"Vikings" Season 4 will see the end of Ragnar. But before that, can he still serve and lead his people as a king?
The synopsis of the History Channel's "Vikings" Season 4 Episode 12 "The Vision" reveals that the hit series is placing its main protagonist in a daunting predicament. Establishing his sovereignty in a highly political and savage society is a challenge for the great Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel) when he is bereft of support from practically all sides, especially when he feels the need to right the wrongs of the past.
As a fierce king, Ragnar is a formidable conqueror, but how does he continue to mighty conquer exploits when nothing and no one seems to be in his favor, even the gods and his family--well, except maybe his son, Ivar the Boneless? He has old boats that have undergone other campaigns, fewer men (most of whom he had to bribe); and Ivar's mother, the seer Aslaug, is saying the voyage will end in tragedy.
King Ecbert (Linus Roache) is still being sly in political machinations in England as Ragnar prepares to confront him in Wessex as previously announced by the producers, per The Inquisitr. The locals are claiming that Ragnar has lost the favor of the gods, supporting instead his charismatic son, Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig) and his new ship as they set sail on the Mediterranean.
Bjorn is aided by the brothers Harald Finehair (Peter Franzen) and Halfdan the Black (Jasper Pääkkönen), with Harald working his way to his ambitions to take over Norway against Ragnar. The teased battle between Ragnar's wives, Aslaug (Alyssa Sutherland) and Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) to be Queen in Kattegat ensues as the women establish dominance in their homeland, the publication said in another report. Meanwhile, Aslaug is discouraging Ragnar's only supporter, Ivar (Alex Høgh), from joining him on the voyage to Wessex.
Ragnar prevails on Ivar, but a storm hits Ragnar's ship on the way to Wessex. Will Ragnar and Ivar reach England? Will this be the end of great Ragnar?
