'Vikings' Season 3 Spoilers, Cast News: Friend and Brother Questions the King's Political Actions

Poised to offer more doses of intrigue, sword action and drama, History Channel's hit historical TV series "Vikings" will air this week with yet another exciting episode on its brand new Season 3.

Entitled "Scarred," tonight's segment will voice out the questions that fans have all been wondering about: What is exactly is Ragnar's (Travis Fimmel) plan when he struck an alliance with the Christians?

Perhaps the fitting person to do this is the eccentric yet dangerously cunning Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard). Kattegat's renowned boat builder and the King's close friend was furious with the alliance made between the Vikings and King Ecbert (Linus Roache) which, as followers of the show remembered, killed many of his countrymen.

Floki was also angered when he found out Athestan's (George Blagden) role in Ragnar's affinity with the Anglo-Saxons.

This issue will further be discussed in "Scarred" as the recently released sneak peek featured Rollo (Clive Standen) confronting his King brother about his decisions to forge allegiance with the English.

"Floki says you have betrayed our gods to serve a Christian king and a Christian god," Rollo said.

"Unlike Floki," the wise leader calmly replied. "I do not think I speak for the gods. All I know is my desires and ambitions for my people. It never changed."

Rollo listened intently to the Kattegat leader as he continued: "Now that I am a king, I must strive to bring them about."

"Floki threatens me with Odin. But I will not be ashamed to meet the god, face to face," Ragnar declared.
