What happened to Floki?

Floki has not been seen since season 5B, and his whereabouts are completely unknown until season 6B. He went to Iceland to establish a settlement, but it was not such an easy process. The people there turned on each other and started killing each other. It was too much for Floki to take, and he tells Kjetill (Adam Copeland), who has just killed several people, that he would have been tortured and killed if he had remained the man he once was.

“Do with this place as you please, I am done with the people,” Floki tells him.

Later, fans will see him enter a cave, which he thinks is the gateway to Helheim, or the underground in Norse mythology. Looking to find the gods, he goes further into the cave, which happens to be in a volcano. He finds an image of a cross inside her, and in faith, he laughs and cries. But the erupting volcano causes the cave to be buried inside the debris.

Is Floki returning for last season?

It wasn’t clear if Floki would be able to make it out of the cave, but it seems to be. In episode 19 of the new season, Ubbe (Jordan Patrick Smith), along with his wife, Torvi (Georgia Hirst), find their way to the Land of Gold, which he has been searching for after in Iceland and Greenland. But it only comes after a long hard struggle that includes the loss of Asa, Torvi’s daughter, and the death of others.

When they realize that the Native American tribal leader in the area, Pekitaulet (Carmen Moore), can speak their language, they quickly learn why. Floki found his way to that place, and made himself into a nice little setting where he carved into the trees various events from the past, including the face of Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel ).

Ubbe, Torvi, and some of the others have brought to Floki ‘s home that it is built in tree house style. He moves himself down on some tables from his house, and laughs when Ubbe says, “Hello Floki. ”

Floki has certainly changed, and he appears to be much more tolerant now than he was in his aggressive days in the past. He tells Ubbe that the Native Americans paid attention to him when he arrived.

“Those people were always paying attention to me,” Floki explains to Ubbe. “I would not live without them. When I got here, I was weak, unable to stand on my own two feet. “They fed him and did well again.

When Ubbe asks why he left Iceland, Floki responds with him, “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. He describes his “true soul” as “sick.”

“And so I found a boat,” Floki reveals. “Being a Viking, as I still was, was able to find a boat.” When asked what made him so sad, Floki replied, “I don’t always remember.”

Fans will be happy to hear that Floki has returned for the final season of Vikings, and is reunited with Ragnar’s son.
