At a meeting to discuss the summer raids Ragnar Lothbrok urges Earl Haraldson to send his ships to the west to raid an island called England. Ragnar believes he's found a way across the open sea using a rudimentary navigational device and a sunstone. Haraldson refuses saying he doesn't believe there is anything to the west. Ragnar visits a seer to learn what the future has in store for him and is told that he should take the law into his own hands. He decides to get a new boat of his own. Written by

At the end of the first battle scene with Ragnar and Rollo standing in the field, Ragnar witnesses an old man walking among the dead. This old man is the God Odin who was said to be a shapeshifter, and he is able to alter his form in any way he liked. Odin was said to travel the world mostly as an old man with a staff, one-eyed, grey-bearded, and wearing a wide-brimmed hat, with a traveling coat. Ragnar witnesses what most Vikings never did, Odin.
