Vikings Season 5b – A Review

Hello, my darling readers!
I’m currently catching up with my reviews on all the shows I finished within the last half year. The return of Vikings for the second part of season 5 was one that got me really excited, so let’s talk about it!

The Plot:

Ivar takes over Kattegat and declares himself king. In the meantime, Lagertha and her remaining supporters leave for East Anglia, hoping to settle there.
But of course, nothing ever goes according to plan…

The Rating:

Well, what can I say?
If you’ve loved every season up to this point, you’ll also enjoy this one.
5b is a solid season with some great battle scenes. However, in the end, it’s just more of the same. The writers try hard to show us new things, but we’ve reached a point where it all looks the same and feels the same.
Although I love the show, I am glad it will end after season six. The show honestly has reached its expiration date and it’s better to let it go instead of squeezing ten other seasons out just for the money.

Lagertha will remain one of my all-time favorite characters but even her part of the story is getting too irritating.
I am sorry if this sounds like a negative review. It’s not supposed to be like that. Ultimately I really enjoyed 5b while. I had hoped for something more revolutionary, something more different but that just wasn’t the case.
I will watch season 6, and I know I will enjoy it but I’m still glad once this is over.

A decent season but not much new stuff going on here. You’ll enjoy it but don’t expect too many surprises.

Did you watch the show? Let me know in the comments what you think!
