YAY, season 4 of Vikings starts tonight on the History Channel! Everybody's favourite bloodthirsty bunch of savage heathens is back again for yet another round of mayhem! Well, except for [SEASON 3 SPOILER ALERT] poor Christian monk-turned-Viking Athelstan, of course. I suspect that this year Ragnar will wreak terrible vengeance on Floki for killing him.
And no one wreaks vengeance like a Viking.
We all know Ragnar could easily sit on the Iron Throne if he switched series.
Ragnar is the very epitome of the Viking Creed --
Viking warriors had no fear of death because they believed in Fate and Valhalla.
They traveled far and wide, striking fear in much of the known world of their day. Oh, if only Vikings had had t-shirts!
And of course, who is everyone's favourite Shield Maiden?
Alas, not many opportunities these days to fill that particular job description.
Oh well, we can always just kick back instead, toast some marshmallows in our Viking ship fire pit and dream of what might have been . . . .
