'Vikings' Season 4: Creator Talks About Shocking Finale And Plans For Season 5 [VIDEO]
History channel's historical-drama action adventure television series, "Vikings", had finally reached an end to its season 4 few days ago. As expected, mind-boggling events are met by shocked fans and the updates and speculations brought by the internet a few days before the finale started, were just very small parts of the whole shocking scenario.
Episode 20 of "Vikings" season 4, which aired last Thursday, featured an unexpected scene that most of the fans have not really seen coming. According to Forbes, it was the best episode for this season compared to the other ones aired on the last couple of weeks.
Characters have died in "Vikings" season 4, yet again. One of them who are not going to be seen anymore further from the series is Floki's (Gustaf Skarsgard) long-suffering wife, Helga (Maude Hirst). In the season finale episode, Helga was seen stabbed by orphan girl Tanaruz (Sinead Gormally), who then decided to take her own life too.
Aside from that, fans did not believe their own eyes to see that Ragnar's (Travis Fimmel) son was killed by the character's other son. It has been shown from "Vikings" season 4 that since the episode where Ragnar was killed, the viking's sons' mission would always be to avenge his death. But on the season finale, Ivar (Alex Hogh) threw an axe on his brother Sigurd (David Lindstrom), because of his constant mockery of his impotence.
It has been reported that although it might be tragic and heart-breaking, sad fans would still reportedly love to know how these events could lead to a possible new season. On an interview reported by Variety, "Vikings" creator Michael Hirst revealed how the season finale went as it was, and how it can be connected to a possible upcoming new season.
On the interview, Hirst said that because the characters of "Vikings" were made to be selfish about winning and fame, scenarios like a series of character deaths is really significant in the show. Moreover, each of Ragnar's son wanted to be his successor, that is why the brotherly love could be brushed off anytime in the episodes.
Meanwhile, the "Vikings" creator also made sure they are still going to return for two more seasons after this. Many more mind-boggling things are reportedly yet to be disclosed, and they are hoping for a continuous support from the series' fans and viewers.
