“The Choice” – as this Thursday’s episode of Vikings (History, 10/9c) is titled — appears to be Floki’s.
In the penultimate episode of Season 2, Ragnar’s warriors (which really should be the name of a band, amiright?) march on to King Ecbert’s villa, only to receive a surprisingly vicious welcome.
Once the dust (and the blood) settles, King Horik (played by Donal Logue) — as seen in this exclusive clip — sets out to convince Floki (Gustaf Skarsgård) to betray his closest, but increasingly estranged, friend and ally, Ragnar. How will Floki respond to the king’s “proposition”?

One thing is for certain: Regardless of Floki’s choice, next week’s season finale will revolve around “a showdown between King Horik and Ragnar,” Vikings creator Michael Hirst told TVLine.
