Judith is delighted with monk-illuminator Prudentius’s lessons to mix pigments, gets Ecbert to agree to treat her ‘as equal’ when they become lovers again and welcomes Aethelwulf, who freed deposed Mercian queen Kwenthrith and her ‘heir’, Ragnar’s bastard Magnus, confiding into her Alfred’s biological father is Athelstan. A while after making Helga tell Floki their daughter died to complete his cave agony, Ragnar cuts him loose.
