In season 2, episode 6, Beocca and Thyra finally marry and it’s an adorable declaration of love between the two. Later when the men are gone, Thyra realizes something is wrong at the camp. She starts screaming, “Death is coming.” She alerts many people to wake up and fight the Danes that are attacking. After reuniting with Aethelflaed (Millie Brady), they run into the woods for safety but end up getting separated.

In episode 7, Beocca and the others return to the camp as they search for survivors. Beocca can’t find Thyra and he is broken at the thought of losing his wife. He calls for her desperately in obvious agony.

“No. no. Please God, let this not be true,” Beocca says. “Thyra. Thyra.” He begins to call her name over and over again. “Please…” Then he hears his wife’s voice “Beocca,” she calls to him in pure panic.

They reunite and it’s everything

They each scream each other’s names as they run towards the other. They embrace and it’s a truly sweet moment. “I thought you were dead and I wanted to die because I thought you were dead,” Beocca cries to Thyra.

The situation ends abruptly when Uhtred (Alexander Dreymon) asks about Aethelflaed. “Thyra, where’s Aethelflaed?” Uhtred asks his sister.

“You will answer,” Aethelred (Toby Regbo) says.

“Of course she will answer,” Beocca responds.

“I do not know,” Thyra tells them. “We ran, and she was gone.”

Thyra and Beocca continue to embrace and hold each other before they all must concentrate on finding Aetheflaed who is taken by the Danes.

Fans love the sweet reunion between Beocca and his wife Thyra

The encounter will always be a tearjerker for loyal fans. The moment is known to leave viewers more than a little emotional after watching.

“I cried a lot at this scene,” a Twitter user expressed.

Many other fans seem to agree. “I was in tears….such true love,” another user agreed.

“Every time I watched, I felt emotionally touched! Couple of the year goes to Beocca-Thyra,” another Twitter user wrote.

Good things don’t seem to last

The relationship between Father Beocca and Thyra is unique in that they come from totally different worlds, but somehow it works. Unfortunately, Thyra meets her end in the worst way. In season 3, Thyra is taunted by a man who ends up burning her house down around her. She’s stuck in a hole under the floorboards and can’t get out. Instead of dying in the fire as most of her family did, Thyra decides to kill herself to avoid the same fate. It’s a terrible way to end a love story that doesn’t seem to have lasted long enough.

Luckily, fans were able to experience the love between Beocca and Thyra on the series for a little while.
