Will King Harald and Ingrid marry in part B?
In the season six, part A finale of Vikings, King Harald betrayed his ally, Bjorn Ironside.
Before they teamed up to defeat Ivar the Boneless and the Rus Vikings, Harald raped Bjorn’s new wife, Ingrid.
He brought her to his room against her will after she refused his offer to become Harald’s only wife and the Queen of Norway.
Following the assault, Harald promised to marry Ingrid if Bjorn died in battle.

Ingrid was last seen collapsing into the arms of King Olaf (Steven Berkoff) near the water.
With Bjorn’s fate currently unknown, fans are worried King Harald will get what he wants after all.
Throughout the series, Harald has always had an issue with Bjorn Ironside, stemming from his rivalry with Bjorn’s father, Ragnar Lothbrok.
Harald was always in the shadows of Ragnar Lothbrok and as a result, always tried to sabotage the Lothbok family after his death.
This was first seen in season five when he tried to take Kattegat from Ragnar’s widow, Lagertha (Kathryn Winnick).
He then abducted Lagertha’s lover Astrid (Josefin Asplund) and made her his queen, devastating Lagertha.
Despite achieving his life long dream of becoming King of Kattegat in season six, Harald could still not let his rivalry with the Lothbrok family go.
He tried to have Bjorn killed moments after he was elected King of Norway but luckily he was able to escape with the help of Erik the Red (Eric Johnson).
Even though he teamed up with Bjorn to try to defeat the Rus Vikings who were attacking Scandinavia, he could not let his rivalry with Bjorn go.

Before the battle, he assaulted Ingrid and promised to marry her if Bjorn did not survive.
In the midseason finale, Bjorn appeared to be stabbed by his brother Ivar the Boneless.
Whether Bjorn survived the attack remains unknown for now and fans will have to wait until part B to see if he survived.
With Bjorn appearing gravely injured, things looked like they were going Harald’s way and Ingrid would become his new wife.
However, Harald also appeared to be seriously injured in battle and had his crown taken by Erik.
Therefore Harald’s plans to marry Ingrid could be thwarted, considering the huge potential he is dead.
Speaking to TV Guide, show creator Michael Hirst teased the fate of Harald, revealing fans will not find out if he survived his injuries until episode 11.
He said: “ I think perhaps one of the unexpected things about that episode, the last episode of 6A, was how definitive it seemed to be that this is a wipeout for the Vikings that we’ve never really seen.”
Hirst added: “And Harald and Bjorn are certainly extremely seriously, seriously wounded and likely to die. But what happens after that is saved for [Episode 11].”

Fans took to Reddit to discuss Harald’s plans and horrific assault on Ingrid.
One fan King_Harald_Finehair said: “I think it wasn’t fun for fans of King Harald (the historical raping aside, he’s a compelling character ) to be reminded of what he was capable of, and how petty he could be.
“I myself would have preferred he not rape Ingrid.”
A second fan, dizzybala10 commented: “The character has always been insecure and jealous. He’s a tragic figure, but this episode was very in character for him. He’s lost out his whole life, now especially to Bjorn.
“He knows Bjorn is the real king and Bjorn can have whatever he wants, so as some kind of revenge he takes something of Bjorn’s.”
MikeMet46 added: “They had a great storyline going with Harold saving Bjorn’s life and then Bjorn coming to help him.
“But they turned Harold into a mental reject. I don’t get it. How is this the best they can come up with?”
