In Norway, Olaf hunts down escaping pagans and has Svein kill one of them. Upon returning to Kattegat, Olaf meets with Ælfgifu who grows concerned for her son Svein’s safety. In London, Godwin tortures the captured assassin, but he is later killed to prevent Godwin from knowing who’s behind the conspiracy to kill Emma. In Jomsborg, Freydís arrives and meets its rulers, Lord Harekr and Lady Gudrid, who hope to turn Jomsborg into a “new Uppsala” with Freydís as their gyðja. In Novgorod, Leif and Harald arrive and meet with Harald’s uncle, Grand Prince Yaroslav the Wise, and Lord Vitomir. However, Yaroslav refuses to aid Harald so he can continue trading with Canute’s empire whilst the trade route to Constantinople is blocked by the Pechenegs. Leif meets Mariam, an Astrolabe maker, and has hallucinations of Liv. Hoping to buy an army with gold, Harald fights against the African warrior Kaysan, but despite Harald’s victory, he and his partner Batu flee with the winnings. Vitomir agrees to pay Harald to escort precious cargo past the Pechenegs. In an attempt to hallucinate Liv again, Leif takes opium but after nearly falling to his death, he collapses.
