What happened so far in Vikings series 6?

WARNING: This article contains major spoilers from Vikings season 6, part 1

Bjorn Ironside and King Harald are injured

There are many epic and important plot moments to dissect from the Battle of Kattegat alone.

At the end of Vikings season, six, part one Prince Oleg (played by Danila Kozlovsky), Ivar the Boneless (Alex Høgh Andersen) and the Rus Vikings appeared victorious at the Battle.

Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig) was stabbed by his brother Ivar the Boneless on the beaches of Kattegat and Harald, King of Norway (Peter Franzén) appeared to be gravely injured.

Show creator Micheal Hirst has confirmed Bjorn and Harald are alive in episode 11 of Vikings but just how long they will live for remains unknown.

Fans will be waiting to find out if Bjorn will survive his injuries and will try to take back the Kattegat throne.

Speaking to TV Guide, he said: “Well, he’s not dead, is he? He’s very, very badly wounded.

“I can’t tell you too much but what I can tell you is the [midseason premiere] is an extraordinary episode and a number of things that you thought were true at the end of [midseason finale] proved not to be quite true.”

Ludwig, who plays Bjorn Ironside also confirmed his character will return for the second half of season six in “some way, shape or form”.

Ludwig said: “It certainly doesn’t look good for him. I’ll tell you that.”

He added: “Nobody would be expecting that [Bjorn to die], which is why I think it’s a genius move.

“It’s something that I had spoken to [creator Hirst] about in a lot of ways, and I said that I wanted Bjorn to go at the hands of somebody like Ivar.

“If it wasn’t Ivar, then it would have been by his own hand or something so tragic that the audience was just kind of floored by it.

“Because it’s so obvious for Bjorn to finally come up and achieve all this greatness and take his brother down and save the day, and it’s kind of what everybody secretly wants.

“And that’s kind of what I loved about the choice is that he goes — I’ll tell you this though.

“He doesn’t go without a fight. And whether or not he is still alive, you will see a version of Bjorn is some way, shape, or form.”

Harald is King of Norway

Halfway through season six, Harald won the election, defeating Bjorn Ironside to become King of Norway.

Despite Harald and Bjorn being enemies, they formed an alliance in a bid to drive the Rus Vikings out of Kattegat.

At the Battle of Kattegat, King Harald was severely injured by a Rus Viking as he fought on the beach.

Ahead of the battle, Ivar was to become King of all of Norway if he successfully defeated Bjorn and Harald.

However, it looks like things will not be going Ivar’s way with Erik the Red (Eric Johnson) making a bid for the Norwegian throne.

Erik picked up Harald’s fallen crown which was lying on the ground, so perhaps part B will see Erik sit on the throne of Norway and not Harald.

Will Harald remain King or will someone else usurp the throne?

Gunnhild (Ragga Ragnars) is alone and in a three-way marriage

In part one of Vikings, Gunnhild experienced several losses which proved to be traumatic.

Not only did she lose her close friend Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick), but her husband Bjorn also had an affair and she sadly had a miscarriage, losing her baby son.

To add to the heartbreak, Gunnhild was now part of a three-way marriage after Bjorn declared his love for Kattegat woman Ingrid (Lucy Martin).

Fans are curious to know what Gunnhild’s next move will be after Harald offered her the title of Queen of Norway if she left Bjorn.

With Harald potentially dead, will Gunnhild betray her husband and become Queen of Norway?

Alternatively, will Gunnhild fight against Ivar and Oleg to defend the crown of Kattegat on behalf of her husband?

What happened to Ingrid?

After Ingrid married Bjorn, she caught the eye of King Harald who attempted to win her for himself.

When Ingrid refused Harald’s advances, he raped her before throwing her out onto the streets of Kattegat.

The last time viewers saw Ingrid was her wandering the streets before collapsing into the arms of Olaf (Steven Berkoff).

Fans are worried for Ingrid’s future, with many fearing she will be forced to marry Harald.

Lagertha was killed

Who could forget one of the most shocking moments of Vikings season six?

The Seer’s (John Kavanagh) prophecy had been fulfilled as Lagertha was killed by one of Ragnar’s (Travis Fimmel) sons.

Fans suspected Ivar would be the one to take Lagertha’s life, but in a shocking twist, it was Hvitserk (Marco Ilsø).

Hvitserk, who was under the influence of drugs and alcohol and also suffering from PTSD, was hallucinating at the time he killed Lagertha, who had collapsed outside his home.

He believed her body to be a serpent/Ivar the Boneless and attacked the snake, stabbing it continuously.

Fans should expect to see at least a snippet of Lagertha in Vikings season six, part two after she featured fleetingly in the trailer for the upcoming episodes.
