Scarface's last words before he dies.

Reconciliation is the thirteenth episode of the second series of The Animals of Farthing Wood. It was broadcast in the UK on 30 March 1994 and is the Series 2 finale.


Bold and Whisper arrive at the park, and, as Whisper looks for food, Bold crawls away to die. In the park, the animals celebrate Fox's triumph over Scarface- but Scarface makes a shocking return, vindictively killing Mrs Rabbit.

As Scarface drinks from a stream, Adder sneaks up on him and bites him in the leg, poisoning and finally killing the tyrant. Adder tells Toad that she killed Scarface and the news spreads among the Farthing Wood animals.

Whisper enters the park and tells Fox and Vixen of Bold's condition. They head off to see him and Fox apologizes to Bold before he dies. Ranger and Charmer arrive and Fox finally gives the young foxes his blessing.
