Vikings season six part B is due to air soon and the last half of the season saw Ivar (played by Alex Høgh Andersen) stab his brother Bjorn Ironside (Alexander Ludwig) during the Rus battle. Ivar’s brother Hvitserk (Marco Ilsø) had joined forces with Ivar in a bid to claim power over Scandinavia. A deleted scene between Hvitserk and the Seer (John Kavanagh) reveals Ivar’s fate and Express.co.uk has everything you need to know.
Does Ivar know he is going to die in Vikings?
Vikings season six part A saw Ivar and Prince Oleg (Danila Kozlovsky) launch an attack on Bjorn Ironside and the Scandinavians, and the saga is due to come to an end with part B.
Fans have formed a love-hate with the relentless and evil Ivar, as he has so far shown no remorse when it comes to killing his own family.
He stabbed Bjorn in what was a seemingly fatal blow, but fans were thrilled to find out Bjorn survived the injury and he is due to star in the final half of season six.
Fans are wondering whether Bjorn or one of his brothers will get their revenge and take down Ivar once and for all, and a deleted scene suggests Ivar already knows his fate.
The scene was released by IGN and it shows Hvitserk hallucinating about a meeting with the Seer, who tells Hvitserk of a prophecy involving Ivar.
In the scene the Seer says: “Ivar will live to the see the triumph of death and of course it will greatly surprise him. But his own death by contrast will not shock him in the least.”
With this in mind, if Ivar does die in the final episodes, it seems his death will not come as a surprise. Hvitserk has already warned Ivar he cannot kill Bjorn, who was nicknamed ‘ironside’ due to his ‘invincibility’ on the battlefield.
Ivar is most likely aware of Bjorn’s ability to take him down once he regains his strength, and fans would not be surprised to see him get his revenge.
However some fans have suggested it will be Hvitserk who kills Ivar, and they have taken to Reddit to discuss the deleted scene.
Mustafa-ali123 said: “This is very interesting, could it mean Hvitserk kills Ivar and so when he does Ivar is not surprised that he did it, because of all the things that Ivar did to Hvitserk like burning Thora to death.”
Hvitserk’s sanity spiralled following the death of his girlfriend Thora (Eve Connolly) who was killed at the hands of Ivar’s men in the most brutal way. So it would make sense for Hvitserk to want to get back at his brother for all the pain he has called.
Ghostface1357 added: “It is very likely. I personally don’t want Hvitserk to kill Ivar but the fact that Hvitserk asks about Ivar’s fate to the Seer could mean he plays a part in it or does it himself.
“I think Ivar will die by the end of the show, this conversation kind of confirms it.
“I would’ve liked if Ivar sacrificed himself by either saving Hvitserk or his people. Maybe Hvitserk is about to die and Ivar somehow saves him and ends up dying for it. Or Ivar risks his life to save his people.”
The show’s creator Michael Hirst has teased the same fate for Ivar, by telling fans the series will have a satisfying ending. Ivar has been one of the most hated characters throughout the series, so many viewers would be pleased to see him get his comeuppance.

Izipizi23 added: “I really think that Ivar will die next season. The Seer mentioned his death, so it must happen. We have to see how his death is no surprise to him. And probably Hvitserk will be involved in this.
“But I can’t believe they deleted this scene. Why? How can you delete a scene this important? Weird.”
Fans have mixed opinions about the news that Hvitserk may be involved in Ivar’s death, as many do not feel he should be the one to kill Ivar.
Another fan said: “I think Hvisterk will be involved in Ivar’s death, but not directly. With all the talk about Ivar’s redemption, I doubt he will be killed by his own brother, but I think he will die willingly to save him.”
Picking apart the rest of the Seer’s prophecy, fans believe the “triumph of death” mentioned refers to Bjorn surviving the attack, as Ivar was shocked to see his brother was still alive.
Others believed it could represent the fall of Paganism, as many of the characters have mentioned how the world as they know it will soon come to an end.
Christianity is likely to triumph over the Vikings’ pagan beliefs as the end of the series will steer towards the formation of England and the driving out of Danes.
Ivar the Boneless has always been envious of his brothers and he even killed his own brother Sigurd (David Lindström) without hesitation. Fans have explained how they would like to see Ivar have a change of heart at the end of the series and sacrifice himself to save one of his brothers.
Hvitserk and Ivar seem to have the closest connection, so it would make sense for Ivar to realise how much Hvitserk deserves to live, and he may give his own life in place of Hvitserk’s.
Mustafa-ali123 added: “That would be satisfying for him to die saving Hvitserk which is how I would want it. It will also show how much Ivar changed from killing a brother to sacrifice himself to save the other.”
Actor Andersen had uploaded photos of himself in character as Ivar, covered in blood, on his Instagram account, so this could indicate Ivar’s death is sealed as part of the final season.
