061:

Arthur fights Lotte, Pellynore (of the questing beast) shows up and kills Lotte. Gawayne is not pleased at all about this and we get a foreshadowing of Pellynore’s death at Gawayne’s hand. Remember, Lotte is Gawayne’s, Aggravayne’s, Gaheris’, and Gareth’s father and while these will be round table knights, you can see how there are factions within it that hate each other due to blood lines and revenge.
