Ever since the renewal of The Last Kingdom Season 5, fans are impatient and want to know who will survive this season. They are also eager to know who will die in Season 5. If you want to know the same, then this article is for you.
The Last Kingdom Season 5: Who will die in Season 5?
In July 2020, Netflix announced the renewal of The Last Kingdom Season 5. The fate of few characters is unclear, and fans believe that they may not make it to the finale of season 5. They have made a discussion on this topic over the internet. Let’s dive into the discussion of ‘Who will die in Season 5?’
Who will die in Season 5?
The Last Kingdom Season 5 will probably continue after a few years of events in season 4. Uhtred of Bebbanburg will be in his mid-50s, and he will continue taking care of the Wessex heir, Aethelstan.
Few characters just disappeared in season 4, and fans are wondering what happened to them. Uhtred’s old friend Brida, was given a chance to live after having a one-on-one battle with Uhtred. Fans, however, think that she may not survive in season 5.
She felt betrayed by Uhtred and this leads her to join the fight against Uhtred and the Saxons to get her revenge. Few fans have shared their views on Reddit regarding her future in season 5. Let’s have a look:
One fan said, “If they follow the books, which is very iffy at this point, both Brida and Haesten will be killed in S5, but the show isn’t really following the books anymore, so who knows what they’ll do.”
Another one says, “Brida can die in season 5 because she has basically no role anymore, but can see her survive until season 6.”
In season 4, Haesten was being more submissive, and he even abandoned the fight. Later on, during the Winchester siege, he tried to protect Eadith, which is quite surprising. Fans also think Dane’s character has come to an end.
One fan on Reddit says, “Haesten continually associates himself with people that die, but Haesten himself keeps on surviving. I feel like time is running out for him. I feel like death will catch up to him in season 5.”
While another one says, “I think Aelswith will die in the first episode of Season 5, and Haesten will probably die this season too. I think Brida will survive tho.”
In the season 4 finale, Aelswith was poisoned by her enemy Aethelhelm and she was on her deathbed when her daughter Aethelflaed arrived. Fans believe that she will die in season 5.
