Following the Battle for Kattegat, Forkbeard’s forces are victorious and Olaf and his surviving men are captured. Leif hunts for Olaf with the hope of exacting revenge for the death of Liv and whilst in Kattegat, meets Jorundr Torvilsson, a mysterious stranger. To prevent his own execution, Olaf strikes a deal with Forkbeard that keeps his now captured son, Magnus, alive in exchange for Olaf helping Canute’s eldest son, Svein Knutsson, rule as King of Norway. Forkbeard’s forces then depart from Kattegat. In London, Godwin grows concerned regarding Emma’s safety due to Canute’s continued absence and successfully prevents an assassination attempt. Meanwhile, Freydís and Harald are in hiding and learn that many pagans now revere Freydís whilst Jomsvikings are taking them to Jomsborg for safety. They soon reunite with Leif who had tracked down bounty hunters sent to kill Harald. Jorundr, having followed Leif, reveals that he’s a Jomsviking and agrees to help them escape. They successfully evade Olaf’s forces and are rescued by Jorundr’s longships and Freydís secretly reveals to Leif that she is pregnant with Harald’s child. Harald and Leif then depart, hoping to get aid from Harald’s uncle in Novgorod whilst Freydís sails for Jomsborg.
