Wat Longfellow is rethinking his love life as the object of his desire, Winifred, who becomes available after the death of her husband. However the challenge is greater than expected, the Bailiff Baldwin also has his eyes on the widow and is using his position of power to take advantage of her and Longfellow. The outlaws join in with Wat as he tries to woo Winifred to marry him. Bailiff Baldwin begins to blackmail Winifred, dangling her farm as bait as he tries to force her to accept his hand in marriage. As the deadline looms, the Outlaws have a scheme to help Wat Longfellow and the Widow Winifred from the treachery of Bailiff Baldwin.
The beginning of the second seasons starts with a love story and a great cast. Donald Pleasence plays the antagonist of the story all too well but who is complaining really. This easy to follow love story plot that will not settle well for most progressively minded egalitarians, has a deeper story to tell of a woman’s abilities being questioned and the men that come to the rescue in one way or another.
