Movie News Guide noted that the mention of Astrid is seen in The Silk Roads: A New History of the World. Avid Vikings fans know that in the Vikings culture, homosexuality is not forbidden.

It seems all the sufferings that Lagertha had endured from all the men she loved before was enough. So instead of a new man in her life, she will opt to have a romantic relationship with a fellow woman. Meanwhile, Ivar The Boneless will face pathological issues.
