Personal Synopsis

Ich habe ganz vergessen. This episode features a group of non-english german speaking “bavarian” acrobats that can in fact do acrobatics. The toll of being secluded out in the forest away from family has gotten to some of the outlaws and rightfully so. Even with their motivations understood, they would risk their lives to see their loved ones and at this point who can blame them. Robin heroically returns from France to the hapless outlaws that need to be rescued from the grasp of the sheriff.
