Knights of God Episode 9 (ITV 8 Nov 1987, with Nigel Stock)

In Episode 9 Mordrin and Arthur are meeting on neutral ground, Arthur has taken both Gervase and his father Owen along. Although Mordrin orders Gervase to kill Arthur, he is not the one he has been brainwashed to take out and doesn’t do anything. Arthur realises that Gervase has been brainwashed to kill the one who will unite Britain and that his plans for Gervase to find him will now not work. Arthur tells Owen to take Gervase back to Wales and let him be a fisherman. Julia however tells Arthur that Love will always win out and if she is with Gervase he will do whatever they want.

Collee is also still insisting that Gervase and Julia be put on trial, if found guilty they will be sentenced to death. The jury are locked at 6-6 which luckily gives Arthur the casting vote.
