After the History Channel stopped producing real history documentaries and started focussing on pseudo-scientific studies (UFOs and such) as well as pseudo documentaries (Pawn Stars) which they are very successful with by the way, they also tried out actual TV shows. The drama series Vikings is one of them. In March 2016, season 5 was green-lit.
With season, the number of each has risen. While previous seasons had 10 episodes resp. season 1 had only 9 episodes, season 4 consists of 20 episodes. But the season had been split up: The episodes 1-10 aired from Febraury 2016 till April 2016 and the final 10 episodes aired from November 2016 till Febraury 2017. Similar to the previous seasons, season 4 was censored in the US.

Recap only in the TV Version. The Extended Version only contains a small black screen.

Alternate footage for a simple reason: In the TV Version, Bjorns conversation with Ragnar ends here while Ragnar makes a further comment in the Extended Version. For some reason, the TV Version shows Bjorn on the right side while he is on the left in the Extended Version.
In the TV Version, Ragnar leaves the room and closes the door. Then Bjorn from behind. After a little while, he turns his head to the left. The end.
In the Extended Version, Ragnar leaves as well but he does not fully close the door and puts his head back in for another comment.
Ragnar: "You've become a man in my abscence. I'm proud of you."
Not until then, Ragnar leaves. Then Bjorn one last time and that is it.

Bjorn insignificantly longer in the TV Version.
