Storyline

Princess Maude seems to have gained the upper hand having defeated King Stephen on the battlefield and taken him prisoner. However, her brother, Gloucester, has been taken prisoner by the other side, and a prisoner exchange is arranged. It doesn't go well and the self-styled Empress Maude and King Stephen are again at war. Philip's life is saved when his brother unexpectedly arrives in Lincoln. He manages to get access to the quarry to complete the cathedral and also a license to hold a market. Aliena's suggestion that they hold a fleece fair in direct competition with Shiring has tragic results. Jack and a jealous Alfred continue to fight and bicker and force Tom to choose between them. Bishop Waleran reveals his true ambition. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

Ellen: Philip is wrong. He will understand that he made a mistake.
Jack: Philip is stubborn. You push against him and he pushes back. It would take witchcraft to change his mind.
