Floki visits the Seer who tells him that he has waited hundreds of years for Floki’s arrival and licks Floki’s hand instead of the other way around. Aslaug asks him to teach Ivar the way of the gods. Ragnar grows closer to Yidu, and lets her live in his private lodge. She gives Ragnar “medicine” from her native China, which leads to a night of hallucination. In the wilderness, Bjorn meets the berserker and kills him. He discovers that the berserker has King Horik’s ring. Bjorn arrives back in Hedeby and wants to leave with Erlendur’s wife, Torvi. Rollo is served divorce papers, but has by now learned the language, which impresses Gisla. He gives her his armring to show allegiance to her. In Wessex, King Aelle confronts Judith over her affair with King Ecbert. Meanwhile during the Yol celebrations in Kattegat, King Harald Finehair arrives and declares that he wants to become King of all Norway. Ragnar then arrives to see Harald sitting in his hall.
