There is a big death by the end of “Vikings” season 5. Now, a new online post suggests that the much-expected death of a popular character may not be featured this year. The following article contains spoilers.

Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) has been counting her days since the Seer (John Kavanagh) told her she would die at the hands of Ragnar’s (Travis Fimmel) son. For a long time, it wasn’t clear who would be the one to kill the queen, but the ongoing war has given hints that the one to do it will be Ivar the Boneless (Alex Høgh Andersen).

The war is lost, and Kattegat will soon be occupied by Ivar’s forces. But the trailers for the next part of season 5 show that there is still a fair amount of fighting left. Lagertha and the others may be on the run, but it is only a matter of time before they are cornered. Rollo (Clive Standen) wants to save Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig), a request that Ivar may grant reluctantly, but the queen appears to be doomed.

Now, Winnick has shared a picture of her character in season 6. The first look shows her face covered in mud, her eyes filled with tears. The character is still alive, and this may be welcome news for concerned fans. “Alive,” the actress wrote in the post, possibly confirming that the queen’s time hasn’t come yet.

Winnick has directed one of the episodes of season 6, fuelling speculations that season 5 would be the end of her character. However, fans should note that Lagertha may still die this year and that the post of the actress could be from a flashback.
