Who are the 'bad guys' in the Vikings TV show? Looking for a gift for someone (full explanation w/i)

Turns out I'm an idiot! I posted the below in another forum, thankfully I was politely directed here. So here goes...

I really wish I had a way with words, I could have come up with a much better for the discussion starter than the rubbish I just wrote!

Basically, I have a family member who loves the Vikings show, they say it reminds them of the old country where they grew up. I'd really like to get them a present that relates to the tv show, like a tshirt with one of the dudes from the show or something officially related. I know they'd find it funny if it was related to one of the bad guys from the show. This is why I'm here asking!

I'm not familar with the show, don't own a tv and don't live in the country where it's distributed (I know, I'm on the internet, there's no excuse!) but I also rarely have the time to sit down and enjoy some quality tv. It sounds like I'd enjoy the show but for now I'll have to ask for your opinion and help, if you'd humour me!

Any suggestions are welcomed, and if there's a way to share the final purchase here along with a picture of the giftee, I will! Thanks in advance.

Why is Lagertha aged at 5A's ending?

Perhaps in her head she was always a brave warrior but we see her as she really is through Bjorn's eyes?

Anyone?

First of all why are all the pages on Vikings locked?? There’s so many things that need to be updated and so many incorrect spellings and information that it’s ridiculous . You can’t even change or fix anything for it to make sense because every page is locked... the Vikings wikia needs serious work done too it and someone that knows everything about the show to deal with it... I’d be more and happy to update and change info on each and every one of the characters/ pages their are so that it’s updated and at least correct.

Vikings Season 4 Episode 17

Is it only me, or did anyone else also see Floki's snot when he took a bite from his apple when he was talking to Helga in the tent? Because of the cold conditions, one may think that it was part of the script, but I strongly doubt it. Season 4 Episode 17 (elapsed time - about 09.21)

Vikings actors and their Scandinavian accents

Okay, I'm sorry but I have to say this and hopefully will be picked up by the production.... After watching this show for the past 5 seasons, I have to say
ENOUGH WITH THE STUPID FAKE SCANDINAVIAN ACCENTS ALREADY!!! I'm not alone on this. If the actors would just speak normally with their own accents it would be a nice change without taking away from the fact that you're supposed to be Vikings! It may not be that bad if the actors are actually able to reproduce the accent, but what comes out of their mouths is certainly not what they're supposed to sound like, with perhaps the exception of Gustaf Skarsgard, the actor who plays Floki since he's actually Swedish! Take for instance the guy who plays Ivar the Boneless. It sounds as if his gonads are being squeezed in a vice every time he says something! I could go on but I rest my case. Please Vikings production, ditch those painful sounding fake Viking accents, thank you!!!

Vikings Theme "If I Had a Heart' Orchestrated

Hey guys, I'm super psyched for the release of Season 5!! I just did a cover of the intro theme. I know there's no beating the original, but I thought it would be cool to explore what it would sound like played by an orchestra. You can listen here: https://youtu.be/Q4nCfEUShOE

Would love to know what you think :D

Season 5 trailer analysis

So, I could not find any real analysis of the new trailer so I thought I could do one myself.

02:25 VIKINGS Season 5 TRAILER Comic Con (2017) History Series-2
So we open with a narration about Ivar and see images of Sigurd's funeral. So we all know Ivar has made quite a name for himself, so I think this is just to cement that Ivar really is one of the central characters now. I think this season (atleast part 1) will be about how Ivar really makes a name for himself. Ivar has been given some traits from Eirik Bloodaxe (who I really hope will show up in the series) and Harald Wartooth, two viking kings know for how crazy and bloodthirsty they where. The Eirik Bloodaxe is probably the most important influence because he was so violent and crazy that it led to him being deposed. So Ivar's reputation could be both an asset and a obsticle.
We then see flashes of a battle in some sort of city, riders with crusader-like crosses on heathersheilds and Heahmund arriving in a ruined settlement. It's worth noting that we get very few glimses of the English plot and the focus is the family drama. I guess the ruined settlment is Ecbert's capital and Heahmund arriving their upon hearing the news of the defeate. There will be clashes between the English and the Norse, but we only get's hints about it. We see Aethelwulf with Wessex soliders and Heahmund's crusader-esque soldiers but we don't see any real evidence of their relationship. 
Then we go into the family drama. The trailer is cut so Ivar and Hvitserk appear standoffish to Ubbe. It would seem the death of Sigurd has ruined the relationship between Ivar and Ubbe. It's possible Ubbe and Hvitserk are scared of him. Hvitserk mayby joins Ivar's side out of fear rather than lust for vengence? Ivar states that there will be a war between brothers and that he wants to be king of Kattegat. Then we see some bearded man manhandle Astrid. Astrid is hardly seen in the trailer. Mayby she get's killed, but Vikings has used the same trick with Floki in season 2. I think there is a possibility of whatever Astrid does will have an important or suprising part of the story and that is why she is left out. 
Lagertha then states that "Ivar and Harald are coming". We see Ivar and Harald togheter. It seems Harald supports Ivar as king of Kattegat. We also see a new, seaside settlement. Is this the seat of Harald? Harald talks about how Lagertha's years are numbered. He's talking to a young man. Is it Ivar? Has Harlad planted the seed in Ivar to make himself king and not just seek vengence. Is this the cause of the split among Ivar and Ubbe? His royal ambitions?
Lagertha and Ubbe seem to form some sort of mutual alliance against Ivar and Harald. Björn states that a civil war only can bring tragedy. Is it possible that Björn actually has no ambitions to be king but tries to talk sense into his younger brothers because they are fighting over the crown? What speaks against this is the argument between Ivar and Björn, which makes it all out to be about revenge. Or mayby this is just Ivar's rationalisation.
At several points, Halfdan is seen with Björn and Lagertha. Has he suddenly switched sides? I will return to that. We see Ivar and Hvitserk leading a force with many of Harald's warriors among them, but no Harald. On the other side is Lagertha, Torvi, Björn, Halfdan, Ubbe and a new character. Later we see these forces charge each other. But where is Harald? This is my theory: they are all being played. I can't really see any reason why Halfdan would go against his brother. If he wanted to be king he could have just let Ellisif kill Harald. But he did not. Why did he join Björn's new Mediterranean expedition? To get close to Björn and Lagertha. Harald has manipulated Ivar to further the conflict to weaken Kattegat. He hopes that Lagetha and Ragnar's sons will kill each other so he and Halfdan can conquer Kattegat and complete their Pokédex. Halfdan is fighting to take out Ivar and Hvitserk. 
We then see some shoot of the new Mediterranean adventures, shots of Floki that looks straight out of The Raven Flies, a swamp settlement which possibly could be the swampy East Anglia of the viking age and a close up of Judith. What we don't see is any Rollo. A earlier trailer showed us some frankish soldiers but we have no indication that Rollo will play a large role from now on. Or mayby he will be a joker in the deck. The last shot shows Floki seeing a vulcanic eruption while Lagertha states that the end of their world is here. This a clear nod to Surtr, who is stongly connected on Iceland. But what end is Lagertha talking about? Since Iceland has been discovered and Harald Finehair is a character it's possible it refers to the end of the de-centralized and anarchic society in Norway before the unification. The people who prefered freedom from the king or needed to escape set up camp in Iceland: the first wild west. This gives the Icelandic images a new meaning. A new chapter in the viking age has begun.

Size of the great army

I have gone through all of the pages regarding the Great Heathen Army and in many cases it says the army is over 6000 warriors. While Ivar wanted to assemble an army twice the size of the one Ragnar took to Paris, the only real information of the size of the army is the intell given to Aethelwulf that there are over 4000 vikings. I have yet to find any other concrete evidence that they would have more than about 4000 people.
For the Paris raid, we have mostly behind the scenes references are behind the scenes references. All of them states a 100 ships. The average longship would carry about 30 men. There where larger and smaller longships but for the sake of simplicity I count 1 ship = 30 people. So the 100 ships that went to Paris would be 3000 men give or take. As there is no other reference to the number and the ships once they have actually assembled the army, I would have to say that around 4000 is the only number of the force that can be supported as anything other than wide speculation.
