Trivia

This episode was originally meant to focus on the character of Nasir and his background as a professional assassin. However, as Michael Praed decided to leave the show for Broadway, the episode was substantially re-written at the very last minute. The earliest scenes in the episode, in which Nasir seems to leave the band, are from this abandoned script. The basic story of the original script was used as the B plot of the Third Season episode 'The Sheriff of Nottingham'. See more »

Goofs

The soldier killed by Nasir while having a rest against a wall during Nasir's sneaking into Wickham, is later pouring wine for Gisburne and The Sheriff on De Rainault's return to the village after Loxley's murder. See more »

Quotes

Robert de Rainault: Do you remember Loxley? That was a rebel village, wasn't it? Now it's just a name and a tangle of undergrowth.
