Play Now Vikings Season 2 Episode 2 “Invasion” Overall No. 11
Four years later, Ragnar finally announces plans to raid England. Horik and Borg arrive, but his resentment leads Ragnar to break the pact with Borg. Ragnar accepts Rollo back into his family, but forbids him from raiding. The Seer tells Ragnar that his sons will be more famous than him. Ragnar and Horik’s men set sail for England, but a violent storm throws them off course. While exploring, they are ambushed by soldiers and several men are killed including one of Horik’s sons. Athelstan saves Ragnar’s life during the fight. They learn that they are in Wessex, which is ruled by King Ecbert, a man described as similar to Ragnar.
Four years have now passed and life is good for Ragnar and his group. Aslag has given him sons and is again pregnant but she’s not too pleased with Ragnar’s roving eye. Ragnar consults the seer about what the future holds for his sons, particularly Bjorn who he fears he may never see again. He also announces that they will again sail to England, joined by King Horek and Jarl Borg. Horek has decided against Borg raiding with them and while Ragnar has forgiven Rollo, he too is forbidden to join the raiding party. The trip to England is difficult and a storm pushes them further south to the land of Wessex ruled by King Ecbert.
