Are you wondering how healthy the food you are eating is? Check it -

Isabella, if I wanted to kill you, you'd be already dead.

What do you want?

I wanna know why you've done a deal with the devil.

Why do you care?

The Prince... is evil.

It's not every day ...
a prince asks you to be Sheriff.

- Especially if you're a woman.
- You've been working with a traitor.

No, I'm working for myself.

I intend to be the best sheriff Nottingham has ever seen.

and you'll see for yourself tomorrow.

No, it'll never work, cos the Prince will fall.

-And you will fall, unless...

Unless you work with me.

Keep me informed, tell me the Prince's plans.

And I'll protect you when the King returns.

And what if I don't want to be your friend?

You'll find out what it is to be my enemy.

ah... you're threatening me, Robin Hood?

I could destroy you whenever I choose.

So what's stopping you?


Think about it, Isabella

The offer is open, but not forever.

Is Robin Hood.
Disarm the alarm!

- Quick! Stop him!
- Block the entrance!

I swear...

Find Hood! I want every soldier
of Nottingham outside!

Trouble, Isabella?

- Guards!
- You haven't seen anything yet.

- This should be interesting.
- oh, Not that interesting.

What exactly are we doing here?

Robin thinks he can charm the new
Sheriff into working with outlaws.

Look, we'll just see what she's made of , shall we?

Well it's not sugar n spice
and all things nice.

Meg Bennett...

The Sheriff's court, has heard
of your disobedience to your father ...

and your refusal to accept any
suitors he chose for you.

Lady Sheriff, one was a drunken sod,
the second looked like a donkey,

and the third was a ...
with the brains of a tree!

- Little wretch ...
- ?Please!

And the fourth you apparently
bribed to get back to York

with the money you stole
from your father.

He was a mummy's boy!
What use is that?

Meg, tell the Court why you've acted
in such a deplorable fashion.

Beacause I won't accept anyone
telling me how to live my own life

I don't want to marry!
Men are so...



I think England would be
a much better place,

if women were in charge.

Dream on, girl.

- Untie her!
- What?

Thank you!

People of Nottingham ...

Now maybe you can see the
kind of Sheriff that I am.

And as I've set Meggie free,

I intend to set the whole
of Nottingham free.

To be a fairer, more peaceful
and prosperous place for us all!

You are far too bright
to be locked up.

I think I need people like you
around me.

The last regime was
brutal and corrupt.

And in recognition of crimes
commited against the people,

my brother

Guy of Gisborne, shall be executed
here on Thursday at midday.

See? Maybe we can
work with her.

Yes...we'll see.


Isn't she marvellous?
How I've missed you

My lovely wife!

- Get off me.
- I am the new sheriff.

Thornton at your service.

And I'm sure you'll understand that
my wife has me to care for,

leaving me to care for you.

Rest assured you are in firm
and capable hands.

Now, if you excuse me,

My little wife and I have
some catching-up to do.

No deal with Thornton.

We shall get away. The villagers
are expecting a food drop.

I know. You go.

I need to stay here and
find out his next move.

- Well, I'm staying too.
- No, it's all right, Much. You go.

- I'll stay.
- Go.

You ran away!
You deserted me!

I loved you, cared for you.

-We were so happy together.
-How can you say that?

Guards! Guards!

- He's attacking the new sheriff.
- That's enough, let her go.

Take him to the dungeons!

Do you want Prince John to know
that he has a criminal for a Sheriff?

He appointed me.
He trusts me.

You've abandoned your husband,
broke man's law and God's.

My men will arrive here at nightfall

if they receive no news
that I'm safe...

Release me... or it's over.

Let him go.

Now it's the time I taught
you some respect.

Stop! Please...

If you promise not to hurt her,
I can make you rich.

- away with her.
- It's true I...

I know where gold coins are buried.
Handfuls and handfuls.

- Where?
- There's a mount...

Near Dead Man's Crossing,
in the forest.

I think I know it.

If you've told a lie, it'll be your last.

Lock her up.

Listen. I'm not resting
till you are free.

Oh, look at them, boys.

The ladies are getting
a little emotional.

You stay strong.

Get off me!

- Thornton is dangerous.
- For Isabella, maybe.

- No, for Nottingham, for everyone.
- So Isabella's an angel.

I just think we can work together.
Not like him.

- You're fully wrong.
- No, I'm not!

- Can't you see?
- See what?

Can't you see how she really is?

Kate, why are you
so angry with me?

Right. well, I should probably go.

Get off me!

I'll make you pay for this, bastard!

Men! If you disappeared,

this world would be a happier place.

What are you staring at?

I know you.

You're him, aren't you?
Isabella's brother?

- She's a friend of mine.
- Not that close, obviously.

Her nasty husband did this to me, clever!


Is he here?

She's terrified of him.

Well, she shouldn't have left him,should she?

You've always been so pleased with yourself

I saw you once.

The man in black on his black horse.

The big "I am"

Look at you now

Dirty and miserable...

and small...

and now you're going to be executed.

By the way you look, you're not far behind.

I hope you go to hell!

I'm already there.


It's here.

Get going, then.

- You expect me ... ?
- Don't you understand...?

Every time you cross me, every little word
or action, you make it worse for yourself.

I'll get you in a small and dark room.

Now go on.

Prove you love me.

Get digging.

If this is a tramp,
I will kill that girl.

Let me see.

You, get more men
You, what are waiting for?

Get digging!

Oh, come on,get on digging.
No, not like this, pair of idiots!

He is a pig, isn't he?

At least there's something
you and Isabella agree.

Listen, er...
About what happened earlier...

I know

I'm sorry
What for?

It's difficult, isn't it?
Is it?

Why? Because of Isabella?
No, no, because...

It's the way we live...
You know... and then Much...


(You both, I want this treasure
out of here by nightfall)

We'd better get the others.


- Just look after yourself.
- Yes

And you too.

- Just leave it, will you?
- But it hurts!

That's why they do it. Deal with it.

I?m thirsty.

Well, then, save your breath
and stop whining.

Nasty piece of work, you are.
Aren't you?

No wonder why Isabella
wants you dead.

- What will you do to her anyway?
- Oh, give me strength!

It's almost worth dying to be
spared of her chatter.

Oh, come on. You're here,
I'm here.

What else are we gonna do?

I found her a husband,
that's what I did.

- Good price, too.
- You sold her? Your own sister?

It was her best chance in life.
It's not my fault she made a mistake.

Well, of course it is. All of it.
You sold her. You are a monster.

Stupid girl.
You know nothing about it.

I'm not a stupid girl.

I'm Meg.

And I'm still thirsty.

That stone around your neck.

Suck it. It'll make you melt water.

Burial mount.
Danish, by the look of it.

They place curses on horse heads
to ward off intruders.

What are you doing?

Get a grip.
It's just a horse's head.

Golden bridal. Nice.

I'd say that's a chief's.

It's their treasure. They buried it with them
for the long journey to Valhalla.

Where's that?
It's near Norwich, isn't it?

No, Allan, Valhalla is the
Norse for heaven.

My beautiful wife.

What's going on in that pretty
little head of yours?

Nothing at all.

just the way you like it.

What have you taken?

Stealing from me, would you?

Just looking!

Let that be a lesson to you all!

Now, get the cart! The sooner you get that
to Nottingham, the better.

- Right. We'll get rid of him.
- We must take his gold first.

- And make Isabella Sheriff again?
- Sheriff!

We'll have a donkey
for an archbishop then.

Kate, I want you to stay and watch
the horde. Munch, you too.

The rest of you, come with me.

Hey you stop, stop, I say!

You're on my land.

Well you pay me a toll, and
I guess I might forget about it.

This is not funny, is it?

Are you scared?

What of?

"What of?"

The day of the execution.

Do I look scared?

Actually, no.

Terribly, yes. one out of ten for
personal appearance, but not frightened.

I'm almost impressed.

It's like you've got
a clear conscience.

And why shouldn't I have?

Because of all the awful things
you've done in your life.

I mean, no-one actually seems sorry
you're on the way out today.

Doesn't that make you sad?

Nothing can change what people think of me.

What's done, is done.

And if I am to die, then so be it.

Is your life really that empty
that you don't care whether you live or die?

I'm starving .


Keep the strength on.

There must be something good in you.

You don't know me.

Besides, I thought you hated men.

I do.

I do.

- Start loading the gold now.
- Much


Can I talk to you about something?

I really like Robin.

And I think he likes me.

But nothing will happen,
maybe because of you.

Would you talk to him for me?

Tell him we're just friends?

Yeah, of course.


Right. We're almost ready.

Much, when the cart is ready,
I want you to get out of here.

Alright? Good luck.

Thanks, my friend.

I should enjoy spendng your gold and gains!

He might come back to haunt you.

You are the one who has
nightmares, precious.

That's it, we're done.

- Start loading!
- Well, let's get loading.

Isn't this my lucky day?

My first day of sheriff
and all these riches falling to my lap!

You're luck could easily change.

Well, let's ...

This treasure is not for you to take, Thornton.

- And who's gonna stop me?
- Robin Hood.

Isabella, where do you think you're going?

- Move out!
- You, with me.

The rest, take the cart out of here!

Much, the cart!

"I really like Robin
And I think he likes me.".

- Get after them!
- Much!

Isabella! Isabella!

Wait! Wait!

- Much!
- I'm sorry.

We don't have time for this.
We have to find Thorton.

There's something I have to tell you.

What are you talking about?

Come on, we have to go!


Oh, thank God...

Are you alright?

I was a fool to turn my back
on you. Please, help me.

If you promise to fight with us
for King Richard, then I'll protect you.

Yes. Of course.

You and me, Robin.

I think we can work together.

I always thought that and
I think you too.

- It's a deal.
- You won't regret this.

- How can I repay you?
- Well you can start handing the gold.

Tomorrow Knight's Glade.

Of course, you must give it to the people.
It's all theirs after all.


Isabella, you'll suffer for this!


John, escort the sheriff back to the castle.

- Thank you.
- This way.

She always manages to get what
she wants, doesn't she?

Kate, just leave it please.


I don't like the look of this.

We shouldn't have touched that burial mount.

Supersticious peasants!

They're just bats!

Get back here, you cowards!

You have disturbed the dead.

Somebody help me ...

Get back!

You invoked the Viking curse!.

You will be visited by suffering,
madness and death!

Playing with the devil

Big mistake, Thornton


You don't say much, do you?

Robin sees you as an ally.

- Stick with business.
- Typical of men.

There's not just strictly business
between a man and a woman.

If he's done a deal with you, it's
for the good of the cause, nothing else.

- How can you be so sure?
- Because I know Robin.

I think that if he feels love
for anyone, it's Kate not you.

We found him in the forest.

Muttering something about Viking ghosts.

- He must be locked up.
- Yes.

Madhouse is the best place for him.

He's a danger to himself,
and the people around him.

And if he mentions something about being
Sheriff of Nottingham, just pay no attention.

He was the Queen of Saba last week.

Nottingham is well free of you, Thorton.

And don't even think of coming back.

Because if you do, your next
destination won't be an asylum.

Where you really belong...


Release her.

- Isabella,you're back!
- Thank God!

I'm not so sure my brother would
feel the same, come on, let's go!

Will you release Guy, too?

What? You're mad?
He's our enemy.

- But ...
- You see?

You see how he manipulate us?

A few ours in a cell with

a cold-hearted killer
and even you lose your wits.

That's the poison of men, Meg.

None of them can be trusted.

My brother will get exactly what he deserves.
Now come on


- Thanks, but no.
- You must eat.

For me.

- It's the least I can do.
- You did more than enough.

- I didn't do anything.
- Yeah.

- You made me think.
- About what?

Someone I used to know.

She saw good will where there was none.

She made me a better man.

What happened?

I destroyed her.

I destroyed everything.


I want some guards behind me
and I want the rest of them hidden.

Understood? Good.

"Sire, I write to you
with a great confession"

"and I hope you'll find me a heart to forgive"

"By way of an apology,
I would like to offer you ... a gift".


- What are you doing?
- I can't leave you here.

You do this for me?

Thank you.

This is touching!


- Guards!
- She didn't know what she was doing!

Yes, she did. How could you?

I set you free, and this is how you will pay me?

We're not the same. I try to do things
out of love, and you out of hate.

How dare you?!

I suppose I should be grateful.

Now I know the only person I
can trust is myself, I'm on my own.

You've done this, Isabella.

I would say the same for you.

and if you two lovers want to be
together, you shall

You'll both die.

Come on we don't want to be late for Knight's Glade.
Where's Much?

Probably attempting to catch breakfast.

- Kate, are you alright?
- Fine.

Let's just go.
Don't wanna be late for Isabella..

This is for the good of everyone. If
we can get a Sheriff working...

- Yes, I know.
- Will you listen to me?

When we get back, I think we'll
need to sort some things out.


... there's really no need.

She's, obviously, your priority.

She's worth more than any treasure.
Don't let her slip through your fingers.


You came then.

I'm glad.

Of course. We had a deal,
You and me. Remember?

- I do remember.
- Working together.

For the good of Nottingham

Absolutely. That's all that
matters now, isn't it?

Please, take it.
You've earned it.

You're my knight in
shining armour.

Yes, that's me.


Life's so full of disappointments, isn't it?

Now I decided to stand
on my own.

Thought about what you said. obey your
every command, do whatever you say.

- I offered you friendship.
- No, you threatened me.

I won't be so frightened a woman.

Come on! Take them!

- It looks like you were right.
- I usually am.

- The next time you must listen.
- If there is a next time.


Come on!

- Kate, Come on!
- Get them!



- So, why did you get there?
- Eh, nowhere.

I just wanted to be alone, that's all.

Hey, come on. You can tell me.

You were leaving?

Why did you spring there for?

You alright?

Yeah, I?m fine.

Robin, what's the plan?

We're gonna take that gold back, today.

- What about Gisborne's execution?
- Well, that's a perfect distraction.


We'll do it when everyone is
looking at the platform.

When they get out, we slip inside.

Allan, Tuck, get through the army.
John, through the kitchen with Much

Kate, you come with me to the West gate.
We gather there. Come on!

Bring out the prisoners!.

The girl.

- I'm scared.
- When it ends, it'll be very quickly.

Come, this way.

As you must know by your own experience,
Guy of Gisborne is an enemy of the people.

He must pay his ultimate penalty.

This woman tried to help him escape justice,

Therefore, she must share his fate.

In the future, if anyone challenges
my authority,

He will suffer the same punishment.

Have the condemned any final words?

Very well, Isabella. You win.

Kill me if you must, but not her.

I'll do whatever you want,
but don't take her life.

- Proceed with the execution!
- She's just an innocent girl!

What do we do?

I said proceed!

For once, I agree with Gisborne.

Hood! Kill him!

Come on!


You didn't think you could get
rid of me that easily, did you?


I've come to take what's mine.
Your life.

Hey, hey,
she doesn't deserve your help

Come on!

?Guy, no!

You alright?

We have to do this quickly.
Come on!

Did you think you would get away with it?

You've betrayed your husband for the last time!


Hey, hey! Where are you going?
We've got what we came for.

- I have to help her.
- She's our enemy!

Kate. I told you to come back.
I warned you. I have to sort this out.

Here, take this. I'll catch you up!
Come on!

- No, you don't!
- Don't you dare!

It's over.

- Just leave me alone!
- You're finished.

Don't come any closer!

You're going to die, Isabella...

With these.

No, I beg you, please.

I'll give you any thing you want,
just let me live.

I see it now.

I'll be a good wife.

I'll show you the love
of a good woman.

Get up

Stop crying, will you?

- What have you done?
- What I should have done years ago.


Your first murder, Sheriff

I thought you had killed him,
but you were not man enough.

I only kill when there's no other way!

You'll be blamed for this.

The murderer Hood is at large,
but not for long.

Listen to me!

We take your precious gold.

And in case you want to know,
the deal is off.

Come on.

I rest for a while.

Here we go.


I always quite liked you.


You can say it, you know

- Say what?
- Say what?

You're dying to.

All right.

I told you so!

You finally saw what sort of woman
she really is.

Yeah, I did.

And I saw the sort of woman you are.

You're brave, compassionate.

and beautiful.

Make sure all his friends are dead

I don't want Prince John
hearing anyone's lies about me.

See to it.

And the next time...

It will be you...

Robin Hood.


I know the truth about how
your father really died

Let me go, my father's inside!

There are still things you
don't know about your past.

Robin, you could be the best shooter in England.

- Roger of Gisborne, you are a leper.
-No, don't let them do this.

Guy you must act like a man,
not a child.

I was thinking about you the whole day.

You waited for me to get away,
and you stole my wife.
