Storyline

Princess Maude seems to have gained the upper hand having defeated King Stephen on the battlefield and taken him prisoner. Her brother, Gloucester, has been taken prisoner by the other side however and a prisoner exchange is arranged. It doesn't go well however 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 forces Tom to choose between them. Bishop Waleran reveals his true ambition. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

Matilda tells her son Henry (the future Henry II) that she is now Empress because "I rechristened myself this morning. One day you will be Emperor". In fact, she had legitimately acquired the title Empress nearly 30 years prior, when she married the Holy Roman Emperor Henry V in 1114 and ruled the Empire with him until his death in 1125.
