time aside. Bjorn let him go although he killed his mom, Lagertha. He led
Hvitserk proper into Ivar’s ready arms with the Rus military. Hvitserk will
in all probability stick with Ivar it doesn’t matter what occurs subsequent. They are clearly linked
and might’t appear to flee one another.

Lagertha like he wished after she killed their mom. He’s glad she’s useless,
however he’s in all probability nonetheless in disbelief that it was Hvitserk and never himself that
killed her.
