A bit about Episode 4 first:
Things are escalating rapidly now. Ragnar is growing in his cunning and in his understanding of the enemy–the enemy in the West and the enemy at home. The Earl begins to see the nature of the threat of Ragnar and, even though he is on the screen only occasionally, Mr. Byrne’s portrayal is riveting. We never know what he will do next. And that makes for great drama!
Something else that makes for great drama is the battle scenes. These have been wonderfully choreographed and filmed and the battle in Episode 4 was a stunner.
So, the stage is set for the conflict between Ragnar and The Earl to reach its boiling point. Get ready!
Thanks to Det. Logan for this lovely screencap of Gabriel Byrne as Earl Haraldson in Episode 4 of Vikings

In the Great Hall of Kattegat, a seer reads Earl Haraldson’s future and tells him that Ragnar Lothbrok searches for his death. The unanswerable question is whom the gods favor more? As a man willing to defend his power and status to the death, Haraldson intends to take precautionary measures. Ragnar, his home and farm burned by the Earl, is hurt but hidden safely away. He must now choose the path that will lead him back to his freedom.
