Vikings brutal murder: An interview with [spoiler]

April 10, 2016

An out-of-body experience

 

EW – Last week, Vikings staged a massive battle episode. But surprisingly, it wasn’t until this week that the bodies started to pile up. The newest episode – SPOILERS FROM HERE – saw major deaths across the Vikings world. Most shocking, in terms of sheer unexpected brutality, was the drowning death of Yidu, Ragnar’s slave-turned-mistress-slash-drug-dealer. In the throes of what appears to be a serious drug addiction, Ragnar got into an argument with Yidu. She threatened to go public with his secret about the demolished colony in Wessex — and without missing a beat, Ragnar pulled her into the water, drowning her in full view of his young sons.

 

It was a sudden, unexpected end for a character whose existence was always shrouded in mystery. We spoke to actress Dianne Doan about her interpretation of the motivations that led to the death scene.

 

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: When you first joined the show, did you know how Yidu’s arc on the show was going to end?

 

DIANNE DOAN: When I auditioned for the role, I think it was intended for an eight-episode arc. You’re never really sure. But [Vikings creator Michael Hirst] does such a good job of keeping us all on our toes. Every time we get these scripts, someone else dies.

How Vikings Pulled Off That Impressive Boat-Moving Sequence

April 10, 2016

IGN – Ragnar’s attack on Paris might be ill-advised, but his plan to strike at the city strategically is pretty sound. After suffering a defeat against Rollo in “The Profit and the Loss,” the king of Kattegat quickly devised a new plan that, according to showrunner Michael Hirst, is firmly cemented in fact.

 

“My historical consultant said, ‘You know, if there was an obstruction on the river when the Vikings were going river raiding and they couldn’t get around the obstruction, they would dismantle the boats and carry them around the mountains and put them back on the other side,’ so we did that,” Hirst said of the scene. “It’s easy for me to do. I just write it, it’s two lines: ‘They carry their boats over the mountain.'”

 

Ultimately the Vikings team was able to translate Hirst’s short description into a reality. Shooting near Vikings’ Ireland set, the creative team actually made the pulley system that hoisted the boats over the side of the cliff and then the system that allowed the boats to roll over the logs.

 

“I don’t get on set that much these days, but I went up to see them when they were filming,” Hirst recalled. “We film everything within a 30-mile radius of here, but it means we have lots of different landscapes. I got on set and there were hundreds of people and hundreds of extras, and they were hauling a boat up a cliff face for real.”

 

Marveling at the physicality of the Vikings crew, Hirst glowed about their determination to bring this impressive sequence to life. While there was a modern crane holding up the boat so it didn’t fall, the crew did develop a real pulley and rope system that was a reproduction of what vikings would have used at the time.

 

There were hundreds of guys hauling this thing up a cliff face, a boat — I don’t know how many tons it weighs — and it was going up. And they said, ‘Michael, come to the top of the cliff,’ and so I walk to the top of the cliff,” he said. “What I said in the script — and what they did — is they would clear a path through the forest, and with the trunks of the trees that they cut they would make a roadway so the boats could be hauled over the trunks and rolled over. … They’d cut a mile of trees, and they were hauling another boat through the forest. It was just unbelievable. It makes me so proud. It’s fantastic.”

 

This is all part of Ragnar’s plan to conquer Paris — and, of course, face of with Rollo again. Hirst promises that the final battle between them is “not just one episode,” and that it’s “absolutely amazing.” More ship battles on the horizon, perhaps?

4×08 “Portage” Recap

April 10, 2016

EW – “How strange life is.”

 

Two rulers of two great lands, speaking the same words, hundreds of miles away. Emperor Charles has never met King Ecbert. Perhaps he never will. Both men have met Ragnar Lothbrok, the unclean pagan conqueror from the North. Emperor Charles has married his daughter away to Ragnar’s brother. Ecbert romanced Ragnar’s ex-wife, and he now holds Ragnar’s bastard son as an honorable hostage. How strange life is. How curious this world can become, when one man sails further than any other before him.

 

In Paris

 

Celebration throughout the streets of the Frankish capital. The Northmen are gone — all thanks to a Northman. But Count Odo does not think it is the time to celebrate. He advises Emperor Charles not to trust Rollo. “I fear he may revert to his instincts,” he says. “There is nothing else in the mind of the pagan Rollo but the destruction of Paris and its Emperor.” After all, the Emperor’s daughter is still young. She can marry again, to someone more respectable, someone older: Someone like Odo, in fact.

 

The Emperor considers this advice. He knows that Odo is plotting against him. But perhaps, for someone raised in royalty, it is not unusual to imagine that all sides are plotting against you. Perhaps it is just a matter of choosing the lesser of two evils. The Emperor dines with his daughter and son-in-law, commending him for all he’s done for Paris. “The defeat of Ragnar Lothbrok,” says the Emperor, “Will resound down the ages.” Rollo isn’t so sure. His brother is still alive. Paris must be watchful. They need a protector. “You talk as if you no longer need me to protect you,” says Rollo.

 

Princess Gisla has happy news, which she delivers with exquisite timing. “You should also know that I’m carrying Rollo’s child,” she tells her father. “How strange life is,” he responds. They drink to the Frankish-Viking alliance, and to the child whose existence seals that alliance in blood.

4×07 “The Profit and the Loss” Recap

April 03, 2016

EW – The gods themselves sing of Ragnar’s victories. The farmer who became an Earl, the Earl who became a King, the King who sailed west to England and south to Frankia, who made the very kin of Charlemagne weep with fear. When his traitorous brother Rollo allied himself with Jarl Borg, Ragnar and King Horik fought them to a standstill. Then Ragnar killed Jarl Borg. Then Ragnar killed King Horik.

 

But here, now on the river’s shore outside Paris, Ragnar faces a new challenge. His brother, a traitor again. The men of Frankia, in two towers on two shores. Ragnar has a plan. “He won’t be expecting us to attack by land also,” he tells his troops. His boats will sail down the river; another force will attack Rollo’s tower. Lagertha will lead the party on foot. King Harald’s boat shall sail first. Ragnar’s mouth is red; his mistress feeds him her medicine, and perhaps it settles his mind — or perhaps it unsettles it.

 

Why is Lagertha here? Ragnar wants to know. A violent man, an ambitious man, Ragnar has always been a family man. He loves his children — the dead one, perhaps, more than the living. Lagertha is with child, is she not? “The seer prophesied I would never have another child,” she says. “You’re certainly doing everything in your power to prove the seer’s prophecy right,” Ragnar spits.

 

They row away, leaving Ragnar’s children behind to defend the camp. Bjorn Ironside is resolute. “I hate my uncle,” he says. “I want to kill him.” “Good,” says Ragnar.
