Gustaf Skarsgård announced his departure from Vikings in October, and fans refused to believe him.
The actor playing Floki, the Icelandic settlement leader attained extreme popularity over the past seasons — only to be killed off from the show at the end of Season 5.
As “What Happens In The Cave” has shown, Floki caused an avalanche by accident, which caused his death. However, Vikings fans refused to accept this, with many still asking: what happened to Floki on Vikings?
So, did Floki really die on Vikings?
Unfortunately, it seems to be the case. One of the most popular characters on the show, the former boat builder, trickster, and clown-like figure did die in an ice-cold cave.
This means one thing: We will never get to see how he would have turned the tide and re-asserted his dominance over the infection-ridden, sick population of the Icelandic settlement.
