Guided by Bishop Heahmund's visions, the Saxons devise a battle plan. Ivar the Boneless strategizes on his own as the Vikings undergo increasing pressure. Bjorn Ironside finds himself in a new territory and must convince the local commander he is a trader and not a raider.
Bishop Heahmund advises King Aethelwulf to keep York under siege and stop the supply of food and water. In his visions, the Northemen will die weakened by the lack of supplies. But Ivar has a secret plan to protect his countrymen. Bjorn Ironside arrives at Sicily posing of trader and lures the commander of the town. Ubbe returns to Katagaat and forms an alliance with Lagherta against Harald and Ivar and Hvitserk. Floki continues his mythic journey.
The Saxons put their hope on warrior bishop Heahmund's visions of starving the Vikings in besieged York, but Ivar prepares another trap for Aethelwulf's troops. Bjorn starts doubting his guide Sinric who advised masquerading as traders, since the renegade Byzantine governor on Sicily, Euphemius, turns out a vassal of the Moorish emirate of North Africa, who is eager to engage the Vikings, like the Byzantine court, as his bodyguard, which Bjorn accepts for now. Returned from Wessex to Kattegat, Ubbe accepts a pact offered by equally sidetracked Lagertha for revenge on both king Harald and Ivar, who meanly treats 'deserter' Hvitserk as a lapdog. Delirious Floki believes to have arrived in a divine island paradise which he wishes to share with his folk.
