The show, which follows the legendary stories of hero Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel), the first Viking to emerge from Norse mythology, has been a hit with audiences since it first aired.
Former star Fimmel departed the series in season four, and his character, Ragnar Lothbrok, is based on the legendary Lodbrok.
It is fitting that, as his sons go to war with one another, the poem about their father is featured in the episode.
Fimmel’s character Ragnar Lothbrok died in the series just as he did in the poem.
After Ragnar’s death, the show continued by following the adventures of his sons all around the world, specifically Bjorn and Ivar.
