In the extended DVD version, the scene with the witch admitting to being Nottingham's mother is edited back in, along with a subplot in which she spies on him around the castle (thus explaining her knowledge of events Nottingham has learned of but which she has not yet been told, something Nottingham took to mean she could see the future) and additional footage which makes it clear that Nottingham's true allegiances lies with the Devil, which explains the line "Look to the beasts which share our god."
