"Robin Hood is dead"

Sir Jasper, Prince John's envoy (Lee Ross), has come to Nottingham. Prince John is angry at the failure of the Sheriff (Keith Allen) to kill King Richard in the Holy Land, so he has levied a tax on the Sheriff - of 1000 crowns a month. The Sheriff is initially aghast, but then realises he has no choice but to pay the tax.

Meanwhile, Tuck (David Harewood) has found Robin Hood, unconscious, seemingly dead.

The next morning at Locksley Manor...


Episode 9 - A Dangerous Deal


Most of Guy's scenes in this episode take place in the castle dungeon where he awaits his execution, having been sentenced to death by his sister Isabella, the new Sheriff of Nottingham.

With him in the dungeon is Meg (Holliday Grainger), a young woman who has been thrown into jail by Isabella's husband. Initially antagonistic towards each other, over the course of several scenes Guy and Meg draw closer.


"What are you staring at?"

In this first scene, Meg is thrown into the dungeon.


"Just leave it"

Their sniping at each other continues...


"Are you scared?"

In this scene, their talk turns to Guy's impending execution.


"You must eat"

Isabella has now released Meg from the dungeon. But Meg secretly returns with some food for Guy.

The next morning, Guy is led out to the castle courtyard to be executed. Guy and Meg's story plays out over the remainder of the episode, a moving counterpoint to the heroics of Robin and his gang.
