History’s Vikings season four episode seven showcased a heart-pounding, gut-wrenching battle between brothers Ragnar (Travis Fimmel) and Rollo (Clive Standen) that found Ragnar on the losing end.

Rollo and Gisla have news that strengthens Rollo’s position at the French Court whilst Count Odo fails to identify his true enemies, with fatal consequences.
