The Adventures of Robin Hood Season 2 Episode 9: The Hero

The tax collector enacts his power across the land and has enemies both near and far. When the tax collector who is also the sheriff’s brother is found dead, a pig thief is believed to be the murder. The villagers hail the hero who killed the most hated tax collector and help his get ahold of Robin Hood and the Outlaws. Soon enough the so called hero makes himself unwelcome within the camp all while the Sheriff seeks revenge for the life of his brother.

Personal Synopsis

Not every hero deserves a heros welcome. Although the tax collector presumably received the fate he deserved doesnt mean that this was an act of heroism. This episode shows us how important the truth could be and to not take advantage of those that wish to help.
