Young Robin Hood is crossing through the Royal Forest towards Nottingham, and comes across a small group of the king's foresters, who order him to halt. Robin Hood explains that he is seeking to become one of the king's royal foresters, to which the men laugh. Angered by their taunts, he gambles that he can shoot an arrow at any target they choose, gaining their wallets if he wins. Disbelieving that the young man can ever be as good an archer as he claims, the lead forester points to a stag in the far off distance, marking it as Robin's target. Robin readies his bow and takes aim. To the men's surprise, his arrow pierces the Stag's hide and fells it instantly. However, Robin is unaware of the law that prevents hunters from killing the king's deer, under penalty of death. The men place him under arrest, tying the skin of the dead stag around his body.
The laborers are summoned to carry the bound Robin Hood in their sled meant for lumber. One of the laborers, a young lad named Will, seems hesitant to drag the sled. But realizing that it's useless to resist, he continues to pull while following the foresters into town. They pass a pub on the way to the castle, so the men decide to stop for a drink.
That night, as the foresters sleep, Will sneaks outside, and with his knife, cuts the hide binding Robin Hood.

Synopsis for Captain Quick: "Episode Nineteen"
In a clever ruse, Captain Quick has lured the Spanish fleet into the English harbor where an ambush has been prepared. His fiance, Marjorie had been struck down by Spanish bullets when she bravely tried to replace the English Flag atop the guard tower. Quick had seen this act, and believing Marjorie to be dead, he directs the ship to fire upon the Spanish without mercy.
In the tower, the guards carry Marjorie's limp form down the winding stairwell. They discover that she is still alive, and just in shock from a bullet that grazed by her head. They allow her to rest in one of the guards' beds, with her father Lord Barlow, keeping watch.
The English fleet is overwhelming that of the Spanish Armada, setting their ships ablaze with gunfire. The commander of the Spanish flagship orders a retreat from the harbor. Quick lets them run, so that they can warn King Philip of what happens to those that declare war on England. With the rest of the Spaniards surrendering, Quick heads back to dock, and then races to the tower. He fears the worst for the woman he loves. But when he arrives, Lord Barlow awaits him at the foot of the tower, and tells him that Marjorie is alive and well. With relief, Quick enters the room where Marjorie rests, and kneels by her side. As soon as she recovers, Quick tells her, they can be wed.
Days later, the wedding ceremony commences in full celebration. Lord Barlow, Quick, and Marjorie are all filled with great joy. That is, until they spot a flagship of the Queen's docking at their harbor. A messenger appears at the celebrations, and informs Lord Barlow that Quick is being ordered by the Queen to set sail for New England's coast. The Queen wishes him to fight off the Spanish privateers that are raiding the settlements. Once again, the wedding must be put on hold. And once again, Marjorie sadly watches as Quick sets sail for new dangers.

The crew is treated to a great feast, which is much welcomed after the trials of faring the dangerous sea.
Several miles away, Indian chieftains are sitting around a fire. They hate the white men that have intruded upon their land, and now with the addition of Quick and his crew, they are planning ways to get rid of them. Dark Owl, the greatest of the chiefs, makes a fiery speech about attacking their camp with arrows and spears. The other Indians, fueled by his words, dress up in their warpaint and scream threats to the white men as they perform the war-dance.
Back at the settlers' camp, the faint sound of war drums reaches the ears of Captain Standish. He warns Quick that the Indians may be preparing for an attack. The women and children are sent fleeing into the barracks, while the men load their muskets. Captain Quick and his crew eagerly ready themselves for a battle against a new foe. When night falls, chief Dark Owl leads the tribe to the edge of the clearing where the white men have their settlement. The Indians begin to bombard the barracks with arrows, to little effect. Dark Owl decides then to lead in a full on charge at the gate. Though the colonists are able to kill many of the Indians with their bullets, the tribe becomes ever bolder and more dangerous. It is Captain Quick that comes up with a plan. He and his men will meet their attackers outside and do battle. If they successfully cut down enough of their numbers, the tribe may have no choice but to retreat. Miles Standish admits it is a good plan, albeit a dangerous one. Will Quick and his crew be able to win the battle for the colony?
