Season 1 of Vikings left many unresolved issues and cliffhangers - would Rollo really fight against his brother Ragnar? What will result from Ragnar's night of passion with Princess Aslaug? Can his marriage to Lagertha survive both his infidelity and the death of their daughter Gyda? In Season 2, these issues are resolved in dramatic and often unexpected ways.
At its heart, Vikings remains a family saga, following the fortunes of Ragnar, his extended family and the people he represents now that he is an earl. Ragnar's own desire to sail west, to explore new kingdoms, in alliance with King Horik, leads to a storm-tossed landing on the coast of Wessex, an important Saxon kingdom ruled by a king not unlike Ragnar.
Season 2 is all about crises: of faith, of power and of relationships. Kingdoms are at stake. Lives are at stake. Love is at stake. And all under the watchful eyes of the gods.
Rites of Passage unravels more mysteries of Viking culture for the Home Entertainment audience. My Family, My Enemy.
This behind the scenes exploration looks at the key battle sequences before intricately deconstructing every stage of preparation for the climactic Viking battle in season 2. From initial planning, to storyboards, to creating the choreography with swordmaster Richard Ryan, to the actors choreography training under Ryan, to catching the production day from behind the scenes... every aspect of the planning and execution of the key battle scene is explored by the creator, director, swordmaster, cast, and stunt coordinator.
Following the animation, a detailed deconstruction of the Saga by Viking Historians and Vikings Creator Michael Hirst is presented on-screen.
