'Vikings' Season 4, Part 2, Release Date News, Plus Episode Synopses And New Season 4 Gallery

Part 2 of History's Vikings Season 4 will be returning on Wednesday, November 30, and fans couldn't be happier to finally find out the release date. Now the synopses and titles for the first three episodes have been released, allowing fans to see which direction Vikings will be taking with the Season 4 return.

Spoiler Alert: This article discusses the Season 4 return of History's Vikings. Please proceed with caution if you wish to avoid spoilers.

Episode 11 of History's Vikings Season 4, Part 2, is called "The Outsider." According to press information released by History, the synopsis for Episode 11 is as follows.

"Ragnar has returned to Kattegat and there are secrets to be revealed. He makes plans to return to Wessex to right past wrongs but finds that those who were once his closest allies now have plans of their own. Even the Lothbrok sons refuse to join their father's mission – except one."
The premiere episode of Season 4B appears to be setting the audience up for the events that will likely unfold in the rest of the season. As Vikings creator Michael Hirst revealed to Variety, Ragnar will be confronting King Ecbert (Linus Roache) in Season 4, Part 2, in regard to the Viking village the king had previously slaughtered.

The next episode synopsis expands on which son will join forces with Ragnar (Travis Fimmel).

Episode 12 of History's Vikings Season 4, Part 2, is called "The Vision." The synopsis for this episode is below.
"The Kattegat locals chide Ragnar that the gods have deserted him as he struggles to crew his voyage to Wessex. It's Bjorn who has charisma now as he prepares to fulfill his long-held dream to explore the Mediterranean in a sleek new boat built for him by Floki. By contrast, Ragnar must accept weathered boats and a crew he has bribed but when Aslaug foresees that the fleet will be lost in a vicious storm her warnings go un-heeded by Ragnar and her precious son, Ivar."
It appears Ragnar will be faced with many challenges in Season 4, Part 2, including that of a substandard fleet and a lack of respect from those around him. Considering his drug addiction, failed battle with his brother in Paris, and his subsequent disappearance in the first half of Season 4, it appears Ragnar will have much to prove in the remainder of this season of Vikings.

Episode 13 of History's Vikings Season 4, Part 2, is called "Two Journeys." The synopsis for this episode of Vikings Season 4, Part 2, is below.

"Ragnar's fleet is shipwrecked and washes up on the Wessex coast, but without enough survivors to form a credible force, Ragnar and Ivar have a difficult decision to make. Rollo meets his Viking comrades again and can't resist the urge to join Bjorn's voyage, risking his marriage and his new Frankish identity. Ragnar too is taking a risk as he carries Ivar towards the Royal Villa in Wessex – throwing himself and his son upon the mercy of King Ecbert."
Episode 13 of the Season 4 return of Vikings appears quite action-packed. Aslaug's (Alyssa Sutherland) vision has partially come true, seeing Ragnar's fleet shipwrecked rather than lost. Regardless of the struggle, Ragnar is determined to make things right and heads toward a confrontation with King Ecbert.
Along with Ragnar's storyline, his brother, Rollo (Clive Standen), gets his first mention in the Season 4 return of Vikings. As was seen in the trailer released at San Diego Comic-Con for Season 4, Part 2, Rollo will meet up with Ragnar's son, Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig). While history suggests otherwise in regard to whether Rollo will return to the Viking lifestyle, Episode 13 of Vikings indicates history might just be rewritten.

Along with the synopses release, History has also released new images for Season 4, Part 2, of Vikings. You can view the full gallery below.
