The second half of season four of History’s Vikings premieres on Wednesday, November 30, 2016 at 9pm ET/PT with an episode titled ‘The Outsider.’ And as the premiere date approaches, History’s releasing short character videos including one focusing on Rollo, played by Clive Standen (soon to be seen headlining the new action series, Taken). The three and a half minute video provides a refresher on events from the first half of the season as well as a look forward at what to expect from Rollo over the second half of the fourth season.

The Plot: After being defeated in a monumental battle in Paris against his brother Rollo (Standen), Ragnar (Travis Fimmel) disappeared following his humiliating loss. Vikings then took an enormous leap forward during the midseason finale, time-jumping to a new era in its characters’ lives.

In the midseason premiere, Ragnar’s reappearance in Kattegat triggers a chain of events no one – except the Seer – could have ever imagined. He unexpectedly arrives home to see what has become of his sons and to handle unfinished business in Wessex with King Ecbert (Linus Roache). Meanwhile, Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) plans a power play in Kattegat and Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig) prepares to fulfill his long-held dream to explore the Mediterranean in a sleek new boat built for him by Floki (Gustaf Skarsgård).
