The Vikings Valhalla Season 1 opens with a scene of utter chaos and bloodbath. Harald leaves for Norway, and Athelred successfully slaughters every Viking who comes in his way. The news of this butchery quickly spreads around the town, and King Canute becomes hungry for revenge.
Freddy and Lief are hungry for the blood of the Vikings who attacked and raped Freydis. After brutally murdering the culprit, Lief needs to pledge his services to Freydis to repay his ‘debt.’ In the background, Aethelred the Unready succumbs to death, and his wife, Emma of Normandy, and son Prince Edmund are left alone to face the wrath and attacks of the angry Vikings.
