Edwin Apps came back in season three (he appeared also in episode The Pit 29).


Edwin Apps, episodes The Pit 29, The Rock 39 (as landlord who a huge amount of the gold from Bolgar and his sons) and 'The Mission 54' - Apps does not appear with such neatly coiffed hair in Crossbow. Instead he has a long scragly white beard and an eye patch in his role as the slave auctioneer in the wasteland. He has the entertaining pleasure of auctioning off Gessler. Edwin Apps is nowadays a good painter! He still looks the same as in Crossbow. More about him on the gueststar site - He has an exposition in London at the moment! - 2019. April 2021 he died.



Above: The gueststar and stuntman Mr. L'Abbaye we know him from episode 7 Santuary, one of Dante's men. He returned in the Mission.  Below: also Gessler's prison! 


They meet 'the Prince of the Wasteland' and are shocked when he reveals himself. The pursuit through the forest look like the scene in episode 13, Misallience


The mill is probably at Jasse de Sauveterre. This mill was also in episode 'The Wind Wagon' and that's recorded at Jasse. The environment can best described as no forest, flat hills filled with small stones and many stone walls. And many rare flowers like orchids.


Horst tells them: "I've changed. I've sufferend and now It's time for you to suffer."

Tell is forced to answers about 'the secret' Horst wants to pilfer.

Again Tell and Gessler are attached to each other ad are being chased by the prince of the wasteland. And Gessler tries to influence Horst, like he tried with Gaston in the Misalliance.


Tell enjoys the new Crossbow he found near the porch. Despite the warnings not to go further, Tell enters the porch. A new bow, Tell kept in almost the whole season.

The rock of Horst, field 2

1988                                                                                                2019


I specifically searched for this rock and came very close, but the rock was partially in the trees. I could not get the same position on the photo. C. Petit shows how the rock stands.

The tilted boulder with a piece off it

 2019 this huge stone is present at shots in front of the gate of wasteland.  

Below: Zoomed in    

It's for sure this fields. Look below and above. Tell walks towards the gate. But the stones around the gate are grown with trees, it changed and I didn't get the right photo angle.


The same place in 2019
