Embattled Viking leader Ragnar’s (Travis Fimmel) unexpectedly returns a hated man, and he openly challenges his grown sons to kill him if they wish to assume the throne.
In the heart-pounding first look, Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) is preparing for battle, and this time, she’s training her protégé, Astrid (Josefin Asplund), who’s become a vital part of Lagertha’s life.
“Lagertha, shield-maiden and warrior, teaches her young pupil and protege, Astrid, some of the arts of war. And then, perhaps, she will go on to teach her some other arts, too,” creator Michael Hirst tells ET of their burgeoning romantic relationship.
Vikings returns Wednesday, Nov. 30 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on History Channel.
