History channel announced that the hit drama series Vikings Season 4 is returning this November 30 for its mid season premiere after a rather long hiatus. The channel lately even rescheduled the show from its usual Thursday night slot to Wednesday nights.
With months having passed since the midseason finale happened in April, fans are highly anticipating to catch the new challenges for King Ragnar Lothbrok, his ex-wife Lagertha, and his sons, Ivar the Boneless and Bjorn.
Season 4 Episode 11 Spoilers
The Vikings will open with Season 4 Episode 11 in its midseason premiere. History revealed the official synopsis for Episode 11 and one thing is for sure, Ragnar is back. The King had disappeared following his humiliating loss to his brother Rollo in Paris.
The show takes a time jump into the future and Ragnar makes an appearance in Kattegat. The synopsis hinted that Ragnar has unfinished business in Wessex with King Ecbert. So the followers of the drama series can expect a showdown between the two powerful kings of the era. It will be interesting to watch whether the warrior or the Machiavellian thinker will succeed in the battle.
Also, Ragnar?s sons are not happy with his return but Ragnar tells them that they may have to murder him to become the king. The trailer released at the Comic-Con also hints that one of his sons will kidnap him. The end of King Lothbrok it seems is near.
Synopsis: In the midseason premiere, Ragnar’s reappearance in Kattegat triggers a chain of events no one ? except the Seer ? could have ever imagined. He unexpectedly arrives home to see what has become of his sons and to handle unfinished business in Wessex with King Ecbert (Linus Roache). Meanwhile, Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) plans a power play in Kattegat and Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig) prepares to fulfill his long-held dream to explore the Mediterranean in a sleek new boat built for him by Floki (Gustaf Skarsg?rd).
Lagertha vs. Aslaug
Meanwhile, Ragnar-Lagertha fans can also wait for a reunion of their popular onscreen power couple. The spoilers claim that Lagertha and Aslaug will face each other in Episode 11. The synopsis also hints that Lagertha is planning a power play in Kattegat.
It looks like news will get to Ragnar?s second wife, Aslaug, who has her own designs. Aslaug will try to overthrow Lagertha to claim the throne. Rumors hint at the likely death of a major character in such a power struggle.
?It’s going to be a cat fight. The two power women go head to head,? Winnick previously told Entertainment Weekly. ?It’s a really interesting scene because you don’t expect what happens.?
Fans fear for the life of Ragnar as such a power struggle might end his life. Several rumors have it that Queen Aslaug might be forgone after the battle. The answer will only be known when the Vikings Season 4 returns Wednesday, November 30 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
