Season 4 of “Vikings” premiered on the History Channel last week, and just one episode in, there are quite a few events happening on the show. Episode 2 titled “Kill the Queen” will see King Ragnar (Travis Fimmel) making his old friend Floki (Gustaf Skarsgård) pay for Athelstan’s murder.
In a promo for the upcoming Season 4 Episode 2, Floki is seen tied up and standing before Ragnar, where the king asks him why his Gods were unable to protect him, especially considering it was mere children that found him.
“Could it be that the gods were not interested in saving him, because they are angry at you?” He asks the crowd. The king gives his old friend an opportunity to retaliate, but Floki says that he has already said everything that he wants to say, as his wife Helga (Maude Hirst) looks on helplessly.
Ragnar is clearly angry with Floki, but still swayed by the friendship the two once shared. In the preview for “Kill the Queen,” he is heard saying, “You made me suffer. And now, I shall make you suffer.”
Despite Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) trying to convince him that Floki loves him, Ragnar will be seen doling out severe punishment to the shipbuilder. “Floki only loves himself,” Ragnar is heard saying.
Meanwhile, his brother Rollo (Clive Standen) will be seen trying to impress his new bride Princess Gisla (Morgane Planski) by getting a makeover. Fans know that Gisla has insulted him in the past, even calling him a soulless creature. She did not even want to marry him, but went ahead with the wedding for the good of Paris and her people.
Despite Rollo’s best efforts, Gisla is going to be wary of him, and in the promo, she is seen laughing at her husband. However, Rollo’s ambition to become a renowned figure in Paris and his admiration for the strong Gisla will stop him from getting dissuaded by his wife’s insulting laughter.
Watch Season 4 Episode 2 of “Vikings” at 10 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 25, 2016. You can also live stream “Kill the Queen” via History Channel Live Streaming website.
