The Adventures of Robin Hood Season 1 Episode 8: Queen Eleanor

Queen Eleanor is going around England getting funds to help the Crusades and King Richard the Lionheart. Prince John supporters wish to stop her from this fundraising effort so the Sheriff gets to work. His contribution to the Queen was only a rouse to get information on the sum of her fundraiser. Maid Marian calls for Robin to meet the Queen who tells Robin of the Sheriffs plan to alter the course she will take to escort the money to Richard. It is Robins responsibility to make sure the Sheriffs does not take away the money from the Queen but the Sheriff has a trick under his sleeve. Do not do what the enemy expects you to do is the mantra and the money must get to Richard the Lionheart.

Personal Synopsis

Queen Eleanor is here in England seeking money to help the crusades and get King Richard back to England for good. A valiant effort that Robin Hood and the Outlaws would definitely go along with. Of course the Sheriff wants the opposite and will attempt to foil the plans of Queen Eleanor. The Outlaws always seem to know when there is a trap and act accordingly. This episode is further developing the scope of reasons why Robin Hood and the Outlaws are so important for England.
