Upon the advice of Uhtred, King Aethelred leads an army into the confrontation with the Danes and is mortally injured in battle against the warlord, Guthrum, although the Saxons prevail. Aethelwold tries to claim the crown, but the Witan declares Alfred King. Odda the Elder sends Aethelwold to a monastery. Alfred suggests an arranged marriage to give Uhtred land and status, thereby allowing him to have the title of Aelderman. Alfred negotiates with Guthrum and Ubba for peace and is successful. Alfred asks Uhtred to serve him for a year, to advise him on Danish battle skills, and in return will help him reclaim Bebbanburg. He agrees. Leofric, one of Alfred’s leaders of his troops, and Uhtred become friends. Leofric warns him that Alfred will never let him go. Brida miscarries Uhtred’s child. Uhtred and Brida give Earl Ragnar’s treasure to Young Ragnar, who has returned from Ireland. Brida leaves with him.
Uhtred wins the protection of Alfred, but this newfound allegiance might also cost him his relationship with Brida. Meanwhile, Brida harbors a secret of her own.
