With Vikings returning on February 18, History Channel has just released plenty of new tidbits to tide fans over for the next month. So far, in the last week alone, History Channel has delighted fans with three teaser clips and some new images for Vikings fans to mull over. It seems Season 4 will see both Ragnar and his son, Bjorn, struggling with the notion of power.

SPOILER ALERT: This article contains speculation about the upcoming Season 4 of History Channel’s Vikings as well as information about Season 3. Please proceed with caution if you wish to avoid potential spoilers or have not watched Season 3 in its entirety.

The three videos are actually very similar in both feel and content as they deal with Vikings main character, Ragnar Lothbrok (played by Travis Fimmel). All deal with the struggle for power, the problem of being in power and what awaits vikings after they die. However, each clip shifts their main focus just slightly, which gives Vikings fans plenty to think about (and worry over) in the short amount of time before Vikings returns next month.

As this recentInquisitr article pointed out, the first video, released a few days ago, speculates about whether Ragnar will enter Valhalla or not. Vikings fans will remember from Season 3, Ragnar suffered great injuries during the raid on Paris. He has now returned to Kattegat and is still suffering the consequences of his injuries. While it does not appear Ragnar will die as a result of injuries sustained, for vikings, a fate practically worse than death is to die while not in battle and, therefore, not be able to enter the walls of Valhalla in the afterlife.

The second video also suggests that while Ragnar is a mighty king, there may be others around him ready to usurp his power. The video draws on the same words uttered by Ragnar, but draws out the potential for Ragnar to have to watch his back while he is not only in power but also while he is vulnerable after his accident in Paris. The clip draws attention to those around him that could be next in line to either become ruler of Kattegat or betray Ragnar once more; his son, Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig), his ex-wife, Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick), Kalf (Ben Robson), Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard) and his brother, Rollo (Clive Standen).
