EW – History’s Vikings is returning Feb. 18, but for fans who can’t wait, EW is excited to share an exclusive look at the new season: A Last Supper-inspired piece of key art featuring the show’s cast. Vikingscreator/writer-of-every-episode Michael Hirst offers an in-depth look at the artwork. Click on the image above for a full-sized view, and read Hirst’s tantalizing teases for the season ahead, below:
A picture of the Last Supper portraying pagan Vikings in the role of Christ and his apostles may seem, to some, very controversial. But I would say, if nothing else, it emphasizes the centrality of belief systems and spirituality in the show. We are addressing that conflict between Christianity and paganism.
So many Renaissance artists painted a version of the Last Supper because of art starting to perform a new function. The depict human and emotional dilemmas using this motif, the image of prophesied betrayal. All the figures in these paintings are concentrated around the words: “One of you will betray me.” I think that’s the key to understanding this image that we have from the show. It’s exactly the same issue that’s being confronted.
CARTER MATT – The CarterMatt Awards are now getting into full swing, and today we are back to profile the last of our “underrated” categories in Underrated Actress.

Katheryn Winnick, “Vikings” (History) – Lagertha is an incredible character, one who is strong yet complicated. Her relationship with Ragnar Lothbrok remains one of the most stellar components of the series, but even without him around she delivers in every single scene that she is in. Sometimes history can feel drab, knowing at least to a certain extent how certain events are going to conclude; thanks to the performance of Winnick and others, “Vikings” never feels this way in the slightest.
Mrs. Carter: Does Ragnar Lothbrok have the time for his two loves?
With Ragnar’s siege on Paris not going exactly as he had thought and losing many of his men and women before finally penetrating the walls of the city, King Lothbrok has a lot on his plate and not all of it is good – the same goes for the two main women in his life.
In the first season of “Vikings” we saw a strong, unbreakable bond between Ragnar and shield maiden Lagertha as they had two small children and another boy on the way, but after his daughter was killed and Lagertha miscarried their second son, Ragnar started to worry that his legacy was going to die out if it was all shouldered by his one son, Bjorn. As time went on, we saw Ragnar meet Aslaug, a beautiful noble woman who caught his interest physically, but also mentally as she was able to outsmart him at his own riddle. They spent one night together, but that was all it took for Aslaug to become pregnant and sail over to Ragnar’s lands to try and take claim over him. Ragnar tried to get away with having both Aslaug and Lagertha as his “wives”, but Lagertha wasn’t going to have it and she packed up Bjorn and left Ragnar behind.
They’re currently on presale along with other Viking merchandise from Entertainment Earth but since some of those items have sold out in pre-sale, you might want to order them now. Even if you don’t like the figures, there are some really nice items like keychains, glasses, coasters, etc
First of all, I’m alikat7 and I created a new website called Vikings Fan (really original, aren’t I? lol) I’m trying to make this site a go-to place for all of the Vikings fans to get the most up-to-date information and photos, but I was curious to know a few things:
1. Would anyone be interested in a forum to meet other fans and discuss the show if I added it on the fansite?
2. Would you be more willing to contribute fanart to the site if I set up the gallery so you could create your own galleries and add the art yourself? Or would you be more likely if you just email it to me and I add it in an album with your name? (which is how I originally thought it best but I’m willing to consider other ideas)
3. If I were to do fanvideo and fanart contests, would people contribute and participate?
Please feel free to give your feedback and if you can’t fit it all in a message, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, please stop by the site and let me know what you think! And follow us on here and on Twitter: http://twitter.com/vikingsfansite
I’d love to affiliate with the Vikings blogs on here so hit me up if you’re interested.
