A show that is hugely popular for its historical plot, tremendous performance and some characters who are now not only part of the history, but our favorites. Such a character was of Ragnar Lothbrok. The lead of the series and the most famous Vikings, he is a character who is true to history. The powerful performance of Travis Fimmel, who portrays Ragnar, is undoubtedly is the most powerful entity of the show, who single-handedly made Vikings possible. The power packed acting and the rawness is the key mark of him. But alas! With the end of season four, we lost this man. He is butchered by the dramatic plot keeping the audiences’ mind in awe and shock. Now there is the fifth season in the making and the fans are full of questions regarding it. The most important of all is can Vikings survive without Ragnar Lothbrok, the hero of the Norse folk?
The answer is tricky. Vikings is based on the family that has gone through all thick and thins keeping themselves up for any crucial power play. But being the head of the family and the clan, the presence of Ragnar is most important to the plot. Now he is dead, and the shock is evident. But it seems all part of the plan of the makers who has opted for the shocking decision to give a jerk to the audience.
As per the Norse legend, Ragnar was dropped in a pit of snakes by King Aelle, and thus it is a fact that the makers are bringing but is tough for the fans to digest. So it can be said the makers are trying to justice to the historical facts. There are some other reasons too. Losing Ragnar Lothbrok might be unfortunate but that never hints that www.vikingsseason5.com will be a complete loss. The sons of this great man will now be the focus as well as the second wife of him, Lagertha will get some limelight.
Ivar the Boneless, Ragnar's crippled son, who is expected to go up to take charge of the power and he will be seen against Jonathan Rhys-Meyers' Bishop Heahmund. Lagertha, played by Katheryn Winnick has already seen posting some pictures of her new ‘chair, ’ and she seems to play a crucial part in the coming season.
But there are already rumors of Ragnar’s comeback in the coming season. But how can a dead man come back! Some fans think maybe he will appear the on the screen through the retrospect, or flashback or might be some dream of any character. We don’t know yet! But to know that we have to wait till the premier of the season!
