'Vikings' Season 4: Ragnar and Rollo Are Headed For The Most Epic Fight Scene Yet, But Who Will Survive?

Could Ragnar Lothbrok and his brother, Rollo, be headed for the most epic battle yet seen on History Channel's Vikings? According to the actor who plays Ragnar, Travis Fimmel, fans better prepare themselves for all out war between the brothers.

SPOILER ALERT: This article contains information about Season 4 of History Channel's Vikings. Please proceed with caution if you have not yet viewed all available episodes or wish to avoid spoilers.

Episode 1 of Season 4 of Vikings saw Rollo (played by Clive Standen) draw his line in the sand by outright slaughtering all the vikings left in Paris. While his brother, King Ragnar, has yet to hear of this terrible deed, it seems like it will be only time before all hell breaks loose between these siblings.

Betrayal is something that comes naturally to Rollo. In previous seasons of Vikings, Rollo has betrayed his brother and exploited their loyalties on more than one occasion. However, with Rollo now explaining the best battle plan to help the Parisians defeat the vikings, it is likely there will be a bounty on Rollo's head once his exploits are revealed.

"Rollo [has been left] behind in Paris to keep an eye on things, probably the worst character in the show that you could leave behind in a foreign country. He's very easily persuaded. So a lot of season 4 revolves around Rollo and Ragnar's relationship. Ragnar believes that he's going to betray him again and he's had enough of his brother and ultimately the two brothers are going to fight, no matter what."

Added to this is the fact that Rollo is based on an actual historical figure. When Rollo marries in Parisian royalty, he is baptized Robert and eventually becomes the first ruler of Normandy. Considering the new character, King Harald Finehair (set to appear in Season 4 of Vikings) is also closely involved, historically, with Rollo's story, Rollo could very well defeat his brother in battle.
