Vikings Wiki

Season 2 of Vikings premiered on February 27, 2014 on History in Canada and in the United States and concluded on May 1, 2014, consisting of 10 episodes. Below is a brief review of what happened in the second season of Vikings.


The hit scripted drama series centers on Ragnar Lothbrok, a restless young warrior and family man who longs to find and conquer new lands across the sea and claim the spoils as his own. Now he is an Earl, allied with King Horik. With more power than ever before, his desire to sail west and explore new kingdoms remains unquenchable.

Yet there's a heavy price to pay for Ragnar's ascent to greatness. Season 2 brings crises of faith, of power, and of relationships. Brothers rise up against one another. Loyalties shift from friend to foe, and unlikely alliances are formed in the name of supremacy. Ragnar's indiscretions threatens his marriage to Lagertha, tearing him and his beloved son apart. Plots are hatched, scores are settled, blood is spilled... all under the watchful eyes of the gods.
