- Ragnar!
- Again?
- Yes.
- It's the last time, I promise.
- One more son, I swear.
- If it's not, I will take your cock.

- The ale is good.
- It is.
- Very good.
- To the creators of fine ale!
- May god... bless them.
- May the gods bless them. Him.

- Agreed. The seer is mine.
- Then step back and she will walk to you.
- And then you leave.
- I will.
- And you are cursed once more, uhtred of bebbanburg.
- You shall wither!
- Open, let her pass.

Haesten: Good morning, nun!
- I am an abbess.
[Chuckling] I don't care.
- We will wait... for aethelflaed!
- To the hall, all of you, quickly, now!
- That's it.

- Well, perhaps.
- But I know when I'm hearing half-truths.
- I do not like him.
- Ugh, I like her even less.
- Nor I you, hag.
- She reminds me of my mother, and that woman was never wrong either.

- Do not get yourself killed...
- Until aethelflaed is safe.
- That would be unfortunate.
- It would.
- And I would have had a wasted journey.
- Aethelflaed is important to the king and to all saxons.
- After she is safe, what then?
- Fate will decide.

- This does not mean the Princess is forgiven, uhtred.
- She is safe for now, no more than that.
- Leave! Go!

- Hmm, charming.
- Aethelhelm, I shall bring you into my confidence immediately.
- War is coming, your lands are under threat.
- Danes are marching in numbers from north to south.
- Let us pray for the strength and fortitude to defeat them once again.
- Join me.

- Get up.
- He took me by surprise.
- Otherwise, I would have made a contest.
- You were right to speak out.
- He should never have been allowed to leave.
- That was...
- Weak of my cousin.

- Tomorrow, ragnar will become a different man.
- Once it is done, you will have my protection.
- Fdend.
- Very well.
- Tonight.

- If you wish to sit with me, you will respect me.
- Oh, I respect you very much.
- Though I do not wish to sit with you, brida. I wish to lie with you.
[Laughs] You should go while you still have a tongue in your head.
- I like that you are proud and strong and loyal...
- And I will go now.

- And you can tell him aethelflaed is well.
- Lord, if a Dane army is fast approaching, then there is only one path to take.
- To join Alfred.
- Tojoin him and to preserve mercia.
- Then we shall fight, aldhelm.
- And with luck, the right people shall die.
