ROBIN HOOD For England

Season Two Episode 6
Midway through the season and still the wicked Sheriff is holding the townsfolk in his sway, in the sixth episode which is airing on BBC One Saturday 10 November the Sheriff's Black Knights gather at the castle to attend a feast and declare their allegiance to Prince John by signing the Great Pact of Nottingham. With the outlaws disguised as entertainers, Robin infiltrates the castle to join forces with the only man who can stop them: former Sheriff Edward's old ally and Black Knight, the Sheriff of Winchester. Winchester's territory is key to the Sheriff's Shah Mat plan that will apprehend a homecoming King Richard at the southern ports.

Once Robin is satisfied he has convinced Winchester to stand up to the Sheriff, he sends the outlaws on a diversionary mission and writes a farewell letter to Marian. Preparing to make his greatest sacrifice alone for King Richard and England, Robin hopes to finish Shah Mat once and for all by killing all the Black Knights.

As Robin enters the feast disguised as a Black Knight, he's in for a terrible shock: Winchester is revealed to be corrupt and has double-crossed Robin, lining him up for the Sheriff to kill. With Marian added as a sweetener to his deal, Winchester has set Robin up. Surrounded by a roomful of enemies, Robin faces certain death alone. Only with the help of his outlaw gang can he hope to fight for his life...
