Meanwhile, Lief is searching for Thorfinn. The episode is titled “For the Love That Was Lost” and the official website describes the plot as:

Canute plans to take over Ketil’s farm. However, Ormal, unaware of the conspiracy, is insulted by Canute’s messenger and challenges him to a duel. Thorgil also appears there, and the situation becomes irreversible.

Studio MAPPA is animating the second season of Vinland Saga anime, which is based on Makoto Yukimura’s manga. The staff for the episode includes:

The theme songs for this season of the anime are “River” by Anonymouz (opening song) and “Without Love” by LMYK (ending theme). Crunchyroll and Netflix are streaming the anime, which is set to have 24 episodes that will air in two consecutive cours. Crunchyroll describes the plot of the second season as:
A new millennium begins in the southern part of the Jutland peninsula in Denmark. After the death of his longtime enemy, Askeladd, Thorfinn lost his purpose in life. He was bought by the landowner Ketil as a “slave” and engaged in land reclamation work on his farm. Thorfinn meets a young man there, Einar, who was also a slave like him. The encounter of Einar led Thorfinn to face the sins he had committed and began to find meaning in life. On the other hand, Canute, who became the King of England, attempted to extend his territory for the establishment of “the promised land”. This is “The Story of a True Warrior (Saga)”. “The story of Atonement and Salvation (Saga)” that lies beyond the prologue.
