    A time jump that would be long enough that her hair went grey wouldn't make sense. I don't know.

    Women rarely lived to see forty back then.

    They turned grey real young.

    Well, Ragnar's kids with Auslaug are all in their 20's at least and Bjorn is at least a decade older, which makes him in his 30's...and she'd probably be in her 50's by that timeline. So yeah. She'd probably be grey by then. And grey can happen very quickly.

    I thought she turned completely white haired pretty much over night, after the battle vs Ivar was lost.

    Stress can turn one's hair gray very quickly. Reasonable to assume that she would be rather stressed during this time.

    I'm not chalking it up to stress. Stress would show in her face, too. But she doesn't show signs of stress in her face. I think it's supposed to be some kind of magic-like effect that turned her hair white (looks white on my TV, not grey...)

    Emotionally and physically jarring moments in time can cause intense physiological reactions. Such as the sudden changing of hair color?

    Slaying her beloved lover and her unborn child while staring in to her eyes and losing everything she loved may count as one of those moments.

    I kinda feel like they realized how much the show's original characters have changed since the start,(Floki looks like he's about 100 years old, Rollo looks like a fat old Grandpa) then realized Lagertha looks exactly the same and just said "Screw it, dye her hair white".

    Pretty much this. She's still hot in my book.

    I wish it was on HBO or something so they could show more than the on HC if you know what I mean.

    You do realize everyone outside North America/US gets the uncensored versions? But even still, Winnick doesn't do nude scenes.

    Sorry I'm not outside North America/US. But I could at least hope.

    Did anyone else experience the narration voiceover during the last episode?

    It was on every stream I came across

    What a hot mess this season is. Iceland parts are really just fastforward bits now and the Queen telling Lagertha that she has a lump in the breast and women die from it just felt unnecessary foreshadowing to present day.
