Furthermore, widely-followed YouTube fan pages have been sharing the alleged trailer for “The Great Army.” The link can be found at the end of this story.

The preview featured Ragnar’s sons Ivar, Sigurd, and Ubbe. They are played by actors Alex Hogh, David Lindstom, and Jordan Smith.

The three talk about “a great army” that they are planning to create. Ivar cryptically said that he wants the group to be “twice the size of the army [their] father took to Paris.”

Based on the brothers’ conversation, many believe that the next episode will reveal the details of this major storyline.

Other subplots

Aside from this monumental development, fans have been talking about the show’s other subplots teased in the promo.  

Jennie Jacques’s character Judith was seen talking to King Aelle. She warns him about the “scale of the retribution” – most likely referring to the army of Ragnar’s sons. However, the King simply responded that he is “fully prepared.”

There were also scenes featuring Katheryn Winnick’s character Lagertha. She murdered their mother Aslaug all the way back in episode 14. However, a scene from the trailer hinted that her punishment will finally unfold in the next episode.
