‘Vikings’ Season 4 Finale: Michael Hirst on Shocking Deaths, Series’ Possible End

February 11, 2017

 

VARIETYSpoilers for those who haven’t seen Season 4 finale of “Vikings.”

 

The sons of Ragnar, different and yet all so like their father, have been united by a single purpose these last few episodes of Season 4: to avenge their father’s death at the hands of King Aelle and, by proxy, King Ecbert (Linus Roache). But they all seem to have different ideas about what to do next — settle down in East Anglia, go back to raiding, sail to yet further shores. And it’s all complicated by Ivar (Alex Høgh) throwing an axe into his brother Sigurd (David Lindström), bringing the finale’s main character body count up to three. “Vikings” creator Michael Hirst called up Variety to talk about what’s next.

 

Will anything happen to Ivar? One would think kinslaying would be a pretty serious deal.

Vikings creator talks about that big finale death

February 11, 2017

 

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY – A typical episode of Vikings is often fatal for minor or major characters. A season finale? That’s a guaranteed bloodbath. And History’s seafaring epic did not disappoint with the fourth season finale, which saw the rising generation of Vikings battle the forces of Wessex, seeking a final vengeance for the death of the great King Ragnar Lothbrok. SPOILERS FROM HERE, as we talk to Vikings creator Michael Hirst about the passing of one of the show’s defining characters.

 

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: In some ways, this episode marked the endpoint of a story that goes all the way back to season 2, with the introduction of King Ecbert (Linus Roache) and his interaction with Ragnar (Travis Fimmel). We saw Ecbert die, by his own hand, in this episode. How did the character change from your initial conception through to his final moments?

 

MICHAEL HIRST: It’s been a monumental season in the sense of losing both Ragnar and Ecbert, two massive characters in the show. Their stories were interweaved. They were very different, but they found that they had so much in common. The process of discovery, of finding out what they had in common, was organic. It never occurred to me in the beginning.

 

Ecbert was a cultured, sophisticated mirror image of Ragnar’s authenticity. He, as a character, grew on me. I was blessed to have Linus Roache to develop him with. Linus and I share a deep love for T.S. Eliot. And I was astonished at how Linus himself had taken this character and started to look broken and old by the end of his story.

‘Vikings’ Creator Breaks Down Finale Deaths and Jonathan Rhys Meyers’ Debut

February 11, 2017

 

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER [Warning: This story contains spoilers from Wednesday’s season four finale of Vikings, “The Reckoning.”]

 

It certainly seemed like a passing of the baton during Wednesday’s fourth season finale of History’s Vikings. Following Ragnar’s (Travis Fimmel) death several episodes ago, his sons continued their mission of revenge in Wessex by coming for King Ecbert (Linus Roache) and his people. In the end, they didn’t have to look hard, as Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig), Ivar (Alex Hogh) and the rest of the crew found Ecbert camped out in his deserted castle, ready for his fate.

 

Ecbert’s plan to trade the Vikings’ (illegal) land and choose his own manner of death (suicide in a pool of water) may have worked for now, but his wasn’t the only blood to be shed during the episode. Longtime character Helga (Maude Hirst) was brutally stabbed in the throat by her “adopted” daughter, leaving Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard) to wallow in his misery. And following their victory, Ragnar’s sons continued to squabble about their futures, leading a provoked Ivar to throw an axe at his brother Sigurd (David Lindstrom) and kill him.

 

Meanwhile, over in another part of England, viewers finally got to meet Jonathan Rhys Meyers’ anticipated new character, Heahmund, a holy man with a penchant for fighting and sex. Although his introduction was brief, he may very well rival Ivar and his newfound war games skills when the series returns for a fifth season.

 

To find out where the show goes from here, learn more about Heahmund’s character and get a preview of the fifth season, THR caught up with creator and showrunner Michael Hirst.

 

It seems like Rollo (Clive Standen) and Floki’s storylines have come to an end — have they?

 

No. No, no. They haven’t gone at all. They’ll be back, absolutely.

Vikings creator and star talk about the shocking ‘All His Angels’

December 31, 2016

EWWarning: Major Spoilers for the latest episode of Vikings are ahead.

 

Characters have died on Vikings before — main characters killed by other main characters, major political figures cut down to make way for a new generation, and great warriors dying brilliantly in battle. But this week, the show cut down its most legendary figure. King Ragnar Lothbrok – who sailed across the sea to raid Northumbria and Wessex, who brought ships to the great walls of Paris, who wandered the world for long years after his humiliation and returned to his home to complete one final quest – is dead. Held high in a cage in the forest, he was dropped into a snakepit, his death witnessed by his nemesis King Aelle and his slightly-more-friendly nemesis King Ecbert.

 

Anyone familiar with the sagas from which Vikings derives its narrative knew that Ragnar would die eventually. You might be surprised, though, to hear that this death was originally going to happen much earlier. “I was meant to die at the end of the first year,” says Travis Fimmel, the Australian actor who played Ragnar. “I ended up staying around for three more!”

SDCC 2016: Violence, Vodka & Season 4.2 Trailer At The ‘Vikings’ Panel

July 27, 2016

We still don’t have the video from the panel so here’s an article about some details.

 

DEADLINE – Things were very spirited today – in more ways than one – as History’s marquee original series Vikings invaded Room 6BCF at Comic-Con this afternoon to whet fans’ appetites for the upcoming second half of Season 4, which returns to television this fall in advance of the 20-episode 5th season set to air in 2017. A very admittedly drunk Travis Fimmel (Ragnar) was joined by co-stars Katheryn Winnick (Lagertha), Clive Standen (Rollo), Gustaf Skarsgard (Floki), Alyssa Sutherland (Aslaug) and Alexander Ludwig (Bjorn) on the panel, along with writer-creator Michael Hirst for a discussion of the shocking events of the first half of season 4, what’s to come in the second half, how Hirst helped with an archaeological dig in England that may have discovered the grave of Ivar the Boneless, and more.

 

The panel also unveiled a new trailer for season 4, part 2, which you can see above in all its pillaging and murderous glory.

‘Vikings’ creator on what’s next after that time jump twist

April 28, 2016

ZAP2IT – It’s hard to believe that wasn’t a season finale, but “Vikings” is only halfway through Season 4 and already nothing will be the same.

 

In Thursday’s (April 21) episode, Rollo (Clive Standen) defeated Ragnar (Travis Fimmel), leading to a major jump in time that brought the midseason finale episode to a close. After being away for years, Ragnar returned to a Kattegat that had evolved into a major settlement without him to find all of his sons grown and Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig) plotting out the Mediterranean voyahe he is historically most remembered for.

 

With so many developments, Zap2it went to “Vikings” creator and sole writer Michael Hirst to help us sort out what it all means and get the lowdown on what’s to come when the show returns later in the year.

 

Zap2it: After the battle between Rollo and Ragnar, we see the Vikings retreating, defeated. We see Ragnar off to the side, curled up in a ball. What’s going through his head after being thoroughly handled by his own brother?

 

Michael Hirst: Well, I think that’s for you to decide. I think it was an interesting trajectory to take the most charismatic, the most beautiful, the most compelling character in the show and then to take him on a downward trajectory into defeat.

 

I don’t think that’s particularly normal. Certainly in America, it’s not something you’d expect to see. But I thought I could carry the audience with me because they knew Ragnar wasn’t interested in power. They knew the burden that he carried was almost too much for him. They knew he would probably be happy to die.

 

The funny thing is as well, whatever you think of Rollo — who’s not charismatic in the same way — you kind of went, “That’s OK! I’m rooting for him, he’s good! I like him!”

 

Then they say “Hail Caesar!” it’s a good moment for Rollo. I’m kind of pumping my fist for him too.
