Vikings fans were sent into meltdown when a leaked photo appeared to reveal Lagertha’s (played by Kathryn Winnick) death.
Now, fans have been speculating as to who kills her and a shock name has been suggested by fans on Reddit.
One fan introduced the theory: “This brings me back to a post I made right after we hear Hvitserk’s fate from the Seer’s prophecy. I back then predicted that Hvitserk will be the one to kill Lagertha since ‘He will accomplish what those before him have failed to accomplish.’
“People thought that him killing Lagertha isn’t that big of a deal, but when we think about it, it really is.”
It makes the most sense for why Hvitserk will do it though
Another fan agreed: “It makes the most sense for why Hvitserk will do it though. Ivar will be in Russia. Bjorn will 100% not do it. Ubbe is standing at the front row watching a ship departure with shields surrounding it that are Lagertha’s which is why I believe it’s her funeral.”
One fan was unsure about how he would kill Lagertha: “As I said, the beach battle comes after Lagertha’s death so Hvitserk I think will kill her but I don’t know how.
“I doubt Bjorn will exile Hvitserk so if he is exiled, it’ll be when Ubbe is ruling and when Bjorn has left Kattegat for some time. I don’t know how and where Bjorn’s life will be saved by Erik so that’ll be interesting too.”
Hvitserk star Marco Ilso has been seen on Instagram appearing to be preparing for a battle and it could the one in which he kills Lagertha.
The leaked image that started the rumours shows an emotional funeral pyre scene.
In the photo, the death is being commemorated with a large boat adorned with many decorations and countless flowers.
On closer inspection, the boat can be seen to hold what looks like Lagertha’s famous shield, which she has used in a number of wars.
Fans on Reddit began theorising when Lagertha could die in the upcoming episodes, which one suggesting it would happen just before her directorial debut on the show.
The image may have revealed another time jump for the historical show, as characters seem to look older.
The image includes the characters Ubbe (Jordan Patrick Smith) and Torvi (Georgia Hirst).
However Torvi and Ubbe look a little older than they were left in season five.
There is also a young child with them, who also looked like she had aged as well.
Meanwhile, Helgi the Lean and Asbjorn stars Jack McEvoy and Elijah Rowen have teased many “interesting turns” will occur in season six.
Helgi star Jack said: “To be honest, I really, really do not know [how Vikings ends]. I don’t have any idea. We’ve seen the show take so many curve balls and interesting turns that you just don’t know what they’re going to come up with next.”
An “interesting turn” could be the shock killing of Lagertha and also shock fans with who kills her.
They also teased a potential Game of Thrones crossover in scenes that would delight fans of both shows.
Vikings season six is due to arrive on History and Amazon Prime Video later on this year.
