The epic ending to Season 2's Viking's finale left us with Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel) looking out across the vistas - a newly minted king. He had just executed king Horik, and now takes in the mountainous new world before him. Who would he conquer next and who are his enemies? Show creator Michael Hirst gives us the scoop.
Behind-the-scenes, it's all about the attention to detail that 'Vikings' so magical. On a recent TV panel that included creator Michael Hirst, and actors Katheryn Winnick, Jessalyn Gilsig, Clive Standon, George Blagden, Gustaf Skarsguard, Alyssa Sutherland and Donal Logue, shared how the cast braves stormy weather, long make-up rituals, a lack of trailers, and brutal film scenes to create the imaginative 'Vikings' world. "No complaining" here.
That was epic. The ending to Vikings Season 2, The Lord's Prayer, gave us the death of King Horik in unbelievable fashion. Basically, Ragnar guts him with a bloody knife. Now as Ragnar looks out across the mountaintops, he comes to grips with the reality that he is now king. So where does he want to raid next? Paris!
The King speaks at last. Actor Donal Logue, who plays King Horik on The History Channel's hit show 'Vikings,' has spoken on what's going to happen to King Horik in tonight's season finale 'The Lord's Prayer.' Will he finally exact revenge on his rival Ragnar Lothrok or will it be his head that gets the battle axe?
We're a little worried about Bjorn. The war against the Saxons was a complete and utter disaster leaving many Vikings dead, many Vikings deserting to fight as mercenaries for sex-starved Queen Kwenthrith, Rollo trampled by horses, and Ragnar forced to make a treaty with King Ecbert (at least he got his land). Not only that, but Ragnar and King Horik are still at each other's throats. Now, it looks like King Horik might enlist back-stabbing Floki to take Bjorn out in the season finale, "The Lord's Prayer".
