Donal Logue previews King Horik in 'Vikings' season finale: 'His story was difficult and brutal'

Season two of History Channel’s acclaimed series Vikings has so far given us ten episodes of betrayal, death, and epic battles. So it’s no surprise that tonight’s finale promises to continue to deliver with that level of intensity, in an hour that is sure to leave viewers with their jaws on the floor.

As King Horik, Donal Logue has had a pretty rough go of it in his struggle to overtake Ragnar and gain ultimate power. While “The Lord’s Prayer” finds Ragnar and King Horik returning to Ragnar’s home, Kattegat, don’t expect things to go smoothly — this is the Vikings world, after all.

“Ragnar is Ragnar, and Horik’s put him in a really tough spot,” shared Logue when he spoke to EW earlier this week. “He has to do something.”

Check out our full interview with Logue as he previews Horik’s actions in tonight’s finale, and be sure to check out an exclusive clip below.

History Channel's 'Vikings' gets third season

History has ordered a 10-episode third season of its hit drama Vikings to air in 2015.

Vikings has taken viewers by storm and has established itself as one of the most compelling, visually stunning dramas on television,” Dirk Hoogstra, EVP and general manager for History and H2, said in a statement.

History’s first original scripted series is currently only four episodes into its second season and is averaging 3.4 million total viewers.

Production on season 3 begins this summer.

Vikings airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET on History.

Alexander Ludwig on his real-life 'Vikings' legend: 'What he did was incredible'

All hail Bjorn Ironside! The first-born son of Ragnar and Lagertha makes his debut Thursday night — well, his second debut — on History’s second season of Vikings, as Alexander Ludwig takes over the role of the older, stronger Bjorn (played in season 1 by Nathan O’Toole).

You’ll recognize Ludwig from breakout roles in The Hunger Games and Lone Survivor, but it’s his new gig as the quiet and obedient son of Travis Fimmel’s raging Ragnar that should make Ludwig pop onto your screen. Before Thursday night’s episode (10 p.m. ET on History), Ludwig stopped by EW’s office to chat about his latest role as a lost Norse legend.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Was it difficult transitioning into an already established show like Vikings?
ALEXANDER LUDWIG: It’s been very, very effortless, and great to be a part of a show that’s already been established as successful, because you don’t have to worry about what’s going to happen. But I’ve been so happy with the way I’ve been received by the fans and I think they’re really excited to see what happens with Bjorn. READ FULL STORY

'Vikings' season finale: Mysterious beauty tempts Ragnar -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO AND INTERVIEW

Season 1 of History’s first-ever scripted series, Vikings, comes to a close this Sunday, and EW has your exclusive first look at a mysterious new character introduced in the episode – one who could spell trouble for Viking hero Ragnar Lothbrok’s (Travis Fimmel) marriage to Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick).

Last week on Vikings, all was not well in the formerly blissful union of Ragnar and Lagertha. Seeking answers from the gods in the death of his unborn son during the clan’s traditional pilgrimage to Uppsalla, Ragnar also began to wonder who would be the mother of the many sons the gods promised him if it wasn’t his wife.

Enter Princess Aslaug, played by Alyssa Sutherland. We meet Aslaug when Ragnar’s men, journeying from Kattegat to Gotaland (modern day Sweden) to resolve a land dispute, stumble across her bathing naked in a stream. She demands an apology from Ragnar, and the chemistry between the pair is immediate and undeniable.

Who is this woman? Will Ragnar remain faithful to his wife Lagertha through their troubles? We asked Sutherland to weight in on her character and what to expect from the episode. Check out what she had to say, as well as two exclusive clips from the Vikings season 1 finale, below.

The first trailer for History's 'Vikings' series is here! -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

HISTORY-VIKINGS

History scored earlier this year with a dramatic, mini-series retelling of the legendary drama between the dueling Hatfield and McCoy clans, and the cable network is once again dipping back into legend again with a new series Vikings, which will debut early next year. Following our first-look photo, EW has an exclusive sneak peek at the series — starring Gabriel Byrne, Travis Fimmel, Jessalyn Gilsig, Gustaf Skarsgard (yes, brother of Alexander and son of Stellan), Clive Standen, and Katheryn Winnick — via the debut trailer.

The 30-second promotional clip is a smorgasbord of beards, long hair, shields, weapons, and general savagery that — depending on how it all pans out in series format — looks like it could be quite the juicy, battle-filled dive into a long-gone world. In previous press releases, History calls the series — which is created and written by The Tudors creator Michael Hirst — “high on adventure, exploration, conflict, warfare, and bloodshed,” as well as a “family saga.” Specifically, the actions follows historical figure Ragnar Lothbrok (Fimmel) as he rises up the ranks to become King of the Viking tribes.

Promises the trailer: “A storm is coming.” Indeed. See for yourself here:
