Welcome to the worst Vikings finale episode ever. While I completely loved the battle scene, History Channel really should have just stuck with that rather than adding on a time hop and ruining everything. Here’s the recap for Episode 10, entitled “The Last Ship” of History Channel’s Vikings Season 4 mid-season finale.

The Epic Battle Between Ragnar And Rollo

Okay, so while I hated the time jump at the end of the episode, I was completely captivated by the battle scene at the start. If History Channel had mad a longer battle scene or a shorter episode I would have been completely happy with this episode. The battle between Ragnar (Travis Fimmel) and Rollo (Clive Standen) was really hard work. But in a good way. I love how History Channel has managed to bring a more realistic version of battle to our TV screens. While I love the big production numbers with their sword fighting and battle axes lopping off body parts, it is the hand to hand combat that has shone this season. Vikings fans get to see battle up close and personal, all the sweat, the blood, the sheer determination. but, most importantly, the sheer struggle against fatigue. We saw it as Aethelwulf (Moe Dunford) tried to rescue Queen Kwenthrith (Amy Bailey) and we have seen it again between Ragnar and Rollo.
