You were right.

Some of them do have brains.

More than can be said

for you, you f***ing animal.

Good that we wet

our blades so quickly.

They were just farmers.

Well, now they're

farming in hell.

The rest of our boats

will be in by nightfall.

Bring up the horses.

Halfdan can follow

once they've landed.

My father's not a patient man.

Grim, jokul.

If he's a Saxon, he's gonna

have a f*** of a surprise

- when he rides into us.

- That's no Saxon.

So this is our welcome.

Vali, what's happened?

The omens promised victory

if we attacked early.

The gods were against us.

Your father's badly

wounded, steinar.

Take me to him.


Better late than never.

I came when I said I would.

And this is the army

you brought with you?

He was fed gruel at first light.

The onions can already be

smelled through his stomach.

If his guts are pierced,

there's nothing more we can do.

How long?

A week, maybe less.

Listen, steinar,

I know we haven't

always seen eye to eye,

but we're still

brothers after all

and I want you to know

that when I'm king

I'll make sure you're

taken care of.

The omens

deceived us, steinar.

An army of 500

are only hours behind me.

All this talk of reason...

Sounds like a cover-up

for weakness.

We lie here because we have

no choice.

We need land!

We either take it

or our people perish.

We may have lost

the battle, father,

but we can still win the war.

And who'll lead them?


In all your f***ing finery?

I will lead our army, father.

You're no more fit than he is.

Once, maybe.

But after your mother left...

You changed,

turned your back on the gods.

Thought you knew better, huh?

I am strong enough to be king.

Then prove it.

Your half brother...

My bastard son...

Refused to enter

the field of battle.

I made him swear an oath

to wait till I returned.

You know the punishment for those

that turn their back in combat.

See it's done.

I will do it, father.

Leave him, Harald. Leave him!

Get out, now!

Not you, steinar.

There's a man worthy

of this crown,

a man with fire in his heart,

brave enough

to wield the hammer

of the gods...

My firstborn.

You said you'd kill anyone

who mentioned his name.

The time has passed.

Nobody knows where he is.

He hasn't been seen for years.

Find your brother.

Find hakan.

Return with a king

who will lead us to victory.

I am needed here.

I may be dying,

but I'm still your king.

Defy me again,

and I will cut

your heart out myself.

Now swear

on the memory of your mother.

I swear.

You're out of your f***ing mind.

- I swore an oath.

- Oaths are horseshit, steinar.

I gave him my word.

I will not break it.

Hakan is almost certain

to be dead by now.

And if he's not, he was f***ing

insane before he was banished;

He'll only be more so now.

Anyway, who knows

where the f*** he is?

- You do.

- It's too dangerous.

Dangerous, is it?

Then you must know where he is.

Listen, say I do know...

Which I don't, but say I did...

What makes you think

he'd come back?

It's the king's wish.

The king will be dead in a week.

Bide your time. Be close

at hand when he dies.

And when the moment's right, you

take the crown for yourself.

We'd all back you

against Harald.

Think about it.

When I said I didn't know where

hakan was, I spoke the truth.

But I do know how to find

the last man who saw him.

Whether he's capable of helping

us remains to be seen.

- Going somewhere?

- It doesn't concern you, grim.

Let us pass.

- Like f***.

- You'd think differently.

If you knew where we were going.
