As the 7th episode begins, Uhtred (Alexander Dreymon) and his army return to camp. Beocca (Ian Hart) panics when he cannot find his new wife. Seconds later, Thyra (Julia Bache-Wiig) emerges from the woods. She tells Aethelred (Toby Regbo) and the others about the attack. She admits she doesn’t know whether or not Aethelflaed (Millie Brady) was taken. Nevertheless, Uhtred and the others are convinced Erik (Christian Hillborg) and his men took her. Meanwhile, Erik, Sigefrid (Bjorn Bengtsson) and their army transport Aethelflaed to Beamfleot. On the way back to Wessex, Aldhelm (James Northcote) and Aethelred attempt to figure out what to tell Alfred. Uhtred and his men go home, while Beocca and the others continue towards Wessex. Aethelwold (Harry McEntire) reminds Beocca that Uhtred has basically been banished by Alfred. Later that night, Uhtred discusses his plans with Finan (Mark Rowley).

They eventually come to a fairer agreement. Aethelred wakes up naked in the pigpen. He enters the bar and is covered up by Aldhelm. Aethelflaed is given time to pray, while Uhtred speaks with Erik alone. Uhtred makes it clear he knows about Erik’s feelings for the girl. Erik doesn’t deny it. He also admits he cannot let her go. Then, Uhtred speaks with Aethelflaed in private. She admits she doesn’t want to come home. Uhtred tries to convince her that her relationship with Erik will fail. Aethelflaed pleads with Uhtred to help her escape with Erik. He insists Alfred would have them both killed. Again, she pleads with Uhtred to save her life, as well as the nations of Wessex and Mercia with it. The episode ends before Uhtred can give an answer.

The Last Kingdom Review

The second season of The Last Kingdom has been really solid. There have been plenty of twist and turns, as well as a lot of action and humor. Now, Uhtred has a big decision to make. It is clear he is torn between his loyalty to Alfred and his desire to help Aethelflaed escape her horrible husband. Aethelred has proven to be unreliable, yet Alfred sees the man as his key to Mercia. Alfred has been blinded by his passion to unite the kingdoms and he has paid dearly for his mistake. Plus, we have Sihtric playing spy and Odda up to god knows what.

The finale should be good. This episode was great. It was nice to see Alfred and Aelswith forced to grovel for Uhtred’s help. An 8.5 out of 10 is deserved. Previous recaps of The Last Kingdom are available now.
