Over the past six seasons of Vikings, there have been many shocking deaths and disappearances of some of the show’s most loved characters. Gaia Weiss starred in season two and three of Vikings as Porunn (also spelt Thorunn) but has not been seen since season three, episode 8. Express.co.uk has everything you need to know.
What happened to Porunn?
Porunn was a former slave girl who caught the attention of Viking warrior and the son of Ragnar Lothbrok (played by Travis Fimmel), Bjorn Ironside (Alexander Ludwig).
She later married Bjorn, becoming his first wife.
Porunn was last seen in season three and her current whereabouts are currently unknown.
In season three, Porunn was suffering from severe depression after being brutally beaten by a Mercian warrior.

When Porunn’s injuries healed, she was left with a large V-shaped scar on the right-hand side of her face, leaving her feeling like a failure as a shield woman.
At the time, Porunn was pregnant and after giving birth to a healthy daughter named Siggy, it was implied she was also suffering from post-natal depression.
As a result of her suffering, Porunn alienated her husband Bjorn, despite his insistence that he loved her and was content.
Torvi came across Bjorn alone and the two began kissing, despite Bjorn insisting that he loves his wife.
Midway through season three, Porunn left Kattegat behind while her husband Bjorn and other Viking warriors were invading Paris.
She left her and Bjorn’s daughter, Siggy, in the care of Ragnar’s wife, Aslaug (Alyssa Sutherland).
Sadly, Siggy drowned in season four, despite Aslaug promising to take care of her.
By the sixth series, Bjorn has moved on and is currently in a three-way marriage with his wife Gunnhild (Ragga Ragnars) and new wife, Ingrid (Lucy Martin).
There is a major possibility that Porunn is still alive and her appearance in the remaining 10 episodes could make for interesting scenes between her and her former husband.

A second fan added: “She ran away after getting her face scarred in the battle, didn’t she? It’s been a while since I saw the first seasons, but I remember something in the lines of that.”
In response to the scar theory, ImnotJONSNOW7 replied: “Yea she pretty much exiled herself because she thought she wasn’t beautiful anymore, and then the kid they had together died I believe.”
