#26 - I Want to See the Black Knight!

Kuroi Kishi ni Aitai! (黒い騎士に会いたい!)

Aired: Apr 9, 1980(JST)


A masked vigilante called the Black Knight begins stealing from the rich and giving to the poor. His popularity increases to the point where marches are being held for him in the streets. Andre begins spending an abnormal amount of time outside during the evenings, causing Oscar to suspect him of being the Knight. She starts attending every ball available, because that is where the Knight usually strikes. He does so one ball after Andre mysteriously disappears. Oscar chases him into Palais Royale, Orleans' manor, rumored to be an anti-monarchist meeting place. Oscar is injured by the guards, but the Knight stops them from killing her. She escapes, collapses on the street, and has a nightmare where Andre is the Black Knight and is killed during a mission. Oscar is rescued by a peasant family housing Rosalie. She tells her that she left the Polignacs when they tried to force her to marry Guiche in order to expand their prestige. Oscar asks if she would return to her manor, and she politely declines, saying that she would rather live in the city of her birth away from nobles. Back at Versailles, Oscar confronts Andre, but he says that he is not the Knight and reveals that he has been going to a church where nobles and peasants gather regularly to hear about "The New Age". Andre dresses up as a fake Knight and begins stealing regularly in order to lure out the real one. One night, the real Knight confronts Andre and slashes his left eye. (Source: Wikipedia)
