Katheryn Winnick has had a truly busy year. The "Vikings" Season 5 is set to appear in the highly anticipated film adaptation of Stephen King's "The Dark Tower". In addition to that, Winnick will return as the new Queen of Kattegat in the fifth season of the History series. So what's in store for Lagertha in the show? There are speculations that the former shieldmaiden will form an alliance with King Aethelwulf's sons Alfred and Althered in case Ivar the Boneless decides to kill her.

It's no secret that Ivar the Boneless has a bone to pick with Lagertha. After all, the former shieldmaiden has murdered his mother Aslaug in the fourth season. Since then, Ivar has vowed to assassinate the new Queen of Kattegat, who has already been told by the Seer that she will die at the hands of one of Ragnar Lothbrok's son. However, it looks like Lagertha already has something planned out for "Vikings" Season 5. Has Katheryn Winnick just confirmed a possible alliance with Alfred and Althered when the show returns later this year?

Katheryn Winnick has posted an interesting picture on Instagram showing the actress with her "Vikings" Season 5 co-stars. The star of "The Dark Tower" added the caption, "What an amazing season it has been," along with the hashtags #Saxons and #friends. Naturally, fans immediately wondered if this meant that Lagertha will be working with Athelstan's bastard son Alfred (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo) and his half-brother Althered (Darren Cahill). In addition to that, it looks like Halfdan the Black (Jasper Paakkonen) and Torvi (Georgia Hirst) will be on Lagertha's side.

But when exactly can fans expect to see Katheryn Winnick on "Vikings" Season 5? CeleBeat has previously reported that the upcoming season has officially wrapped and the air date could be announced later this month.
