MAJOR Vikings SPOILERS are contained in this post. You’ve been warned!!
The time has finally come to say goodbye to Ragnar Lothbrok. We’ve all wondered on SEVERAL occasions, if this thing or that injury would be his end. Now there is no denying. The saga will live on. He is history. Vikings creator/writer Micheal Hirst and Ragnar himself, Travis Fimmel gave interviews to Entertainment Weekly this week commenting on Ragar’s final moments.
Most notably, Fimmel confessed that he was meant to die at the end of the first season of Vikings. Hirst kept him around for three extra years! Ragnar’s death scene was actually filmed a year ago, and in the interview, Fimmel seems at peace with the loss. He has several projects in the works.
As for the future of Vikings, Hirst says that he has just finished the 16th episode of Season 5, and there seems to be quite a lot of excitement around watching Ragnar’s sons move forward. Hirst ‘always pictured the series as a generational saga: not just about Ragnar, but about his sons and how their adventures shaped the world.’
I know I’m excited. I can’t wait to see how Season 4 ends, and what’s in store for the legacy of Ragnar Lothbrok. Will Largatha keep power in Kattegat? Will Bjorn raid the entire Roman Empire? Will Ivar just kill everyone?!? Who’s this new one-eyed guy?
I’m hooked all the way.
