Discuss Vikings

Hi Everyone,

I am a Vikings show fan and I've just joined this website in the wake of IMDB soon closing their messageboard feature/section. Just wondering who else from the IMDB.com Vikings board is here?

Hopefully the rest of the fans will come but not the trolls. I know, too much to ask for.

Yeah, I hope so.

I'm from IMDB

I'm here too!

Hi guys. :)

Do you like Vikings, Game of Thrones, Star Wars or something of that nature?

I like Vikings and Game of Thrones.

I liked the first two seasons of Vikings. I found it hard to concentrate while watching last season. I was a huge Travis fan... (how do you block out spoilers here?) Now I'm looking forward to the second season of The Last Kingdom (starts March 16th!) and I'm binge watching Black Sails. (And my guilty pleasure right now is The 100, just don't tell anyone.)

Part 2 of season 4 is kinda of a letdown, I'm still stuck on episode 2.

It's brilliant that The Last Kingdom is returning. :) Regarding the Vikings program, I think Travis was great but it could be said that a natural transformation has occured to allow the essence of the show to continue with newer cast members and new scenarios.

Same here. We are super-lucky because I haven't seen the trolls arrive yet.

new here also trying to figure out how to see reviews and why Ragnow had to die

Ragnar voluntarily chose to die because he couldn't get anyone to help him fight in England (where he wanted to seek revenge for what ECBERT did to the VIKING SETTLEMENT).

The reason no one in KATTEGAT would fight for him is because after coming back from fighting the big battle in PARIS he disappeared for several years .

So when he shows back up again no one respected him anymore, and hardly anyone one but his crippled son IVAR and a few other men he PAYS with his loot from PARIS volunteer to go to England with him.

And when he gets there, he let's the ENGLISH MEN torture and kill him, because he knew the news of his death would piss off his other 4 SONS who would seek revenge on ENGLAND for his death.

So it was his own choice to die, because it was the only way he could seek the revenge that he wanted for what had been done to the VIKING SETTLEMENT.

As you may recall, the VIKING SETTLEMENT was also a part of the PEACE TREATY that he had with ECBERT.

Then ECBERT ordered his son to KILL all of the VIKINGS who had set up farms and settled there.

Then the SONS of RAGNAR destroyed the PALACE where the son of ECBERT lived and ECBERT also killed himself by slashing his wrists in the place where he took a BATH with RAGNAR (and later on with Ragnar's former wife LAGERTHA, ATHELSTAN, and his daughter in law JUDITH).

Wikipedia also has summaries of each season and episode of the show if that's what you're looking for.

:crossed_swords:

Here's part of the S4 summary that explains how he dies:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vikings_(season_4)

Ecbert admits ordering Aethelwulf to kill the Norse settlers, expresses regret, and frees Ragnar from his cage. The two drunkenly discuss the afterlife and the death of Athelstan, which Ragnar says weighs on his conscience. Ragnar asks Ecbert to kill him, but Ecbert refuses. Instead, Ecbert agrees to hand Ragnar over to King Aelle and arrange safe passage for Ivar to go home. Ragnar promises that his sons will seek vengeance against Northumbria, not Wessex.

44 15 "All His Angels" CiarĂ¡n Donnelly Michael Hirst December 28, 2016

Ecbert has arranged a ship to take Ivar home. Ragnar speaks with Ivar alone and says goodbye, knowing he will be handed over to Aelle and die. Ragnar tells Ivar to take revenge on Ecbert, and to be ruthless. Ragnar gives Athelstan's cross to his son Alfred, and tells Ecbert that in the end, Athelstan chose Christ. On the road, Ragnar has visions of his younger days and of a discussion with the Seer, where he denounces his belief in the gods. Ragnar arrives in Northumbria and is tortured by Aelle. Ecbert travels there in disguise to attend Ragnar's execution. Ragnar says that he dies without apology and welcomes death, and will await his sons in Valhalla to hear stories of their triumphs. Ragnar is then dropped into a pit of snakes where he dies.
