Agnes (so this is how the lady is called) is beautiful and very interested in learning how seduce men and enjoy love. While they are enjoying their blossoming romance, they are caught by Martin's gang who starts a fight with Arnolfini's men and robs them. Agnes founds herself unfortunately hidden in the gang's chariot, and when they discover her, she's raped by Martin who's manipulated by Agnes in falling and caring for her (though the attraction is somewhat mutual) and so he wants to keep her to himself.Steven does not give up and tries to regain his girlfriend storming the castle where she hides in, while we don't know how much exactly Agnes is manipulating Martin to stay alive until the very end.
