In the series Vikings, Siggy (Jessalyn Gilsig) is a minor character that becomes a part of Ragnar Lothbrok’s (Travis Fimmel) family’s close circle over time. Once the local Earl, Haraldson’s (Gabriel Byrne) wife, Siggy loses her place when her husband is killed by Ragnar in one-on-one combat. She forms a relationship with Rollo (Clive Standen), Ragnar’s brother, from there. She adapts to her change in circumstances, but meets an unexpected end in season 3. Fans have weighed in on why a mysterious wanderer didn’t “help Siggy” in the moment.
Siggy’s death in ‘Vikings’

Siggy won’t make it past season 3 of Vikings. A mysterious man named Harbard (Kevin Durand) arrives in Kattegat after Siggy, Queen Aslaug (Alyssa Sutherland), and Helga (Maude Hirst) all dream of him before he makes his way to Kattegat. He’s a wanderer, and he takes a liking to Aslaug. He’s able to calm Ivar, Aslaug’s son, taking away his pain and getting him to go to sleep, which relieves Aslaug.
It’s alluded to that Harbard, or the Wanderer, could be a god, although it isn’t exactly spelled out. Siggy is suspicious of Harbard, but her feelings aren’t taken seriously.
Aslaug starts a sexual relationship with Harbard, and when she goes to see him, she leaves her children behind. Siggy tries to convince her to stay as things need to be done and people need to be seen, but Aslaug goes anyways, and Siggy chooses to take Aslaug’s responsibilities on.
Siggy is watching Aslaug’s children when two of them, Ubbe and Hvitserk, just young boys, go off on their own. They find their way to a frozen lake, and Siggy, who follows after them, watches the boys fall into the frozen lake. She races to them, jumping in to save them. She pulls one out with the assistance of what looks like her daughter, Thyri (Elinor Crawley), who died from a plague years before. However, it’s really Harbard, and when Siggy resurfaces with the last child, who Harbard gets out of the water, she looks at him, and he stares back. Suddenly, Siggy takes her hands off the sides of the ice and falls back into the water to her death.
It’s peculiar that the Wanderer didn’t assist Siggy in getting out and just watched her fall back into the water without helping her. It’s a topic fans have thought about before.
