SPOILER ALERT!! – Prince John (Toby Stephens) arrives in Nottingham. Publicly, he is here to meet his loyal subjects, but privately he wants to put an end to the Sheriff’s (Keith Allen) and Gisborne’s (Richard Armitage) way of running things. The Prince feels there’s only room for one sidekick, but who will it be? In the dead of night he asks Gisborne to kill the Sheriff, and, soon after, he summons the Sheriff and tells him to kill the treacherous Gisborne. The two men finally face each other in an epic duel. Tuck (David Harewood) informs Robin (Jonas Armstrong) that the Prince has been touring England, buying the loyalty of nobles to help him seize King Richard’s throne. Robin decides to steal the Prince’s gold to stop him and recruits the Locksley villagers to help the outlaws ambush the Prince’s retinue as they travel through the forest. However, they succeed only in capturing the Prince’s “double” and a treasure chest of stones. Episode seven of season three airs Saturday, October 17th @ 9 p.m. EST/PST on BBC America.
