Find out what inspires Hvitserk to say that in season 6B, Ivar “changed”
[Spoiler Alert: This article includes “Vikings” spoilers]]
Prince Igor helps Ivar escape from Prince Oleg.
Ivar makes his way to Kyiv in season 6, where he meets Oleg. Oleg witnesses the killing of his own brother, Prince Askold (Blake Kubena), in order to manipulate the kingdom’s heir, Prince Igor (Oran Glynn O’Donovan), who is still an infant. In a cage with a chain on his cheek, Ivar sees the cruelties of Oleg, like chaining his other brother, Prince Dir (Lenn Kudryavitsky). Ivar helps him escape, and Ivar returns to Kiev when the Russian invasion of Scandinavia fails, and helps to overthrow Oleg.
But first the Rus are defeated after a scheme is hatched by Bjorn Ironside (Alexander Ludwig), already wounded in combat by a stab wound from his supposed brother Ivar (who was supposed to be entirely somewhere else at the time).
Björn rides into the Rus, terrifying the soldiers who think he’s dead already. However, he doesn’t live long after being struck by three arrows. He saves the country, however, and the Rus are defeated and withdraw.
Back in Kiev, as a sign that Dir is ready and he should go with Igor, Ivar receives a dagger from Princess Katya (Alicia Agneson). Together with his brother Hvitserk and the princess, he does as he is asked.
They’re having an appointment with Dir and getting the money back.
They all return to Kiev together with Dir’s forces, and find that Oleg is not standing in their way.
You manage to open the gate and a soldier hands a sword over to them.
They take over the city without any problems, but Ivar maintains that he must die when Oleg appears on the balcony, while Oleg hopes for peace with his kin.
That is not going to happen, however.
At Ivar’s insistence, Prince Igor kills his uncle, Prince Oleg.
Ivar orders Igor, with a bow and an arrow, to kill his uncle. He also says that he will not be free if he does not kill him. He loves him, Ivar says, and offers to do it for him.
Igor, however, tries to kill him, and fires an arrow at Oleg, who falls to the ground and dies.
While Katya is pregnant with Ivar’s baby, Ivar decides to go back with Hvitserk to Kattegat. Igor does not want Ivar to leave, however. Like a son with his father, he has developed a bond with him.
During his time in Kiev, Ivar has changed because of his friendship with Igor. He says he loves him, and, of course, it’s probably the best family relationship he’s ever had, apart from his wife.
And the king will be you’
Season 6B, ‘Vikings’: Fans react to the new trailer
Before Ivar leaves, Ivar and Igor talk, and Igor says he does not want him to go. As Ivar laughs, he throws him to the ground, and Igor tells him that he heard that he was going.
“You can’t,” Igor says, “I won’t allow it. I own all the land. I own the sky and the clouds.”
“But I don’t belong to you,” Ivar says.
“So it’s true. You go,” Igor says, visibly upset that this father figure will soon be out of his life.
Ivar reveals to him that he isn’t a boy anymore. Ivar says, “Only a man can be king,” “And a man has to put away childish things and learn to stand on his own two feet.
Everyone here loves you. I would not go if I did not believe you were safe. You are safe.
And you will be king.”
Igor cries as he watches Ivar leave Kiev. He cries Ivar’s name, and Ivar looks back at the boy he must consider his own child. He raises his hand to say goodbye, and it is a shattering moment for Igor.
Ivar smiles at him and turns to leave. “Let’s go,” Ivar says to his brother.
What prompts Hvitserk to tell Ivar that he has “changed”?
As they leave, Hvitserk says, “You’ve changed,” when he sees Ivar’s departure from Igor.
“We never really change,” Ivar replies, “We just think we do.” But Hvitserk insists that Ivar has changed, and many fans will surely agree with him.
Ivar has definitely changed from his days when he was worshipped as a god and killed innocent people
