ecbert had an agreement with Ragnar, a promise the Viking’s sons would seek vengeance only against Aelle. “Ragnar and I were alike in many ways,” says Ecbert, suddenly looking like an old man, or like a man who has begun to outlive his own time. He agrees Aethelwulf should raise an army; he will stay right where he is, at the seat of his power, teaching young Alfred the ways of this cruel world.
Lagertha assumes her own seat of power, sitting in the high throne at the center of Kattegat. She sat up there once before, next to Ragnar — and, briefly, next to Aslaug, Ragnar’s second wife. Lagertha, in charge, has some new ideas. Kattegat has become large, “the largest, richest trading center in Norway.” Others will be envious; the time has come to fortify, to dig ditches, to turn this small overgrown village into a true defended city.
A mighty Viking warrior who believes he is destined for greatness. Leading Vikings to sail west for the first time, he rose to power first by defeating Earl Haraldson in single combat, then King Horik after he attempts to murder Ragnar and his family. Family: Lagertha (first wife), Queen Aslaug † (second wife), Rollo (brother), Björn (son), Gyda † (daughter), Ubbe (son), Hvitserk (son), Sigurd † (son), Ivar (son), Siggy † (granddaughter) Actor: Travis Fimmel
Lagertha is the first wife of Ragnar Lothbrok. She is an Earl, a strong shield-maiden and a force to be reckoned with. She has always fought in the shield-wall alongside the men. Although fate has pulled her apart from Ragnar, it seems that the gods must have a plan to bring them back
together, where they belong. Family: Ragnar † (first husband), Sigvard † (late husband), Rollo (former brother-in-law), Björn (son), Gyda † (daughter), Siggy † (granddaughter), Kalf † (lover) Actor: Katheryn Winnick
Rollo, Ragnar’s brother, is impulsive, wild, care-free and compulsive. Rollo is a fierce fighter who is a fearsome berserker known to 'fight like a bear' but is often svershadowed by his brother. The relationship between Rollo and Ragnar is intense and always unpredictable. Rollo has become the Duke of Normandy after marrying Princess Gisla (the daughter of Emperor Charles) and is named defender of France from the Vikings. Family: Siggy † (lover), Ragnar † (brother), Björn (nephew), Gyda † (nephew), Ubbe (nephew), Hvitserk (nephew), Sigurd † (nephew), Ivar (nephew), Lagertha (former sister-in-law), Aslaug † (sister-in-law), Princess Gisla (wife) Actor: Clive Standen
Bjorn Lothbrok is the son of Ragnar and Lagertha and the oldest of Ragnar’s many sons. Intelligent and determined, Bjorn loves and admires his father above all men. Following in Ragnar’s footsteps, Bjorn desires to test himself as a fighter as well as an explorer. After fighting in battle without receiving one wound or scratch, he garnered the famous nickname “Bjorn Ironside.” Family: Torvi (wife), Siggy † (daughter), Lagertha (mother), Ragnar † (father), Rollo (uncle), Gyda † (sister), Ubbe (brother), Hvitserk (brother), Sigurd † (brother), Ivar (brother) Actor: Alexander Ludwig
Aslaug is the clever and beautiful daughter of the famed dragon slayer Sigurd and shield-maiden Brunhilde. Aslaug promised Ragnar that she would provide him with the sons which the ancient Seer prophesized for him – and she delivered. She is also a völva (a seeress). Family: Ragnar † (husband), Rollo (brother-in-law), Ubbe (son), Hvitserk (son), Sigurd † (son), Ivar (son), Björn (step-son) Actor: Alyssa Sutherland
The oldest son by Ragnar and Aslaug, he has a paternalistic attitude towards his younger brothers. Ubbe is a sensitive, thoughtful and attractive young man, in many ways the closest in outlook and instinct to his father Ragnar Family: Ragnar † (father), Aslaug † (mother), Rollo (uncle), Björn (half-brother), Hvitserk (brother), Sigurd † (brother), Ivar (brother) Actor: Jordan Smith
Son of Ragnar. Hvitserk and his older brother Ubbe have a special bond because when they were children they jumped together in an icy lake and had to be rescued by Siggy, who died in the attempt. Hvitserk is more complex and a darker character than his brother Ubbe, characteristics which become more pronounced in time and lead to a terrible denouement. Family: Ragnar † (father), Aslaug † (mother), Rollo (uncle), Björn (half-brother), Ubbe (brother), Sigurd † (brother), Ivar (brother) Actor: Marco Ilsø
Son of Ragnar. Sigurd was born with a astigmatism in one eye, in the shape of a snake or dragon. This flaw has a damaging psychological impact on him, making him feel different from his older brothers and more estranged from the family. He is a sensitive young man, growing up feeling that he has to provide himself. Family: Ragnar † (father), Aslaug † (mother), Rollo (uncle), Björn (half-brother), Ubbe (brother), Hvitserk (brother), Ivar (brother) Actor: David Lindstrom
Son of Ragnar. Perhaps the most famous Viking of all time, his pathological cruelty was notorious even during his own lifetime. Ivar is deeply ambitious and his ambitions will twist the legacy of his father out of shape, and create universal war. People are genuinely afraid of Ivar. Family: Ragnar † (father), Aslaug † (mother), Rollo (uncle), Björn (half-brother), Ubbe (brother), Hvitserk (brother), Sigurd † (brother) Actor: Alex Høgh Andersen
Floki is a genius ship builder and he designs and builds the prototype of the new generation of Viking ships which can sail across the open ocean but also up the shallowest of rivers. Without Floki, Ragnar would have never been able to fulfill his dreams of discovering new lands and new civilizations. Floki is a religious zealot who believes in the Gods above anything and everything, including Ragnar. Family: Helga † (wife), Angrboda † (daughter) Actor: Gustaf Skarsgård
First lover, then wife to Floki, Helga normally lives away from Kattegat with their daughter, but stays in the village when Floki is in Wessex, becoming close to Aslaug and Siggy. She travels to Paris but Floki's actions and behavior drives a wedge between them. Family: Floki (husband), Angrboda † (daughter) Actor: Maude Hirst
