Synopsis

Bursting into Camelot, the triplet brothers known as Black Thunderbolts challenge the Knights of the Round Table to jousts. Lady Celia draws the challenging knight's name from a bowl, but she substituted the Silent Knight! Messages posted in the Forest Perilous bring the SK to the fight. Guinevere gives him her scarf, and Lady Celia is heartbroken. The brothers cheat, subbing for one another, and the SK is thrashed and his weapons broken. Yet he perseveres and punches flat the last knight. Lady Celia doesn't need him to speak. "Your heart and mine beat as one!"
