The first battle in this war for power and Kattegat favored Queen Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) and Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig). However Ivar (Alex Høgh Andersen) doesn’t seem to be done yet, even as Bjorn attempts to reason with him, he remains defiant.
It also appears that a rift is developing between King Harald (Peter Franzén) and Ivar since King Harald doesn’t seem to agree with Ivar’s tactics. As for Queen Lagertha, she and Bishop Heahmund (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) are getting to know each other.
Floki (Gustaf Skarsgård), meanwhile, is dealing with the increasing strife between Kjetill (Adam Copeland) and Eyvind (Kris Holden-Ried) and other colony members.
