Two hanging banners one each side of the gate with the monogram: “H & L”.
TWO SENTRIES with spears … slightly weddingly … red ribbons on their right spears. We can hear from inside revelry and celebration music.
We hear LAUNCELOT’s footsteps. The TWO SENTRIES are watching him. One of them raises his hand.
FIRST SENTRY: Halt, friend …
LAUNCELOT leaps into SHOT with a mighty cry and runs the GUARD through and hacks him to the floor. Blood. Swashbuckling music (perhaps). LAUNCELOT races through into the castle screaming.
SECOND SENTRY: Hey!
He looks down at his mutilated comrade.
