SPOILER ALERT: This article discusses Season 6 of History Channel’s Vikings. Please proceed with caution if you have not yet viewed all available episodes and wish to avoid spoilers.

Based on several videos released by the History Channel, Episode 7 of Vikings will follow on with the demise of Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick). As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Episode 6 was a particularly harrowing one for fans of the famous shieldmaiden.

Lagertha’s son, Bjorn Ironside (Alexander Ludwig), has had a tough time in the election for a united Norway. While Olaf the Stout (Steven Berkoff) promised that Bjorn would become the King of all Norway, Harald Finehair (Peter Franzen) actively campaigned behind their backs and was victorious in Episode 6. Bjorn’s return to Kattegat will add to his grief as he finds out about the death of his mother.

New clips for Episode 7 show Lagertha’s funeral. It is likely that fans of the historical drama series will have to break out the tissue box as the shieldmaiden is given a fitting send-off to Valhalla.

However, the plot continues to evolve with other storylines, as detailed in the synopsis for next week.

According to Carter Matt, the synopsis for Episode 7, “The Ice Maiden,” is below.

“Bjorn returns to Kattegat; Harald gains a measure of revenge on Olaf; in Kiev, interesting news reaches Ivar and Igor about Prince Dir.”

While Harald is victorious in gaining his title as King of all Norway, it appears that he will exact revenge on Olaf.

Olaf held Harald in captivity after he was wounded in Bjorn’s attack on Kattegat while the town was under the reign of Ivar the Boneless (Alex Hogh Andersen). The synopsis suggests that things are about to get hard for Olaf. However, viewers will have to tune into next week’s episode of Vikings in order to find out more about the sort of revenge Harald has in mind.

Meanwhile, in Kiev, news arrives regarding Prince Dir (Lenn Kudrjawizki). Ivar and Prince Igor (Oran Glynn O’Donovan) had previously released Dir, after his brother, Prince Oleg (Danila Kozlovsky) had him captured and tortured. As yet, it is unclear whether Oleg suspects their involvement in Dir’s release. Viewers will surely be eager to learn more about this storyline.

Fans won’t want to miss the teasers for Episode 7, which show Lagertha’s funeral, as well as Bjorn’s heartfelt speech for his fallen mother below.

Season 6 of Vikings returns to the History Channel at 10 p.m. on Wednesday.
