    See, I think they did a great job making Ragnar annoying near the end so that I was ready for him to die. Kind of tired of watching his arc.

    It’s not the arc that bothered me. It was the timing of it.

    I agree. The show is not the same and has lost much of my interest. And what happened to Rollo? I know he lives in France but will he make an appearance again? The only reason Im still watching is for Floki, Bjorn and Lagertha. I couldnt care less about Ragnar other sons.
    I would like the shows creator to make, "Ragnar - The missing years". Follow his adventures from the six year journey away from Kattegat. The writer would have carte blanche since nobody really knows the true story of his missing years.

    Rollo is going to come back this season. I saw an interview with the actor. To do what? I don't know, but it's his descendants, the Normans, that finally conquer England.

    I just read up on Rollo a bit, and his descendants eventually rule Sicily too. And, not just the island, the bottom 1/3 of Italy as well. Which I did not know, and we know Bjorn is in Sicily on the TV show right now.

    I am thinking Astrid is going to take a page out of Lagerthas book,...and shank king Harald and take his lands and titles.

    but Ivar the boneless becomes the most famous of all vikings...I am curious to see how that story arc plays out.

    Plus, remember that Lagertha forcefully stole King Harolds seed in that barn. So she has that up her "sleeve" so to speak. If its a male, future heir to the throne?

    Then that scene in the barn makes no sense at all unless she just wanted the feel of a man after only loving on women for so long?

    I think she was messing with his head just a little and actually planned to execute him...his escape of course foiled that plan.

    Yeah the other sons seem like bitches. Björn seems like a Viking. Still enjoying it but seems like too many storylines stretching the focus overly much.
