In the fourth season, we got to see Uhtred interacting with his children. Young and Stiorra- both his children have same traits as Uhtred like stubbornness, and passion to follow their own path. For negotiating peace between Danes and Saxons, Sierra was very happy to be used as a bargaining chip and chose to join Sigtrygger and then go to Eoferwic.
Meanwhile, Young has decided to continue his path and with his studies. Now, East Anglia is under the control of Wessex and Mercia and Northumbria is the last kingdom to be held by the Danes. Hence, these are some of the things we can expect from Season 5.
