The season premiere of Vikings saw ambitious warlord Ivar the Boneless (Alex Høgh) and the army of Northman lay siege to the town of York. Every action has an equal, opposite reaction, and ascendant Saxon Bishop Heahmund (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) will launch a counterattack on Ivar’s forces in this Wednesday’s episode of Vikings. EW is excited to share an exclusive first look at this first face-off between the two wild-eyed warriors.
Vikings airs on History Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET.
