The previous season of Vikings ended with Ivar the Boneless “accidentally” killing his brother, Sigurd Snake-in-the-Eye and as per the plot, it is going to be a really big problem for him and also for the rest of the Lothbrok sons. There is also a possibility of a clash between Ivar and Heahmund in the next season of Vikings. Ivar is said to be the first of the Lothbrok sons who will cross paths with him.
This led to questions whether he would give himself in for his thirst for killing or would he have a hidden ability to control it, but the last scene depicts that he is grief-stricken after the killing. The reports suggest that Season 5 will also explore Ivar’s relationship with Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig) and which will lead a war in the Viking world.
