'Vikings' season 5B trailer suggests death of a character (Spoilers)
The Seer (John Kavanagh) is heard in a voiceover saying: "Once more brother will fight again brother and the world will be wrecked and everything is becoming darker.”
'Vikings' season 5B will be premiering November 28 and History recently released bunch of promo videos for the new episodes. It looks like one of the characters could die, reported the Express. The main question here is whether Ivar is going to kill Hvitserk. One of the teasers released by History suggested Hvitserk (Marco Ilsø) might die.
The video shows how Hvitserk gets ready to battle his brother Bjorn Ironside (Alexander Ludwig). We see a montage of battle shots and Lagertha Ingstad (Katheryn Winnick) is seen involved in the fight as a shieldmaiden. The Seer (John Kavanagh) is heard in a voiceover saying: "Once more brother will fight again brother and the world will be wrecked and everything is becoming darker.”
However, we didn't get a glimpse of Hvitserk in action, just thoughtfully gazing into the distance. He has been treated pretty badly by his brother Ivar the Boneless (Alex Høgh Andersen). Hvitserk was annoyed with his brother for leaving him out of plans, as well as deals he has made with King Harald (Peter Franzén) in secrecy.
A previous trailer showed Ivar tiptoeing around while Hvitserk was asleep and now, Hvitserk has none of his brothers in his corner as he chose Ivar over them. According to the Express, Michael Hirst, the creator of the show during Ivar's tenure as king in season five, said: "He almost instigates a reign of terror in Kattegat. It’s a provocative reign, it’s unhappy for the people of Kattegat and it doesn’t end happily. It will test the audience’s view of Ivar but I don’t think you ever totally lose sympathy with him and he’s such a good actor.”
Hirst added: “There’s something slightly Nazi about Ivar at this point. I have great fun with Ivar. I think one thing we’re blessed with is that he’s a great actor playing the role.” Season 5B of 'Vikings' will premiere November 28 in the United States and will be available on Amazon Prime Videos on November 29 and thereafter, with one episode every week being released.
