'Vikings' 5B: Teasers released by History ask if Ivar is 'God among men or terror among brothers?'
The first video is titled 'Power belongs to those who take it' and features Bjorn prepping for battle and a montage of scenes from the battleground
'Vikings' season 5B is going to witness a bloodbath in the upcoming battle between Ivar the Boneless (Alex Anderson) and Bjorn Lothbrok (Alexander Ludwig). History released two new videos about the upcoming battle and it looks gripping!
The first video is titled 'Power belongs to those who take it' and features Bjorn prepping for battle and a montage of the scenes from the battleground. Bjorn is heard saying, "What is my role? What is to become of me?" What follows is a montage of scenes from the battle. Bjorn looks strong and powerful in the video which ends with him saying, "I want to take Kattegat back from Ivar." This chilling video suggests Bjorn could emerge victorious in the battle, but will this mean an end for Ivar?
The second video uploaded by History is captioned, "King Ivar ☠️ God among men or terror among brothers?" and opens with Ivar the Boneless saying, "I am no ordinary man. I am no ordinary ruler." The video depicts the practices carried out by Ivar's people in the camp and hardly has a scene from the battle.
Ivar asks his people to not be afraid as he has been revealed to be a God with another shot of him ordering his people to "Bring on the sacrifice." This shot is followed by a montage of people being murdered and pleading to him, while he enjoys it and assumes himself to be indestructible. The video ends with a voice in the background saying, "All hail your new King" with a smirk on Ivar's face.
The launch of the previous trailer suggested Bjorn will be the one who is going to die and fans believed so when Alexander Ludwig posted the trailer on his Instagram page with the caption: "#november28 #vikings gotta say this season gets pretty nuts. Was proud to be apart of it. All my amazing #Vikings fans thank you for your fervent support and passion there really are no words to express our gratitude. The shows success has been insane and totally exceeded our expectations on every level and it is all thanks to you."
Going by the looks of the trailer, Bjorn does look pretty helpless and at one point defenseless while we see paint smeared on his face and blood dripping from his forehead. However, there are speculations of Bjorn returning for season 6. Could there be a twist that we don't know about?
We will find that out only when 'Vikings' 5B releases November 28 on History.
