After losing Marion to Holy Orders, Robin spends his waking hours in an increasingly drunken state and the outlaw band are left without a leader. Robin Hood has become a ghost.
Meanwhile, Abbot Hugo has cleaned out the family coffers and secured a release for his brother, the Sheriff, from King John’s prisons. But, the Sheriff isn’t convinced that his deadliest enemy has entirely vanished from Sherwood.
Marion is harbouring a secret which could lead to the capture of Robin, which she’s unaware the Sheriff knows about as he plots his revenge.
