On the 10th day of Viking, we give you 10 things all Vikings fans do. Celebrate the 12 Days of Vikings with us, and come back every other day to see what Vikings moment or character we’ll be celebrating next!
10. Miss Athelstan
The loss of Ragnar’s best friend and confidante is still felt across the Vikings community, and for some his death came as a great shock. Even though it’s been many episodes, one can’t help but wonder what Athelstan would think of the current affairs. Would he have gone with Ragnar or stayed behind when he disappeared? These things we’ll never know, but they’re certainly interesting to think about.
9. Wait to see Lagertha’s new hairstyles
It may not be one of the major plot points in Vikings, but one thing is certain: every episode brings new and exciting hair artistry to Lagertha’s character. There seem to be no bounds to how many braids can fit on one person’s head in the most beautiful assortment of arrangements. For a detailed look, check out 11 of Lagertha’s hairstyles.
8. Constantly wonder what Ragnar is up to
Ragnar, although one of our main protagonists, has never been an easy book to read. He’s constantly a wild card, and as a fan, you never truly know where he’s going to go or what he’s going to do. It definitely makes the show exciting, never knowing what’s truly going on inside his head.
7. Root for Bjorn
Bjorn is one of those characters that you can’t help but root for. We’ve seen him grow from boy to man, and the amazing journey he’s taken to get to where he is now. It’s hard not to want to see him succeed, and become just as great, if not greater, than his father ever was.
6. Laugh at Floki
Vikings doesn’t have a lot of comedic relief, but Floki steps in every once and a while to be that kooky character we loved in the first season. He’s definitely a unique fellow, and the way he looks at the world can be sometimes quite amusing.
5. Count the days until new episodes
After every episode ends, it becomes a waiting game until the next one. What happened after the cliffhanger? What are our favourite characters up to now? There are always so many questions after an episode that the thirst for another is only heightened. Make sure you’re watching new Season 4 episodes Wednesdays at 9 E/P.
4. Wish you could pull off Viking style
There’s something about their punk-rock hairstyles and gritty armour that really makes you want to step into their shoes, if only for the outfit. Not sure how well armour and a Viking weapon would go at your workplace Monday morning…
3. Wait to see Josh Donaldson
Everyone knows that the Blue Jays’ Bringer of Rain is going to be on Vikings, and we’re all waiting in anticipation of his debut. The sports star has the Viking hair to fit in, and we can’t wait to see what type of shenanigans he causes on the show.
2. Hope to visit the landscape of Vikings
If the stories and characters aren’t enough for you, Vikings has amazing landscapes and nature to look at. The types of places that a person would definitely want to see in real life. The filming is done in such a variety of beautiful places that there’s so much rich background and scenery to enjoy.
1. Love every minute of it
Every time the Vikings charge in battle, or there’s a heated conversation between Ragnar and Rollo, a Vikings fan is there. There’s so much about Vikings to love and enjoy, you wouldn’t be able to choose just one thing. The show is so full of rich excitement that Vikings fans have watched episodes more than once to fully enjoy it.
