The sons of Ragnar are truly tested in the second half of season five as Ivar goes full Joffrey, killing indiscriminately, declaring himself to be a god, fortifying Kattegat, and lathering on the warpaint.
Vikings hasn’t really featured a Big Bad before the Boneless, and Ivar’s escalating insanity is a treat to watch. Over in Wessex, King Alfred agrees to grant land to Ubbe, Björn and Lagertha (rocking a new look) in exchange for fighting off King Harald’s forces – but will he keep his promise? Floki’s island community begins to crumble; Bishop Heahmund is torn between his vows and love for Lagertha; and an alliance must be forged with an old rival in order to reclaim Kattegat from the tyrant Ivar. Needless to say, not everyone makes it to the end, and a certain character’s demise will have fans baying for Ivar’s blood.
