On the Dnieper river, the boat’s rudder breaks, forcing the crew to stop. Leif and Harald travel to nearby ruins and smith a new rudder as Leif tells him about Freydís’ pregnancy. A lone Varangian, Baggi, discovers the grounded boat and recognises Kurya as the disgraced brother of the Pecheneg Khan before departing. A paranoid Gestr is then overthrown by the crew. Baggi later returns with several others, and they fight with the crew. As Leif and Harald return, Baggi and his men are killed and Gestr is stabbed to death by his slaves. In London, Emma prays for forgiveness for having caused Aelfwynn’s death as Godwin and Gytha mourn her. Agnarr informs Emma that Godwin paid a large sum of money to a man known as “The Bear” days before her attempted assassination. Imprisoned in Jomsborg, Freydís gives birth to a son, who she names Harald. Harekr soon steals the child and claims him as his own which angers the neglected Jorundr. Harekr then tells Jorundr to kill Freydís in order to regain his trust. However, Jorundr helps rescue baby Harald and fakes Freydís’ death before fleeing Jomsborg. Harekr soon intercepts them and Freydís flees alone.
