In last week’s episode, we had some brutal deaths come to those who posed a threat to Ivar (Alex Høgh Andersen) and Bishop Heahmund (Jonathan Rhys Meyers). In this week’s Vikings preview, Ivar has decided that he needs to do something drastic to convince his people of his power and strength as their king.
In Wessex, Ubbe (Jordan Patrick Smith) shares King Alfred’s (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo) suggestion to be baptized with Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig) and Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick). A move that should help show their loyalty to England and win favor with those who are skeptical with the King’s decision to support their so-called ‘enemies.’ Bjorn does not seem pleased.
Watch the preview for “A New God” below.
The official description of the episode is listed as follows:
Heahmund fights to convince King Alfred of his religious intents in defense of the Crown. Ubbe and Torvi strengthen the position of the Vikings but not everyone supports their strategy. Another settler disappears in Iceland.
Vikings airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. EST on History.
