Northumbria; When Edgar spots Uhtred and Brida outside his village, he attempts to shoot them with arrows before Brida hurls her axe into his back. Edgar informs them that it was Danes who murdered the other villagers, as punishment for a rebel Saxon slave who rose up and murdered his Danish master. When Brida demands the name of this alleged "rebel Saxon slave", he says it was Uhtred. Out of mercy, Uhtred kills Edgar, putting him out of his misery. ("Episode 1.2")
