Summary of The Last Kingdom season 5
Netflix has shared a synopsis for the final season, which you can read here:
Many years have passed since the events of the previous season, and King Edward is still working on his ambition to unify the Saxon Kingdoms to [fulfill] dream of his late father. Although an age-old peace between the Danes and the Saxons now exists, that harmony is threatened. Not only by a new Danish invasion but also by a Saxon uprising. Uhtred is charged with protecting the bastard son of Edward, the future King of England, Aethelstan. But the treacherous Lord Aethelhelm has ambitions for his nephew Aelfweard, another son of Edward, to rule.
We follow Uhtred as he faces his greatest enemies, and suffers incalculable losses, on his quest to fulfill his destiny. Meanwhile, Edward draws fine lines between peacekeeper and dictator as he fights to rally the fractured Kingdoms on land. In a surprising twist of fate, Uhtred discovers that his quest to unify England may be linked to his own personal destiny.
After the events of season 4, Brida wants revenge on Uhtred, and it doesn’t look like she’ll stop there to get there. With that, Uhtred witnessed his daughter arrive at Eoferwic with Sigtryggr. We know that the plot will continue in season 5. And, we saw Uhtred lose love this season because he was basically betrayed by Aethelflaed. Can they rekindle their love or is this the end?
With Aethelflaed and Edward in control of Mercia and Wessex, that’s the foundation for a strong alliance in season 5. How long that will last, we can’t say. And, don’t forget Aethelhelm. He is the biggest threat to Edward’s reign at the moment.
