An early script of The Road Back followed a very different storyline. A young women from King Ian's war-torn kingdom named Margret was the source of Duncan's redemption. Valiant did not lead Duncan back to Kengray, instead he won glory leading an army in the name of King Arthur. Somewhere before production the storyline was changed to the script the episodes follows. Reasons for the plot switch are unknown, except for the fact that Valiant was given a more important role in helping Duncan to see the error of his ways.
