Valiant and Arn visit Bridgeford while camped nearby with Bryant's troops on their way to Northland ahead of King Arthur and Queen Guinevere for Michael's coronation now that his father has died, and resolve to see Rowanne again and try to make peace. But she wants nothing to do with them or Camelot, insisting she is happy away from them all. Then word reaches them that her two young cousins are missing, and Valiant and Arn get Bryant's permission to remain behind and assist in the search. They have actually been captured by Richard so they couldn't warn Bridgeford of his army's approach, and Camelot's forces are headed for a battle against them where they will almost certainly lose. Valiant and Arn have no idea how to help in either situation, but are desperate to get Rowanne to speak to them again so they can get information and just enough help to save all the lives of those involved.

That's the plan.
