The Adventures of Robin Hood Season 2 Episode 7: Ransom

The Count of Severne is forced to pay a ransom for his son’s actions yet decides to tax the villagers of his land for this ransom. By chance Robin finds a frisky Sir Guy whom is on his way to pick up the ransom from the Count of Severne. After a failed attempt to appeal to Sir Guy on behalf of the villagers, Robin must find a way to help the villagers by playing the honor game himself .

Personal Synopsis

When upholding ones honor is more important than the suffering the poor must deal with it, it is only fair to have a lesson in empathy. Robin Hood plays the same game with these honor hungry counts and helps the villagers from such a deep blow to their pockets.
