Lagertha was alone in the woods away from Hedeby armed with arrows and a bow. Her quarry appeared in front of her: an owl. Lagertha shot the owl, stunning it.
Around this time Astrid found Lagertha. She stood still as Lagertha picked up the owl. Astrid knew it wasn't like Lagertha to kill an owl.
Lagertha motioned to Astrid to come close to the stunned owl as it was waking up. "This owl will live with us," Lagertha said.
Knowing Lagertha was still reeling from her miscarriage, Astrid nodded. "It will be a welcome addition to our household," Astrid said.
