    • Ellen: I have evidence!
      Waleran: There is no need for more evidence. The prisoner has been condemned.
      Ellen: Evidence of the murder of a future king... of regicide.
      (Crowd murmurs)
      Woman: What is she talking about?
      Waleran: She's a madwoman! She's lying to save her son. That woman was condemned as a witch years ago and has evaded the law ever since. So, we'll have 2 hangings today.
      Jack: Mother, run. Run!
      Ellen: No. There's been too much running from the law in Kingsbridge. I have the evidence here.
      Philip: Quiet! Let her speak!
      Ellen: Evidence of treason. The chalice was planted on Jacques Cherbourg at the request of Prior James of Kingsbridge. He was tortured and burned. An innocent man!
