The Thieves Title Shot

A thief is captured for stealing bread but appeals to Lancelot to consider his plight especially with the mark of a thief on his forehead. Sir Lancelot considers the thief’s words and speaks to the court about easing off the thieves. King Arthur and Sir Lancelot wager that they either could not live the life of a thief. As thieves, King Arthur and Sir Lancelot finally find out what it feels like to be a thief in Camelot.

This episode is a touching story of trying to make the elites realise the life of a beggar and thief. Sometimes in life the rich need to actually see what it is like to be on the other side. This is a well drawn out story and is in the list of good episodes in this series.
