Nah. The pace is picking up, farmland saga is most definitely over. From the look of the current chapter Ketil's farm will be seized and everyone fit to fight will be drafted. Thorofinn, Einor, and Snake will likely be enlisted and sent to England to fight.

Leif is kind of a wildcard in all of these emerging connections. If they meet again, I can't imagine Thorofinn being freed. Freedom means he can escape war and violence, I don't think he has progressed far enough for that yet. He's going back to the battle field soon. His freedom will be won in combat, from there he will lead a fleet back to Vinland, as colonists not conquerors.
Just re-read the last chapters, there I noticed something. Ketil said he would declare them free man after he returns from his trip. What if Canute seizes Ketil, when he tries to get into Canute's favor and this way Thorfinn and Einer won't be able to become free? Maybe they'll escape together with the escaped slave after Canute grabs the land?
