Our fellow heathens, we have reached our mid-season finale! Our characters have gone through the ringer this season. The sons of Ragnar were united in season four since they were avenging their father’s death, but now they have been torn apart. It has been difficult to watch them be on opposite sides; however, it has been thrilling to see who has taken the lead.
Ivar the Boneless (Alex Høgh Andersen) has proven to be a ruthless leader who will stop at nothing to get what he wants. His handicap does not make him any less intimidating. Bjorn Ironside (Alexander Ludwig) has taken after his father in his thirst for adventure. However, he also holds true to his family and attempts at keeping peace among the quarreling sides.
Queen Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) has held her own as one of the most impressive female characters surrounded by men. The addition of Bishop Heahmund (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) has made for some exciting development of relationships with Ivar and Queen Lagertha.
Floki (Gustaf Skarsgård), our quirky boat builder, lost himself at the end of last season and his quest for new land and peaceful life has been difficult so far.
In the promo for this week’s mid-season finale, we see another battle where again the stakes are high. A significant fight during a mid-finale is nerve-wracking. The question of this whole season has been “Who will rise?” This mid-season finale makes us super nervous as to who will survive!
