No Rest For The Weary, 'Vikings' Creator Dishes on Ragnar's New Foes

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.

'Vikings' Actors Brave Bad Weather, No Trailers, Difficult Scenes To Create Imaginative World

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.

"The Lord's Prayer" Brings Showdown Between King Horik and Ragnar, But Is Bjorn Safe?

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".
