Emperor Charles sends Count Odo with the booty that was agreed to but a month later, the vikings have yet to leave. Odo learns that Ragnar is dying and that he would like to have a Christian burial. Ragnar's conversion to Christianity does not sit well with his warriors who all agree that he cannot continue as king now that he has rejected their gods but they are simply biding their time. When the day of Ragnar's funeral arrives, he is taken to the cathedral for the funeral mass. The vikings have a surprise in store for everyone.

[Going to her knees, whispering
And yet, I think Odin will rise like the wind to rescue you and take you to Valhalla where you belong, my own sweet Ragnar. And there... there we shall meet again. And fight and to drink and... love one another.
