Welcome to the recap for Episode 17, entitled “The Great Army,” of Season 4 Part 2 of Vikings.
Poor Bjorn Ironside (Alexander Ludwig), just when he finally gets to the Mediterranean and can claim greater fame than his father by travelling further than any other Viking ever, Ragnar (Travis Fimmel) goes and dies on him. Thanks to Odin’s (André Eriksen) visit in Episode 16 of Vikings, Bjorn now has to turn around and head on home to Kattegat.
On the way home, Rollo (Clive Standen) is given the choice to return to Frankia or be killed once he sets foot on Kattegat soil. No surprise Rollo chooses Frankia, even if his wife is as feral as wounded cat when he does get home. Needless to say their reunion is so heated History Channel isn’t even game to translate the words coming out of Gisla’s mouth.
