Vikings Season 4. What Do You Expect From Floki?

Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard)

Vikings Season 4. Floki is a complicated character, who has had ups and downs. What do you expect from Floki in the upcoming season?

Floki is a boat builder and incorrigible trickster, but he was Ragnar Lothbrok’s eccentric and closest friend. He was introduced in “Rites of Passage” when Ragnar brought his son to visit him. Ragnar described Floki as shy.

Clever and very loyal, he secretly designs and builds a new generation of Viking longboats for Ragnar’s voyage across the ocean westward.
But travel brought new religious and cultural ideas, and Floki dislikes them.

Ragnar’s growing friendship with a Christian priest, Athelstan, was poisoning his character. He loved his gods and was afraid of this new world. He was jealous of Athelstan too.

In the end, he decided to murder Athelstan, but this even worsened the environment. Ragnar knows what he did and is absolutely suspicious.

Finally, Viking defeat at the gates of Paris upsets completely Floki. How is it possible that his gods have not helped him and protected Ragnar’s people? Is the Christian God more powerful?

Floki is completely lost and nobody trusts on him, not even his wife. Season 3 finished with the image of Ragnar looking defiantly at Floki. However, Floki’s look was enigmatic. Then, what do we expect from Floki?

I think Floki has two options. To keep on living in the old world and remain in Kattegat. For a Viking, this possibility meant the death, since they lived for pillages and adventures, or to adjust to the new world and dialogue with other cultures. However, I see this last possibility almost impossible for his personality.

And you? What do you think about Floki’s future? Tell us your opinion now.
