17 Bloody and Brutal Vikings Scenes: WHAM! POW! OUCH!

at . Comments

Consider yourselves warned, Vikings Fanatics: Yur show is about to get a lot more gruesome!

With creator/writer Michael Hirst announcing that the Vikings Season 3 kills ahead will be more shocking than last year's "Blood Eagle," I thought it would be cool to revisit some of the series' most brutal moments. Twisted, but, OH. SO. FUN.

Remember Leif's sacrifice? How about when Rollo impaled One-Eye? Yep, even Athelstan's Crucifixion made the list.

Flip through the slideshow below for a look at 17 of HISTORY's Vikings most violent scenes.

King Ecbert recently mentioned Paris and its impenetrable walls to Lagertha. That's definitely a challenge no fame-loving Viking would pass up.

It's no secret the Vikings reached Paris during Easter, and the siege that followed was monumental. I'm assuming we'll lose some of our favorite characters in that attack. Historically speaking, Ragnar, Rollo, Bjorn and a few others are safe, but what about Floki or Athelstan?

You know, the characters Hirst created specifically for the show. Those are the warriors in danger from this point forward.

With the successful battle of Mercia behind them, the Vikings return to Wessex this week. Floki remains resentful of Ragnar fighting for England, so there's trouble ahead.

As always, if you need to catch up watch Vikings online via TV Fanatic. Don't miss a moment of the most intense season yet!

Vikings Season 3 Episode 4 is titled "Scarred" and airs on Thursday, March 12.

Vikings Quotes

Ragnar: I have something to say. I did not become Earl because I aspired to be one. It came about because of other people's actions. And I did not become king out of ambition, but once again I had no choice as a result of other people's actions. But nonetheless, I am king. King Ragnar, that is my name. What does a king do Bjorn?
Bjorn: He rules.
Ragnar: Yes, good... he rules. And as a ruler, I have the last say. Me! Not you, not you and not you.

Ragnar: What do you see?
Bjorn: Power, the power of a king.
Ragnar: Power is always dangerous. It attracts the worst and corrupts the best. I never asked for power. Power is only given to those who are prepared to lower themselves to pick it up.
