Uhtred’s children by Gisela will have a large role to play in season 4 of The Last Kingdom. The official social media for the series recently shared images of some all-new members of the cast in the new season. Uhtred’s children are highlighted as some of the new and fresh faces.

Uhtred’s daughter, Stiorra, played by Ruby Hartley, will be part of season 4. In the introduction image, she’s hanging out by an open gate and looking so like her mother it’s uncanny. She carries a knife strapped to her dress, possibly ready for anything.

Uhtred shares a moment with his son

Fans also get a look at young Uhtred (Elliot). He wears a cross and has a scratch under his right eye. In an all-new teaser for the upcoming season, Uhtred speaks to his son, Uhtred and they share a heart to heart.

The scene starts with Uhtred looking at his son in a very serious way. “I know what it is to be ripped from one life to live another,” Uhtred tells young Uhtred. “And I know it will make you stronger.”

“Perhaps my faith is being tested. Perhaps that’s what it is,” his son replies.

“You see this?” Uhtred asks in regards to the amber stone attached to his sword. “This was my father’s. One day it will be yours. It is fate.”

Uhtred and his son could come to disagree on things

It’s clear from the promo material that Uhtred’s son is a Christian. This comes into direct conflict with Uhtred’s own beliefs, since he follows what the Danes believe and is considered a pagan. Disagreeing on something so important in that time was a huge deal and it could certainly cause problems between father and son in the future. Can they put their differences aside and be a family? It would be nice to see Uhtred reunite with his children without endless conflict between them.

Although it may be hard for Uhtred to accept, he must find a way to bond with his son. It sounds like he’s well on his way to doing just that if this new teaser is anything to go on. Uhtred deserves some happiness every now and then, and hopefully he’ll find that with his children in season 4.

Fans are more than ready for the all-new season and what it might bring with it. Many familiar faces are returning, as well as some new faces to add to the mix. During this time of quarantine and self-isolation, season 4 of The Last Kingdom couldn’t be coming at a better time. We’ll keep you updated on everything to do with season 4 as it happens.
