DVD Wholesale Quick Overview:
Season five begins with Ivar the Boneless asserting his leadership over the Great Heathen Army, while Lagertha reigns as Queen of Kattegat. Ivar’s murder of his brother Sigurd sets the stage for vicious battles to come as Ragnar’s sons plot their next moves after avenging their father’s death. Bjorn follows his destiny into the Mediterranean Sea and Floki who is suffering from the loss of his wife Helga, takes to the seas submitting himself to the will of the Gods. This season is full of startling alliances and unbelievable betrayals as the Vikings fight to rule the world. Jonathan Rhys Meyers (“The Tudors”) joins the cast in season five as “Bishop Heahmund” along with series regulars Katheryn Winnick (“Lagertha”), Gustaf Skarsgård (“Floki”), Alexander Ludwig (“Bjorn”) and Alex Høgh Andersen (“Ivar the Boneless”).
After the bloodbath that was Season Four, which saw several major characters killed, it was a given that some reshuffling would be in order going into Season Five of “Vikings,” and that’s exactly what we got here, in the two-part premiere, “The Departed.” As befitting the episode title, those left behind continued to mourn those who passed, while others sought to move on into the next phase of their lives.
Notably, there is Floki (Gustaf Skarsgård), master boat builder, and among those who suffered the most jarring losses last season. As such, he opts to build himself a boat for once and sail off “where the Gods may take him,” much to the chagrin of Ivar (Alex Høgh Andersen), who actually sheds tears over his decision to leave. But given who we’re talking about, one has to wonder if they are of the crocodile variety- after all, losing Floki is losing a great asset to the ongoing war.
