Here's hoping Ubbe doesn't die, especially considering it looks like Torvi might be pregnant, so I'm sure he wants to see his first child.

It's like they had nothing left for Floki's character and hoped we forgotten. One big mess after Ragnar's death.

i love the scene where bjorn has the sword and hes on a hill top its just like the scene with his father when he has the sword and just became king looking foward to the next season

What a massive disappointment this season ended up being. Apart from Ubbe getting the settlement running in England, what else have the characters achieved? We are literally in the exact same point, except Bjorn is king and now Ivar will be the invader most likely. Half the scenes this season were a waste of time, given the fact characters like Magnus and Floki went nowhere this season, and the other scenes were incredibly poorly written. Then there was about 10% of pure brilliance just hiding somewhere underneath all this trash, because I know Hirst has got what it takes to write a genius show, like he's been doing for the first few seasons, but the man is out of ideas, and that's that. Don't get me wrong, I still enjoy watching this show, I'm a fan after all, but it no longer leaves me satisfied or wanting more after the credits roll. It's no longer this inspiring piece of media that is part of my life once every week, it's just like a chore, something I gotta scratch off the checklist of things I gotta do. Season 5 is forgivable, but *please* let season 6 go back to the roots and be truly great.

I thought the finale was amazing. The seer at the end was perfection. I can not wait for season 6
David Badihi
David Badihi:
Since 5x15 the show has been crazy. The fight vs the black dane with Ubbe, Battle of Marton, Battle of Kattegat and flashback of Ragnar Lothbrok. I mean come on guys, this season for sure has been chaotic and strange in some ways with the plot but they have really made the battles great.

Landing craft? Plus Ivar leaving town looks like some VC on the Ho Chi Minh trail.

The scene with the fiery water seems to be taking place in Kattegat, there's the cliff on the side.
And for the beach attack, we see what really looks like a dead saxon next to Bjorn

uber went on to start his own cab company in the 21st century, so dont worry about what happened to him.

Isaiah Quinn:
@King McKay I was wondering what do you think that scene with Bjorn having the king sword covered in blood, and all those dead bodies behind him represent? My theory was that it represented all the man he had to kill to get to the position of being king. I also think it could represent all the people he will have to kill to keep his position as king. What are your thoughts?

Loved season 5 and that episode 20 was so amazing and season 6 looks so good and I can't wait.

Just seen this KM, great news they have made so much of the show already, I was also thinking it would be a LONG wait for the final season.

I feel that the Most sad thing about last nights episode is that we only have 1 more season to look forward to, saying goodbye to a tv show u been following for alot of years builds an emotional connection to it, no more vikings to look forward to is like a break up from a girl u been whit for years its going to suk big time, hope it all ends on a good note though has been a Hella of a ride

Regarding episode 20: I noticed Hvítserk tossing the buddah. Then switch to Lagertha, and Torvi asking her about her "death". And funny enough her being pagan, she summed up the esence of buddism. Life is all about suffering. Seems like everyone is ending their spiritual journeys and deciding to live and be pagan. Including poor Magnus. Well he died a happy boy if he did not live happy.

I loved Bjorn and Gunnhild. They looked like Marvels new power comic. Really loved that Harold decided to save Bjorn. Maybe it was cuz he thought Gunnhild was watching, but I think it was just as much, because it was what he wanted to do. Harald and Bjorn are great, how they appreciate and admire each other. They know they should kill each other, but they really don't want to. Just adorable in its own way.

What I kept thinking was "why don't they just burn down the walls. ìvar is not beyond using fire. Just burn them and wait and bam rush in to victory!

That last scene with Freydis, I was hoping she had a dagger and would do what she wanted to do. But of course not, she ended up dying. Freydis someone I really have not liked, but at the end I could sympathize with her, cause of her baby. But in a way just as good she went now, cause she would not have a future. She stood by ìvar while he has been burning people alive and other horrible things, she would have to face justice, or at least have no place to belong again. So yea, she kinda had to go.

ìvar escaping. Not surprised, but it certainly was not heroic.

Ubbe, Tovir and Lagertha arriving in perfect timing for crowning Bjorn as king. Very cinamatic, but ok, lets just enjoy it. I like the calmness over lagertha. A role as a wise woman, and advisor for Bjorn would fit her. I can't put into words how disappointing the trailer with her becomming younger raising another band of sheild maidens is :/
I can accept her motivation, her spiritual path took her to focus on how life is lived. But I don't see how that should take 10-20 years of her appearance and how it will fix those fractured bones and other injuries she seemed to have taken. No she should not have taken up the shield in the trailer at all :(

She looked safe, now maybe ìvar will get to kill her afterall :(

No Floki or Iceland, I supposed he did really kick the bucket. Tho I think we should see a spiriatual scene showing us the end of our beloved friend Floki.

Season 6 looks very good. I hope Ubbe and Bjorn survive

Man,I wished that Ivar could go to Dublin and raid the Isles....maybe that could happen in S6B but now he takes refuge in the Kievan Rus,where he can rebuild his power.I have heard though that the producers were searching for Greek-speaking males...maybe we could see a Rus attack in the Eastern Roman Empire, with Ivar for company!
Big daddy Shark
Big daddy Shark:
Did anyone else think it looked like the see’er was breaking the 4th wall tell the audience to hush by putting his finger over his mouth and smiled when Bjorn asked if any of it was real?
Son Of Ragnar

I just cant wait to see the scene where the Rus vikings meet Ivar

didn't expect Ivar to destroy everybody but lose only cuz Freydis helped them
Susan Jewell

Ivar could also be talking to a brother of one of the Danish kings Ubbe was involved with or fought. Although it does look more Russian. I'm just hella excited for season 6 and not disappointed with the finale at all.

Ivar looks like a DiCaprio version of Joseph Stalin.

I think its Hvitserk whom Ivar is talking to

6:15 this shot reminds me of the Khergit units from M&B

2:09 it’s blurred out but he uses the line “our brothers” so I’m thinking it’s Ubbe cuz it kinda looks like him. Idk why they would be working together though. Maybe Ubbe wants to be King of Kattegat

"This has been an awsome season" Except for the ill planned deaths of heahmund, ethlred and magnus.

Remember in season 1 when everyone laughed at the idea of a old man going to fight in England well no one seams to be laughing at a 70 year old woman still fighting and looking 22 this is the last straw SJW's need to be fired

I must say that I really dislike the character of Ivor the Boneless?
He's an obvious narcissistic psychopath? He rules by fear and bullying. I hope he has a quick and nasty death....

2:43 Well it could be anyone really. But I think that its Rurik or another rus' noble.

I can't wait to see the new season of Vikings
Mary Bogue
Mary Bogue:
Alex Hoeg is so charismatic. I can't wait to see how he manipulates his way through Russia in Season 6. Meanwhile, I want to see Bjorn hanging on to power over the other contenders. He deserves to be King.
The Teenage Storyteller
The Teenage Storyteller:
If Ivar teams up with Oleg of Novgorod then we can definitely see some raids on the eastern Roman Empire since thats what made Oleg famous
Tanki Dinek

Loved season 5 and looking forward to season 6, hopefully this year.
GD_Mustah
GD_Mustah:
Hvitserk in historical text had 3 sons, Askold, Dir and Oleg the prophet who were all confirmed for season 6.

Torvi and Asa (her daughter) were looking over 2 animal skulls and i think they may represent erik and refils (bjorns sons) deaths.

Who ivar was talking to could be one of the 3 founders of the Kievan rus like Rurik.

I really like the season finality but holy shit am I worried for Floki...

When I first saw this trailer months ago I knew that the wide shot of the snowy village was Russian/Mongolian. Also the carriage that Ivar rides in is Chinese or Mongolian or Russian because of the “checkered” wooden background(thanks Mulan)

yeah ivar's talking to hvitserk. hvitserk will have to battle his way out of kattegat as stated by marco ilsø (his actor) on instagram: 'after many episodes of fighting' and on the picture he has wet hair and bloodshot eyes. connected to that theres a picture of ubbes actot and hvitserks actor (hvitserk again bloodshot and same outfit) so my guess is that he fights his way out of kattegat after maybe having a confrontation with ubbe or possibly lagertha who knows.
