The Adventures of Sir Lancelot Episode 22: Double Identity

Double Identity Title Shot

A young knight who can fight with both of his hands is getting married and Sir Lancelot is the best man. He is marrying Lady Margaret and once they are married they would have one of the largest estates in all of England. On his was to a meeting, Sir Richard is kidnapped by a group of mysterious knights. Sir Richard appears at his castle but something isn’t right. People around Sir Richard are noticing that something is different about and he can’t fight with both hands.

Personal Synopsis

An episode with an impersonator trying to obtain more land and power. The plot was foiled when a particular talent was not shared between Sir Richard and the impersonator. A decent episode that shows the extent that one would go to, to fill their greed. The acting in this episode is good in comparison to previous episodes, its nice to have actors like John Bailey.
