SPOILER ALERT!! - A beautiful and aristocratic woman, Isabella (Lara Pulver), gallops into the forest, hotly pursued by sinister men on horseback. Just as they are about to pounce, Robin Hood (Jonas Armstrong) rescues her, but not before she’s shown herself to be no push-over. There is clearly more to Isabella than meets the eye, but is Robin smitten? And is he right to take her at face value and give her the benefit of the gang’s protection? Elsewhere, Gisborne (Richard Armitage) returns triumphant from the court of Prince John (Toby Stephens). Armed with a formidable troop of elite soldiers and instructions from his new royal master to kill Robin Hood, Gisborne is contemptuous of the Sheriff (Keith Allen) – he does not need the patronage of the mere Sheriff of Nottingham, who is still in Prince John’s bad books for debts unpaid. Before long, skirmishes break out throughout the forest as Gisborne and his men battle with our hooded heroes. When Little John (Gordon Kennedy) is separated from the others, he finds himself going undercover with Bertha of Bath (Denise Black, Queer As Folk), the larger-than-life promoter of a troupe of gladiators on their way to perform in Nottingham, But has Little John bitten off more than he can chew when he poses as a gladiator? Episode five of season three airs Saturday, October 10th @ 9 p.m. EST/PST on BBC America.
