Personal Synopsis

This episode is about treachery in the ranks. A local Baron with high hopes on the prize of King of England takes over a castle. The episode features a rather large cast and features two female characters, a pretty rare casting call. It is a good watch and I find the story interesting enough for another watch some time later.
