A story of revenge
The events of God of War Ragnarok take place three years after those of God of War (2018). If you have followed the story correctly, you know that Baldur, the son of Odin and Freya is dead. The latter would therefore be motivated by revenge and would like to make Kratos pay for Baldur’s death.
In God of War, Baldur was sent by Odin to capture Kratos and Atreus. To accomplish his mission, Baldur set off in search of Faye, Kratos’ wife. But it was without knowing that she had died shortly before her arrival. In fact, Odin is the one who sent Baldur to find Faye, as she was secretly a Jotnar.

Odin thought Faye would help him find a way to Jotunheim. Baldur, for his part, believed that Kratos and Atreus were the Jotnar. So he went after them until his death in God of War. Baldur’s death will play a huge role in the alliance between Freya and Odin.
In 184040God of War (1600), Freya reveals that the he thought of losing his son made him resent him. In the game, we learn that she placed a Vanir spell on him to make him invincible. Although it worked, it resulted in Baldur’s inability to feel emotions.
This spell was broken though when Baldur accidentally impaled his hand with the tip of the mistletoe arrow that was on Atreus’ quiver. And it was this event that ultimately led to Baldur’s death.
