The Adventures of Robin Hood Season 1 Episode 10: The Ordeal

An outlaw has left the camp in the Sherwood Forest to visit his family but there are spies everywhere. All while the villagers are beginning to grumble about their conditions scaring the local elites into believing that the villagers will revolt. Just recently, Jack the wagoner was killed, most people believing the Sheriff’s men were responsible for it. The Sheriff sees his chance and charges the captured Outlaw with the murder of Jack thus reducing the attention on the Sheriff’s men. This is wrong and this Outlaw will be defended by Robin Hood and the rest of the Outlaws to save his life. The true killer must be found or the Outlaws honor and a particular Outlaw will lose the ultimate.

Personal Synopsis

The Outlaws are saving their own after the Sheriff charges one of the men with a murder he couldn’t have possibly committed. No, he shouldn’t have gone out to visit his family but he just can’t be killed without a fair trial. The circumstances prove difficult to overcome until Robin comes to the rescue. This story is not a typical blame the innocent episode especially when the real killer is one of the villagers with ties with the Sheriff. The outlaws seek to defend the honour of the Outlaws because the villagers around may not trust them ever again.
