In Hedeby, Kalf usurps the earldom with the help of Einar. Prince Aethelwulf searches for the young brother of the princess and his army. He captures a soldier who tells him that they expect reinforcements. Torstein’s left arm becomes gangrenous and he asks Floki to amputate it. King Egbert, woos Lagertha and offers her a necklace.
