Viking Ragnar Lothbrok is a young farmer and family man who is frustrated by the policies of Earl Haraldson, his local chieftain who sends his Viking raiders east to the Baltic states and Russia, whose residents are as poor as the Norsemen. Ragnar wants to head west, across the ocean, to discover new civilizations. With assistance from his friend Floki, Ragnar builds a faster, sleeker fleet of boats to help him make it to the Western world. Through the years Ragnar, who claims to be a direct descendant of the god Odin, continues to struggle with Earl until the two face each other in a final battle for supremacy. Following that, Ragnar goes on a search for new lands to conquer.
In a strong Season 4 that’s nonetheless progressed on a seemingly predictable track, this leap forward in time in midseason serves to remind us both of how "Vikings" is very much about the inexorable sweep of history, and how the series, at its best, is unafraid to get swept along with it. Here, Ragnar’s a king, but dressed like a wanderer, and he’s more alive on screen than he’s been all season, our traditional cluelessness about his motives and plans only amplified by the time-jump and his long absence and sudden return. There’s the thrilling sense that Ragnar has a plan, that he’s learned some new lessons in his mysterious travels. Masterfully, the midseason episode “The Last Ship” leaves us needing to know just what those lessons were.--Dennis Perkins, A.V. Club, April 21, 2016
