What happened on ‘Vikings’ mid-season finale season 6?
On ‘Vikings’ season 6, we saw Bjorn and Harald preparing for the incoming Rus attack by fortifying the capital’s fjord. Unfortunately, Gunnhild lost her unborn child during these preparations. Afterward, Harald raped Ingrid only because Bjorn had taken a second wife. While in Kyiv, Katia asked Ivar to accept her love, but he refused. She later revealed to him that she is not satisfied with her marriage to Oleg.
Ivar was helping Oleg plan the invasion and suggested that they attack from both fronts- the beach and the river to the North. The majority of the Rus fleet attacked the beach. Harald, Bjorn, and Erik were leading the defence front. Ivar, Hvitserk, Oleg, and their men managed to breach the block at the river’s mouth which was defended by Gunnhild. The Rus climb the mountain and surround the Viking army at the beach.
Thorkell was killed but Harald was seriously wounded. When Erik tried to help him, Harald refused his offer and asked him to retreat. Bjorn continued fighting and then, suddenly, Ivar appeared and stabbed him with a sword.
And, the first half of ‘Vikings’ Season 6 ended with a heart-wrenching cliffhanger, with Bjorn Ironside stabbed by his brother Ivar the Boneless (Alex Høgh Andersen). Just when Bjorn fell to the floor, laying helplessly at his sword, fans around the world refused to believe what they say. According to eagle-eyed fans of ‘Vikings’, what they were seeing was a dream of Bjorn and things will be different on ‘Vikings’ Season 6 part 2 and ‘Vikings’ Season 7.
What you saw was just Bjorn’s dream!
All through the final episode, fans saw Bjorn sitting on the beach with his brother Ivar talking about victory and power. Moments later the scene changed to hundreds of warriors fighting on the same beach, suggesting that a vision or a dream sequence was playing out.
Surrounded by dead bodies, Bjorn said,
“I have made many mistakes and I have failed, but this time I will not fail. I will win, the gods are with me”.
Ivar wasn’t convinced and responded, “You are wrong, the gods abandoned you a long time ago, my brother. There is no way you can win”.
The truth will only be established on ‘Vikings’ Season 6 part 2 or Season 7. But if we notice again, the pair were alone on the beach, and just when Bjorn was stabbed by Ivar, the rest of the warriors completely vanished.

One of the fans wrote on Reddit, “I just saw [the ending] yesterday and I saw a bunch of comments saying Bjorn’s still alive and the whole battle was Bjorn’s dream”.
He went on to say, “I thought it would be kind of ridiculous at first but then I realized there could be no way Ivar could just walk right up to Bjorn in the middle of the battle and stab him”.
“The fact that there were multiple timelines of the attacks makes me speculate that it was Bjorn imagining all the different scenarios that could happen”.
‘Vikings’ Season 7: Will it happen or not?
The death sequence of Bjorn has run a pall of gloom in the fans. It reminds us of the death sequence of Jon Snow in ‘Game of Thrones’. The creators kept it a mystery and played with the speculations until he was resurrected in the next season.
Bjorn is equally popular like is his father Ragnar. He has the tenacity and strength that few men possess. In many ways, he is like his father. Undoubtedly, he is an honourable warrior who strikes fear in his enemies while inspiring his allies to be brave in the face of death.
While it was announced that ‘Vikings’ will not return for season 7, it now seems untrue. The ‘Vikings’ has a lot to offer with Bjorn on Season 7. Because he is one of the most complex characters, a lot more stories can be played owing to his unpredictability. Ending his tale like his father would be the wrong decision.
It is rumoured that Bjorn will return as an even more vengeful person on ‘Vikings’ Season 7. ‘Vikings’ Season 7 will have to happen to give closure to the history of ‘Vikings’ because season 6 part 2 will be too short to do the same.
We can expect a vengeful drama on ‘Vikings’ Season 7 though nothing is official as of now. Write to us if you believe Bjorn is alive and kicking in the comments box below.
