In episode 8, Igor challenges Oleg openly. In return, Oleg threatens to have him killed. Igor finds comfort in Ivar, who has bigger plans for Scandinavia.
"Vikings" season 6 episode 10 is titled "The Best Laid Plans" and it will unfold Ivar and Igor's plans against Oleg. The official synopsis suggests that the partnership between the former Viking leader and the heir of Kievan Rus' strengthens as they continue to plot against Oleg, the power-hungry Varangian prince. Putting their plan in motion, they must move away from Kiev and begin their invasion of Scandinavia.
Meanwhile, after banishing his brother Hvitserk for killing his mother Lagertha, Bjorn teams up with King Harald in preparation of the impending invasions. They are hard at work to prepare themselves to defend their kingdoms from the raids. How far do they succeed with their efforts remains to be seen.
The details about episode 10 are scarce. More plot points are expected to unfold when the promo for "The Best Laid Plans" will be unveiled after the broadcast of episode 9 "Resurrection" airing this Wednesday. Fans are advised to stay tuned for more details.
So far, it seems that "Vikings" season 6 will mark a perfect ending to the epic saga. Earlier, speaking with Variety, Michael Hirst assured that the final 20 episodes will bring them to tears.
"But, there are 20 new episodes to come. We visit three new worlds in those episodes, we go through great tragedies and great heroism, and if you have tears to weep be prepared to weep them as you watch Season 6. I'm very proud of the show. I did what I wanted to do, that's the truth," Hirst said.
"Vikings" season 6 episode 10 airs Tuesday, February 5 on History Channel.
