The Adventures of Robin Hood Season 1 Episode 32: Secret Mission

Peregrinus is in Nottingham seeking out Robin Hood and has a couple of surprises for the outlaws. When the Sheriff stumbles across the Outlaws camp with an unconditional pardon, everyone becomes suspicious with the terms but the idea of a free pardon is still appealing. However, in order receive this generous offer they must be willing to fight for Prince Johns army. This calls into question the loyalty of the Outlaws and Peregrinus is watching intently to see whom the Outlaws will side with. To stop the Sheriff and Prince Johns soldiers, Robin Hood is joined by Peregrinus to fight off the tricks by Prince John, with royal consequences.
