The first half of the final season of Vikings is heating up and it may bring trouble for a fan favorite. In newly released promos for episode 6, one character in particular seems to be center stage. Read on to learn what could happen in the next episode of Vikings. There are spoilers ahead.
The banished bandits are wreaking havoc
Viewers will recall that the men that King Bjorn Ironside (Alexander Ludwig) banished into the woods in the season premiere didn’t really leave. The bandits were involved in heinous acts for Ivar the Boneless (Alex Høgh Andersen). They’ve been wreaking havoc and planning their next attack.
Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) has already faced them and lost a grandchild in the process. Bjorn and Torvi’s (Georgia Hirst) young son, Hali (Ryan Henson), was killed in a vicious attack by the bandit leader, White Hair (Kieran O’Reilly).
A promo for episode 6 means trouble for Lagertha
Based on the new promos for episode 6, Lagertha is going to face off with White Hair, the leader of the bandits. “The outcome of this battle has already been decided,” Lagertha says in the trailer. Some of the scenes show her leading her warriors against the bandits.
“I can kill you Lagertha,” the leader says to her.
“If I have to die, it is worth it,” she says in response. Lagertha will fight him on her own and even tells the others to “Stay back.”
Will Lagertha die?
This isn’t the only promo that has fans a little concerned for Lagertha. The official Vikings Instagram also has a look ahead at episode 6. The bandit leader is confronting Lagertha and things get a little heated.
“Your son banished me. Took away everything that I had. My family. My pride. My identity,” the leader says to Lagertha. “You thought I would just crawl away to the forest and die like some animal, but that is not my way. I fought for Ivar, but in other circumstances, I would have fought for Bjorn, or for you. I am Viking. Bjorn did this to me. I can never get rid of it, but now I can win back my self-respect. I can kill you Lagertha, the most famous shield-maiden in all the world. And I will.”
Fans will remember when the Seer (John Kavanagh) told Lagertha a number of cryptic details about her future. Viewers see the Seer in the promo next, and it’s definitely a reminder that everything the Seer has said will occur always seems to happen in time. On Instagram in the caption for the post reads: “I see a harvest covered in blood. A trickster whose weapon cleaves you.” The Seer in fact said these words to Lagertha many years ago.
Fans react to the promos
Fans are more than a little concerned for Lagertha’s fate at the hands of White Hair. “Bye Lagertha😔,” an Instagram user wrote.
Some viewers are worried Lagertha will die and no one seems ready for it. “If Lagertha has to die, does it have to be by the hands of this guy?” another Instagram user said.
A user brought up an excellent point that the Seer also prophesied that Lagertha would die by a son of Ragnar. “It’s been already told by the Seer that Lagertha will be killed by one of the sons of Ragnar…she won’t die at the hands of White Hair 🥴.”
Hopefully, fans will get the answers they need about Lagertha’s fate in the next episode of Vikings.
