Spoiler Alert: This article discusses the Season 4 return of History’s Vikings as well as the historical aspects of some of the characters. Please proceed with caution if you wish to avoid spoilers.
For fans of History’s Vikings, it has been a long wait between the mid-season finale and the return of Season 4. When History announced the release date for Season 4, Part 2, fans started anxiously counting down the days. Now, with less than two weeks to go until November 30, it has been revealed that Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) will get some life-altering news in Season 4 Part 2 of Vikings.
According to an interview Katheryn Winnick did with Showbiz Junkies, Lagertha will consult the Seer (John Kavanagh) and receive some devastating news.
“She goes to [the Seer] and he gives her some devastating news that literally changes her for not only the rest of the season, but the rest of her life. It’s a really big scene. It’s really a big moment for him answering a certain question, and I think that what he actually answered I don’t think will be expected. In every choice that I make as an actress, it is in the back of my mind. I think it’s something the audience wouldn’t necessarily expect.”
While it is unclear as to what this news will be in relation to in Season 4 Part 2 of Vikings, perhaps the historical stories of the Vikings could reveal some information.
According to the Gesta Danorum, an English chronicle of some of the Viking stories, Ragnar Lothbrok, played by Travis Fimmel in the television series, met his fate at the hands of King Aelle (Ivan Kaye). So, could this be the devastating news Lagertha will receive in Season 4 Part 2 of Vikings?
Ragnar is set to return to England in Season 4 to confront King Ecbert (Linus Roache) about the Viking settlement that was obliterated by the king, so it certainly places him in a location where King Aelle could attack Ragnar. Some of the footage from the Season 4 Part 2 trailer released at San Diego Comic-Con this year shows Ragnar being surrounded by guards with spears, so this could certainly be the path History are traveling down when Season 4 returns.
However, Entertainment Weekly recently released a teaser trailer for Season 4 Part 2 of Vikings that shows Ragnar attempting to commit suicide. So, perhaps the devastating news Lagertha receives from the Seer is that Ragnar had killed himself.
Another thing to consider with Lagertha is the fact she will be confronting Aslaug (Alyssa Sutherland) in Season 4 Part 2 of Vikings. Winnick explains to Showbiz Junkies that Lagertha wants to take over Kattegat because she thinks neither Ragnar or Aslaug are doing the right thing in regard to the village. She explains that it is Lagertha’s dream to “expand two different territories and also make Kattegat one of the largest trading centers.”
So, could the Seer give her some devastating news in regard to this venture she will be undertaking when Vikings returns? Only by tuning into the Season 4 return of Vikings will the answer be revealed. However, if you would like to know more about what to expect when Vikings returns, you can check out this spoiler-free review of Season 4 Part 2.
