Season 5 of HISTORY’s Vikings is shifting alongside at a formidable tempo that reminds us of the time creator/author Michael Hirst stated the sequence was like a “grown-up Recreation of Thrones“. We are able to’t say we disagree together with his remark, particularly after season 5 episode 15, “Hell”.
In the event you haven’t caught up on the backhalf of season 5, chances are you’ll wish to try this earlier than studying any additional, as we WILL be discussing the newest episode with massive large juicy spoilers.
“Hell” returns the historic drama sequence to its roots- spectacular battles and clever shows of the horrors of warfare. King Alfred (son of Athelstan and Queen Judith when you’ve forgotten) mounts an assault towards King Harald Fairhair, with the assistance of Lagertha, Bjorn, Ubbe, Torvi, Bishop Heahmund, and their warriors who escaped Ivar’s horde in Kattegat.
Watching Lagertha’s relationship with Heahmund throughout this season has been attention-grabbing, actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers is at all times fascinating to look at, and having him paired with Katheryn Winnick was a terrific selection.
That is partially what made Heahmund’s loss of life throughout “Hell” so hard- the pair sees one another throughout the battlefield, and he cries out her title whereas arrows pierce his armor.
Winnick commented on the episode, and dealing with Meyers:
‘He’s simply such a gifted actor, and such a deep actor and a fancy particular person. And he’s anyone who, his character additionally has a darkish facet, and a really philosophical thoughts and questioning his destiny and questioning the gods and questioning the faith, and I feel that’s the true connection between the 2 of them, they’re each in that very same place proper now.
And the connection did transfer quick, somewhat bit too quick possibly, however I feel for her, she actually wanted to belief anyone that on this time of her life, and he or she moved her entire household and life over there attempt to determine the subsequent transfer to come back again to Kattegat.
So it was laborious to see Bishop Heahmund go, simply because he’s such a tremendous character, they usually had such a bond.’
The true thriller of “Hell” was what occurred to Lagertha after the battle? Bjorn and co scour the battlefield in search of her after the motion, and the warrior is not any the place to be discovered. Fears of her loss of life are put to relaxation by Torvi (in a preview for subsequent season), saying she is aware of Lagertha to be alive.
We are able to’t wait to see what occurs subsequent.
Vikings is ready to return for season 6 someday in 2019 on HISTORY.
