In the latest series of Vikings, it has been no secret that Ragner Lothbrok’s (played by Travis Fimmel) son Hvitserk (Marco Ilsø) has been struggling with PTSD and substance abuse. However, no one was expecting this to lead him to commit one of the most shocking acts the series has ever seen.
Hvitserk was haunted by the burning ghost of his dead love Thora (Eve Connolly) and lived in fear Ivar the Boneless (Alex Høgh Andersen) would return.
However, a bad hallucination led him to believe he was killing a huge serpent which represented Ivar’s presence, when in fact he had fatally wounded Lagertha.
Following the murder, Hvitserk fled the scene, leaving Lagertha to enter the Great Hall of Valhalla.
However, things could have been very different.
“And I was glad that, she felt herself, that it was fate that she’d known all the time, that one of them that would kill her.
“So to that extent everything fell into place in the end. But for a long time I didn’t know. I was waiting myself to see what would happen.”
The scene was an emotional watch as fans saw the famous Viking utter her last words, welcoming death.
Years after the Seer had predicted it, a son of Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel) was the one to kill Lagertha.
