Adam Bryant

Now thatThe Bastard Executioner's Wilkin Brattle has taken up the titular mantle, it's time to get to work. But his new job may not only be about chopping off heads.

On Tuesday's episode, Wilkin (Lee Jones) wrestles with his new role when a young teen girl is accused of treason. Fortunately for the hulking Grim Reaper, Lady Love (Flora Spencer-Longhurst) decides she would like to investigate further before dooming the girl to her fate.

However, as you can see in the sneak peek above, when Lady Love rides to the girl's home, her convoy is attacked. While everyone jumps into battle, Wilkin must first move Lady Love to safety. Will he soon be adding the role of personal bodyguard to his job description?

Check out the battle above. The Bastard Executioner airs Tuesdays at 10/9c on FX.
