Olaf’s forces arrive in Pomerania, and Olaf tells Jorundr about his father, convincing him to reveal Jomsborg’s location. Olaf then meets with Freydís whilst Gudrid gives Jorundr a secret message. Jorundr then leads Hallbjorn, Olaf’s second-in-command, to an ambush at Jomsborg’s sentinel and they kill each other. Olaf’s forces enter Jomsborg and Freydís leads them into a trap, burning them all alive. An enraged Olaf fights with Freydís until she impales him with a spear, killing him, leaving Svein as the sole survivor. Freydís later brings Svein to Kattegat in exchange for peace with Ælfgifu. In London, despite Emma’s protests, Godwin and Gytha are married, making their future children in line for the English throne. Emma gifts Gytha Godwin’s father’s ring to torment Godwin as a reminder of his father’s shameful past as a disgraced Sussex nobleman. On the Dnieper river, Mariam’s condition forces the crew to stop. Alone with Leif, she gifts him the key to her home in Constantinople before succumbing to her illness. The Byzantine Emperor, Romanos, travels to meet the crew, revealing Eleana as his betrothed and Harald gains his favor. Their journey now complete, the crew finally reach Constantinople.
