Watch out guys, Vikings is getting real. The penultimate episode sounds pretty emotionally exhausting, and they’re definitely laying on the multiple plot threads. I’m confident they’ll handle it amazingly, though, and I’m prepared to be at the edge of my seat the entire time.
Catch this episode of Vikings—next Sunday the 21th on History at 10/9c.
