Alfred reaches Lindisfarne, in search of the memory of his father, and hears his voice as he prays. Floki and the settlers begin creating a settlement near hot springs in their new land.
Floki proposes a co-operative, democratic approach, but Eyvind does not trust him and accuses Floki of wanting to be King. Astrid tells Harald that she is pregnant, while Ivar and Heahmund discuss their plan of attack. Bjorn returns to Kattegat, where Lagertha has allied with King Svase of the Sami.
Bjorn rejects Torvi and proposes to marry Snaefrid, Svase’s daughter. Lagertha and her allies discuss how to respond to Ivar’s attack, and decide to meet him in battle on land, assuming that he will not attack the town from the sea.
Margrethe continues to urge Ubbe to betray Lagertha, so that when she is defeated, he can become King.
