Vikings season 6 is over, but it hasn’t answered those questions.
While we recently suggested that you come and check – being careful of spoilers – if you have followed the last 10 episodes of season 6 of Vikings, today we are looking back on the whole series, and on the questions she asked. Yes, now that season 6 – part 2 of which is available on Canal + in France – is over, the series has bowed out but it leaves some questions unanswered.
What happened to Rollo?

Even though his last appearance in Vikings foreshadowed a definitive departure, many fans – and we are one of them – regret not having seen him one last time in the final episodes. Ragnar’s brother had a crucial role in the series’ first seasons, and then he became an influential figure. It might have been interesting to see him come back or, for example, to see him react to the death of Lagertha and that of Bjorn.
Have they all forgotten Sigurd?
Sigurd – Credit (s): history
Not so much a question as a remark, we wonder why none of the characters mentioned Sigurd, Aslaug and Ragnar’s 4th son, in the very last season. The last episodes of a series are often the occasion to give a few nods to missing characters, and it could have been nice to show that all the sons of Ragnar have not forgotten their brother, killed by Ivar he a long time ago.
Where was Thorunn?

Thorunn was an important figure in Vikings until she got a wound in her face and ended up with a scar staring at her. Yet it is hard to believe that this one reason pushed her to leave, even more so in a culture that celebrates wars and only enters Valhalla by fighting. Why didn’t Michael Hirst bring Thorunn back in the final episodes? And where is she? We will surely never know.
Who is Bjorn’s real father?

One of the recurring questions in the series is who of Rollo or Ragnar is Bjorn’s biological father. The end of season 6 of Vikings did not give a clear answer and we imagine that the doubt will continue to hover unless Michael Hirst gives a clear answer. We know in any case that Bjorn has always considered himself the son of Ragnar, and the spiritual bond which has always united them is one of the proofs. Rollo perhaps more wanted to imagine that Bjorn was his son and that’s what probably prompted him to betray his brother.
