At the last moment, Lancelot arrives at the combat—as sensational as ever!
A young maiden let Lancelot out of the dungeon in exchange for a kiss. This caused him a moral pang of conscience, but he'll deal.
At the first charge, Meliagrance flops down and yields. Lancelot is having none of it. The big baby! The fight hasn't even gotten started yet.
Lancelot looks to Guenever in the audience, and she gives him the thumbs down. Apparently, she thinks Meliagrance is dangerous to keep around. He could spill their secret.
Wanting to always be chivalrous and show mercy to his opponents, Lancelot tells Meliagrance that he'll put the odds in his favor: if he'll agree to fight, he'll unarm his left side, and will fight without a shield with his left hand tied behind his back.
Meliagrance agrees, and Lancelot is prepped.
Even though Lancelot turns his unarmed side to receive Meliagrance's sword blow, almost at the same time he strikes his own blow and kills the other knight.
