#27 - Even if I Lose the Light...

Tatoe Hikari wo Ushinau tomo... (たとえ光を失うとも...)

Aired: Apr 16, 1980(JST)


The Knight escapes while Oscar tends to Andre. The doctor tells him to keep bandages over his eye until it is healed to avoid blindness. Oscar decides to investigate Royale after the Knight steals 200 new rifles. She questions Orleans, but learns nothing, and is instead taken to his salon where young intellectuals and "Liberalists" from all classes gather regularly to talk. Oscar investigates the Liberalists under the guise of light conversation, but the Knight is watching from a distance and decides to take Oscar hostage in order to blackmail firearms from General Jarjeyes, her father and the one in charge of all the Royal Guard's military weapons. After being held in a cell for two days, the Knight asks Oscar to write the ransom letter, falsely thinking that the "weak pride of nobles" will lead her to do so. When Oscar does not return, Andre takes off his bandages, dons his Knight costume, rides to Royale, and steals Oscar's cell keys. She captures, severely wounds, and unmasks the Knight, who turns out to be Bernard, but Andre's left eye becomes permanently blind. In anger, Oscar almost blinds Bernard's eye in retaliation, but Andre persuades her to let Bernard go unharmed because he is able to help the common people. Bernard tells her that he and his men are only using of Orleans' Liberalist position to use his manor as a hideout, and they have no loyalty to him. Oscar gets Bernard to pay 1000 livres for the stolen guns and takes Bernard to hide and heal in Rosalie's house. (Source: Wikipedia)
