Lagertha has Been Through Hell (Again) in New ‘Vikings’ S5E18 Photos

(Deposed) Queen Lagertha of Kattegat has certainly seen her fair share of hardships across the 5 seasons of HISTORY’s Vikings. She’s born children, lost a daughter, fought, lost and won wars, avenged herself against an abuser, removed a usurper, and forged unlikely alliances across multiple continents. She’s buried (or burned, as the case may be) all of her lovers except for one, and she’s still a badass even while in captivity.

That said, these new images of Kathryn Winnick from season 5 episode 18 are…hard to look at.


We LOVE Winnick, Lagertha, sole-series writer Michael Hirst, and the entire Vikings world, but…

LAGERTHA LOOKS LIKE THE ALBINO FROM THE PRINCESS BRIDE.


Vikings season 5 continues tonight on HISTORY.

About Mary Anne Butler

Over the past 10 years, she’s built a presence at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). 



Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. 



Though she be but little, she is fierce. #MabTheProfessional
