Viking raids are increasing in the north so King Arthur sends Valiant, Gawain, Bryant, and Kay with Duncan to tell them that their message of peace was received and accepted and Mordred was exiled once it was learned he was their ambassadors' murderer. But just as they are to leave with the ring as proof, they find someone has stolen it. After being attacked at sea, they arrive to find Mordred already there having forged his own treaty with King Olaf claiming it was from Camelot. Arthur has his own problems to deal with at home as more people blame immigrants for every crime, some of them committed by Maldon and his followers, and insist on the banishment of each one.

Was meant to air just prior to "A New Dawn" as the beginning of the final story arc, but was produced early then aired shortly afterwards. This resulted in the actual arc being the only one of the series which was played out in four rather than at least five episodes. This is why Allyn, Maldon's victim near the end who is unnamed here, and Simon have different voice actors than theirs in "The New Dawn" and afterwards. See more
