Kim meets with Betsy and Craig Kettleman and proposes a plea deal that includes the return of the embezzled $1.6 million and 16 months in prison for Craig. Since losing a trial would mean 30 years in prison, she recommends Craig accept. Betsy refuses, maintaining Craig's innocence and denying there is any money to return. The Kettlemans fire Kim and hire Jimmy, who initially urges them to accept the plea bargain. Betsy blackmails Jimmy by pointing out that the "retainer" the Kettlemans paid him[b] implicates him in their crime. While picking up records from HHM, Jimmy discovers Kim has been demoted as a result of losing the Kettlemans as clients.
The next day, Jimmy visits the Kettlemans. When they discover the money missing, Betsy again threatens to reveal that Jimmy is also guilty. Jimmy replies that if she does, she will be guilty of a crime for bribing him. If Betsy and Craig are both convicted, the Kettleman children will grow up without parents. The Kettlemans agree to accept Kim's plea deal, deciding that only one parent going to prison is their best option. Knowing he is now unable to afford a new workspace, a frustrated Jimmy returns to his prospective office to vent his anger.

With the closure of the Pro-bending Arena, Korra tells Mako and Bolin that Tenzin has allowed them to stay on Air Temple Island. However, they inform her that Asami has already invited them to live in the Sato estate, her father's upscale home. As Asami shows up, she and Bolin, who is holding Pabu in his hands, convinces Korra to come over. Korra finally accepts the invitation and leaves the arena.
Back on the police airship, Korra tells the two brothers that they and Asami are still welcome to come live on Air Temple Island, a proposition which they now gladly accept. At the same time, Lin tells Tenzin that Tarrlok was right-that she has failed her duty as Chief of the Police Force, and is resigning the next morning. When Tenzin tells her not to give up, she replies that she is going to look for her men 'outside the law', and she hasn't given up. Korra then turns to Mako and tells him to go to Asami, knowing that she needs him. As he does so, she passionately hugs him as the airship slowly approaches the Republic City coastline at night.
From their newly set up camp, the Vikings attack the Northumbrians by cover of night. They are able to capture the king's brother Lord Æthelwulf. Ragnar demands a lot of money for the Vikings' peaceful departure. King Ælle agrees to this if one of the Vikings is baptized as a Christian. Rollo volunteers and is baptized. Instead of paying the monetary demands, Ælle attacks the Vikings' camp. Rollo in particular, fights extra hard to prove he hasn't forsaken the true gods. Ragnar sends Æthelwulf's body to the king and he finally pays the agreed upon amount. Back home Lagertha is ruling over Kattegat. Siggy offers Lagertha her services and Lagertha accepts.
Lord Æthelwulf has been charged with leading King Ælle's armies against Ragnar and his men. Ragnar sets up camp and waits for the Northumbrian soldiers to arrive. Meanwhile in Scandinavia, Lagertha runs Kattegat and deals with petitioners. Æthelwulf observes from above the camp that the Vikings have made. They decide not to strike but to somehow make the Vikings give up their position. Rollo and Ragnar are aware of them watching but Ragnar says that he first wants to see what they'll do. In the middle of the night, Ragnar and his group of men attack. They win and take the camp captive. Ragnar asks Æthelwulf if they shall go visit the King. King Ælle is upset that his brother has lost. The cardinal thinks that this is the work of God while another thinks it's the work of the devil. One lord thinks that they should just pay off the Vikings so that they'll go away. The Vikings arrive and are invited in to talk with King Ælle. Instead, they turn around and head back the way they came. They return later because Ragnar wants to see the way that they live. He is brought before King Ælle and they are invited to the feast. King Ælle asks what it would take for the Vikings to leave and to hand over his brother. Ragnar says two thousand pounds. The King accepts his terms but tells them that they must remain in their camp until he can round up that kind of money. He also says that he wants one of Ragnar's group to become Christian. Rollo volunteers to be baptized.
