PlotEdit

Kattegat is attacked by Egil and his men, but they are repulsed and Egil is captured, Torvi is injured while defending the city. Under torture, Egil confesses to Lagertha that he had been paid by King Harald to attack her. Meanwhile in Mercia, terrified villagers flee before the advancing heathen army. Harald pretends to forgive Ellisif, then kills her husband Vik. Ellisif later pretends to forgive Harald, seduces him, and is about to kill him but is killed herself by Halfdan. Aethelwulf gathers a large army in Wessex and moves to intercept the advancing vikings. Before they meet, Ivar persuades Bjorn to scout a potential battlefield and plan to use the terrain to defeat the Saxons.
