Pórunn was last seen in season three and her whereabouts are currently unknown.

She was last seen leaving Kattegat while her husband Bjorn and other Viking warriors were invading Paris.

Pórunn left her daughter behind in the care of Aslaug (Alyssa Sutherland) in Kattegat.

At the time, Porunn was suffering from severe depression after being brutally beaten by a Mercian warrior while pregnant.

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.

Thankfully, she gave birth to a healthy daughter named Siggy, but as a result of her suffering, she alienated her husband Bjorn, despite his insistence that he loved her and was content.

Despite her unknown location, there has been nothing to suggest Porunn will or will not make a surprise return.

Bjorn has moved on and is currently in a three-way marriage with his wife Gunnhild (Ragga Ragnars) and new wife, Ingrid (Lucy Martin).

Fans of Vikings have been seeking answers on Reddit about Porunn’s whereabouts.

One user commented: “This was such a poor storyline… I keep expecting her to show up again. The real answer is probably along the lines of having to write her out of the show bc she either got another part of something… That was odd.”

Another user said: “From what I read from the old thread. Porunn showed signs of Post Partum Depression. I think she just wanted to get away with everything.”

A third 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.”

In season four, Siggy, Porunn and Bjorn’s daughter drowned, despite promises that Aslaug would care for her.
