Vikings Season 5 episode 13: Will Headmund be alive? Ivar plans human sacrifice
'Vikings' Season 5 episode 12 titled 'Murder Most Foul' showed the arrival of Lagertha, Bjorn and Ubbe in East Anglia in return to fight against other Viking incursions. Whereas if you see the promo of episode 13 'A New God' it promises to be as complex as the characters, especially to Bjorn.
A promo has been aired for 'Vikings' Season 5 episode 13 that promises that the episode will be one of the most dramatic of the series so far. The viewers will be surprised to see Ivar the Boneless is planning for a human sacrifice, whereas the tensions between King Alfred and Vikings continue to rise.
The promo for episode 13 opens with Ivar saying that he will make the sacrifice as his reign of terror continues. Ivar is contemplating to sacrifice someone who is known to the people and many are predicting it may be the seer.
He goes on saying "It must be someone people will have heard of." It is still unclear whom Ivar is planning to sacrifice but he undoubtedly has plenty of foes to choose from.
On the other hand, Ubbe informs Bjorn that the king wants the Vikings to be baptised into the Christian faith. Bjorn reacts violently throwing an unidentified object across the dining room where he and Ubbe were having the conversation.
The trailer for 'Vikings' Season 5 episode 13 further shows Torvi and Ubbe clad in white robes and their baptism is likely to be completed. Now we will have to wait and watch whether they will abide by the Christian faith or not.
"Heahmund must convince King Alfred that his actions are in defence of the crown; Ubbe and Torvi strengthen the position of the Vikings, but not all in the Viking camp support their strategy; another settler disappears in Iceland," the clip description reads.
Now Headmund will have to convince King Alfred that his action in the previous episode of killing Lord Cuthred was justified and intended to defend the crown. If he is unable to convince, he is likely to be slaughtered. The promo shows anxious Headmund being comforted by Lagertha.
Don't miss the airing of 'Vikings' Season 5 episode 13 titled 'A New God' on Wednesday, December 12 on History.
