Bjorn Ironside has ambitions for the Kingdom of Kattegat, he dreams of peace and prosperity, but the fates have a different plan for the new King. A threat is looming, an enemy is resurgent–so much more ruthless than the rest. Lagertha too has dreams, to bury her sword and return to the simple life. But as enemy forces gather, Bjorn and Lagertha will rise to the challenge, because they are Viking heroes and can never surrender.
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
