Excited for The Winter King Episode 4? The Winter King is a brand new series on MGM Plus and Sky TV. The series is based on the beloved book trilogy The Warlord Chronicles by Bernard Cornwell, also known for the books behind the hit Netflix series The Last Kingdom.
The Winter King is the story of King Arthur. However, it tells the story from another perspective. Arthur is not King, but the bastard son of Uther Pendragon, High King of Britain.
The show opens with a dramatic scene of Prince Mordred, Uther’s heir, dying at the hands of his half-brother Arthur after an attack by the Saxons. When Arthur fails to save his half-brother from being murdered, King Uther blames his illegitimate son and banishes him from Britain. Now, I absolutely love this book series, and I’m so excited to cover this show.
The Winter King Episode Recap
Before we dive into The Winter King Episode 4, let’s quickly recap and review the previous episode. As any show based on a beloved book series must worry about, The Winter King had a lot of pressure on their shoulders to create a faithful adaptation of a story that so many people cherish.
They have made quite creative decisions on how to structure this show by taking off-screen scenes and making them flush for the audience.
We only hear second-hand stories of how Arthur was banished. And the death of Prince Mordred. So, taking these off-stage scenes and using them as a tool to write the show was not only incredibly creative, but also the pressure to create a scene for a scene adaptation of the books.
A kingdom without an heir is a cursed kingdom, and so Uther feels the pressure of his son’s death and the message it sends to other kings. He beats the defeated Arthur in his rage, nearly ending Arthur’s life.
Uther used this opportunity to send a message to the other kings whom he had summoned to the capital of Dumnonia. Uther had called for an army long before this tragedy, and many kings had failed to send fighting men to their High King.
Now, the prince and heir to the High King of Britain has been killed by Saxon invaders whom the other kings refused to fight. Uther is willing to end his bastard son’s life for what he perceives as a betrayal of their cause to set an example of how serious the matter is.
A lot more happened in the previous episodes, but now let’s discuss when The Winter King Episode 4 will be released and what will happen in it.
