The Adventures of Robin Hood Season 2 Episode 13: The Friar’s Pilgrimage

There is only one jar of honey left in the camp and with winter coming the outlaws will need to learn beekeeping. Friar Tuck is making a pilgrimage to Canterbury but Canterbury is in Kent a place known for its honey so Robin decides to join him. On the way reaches a town where a witch hunt is on. Robins interference creates an even greater sticky situation than running out of honey.  With some witchery Robin can finally get back to the sherwood forest where he can only worry about getting honey.

Personal Synopsis

A lack of honey and a friars pilgrimage creates the motivations within this episode.  They both come across a village in distress to find a one Count Deprez on a witchhunt. However this witchhunt is merely a part of a power struggle between Lady Margaret and Deprez. Robin is now victim to this and is placed behind steel bars in the jail but for how long. Not the most elegant of episodes as the story somehow became too complicated and the performances show some drag amongst the actors.
