The Scarlet Pimpernel is an undercover vigilante assumed by Lord Smedley and Lord Topper. The figure is praised by everyone except Mr. E. Blackadder, who sees nothing admirable in "filling London with a load of garlic-chewing French toffs... looking for sympathy all the time simply because their fathers had their heads cut off". The episode ends with Blackadder killing the two noblemen claiming to be the Pimpernel. Prince George was about to give some money to the Pimpernel just before Topper died, so Blackadder claims to be the real Pimpernel in order to get the money.
