Things are heating up in Nottingham between Robin and Isabella, but how will it play out?
Robin Hood – BBC America 9/8c
“A Dangerous Deal” – Robin breaks into Isabella’s chamber at night to strike a deal. If she will keep him informed about the Prince’s plans, he’ll protect her when the King returns. She calls for her guards but Robin escapes. Isabella presides over the trial of Meg, a young woman charged with disobeying her father and refusing marriage-suitors. Isabella likes Meg’s attitude and frees her. Isabella is determined to win the people’s respect. Robin is hopeful for Nottingham’s future but her rule is brought to an abrupt end when her husband, Squire Thornton, arrives and announces he’s taking over as Sheriff. Isabella orders her guards to arrest Thornton but he tells her if his men don’t receive word of his safety, they’ll ride to Prince John to inform him she is a deserting wife, a criminal. Isabella would lose everything. Robin and Kate surreptitiously watch Thornton dig up a Danish burial mound—the gold coins in the ground. Robin finds Isabella and agrees to get rid of Thornton if she agrees to give up the hoard and accept his deal to secretly share her power. But can he trust a Gisborne, male or female?
