The Adventures of Robin Hood Season 2 Episode 18: The Shell Game

Pick’s hands are quicker than the mind sometimes and his antics are getting to some of the outlaws. However, Robin is anxious to use Pick’s skills for a daring jewel heist in London but there is suspicion that Pick is up for the job. Once in London, Pick’s friends show their own abilities to tease and trick Prince John’s soldiers.

Personal Synopsis

Conmans were exceptionally well with tricks of the eye and likely the best candidates for fooling even Prince John’s soldiers. This episode shows the value of these skills and that even the most crooked conman or conwoman can be used in the name of King Richard and for the causes that help the outlaws.
