What will happen to Bjorn Ironside in season 6B of ‘Vikings’?

To rebalance, Bjorn Ironside (Alexander Ludwig) is stabbed in a battle against Russia at the end of the season. Prince Oleg (Danila Kozlovsky) and his great forces, along with Ivar (Alex Høgh Andersen) and Hvitserk (Marco Ilsø) have come to invade Scandinavia. But Bjorn puts up a good fight with King Harald (Peter Franzén) and the rest of the Vikings. But Bjorn’s injury is a matter of controversy, as Ivar seems to be killing him on the beach when he should be somewhere else entirely.

When season 6B picks things back up, Bjorn is taken home to Kattegat badly injured. But he still has a plan, and he is proving himself a great supporter. Wounded and barely able to move in his bed, King Hakon (Mishaël Lopes Cardozo) has spread a rumor to Russia that Bjorn has already died. Hakon is killed by Russia, but the plan works.

Bjorn rides out to meet Russia on his own, still badly injured and barely able to sit upright. Ganbataar (Andrei Claude), a captain in Oleg ‘s army, shoots Bjorn with three arrows, but miraculously Bjorn is still alive. He frightens his enemies, and even heats up the Sword of the Kings, and raises his sword into the air. His army, which includes those who answered his call, gathers to help him. They surround Russia and win the battle. Much of Russia retreats, but Bjorn loses his life in the process.

Bjorn gets a large funeral where he sits at the top of the horse with his sword in his hand in the air supported by a chain in the top. He dies saving his country and using his wit to liberate his enemies, but loses his life in the process.

Many considered Bjorn’s death an appropriate end for him. One fan thinks it was a “good move for Bjorn. However, the manner in which it happened was surprising.

Another fan says he is “delighted with Bjorn’s death.” But they think it was a “sloppy place” for Bjorn to die with nine more programs left in the series. “But as… in terms of storytelling, that was pretty sloppy,” they said. “Going from a false death into the next program, the death itself with 9 more events to go…. just not very good. An embarrassing start. ”

“So they killed Bjorn last season, just to tell us he’s still alive, and then they killed this show? That means, ”said a fan of Bjorn’s death.
