To weaken King Edward's forces, Sigtryggr takes the bold step of striking Aethelhelm's army en route to meet the King of Scotland.

Sigtryggr's army is dominant in the battle until suddenly King Edward pulls in. Edward's goal is to come to apprehend Aethelhelm, but accidentally thanks to his arrival, Aethelhelm has the chance to  escape.

Sigtryggr is defeated and captured. Edward offered a condition that Sigtryggr must accept to convert to Christianity in order to be spared, but Sigtryggr refuses. Following Sigtryggr's will to die at the hands of England's mightiest warrior, Uhtred reluctantly becomes Sigtryggr's executioner.

Fearing Edward's expansion, King Constantin of Scotland forms an alliance with the Lords of Northumbria, including Uhtred's cousin Wihtgar, who killed his biological father to claim the throne of Bebbanburg from Uhtred.

Aethelhelm plans to join Constantin, with the immediate goal of capturing Aelfwynn to serve as a "gift".
