is thrown into the dungeons with him, called Mark. Robin plans to rescue John.

Davis) is to arrive the next day. Gisburne uses the prisoners to fetch stones

from the quarry, to begin work on the crumbling walls of the castle. Robin saves

Little John and Mark. Prince John is furious because the prisoners have escaped

and puts Gisburne in the dungeons; Gisburne is dragged away screaming that he

has something to tell him. Prince John orders De Leon to be acting sheriff. The

Abbot Hugo is summoned and promptly attends, Prince John shows him the prisoner,

'Richard Of Leaford', (George Baker). Robin is intrigued when John tells him

about the &quot;Hooded&quot; prisoner being escorted to the castle. Mark

suggests that he can lead Gisburne to the outlaws, giving them a chance to

&quot;storm&quot; the castle and save the prisoner. But Mark in incarcerated

with Gisburne in the Dungeons. Abbot Hugo leaves the castle to return to the

Abbey but is waylaid by Robin Hood. Hugo lets slip that Gisburne is in the

dungeons. Robin asks Hugo about Prince John's prisoner, reluctantly; very

reluctantly he reveals that it is Marion's father, Richard Of Leaford. Robin

dresses up as one of Hugo's guards and is able to enter into the castle, De Leon

tells Prince John that one of Hugo's guards has returned and that Hugo has been

taken prisoner by Robin Hood, who promptly sends De Leon out to capture the

outlaws. Robin is taken to the monks to heel his wounds. After the guards have

left Robin rescues 'Richard', meanwhile the Merry Men are scaling the wall using

scaffolding that has been used to repair the walls, and saves Mark. Back in the

forest, Marion is reunited with her father,<o:p>

poor De Leon, who is promptly put in prison. Richard has to go to France to tell

King Richard of John's treachery. John, Much, Scarlet and Tuck stay behind to

guard Hugo, to which Hugo blurts out about Marks identity, by saying that he

once worked for him. Much is sent to warn Robin and as Much is seen riding into

the distance, Clannads 'strange land' music is heard. Marion says farewell to

her father as he boards his boat to France with 'Mark'. Much gets there just in

time. Mark lunges for Richard with a knife and Robin manages to pull Mark from

the boat, where a fight ensues. Mark is taken prisoner and Richard sails to

France.<br>

A runner enters the castle with a message from Normandy. John is grieved about

the news of his brother Richard's death, by an arrow. Guisburne reacts to the

news by hailing &quot;God save King John&quot;. Herne appears and says,

watches on. Meanwhile the outlaws lie in wait for the Sheriff who is

transporting taxes. John, Nasir and Tuck decide not to send a signal to Robin

for assistance when they spot the Sheriff and his wagon. Tuck is injured in the

battle and they all manage to escape back to the forest, where an angry Robin

meets them. Robin and Will haven't been seeing eye to eye lately and Will's been

questioning Robin's leadership. The Sheriff arrives back at the castle furious

at Gisburne not meeting him. De Talmont, a Jew asks the Sheriff for his money

that was loaned to him. The Sheriff is not happy with De Talmont and tells

Gisburne, about the time at King Richards Coronation when the people killed lots

of Jews and then a year later in York, it was all put down to Crusading mania.

Nottingham. De Talmont ensures Sarah that the Sheriff will pay his debt even if

he squirms and wriggles. The Merries return to Sherwood Forest with Tuck, Robin

is not happy and accuses Will of instigating the attack; Will walks off into the

Forest. Robin goes to Herne, who reassures Robin that he must aim his arrow

again, for no purpose or to no end but that it is enough to aim. Sarah is given

a message to leave Nottingham, De Talmont knows that the danger is real and

leaves for Lincoln. The streets of Nottingham are awash with people rioting and

killing Jews. The Captain of the Guard finds the note in De Talmont's house.

Robin and the Merries go in search of Will. Gisburne tells the Sheriff that De

Talmont is dead. Will finds some Jews in the forest and steals their money, and

if they didn't think they had had enough bad luck, Gisburne takes Sarah for his

wife and leaves the children with De Talmont. De Talmont runs after Gisburne and

collapses on the track. Robin and the Merries enter the scene and find some

children under a log pile and they learn about Gisburne and their father, De

Talmont. Robin and Nasir go after Gisburne and meet Will on the way, who tells

them about seeing Gisburne in the Forest. They head Gisburne off and rescue

Sarah, at which point, Will looks slightly embarrassed and hands the money over

to Sarah. Stating to Robin that he's been wrong before and reaffirms Robin's

leadership. Meanwhile the Sheriff is in hot pursuit of Gisburne and captures the

Outlaws, De Talmont, and the children instead. The Sheriff searches De Talmont's

baggage and finds the sacred book, to which De Talmont warns him not to look in

it. The Sheriff ignores his advice and opens the book. The Sheriff starts to

hallucinate and while his men are watching, the Outlaws and Robin attack the

soldiers. Robin kneels before the muttering Sheriff and hits him across the ace.

The Sheriff comes to his senses. They are tried and accused by Sarah who wants

an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, De Talmont steps in and says that the

sweetest thing anyone can do is forgive. Much picks up the book and asks De

Talmont what the Sheriff saw, to which he replies &quot;his own

wickedness&quot;.<o:p>

Abbot Hugo is incensed by<o:p>

<p class="MsoPlainText" style="text-align:justify"><span style="mso-fareast-font-family:

&quot;MS Mincho&quot;">Gisburne sentencing one of his men. Guy 'The Gamekeeper'

listens to a report by one of his men, telling him about the sudden increase of

poaching and that it always happens at this time of the year on the account of

the 'Blessing' and that no blood can be split. Hugo knows about it and Gisburne

as never heard of it, and is warned by Hugo not to go into the forest at night.

In a tavern somewhere in Nottinghamshire a group of mercenary's wreak havoc. A

boy from the tavern is summoned to get Robin. Back at the castle Gisburne waits

for the arrival of his old friend, Bertrand De Nivelle (Oliver Tobias).

Gisburne’s mercenary friends do not impress Hugo. Gisburne tells Hugo that he

intends to use Bertrand to kill Robin and the Merries. Celebrations start in the

forest, singing, dancing and feasting. Herne appears at a gathering in the

forest at the start of the blessing. Children bring food to Herne. The Merries

are met by a boy who tells them about the Merc's, Clannad's 'Scarlet' Theme

plays in the background and Scarlet is frustrated when Robin tells him they

can't follow, because the men are mounted. Robin promises that they will get

them. Gisburne goes to Wickham with Bertrand and his men to look for venison,

they make a mockery of Herne's tree and Gisburne tries to hack it down with an

axe. Gisburne goes to see Abbot Hugo about the villagers worshipping paganism

and witchcraft. Hugo says as long as they go to church, the children get

baptised he's not bothered what else they got up to. Hugo warns Gisburne not to

meddle, as the old Gods may not be dead as he thinks. Gisburne scorns at the

warning and leaves. The Merries catch up into the Merc's and try to lure them

into a bloodless trap, because weapons cannot be used on account of the

blessing, so they plan to use a net. Gisburne uses his brain for once and

realises that they are about to be ambushed so they don't follow Gisburne goes

to the village for some food and drink and when they are eating some 'Mummers'

come to the village and perform a play about St George. The Merries attack the

Merc's, (the 'Mummers' are really the Merries in disguise), what a shock! With

the Merc's tied up, the Villagers and the Merries go into the forest for the

final blessing. The Merc's manage to escape and follow them into a clearing

where Herne appears. Bertran shoots Herne with a crossbow. A fight takes place

and Herne leaves to go into the forest, Gisburne follows. Herne meets Robin, and

Gisburne is left to his own devices, with the trees and the spirit of the

forest. A rather cut, bruised and battered Gisburne goes to the Abbey for

sanctuary. Hugo has no sympathy. The Merc's leave the shire but visit the tavern

before they go. A &quot;hooded man&quot; sits at a table and they tease and poke

fun at him. Unmasked, Robin Hood attacks them and the rest of the Merries come

rushing in. Bertrand escapes from the tavern and Robin follows, they fight and

Bertrand falls, he offers his sword to Marion and pulls her towards him.

Captured, Bertrand takes Marion as a keepsake. Mounted they ride off. Robin

takes his bow and kills Bertrand, the rest of the surviving Merc's are taken to

the village where Robin tells them never to return to Sherwood, and if they do,

then by Herne the Hunter they will be buried there. Edward and Robin say

farewell and the Merries are seen crossing the bridge over the river. What's

this Tuck gets a peck on the cheek by one of the village women, shameful.<o:p>

him who controls the Hounds to ride, the lady of the Cauldron of Lucifer (the

most powerful coven in England), Morgwyn of Ravenscar, the Abbess. Adam a broken

man kills himself, so he doesn't have to live with the guilt and shame.&nbsp;</span></p>

waylaid by the Earls soldiers. They arrest him and Verdelet sees Robin’s

sword, the seventh sword of Wayland. Much watches, and reports back to the

Merries. Verdelet reports back to Morgwyn about the sword and that the Earl now

has the sword. Morgwyn goes to see the Earl and recovers the sword. Marion knows

the Earl and goes to help Robin escape from the castle. The Merries chase after

Morgwyn to get the sword back, but when they confront her she puts a spell on

them. When night falls Marion rescues Robin from the cells of the castle. The

Earl watches as she escapes from the castle with Robin and smiles to himself

contentedly. Robin and Marion meet the Merries in the forest and realise that

they are bewitched, they are eventually captured and are taken to the Abbess. A

Mad Man meets them on the cliff at Ravenscar and cuts Robins bindings and Robin

jumps off the cliff into the sea. Robin is seen floating face down and the

Merries report to Morgwyn that Robin is dead. She then releases them from the

spell and puts them in a cage. Robin reaches the foot of the cliff and begins to

climb; he reaches the top and meets the Mad Man, who gives him a bow and some

arrows. Robin leaves him and the Mad Man turns to face a figure, far off on the

shoreline, what a shock, its Herne.&nbsp;</span></p>

<p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align:justify;line-height:12.0pt;mso-hyphenate:

Cauldron to bring Lucifer from his bonding in hell. Robin enters the gates of

the Abbey as the ceremony begins, and Lucifer begins to form within the

cauldron. Meanwhile the Merries are in a cage, which is been lowered into a fire

pit beneath them. Robin fights Verdelet and kills him. Robin rushes to the

cauldron and takes up Albion, Lucifer screams and is sent back to hell. Morgwyn

and the rest of the Cauldron are mortified and there is panic and mayhem. The

Merries take up the other swords and fight the Hounds and the Cauldron members.

All dead, Robin commands all the swords to be put down in the centre of the

cauldron, except Albion, of course. Morgwyn is seen running from the Abbey and

is trampled down by the Hounds, but I thought they were all killed. The Merries

leave the village of Ufcombe and return to Sherwood.<o:p>

the forest. The Sheriff is having his beard shaved off. When a messenger from

the king arrives. Hubert de Gisguard, Herald to the king, he says that the king

wants an end to the Wolfshead, Robin Hood. The Sheriff has been given a month to

bring the outlaw to justice or he will be stripped of his office and sent to

him &quot;Who is the greatest enemy”? Robin thinks of De Belleme and asks

Herne if he will be there. Herne says no you must face him alone, but iterates

that we cannot be parted. Meanwhile the Sheriff organises a hunt to catch the

Outlaws. Edward and his son Geoffery are brought to the sheriff and remind him

of Loxley. The Sheriff gives Edward an ultimatum, to capture the Outlaws in

Wickham. Geoffery takes a message to Robin Hood. The Merries enter the village

cautiously. Will is sent in a few yards ahead and sees the Sheriffs mens in the

huts and shouts Ambush. The Sheriffs men who are hiding in the village huts open

fire on the Merries as they duck and dive. Robin, Marion, Tuck and Much escape

into the forest and John and Will are captured and tied up in a hut with Edward.

The Sheriff is displeased with Gisburne, and takes the Hounds to hunt down Robin

and the others. Nasir is talking to a couple of Arabs in the forest and they try

to kill him but Nasir fights back and kills them. Robin hears the barking of

hunting Hounds and then recounts Hernes telling of who is the Greatest Enemy and

realises that it was the Sheriff. Tuck can't run any further so they put him up

a tree to hide. As the Sheriff's men pass, Tuck drops one of his shoes and is

seen, Tuck is captured and sent back to the village. Nasir is stopped by two of

the villagers who tell them of Robin and the fight. Nasir enters the village,

stealthily killing soldiers on his way through, but eventually he is seen and

after another fight he is also taken prisoner. Much asks Nasir who those men

were, Nasir tells them that they were Assassins and that he was one of

them.&nbsp;</span></p>

no avail and then try to outflank them. Marion asks Robin are they are going to

die, to which Robin replies, everyone dies. The Sheriff sends his men down the

valley to approach from the opposite side. Robin tells Much to go with Marion

and to lie low till it's dark. Much asks Robin about his escape; Robin says he

will see them later, much later. Much is left to watch the Sheriff's men while

Robin talks to Marion. Marion doesn't want to leave, Robin says he thought that

she had more courage and that dieing was easy. Marion breaks down and cries,

Robin comforts her and tells her that she must live to keep alive all that they

have believed in, Marion agrees. Robin tells Marion to leave now because the

Sheriff's men will cut off their escape. Robin gives Marion, Albion and with

Much make their escape. The Sheriff marches forward and Robin deals with them.

The Sheriff asks how many arrows does the man have, to which Robin pulls out his

last arrow and knocks it on to the bowstring. Robin draws his bow for the last

time and sets it in flight over the head of the Sheriff. Robin turns around to

be faced by crossbow men. Robin breaks his bow and the order to shoot is given.
