Yes, he must have found a good sponsor...

I presume that Bjorn inherited the "throne" but why was Ragnar's wife still appearing to have some stature ?

She was in charge while Ragnar was on business trips, though the stay-behinds were mostly women and children. She was some kind of queen in her own right when Ragnar first found her. Bjorn seems to have become a confident leader, but not so interested in the manipulative politics and intrigue aspects - more like Rollo than Ragnar. Lagertha would be more of a natural at ruling but she's apparently still occupied elsewhere...

Very see-saw season. Some good moments (Bjorn all alone), and some really bad moments.


Totally hate this whole opium addiction thing with Ragnar, really badly done and out of place and takes away from the character and his bad a**ness.


Cool battle scene on the water though. Really up and down for me as I binged watch most of this season to date.
Some of the episodes were outstanding, some not so much.

I think it sort of ballsy that they are making Ragnar a flawed character. These were not especially nice people. Bound to be a bit of bad karma.

Did a fun discovery today when I looked at my wifes family history. Managed to go all the way to Sigurd Snake in the Eye. Of course history is a bit cloudy in thar era. But I may get her interested in the show now.

Well as some things come to a close, others begin. Vikings starts up again tomorrow on Wednesday. TV must go on.

Yesterday my daughter sent me a text giving me a heads up about the return of Vikings. It's a good thing she did. I bought a new TiVo Bolt last summer and somehow overlooked setting up a season pass for the show, although one was on my old TiVo Premiere Elite. Really looking forward to the show's return!

Also a recap special before tonight's episode, and a related special following - they might not appear in all guides...

So what's this a single episode before the proper season next year?

Not sure what you are asking but if I get the question, no, this was the start of the new season and it is now on every week. Another new episode is listed next week.

Actually it's listed on ZAP2IT as S04E11. Amazon also lists S04E01 - S04E10 as "season 4 part 1".

I thought I remembered it as being a 13-ep season...

The wife and I missed this show badly. Last night did not disappoint and we're psyched for the rest of the season!

Last night's episode was the first of the 10 episode second part of season 4. Season 4 was increased to 20 episodes.

Thanks for sharing that information; I was not aware of the season four layout.

It's just semantics. A big time-jump like that would normally occur "between" seasons. When networks start splitting seasons, then selling shiny-disk sets that only include those half-seasons, the line between seasons is no longer distinguishable. It's whatever the network or studio wants to call it.

THat's what I was wondering since last night's episode was SE4E11 they also referred this as season 4 "part 2", now it makes more sense.
