Good thing Ragnar Lothbrok isn't shy. In "Eye For an Eye," the upcoming episode of History's "Vikings," King Ecbert asks the Viking leader to join him in a private pool to negotiate peace between Ragnar's invading warriors and the Anglo-Saxons.
"Now we are equal," Ecbert (Linus Roache) says after Ragnar (Travis Fimmel) strips and slips into the water. "We can talk together honestly, man to man."
Uh-huh ... that's one thing they could do. (Really, check out the preview video above.)
Anyway, "Eye For an Eye" is notable for more than Ecbert's Dark Ages bathhouse. Watch for Ragnar's long-awaited reunion with his former wife, Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick), and their son, Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig), as well as a renewed rivalry between Ragnar and Gotaland ruler Jarl Borg (Thorbjorn Harr). (See videos below.)
Jarl Borg rules Ragnar's village of Kattegat, leaving Ragnar's brother, Rollo, to defend his family while running from Jarl Borg's men.
Come back here after the episode to hear more from George Blagden, who plays Athelstan. The former monk has his own troubles in the episode.
