Vikings season 6 theories: Prince Dir to kill Oleg in brutal ambush

The sixth and final series of the History Channel’s brutal series will air on Amazon Prime at an unconfirmed date. With the midseason finale of Vikings delivering one of the most crushing cliffhangers yet, fans have been wildly speculating what the finale episodes have in store.

Kattegat has once again come under fire as Bjorn Ironside (played by Alexander Ludwig) must defend his kingdom from the invading Rus forces.

As the son of Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel) struggles to keep control, a vicious ambush from viking rival Ivar the Boneless (Alex Høgh Andersen) has left him bleeding to death on the shore.

Several characters may soon find themselves on the road to Valhalla, and devoted fans have learnt to expect the unexpected when it comes to Vikings.

An intriguing teaser for the 11th episode of season six was released after the midseason break shocked fans in its closing moments.

As the fight rages on, Ivar seems stunned by the appearance of an unknown warrior, and Hvitserk warns him: “I told you, you can’t kill him.”

This intriguing exchange has led many fans to believe Bjorn is not quite dead, and continues to fight for his kingdom for some time before he finally succumbs to his wounds.

However, when fans took to YouTube to discuss an in-depth analysis of the brief teaser trailer, another sharp viewer had a better theory.

They said: “When Hvitserk tells Ivar, ‘I told you, you can’t kill him,’ I think he is talking about Oleg, not Bjorn.”

Ivar and Igor (Oran Glynn O’Donovan) continued to plot against Oleg (Danila Kozlovsky) in the midseason finale, despite enlisting the help of the Prince’s Rus army to invade Scandinavia.

With Bjorn seemingly out the way, the stage could be set for Ivar and Oleg to finally reveal their hidden agendas and face each other.

The fan continued: “I think it’s possible Bjorn saw his death coming so had an escape plan, since in addition to Bjorn living to an old age in real life, the fortune teller said he would do great things, and so far he hasn’t done anything great.”

Star Alexander Ludwig also teased Bjorn could make an unexpected return to the series in season 6b, so the Viking ruler could have used an opportune moment to quietly make his escape.

Additionally, the viewer revealed how Bjorn’s departure sets up the long-awaited clash between Oleg and his brother, Dir (Lenn Kudrjawizki).

They continued: “I knew Bjorn and Harald would start off losing this war but also said Prince Dir would come and ambush Oleg’s army, so look for that in the next coming episodes.”

The two brothers have had a bitter rivalry throughout season six, as Dir accused Oleg of poisoning their brother Askold (Blake Kubena).

Moreover, Oleg has held his brother prisoner after he challenged Oleg’s position as acting ruler.

Whatever the outcome, the final ten episodes of Vikings will undoubtedly bring the historical series to an end with a bloody and brutal battle for the ages.

Vikings will return to History and Amazon Prime at the end of 2020.
