What we can see in season 5?
Season 5 will be based on the books ‘Warriors of the storm’ and ‘The Flame Bearers’. In season 5 we will see Uhtred’s daughter will grow in a beautiful and independent woman and will be marrying Ivarson’s brother. We might also see Uhtred’s second son in season 5. In the last season, we saw Uhtred attempts acquire Bebbanburg back but it went wrong leading Ultred bearing a huge loss while saving Wessex. It is possible that Eliza Butterworth who was seen in the previous seasons as Aelswith won’t be present in season 5. We will see the separate kingdoms coming together in season 5. So basically season 5 will definitely be more exciting and will be worth our wait because so much is going to happen.
