‘The Last Kingdom’ fans reveal the ‘hardest death scene to watch’ in the series

On June 5, 2021, a fan on Reddit made a poll titled, “Hardest death scene to watch.” The options are Erik (Christian Hillborg), Ragnar (Tobias Santelmann), King Alfred (David Dawson), Thyra (Julia Bache-Wiig), and Father Beocca (Ian Hart). Over 1,900 people took part in the poll. The results were quite close when it comes to some characters. Beocca won the poll with 685 votes. Following close behind comes Thyra with 662 votes. From there, Ragnar takes third with 365 votes. Alfred has 168 votes, and Erik has only 62 votes.

Some fans weighed in with their thoughts

Some viewers even commented with their opinions as well. Thyra, Beocca’s wife, was mentioned the most. She was the sister of the main character, Uhtred (Alexander Dreymon) when he’s adopted by Earl Ragnar (Peter Gantzler). She died by suicide during a fire that she couldn’t escape.

“Thyra for sure,” a fan said. “It was so unnecessarily brutal, especially after all she’d been through. Beocca’s reaction made it so much worse, too.”

Another fan wrote, “Thyra wasn’t even my fav but her death broke me.”

Young Ragnar’s death was also hard to watch

Young Ragnar was also mentioned. He is murdered by Aethelwold (Harry McEntire) as he lays sleeping. It was a hard pill for fans to swallow, as he was a beloved character.

“But seeing Ragnar get killed in his sleep and not enter Valhalla just broke me,” a fan said.

Some fans named Halig

Halig (Gerard Kearns) was also added in the comments. He was abducted as a slave along with Uhtred. He dies in a terrible way when he’s tied to the ship as it sails in the ocean, drowning.

“Halig all day long,” a fan said. “Poor dude.”

1 fan said ‘Beocca for sure’

Father Beocca was also mentioned, which can be expected. He was killed by Wihtgar (Ossian Perret) with an arrow meant for Uhtred’s son on Uhtred’s attempt to retrieve his ancestral homeland of Bebbanburg. Beocca was hit with the arrow after moving in the way when Wihtgar pulled the trigger, saving Young Uhtred (Finn Elliot). It’s a shocking turn of events for Uhtred and fans alike.

“Beocca for sureeee!!!!!” a fan wrote.                

A number of other characters were also named, including Alfred, Erik, Clapa (Magnus Samuelsson), Leofric (Adrian Bower), Iseult (Charlie Murphy), Steapa (Adrian Bouchet), Earl Ragnar (Peter Gantzler), Aethelred (Toby Regbo), and Aethelwold. 

There are a lot of hard deaths in the hit series The Last Kingdom. Some are harder to watch than others, and fans weighed in with their thoughts on the matter, which are all over the place. Beocca won the poll, but his wife’s death trailed not far behind in the poll as well.
