[Spoiler alert: This article contains spoilers from ‘Vikings’]
Floki was last seen in a cave in Iceland
Floki is an accomplished and respected boatbuilder in the series Vikings. He was also best friends with Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel), one of the most famous Vikings in the series. Even though they were falling out, they still liked each other, and told each other about their last meeting.
After Floki’s wife, Helga (Maude Hirst), dies, it’s not the same again. He finally discovers Iceland and returns to Kattegat to bring settlers to this new place he feels is the land of the gods. But when the settlers arrive, there is a great drama, and a bloody controversy begins among some of them. Floki can’t take it, and he chooses to leave on his own, leaving the settlement behind.
The last fans he sees, Floki is led into a cave that he thinks is the gateway to Helheim, or the underground in Scandinavian mythology. While hoping to find the gods, he comes across a sculpture of a cross, and in faith, begins to laugh and weep. However, the cave inside a volcano erupts while Floki is still inside. Fans will see him buried inside the rubble, and his whereabouts are unknown for years.

Fans have been wondering for years what happened to Floki, and with the final episodes now streaming, fans will soon learn the truth. The actor who is playing Floki posted a picture of his co – screen colleague from an earlier season to his Instagram mocking the latest events that are now streaming. Floki can be seen in what seems to be Iceland looking away from the distance. Skarsgård also posted tags to several actors from the series. He thanks Floki in the post saying, “it will always live forever in my heart. ”
Skarsgård resigned Instagram with: “End with us! The last ten programs of Vikings released today on @amazonprimevideo in the US, @hbonordic in Scandinavia. Say a ride. Many thanks and love to everyone involved. And a special thanks to Floki, he will always live forever in my heart. ”
Is Floki returning for season 6B?
Floki returns for the last two shows. Ragnar’s son, Ubbe (Jordan Patrick Smith) and his wife, Torvi (Georgia Hirst) have traveled far and wide in search of the Golden Land. Ubbe travels to Iceland first to look for Floki, but he doesn’t find it. Instead, he learns about the Golden Land, and his mind is set on discovering it. After discovering Greenland and establishing a settlement there, they face many hardships. However, they eventually found the land they were looking for.
As soon as they land on the precious shores of The Golden Land, the group of Vikings finally meets Native Americans. Their director, Pekitaulet (Carmen Moore), can speak their language, and they soon learn that because Floki landed there as well. In episode 19, Native Americans get to see Floki, who has made a treehouse-style home.
“Those people always took care of me,” Floki explains. “I wouldn’t live without them.” Floki found a ship and left Iceland, but was weak when he arrived, and the Native Americans fed him and made him better.
Ubbe asks why he left Iceland, and Floki says, “I left when the sadness grew too much. I was late. I was in prison in grief. I felt deserted by the gods. I shouted at them, but I never heard their voices again. The world made no sense. ”
The series ends with Floki and Ubbe sitting on a beach overlooking the water. Floki returns before he’s done, and it’s good to know that he’s with Ragnar’s son at the end Vikings.
