Vikings season 4 episode 17 was released a few days ago, meaning that fans are now eagerly waiting for the next episode to arrive. The previous episode was a rather interesting one as in it, Ubbe, Sigurd and Ivar gathered an army to avenge Ragnar. And now, the next episode is said to focus on how the army will make its way to Northumbria.

So without any further due, here is what is expected to happen in Vikings season 4 episode 18.

Vikings Season 4 Episode 18 Spoilers 

Vikings season 4 episode 18 is titled as “Revenge” and as its title suggests, the brothers will take revenge for their father. The Great Heathen Army, which was gathered in the previous episode, will land on the coast of Northumbria, which indicates that Ragnar’s plan is finally coming into action. Ivar and his brothers are reportedly said to sail to Northumbria to battle King Ecbert. For those who don’t know, King Ecbert is the very person who killed Ragnar and destroyed the Viking village a few years ago.

Ivar And His Brothers To Deal With King of Northumbria First

However, judging from what happened in past few episodes, it seems that Ivar and his brothers aren’t going to rush and attack King Ecbert. Instead of it, they will deal with the cruel King of Northumbria first. If this turns out to be the case, then episode 19 will focus on how the brothers will deal with King of Northumbria, and episode 20 will feature the great battle of  Great Heathen Army against King Ecbert.

Vikings Season 4 Episode 18

The synopsis of Vikings season 4 episode 19 state that King Ecbert and Prince Aethelwulf are going to “plan the defense of the realm.” This suggests that Northumbria won’t go down easily, at least not without a fight. As for the synopsis of episode 20, they suggest that Prince Aethelwulf will get caught in the master plan of the Vikings, while Ecbert will have a plan of his own, so he will stay behind.

Ivar To Kill Lagertha? 

On the other hand, the current queen of Kattegat, Lagertha received a prophecy which revealed how she will die. According to it, she will get killed by one of Ragnar’s sons, and her death will be a violent one. For those who don’t know, Lagertha became the queen of Kattegat after Aslaug was killed. This indicates that Ivar will be one who will kill Lagertha, considering the fact that he was really close to his mother, Aslaug.

Vikings Season 4 Episode 18 Release Date

Vikings season 4 episode 18 will be released on January 18, 2017. Let us know if you’re excited for it or not in the comments below.


  1. Ecbert didn’t kill Ragnar. Do some research writer. He did destroy the viking settlement. But he handed Ragnar over to King Aella, which is what Ragnar asked him to do because Ecbert said he could not kill Ragnar. He loved Ragnar. Aella had Ragnar beaten, humiliated and then dropped into the viper pit to die. Ecbert could not do this though Ragnar begged him to. Instead Ecbert journeyed in disguise to see his friend Ragnar die. He saw Ragnar as a kindred spirit, almost a brother.
