“Vikings” Season 6, episode 8 will take the story one step closer to the end. A preview video of the next episode shows the possible death of yet another son of Ragnar (Travis Fimmel). Meanwhile, Kattegat will have to prepare to defend against another attack.

Hvitserk (Marco Ilsø) will pay for his crimes in the next episode, a preview video shows. Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig) will not be in a forgiving mood after saying goodbye to his mother, Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick).

The new king of Kattegat has made a few mistakes after taking over the role, and it remains to be seen if the death of his brother will count as one of these mistakes. If Hvitserk is to survive in the next episode, someone else will have to save him.
