Episode Summary

The Blacksmith's Daughter
The two would-be knights run afoul of Sheriff Robert when they stop him from abducting Rowanne (the blacksmith's daughter). Their stay at her home that evening reveals that she is far from a typical maiden in distress: the young woman has spirit and a deadly aim with a bow and arrow. The visit takes a near fatal turn when Robert comes to exact revenge for his humiliating defeat. Valiant and Arn also have to contend with Robert's powerful brother Duncan when word of their quest reaches him.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Valiant and Arn end the episode wearing different clothes than what they normally wear. But their tunics occasionally change colors during their conversation with Rowanne about her chances of becoming a knight. When this happens, it looks like they're wearing their normal clothes.

    • QUOTES (6)

      • Robert: "There she is – Rowanne! The beautiful thief who has stolen my heart."
        Rowanne (first line in the series): "I didn't steal your heart! You were born without one."

      • Valiant: "I have always heard that beautiful women should be worshipped and adored, not given to hard labor."
        Rowanne: "I'm not sure I like the sound of that. Being banished to a pedestal would be much too confining for my taste."

      • Valiant (admiringly): "Nice shooting (catches himself) – for a woman."
        Rowanne: "Show me the man who could do better."
        Arn: "There isn't one. I'd wager King Arthur himself couldn't have done better."
        Rowanne (sweetly): "Arn, you are a man of exceptional insight. Do allow me to pamper you with a templar of fresh milk and a plate of sweet cakes while Valiant's busy cleaning up."
        Valiant: "While I clean up?!"
        Rowanne: "It's only fair. After all, if it wasn't for you, Robert wouldn't have put a torch to my father's shop in the first place."
        Valiant (to himself): "You, milady, are definitely someone who could wear on my nerves."

      • Robert: "You'll learn to love me. And, failing that, you could always do as my mother did – just pretend."

      • Robert (to Valiant and Arn): "So, have you come to rescue the fair maiden?"
        (Rowanne punches him in the stomach and disarms him)
        Valiant: "No. I see no need. She seems to have things well in hand. Wouldn't you say?"
        Arn: "Looks that way to me."

      • Rowanne: "… And I've become the first female Knight of the Round Table."
        Valiant & Arn: "WHAT?!?"
        Valiant: "That's ridiculous. There are no female Knights of the Round Table."
        Rowanne: "You know that for a fact? You've been to Camelot and heard it from King Arthur's own mouth?"
        Valiant: "Well, no, but uh, you see –"
        Rowanne: "Then, we'll just have to wait and see, won't we?"
        Arn: "Not only is she beautiful, she is spirited and intelligent as well!"
        Valiant: "Arn, I suspect we have a lot to learn before we discover how best to deal with such a woman."
