The wind of change

Hail Vikings,

The trailer arrived a month ago and I was seriously in panic. What to do with my blog it has so many aspects in it where do I start and how will I write done all this awesomeness and sadness in one. I decided to think about it and decided last week I will do it in more than one blog.

This one I will call "The wind of change", next week will be the one I call ´The world will tremble", Mythology will also be one of the series blogs I am going to make. I don't know yet what I want to call that one.

But first The wind of change.

Why did I want to call this blog the wind of change? I choose that because the first seconds of the trailer are about that. Flags flapping in the wind, we can feel and saw that there is a storm coming we don't know if this is Kattegat, Hedeby or Wessex perhaps. A stone to sharpen an axe trembles. We have seen Sigurd, Hvitserk, Ivar, and Bjorn but also King Eckbert. The change in the story from Ragnar to his sons. The change in rulers although it is a big question who wants to be king in Wessex and who will it be in Kattegat?
There are a few options here in both Wessex and Kattegat. 

Wessex: Aethelwolf who is obviously the one to succeed to become king or will he be ruled out by his father king Eckbert who has his sins on Alfred? What will Magnus do when he smells the power of a true Viking or  will he be just a puppet for Ragnar? Will Magnus change the world from Christianity to heathen once again or will he join forces with his other brothers?

Kattegat: Aslaug who ruled when Ragnar was gone, Bjorn the oldest the official successor, The other boys or will it definitely will be Ivar? Will Halfdan and King Finehair rule Kattegat also one of the many possibilities. What about Lagertha I could see her rule Kattegat.

When we hear the seer speak about calamity, chaos, tragedy and dead we see different things that concerned me. Lagertha could/is pregnant again but will she lose another child, we see lots of blood in that scene, is she going to die or is it a flashback from when she was pregnant. If she becomes pregnant again is it from Ragnar because we see them kiss in the trailer or is this a dream or flashback from Ragnar. Is Ragnar still living in the past instead of the future?

Rollo is changing yet again from Christian when he married Gisla to Viking again. This is because Bjorn, Floki, Helga and Hvitserk in Paris to get safe passages for their journey to the Mediterranean Sea. 

In the trailer: Rollo tells Gisla that still a part of him is Viking. To prove Rollo they show the map Bjorn has found in the cabin when he lived in the wilderness.
Lagertha seems to attack a village I think it is Kattegat. We saw boats come and go to Kattegat, Wessex and far beyond new destinies. On the boats, we see a lot of familiar faces. Halfdan, Finehair, Bjorn, Rollo, Floki, Ragnar, the sons of Ragnar. All the boats have different flags.

We see a few wars for power and raids coming up. Between Lagertha and Aslaug, Ragnar, Aella, and Eckbert, the sons of Ragnar, Aella and Eckbert. We see burning houses in a new place seems to me it is an Arabic place. Paris and Wessex get raided again. Kattegat will be under attack.

Hail Vikings,

First of all, I like to apologize for the recap blogs I thought by now we would know a return date but unfortunately, we don´t have a date yet. The thing is that a lot of new casts introduced over the last couple of weeks.

The trailer came out during San Diego Comic-Con 22 Juli and I haven't posted it yet. so my blog isn't exactly up to date due to several reasons.

One of them is the date that Vikings will return but most of all I have seen the trailer multiple times and have seen so much that I wasn't able to write anything down because there is so much to write about the trailer already.

In the next few blogs, I will try to make it up to you so stay tuned for new Vikings blogs. The blogs will come out every Thursday at 13:36 PDT
Sometimes my posts on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and TUMBLR are faster feel free to follow me over there as well.

SPOILERS Ivar season 4 part 1 recap

(Bernard Walsh/History) http://tvshowpatrol.com/news/vikings-meet-ragnar-adult-sons/

Hail Vikings,

Where Aslaug is Ivar is to be seen most of the time. We see a little fragile child at first but when we see him in the time before Yule when Ragnar wants him to decorate like the other children he refuses to do that. When Aslaug and Ragnar get a fight about him Ragnar refuses to tread him like a cripple where Aslaug tries to get him as spoiled as possible.

Ivar has an own mind and this turns him into something different then the other children of Aslaug and Ragnar. When Harbard returns to Kattegat he take away the pain of Ivar once more. 

Aslaug ask Floki to teach him about the gods and how to be a Viking he gets to see Ivar every day. If children are playing outside Ivar wants to play when Floki puts him in between the children Ivar at first lose the battle about the ball when he gets it. The second time it happens we see Ivar do something different he kills the child when he is about six years old.

When we see Ivar again he is grown-up. What we see is Ivar defending his father and we see a big difference between him and his brothers. He is the one that only believes Ragnar did what he had to do and that he is still their father. Curious and admiring his father he wants him to return to Kattegat.

If Ragnar arrives in Kattegat and first speak to Ivar, we see Ivar grow and the acknowledgement he gets is great. I for one had the feeling he want to attack Ragnar but didn't and saw a disappointment in him when Ragnar was shouting "Who wants to be King?"

Sigurd gets Harbard away from Kattegat. When he find Siggy dead in the river he goes to Aslaug who doesn´t know where he is talking about wasted as she was. 

When we meet the grown-up version of Sigurd it is at the cabin. He is also one of them who wants to kill his father after what had happened to the settlement in Wessex. He thinks Ragnar betray a lot of people. When he meet Ragnar who surprisingly returned to Kattegat he is also challenged to kill his father but don´t want to do it.

Hail Vikings,

Hvitserk is asking a few times if he is going to Paris with Ragnar. When Ragnar decides that Hvitserk is at the age to go and sail with Ragnar to Paris. He gets his arm ring. During that trip, he is only allowed to watch and learn. 

At the camp in Paris, he is the one that needs to save and keep the stocking and tents good when Ragnar is away. But with the surprise attack by Roland at the camp, he is in need to save himself together with Yidu and Ubbe. After seeing Yidu murdered by his father we don´t see him anymore.

When we see him again he is up at the cabin after a hunt and is grown-up. After he heard what had happened to the settlement he wants his father to come back. He wants Ragnar dead. When suddenly out of nowhere Ragnar returns he wants to see for himself. Ragnar dares him to kill him.
