Lagertha and Bjorn have arrived to help Ragnar in the fight against Jarl Borg. Bjorn and Ragnar went into town under the dark of night, setting fire to Borg's winter supplies. Borg has no choice but to retaliate.
The battle is too much for Jarl Borg's men. After sustaining massive casualties, Borg and his men retreat.
Back in town, a sacrifice is to be made to the gods. Rollo goes to do the deed, but Ragnar pulls him back at the last minute, handing the ax to Bjorn to prove himself. Bjorn chops a man's head off, and the warriors smear the man's blood over their faces.
Ragnar tells Lagertha he doesn't want her or Bjorn to leave, even though Aslaug is not happy about it.
King Horik was attacked in Wessex, and most of the men were slaughtered.
No one knows what happened to Athelstan. He is being held captive by King Ecbert. Athelstan is being haunted by visions of demons.
Lagertha reveals she is leaving to return to her husband. She gives Bjorn permission to stay with Ragnar and his half-brothers.
