RIP Bishop Heahmund.
His death on Vikings Season 5 Episode 15 was arguably more impactful than the Seer's, but both characters, in a way, saw their ends coming.
Heahmund renounced his love for Lagertha before the battle to save his soul, but that doesn't mean he died with a clear conscience.
In his final moments, as he was struck blow after blow, he used his last bit of energy to call out for Lagertha.
Unfortunately, she was wounded and unable to get to him, so there was no dying declaration of love.
He renounced his relationship with her out of fear of spending eternity in Hell, but in those final moments, he seemed to regret hurting her.
Whatever his final words would have been, we'll never know.
You can't do this. You can't do this to me, I thought you loved me. You know something? I think you always loved your lord, your God, more than you ever loved me. I don't think you ever did love me. Your soul, whatever that is, meant more to you than I ever could.

After losing the battle in Wessex, Harald might want to regroup before attempting to overthrow Ivar, so he may take his time before returning there.
I don't know what Harald's next move is, or what he plans to do with Lagertha, but Bjorn is not going to let it go.
He will most likely demand Alfred help him find her. He wants the lands that were promised to him, but his mother will be his first priority.
The battle was a thing of beauty.
As usual, the camera work and editing made it visually stunning. The cuts between the pre and post-battle scenes, the slow motion, and the music all played a part in ramping up the tension.
Ubbe's battle plan was pure genius.
Tricking Harald into thinking they wanted to make a deal to put him in a compromising position worked like a charm.

Ivar has always been known as the best strategist, but Ubbe could give him a run for his money. Alfred told his kingdom that they couldn't have won without their Viking allies, and he's right about that.
I knew then, with a beautiful certainty, that the day and the battle belonged to us! But without our Viking allies, I swear to you, there could be no victory.
