‘Vikings’ season 4, episode 1 preview: Lagertha takes center stage

Lagertha -For everyone out there who loves History’s “Vikings,” we come bearing great news: The premiere for season 4 is right around the corner! The show returns Thursday night at 10:00 p.m. Eastern time, and what we’ve got for you below is a new teaser that puts one of our favorite characters front and center: Katheryn Winnick’s Lagertha. While her former marriage to Ragnar Lothbrok certainly makes her a key part of this universe, it’s far from the only reason for her notoriety … and you are going to see more and more of that as the fourth season progresses.

Just in case this teaser is not enough for you go be excited about (which would be shocking, given that this is rather awesome), we’ve got you below via TV Guide some of the first details about “A Good Treason,” the premiere episode that will feature Lagertha and Kalf going toe-to-toe, among a wide array of other things:

“In the Season 4 premiere, a dangerously ill Ragnar returns to Kattegat, where his suspected death kicks off a scramble to succeed him. Meanwhile, Lagertha engages in a power struggle with her calculating, former second in command, Kalf; Rollo betrays his heritage and remains in Frankia; and Floki pays the price for his brutality against the Christian priest.”

If you had not heard, the upcoming season is going to be different in many ways from any that has come before it. For one, it’s significantly longer. The first ten episodes are slated to air throughout this winter and spring, and the second half will air many months later, potentially in the fall.
