The French are losing the war because of the Greek fire that the Professor promised Lord Oliver. Chris and Kate find the tunnel that leads to La Roque and ask for Arnout. It turns out that the tunnel is a dead end, but Arnout is still climbing up the tunnel. Marek sees that Lady Claire has been taken by the British and is determined to rescue her. He throws a torch on the greek fire because Claire was not released. Half of La Roque is blown apart and the tunnel opens up right when Arnout is about to kill Chris and Kate. The French win the war and Lord Oliver is stabbed by Arnout. The people who die are: Deckar, Frank Gordon, Gomez and Baretto, Francois, and Donniger. The people who get back are: Chris, Kate, and the Professor.Marek stays in 1357 with Lady Claire. In the future, Kate finds the sarcophagus in the beginning and Marek and Claire are the ones on it.


Factual error: Both the English and French armies are wearing uniforms (English red and the French blue). An army would not have had a uniform at this time - each knight would have his own standard and colours - these colours would also have been worn by his squires. The peasants (bowmen) would wear their own clothes - usually a brown or other earth tone, and definitely not a red/blue tabard.

Trivia: Although the movie was almost a completely different story than the book, they did make reference to a scene in the book: when you see the guy in the beginning in the hospital, he has blood all over his face. The reason is because right before then he was talking about Quantum Foam and then went into convulsions, then started spewing up blood...gory, but a nice add in to let us know that the writers actually read the book.

Question: Why is it that they aren't allowed to bring any modern weapons into the past? The grenade didn't seem to be affected. A simple air gun with tranquilizer darts would be enough just for protection.

Answer: Because you can never know what kind of influence the discovery of such a thing by the local people would have on any of those involved. The grenade was not supposed to get sent back, but since it exploded, not enough pieces are left for local people to wonder about them if ever they find some. That would not be the case for a full weapon.
