Synopsis: When Athos is kidnapped and taken back to his estate of Pinon, he and the Musketeers must battle against a land hungry nobleman to protect the helpless people Athos abandoned.
Review: In this episode we get to learn a little more of the back story concerning Mi Lady and Athos’s marriage to her.
Essentially Mi Lady pretty much left a stein on Athos’s honour when she murdered his brother, but as we get to know Athos’s sister in law you begin to wonder if she may well have been pushed into it. So you are still left asking questions.
The back-story is all packaged in a run or the mill Musketeers teach the villagers to find and fend for themselves sort of story, which though entertaining loses points for originality.
On the upside though we get to see the decommissioned Captain Treville fighting alongside his Musketeers and we also get a bit of a hint of things to come in that Treville has been holding something back from Porthos.
Ultimately it is a story that brings the musketeers together in a mission to help a group of helpless farmers defend themselves from a tyrannical Nobleman, who thinks nothing of the common people that do all the sweating, bleeding and dying in order to run the land.
But best of all for my money was the amazing soundtrack and incidental music tracks, which punctuated the action and conveyed a lot of the emotional beats, but never felt invasive.
- Some fantastic action and acting performances
- Story-line not the most original
