Will Uhtred Ever See his Two Oldest Children Again?
Young Uhtred returns to the church to live a tranquil life in season 4, while Stiorra joins the Danes and Sigtryggr (Eysteinn Sigurarson). It appears that Uhtred will be lonely without his children nearby. Is he going to see them again in season 5? It would be wonderful to see them all again, especially Uhtred’s youngest son.
What Might Happen in the Final Season?
The 5th season of the last Kingdom will have a total of 10 episodes, that are based on books 9 and 10 of The Saxon Stories called “Warriors of the Storm and The Flame Bearer”. According to the official synopsis, Uhtred may discover in the 5th season that his fate is linked to England’s future as a whole, not just Bebbanburg. Hence, his desire will have a greater purpose now that he is in charge of preparing Aethelstan as a warrior, who is the first-born son of King Edward.
However, to fulfill his destiny, Uhtred would have to confront his biggest foe and suffer his greatest loss. Besides that, fans will undoubtedly be worried about who or what Uhtred might lose in the forthcoming season, with various options that may range from one of his children to a trusted ally like Finan or Sihtric. The ongoing subplot involving Uhtred’s quest to recover his ancestral home on the fortified grounds of Bebbanburg may potentially receive some conclusion in this last season.
