Vikings (2013): S01E02 – Wrath of the Northmen


Introduction

Vikings is a historical drama television series, written and created by Michael Hirst for the television channel History.

The series broadly follows the exploits of the legendary Viking chieftain Ragnar Lothbrok and his crew, and in later seasons those of his sons.

The first season premiered on 03 March 2013 in Canada and concluded on 28 April 2013, consisting of nine episodes.

Outline

After gathering volunteers, Ragnar, Rollo, and Floki embark on an unauthorised raid to the west. Lagertha violently objects to Ragnar’s refusal to take her along. Earl Haraldson has the blacksmith who forged Ragnar’s anchor killed. At sea the crew are caught in a storm, which a manic Floki interprets as Thor proving his ship unsinkable. On land, monks see the ominous sign of a cloud shaped like a dragon. After a tense voyage, Ragnar’s men land on the coast of England, near the monastery of Lindisfarne, which they proceed to sack. They kill most of the monks and capture the rest to take back as slaves, including the young Athelstan, whom Ragnar protects from death at Rollo’s hands.
