ET ONLINE – ***SPOILER ALERT!! If you haven’t watched Wednesday’s episode of Vikings, do not read!!
And with that, it’s time to bid farewell to Queen Aslaug.
Vikings said goodbye to Ragnar’s (Travis Fimmel) second wife on Wednesday’s episode, titled “In the Uncertain Hour Before the Morning,” after she was shot in the back — yup, you read that right — by Ragnar’s first love, Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick).
ET recently hopped on the phone with Aslaug herself, Alyssa Sutherland, who revealed that while her death might have left us with our mouths gaping open, Aslaug pretty much knew it was coming.
“She knows she’s done,” Sutherland said of Aslaug’s thoughts just before her death. “I think she knows exactly what’s going to happen to her. What’s left is how.”
How is right! Audiences watched Aslaug deliver one last “dig,” in Sutherland’s words, to Ragnar’s former wife, as Lagertha agreed to Aslaug’s surrender and request for safe passage out of Kattegat — only to shoot an arrow into her back the moment she turned to leave. While the move might have been built up by “20 years of history” — Lagertha told Aslaug she’ll never forgive her just the episode before — it’s still a literal stab in the back. Turns out, Sutherland couldn’t be more pleased with the result.
