Helga, Siggy, and Aslaug help Harbard with his hand. He explains that he is a wanderer, offering to share stories about his travels, and the gods, in return for lodging. In England, Floki resents Ragnar’s fighting for the Christians. The Vikings begin climbing the mountain to fight Kwenthrith’s brother and his army. She asks Ragnar to spare her brother. Torstein volunteers to go first, and dies valiantly. While Ragnar and his men fight their way up the hill, Aethelwulf’s archers surround Kwenthrith’s brother, killing many and forcing him to surrender. Þórunn is severely injured. Ragnar finds out that Þórunn is pregnant, and chastises his son for having allowed her to fight. In England, King Ecbert shows Lagertha his Roman bath house, and invites his guests to join him in the bath. Later, Athelstan finds Ecbert and Lagertha having sex. In Kattegat, a fisherman catches two drowned young boys in his nets. Siggy visits the Seer to discuss Harbard and her dreams.
Ragnar leads his troops against Princess Kwenthrith’s brother Burgred. The battle is short-lived however and Burgred quickly surrenders. Porunn is severely injured in the battle and Ragnar chastises his son Bjorn when he learns that she is pregnant. Despite the victories, all is not well among the Viking warriors and Floki in particular criticizes Ragnar for fighting the Christians’ wars. Back at the new settlement, King Ecbert leads a delegation of his noblemen to ceremonies marking the sowing of the first crop. He refuses to listen to any criticism telling his men they have the benefit of Ragnar’s army fighting in Mercia. However, even Ecbert is taken aback by the pagan ceremony.
