Marians cousin is back at Fritzwalter seeking the whereabouts of Robin Hood to deliver him a message. The message is to inform Robin about the ransom for King Richard being held unfairly by the king of Austria. Marian has a powerful dream which causes distrust in the messages intentions. Robin, being loyal to King Richard, feels compelled to intervene on this travesty by the king of Austria yet Marians subconscious premonition cannot just be overlooked as a mere superstition.
Dreams are not typically the motivators for our lives but when a dream shines a light on the dark should we not heed its warning. This episode asks this question. Robin, held by his devotion to King Richard, would willingly go into danger to rescue the monarch almost without any recognition of the dangers. Marians distrust was enough to enlighten Robin of those dangers.
