The Adventures of Robin Hood Season 2 Episode 19: The Final Tax

After a horrible accident, Tom is seriously injured with the unlikelihood of surviving. Sir Charles Bixby, the lord of the lands, is more focused on the property tax (death tax) that would be gained if Tom died rather than the recovery of one of his villagers. Friar Tuck must do something to stop this horrible tax that can wreak havoc on a suffering family but Sir Bixby has help. Where will Friar Tuck find his help?

Personal Synopsis

The death tax has appeared multiple times in this series and all too often used by the lords or the wealthy to hurt the local villagers. This time Friar Tuck is ready and armed to bring justice back to the right cause. After the conniving efforts by Sir Bixby and his Bailiff, they soon butt heads with the villagers and a pesky friar.
