This season of 10 episodes kicks off with the start of King Edward’s reign. Still guiding his son, his father Alfred asks Uhtred to pledge his loyalty to his son, something he refuses to do. The reason is revealed in the show.
One of the new attractions of this season is the romance between Uthred and Alfred’s daughter. After her husband’s death, he arranges to have Aethelflaed on the throne and as an ally of Edward’s Wessex.
In the finale, a Danish warrior Sygtrygrr captures Winchester and threatens to kill one of Edward’s sons. Uhtred again proves his loyalty to the Saxons and negotiates with him. In turn, he loses his daughter, Sierra.
Uhtred’s best friend, Brida’s hate grows towards him as he let her live as a slave instead of killing her.
In the last episodes, King Edward asks Uhtred to take Aethelstan to safety and train him so that he is away from his shrewd wife.
The trailer was released in the first week of April. It provides valuable insights into Uhtred’s loyalty and his romance and also king Edward’s challenges.
